    Default Time's of the Carnival's Launch

    I was curious to see if anyone knew when the Carnival Event was going to kick in? I've searched the forums and googled my butt off but haven't really seen anything about it, just that its released today. Any info would be awesome!

    World Events usually start the day after Patch day (so Thursday). Not 100% sure if that is 'on-the-dot' Thursday.

    World Events usually start (phase change and end) at 3:30pm PST on Thursdays. I would assume that COTA's pre-festivities will start tomorrow =)

    No, it had nothing to do with NA/EU. This was my reply to someone on another forum:

    It used to go out with patches until Carnival of the Ascended last year :3 (1.7 Hotfix #11 3/16/12). One of the COTA weeklies reset on Wednesday that allowed people [who noticed] to get an extra piece of the mount currency and thus were able to get their mounts a week early. Since then, WE start and end on Thursdays.

    Indeed - to officially reiterate, World Events start @ 3:30PM Server Time (EU & NA) on the day following the update (typically Thursday.)

    In this case - the preliminary phase (Phase 0) of the Carnival of the Ascended (Parade Prep & Dragon Pinatas) will fire off at that time tomorrow!

    And if all continues as planned you'll see the following phase changes on these days:

    Phase 1 - March 7th
    Phase 2 - March 21st
    Event End - 4/4

    Please note - these are subject to change at anytime!!!

    Thanks all,

    Good to know.

    When I asked about this in 50 chat today on Faeblight, I got called the "c" word, for asking.

    guessing the C word wasn't "curious" ...

    stupid 50's chat.
    But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty you need only look into a mirror

    Thanks, Elrar. Would it be possible to maybe put that in the patch notes? I read through them twice, and there was nothing that indicated that the event didn't start as soon as I installed the patch. It's especially confusing to those of us who aren't familiar with the schedule when the rest of the stuff in the notes takes effect immediately.

    Agreed. Look Elrar (and the rest of you), if not for the communication and fill-ins of info from the community, where would this game be?

    There is quite a lot you don't document, that you could easily do so with a sentence here, a sentence there. Assuming that everyone either knows, or passing the buck to the community to inform everyone else is just not professional.

    Simple communication is not hard, but it is a hallmark of professionalism. And wisdom.
