Here's what I am tired of.I know they try as best as they can, but every holiday, every time it's an RNG-based holiday, there is always some major bug that pops up, makes doing the RNG quests or tokens hard, and it goes thru half the event. Then, instead of extending the event, they say "we'll fix it next year", then next year, another bug happens and does the same thing.Brewfest has had one or more buggy quests or events since it began (Direbrew attacks have NEVER been 100% working all the time) Love is in the Air underwent a revamp (in some ways, for the worse) and became almost more of a grindfest than the RNG fest it was before. Hallow's End has been plagued with bugs since it had it's original revamp.I get it, bugs happen, but it's always a bug that goes for half the holiday, and makes it even more of a pain in the ass or even some things flat-out impossible, and it's always shoved off to be fixed "next year", and another one happens. I think holidays have only been extended twice because of a massive bug.I hope this one doesn't screw up, but I have a feeling this early warning on what GM's can and cannot do is part attempting to head off the whining about RNG, and part warning about what bugs might occur.

I agree.Don't even get me started on what happens if you go to finish up a holiday... only to find that you are missing many, if not all, of the ones you completed the year before! I used to love achievements. The challenge was a fun diversion to the daily grind... but after being told it was "probably my fault" and "I must have been mistaken" as to what I spent -days- completing (on my main, the only one that I bother to do world events on), I just gave up. This new 'heads-up' feels like an insult to injury via a door slam/a shoo go away sign in the face.Gee thanks.

So Blizzard firstly dont bother paying their thrid party organisers to put on BlizzCon and blame some crappy and lame excuse that a few days appearance for Dept Figureheads to rock up to BlizzCon will drop their productivity.Then they advise that yes we run buggy Events - but dont bother our customer service agents - as we still want your monthly subscription but we dont want to bother servicing you - but would rather maximise Blizz profit. So keep quiet and just play dammit.Looking forward to these new MMOs with Tera and GW2!
