Not A Dilithium Weekend?

The game load screen says that from 4/18 thru 4/22 it is a bonus Dilithium weekend. However, in game it is not. What gives?
What happened to those unique forum ranks I paid for?

    Weekenders usually don't start until the friday dinner time.

    More than likely a typo.

    Nope, it seems they canceled it and moved it to next weekend. Even deleted the forum post on it and removed it from the launcher. In game calendar now has it for next weekend.

    The launcher is still advertising it as this weekend. :( I think Cryptic owes me two rich dilithium tokens. False advertising and all.

    Yeah its how they usually do it, just delete and pretend nothing happened. It's call the Cryptic Maneuver.
    C-Store Inc. is still looking for active members on the fed side. If you don't have a fleet feel free to contact me in game @stegi.

    Cancelled because they had too many things going at once. Featured TFO starts. Bonus Progress Token Weekend.

    Well I kinda get why they did it. Just sucks that I wasted two of my very very rare rich dilithium tokens before I noticed that it had been cancelled. Oh well. I'll file a support ticket and ask for them back. Off to play the new content. Have a great weekend all.

    Cryptic doesn't owe anyone anything. They have every right to change things around if they want to.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    It seems sort of obvious that the decision to make this a Bonus Token Weekend was made very late as they had to reschedule the Bonus Dilitium Weekend.

    Moral of the story is don't believe whats written until you've confirmed it.

    Easy to do for a dil weekend by doing a single normal node and seeing what the results are before using the rich dil voucher.

    And they'd not owe a replacement as the voucher gave you the ability to mine the rich vein, nothing about it stipulates the quantity of dil you get.

    Don't they put an icon for the Bonus under your Character Potrait?

    Yes, they do. This TRIBBLE happens all the time, because no one talks to anyone at cryptic, and then no one updates Kael. Its getting damn ridiculous at this point.

    They just announched dilithium weekend a day ago, and now they suddendly moved it and deleted the news post. Do you really blame players for not checking? I wouldn't expect they change it in so short a time, without any notice to the players.

    I can't agree with this thinking. Cryptic have advertised an event and moved it at short notice. It's an inconvenience to those who were expecting it and have commitments on the weekend that they have moved it to, that they might not have had, had they known.

    Exactly. I've just come on this evening and found out the hard way, when the dilithium wasn't paying out at the dil weekend values.

    This is actually disgusting and demonstrates an utter disregard for the game's players. They don't seem to get that customer service of this level results in people getting fed-up (or words to that effect) and not playing.

    The fact that they can't even sort their calendar of events out does not bode well and does nothing positive for one's confidence in the longevity of the game.

    This argument is going nowhere. The event was moved. /Thread
