I find that when I have a specific route in mind, the World of Trucks server never generates that route. Instead, I think of a general direction I want to go in rather than a specific destination and take any load that matches that criteria. If you're looking for a very specific route, you could be waiting a very long time for it to generate, if it ever generates at all. Alternatively, if you're trying to get a city for an event, you could drive to that city empty and haul a load from that city.

Yeah I've done that several times too. Especially for new dlc's. If I wait too long, I just get to a closer city along that route and hope that the next city inline, gets me there. I might refresh about 5 times max before trying something else out. If not, then my distance is as shorter bobtail trip to my intended city. I rarely have to bobtail but I will if I must.

@LAFAYET47 I could be wrong, but I don't think the job length slider affects WOT contracts. (But I am now going to test it.)

Yeah that is exactly what I have done. Seeing I couldn´t get any load from Pueblo going to Alamosa, I had no other choice than driving empty to there. But once in Alamosa I just can´t leave the place without a load because it won´t count for the event then.

Sorry guys, seems like I'm just too stubborn, lol. When events of this type are in place I love to choose specific routes going to cities I previously decided, like kind of a planned tour across the state. I did the same with Idaho event and had no issues finding jobs if I remember correctly.

When no events are going on yes I can take whatever route or going to whatever city, have zero problems. But discovering events are other thing for me.

Anyone else having issues with WOT jobs not counting toward the event today. I did three runs and none of them counted. All were external contracts and over 100 miles in length.

@deross55 Were the jobs to cities that you already completed? The event only counts each city once. You must take a load to or from each of the 13 cities in Colorado.

Thank you! That could be it. I have completed 9/13, so I will need to double check.

^What was helpful for me is that I wrote down all 13 and once I deliver to or from a city, I cross it off my list. Its easy to lose track because the game doesn't give you a visual for what cities you have done.

@flight50 It's a WOT event so to view the WOT jobs completed go to WOT https://www.worldoftrucks.com Make sure you're logged in, select "MY PAGE" then "LOG BOOK".
