can anyone please tell me where to find the dates for the boss hunt
When you go into the garden on either side, go to the message board, not just your new messages, but all of them. You should usually have anywhere from 7-10 I'd say. Just scroll to the end message, and there should be a list of mystery portal events. It just has the game type and dates they'll be up.

You can also use the calendar below. However, in my experience, the calendar is only correct in the beginning of the month when the events are initially set. They seem to forget to edit the online calendar when they change the in game message board. In a couple cases for me, the in game event calendar was changed and the online one wasn't. When the time came, it ended up being the in game one that was correct.

Also, it may be multiple months between Boss Hunt events, and the same goes for other events as well.

I'm just here to confirm that today's Mystery Portal is, in fact, NOT Boss Hunt. It's Soil Survivors. Just played a match of it.

So the website calendar was wrong, the in-game calendar was correct.

Ugh, have to wait and see what next month's events will be. Looks like that calendar won't be available until somewhere between April 30th and May 6th.

Gives me a little more time to rank up some characters though.

Seitzz - have you played the game a long time? Is this something that happens regularly as it sounds like it does?

Depends on your definition of a long time. I only started the game in February and finished most of what I could within the month. But in the space of that I had one incident and then this one. My guess is that this is more of a recent thing happening since the game has been out for more than 3 years. The DLC is approaching 3 years as well. All I can say is that this has happened with the last 2 scheduled Boss Hunts, this one included. I just want it to finally get here again so I can finish this game. But I guess for now 2/2 is a decent enough trend to suggest that the in game calendar is in fact the one that dictates.

I don't understand why only the cats vs dinos achievements are marked as "discontinued." Are the community challenge and boss hunt achievements not similarly unattainable?

Does anyone know if a history of mystery portal events exists? I'd like to see how often these events have occurred.

The Boss Hunt achievements should be marked as discontinued for now, definitely not obtainable as of this moment.
Who knows when they are getting back, the achievements are just flagged wrong.
It should be the same as in Overwatch, where they flag achievements to discontinued each time when the events are not up any more.

If you're looking for that info, I'd look at the achievement and go to the "Unlocked by X tracked gamers," right under the achievement. Go to the last page, and that should be an indication of when the event was last up, likewise going back page by page, you can see the range and gaps between events.

These events for the mystery portal are all just timed and only available during a specific set of days and therefore the associated achievements are only obtainable during these specific dates, dictated by their event calendars. Otherwise, if the event is not on, the associated achievements are not obtainable. Hope that makes sense, the discontinued flag is a bit confusing for these few achievements that come from the mystery portal events I think.

There's already a timed/date flag, so the discontinued flag in that context makes no sense to me either, unless the PvZ dev team specifically said there would be no more Cats vs Dinos.

The last time Cats V Dinos was run before this instance was September last year, over 6 months. Boss hunt (at least going by unlocks) has been somewhat regular, every couple of months. The community challenges are also quite regular and seem to be monthly. Those two are within our threshold for these types of events and related achievements and are correctly not flagged Discontinued. If Cats V Dinos becomes more regular or either of these events stops being regular they'd get their flags updated appropriately.

That's lame... hopefully they revise it again only for the better this time.

Ah fair enough, never heard of that threshold before.

I’m looking to get this done as well. I’ll keep checking when the calendar is updated. Annoyed that they changed out boss hunt for soil survivors. Don’t see why they can’t just change it and have it on a rolling cycle.

Next in-game calendar normally comes out during the last event, so we'll find out in a couple of days. I'm hoping, as it's basically all I have left to do!
