    Do Americans tell time in in minutes hours seconds ?

    Not sure if anyone has brought this up yet, but perhaps ZoS could send out an email telling players about this event? That way anyone who isn't active in ESO atm will get a head's up about the event!

    they should be running ads all over the media - all over the world...sending out millions of pieces of promotional mail...every zos employee should be calling every single contact number they have...

    I want that villa :)

    Came back just to do this, and Summerset was lousy with people galloping to all the POIs. :D

    This is a cool idea; earning nice things in game should be a thing. Having to rely on other people, OTOH, is my least favorite aspect of any MMO.

    Good luck, peeps. I hope you get your shiny stuff.

    (Other guildies are planning to drop by to get the achieve this weekend!)

    Yep a worry when you think that the last 2 days where probably the most busy with people getting the event done

    This morning's update has me concerned too. I have wanted it ever since I saw it in the PTS, have already completed the achievement, and have purchased the crowns for it. If it becomes unobtainable because of the inaction of others, that would be very..very...very bad.

    ZOS, will the Grand Psijic Villa be for sale in the Crown Store if the 100% goal isn't reached?

    You guys realize that is one days update not two. This mornings was the first update and there will not be another one till 11:00 AM EST tomorrow. It only updates once a day.

    This was two days worth of achievements from the time this was announced. There was no update yesterday, but today's bump accounted for the people who found out about this on Tuesday and Wednesday and checked it off.

    So, not only was this 2 days worth of achievements, it's also likely a large portion of the people with Summerset who log on daily-ish who hadn't completed the achievement (considering it doesn't take long at all to do). That's why we're concerned.

    Except people who work and go to school and only play on the weekends.
    There are 8 more days to go, we will make it as word spreads.
    So many people on all servers I went to today didn't know about it or what they had to do.

    made it over across the pond to work on the pathfinder achievement...

    yep, slow mount, no gear, no coin, and mostly - NO CHAMPION POINTS!!!

    it was actually kind of fun...saw lots and lots of low level toons running around...saw some familiar psn's in zone chat looking for a taxi to artaeum...

    still need a few more points of interest...got a little distracted - right after hitting level 10 I headed into alternate universe vivec...

    even got to square off against the EU vivec emp and a bunch of other bad guys trying to steal our scroll from the ni-mohk temple...

    I did about as well as you would expect a level 10, no cp character to do...I melted :p

    Consider if people swap servers, that number goes up to almost 70% (less than double, because some have likely already done this).

    I also suspect they'd show a continuous advance on the webpage, regardless of where the actual totals stand. Builds more anticipation that way.

    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    Of course it would. "Oh too bad, you weren't able to get it for free! But fear not those that really want it, it will be available in the crown store for a limited time of 0,00002645 seconds at the convenient price of 20k crowns."

    Yep, agree

    That 20% start figure includes everyone who had bought Summerset upto the start of the event and had done a pretty simple achievement.

    Even if only half the owners of Summerset had done it, and the rest rush out and complete it it still only gives you 40%.

    I seriously doubt people are going to buy Summerset now just for the chance of a free house, and certainly not in the numbers to get the remaining 60%

    I think this is unlikely as it would backfire spectacularly.

    People buying Summerset to try and get the achievement is unlikely, but many (I, for one) will create a character on the other megaserver (NA, in my case).
    I think we'll have to wait until Monday's, or at least Sunday's update to see if we can or cannot make it.

    I'm done with the success on PC megaservers. I bought Summerset upgrade for my XB1 even I said I wouldn't :*
    and I'll do the success on both servers there too because I want that house

    As many other greedy choices ZoS made in the past and keeps making. So I wouldn't be surprised.

    I firmly believe they already decided how this event ends, whether we win it or not. The progress can easily be fudged and entirely hiding the actual numbers makes it even easier to quietly manipulate it without arising suspicions.

    What we'll see is whether they think it makes more business sense to deliver the reward they used as bait to sell more Summerset (because this whole event is bait to sell Summerset, with the accompanying discount - and that's just fine, if we get the reward), or if they think their usual greedy ways are better.

    I agree 100% and I think they will go for the first option.

    TBH I'd have hoped that the event was based on achievement points for all the Summerset achievements. Anyone who has already explored the island is essentially twiddling their thumbs rather than engaging.

    You can still actively participate by helping others get the achievement by giving ports to Areteum or other wayshrines
    Also dont forget you can do it both on the NA and EU server and have it count 2x toward the goal

    Ive done it both on EU and NA on my 2 accounts with Summerset so Ive got a +4 added to the count

    It would be boring if we hit 100% in the first few days of the event. I'd wager that ZOS is planning to do a bigger social/media push later on in the event.

    (Not saying I think we'll definitely hit 100%--I don't really have a firm opinion on that one way or the other. Just speaking from the perspective of someone who's run similar events in the past.)
