Apparently they're having some issues and bugs that need fixing, and they rather release it fully playable than buggy. I suppose that's a good thing...but it's gonna be late, and it's a real shame.

 

It better be good though. A Halloween event after Halloween already passed just doesn't feel right.

edit: also how hard it must be to post a little informative article on the main site telling players it's going to be delayed, most people would be perfectly content with just knowing it's delayed even if there is no reason given apart from "technical difficulties" but no you must dig everything up from 3rd party websites since they often have the info out weeks before someone at the office wakes up to post old news.

Well... I kinda agree with this article.

 

Better late than never...

 

Maybe Wargaming will start learning from their mistakes...

 

Bugs/issues will be solved before launching the new events for live servers who knows...

 

I hope they won't mess up things too much because I really want to see fun Halloween game mode.

It's fine.

 

In fact, I don't really believe in this sentence myself...:(

They have been event heavy of late. And not all of them launched perfectly. I suspect you get less ppl mad if you delay it, then launch it broken.

It's okay, we'll hope, maybe they really learned, who knows? :)

Doesn't make much of a difference to me really. As long as the event itself is good with nice rewards then i don't mind the delay. Thanks for the information though.

That is not only technical difficulty WG is suffering.

Lack of competent employees is a good start.

If i screw up this often i'd be fired by now.

Every year they struggle putting halloween content on with bugs and glitches of one sort or another, i bet that's what is causing people to have a problem with ping/lag at the moment!!!!

Literally all of their resources are pumped into the milking parlour that is premium shop. The less players they have, tbe harder they squeeze. Last rites cant be too far away on EU and NA.
