For Sprint Vector Players Unable to Match During Gold Rush Hour

cyberealitycybereality Posts: 26,156 Oculus Staff
Thanks for showing up today to play Sprint Vector. In fact, so many of you showed up that we know that many of you waited and were unable to match during the Gold Rush hour. Don’t worry, we will make sure that everyone who played a match or was waiting to play and never matched will be entered into the drawing for prizes. We’re identifying winners and will start notifying those who won next week.

    Fantastic move Oculus. No rematch, which could have made people mad. Very excellent move.

    I've was in the middle of a Match when the gold rush started then game disconnected. But I did enjoy the game, Would recommend it to anyone who plays Echo Arena.

    I got my attempts timestamped from the game maker, I am sure though that Oculus has a record of those who logged into that particular game and who did not otherwise what would keep gamers honest?

    I cant even download Sprint Vector. Just keeps saying INSTALLATION FAILED. i scanned, i cleared temp files, i rebooted i ran the repair install and nothing works. I have enough space on my drive for the install. and I cannot find any help on this issue.

    If you have MalwareBytes (or similar) you need to temporarily disable it to uninstall games.

    I was actually wondering what was going on since I gave up after 30 minutes in queue. 15 for us and 15 for eu server. I simply couldnt belive that no one is trying to play it especially when this game is really fun.

    Thank you for the update!

    I was disappointed when I couldn't get into a game when matchmaking. This was definitely a great act of good will, as always by you guys!

    I think the winner of the grand prize should be required to post an unboxing video in their speedo.

    Very cool of you guys!  I waited for 30min, got tired of waiting and played a 1 person game.

    Can we get a confirmation email or something to check that we have infact been entered. If not a website with usernames.

    Much appreciated, thanks.

    I'm really happy this is how you guys handled the situation.  Is there any way you could at least let us know when the winners have been picked and alerted?  I check my inbox every so often because in the T&C it states that today is the drawing date.  It would be super cool if you could just post "The winners have been picked and alerted!! If you didn't receive an email, try again this weekend with <insert game here(we all know its Echo Arena)>!!!"

    So whats the situation? Do we get achievements? Notifications?  I'm not fussed on winning (though it would be amazing!) But would be nice to know if i was taken into account

    No way to tell if you were taken into account this time, unless you played before the hour.

    I would like to hear from a user who won and didn't earn the participation achievement.........Until then its really hard to say if we were all included. 

    I did however earn the Echo Arena achievement:)

    Can I suggest a change to the rules for future events?  Having everyone try to log in at once seems to create problems; and it rules out those of us on the other side of the world, unless we wake at 04:00 and go without a morning coffee!

    So how about one hour events running every 6 hourhs (or 4 if you're keen), that way potential players could aim to login when it suits in their time zone and hopefully the server load would be more managable.

    Thanks
    And no - I don't expect you to change it for any remaining weeks of this contest; but as an organisation with world wide sales hopefully you'll consider it going forward.
