Withering Blight event postponed...

    if it was a prank they wouldnt bother backing up that the event isnt coming out today

    The devs have always been dog ######### at talking to the community and telling us release dates. For spirit it took about a month after she hit PTB to come out and they never said a word about it. We won't know the release date for archives until it actually comes out. Which could be any time between Wednesday/Thursday and a month from now. It's a shame because i haven't played DBD almost at all since June because I've been waiting for the archives

    Behavior will neve announce anything until the day it releases. That's what they almost always do unfortunately. They usually refuse to give any exact dates for things

    Afff, this is a very sad announcement, so much hype for nothing. And i thought we would get the archives tomorrow too. What a burden..

    Severely disappointing BHVR

    Thank you devs for trying to make your game better for us to play, even if that means disappointing most of us with some postponing. I hope most of the PTB bugs will be resolved :D

    I do find sad that we're not getting more transparency on whatever is happening right now in the Studio from you guys though :/

    I'm sure you devs will find a way to make us all happy in the end and give us a wonderful Withering Blight event and Archives Mid chapter 3.3.0 patch.

    I am really excited for the new stuff and had hopes it would start today.

    But if that means the rift might become easier to complete then I am more than fine with that.

    For any avoidance of doubt from people who don't read.

    (the event will still be the same length regardless of when it starts)

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Withering Blight event is postponed until the release of the mid-chapter 3.3.0. We're working on getting the update ready as soon as possible and will keep you posted. Don't worry, the length of the event will remain the same!

    The only developer I am aware of, that I am following, that actually keeps to their roadmap is the developers of Risk of Rain 2.

    Roadmaps, to me, is just a shield that you can hide behind to block criticism on why development is slow. Its kinda like that "Its a Beta™" response.

    We literally just could have Serum tied to gens and hooks, it isn't that hard. But wait, we have to tie this to the Rift so our players will actually consider looking at it. It isn't that hard to just have an event by itself, it doesn't have to tie in with a huge update.

  • CapaldiCapaldi Member Posts: 24

    I think that not confirming anything anytime as an excuse like "we didn't confirmed it, so you shouldn't be disappointed" it's not a very good strategy to keep your player base happy honestly.

  • JimsalabimJimsalabim Member Posts: 641

    well i'm not even surprised to see this news. it doesnt effect me anymore since i jumped boat to Identity V. And for good reason. These devs are incompetent and money seekers. the reason i played the game is still it is a fun game in its core but the lack of commitment to make the game better is just mindblowing. They mostly concentrate on making money and not making the game better. but don't you worry guys, the next set of new skins are already in the pipe line. Enjoy!

    It's weird cause they tried to play a little bit of a shell game with the whole Mid-chapter update. And their announcement made it seem like they thought that they hadn't already confirmed that the Blight Event was connected to the Rift.

    Well we didn't announce the date of the Mid-chapter update so why are you all worried about that .... But it was clearly tied to the Event because of the Rift.. And the Event's dates were confirmed! So it's like they were pretending that they were separate even though it was clear to anybody who had been paying attention that they weren't.

    I'd almost say it was a CYA tactic but if so it was a poor one cause it didn't take into account all the info that we all already knew.

    I get that there might be legal technicalities where since there was never a technical mid-chapter patch release date announcement that they couldn't confirm a date.

    But it's like super Bizzaro to pretend that they are completely separate when they clearly aren't. It's a bunch of corporate double speak that makes no sense in context.

    exactly, that is why i suggested on another post, making the event last for at least 21 days but a month would be better. not everybody can collect all the stuff in time for it's actual purpose.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 3,703

    So hows the event going for everyone? 😥

  • MadjuraMadjura Member Posts: 2,279

    They don't want people to be able to get everything for free.

    The system is set up in such a way that players are encouraged to spend money.

    Helstar, WHY ARE YOU ON THIS FORUM THEN!!!! I mean i am disappointed I was really excited about that event. BHVR gave us a very enjoyable game even with it's bugs and flaws and they keep trying to give us more from it by listening to our complaints and shits. It's delayed: Oh Trappy gingersnaps! I will have to wait ! :( BE like the trapper don't be a snowflake ... LOL😉


  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    yes this is very true but it works both ways. some people can't aford skins so once in a while freebies is good. but to keep employed people stay in game and purchasing stuff, than at least give more notice if issues need fixing. what ever the issue they must have, they must have known before they told us. not fair to people taking time of work and maybe like i have said before, we wouldn't take time of work if they given us a realistic amount of days to collect it all. MEH!

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    where ever you got that from i would like to know? what are the new maps for? does anybody know yet?

  • twistedmonkeytwistedmonkey Member, Trusted Posts: 4,291

    Thats always an issue with skins and there is always a risk of having some players not being able to play in the time of the event at all. Taking time of work is a choice and events are generally set up so you can complete them and work at the same time which I have done with every event in the past.

    An unforseen issue can pop up at anytime and if it's a game breaking bug or its simply not working most devs will work on it trying to fix it up until the last minute as postponing is always a last resort. It's not something any dev willingly wants to do but ######### happens and its something we all have to accept as it's better to be able to play an event that works than one which has issues.

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    i was agreeing with you, you know. completely agree if stuff needs to be fixed before release let it happen. don't release if it's going to get messed up. i was just saying a bit more notice would have been better.
