No, the event timer has not run out. Yes, I tried logging out and logging back in. What is going on with these events?? It is baffling to me, that most of the time there are no events at all. This makes the game boring and tedious. With no way to win anything, I could be stuck on a level for days. Where's the fun in that?! I watch as many ads as I can to earn a boost or extra moves, thereby earning you ad revenue, so there's no way I'm going to spend actual money buying things in the shop.
Then, when I do get an event, they seem to appear all at once. Why not stagger them so there's always something going on?!
Finally, more often than not, the events seem to get messed up somehow. My episode race has abruptly disappeared. So has my soda squad. I keep getting a pop up saying I have until whatever time on Sunday to win gold bars with my individual soda squad points, but my soda squad is gone. No gold bars for me?
I see in the announcement thread that it says you will end an event early if there are technical glitches. I can accept the occasional glitch, but this happens every. single. time. I get events. You're a tech company. Why can't you present these events without constant glitches?? One would think you'd want people to actually enjoy playing the game.
