can we also have the mage twa hotfixt to not go down? :3
And why didn’t they started it now and had it up for 2 weeks? Oh wait…..
I like how they start it with "due to a bug..." I just have to step back and laugh. I've been developing code for over 20 years and well, I think of this every time I see a response like "due to a bug..."Whose Job Is ItThis is a story of four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did it, what Anybody could have done.
There's no Faire, people are crying.They fix and postpone it to avoid the "lost" previous days, and people are still crying.Such a bunch of kids ugh.
It would've been nice to have it start when we were supposed to so we can have the XP/rep buff and still do TW dgs for the couple days. Almost seems intentional to avoid giving the boost sometimes.
Small indie company folks.
I just came for the "Reeeeeeee" comments.
Timed my subscription to expire on the Tuesday after the faire starts... so delaying it is not a good fix. Ruins it for me :(
can I suggest having The Darkmoon Faire run for two weeks...?
It's not permanently fixed, either. If you look at in-game calendar, it's only added up and including April. Not showing up for the rest of the year.... And yes, I'm disappointed by the new "delay" as well. I tend to play the long game, including when to expect DMF to be for quest, profs, replacing xp buffs, etc. As the goblins say, "Time is money". I think most of us were expecting it to just start, and push forward a few days (which has been done in the past when it has happened) so I'm a little bummed out by it, and having to re-think some of the time management I had planned for the week. It'll be fine, just damn annoying.
Is it just me or did the exact same thing happen last year?
Logged in a few mins ago and thought to check to see if the calendar was updated. When I saw it was scheduled for next week I was thinking I wanted it now, but realised it's a good thing. Now we get actually get to have a full week of DMF goodness and now I can have a couple more days to gear up alts! Definitely a nice compensation.
OK, I'm being picky but it's not "to compensate" if you're only get 7 days of DMF, the same as you would do in a normal month (and it's 7 days late). Compensation is getting an additional benefit, such as extra days. The phrases "to work around" or "temporarily address the issue" would be more appropriate phrasing. I 'm with Amakina on this one. It's either: a design error (the event should have a program to auto-schedule the event, that runs on a regular monthly or annual schedule to trigger the event in-game and add future event(s) to the in-game calendar); or it's a support/project management failure (if the event is always added manually and the person who usually/used to do it is not available or forgets).Either way, good to know it's coming back.
