Seeing as the event doesn't start til tomorrow, my guess is the prompt won't show until tomorrow. Just a hunch though.

Hmm... not even showing on the Events, Challenges, or Combat Missions tabs.

Ivan forgot to click the Activate checkbox on the patch?

 

EDIT:   Nope.  It starts tomorrow.     Diddle checked the POTATO checkbox.      Remembering stuff is OP.

I admit I was also confused until finding this thread, and then seeing the line in the news, the relevant part is day after the update:

The competition kicks off on the day after the update is released at 3:00 AM PT.

So another day before I support the Eagles (who won the Super Bowl) as opposed to the Sharks (who did not win the Stanley Cup).

Wouldn't it be grand to put the "go live" date/time along with the patch update notification? Instead it's tucked away somewhere down in the article... SHEESH! Rocket science.

I have to say that when you say "With release blah blah update" then to start the contest the day after is well, kind of lame, in my opinion. I'm sure it's a technical issue, right? 

Well see you all tomorrow then.

Gotta agree.  This certainly isn't the first time this has happened, and seems to be par for the course. 

I understand it's probably easier to take a day or so to hammer out the kinks in a new patch release before starting an event, but I'd bet it's worth the time to overstate the actual event launch date and time.

Shoot yea... I got people in match, after match asking about not getting asked to join either team. Sadly another fail, especially for those players who do not visit the forums.

Disinformation:  Fake News:

The video stated that after 7.7 launched you would have the opportunity to choose a side.  It never mentioned one or two days later.

Another WG fiasco in the making as usual.

I don't see how this is a WG fiasco.  The notes say the contest will begin at 3am the day after the patch.

A little reading does go a long way. Happened to be looking at the forums before I could upload the game so I wasn't baffled.

Language in the notes is pretty sub standard I think.

I fully expected this would start today too with all the hype and "when 7.7 goes live " etc..   Its only another day but I find the excitement thinking there's something new in the game, then finding out, "oh it's tomorrow" when I thought it was today frustrating.
