When would you say is midnight on Sunday?

I would have said Sunday midnight would be 12am (00.00hrs), which would be between Sunday 11.59pm (23.59hrs) and Monday 12.01am (00.01hrs)

2 minutes of a Double XP event?

You sure you don't work for BP?

It's actually quite obvious he doesn't.

The dead giveaway? He knows how to tell time...

? The question was when is midnight Sunday. I think you were misunderstood, 23.59hrs Sunday and 00.01hrs Monday was to clarify which midnight is for Sunday. So basically, for any day is midnight the one before midday or after.

I would have said, the event starts at 00.00hrs Sunday and end on Monday 23.59hr. Hence midnight is at the end of the day

It looks like GRB thinks midnight Sunday starts after 23.59hrs SATURDAY and at the beginning of Sunday.

But it was all irrelevant as the event started 2pm (14.00hrs) server time. Just another balls up by BP.

GRB is a Mod and has nothing to do with when events are activated. This one is on the Devs.


"Dear Pilots,

They are pretty clear in the announcement, when the event was supposed to be. They never said SUNDAY midnight.... They said starting midnight to run the whole of Sunday.

But the OP specified an event that starts on Sunday at 23.59.... In full knowledge of when the event was supposed to be.... Actually giving us a whole minute of an event.

The OP has said in first line "When would you say is midnight on Sunday?".

The OP has clarified when is MIDNITE (end of sunday) "I would have said Sunday midnight would be 12am (00.00hrs), which would be between Sunday 11.59pm (23.59hrs) and Monday 12.01am (00.01hrs)"

At no time, did the OP say the event is between 11.59pm and 12.01am and lasting 2mins. Even the title of the thread does not say anything about the event - "Catching a flight or hot date? Telling the time? when is midnight on Sunday?"

You still not answered when is SUNDAY midnight!!

You misunderstand.... Nowhere did BP say anything about midnight on Sunday.... They said starting midnight (no mention of which one), then specify the duration... ie the whole of Sunday.

I'm picking at the OP, because this has been mentioned enough already. Yes, its poor form from BP (again). But not worthy of its own thread.

If you are going to be a smart Alec, it helps to cover the first part of that first.

You love your own voice 2k+ posts!!

Muppet was right, you missed the point.

I never asked anything about the event, I only asked when was midnight.

and you never replied to when midnight was.

Go away you forum wannabe and be annoying somewhere else.

Well if it says starting midnight to run the whole of Sunday, when do you think it is? (thats rhetorical... Don't answer)

Its fairly obvious to me which midnight they are referring to.

The real reason you made this thread was simply to have a moan that the event didn't start on time... Poor you... Had to wait a few hours.

3 posts.... 4th Time's the charm eh?
