I work nights, so playing close to an update time isn't new to me.
However; I was so invested in getting the Fifth Inning Showdown done that I lost track of time.
Beat Rivera, got zero stars and kicked from the servers.
Logged back in this morning, still nothing. Pretty pissed.
Sorry to hear that.
Had this happen earlier in the year. It was a moment, can't remember which, but it was a pain. Finally got it done, didn't realize it was 5 am and got kicked to the main menu.
Finished the moment the next night. Sometimes there is a clock counting down to the update, but not always.
