October 2016Edit

  • 4th of October 2016: The Harvest and Halloween Update was released for Windows devices in the Windows Store. Due to an apparent glitch, the first event (Harvest Festival) in this update ended prematurely and without notice 4 days later. Most windows players did not have the opportunity to attain the Magic Cube. The 2nd Event, The Celebration of the Spirits (Halloween Event) began automatically at this time. G5 did not offer any resolution for the problem.

September 2016Edit

  • 6th September 2016: The latest community poll asked players whether they thought the next update would be in September (a regular update) or not until October (the Halloween Event). The Poll was cut short by the almost instantaneous release of the the Harvest and Halloween Update, but before the update dropped, 21 people did get a chance to vote blind. Of those, only 19% predicted a September Update, while the vast majority (81%) predicted a Halloween Update was next. It turns out that 100% of voters were correct since the new update contains both the September and the October challenge!!!
