Default Unanswered: Please explain the 12 am glitch

I think I get it ?! There is a three minute glitch to snag a rare item at midnight, right?

But I still have some questions:

- If you are on level 7 of Art's preferred customer shopping, will he give you any prior notice?

- what do people mean when they say you have to open two windows? Can't I just snag it, log off, and log right back onto another account and snag it there too?

- about how often does this happen?

- if it happens on the american accounts, is it definitely happening on the Asian and European accts too? Basically, if I log onto my Amer acct and there is no "glitch" rare offered, do I then need to log onto my Asian acct to see if one is being offered there?

- are the "glitch" rares things that Arte is stingy about offering often. In other words, are the "glitch rares" the rarest of the rares because they are not offered very often? Or are they just as random as any other rare?

- Is the "glitch" rare just an early bird rare? Is that same "glitch" rare going to be offered later that same day?

- do the Amer, European, and Asian accounts all experience the "glitch" at the same time?

- has Arte ever offered the Egyptian flooring or wallpaper during the "glitch" rare. Are the Egyptian walls/floors the rarest of them all? I've never seen them offered, so I'm thinking it's because I never snagged a "glitch" rare.

Whew! I think that covers my questions. I know it will be a major undertaking to answer them all but I hope this thread will answer these questions for many WI members. I am eternally grateful for your answers!!!

The 12am glitch (as far as I am aware) does not affect Rares in the American accounts (since none are offered that late/early). It does affect the Asian accounts quite a bit since they are 14 hours ahead of EST.
Yes, he will tell you when the Rare will be; however if it is after the 12 am glitch (2pm Asian KT), then you will need to check back after 12 am (2pm Asian KT) to find out the real time. For example, if he tells you the Rare will be at 4pm, then check back at 2:03 KT (12:03am EST) and ask him again-chances are he will tell you a different time. It gets interesting when he tells you the Rare will be at 2pm Asian KT (12:00 am EST), then you will only have 3 minutes until the glitch when it gets reset. Make sure you are in the shop and ready to buy before the glitch!

- what do people mean when they say you have to open two windows? Can't I just snag it, log off, and log right back onto another account and snag it there too?

If it is the Rare at 2pm Asian KT (12:00 am EST), then it is very hard to do all that in the time frame before the glitch happens. You have to log in and then wait through Arte’s whole speech again. It is much easier just to have multiple windows open.

- about how often does this happen?

Every couple of weeks maybe? Not all that often, but I’ve seen it several times in the last couple of months.

- if it happens on the american accounts, is it definitely happening on the Asian and European accts too? Basically, if I log onto my Amer acct and there is no "glitch" rare offered, do I then need to log onto my Asian acct to see if one is being offered there?

Again, as far as I know there isn’t an American glitch rare since none are ever offered that late/early. Not sure on the European (don’t have one). It definitely affects the Asian quite a bit. The Rares are at different times on the American, European, and Asian accounts.

- are the "glitch" rares things that Arte is stingy about offering often. In other words, are the "glitch rares" the rarest of the rares because they are not offered very often? Or are they just as random as any other rare?
They are just as random as any other rare.


- Is the "glitch" rare just an early bird rare? Is that same "glitch" rare going to be offered later that same day?

No.

- do the Amer, European, and Asian accounts all experience the "glitch" at the same time?

The glitch happens at 12:03 EST and affects all accounts. I believe there are a couple of other glitch times as well that don’t affect things much (7:03 amEST is another one)

- has Arte ever offered the Egyptian flooring or wallpaper during the "glitch" rare. Are the Egyptian walls/floors the rarest of them all? I've never seen them offered, so I'm thinking it's because I never snagged a "glitch" rare.

Not sure if I would call them the rarest of them all, but they don’t show up much!

Hope I didn’t confuse you, PM me if you need clarification

Thanks WesleyKinz. Actually, I was reading that thread this morning and it's what prompted me to write this thread. I have an asian account and I get it, for the most part, but was still unclear about the glitch thing. Thanks for your help!!!

WOW! You didn't confuse me at all! And how about that 7:03 rare - that's enlightening. I can't tell you how many times I've been on at both those times and never knew to check it out. I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions so thoroghly. If I could give you five reps I would. But one's a coming for sure. Thanks again!!!!

Default Re: Please explain the 12 am glitch

Funsilly, are you still confused, or does that all make sense now?

I just have trouble with what time it is for me versus what time it is in the Asian account.

Also since there's no advance as to what the rare is, you just have to wait- or get up to check it. It usually happens during a time when we should be sleeping, so that could explain why I've been cranky a lot lately

I just opened my first Asian account on Saturday with a new Lil' Kinz pet.
