No delay in dive starts possible anymore?

Postby Dbauer » Sun Dec 10, 2017 9:14 am

Hello trademasters,

Last night my dive popped up.
I did not open sealhouse, but decided to start in the morning and when I opened my dive after 11 hours, I discovered I have only 5 hours left.

Does that mean now, that we cannot delay the start of our dives anymore?

What about people living in different time zones?
Will they need to leave their families and jobs to either do dives at night time or move to another time zone?
Or never again finish a weekly dive?

Has anyone else observed this happening or have I missed reading something about that?

No you haven’t missed a thing!
Same thing happened to me, I got the call to dive late last night, and thought I’m best leaving this till the morning and not pulling an all nighter to complete all the dives, this morning I went to my island the seal head and :!: symbols were there and with in seconds they disappeared.
I have put in a ticket but no reply yet, will keep you updated.

Thanks, Elafaki and Mlb - at least I can continue to hope my sanity is still intact (apart from playing far too much for my age and other obligations :lol: )

I submitted a ticket and will keep you posted as well.

The same with me. However, I had a second game that I couldn''t play for weeks and when I started it last night a dive started immediately. That means, you can delay the dive if you don't play at all. SO, unless you are in the middle of an event , don't play PB on the day you shuld get the dive in hours that you cannot start a dive, like work or scool brakes, some hours before sleeping , etc.

You are right, Shir,

but that would literally mean for me to turn my back on PB and walk away to some game not trying to take so total control of my life.

For me, a game is something to fill up time in-between, relax after a workday or bridge some time between appointments.

As for the day I should get a dive - I don't usually know that exactly. And PB will definitely NOT get a spot in my outlook calendar :roll:

Thanks for letting us know. When PB was a brand new game there was no delay on dive starts and they used to be every 8 days for me. I'd just make sure not to log in at night when I knew I wouldn't have enough time to complete all the dives. I'm not sure when it changed but I've been enjoying that nice change. I vote to delay dive starts again. :-)

I don't like starting dives after 4 pm, so that means I need to close the app and not play after 4 pm when it's about time for the seal to appear.

I'm wondering if we can effectively control when the seal shows up. I think the seal is supposed to show up 6 days and 20 hours from when you collect the final chest, or the timer ran out if you didn't finish. so, if I collect my chest now (about 12:30), the seal will be back next Sunday at about 8:30 am and the timer will start as soon as I open my game that day.

Alternately, It means, whenever he finishes, never collect the chest after 8 pm if don't want him showing up next time after 4 pm.

Would those work?

Why do they do this to us? It worked OK the way it was.
