Community Day Errors, an Update, and More

9

I don’t usually work on a Sunday, but if the amazing Fazes can work in the middle of the night on a weekend to deal with a problem in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, I can share the details with you on Sunday morning.

Due to Daylight Savings Time ending in many countries recently, some areas of the world experienced Community Day from 10am to 1pm local time, rather than the stated 11am to 2pm. The HPWU developers are aware of this issue, but they weren’t able to fix it everywhere in time.

Right now, if the event started in your local area at 10am, and Community Day is still active, it will be extended to 2pm.

If Community Day hasn’t started yet in your local area, it should start at 11am and run until 3pm. (However, I recommend starting the game at 10am and checking, just in case).

This is the full announcement from Fazes on the issue.

Due to the timezone issues with Community Day we have extended the event by 1 hour. If you are in a timezone where your event starts at 10am, your Community Day will still run until 2pm. If you are in a timezone where your event starts at 11am, your Community Day will run until 3pm. For those players in timezones that had an early start, please stay tuned for more info coming soon. Sorry, again, for this inconvenience! Thank you to everyone who has reported and helped troubleshoot this issue!

There should be some sort of makeup day for areas that only had Community Day from 10am to 1pm. Stay tuned–we will have a post as soon as we learn more.

Read the text again, it was extended only for those where the event was still running.

When it was already over, they were not able to add the hour, it didn’t come back.

Central Time zone started at 11, so should have ended at 3pm. They killed the event suddenly around 2:10pm. Caught a group at my location in the middle of their Forest 5 battle. It booted them from the battle and the entire questline page disappeared. Anyone who hadn’t hit collect on their step lost out on the rewards.

Faze’s quote/statement didn’t make sense imo – if your event started at the planned 11am, there was no need for it to be extended to 3pm, your start time was correct & therefore the 2pm finish didn’t need to be extended to 3pm(comm day is a 3 hour event, not a 4 hour event). A quick check of TimeandDate.com or the basic clock function on any smartphone/tablet would have prevented Niantic from making these type of oversights/errors. EDIT Hope those of you that got gifted 4 hours for this comm day made the most of it, and that you choose… Read more »

The event opened up early for us, but they extended it. Only had about 30 minutes to work on the event due to normal activities on Sunday. Did not get to last set of tasks due to time and needing to open up levels. For us, the normal 2pm start time would of been much better, also not on a Sunday. I think we wouldn’t of made it through the last chambers of the event. Need more lessons in and to level up. For these short events, maybe have a start button so people can start when they can access… Read more »

I completed my final chamber and tried to collect the final reward just 4 minutes after 2 pm thinking I had until 3 pm. I was so disappointed when I couldn’t claim the reward. Contacted support and was told “tough luck”. It’s a game, but I was pretty proud I completed everything solo and was looking forward to a great reward claim. Event wasn’t extended as advertised. Total bummer!

Finished the final chamber for the 4th challenge at 2–got nothing for the last chamber. I though I had until 3 pm for the entire event, and am disappointed. LOVE the game, but I want legit and fair playing.
