Gold Rush Event #2: Sprint Vector (The Stress Test)

Zenbane

While several of us missed the first event, we have another chance this weekend with another game that I personally enjoy, Sprint Vector.

Day/Tme:
April 7 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm PT

I found Sprint Vector to have a very unique feature where it makes me "physically feel" the ground moving during certain Jump Routines. It's the oddest thing:

I plan to participate this weekend. Anyone can try Sprint Vector for free, even if you don't plan to participate:

If you are playing it for the first time and experience that strange "ground moving" thing, let me know! And feel free to use this thread to report the results of the Gold Rush event.






EDIT #1:
Today the event played out more like a stress test for the Sprint Vector server infrastructure. They stated on Twitter that they will attempt to have a "makeup" event for those of us who spent an hour looking at a loading screen. Luckily I only spent about 20 minutes looking at the screen before my little buddy took over.

Hopefully a makeup event can happen, stat.


EDIT #2:
Everyone who was queued up should be included in this weeks Gold Rush even if you didn't get to play. Also, the time has been extended, as I just went in 3.5 hours later and still got the achievement.

What time does it start in the UK? I missed the last one because I lost track of the start and finish times.

Is it about 1am for you right now in the UK?

If so, you are 8 hours ahead, so the event should start for you at 9pm Saturday April 7 UK Time.

Starts 6am in Sydney, Aus 😞

Really wish they wouldn't be so US centric with their timing and have an off-set entry window for different timezones.

We've been trying to connect to a multi-player game but since the event started, no luck.

Same here. I'm actually in the game right now watching the "looking for server" screen. Someone needs to upgrade their AWS Cloud Server subscription, stat lol

Same here.  Waiting for 15 minutes now.  No luck getting in to a multiplayer match.
