After hearing the exciting news of planned support for upcoming holidays and one time events, one might wonder how much warning we’ll get before these events start. If you’re like me, you wont want to miss a second of it and Colin Johanson has heard our pleas. In response to a forum post, Colin said that depending on the scope of the event we’ll either have just some in-game clues (probably geared towards “smaller” events) or some interface elements with warnings or countdowns, such as the Ascalonian Ghost event chain in the Plains of Ashford.
Colin’s response after being asked, “…for the one-time events,will we get much notice before they occur, and if so how much?”
Sometimes yes, sometimes no, it’ll depend on the event and the scope of the stuff going on. Some events will be designed for the community to work together and piece together information based on stuff they see/discover in game we don’t give any pre-warning about what so ever. Other one time events might have things in the game showing warnings or count-downs until they occur.
