Are You Feeling Event Fatigue?

We will have had 21 or so weeks of events in the past 33. Are we having too many events, just enough or do we need more?

Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    I dont care about events. Eat the cake everyday once. I don't feel the compulsion to do whatever they want me to do.
    Gulp down a detection pot, find a sneaky little cloaking Nightblade, murder them in cold blood. One of the finest pleasures of life.

    Haven't logged in for a few days now. Don't care about the motifs and lost interests in the mounts. Especially when there is a queue involved.

    I'll try again this weekend. Oh wait, I'm gone for the weekend.

    "I am a nightblade. Blending the disciplines of the stealthy agent and subtle wizard, I move unseen and undetected, foil locks and traps, and teleport to safety when threatened, or strike like a viper from ambush. The College of Illusion hides me and fuddles or pacifies my opponents. The College of Mysticism detects my object, reflects and dispels enemy spells, and makes good my escape. The key to a nightblade's success is avoidance, by spell or by stealth; with these skills, all things are possible."

    I stopped doing events when they announced the berry *** at the begin of the year. The game has more often running an event than not having an event by now. It became exhausting to me so I stopped participating in general.

    No. Five year anniversary should have a lot of events, imho. Experience boost is nice and free stuff. 🙂👍

    I’ve opted out of this event and played like it’s not happening. It’s been nice, but it doesn’t help the feeling of event fatigue because all 5 of my guild chats are focused on the quests, the boxes, the drop rate of Lyris pages compared to Prophet, which zones, which bosses, and on and on. Every. Night.

    I’m over it.

    More events! More XP boosts! More free stuff! If you're feeling burned out, you don't have to do them. Exercise some self-control.

    That's the opposite of what these events with tickets seem designed to do - generate consistent log-ins. Too many events, and people can burn out.

    Also, some people seem to only be thinking about the Anniversary event, but OP is talking about the cadence of events since last fall, which has been way too many for me. Sure, I've participated in all of them to one degree or another, and have earned lots of event tickets, but I do think fatigue is setting in. I'm looking forward to the Anniversary event being over and having a few weeks before Elsweyr's launch.

    Regarding the Anniversary event in particular, I went all out during the 1st week, but have been more lax during this second week. My spouse and I have done WBs almost exclusively, and we've been doing less and less each day. On the weekend, we threw in the Geysers and a couple of delves.

    Taking week 3 off, as I don't PvP. Then, during week 4, we'll see if my spouse and I are up to a few dungeons. We just do them together, so we're usually limited to just one per day, which is fine.

    Then, week 5 I'll go all out again and will undoubtedly get most of the pages and should be able to afford the rest due to the heavy farming that will happen that last week.

    Then, break time!

    I got the prophets pages pretty quick. Haven’t got a single lyriss page. Totally skipped the thieves guild/brotherhood Heist/Sacrement thing

    It’s all I can do to eat the cake and get a ticket.


    No need for xp anymore really.

    I love all of the events. I don't happen to enjoy the current delve quest thing, but it's fine. I'm ignoring that part and will be all over the bg /cyrodiil week. Nothing says we have to do them all. :smile:

    Events are one of the reasons I haven't pre-ordered Elsweyr. I have a lot of underdeveloped characters that I still need to work on, who have been running around thieving, throwing flower petals, and rescuing pigs. They probably would have progressed more by now if they were farming gear, collecting skill points, practicing their rotations, and running dungeons. I'm thinking I should finish them before I even think of picking up a new class and more content.

    Also, I do feel a bit burned out on carrots. Not so much the prizes as the awareness that, however indirectly, I'm chasing them rather than simply playing the game. I used to enjoy logging in every day just because I felt like it. Now that I do it with the thought that it's "for the tickets," somehow it's not quite the same, and 5 weeks straight is quite a lot. I may just take a break once the Anniversary Event is over, skip the release of Elsweyr, and pick the game up again in the Fall.

    I think for people who love the events, though, and especially for those who wouldn't log in otherwise, they are great. "Too many events for me" is not the same as "more events than Zenimax should offer anyone." The game certainly isn't about me, and I'm not forced to participate. I'm thankful for the two Indriks, which I did want and which were, to me, worth the hoops they have us jump through to get them. I'm just ready for a lengthy break after this.

    Its nice we have many calendar events. You don't have to partake but its pleasant knowing you can mostly anytime of the year. If it gets a little overwhelming take a little break. We all need one from time to time.

    They need all these events because of the event tickets though. If you're tired with it, just don't take part. No reason to become concerned.

    The events are to drive log ins, if they back fire and drive folks from the game, or do not generate the interest they are intended to, it can become an issue.

    Seems to be no sign of that happening though. Numbers are up. Participation is optional. Albeit servers are struggling. But your poll was asking if players are tired of events or not.

    Stopped doing them. Who cares. The delve world boss one in particular. It’s boring solo and boring with friends. No one I know is doing them.

    I took a break on week 2. It's outfit styles so can just collect what I like and not worry about crafting.

    I think enjoy double xp instead of trying hoard motifs.
