    Tomorrow is July 31....

    Kicking The Habit: Update 10/23/20 - Got my 200 gold for hitting 25M points on 8 prime games yesterday. No double gold, no care. Will check back to see if they screwed up Royale again. If so, won't play at all this weekend.

    And that’s why you have the “PHD”.

    Likely tomorrow. Near the end of last season or maybe the start of this one? When it was Friday 31st or 30th (last day of the month anyway) they gave us the main VIP gift. Then the newsletter the next week.

    There is no gauntlet this weekend I believe from what I am told, so that's another reason they will likely give it early on a 'nothing' prime weekend.

    There was definitely a month this year where they came early so I think it is possible.

    Well my sincere apologies. I've only been VIP for one month, and was told it was the first Friday of every month. Lots of folks don't realize July and Aug both have 31 days in the month, thus my comment. I'll be sure to be an ass next time.

    I still use the knuckle trick to remember how many days each month has.  But I didn’t even have to look on the calendar or my hand this time. Thanks Doc!  We’d be lost without your time telling techniques

    NP. For what it's worth, I hope Jackie is right and we get the gifts today.

    Remind me one day to teach everyone how to sail without a compass.

    Isn’t Glu already teaching us that?
    Just a Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷‍♂️

    Kinda.... more like how to navigate your way in this game using your prison wallet as currency.

    I mean.... it’s always been the first Friday of the month not the day of the month idk what’s so hard to understand the concept 🤷🏽‍♂️ Yet have been nice enough to hand them out early before doesn’t mean they are always going to do it. After all it is glu we are taking about here

    Anyone complaining about not getting VIP gifts today, is not thinking clearly.  I’m ecstatic we didn’t get them today, for 2 reasons:

    1.  This weekend’s boxes are terrible and I’d rather get free boxes from next weekend, which I can’t imagine will be any worse, though they could be equally as bad.  I guess this one is a crapshoot really, lol.

    2.  Next weekend is a Royale and I would MUCH prefer getting the VIP gifts for a Royale weekend, than a crappy Prime weekend!  For this reason, I was actually pleasantly surprised that Glu didn’t minimize the value of the VIP gifts, by giving them to us now.

    I agree with More2MostFirst both points. Boxes are crappy this week and Royale is  next week.

    Legends were released at this time last year next week. 🤞
  • txhoneybadgertxhoneybadger Registered Users, Member 85 Posts
    Your right they were but it’s highly doubtful thou since this years been a huge shit show and how late primes were released as well I highly doubt legends will be released same time as last year and will be delayed longer as well as atgs. What I do hope they do is finally add Cooperstown back like last year in the august Update thou

    Agree.. I don’t expect to see legends next week tho I hope so. I figure we are about a month behind last years pace considering primes were released at 380 instead of 370. So likely we are a month from legends 😕

    Not to mention there is no LxP available at this time...

    UGH. I know what that means.

    More overly lengthy grievances from the Doc?

    Some behind the scenes stuff:

    It's always on the First Friday of the Month.

    Yes, there was that one time we gave it out on the 31st.  The reason that happened was because the person that helps the VIP Newsletter writer with the gifts was on PTO the week they were supposed to go out.  The idea of having the newsletter go out early was also discussed, but of course the person that does the newsletter was out that week. 

    It was also kind of a last-minute decision and that newsletter takes at least week to prep.

    I hope that sheds some light on your discussion. :)
