Despite normal raids not spawning at all for a few hours prior, no articuno spawned when the event started.
Azores always were weirdly divided by Niantic. Sometimes we’re considered part of Europe, other times part of America. Here community days start according to the Americas, wich means 6pm local time.
This articuno event seemed to be no different, as we had no articuno in the morning hours (Europe’s event) and raids stopped spawning few hours before the Event.
Now here’s the issue: Raids here stop spawning at 17:45. And at 18:00 no Ice Birdies showed up, all gyms stayed empty.
This happening right after being exluded on the “Europe”-wide corsola event really hurts the motivation of our local community
