    Dude get over yourself. Delays happen. They don't owe you a damn thing.

  • itsmetimohthyitsmetimohthy Member Posts: 42

    Yeah I’m not rioting. Stop feeling entitled. They are doing their best to get the next update to us. Just be patient.

    After not having a bbq event, waiting a bit for a full halloween event is fine. They could just nix it altogether and say "heres your patch, ungrateful shits".

    They don't have a deadline or contract WITH US to deliver. The fact they tell us about things ahead of time is a COURTESY. Yet people take it and make it the hard coded timeline.

    You know guys, threads like these almost make me sad BHVR interactive's stock is in a private market, it would be funny as heck to watch this community's bickering make the ticker do the worm daily.

    Family getting gifts on birthdays and christmas is a surprise?

    I'd say it's rather expected...

  • mutabletiger4mutabletiger4 Member Posts: 183

    I'd rather wait a bit for something that works. Nothing is set in stone. Double BP's would be nice, but Behaviour has no obligation to give us that

  • PeasantPeasant Member Posts: 4,105

    Look at it this way folks, either way BHVR was gonna be in trouble with the issues. So they had 2 options:

    Release a broken event and just let the community suffer through it and rage on the forums


    Delay the event to ensure customer satisfaction knowing the delaying the event would case rage on the forums.

    Either way, BHVR was getting burned and guess what? They chose the route that hurts us the least. I understand that a number of people called out of work or took time off for this and I get that you're frustrated. But, be happy that you're being frustrated that the event is going to be fashionably late and not broken and here.

    You know they don't have to do anything they could cancel the event and call it a day

  • twistedmonkeytwistedmonkey Member, Trusted Posts: 3,875

    In what way have I attacked people? I have used arguments to explain why we should be grateful for these events, why we are never entitled to them and why some demanding something for free is disrespectful in nature.

    This whole discussion shows todays society at it's worst. When something is given for free and some personally start to expect more it shows the value of a simple act of generosity is being lost.

    The value of something for free is never about what you get out of it or wish it to be but that you have been giving the opportunity to get it at all.

    Most of the upset comes from poor communication, and people are aloud to be frustrated by that. A lot of folks were already bummed to find out the event would be so late in the month, and to find out the day before that the event is not happening feels like a smack in the face to the people who planned time out of their work/school week to play the event.

    This isn’t just people being impatient, I’m willing to wait as are many others. More than 24 hours notice would have caused less of a stir. As would a new release date.

    Im gonna cut them some slack here because I know these are some of the most transparent devs out there usually, they normally are pretty good at letting us know what’s going on. This was an oopsie, I will forgive it. Hopefully they don’t leave us in the dark for a week, it’ll just cause more upset if they do.

  • S_PandaS_Panda Member Posts: 539

    "Or we riot!" You mean what is normally happening anyway?

  • PeterHausenAoiPeterHausenAoi Member Posts: 3

    Take the time.

    Make it shiny.

    But i'm genuinely interested in those "unforseen circumstances".

    Did an intern delete the master branch or what ? :)

  • WolfPad06WolfPad06 Member Posts: 182

    It's dissapointing, yes, but if they felt the need to push it back then you know it would've been completely unplayable in the current state. BHVR wouldn't have delayed it just to polish or detail it! *Insert black panther "we don't do that here" meme*

    I understand both sides of the argument:

    This event is an awesome content update that we're going to enjoy free of charge. They do not *have* to do this and even with the delay, we will have the same amount of time to play and get the cosmetics. I don't see the big deal here.

    On the other hand, BHVR isn't necessarily doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They're doing this to remain competitive and relevant in the current gaming market; this is a business decision people, do not delude yourselves thinking they do this simply because they like you. This delay on the release, and especially the lack of follow up information show a poorly organized and not very transparent operation.


    We can wait out the delay, it's not the end of the world and double BP won't really make us feel much better. But these type of things add to the extensive list of BHVRs poor decision making, resource management, and planning, and I'm sure people are more upset at the constant way they do things poorly than just this event delay as an isolated incident (I know I am).

    Hope everyone has a good day and also hope the event isn't delayed for too long.

