Well, screwed again. Eight hours notice before event (with two hours down for scheduled maintenance) and it won't let me leave my current alliance already. Guess I'll save my PP for the next raid...

I think I'm going to use the raids to just gather up pp for the upcoming training events rather than burn them during the raid (or is that what I was supposed to do?)

At least they hype the raids for a good week -- and we know the exact start date -- beforehand. I just hope I was the only person who failed to use my psionic powers to read the developers' minds so I could know when alliance stuff would be shut down and the event starts.

Out of the blue.

With no prior warning.

Last training was Friday after raid so it's not as if it wasn't expected

And was rushed, unexpected, and unnecessary. I wish they would learn from their mistakes.

By the look of the new raiders i guess they caught the artists by surprise as well

I don't see how having training start now is a mistake. Not being ready for training may be a mistake but that's not the games fault.

PP gathered from Training is in the form of training packs which I believe will disappear after the event.

They have. Thus far this has been more then smooth. Everything is in the store without hassle, nothing is stalling, and the new cards look great. About 10 000x better then last time.

Are you advocating the position that going from "coming soon" to "it's here, by the way alliance functionality is off" literally overnight is somehow okay? With no warning? Not everyone participated in the last training, or remembers the exact parameters of two-three events ago, or even had an account set up then.

I was negotiating a move to a new alliance, and I was also building up my new cards and, you know, working and being a family member and having a social life. You say I "should have known" to prioritize moving alliances because I "should have expected" alliance functionality to be turned off without warning?

It's like if you were in school and you know there's going to be a midterm exam at some point, but it isn't scheduled on the course syllabus. Then suddenly the professor emails you "Hey the midterm will be tomorrow, by the way I've removed all course materials and lecture notes from the school's website so hope you are randomly ready!"

let this be a lesson, when it says an event is coming, it means get your shit together.

Our leader was clued up enough to change the leader positions a day before the event started.

old saying, you snooze, you lose
