Im not 100% sure if anyone else has noticed this but the hamster giveaways where suppossed to be every 30 minutes however I constantly kept finding post 15 to 20 to 25 minutes after eachother.
they where never actually 30 minutes apart.
I know that this 'event' is run by staff members and I appreciate it may be difficult to time perfectly but what I thought would be a good idea if possible is for It to be npc operated so that it automatically posts in the forums exactly 30 minutes apart. Either that or stop stating that the hamster giveaways happen every 30 minutes and change it to say completely random.
yes I know that this would quite possibly be a bit more hassle but personaly I think it would be a vast improvement and am happy to hear any constructive criticism

I think they did the best they could on timing. I can't honestly think of a better way of handling that part of the giveaway.

Yes I agree with u craven they do very well as I stated but small improvements would make it great I wouldnt be so bothered if staff members were not stating that it had every 30 minutes but instead stated it happens randomly. This could easily be solved by comunication between staff members or even just a quick little bit of training for staff members for events

15-25 minutes apart seems to benefit everyone in my opinion. Why complain just because it was posted at 30 minute intervals. You know there are behind the scene things that happen regularly that can alter schedules and maybe something like that happened. Maybe they found they had more items to giveaway than they initially thought and the posted time wouldn't give them enough time to do it properly so they surprised everyone and did it in a slightly more random way. No harm done that I can see. Now you may argue that they should have told everyone that, if that was the reason. Well very rarely do things go off as planned even in the real world so give them credit for doing a hell of a job and next time you have a complaint (and I really mean the tc world in general) put yourself in the other persons shoes first. Chances are they may see things a little differently.

Ok first things first this isnt a complaint forum im not complaining im simply suggesting improvements and again ill point out ive already stated yes they do a fantastic job and I also stated that I know they do so much to make this game so good and I agree with what ute saying but why would they post in the hamster posts stating stay tuned for more giveaways every 30 minutes? Im not complaining.
Personally I dont care if I win anything as in my opinion there is loads of other players who could benefit so much more from this than me and personally think if it was possible to set it up so it happened exactly every 30 minutes it could massively benefit the lower level and worse off players as theyd have a much better chance of winning than the well off players who already have so much.
like I also stated this could be alot better if staff communicated with us more often telling us about any event problems as personally id be happier knowing if theres a hold back on things or if they need to alter it.
as a thought what about an event specific area on the forums for any event related happenings.

Seriously it's such a logistical pain in the arse to run these giveaways in the first place they're never going to run to a schedule - to be honest I'd much rather have them start the giveaways at least a little randomly so that people couldn't just check in / lurk on the forums or specific bazaars just before they were due to start anyway.

Your argument that having the giveaways stick to some sort of rigid schedule increases the chances of low-level / worse off players winning is nonsensical for the record.