  • NoOneNoOne Member Posts: 32

    Jeez, why don't we all chill. It's just delayed and not cancelled.

    Sure getting things delayed sucks. But as mentioned before, i'd rather them take a few days or so to work things out and put out a better update and event. There is no need to spread hate or be toxic towards the devs, lol.

  • LapisInfernalisLapisInfernalis Member Posts: 871

    I can wait a few days more, but I would appreciate a little bit more detail about the issue that caused the delay. Was it a serious bug that needed to be fixed or due to the power outage? Etc. etc....

    It would make understanding the delay much easier for all.

  • MadjuraMadjura Member Posts: 1,138

    The lack of a detailed explanation for the delay makes it look like the battlepass system is responsible for this but they can't publicly say this or people might get (rightfully) upset.

  • TangeroTangero Member Posts: 119

    Then flip on that double bloodpoint switch to appease us for now

  • altruisticaltruistic Member Posts: 1,070

    You're still gonna buy the rift pass.

    You're still gonna buy their upcoming DLC's.

    You're still going to buy cosmetics in the shop.

    You're still gonna play the game.

    Stay in your lane.

  • GrimbergothGrimbergoth Member Posts: 293

    you forgot a few ,

    You're still gonna have to deal with bugs from updates .

    You're still gonna have to deal with things broken from updates .

    You're still gonna complain .

    And my favorite , If you don't like it you can always go play civ 5...

  • SairekSairek Member Posts: 4,957

    I still can't get the infinite droning hum of the swamp boat out of my head that one patch.

    I legit disconnected every time I got that map when that sound bug was around. It was really bad.

  • UlvenDagothUlvenDagoth Member Posts: 3,535

    Or the "Oh hey you can't hear the gen on the other side of this wall, and someone can walk RIGHT BEHIND YOU and unhook and you can't hear it." bug.

    I think I remember one streamer lightly looking around a corner and you could hear the survivor on the group cause her mouth was visible... one inch back and you can't hear ANYTHING.

    I don't want ANY of that in the game. That would break it in HALF.

    Well if you go, bye and I hope you find a game that makes you happy.

    I do wonder if Stranger Things was pushing the patch out, or they were scared cause if they delayed it ALL OF YOU WOULD DO THIS EXACT THING THAT YOU ARE DOING!

    It's a whole new engine update. Do you want the sound broken like in PTB? Do you want things to be even more buggy and tattered? I think it's funny so many people say they should take time off of DLCs and fix bugs but the second they do, this kinda thing happens.

    All of you here, I understand you are upset, and i'm not saying that you can't be upset. But don't be rude with it. There are reasons for what they are doing, and we need to trust them.

    Quick question for you. Can you explain where you thought I was being rude?

  • UlvenDagothUlvenDagoth Member Posts: 3,535

    Oh sorry, I should have made that more clear. That last part with the "I'm not saying you can't be upset, just don't be rude." was more of a general statement for the forum. I thought about it after I posted it, and will update it now to avoid the confusion. You, yourself, were being mostly level-headed.

  • bubbascalbubbascal Member Posts: 318

    @UlvenDagoth How are you jailed?

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 1,930


    While I kinda agree with some of your points, I also disagree with some.

    I should make clear that I do not think we should expect a double bloodhunt or deserve one, if it happens sure I will not say no to that. However you seem to kinda get confused on some things.

    This has nothing to do with family, you will always be more understanding towards your family and the people you love. We are customers, we are not friends or anything else.

    A gift is a great thing and all but when you make the promise kind like this "in 2 weeks on tuesday you will get y from me".. "wow dude, that is so generous and cool of you thanks alot man!". But in 2 weeks I have to ask "so uhm yeah about y, what happened?".

    Sometimes it is better to not say that you gift something and just gift it when it is ready because otherwise it makes you look bad.

    Also I find it very odd that they push out the halloween outfits, that you can buy already. The clown one is broken as he doesn't have a weapon or just can be seen when you have an attack animation. I thought when they released the feng and doctor outfit afterwards they sure will fix that one but they didn't. Stuff like that is a no go when you ask 10€ for an outfit.
