    Only the Battlegrounds portion of Midyear Mayhem would've been affected, though...

    Very true. Since their announcement after last years fiasco I thought there had been a dungeon related event that did not specifically require the GF? Maybe I am thinking of dailies with the pledges but I thought it was more than that.
    Really, idk

    Midyear Mayhem is a no win situation.

    Have it?

    Battlegrounds is required for 100% completion of the achievements. BGs are an important part of PVP. Battlegrounds groupfinder is seriously bugged and ZOS knows it. So having the event is a recipe for frustration.

    And, let's be honest, the Cyrodiil campaigns don't handle it well, AND you'd be having it while people are still struggling with the odd faction locking that happened this month.

    Don't have it?

    All the PVPers are annoyed because they don't get their event.


    Best solution?
    Fix BG groupfinder fast.
    Make faction locking clear and work as intended at the end of campaigns.
    Then have Midyear Mayhem.

    Or just remove lock and done. bg’s Made a small portion of the event anyways, especially when they opened up 4 newer campaigns.

    Personally I'm sad that we're skipping Midyear Mayhem because for the most part I've really enjoyed that event in the past (even though I'm not a regular PVPer), but I understand not wanting to have it when such an integral part of it is broken, especially with the player population being as high as it has been over the past ~6 months. If we're seeing issues now, just imagine how amplified they'd be with an event sending all kinds of people who don't usually PVP into PVPland.

    I personally happen to really like the Thieves Guild & Dark Brotherhood event as well, because I like doing heists and sacraments (they're really easy with the right gear and a bit of practice), so for me it's a nice replacement for Midyear Mayhem. At the same time I really hope that they make the needed fixes to the group finder quickly, sort out the faction lock stuff, and hopefully work more on general performance issues, and then give us Midyear Mayhem a bit later in the year when those things are in a better state than they are currently.

    In light of our ongoing work to improve game performance and the Activity Finder, we are holding the Midyear Mayhem event until next year to ensure that the player experience is a good one. In its place, we are moving forward the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood Celebration Event, which will run from July 2 to July 15, and will give players the chance to earn the Event Tickets needed to start the Onyx Indrik mount evolution.

    Are you kidding me??? You removed one of the FEW events pvpers can actually enjoy just for this joke of an event?

    You realise that in current state of PVP you most likely won't be able to enjoy it, yes?

    That’s why they open 4 more campaigns to reduce the strain on the servers.

    Don't get your hopes up, nothing will change, garbage performance is here to stay, if they could fix the server issues they would have done that long time ago.

    @ZOS_SarahHecker

    Does this event come with any double XP source? Lots of hungry alts and new players would appreciate it!

    Could we get some clarification and communication as to what the process has been and how far along in this process we actually are? Any communication would be great, like any at all...
