We thank you for taking the time to write this and understand your concern. In the past you are correct we were able to give exact times, however with the new changes we are often at the mercy of varied schedules, hence why current events have not had an exact end time. This is something we are working on as we get the schedules of those able to implement these changes all on the same page. Hopefully soon it will no longer be a matter of a guessing.
For now we have been announcing end times on our Twitter and Facebook pages, when we know they are coming down. Regretfully, we do understand that these are not the ideal methods of getting the word out. Since we have more time between now and the next upcoming events, hopefully we will have everything back on a schedule and will have those end times for you.
As for the Tokens, they should be usable again when next year rolls around. So no worries! I will discuss the possibility of getting an NPC set up or something for turn-ins in the future, however we are very limited on what we can do.
Thank you very much for your reply. I do appreciate hearing from you on this.
Also, thank you for the info on the general info about schedules and how that affects the ending of events, etc. Knowing that now will allow me to be more prepared and flexible in working within future events until matters get settled and smooth again.
I don't read twitter very much and tweet far less, but now that I have seen there will be some forewarning in that media and here also in the patch notes, I shall endeavor to review those areas more frequently as well.
And thank you for considering the NPC idea. I know things are limited now and you all can do what you're able to do.
Thank you very much for all your work and efforts, as well as everyone else, in RO2. And thank you, again, for your reply and insight into how things are currently working behind the scenes in times and stuff.
Have a good rest of your summer
