    It’s not even Orsinium’s anniversary... So what’s that about?

    Yeah, it's 3 months earlier than last year. But, at the very least, it gives me something to do while I wait for the long Cyrodil queues next weekend.

    I believe they forgot about imperial city anniversary event xD this is sad.

    Except if they make it earlier because MURKMIRE launch would prevent it ? In this case this is a great idea.

    They ruined the two pvp events of the year for Pve stuff. No wonder we feel ignored. It’s justified

    With another Pve event to overlap it at this rate.

    I guess that's one way to get PVEers out of the Cyrodiil queues...send them to fight over double node drops in Orsinium.

      Or do both. I figure Vivec queues will be three hours long next weekend when the Orsinium event starts. Plenty of time to get a Maelstrom completion or farm nodes while waiting.

      I'm assuming that they just moved the Orsinium event to August because it would overlap with the Murkmire release in the fourth quarter. Don't brandish your pitchforks yet at least.

      I want to provide a bit of insight to my Midyear mayhem event experience.

      Event opens: Queue for Vivec 500+ Shor 400+
      Friday night 6pm (right after work): queue is at Vivec 550 shor is at 350
      Saturday Morning: 6:00am Vivec queue 350 shor cue 250
      Saturday night: 9:00pm vivec queue 500+ shor is 350+
      Sunday Morning: 7:45am I'll finally get to start playing because the queue is a reasonable 23 position wait.

      My question is how can I enjoy the midyear mayhem event if I can't log into the PVP servers? My guild only plays on one of these two servers. In addition, why do I have to wait 2+ hours to get some pvp action of my favorite game? Every time I've seen the cue like this I've simpled closed the game and decided to play something else altogether.

      Probably because in that timeframe there will already be Witches Festival, Clockwork City anniversary (yes there's going to be one), and Murkmire release.

      Not very different from how the combined TG and DB events into one to space them out from Summerset release.

      Omg the servers are such complete a$$ why did you actually start the event. BG deserter penalty Ever second match... load screens every 10 minutes in the open field..,. Break frees that take 5 casts..... LoS skill landing even though I well out of line of sight.

      Such an epic disappointment compared to last year.

      Just be glad there’s still anyone PvP on PC, on Xbox the worst que I’ve had is 23 for Venice and Vevic is the only one even getting pop locked.

      Of course it’s barely worth trying with the sad stat of lagging and invisible/ghost skills that just never happen

      XBox NA. And considering Fengrush streams, its definitely PC also. Can't count the number of ghost DBoS and Forward Momentum that dont unroot me. DC at least twice a day, 2 to 3 load screens when traveling between Keeps, 2 GCD between each of my 3 back bar buffs.
