French Flakes are gone !

I got up early this morning to finish my Frogly breakfast cereal (great with catsup) and the box is empty! 

 

WG. please stop staggering these event ends.  It's hard enough remembering one date (that practically is the previous day).  An event ends when an event ends.  It shouldn't peter out piecemeal.

Heyo Captains,

We are aware of this situation and are currently determining the appropriate course of action following on from this.

We should have more information for you in the next few days.

Fem,

Damn! Good thing I powered my way to the Colorado last night instead of waiting!

(Not that it will make a difference; those few extra French-flake tokens don't push me over any particular eligibility line.)

WG has been good about these things in the past, and @Femennenly weighing in so quickly the way she did suggests that WG acknowledges an oops and will rectify appropriately.

If I recall, was't the end date visible if you hovered over a snowflake, when its token or coal value was displayed?

If it was, it would have been Aug 20, which is the "memory" end date of the event.

This one is going to be tough.  I want compensation, but I had only a few ships to finish, evenly split between Coal and Frogpoints.  One guy earlier had only Coal left - 12,000 Coal.  Hmmm....

But as you should know by now, that date is early in the morning, at server reset - NOT close of play on that day.

There was a preliminary announcement that was removed.

I won't say what was in it, other than it would have been very beneficial to us that had no rewards left to collect.

That's my point.  The actual end date is Aug 21, but to compensate for the early morning time, we remember it as Aug 20.  You say the Flakes become too soggy on Aug 20 I read that as coincident with the end of the event.  Unless, that is, I have a reason to really think about it, which in a flyover I don't; I just want to know what the flake pays.

The date on my flakes was 8/18   I debated that night if I really wanted to finish the last few...I didn't.

Don't think I bothered getting more than maybe 8 ships worth of flakes done, out of 77 ships.

Oh dear.

I took advantage of the fact that we had a day at the start of this patch before directives began, and that I finished the first directive quickly, to knock all mine off in co-op as fast as I could.

Excluding the ships I obtained in between, I think I had them all done by the end of the first week.

WG, THIS is how you get people to play the low tiers; put some sort of flake on them and let us trade it in for something.

Not certain how your point relates to my post.  Actually, my statement is pretty much the opposite of yours - these things do nothing to effect my playing.  Which may make me an outlier, but there has yet to be a coal/steel/FXP ship offered I cared to work for.

Yep, I noticed that yesterday.  I had acquired a couple of new ships that I'd not knocked those off.  Stay alert, stay alive....

In that case you have not lost out, but if you got the French destroyer unlocks and like them you potentially missed out on earning free permacamos for them.

Again, not concerned.  As in, I've maxed both IJN DD lines and both Russian ones, as well as USN.  I play my Khab, ignore my Shima and Huru, have yet to touch the, um, Benson?  Got a Hindy and Zao, can't be bothered to play them.  I ignore CV and BB lines....

I like playing my, say, 10 favourites.  I enjoy the game enough to run a premium account, to keep the game afloat.  But honestly, Kuma, Minekaza, Leander, Fiji, and Khab, and sometimes Mino are all I play.

It happened at 7:00 PM CST on Monday.  I had a little over 2000 coal to 'burn' so I started a Co-Op just prior to 7:00 while I was waiting on a teammate to finish a battle.   After the battle I noticed the flake filter was gone and then looked for the flakes...gone.

Fem, 

Very anoying. I have 240k coal and still 3k coal I could get. The Smolensk would have been a more or less a insta buy after the server come up tomorrow.

While you are completely on the right side of things to expect that an event will run to the previously stated dates, this is why I don't want until the last minute to do anything in life.

Again, you are not wrong and WG needs to correct this.  I just avoid these possibilities if at all possible.

Was the sheer amount of ships that force me to take a break from co op. I had something of.. 230 ships I could have earned coal and tokens with. And I felt brain dead after more then 10 co op battles in a row, especially with those slow low tier ships.

I had around 175 to get through and had them done in 2.5 days, do NOT follow my example :Smile_teethhappy:
