- Double XP event coming soon
- The rest of the patch notes (item skills are VERY important and people want to know before buying)
- Event start/end times
- Changes to event times
Should really be public information. Patch notes shouldn't need to be posted by speadie. I shouldn't need to pester citymates to find out what time an event ends, only to be told later in chat that it got extended without any official announcement and need to hunt down event times again. It's frustrating not having access, or needing to rely on citymates or public chat to pass along things that should be public. We should be able to check facebook or the forums or some other visible, official platform to confirm these things.
For the GM account in game I think the biggest complaints come from chatting through that account... but it would be nice to see it for announcements, ie one line statements with big news like "hey guys, double xp has been extended until 11am PST!", or "Finished patch notes are up on the forums".. things that make sense to players who see it on their screens, rather than replies to players in other world chats.
I know it's not intentional but it really does feel like favoritism right now

I did say I was going to upset a few people with this thread lol. In game announcements on the news screen would be awesome. One line messages like Kim suggested work well. No one should complain at being given information. Chatting away is where people get annoyed.
Personally its good to talk to a CM regularly.
In the interest of fairness its not fair for vital information to be released in unofficial places.
Sometimes something might get said that won't really be noted again by myself until I see a chance to do so. The forums are not some easy place to just start chatting as then everything gets buried, folks consider it just a place to spam and so forth.
As for exact time instead of the day, that's not posted any where. And again, in game folks had the heads up about XP event, then folks on Facebook and Discord being last in that regard.
Leaks are supposed to make the rumor mill go into over drive outside of the ''Official" channels, and should also be taken worth a grain of salt.
No one is getting some clear advantage for things being said and I doubt any of it so far should be deemed 'Vital'.
