So we didn’t receive an anniversary event this year and to add onto that we’re only getting double rates? Last year had a month of 3x now we get 2 weeks of 2x. Great deal, studio wildcard. 

They didn't have to give you two weeks of any rates. 🤷‍♂️

I’d be excited for the crunch this week and summer bash (prob one of my favorite events besides winter wonderland), IF there wasn’t this elephant in the room of the servers for consoles unplayable FOR ALMOST A WEEK! Then go get an evo event in the middle of it, that’s like putting a box of cookies in front of a kid but just out of their reach and not giving them one, but telling them they can have one!  People are getting pretty ticked, I know I’m one of em!  Then I see something on Twitter from a day or so ago that says console patch is coming early next week???  At this moment, I’m sure most of us don’t care about skins, chibis, Ark 2 news or hell even the summer bash event right now.  What we want is to know that you hear and acknowledge our outcries of server problems, and that doesn’t seem to be happening.   There’s no reason for servers to be this messed up for almost a week and the community to hear nothing but the sound of crickets on behalf of Studio Wildcard.  People are loosing things, tames, items and TIME on something we payed for.  You don’t go buy a car and pay full price and only get the 4 wheels and the engine, but that feels like what we have received.

Was really looking forward to enjoying summer bash but Crystal Isles server 1378 has been offline for 5 days or so and nobody can get in at all. Everyone on that server is going to lose their bases, tames  etc. People that logged off on the server can’t even get in to get their characters either

I’d imagine that will be a lot of people quitting the game  and not coming back. Lots of time and money spent all to be lost well played Wildcard.
