so.. once again.. some people will only have the right to play when others are already far ahead, depending on roll outs, networks, etc..

luckily it's not a competitive event, looks a stand alone, from what it seems, but we all like to dip in the action instead of watching the others play

let's hope it will be fun at least (i guess so, and it looks similar to the sticks on from a past halloween or xmas event, with the you_bump_you_drop_cargo mechanics, which i even pointed out a while ago when mentioning possible mechanics for future events :thumbsup: )

when i log into play store in the browser it shows as having updated today, 15th.
i thought recent changes in play store were supposed to get the update regardless of anything else when you manually check for updates - that's w working well then

what was the original date?

guess a couple of days extension...?

it's probably still impossible to complete without a ton of gems, no?

Well, as of now, there's 22 days (+today) left. There are 3 tracks with 100 hearts max from each. There is a 6 hour wait timer.
So, if you ace all of the tracks and play every 6 hours for the next 22 days, you can net total of 26400 hearts. That's enough to unlock 4/6 of the tracks and all of the gear. To get the last paintjob you need 41500 hearts.

Realistically though you're gonna miss some timers and you're not gonna get 100 hearst on every track. I reckon 13000 hearts is somewhat reasonable without any gems.

JayNast, I believe it's called "Play 2 Win". All you have to do is spend $18 USD on "Ted's Package" but that probably won't be enough. Even though the package comes with the outfit and 300 gems, you will probably need to buy another 300-500 gems if you want to get all tracks.

Unlike most other events which reward skill by being in the fasted XX%, you just need to spend a lot of money to get the privilege of driving slowly and carefully on tracks you already have.

I personally do not mind spending a few dollars each month for constant support of the game but when the cost of 7 tracks is around $25 USD(The cost of a large DLC for any other game), I start to question how the game is run. (This is why I haven't spent a dime on the game in months... simply not worth it)

I got it now too. Normally it takes days for my updates to appear after they are announced on here. Think the updates should be done before the event starts. Like dakar/aux x updates. Especially for a long grindy event like this where every day helps!

what are the outfits and paintjobs?

only one i see is the final prize, bronco pink

guess i already have the rest, but would like to know


edit: correcting my first post, with that top 5% reward, it's actually a competitive event, so it makes even less sense to have people starting to play almost 24 sooner than others! :mad:

Just got love update.how is it possible for riders to get stupidly huge scores already. It makes it almost impossible for genuine players to reach the top 5 percent. Please stop the cheats, its not difficult to identify them

Resource hackers (they hack their gem count). IOS had a guy with 20K love in the first 10 hours of the update. :)

To be fair though.... 20K love is about 100 passes, and each pass can be bought immediately for a cost of 15 gems..... thats 1500 gems. I have 2K gems and never hacked (just have been building up my stash for years). And... you can buy 1500 gems for about $30. This person might be a hacker... or have lots of free money....or just be someone like me who has decided to blow is stash and leave this god-forsaken grind behind forever. :)

(pay-to-win games are never gonna seem fair to those of us who refuse to throw money at the game)

In a first minutes of update Android had a guy with 36k. Also about 10 guests accounts and account named something like "ubitest" :D
I think you understand who they are :)

Hi all, I've got the new Love express update but can't play for some reason. When the tracks refresh they are tracks that I don't have on my world map yet, does this matter?? I'm clicking on each of the 3 tracks but it's not doing anything, is my game bugged?? Or is it just because I don't have these tracks so can't play them?? Please help, I'm getting close to deleting the game altogether, thanks in advance

I've played through a couple rounds until I got the "Speed-Dating" booster from the quest. Finished the next three tracks and waited the 3 hours for them to reset. Immediately before the tracks were available the timer started counting down from 3hrs again, so I figured maybe the booster didn't work right. After waiting the next 3 hours the timer restarted from 24hours, again without ever giving me a chance to play the new tracks. Anybody else having this issue?

the fix is to NOT use the notification to open the game, and NOT use the event thing on the main screen to open the event. Go into the world map as normal, then click the tab above to pull it down and it should work fine.

Had the exact same problem and having the event opened from the map screen worked for me. hope it ll work for you as well

@captainweelie Can one of the mods please comment on the refresh bug? The workaround isn’t working for me either. I’m already buying the 3 hour booster everyday but also having to refresh manually more often than not because the time just resets to 3 hours without giving me the tracks!! Wasting gems like there’s no tomorrow

Possibly due to that they've released "covertly" a cheapish (€2.29) bundle of parts with decent 300 gems included to get some moneys out of you :p
A good deal in a sense of current standalone gem prices.
Not that I'm proud of buying them myself but I simply don't have the time to run this event more than twice a day on weekdays.. Even without the bugs.

ryansimmons3990

Thanks for letting me know, I bought them😩 it is a “good” deal, relatively speaking.
Feel a bit disgusted with myself to be honest, look what you did ubi/rl!

Still no comment on the refresh bug? People are paying hard earned money for gems attempting to complete your event but this bug is basically stealing from them. Surely you want to address this?

I love this game and have been playing for a couple of years now. I am pretty good at it hitting rank 60 legend WITHOUT GRINDING and being in the top 100 in the leaderboards in almost every track. The tracks that I am top 300 or less is because 1. I don't have all the bikes, 2. I don't have all the upgrades for the bikes that I already have. It's unbelievable for the amount of time that I have played the game do not have all the upgrades, at least, for the bikes. I am in the top 2000 in the global because I don't have all the tracks and I can't buy them... I will not spend more money just to try to complete the event. I AM SICK OF IT. So make the tracks available to purchase or make the event possible to win.

I have the same problem. The event completely disappeared after downloading the latest update.

I was in the top 1% and spend about 400 gems so far.

Hi riders! Here's an update for those of you who missed out on completing the Love Express event, when it ended a few days earlier than it should have. We're compensating you with rewards for the trouble of missing out on the event. You'll receive a save prompt tomorrow. To save your rewards, please do choose the "Server Save” option.

Please note that you would not get the rewards again if you fail to choose the “server save” option.

Cheers!

That's good. Can I also get my "skip timer issue" refund sent again please? I never received the pop-up, nor refund, whatever that may be.

Yet again I am disappointed!

Captain Wheelie - I haven't received this pop-up either, so no PJ, track pieces, gems, NOTHING! I have also now sent you a further 3 messages over the last 2 weeks since you last contacted me. I would appreciate a reply and the initial reimbursement resent.

To confirm I am owed: 300 gems minimum for the skip timer issue and whatever this reward is for the event ending early. Please fix a.s.a.p. Clearly something is wrong with my account if the pop-ups you send do not get through.

You should contact support because there's none here most of the times. There's no moderation too and the last event of Midnight Circuit just posted on social networks, not here, so this forum is just players talking to others or to the wall!
