Can we please get a date for the next Whitestrake's Mayhem?

A couple of people (who haven't been playing ESO for a while, and might want to reinstall and give ESO "one last try") keep asking me when the next PvP event is going to be, and what to expect.

So in addition to an exact date, it would be nice to get some more infos. Like how big the max population will be, and if we can expect good performance.

Thanks.

    Exact dates for events would be nice, so people with jobs, children and other obligations could plan ahead and not miss out on all the fun. Especially events where people have to wait in a queue for a couple of hours every time they get kicked from the game.

    Zos never does this. they are the only video game company that seem to not do it ever. but my guess? around the middle of the month will likely be the event.

    They are never going to do this far in advance for the very reason you mention. People planning ahead and scheduling their lives around a video game event will lose their minds if something happens that forces ZOS to shift dates around last minute. People already meltdown over scheduled maintenance times...

    Events in ESO generally start on Thursdays and generally are announced somewhat before they occur.

    Last year, we got 150,000 Alliance Points as a daily login reward during the event in May.

    This month, we get 100,000 on the 21st.

    As a result, I think it is likely the next Mayhem will start on the 15th.

    Edit: I may be wrong as the Star-Made Wolfshead is for sale till the 29th.

    Generally Mayhem runs for 12 days and the Star-Made Wolfshead is for sale during Mayhem.

    It's possible they shifted the AP rewards to be in the lead up to the event rather than during the event this year.

    So the whole world makes appointments for almost everything (dentist, christmas, new year, vacations, space travel, ESO DLCs, surgery, planes, trains, elections, weddings, work, movie theaters, dinner at a fancy restaurant...) but ESO events have to be unpredictable, like childbirth?

    i dont think the events are too unpredictable, as many times they can be implied roughly through crown store showcases

    the exact dates for the event are usually given about 1-1.5 weeks before the start of the event, though this is not always consistent and there is sometimes only a half a week (4 days or so) announcement before the event

    As others mentioned, we did place an estimated timeframe here. But we should have an announcement in the next or so. While we are always working on ways to mention events as early as we can, there are several factors at play. The major ones being, we are often working on finalizing articles and such, which all have date information that we are getting verified internally. We also want to make sure our timing is accurate and will not change before letting everyone know, because we are aware people schedule time off and plan for this.

    We also should mention this exact thing happened with Whitestrake's last year. We had dates, but then we had an issue where things needed to shift and we needed time to figure out the new time. And many people thought we were cancelling Whitestrake's as a result. Very much would like to avoid issues like that where we can.

    That being said, we know this is a frequent ask, so we will make sure to share this again with the team for discussion.

    I actually think childbirth can be narrowed down more than some of the events are 🤣.

    In all seriousness though … February crown store showcase timings suggests feb 22nd - mar 4th (10am est 5th) is the timeframe they are shooting for. But Kevin above stated why they aren’t upfront with the dates - which makes sense considering last years mayhem
