I got this as a popup notice this morning when I entered each manor.. I applaud them telling us the time schedule for the full week, and having the first day not be 6 am or something, where the free hour is over before you even wake up to find out about it.

Hello friends.

Add 10 hours, i.e.

10/20 @ 2pm (PST) = midnight (Monday)
10/21 @ 11am (PST) = 9pm
10/22 @ 6am (PST) = 4pm
10/23 @ 9pm (PST) = 7am Friday

Very nice! Since the update, my game has been considerably slower. Yesterday there was a big improvement, even though it was a Sunday. Today, however, it has reverted to the previous state and worse. Loading times are now: 30" to load a HOS and 45 to 60" to replay! To return to the manor it also takes some 60"!!! So, spending most of the happy hour waiting for the game to load is not my idea of a happy hour at all!

Thank you very much Carlin_Fallen

I will make another cup of coffee to stay awake at midnight. No promises

With all the glitches, re-done scenes and almost universally despised "improvements" made lately, it is more like unhappy hour for a lot of us.

I used to love HH. Not bothering to play it today. Did my daily collections at all 3 manors, then that's it for me in this game.

This is the first Happy Hour that I did NOT Boost. Sooooo very glad I didn't. Game kicked me out at least 8 times. Restarting the game took forever.

I expected the HO Scenes to load slowly, but 45 seconds?

Again, sooooo very glad I wasn't Boosting!!

That's Pacific Standard Time or Daylight?

We are still on Pacific Daylight Time. I believe we 'Fall Back' to Standard Time next weekend.

Let me check Facebook, they usually post an Event Announcer that has a link to a date/time converter/countdown clock.

I thought so, but that's what PST means, standard time. I was wondering if they were messing with us.

Wow! The first time I got to participate in the Free Hour, Thanks DM.
UGH it did take forever to load, but I did get to play more than I usually do.

I'm Central Time, which is 2 hours ahead of Pacific Time. I'm not getting the Happy Hour energy, or am I way off on my time calculation?

Next time, try going to the Main Screen, then in again. It took me about 4 tries to get the 0 energy on the HOS, even though I didn't load the game until the HH had already started.

I don't know if this is the issue, but you only get the free play on whatever mode they're offering at the time - if you try and choose your own mode it takes the usual energy.

switched on to play ready for happy hour, 5 mins early, expecting to be automatically taken into happy hour on clicking into a scene. nothing. Continued to check in every few mins, nothing. I the n thought I had misjudged the time difference (I'm in UK) but no. I came out of DM altogether and then went back in- no problem whoopee the last 5 mins of happy hour.!! I'll know better next time.

It needs something to trigger the change in Energy requirement. I generally visit a neighbor and then return to my manor at the beginning of the hour. This causes the server and client to sync up. Other things that will do this: change accounts (if you have multiple), play slots, play an HOS or restart the game.
