Hi @moonman3d !

Unfortunately this event ended the 2 of November at 7:00 UTC. I think you took your screenshot at 9, maybe it had already ended in that time?

Hey IKO, thanks for taking the time to respond, the steam event showed 8h left but never mind, I know nothing can be done. Would be an idea to have all unlockables available at sometime for 2 weeks per year or so though. Have a good day!

Guys, the event wasn’t even announced… can’t you extend it for a week?


Agreed. The event was too short. I had a very busy week and couldn’t finish it up.

I agree. I finished all challenges, but I was sure a patch was comming after it ended with an aztec event. As there was no update, i think it can be extended, as many people didnt knew you had to play the last challenge in normal plymouth either.
