    Was a simple question... a simple answer would have been suffice..

    I am a little disappointed that there is no new quest related to Halloween this year. I look forward to the Halloween events each year. The Trick or treating is exactly the same as last years. The new Pumpkin Spawns are fun for about a day, but with no real use for the masks with the esception of deco, its pretty boring. Only thing its going to do is put something new on next years "Spring/Summer cleaning list"

    I have thus far seen no indication there's anything other than the pumpkins and related content.

    hard to say, but im guessing the pumpkin and trick or treating will run all month and perhaps the more in depth quests/events will start alil closer to halloween. Also depends if they are just going to do EM halloween stuff and not a general quest like years past.

    Compared to the last few years, this is a real let down.

    I hope its because they've been busy with other stuff they didn't put a huge amount of effort into this.

    How hard would it be to post the friggin link instead of being short........ That is the worst type of post. You took time to post and only offered negativity.
    Just what the world needs

    Im willing to bet this is all we get. No other holloween event has been in stages, and theres no indication this one will be either.

    Don't think you really needed one but your welcome :)

    They are fun to take even when not needed :lol:


    If you check out this post http://vboards.stratics.com/2024723-post73.html I think it eludes to there being more that we just have not ran across yet. The year when The Grim Reaper hit everyone was talking about how lame the content was and we had found it all..... Then next thing you knew you were getting killed by The Grim Reaper you had fought the night before when you logged back in the next day :D

    While Halloween Content has really never been added in waves, it does on occasion take a while for US all to figure out what all is there. Either way, I am fine with the content, some is better than none :D

    What you link to is, I have long suspected,
    the beginnings of a Dungeon of Sin/anti-Virtue Dungeon/"legacy" dungeon revamp.
    Multiple teams have raised such as a possibility and
    using old areas for new content was specifically raised, or at least implied, by the Producer in Twitter posts cited in this thread.

    So my guess is: That stuff is for later.

    Aye, very well could be. I will admit that. I am just hating the negativity and doubt so soon into the Halloween content.

    But.....

    when would be a good time to roll out something along the lines you are thinking of? Halloween would be in my mind. Unless of course they save it for a "booster pack". *sighs*

    I thought it was rather creative and new artwork is always a bonus! It wasn't just the same old thing we normally get however, I do wish there was a little more too it because ummm its 10:29pm on October 1st and I am already done and I have already obtained all the masks. *Light bulb*

    Maybe I'll go and wreak hellish havoc upon the minds of Dudley and Drosselmeyer...In the spirit of Halloween of course *Evil Grin* :pie:

    ya i feel it was another lazy effort by the dev team, they create 1 new thing to fight and get special masks off of, as compared to the grim reapers a few years back, and the quest to get crystallized essences, those were both a lot of fun, this just seems very lazy to me, i wouldn't be surprised if they activate the same exact thanksgiving event that they did for the last 2 years when it gets closer to turkey day

    I do seem to remember that they said there would be a new "treat", maybe people just havent gotten it yet? Dunno.

    I hope youre right anyway. I was really hoping for something more like a few years back with the black cat statues, and pumpkin scarecrows. I really enjoyed that year.
     
  17. I had thought, myself, that the killer pumpkins and masks were the special treat for which we needed to keep our guard up (as the killer pumpkins would startle us the first time we thought we were about to pick up a shiny new jack-o'-lantern).
    Oh, and the new (to me) tricks you get while trick-or-treating.

    The new treat may be something we have yet to find. Don't be too quick to dismiss the possibility so soon.

    I dunno... its been a couple of days, I think it would have come up by now. I'm pretty sure it was the killer pumpkin that were talking about, and if it wasn't It would be great if they told us!

    Dont be ungratefull... imagine the amount of work for not just Holloween.

    Lets see:
    Clean up Brit.
    14th ann.
    14th Vet rewards
    Holloween
    Thanksgiving
    Christmas
    oh and the compensation gift for the billing fiasco they were not responcable for.

    Not to mention the bugs, gliches, and fixes for the next publish that has to come out on time...

    I for one am just fine with what we got, but if they want to make a dungeon or 2 into a holloween playground its fine by me.
