PLEASE announce events in the game

As the title suggests.
I usually dont get to catch up on the forums over the weeked, and so when I last read them there was no announcement of a weekend event. I just come back to see that you announced one, so nearly missed it.

Also, how are other people that dont read this forum meant to know what is happening.

Why not have a notification in the game to announce the special weekly events?

    There is almost every week announcement on Thursday regarding weekend event. Only this week because of update announcement was delayed. Also in the game pop up information screen appear rare - that's true.

    Agree. This was suggested before, not sure if they implement it but they certainly should

    100% this .

    I've been playing for months, but only looked at the forums for the first time today. Never had any idea that there were special events.

    i'm was the only one in the guild on forum, we also had one on FB.
    So we drop it in chat whenever its announced.

    The weekend events pop up every time you re-open the game after closing out/shut down. I have to close out frequently because my game freezes quite a bit.

    I don't think he means the increased event. The "other" event...

    I've never seen any notice about a weekend event. I just get an ad to purchase a bundle every time I login

    Me too. That is the only notification I get.

    I'm really confused - does your game not give you a flash screen as soon as it loads that says "Survivor Weekend!" (Or whatever)? Mine always does - as well as flash notices about the show. You may be closing it too quickly. I've done that before.

    Just curious - I'm on android. Are you? Or ios?

    I'm on ios. I don't get a flash screen, just a small box in the middle of the screen advertising a bundle to get coins or phones

    I'm on Android. If it only shows it once a weekend then I guess there is a chance that I have closed it without reading it every weekend for the last 2 months.
    My game goes from loading to the campsite, and will pop up with the small bundle pack.
    There is nothing in between or nothing that pops up afterwards
  • zbotzbot Legendary Moderator Posts: 6,493
    I'm on iOS and I get both the event and about the show and also the bundle.
  • blynknzblynknz Member Posts: 1,988
    Can someone take a screenshot next time so I can see what it shows. And let me know when in the sequence it pops up

    Sounds like this is a bug affecting a few people then. Is there a process for reporting bugs?

    I'm pretty sure I've never seen any notification about the weekend events in game. I'm on android btw

    Im pretty sure i've seen it a couple of times.. but that's me and my device (samsung s4).. so, the pop up announcement must have a device compatibility issue..

    We're working on a solution to this.

    I usually see it. it pops up when you first log in and vanishes on the first touch.
    on android as well.

    Welcome to the forums @DanDare, this is the place when it gets lonely in company of only walkers. :smile:
    As for bug reporting you may learn the hard way or check the wiki:

    @blynknz More walkers outside the camp to shoot. "the herd is coming" or something.
