    Can we get the Heroes vs Villains events for lightsaber-only and no-sabers-only again? Maybe one of either for one week a month and the other then for one week of the next month?

    Come on, Boots on Tuesdays (no heroes, no reinforcements, just fun) would be nice with HU on Thursdays. Keeps weekends free for normal play.

    Weekends can have Triple XP and normal play!

    Wish we could have some more XP events, but it’s nice that only Fridays will be ruined by events.

    The Midweek Double XP is nice, but does this mean there will be no weekend events anymore? No HU? No BotG? No Triple XP??!!

    Honestly, I would expand the Double XP to include Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. I would also have Triple XP on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Correct, instead of weekend events we'll now have them on weekdays, as per this schedule.

    In response to not enjoying specific events - previously events lasted up to 3 days (Friday - Sunday). Since the new schedule only has events for up to 1 day, it's easier to skip if you don't enjoy them.

    I'd like to add that there are no events on Tuesday and Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
  • So there will never be another triple xp?

    This is the current schedule for now. While we might update it in the future, we have nothing additional planned at this time.

    Is this a request you could forward to your bosses?
  • How about 3X XP the first Saturday/Sunday of every month?

    The best compromise I could have hoped for. Thank you for keeping weekends as default play, for folks who aren't free to play anything except at those times. Much appreciated!

    Is this meant for this post? The problem with Extraction being merged with Strike is that Extraction maps rarely come up in the rotation (unless fixed in last couple of weeks). It has nothing to do with events (so it is off topic).

    My guess is that Extraction maps are last in the rotation. When they do come up, everyone leaves as the people that have been playing are Strike fans and not Extraction fans who give up long before an Extraction map comes up. Merging it with Strike effectively killed the ability to play those maps. My guess is that a Strike map comes up at least 40 times more often than an Extraction map.

    Also it makes the Extraction-oriented Timed Challenges virtually impossible to complete, even though the point of mode-specific Timed Challenges is to get people to try other modes outside their routine now and then.
  • @EA_Tom please can there be any chance for HvV offline mode, like you have done with CO-OP in the last update as be great to continue playing HvV once everything comes to a conclusion (servers closed)

    So to be clear, is this saying what I think it’s saying, Heroes Unleashed is only available twice a year, on Jan 1st and May 4th?

    Oh! HU Jan 1st and May 4th Only.

    Nice way to keep the server cost down.

    Thanks for nothing ********!

    I think so.
  • Should turn double XP on permanently and make Wednesdays triple XP.

    Yes, please.

    This is a very safe schedule and unhappy customers have only themselves to blame.

    Perhaps, if we had all come together as one community during each event and not moaned about one another's preferences, HU, UP and BotG would all be included. 🤷🏼‍♂️

    The hatred over one weekend event that happened twice was insane

    Maybe. Unlimited power (which is just a suped up version of HU) is guaranteed to be twice a year....but as Darth Vader once said, "Pray I don't alter it any further" always is directed to players who like trooper play.

    Yeahhhhh he totally didnt address me at all there, lol.

    It may be slightly off topic but the fact remains that Extraction remains lost and unplayable in the Strike mode and thus any events or daily challenges for Extraction are unattainable!

    Extraction needs to be unmerged. @EA_Tom please can you pass this along?

    Hey @EA_Tom , could we have Triple XP instead of Double XP on Wednesdays (since there will no longer be Triple XP Weekends)?

    No.

    Well.

    You're wrong.

    I've been speaking and explaining it for 4 years.

    So, I'm sorry to disappoint you. But your xp request is not happening. The man that works for EA literally told you the schedule.

    Despite the short tone, tankertoad is right. Unfortunately, this seems like a set schedule that doesn't seem likely to change.

    Thanks @EA_Tom for the update and keeping us posted! I will enjoy these for sure.

    You only have to wait until 2021 for that unlimited event you love dude. The funny thing is they call out extraction separately in the announcement yet leave it buried with a dead mode.
