Something like that doesnt take alotta time to write it. Lets be honest. It was probably written on the spot on Friday, they all went home, resumed work today and still not made much ground work towards fixing the "gamebreaking issues". Maybe they're 80% of the way.. they still wont wanna release it tomorrow. Which means it'd have to be certified wednesday, they'll do their stream thursday.. probably with alotta censorship to avoid the understandable outrage. Certification will pass friday, they'll go home for the weekend.. we're looking at a monday-tuesday release next week i'm speculating
I hope no one was drinking water at the precise time they read this title.
i'd say thursday is the day
When we get the patch I expect game to be near unplayable due the amount of game breaking bugs, as every engine update so far.
you must be playing dbd
i think the most logical thing to do is release the ######### event on thursday, the hype already died ages ago so why not just release it on hallow's eve at this point
I checked the DbD discord recently and @Peanits had said they're aiming for before Halloween.
He also said no promises though but its something thats their current goal but it could be missed.
yes this thursday would be ideal as its right before halloween's evening
New patches always get released on tuesdays as far as I remember. Unless they make an exception this time, it will probably be released on the tuesday next week.
I'll never understand why people are so bent out of shape over this delay.
I would like to see at least the classic outfit from ma bb Ghostface :(
Because its a Halloween event that may not be out for Halloween.
We'd be grinding for ghost flashlights after the season for that stuff and jack-o-lanterns is over.
If it is then prepare for half of the perks to not work for weeks. I wonder what will they manage to break this time
Personally, I am very disappointed because the game is getting very stale and kind of boring for me and the new event/archives would definitely be a refreshing change. It also feels like the patch wasn't even close to being ready for the release after reading their latest post and they set the date for event way too early.
I understand why people are disappointed. What I don't get is absolute ######### fits some people had over it. That's mostly settled down. But the intial announcement was followed by a tidal wave of anger. For something as inconsequential as an event I just don't get it.
Like I said above. The disappointment I get. I was looking forward to the archives myself. I'm more confused by the rage storm that followed.
yep the game is extremely stale, especially when you compare it to Identity V (try it out it's free and has a pc client). the amount of fun modes they have and every surivivor is unique and has special abilities. I mean it's not hard to make the switch to that game.
Are you really that excited about the archives? It's more of the same, doing dailies to unlock cosmetics. you will be "entertained" for a little while until you get bored again. This game is so stale and the devs will do nothing to change that after more than 3 years of development... let's not begin about the bugs and extreme slow adding of stuff to the game (unless it's cosmetics). I'm so glad I'm released from this game, even though it was so fun for a long time because the core mechanics are addicting to say the least.
@BBQnDemogorgon I guess, but Borderlands 3 "Halloween" event is going all the way to December 5th.... So it would be unusual but not out of the question if it so happen to not be this month. They only got a few days left and haven't heard any word about it since it was put out about it being postponed.
the fact that you just don't understand that yes, the event will come after Halloween makes me kinda sad.
Peanits has said they're still aiming for before Halloween though.
That's what they're aiming for, but realistically it's extremely unlikely. Peanits also said that they needed to send the update for certification when it's ready, which could take a few days. They were clearly still in the middle of working on it according to the update they released last Friday, so my guess is they didn't finish it Monday either. If we're being optimistic, it might not get done until Wednesday, and then unless certification goes through unusually quickly, we're looking at an event release post-Halloween.
The fact that this week has been dedicated to damage control - Q&A, further updates, etc. - seems to suggest that they're not expecting to have the update out this week either. In short, saying that they're aiming for a pre-Halloween release tells us that they're pushing themselves to get it out ASAP and haven't completely ruled out the possibility of it being this week. That doesn't mean it's at all likely that it will be.
not happening, wait until November 5th.
If they don’t release it before 31st they might as well scrap the event, you don’t earn serum with the event so it wouldn’t even be too bad.
They shouldn't scrap it. I'll take all the extra bloodpoints I can get. Yeah, a Halloween-themed event after Halloween will be weird and out of place, but I'm not about to trade bonus BPs for atmosphere.
@Peanits ? :(
Patch is never coming just give up hope
I hope you're joking. I'm disappointed too, but it's been barely a week.
They can stretch out Halloween for me. I'm not ready for the barrage of Christmas themed stuff for the next 2 months.
