Introducing BORGIA'S PALACE Happy Hours!
But what's that, I hear you say?
It's very simple - the wheel will go dynamic for a certain period of time. This might include themed HAPPY HOURS with, for example, targeted characters available on the wheel for X hours, or maybe even Mythic cards... There'll be Clintz or CRypto boosts, a variable entry price... In short, the wheel is no longer "fixed"! And that's gonna make it whole lot more unpredictable and fun!
We're introducing these Happy Hour sessions as of today alongside the unmissable Advent Calendar: https://www.urban-rivals.com/special/advent/
Most days, as well as the calendar's little gifts, there'll be a bunch of Happy Hours available on the wheel, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled! (And Kate will keep you posted on SPOT and Instagram.)
Good luck and enjoy!

Saga's last message on his SPOT is:
GOOD JOB EVERYONE !!!!
So before we were told if we couldn't figure out HH hours from the SPOT, that at least anything not on there would be on Insta for sure. Now, hours can't be found on either and staff probably doesn't even care about mentioning it and there might be some 3rd source of info that most of the playerbase is unaware about.
Staff has been doing great with BMs and this past event which I'm very happy about. But, their communication specifically on wheel events remains to be a sore spot for me since I returned to the game. I find myself praising staff for various things, but all my criticism comes back to the same thing it seems. BM has an icon, how hard is it to do the same for Happy Hours (or "wheel events" since technically HH is discontinued).
@Hippo2 Ah, I see you must be on mobile, unfortunately I only ever use PC since the app would take up a decent amount of room on my phone and I have very little free space. So if I understand correctly, the notification pops up as soon as the Happy Hours starts and lets you know the start to end? If possible, would you mind posting a screenshot of the message just so I can get an idea of how it looks? If there are mobile notifications, it would be nice for PC users to receive a message in their inbox similar to when you complete missions or place in a tourney, maybe a mod could bring up this idea to the staff. It's very telling when you ask if anyone knows the ending time for an event and no one can come up with an answer
@Hippo2 Great, thanks so much for that screenshot bud That's a step in the right direction, but I still think notifications should have start and end times as well as similar support for PC. Happy Hours varying in quality I can deal with and honestly don't think is that big of a deal since not every HH can be amazing (like double mythic on ticket wheel), but basic communication for events that are supposed to be exciting and feel special (that's how HH feels to me at least) is a baseline I feel should be expected and where UR can often fall flat compared to many other games. I love HH and anyone who follows me on the forums knows I am a huge advocate for taking advantage of such deals alongside other deals for crypto and credits. Announcements and easily scene icons are made for pretty much every other promotion/event, I don't see a good reason why HH ends up being so much less visible than everything else especially when their event periods are the shortest in the whole game, meaning even more emphasis should be put on them to ensure players don't miss it. Hopefully others can sympathize with this sentiment.
