I had to sign in as my wife's account to see the calendar, so it seems broken per account.

When you guys say we need characters at level 10/ maxed out, does that mean just level 10 or promoted (prestiged) to level 10?

Promoted to max level. You will see the word max. IIRC it is after promoting a character 5 times. People always say max characters because you generally get the better perks/abilities for your character at the higher levels.

I think most of us are already expecting it not to be boss hunt since the in game calendar doesn't have it listed

It doesn't seem like it would be too hard for them to just add it to a regular rotation or even perm unlocked seeing as the new game is out now.

Agreed, but for some reason, they don't do it.

UPDATE as of 11-9-2019:
The website has been updated, not in a good way.....:
http://www.pvzgw2.com/events-calendar

The website calendar was originally showing:
EVENTS CALENDAR: Boss Hunt
SEPT 24, 2019 - SEPT 30, 2019


It's replaced by the following:
SEPT 24, 2019 - SEPT 30, 2019
Community Challenge


They also updated the calendar till OCT 3, 2019 - OCT 7, 2019.
OCT 1, 2019 - OCT 7, 2019 = Cats vs Dinos.

Result = NO BOSS HUNT, screw these devs.

So they've fixed the calendar to correlate with the real one? That's good news for me, as it stops me having to explain to everyone that the online one is wrong laugh

On the second note, another cats vs Dino's? Not complaining, that'll be good for some people, but we should have had a Boss hunt in-between cry

Was just coming over here to post the same thing. Knew it was too good to be true.

it is shameful, and since March we are waiting for a boss hunt, but nothing to do, this thing totally ruined my judgment towards this game

Lame, so Cats vs Dinos will have run twice without one Boss Hunt. roll

I wonder if they're not running Boss Hunt because (from my understanding) it's basically unwinnable when played with randoms, so they take the easy route and just run the same basic events instead to please the masses.

We should start making file complaints against them via the BBB (Better Business Bureau):
Publisher: EA
Developer: PopCap Games


Why file complaining?:
They are giving us false information regarding the calendar on their website for the last 9 (?) months?
They initially posted on their website that a Boss Hunt event would happen, and the event never happened or they just changed the event description!
This happened at least twice this year, giving the community false hopes. Just check at the moment, there is over 50 (!) planned gaming sessions for the Boss Hunt event, all these sessions are useless now...)

Link: https://www.bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get...

Why via BBB?:
We did the exact same thing as TA community to get this achievement fixed: (This achievement was broken for nearly 15 months!!!, after all the file complaints they finally felt responsible for the issue and brought a fixing patch)
Mild Gonolini Call of Duty: Black Ops III Love And War Mild Gonolini's solution for the Love And War Achievement in Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIIn Gorod Krovi, the one must be freed.


Check all the comments in the solution for the exact details.

Because of the BBB complaints we threatened Activision/Treyarch and they fixed it.

When we do file complaints against EA/PopCap we should at least get an answer from them if future Boss Hunt events will happen or not, this will give us enough clarification.

At this point we just don't know if we ever get a new Boss Hunt which is very annoying.

Let's group up as TA community and start filling in those file complaints!

Well said Luuc, complaint filed. I also posted a call to arms on the EA Answers forum where there's another thread regarding Boss Hunt which was ignored by EA. Reddit users should also post in the appropriate subreddit to get this some more steam.

I saw that CvD on the calendar. While it's not Boss Hunt, and I agree that we should've had one by now, at least they're running another rare mode that's required for achievements (as long as they don't cancel/replace it in a few weeks). I already have the achievements for CvD, but it gives me hope that they still might do a Boss Hunt at some point in the future.

I hope the BBB complaints make a difference!

The link worked for me. Also remember to search for Electronic Arts and not EA, since that's the name they registered the business under.

Use a US code, it shouldn't be an issue if the complaint is still valid. I'm sure that's what Luuc did as well.

I like that response. "Yeah, we put the wrong thing on the calendar. We fixed the calendar issue but haven't addressed the fact that we haven't rotated in a promised event after almost a year".

kind of half-arsed apology you would expect, or even not expect one.

I wonder if they have generally decided not to do Boss Hunt anymore, but for the life of them can't decide in how to tell us in general terms.

I also wonder what it generally takes for the mode to be active? a switch/extra bit of code/50p in the slot machine/2 shakes of a lamb's tail/all the stars to align?
