Midyear Mayhem planning complaint

It's nice that we actually got Midyear Mayhem, I hope it lasts the full 2 weeks. It's a little annoying that the PvP event comes with only 24 hours notice though, I would have saved more AP in preparation for the Golden vendor. Couldn't we get a little notice before the only PvP event in the game?

    Notice, is not something ZOS wants
    as it would enable players to choose and plan ahead, not log on every day to see what is going on


    At least I assume this is the cunning plan, not just pure...

    imagine it got canceled last year and we knew about it ever since that will come around January.

    Last we heard it wasn't going to happen until the servers could handle it. Seems like it came anyway even with the servers as they are.

    Im actually happy they did it granted logging in and DCs are nuts. Its been a nice breath of fresh air to see large battles again. now image what it would be like when the servers can handle it!

    That's the dream. I'm happy to have the event too, but give us a weekend's worth of notice at least. Build a little hype, at least pretend like it's a real event.

    Well, while the official announcement came out the day before, we knew it was coming from the Crown Store Showcase and the hotfix notice on the 20th.

    Be thankful that you are able to log in and play, unlike me.

    Something should have clicked in players heads when we received notice around Jan. 2 that there was going to be a undaunted and midyear pvp event coming soon.

    Yup. We didn't have the exact date, but we did know it was coming "soon". If people intended on preparing in some way, they should have done it.

    Cries with you. I hear you on this. I have school and OT at work this week and whole weekend ;-;

    I wish Midyear Mayhem was before the undaunted festival, Cx.

    To the OP you should be able to get plenty of AP from the event, so I wouldn’t worry.

    I wish they would let us sell AP. I never know what to use mine for beyond the same pots, food, door decorators, or buying tradable jewelry to sell through my guild with a trader.

    They announced it was coming in January the same time around they announced the undaunted event .

    This was from this months showcase as well: “The Star-Made Wolfshead costume will return to the Crown Store for a limited time on all platforms during the Midyear Mayhem event in January. ESO Plus members will receive a discount on this item.” was also multiple threads about the coming event, we just didn’t know the exact date.

    So I wasn’t aware until I logged in yesterday, but to be fair I don’t really pay attention to these kinds of things until I see them on the pop up gump @log in. However, how does one “prepare” for this? You literally just que in and go. Even if all you have is pve setups you can still Zerg surf and get your ap.

    Like I honestly can’t think of anything I’d need to do to prepare so I’m honestly wondering. Maybe I’m just dumb?

    With a bit more advance notice, I might have planned things a bit differently for a couple of PvE raids, which I like to get the roster in advance so we don't spend time trying to recruit in our raid window. Once announced, I don't like just backing out on people. It's not a huge issue, but a bit more notice than 1 day might be nice.

    I feel like they did all but confirm that it was going to be at the end of January. You really have to not be paying attention to miss it.

    Should they give a little more of an official heads up? Yeah, probably.

    Was it a surprise? No, not to anyone who has been watching the forum or the announcements.
