    Nice, now we have somewhere we can discuss the event! :)

    So, first up, please give us a way to collect Mount: Watermelon Banana Boat on each of our characters! That is just such a unique and fun looking mount it's going to be a little cruel having to try and decide which character to claim it on! ;)

    Second, it's a Summer Event, yet there's no permanent swimwear costumes to be purchased! Nexon, once again you're missing a real opportunity here. I have to wonder about the people at Nexon making the marketing decisions, they seem to be constantly missing great opportunities for increasing sales! I guess it's probably too late for this year but maybe next year?

    Figured it might be a good idea to give everyone a heads-up that the Hot Time Event appears to be ending an hour earlier than the announced "Stay login during this hours 19:00 UTC to 23:00 UTC to receive a Watermelon Slice x100 as a reward from August 1 to August 14" as I have now logged in on two seperate evenings shortly after 22:00 UTC to receive no reward! :(

    Do you guys still experience the same issue?

    First time it happened to one of my characters was on August 2nd, 2018. I have 7 characters so I was in the process of logging each character in-game. I did the exact same routine with each character: I logged in-game, claimed the Watermelon Slice x100 from Ellora's Storage and then completed the Daily Crafting Achievement followed by completing 4 of the available quests from NPC Haley (Summer Banquet; Hakain's Crossing Repairs; Ingredients for the Summer Banquet and Watermelon Delivery). I did that with 6 characters with no problems, but when I logged my 7th character in-game Ellora's Storage was empty, NO Watermelon Slice x100 so I checked the in-game and it was showing 22:22 UTC.

    It then happened again on August 4th, 2018. Knowing that there appeared to be a problem with the daily event ending an hour earlier than announced I was logging each of my characters in-game to claim the Watermelon Slice x100 from Ellora's Storage on each character. Unfortunately just before I logged out on my 5th character I was distracted with real life events for a short time, so by the time I returned to log my 6th character in-game it was 22:14 UTC and Ellora's Storage was empty, NO Watermelon Slice x100! Obviously when I logged my 7th character in-game after that the Ellora's Storage was empty, NO Watermelon Slice x100.

    I did create a thread in the Bug Reporting forum: [BUG] Hot Time Event and @Cream suggested that "those Riders that did not receive their x100 slices to please submit a ticket to support" so I also submitted a support ticket.

    So as to avoid this happening again I have been trying to get all 7 of my characters logged in-game to claim the the Watermelon Slice x100 from Ellora's Storage before 22:00 UTC, even though the announced time-frame is supposed to be 19:00 UTC to 23:00 UTC. It occured to me last night that maybe the event is actually starting an hour earlier as well as ending an hour earlier but I haven't had chance to test that out yet.

    Thank you for explaining the issue in detailed. We will also test this out for you and for the other riders that can't claim their watermelon slices x100. Also, I would like to ask, since you have mentioned that you have logged in all of your 6 characters. Are they in the same servers like

    2 in Baellas
    2 in teleo
    2 in raken

    Or are they distributed to all servers like

    1 in baellas
    1 in teleo
    1 in raken
    1 in koroshimo and so on?

    Will be great if you can clarify this one.

    All my chars (3) are on Baellas even i was online 36hrs aprox and nothing honestly... is the first even after 2 years and months playing the game that i dont want to continue playing.... you need 3000 watermelons for a 30 days item... its crazy... when you just can get 70 per day and the daily/login reward (100) has bugs... better try to fix the awakened torkai package.... that package has all my attention... =)

    Is just my personal view point but this event has to be repeatable and not daily... that way we can get more watermelons...

    I seem to recall seeing previous posts/comments that sometimes staying logged in-game for long periods of time can actually cause some issues, especially with rewards that are distributed via Ellora's Storage. I think that's why Nexon tells us to fully log out of the game when they run special log-in events.

    Awakened Torkai was confirmed to be up for the next Maintenance if and only if the issue with the package will get resolved immediately :)

    As for the watermelon slices, we have repeatedly tested it in the game and it gives us the same result. NO ISSUE. still, we are not giving up searching for the cause of the players that are not getting the watermelon slice when they logged in. Also, the login event for watermelon slice will end till August 14. Web post will be updated soon.

    At what times are you testing? For each of my three characters who have missed out on the Watermelon Slicex100 I logged each of them in-game after 22:00 UTC but BEFORE 23:00 UTC, despite the announced "Stay login during this hours 19:00 UTC to 23:00 UTC to receive a Watermelon Slice x100 as a reward from August 1 to August 14". So I now have one character who has missed out on the reward once and another character who has now missed out on the reward twice! Each of my other characters who logged in-game before 22:00 UTC each received the reward.

    Is there any other information that we could provide that might be helpfull?
