It should be in 30 minutes now, right? When the event order starts would be logically.

It should be going up in less than 10 minutes (2PM EST/8pm CET).

@Lyskir, do you happen to have a screenshot of the incorrect time in-game? I'm sorry for any confusion caused.

This sucks. I got the banner notification saying that the event started with double xp so I finished 3 of my orders that I set up for the double xp, and I got regular xp. What a waste lol

I get it, they went with UTC, you're two hours behind that. It was factually accurate, just not very helpful.

Hi there. It's pass 2pm EST (14:00) here and I just completed one order worth 750 xp and didn't get anymore than that. Is the double XP event bugged?

MESZ stands for Central European Time in German, right? If so, the in-game news was actually inaccurate by their time (it say 6pm CET/MESZ - UTC is only mentioned in the Uplay news). :( I'll be sure to send this thread along.

The double XP event doesn't seems to be on right now, as far as I've experienced

It would be great to receive word from an official source on whether the event is really live or if they are experiencing some sort of issue.

It is live now,just had a number of matches with them, and ah I only selected the uplay link, I thought they were both showing the same time. My bad.

Hey everyone,

We're taking a look at this. It seems there may be an issue with the event on PS4. Can you confirm if that's the platform you're currently using? The team is on top of it either way and we'll keep you updated if we find some problems.

Thank you, FredEx919, for the response.

I am indeed having issues regarding the double XP event using a PlayStation 4 system.

I finished a bunch of orders and got no double XP on PS4. I finished them after the event was announced in game...sucks. :(

On Ps4, xp is not doubled in AI or PvP. Please, fix it.

08-25-2017, 08:04 PM
lol same i set up all my orders to finish them in one swoop and was confused why id not get any more exp than usual.

RealJayDee1984
08-25-2017, 08:13 PM
Yup, same here, PS4. First slightly confusing starting time infos, and when it actually started and I finished my orders - nothing. Wouldn't be as frustrating if today wasn't pretty much my only chance to participate in that double whammy event.

Not really sure if any of us are even surprised at this point.. You just keep doing to yourself Ubisoft.

Don't knock ubisoft as a company for things that are common on all games. Sometimes things don't function as they're intended. Getting on the forums to bash the company is counter productive. Just inform them of what the issue is with detail so they can fix it. Now they know what the issue is, so they're working on fixing it. That's all there is to it.

Yes but when it happens all the time it's ****ing annoying.

Sure it is. But at the end of the day, it's just double xp. It's not a big deal. At all. Disconnecting from a game sucks. Lots of things suck. But it's never THAT serious. It's still a fully functional game with some balancing issues and connectivity problems that while inconvenient at times, aren't game breaking. I've gotten my money for this game 10 times over based off how many hours I have put in. Dropping from a game or missing out on xp is a minor hindrance to a game that is overall a very enjoyable time. And everyone knocks ubisoft as if they're a terrible company. But if they were so terrible, people wouldn't keep buying their games. Why? Because they're awesome. And they are also notorious for listening to feedback from their community and fixing games that other developers would have given up on. It shows their commitment to the product they create and a yearning to never let their player base down. They took games like rainbow 6 and the division and turned them around a full 360. I also believe they are doing the same with For Honor. This is probably the most balanced the game has ever been. Revenge is no longer the cancer that it once was. Gear is no longer the game breaking problem that barred new players from enjoying the game. Sure the centurion is over powered, but they'll fix that too. We even have dedicated servers on the way. Have faith in the company that hasn't given up on you. At the end of the day, it's just a game. There's real people on the other side of that computer screen that are doing their best to make a game they love enjoyable for you. Cut them some slack.

Cut them some slack? That was 9 months ago.

And they really didn't save the division or rainbow six. But nice try.

Seeing as the game hasn't been out 9 months, that's inaccurate. As for the other games, there's a bunch of people who disagree. But you're entitled to your own opinion my friend.

If you take closed alpha then it's actually been longer.. yet here we still are mistake after mistake.

You keep accepting that mediocrity ;)

That's incorrect as well because if you combine all of the beta and alpha tests, it would not equate to 3 months of game time. So if anything it would be 7 months total. And I'm not accepting mediocrity. This game is not mediocre. It is the first of its kind and is finding it's balance. You don't believe it is mediocre either because otherwise you wouldn't still be playing it 6 months after release and be posting on the forums. There has never been a game that gets everything right. For Honor is no exception.

But I didn't post on here to debate with you. I was merely saying that there's no need to bash the game devs for something they didn't even know wasn't working properly. And now that they know it isn't, they're fixing it. No need to respond to me. Thank you for your criticism of my post though.

Hi guys, the issue should now be resolved (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1733052-Extra-XP-Fest-(PS4)).



As compensation for the loss of extra XP from matches and orders, we are extending the event by 6 hours on PS4 with a new end time of Monday, August 28th at 10:00PM EDT / August 29th 2:00AM UTC.
