Why is this only on certain worlds?

The JMods have to be in-game to manually kick off the start of the happy hour events each time. There'll be a whole lot of players on each of the worlds during the happy hour times of course, but offering the events on six worlds is pretty good, I think.

I get that they are setting them of manually but why cant they have it automatically?
Plus while i do think the 100 tokens thing is a shame there isn't much that they can do without devaluing the runecoins people have already spent. Ah well no point complaining Love runescape to much to quit over one little thing, so might aswell just try to enjoy the event as much as possible and get as much easy xp as i can :)

My assumption is that it just may not be technically feasible to create an auto-happy-hour system for a temporary event. I suppose we never know, though - maybe it'll be automated at some point. :)

As for the tokens, they announced some changes today including increased ticket rates in order to make all rewards obtainable through the daily tokens.

Not to be a pessimist but I'm hoping weekends won't be chaotic with only one Happy Hour a day.

Oh I bet it'll be busy for sure! :P

Can you put the times even in brackets the same as the clock in game - like the hundred hours - like at the moment it's 3.35pm (15.35) <- I presume that is the English time??

Game Time is UTC, which is the time shown on the in-game clock and which never changes with daylight savings. There's currently a 1-hour difference between UTC and the time in England due to daylight savings, but in-game events always follow the in-game UTC clock.

Quoted below is Mod Shauny's post from page 1, with the times converted to 00:00 format:

Mod Shauny said:
Monday - Friday - English Worlds 81 (F2P) 82 & 83, 84, 85 & 88
- 01:00 - 02:00 Game Time
- 09:00 - 10:00 Game Time
- 14:00 - 15:00 Game Time
- 21:00 - 22:00 Game Time

Note: Next Monday 1st May is a Bank Holiday so the Happy Hour for that day will take place on the English World only at 19:00 - 20:00 game time

-----------------

Saturday - Sunday - English Worlds 81 (F2P) 82 & 83, 84, 85 & 88
- 19:00 - 20:00 Game Time

-----------------

Monday - Friday - Portuguese Worlds (47 & 94)
- 16:30 - 17:30 Game Time

-----------------

Monday - Friday - French Worlds (118 & 55)
- 16:30 - 17:30 Game Time

-----------------

Monday - Friday - German Worlds (102 & 122)
- 16:30 - 17:30 Game Time

Another person in game just told me that if you rest your cursor over the <i> on the jagex clock it gives you the details of the next jmod event including these.

The in-game clock tooltip shows the next-upcoming event, yeah. :)

All upcoming events can be found on the event calendar here also, if it's a bit easier to see everything at a glance that way.

Thought I would pass along the info here that Happy Hour events will be automated from update time on Monday the 8th onward. :)

What are you Mod Shauny as well :O

Haha no but I saw that he mentioned it in reply to someone, so I posted here since I wasn't sure if the main post would be updated for it. :P

Looks it already has been though, and looks like it's already automated instead of being automated starting on Monday.

Now that the happy hours are automatically started since the J-Mods assigned to hosting the events had trouble being punctual, does this mean the J-Mods that were supposed to host the happy hours will no longer have to attend the events, making it impossible to get event cards?

I think the automation of the start times was probably more so for consistency when IRL setbacks come up. I haven't been to one of the happy hour events since yesterday, but I imagine it's still possible that JMods could come along to give out event cards.
