Event Window for Last Charges (More than 6 Hours)

Magagumo Posts: 38 Just Dropped In
I'm sure I'm just joining a chorus here, but wouldn't it be nice if we had more than  a 6 hour window to finish our last event charges?

With a worldwide audience, regardless of start times someone is being forced to play in the dead of night in order to not lose 25+ ranks because of a little thing called "Sleep".

Yes, I am now more aware of this issue because Terrors in Shadows has its last charge available from 11 PM to 5 AM EST, but regardless why can't it be 7.5 hrs? I get you don't want to have it tick over to a new charge at 8 hrs (though I'm sure there's easy coding to set a maximum number of charges granted per event and still allow a reasonable window to finish our accrued charges).

Please, let's at least give folks a chance to wake-up at a normal time and finish their events, rather than demanding a disrupted sleep schedule.

    Something really needs to be done about this. Forcing people in unlucky time zones/with strict schedules to pick between being competitive in a PvP event or sleep/work is a horrible way to treat customers (if you want them to stay as customers).

    Yeah, this really needs fixing. My personal favorite would be setting it up to add multiple charges every 24 hours (3-4 to keep most events the same) then end the event 23 hours after the last recharge.
