To finish on time, it is essential to be in a position to get to your game every 6 hour or so to restart the next dive promptly. If you have commitments that don't let you do that, you will lose time.

There is enough slack to lose a couple hours each night, but that only works if your dives are starting around your bed time. If, like mine, your dive is starting more like 2 am, then you are looking at losing more like 5 or 6 hours that night only to be faced with a 4 am start the next night and losing another 4 hours. Realistically, you need to set alarms to get thru the night without significant time losses.

I end up losing more hours then needed due to not be able to log on for long periods of time, so I probably wont finish this event, but again good luck to those who do, more power to ya.

I have been really busy working and sneaking in PB when able to do it. I noticed that some of the most popular players are not getting the full help that normally do... I mean many times I have tried to join some of the dives and they were fully loaded so how come this time around the few times I have been able to help it’s like easy and lost of slots open? Please expert explain it to my not so smart brain.....BTW, I NEED HELP TOO..... HAPPY DIVING EVERYONE!!!!!

Saying dive before you go to bed is fine if the seals are ‘free’ at that time. If they still have 3or 4 hours to finish a dive, are we supposed to stay awake for the next dive? Or, I know, set your alarm!

That's my situation. I've been staying up til the wee hours to restart the dive before going to bed, as I am a bit of a night owl anyway. I keep thinking with enough helpers, that time will creep back closer to midnight, but I haven't made too much progress in that regard.

I was out all day today, so lost a little time on my iPad game so now my start time will be even later instead of earlier. Lost several hours in my laptop game so I have to be careful not to waste much more.

It is because everyone is diving at once and our helper seal can only be one place at a time. If we look around for dives with only an hour or two left, we can join 2 or 3 or more dives during any 6 hour stretch, but that's about it. I like to join dives where I don't see any or many other helpers, anyway, plus if course players who are running short on time.

I am up late till bout 11 pm or midnight every night, I start My dive then go to bed, but over the weekend I am lucky if I was able to log on once or twice to restart My next Dive, so again I am not able to log in a lot, so that is probably why I wont be able to finish mine, which makes Me a lil sad, cause I really wanted that Winter Knome and Fish, :( , but oh well what can ya do when real Life stuff happens.

That’s right real life it’s way more important than finishing tradefest... don’t get me wrong, I love to play PB but I’m not sad or upset and I know I wil not finish it which is ok by me, just having lots of fun. Happy diving!

Why not just try helping others.. then they may help you. Why so anti?? You won’t lose anything, really. It’s all going to be back in other later dives.. we can’t sell it. Maybe moan about that? That would help , moan about that...!
That wasn’t directed at you Lcoelho!!!
