    But will Event Tickets be visible (added) in the currency tab in our inventory?

    No. It says at the end of the article that the event will also come back later this year. ;)

    Why is it only 11 days where New life Festivals was over 20?

    That's why you get two tickets a day. The Undaunted event was even shorter. New life was during holidays, with many people not being able to play for at least some days.

    Why have rewards for the worthy End of Campaigns rewards still the old Jewelry and now the event keeps old jewelry.


    Why do I always feel PvP players get shafted for events?

    New Life Festival also gave 1 ticket per day, while Midyear Mayhem gives 2 per day.

    Midyear Mayhem is normally shorter, this summer's ran from July 26th to August 6th. Also, it generates a lot of AP currency, so ZOS probably wants to limit the extreme inflation.

    Mostly because our event makes the thing we love to do unplayable.

    And if there are, please remember to turn on the Emperorship for the new campaigns, unlike last event.

    So the PVP event is justified as being shorter because it gives some more tickets towards a mount?

    No, it has a quite average length for an event, you're just comparing it with the longest event we had.

    No...

    Its justified because that's about the same amount of time is was the last time we had Midyear Mayhem. And there's currency reasons for it to always have been a little shorter.

    Finally, its not like we are missing out on anything from the shorter duration. 2 Event tickets per day and tons of opportunities to earn reward boxes, unlike New Life which has a daily maximum of rewards. I dont know about you, but my inbox and inventory gets flooded with the Midyear Mayhem reward boxes every time I play Cyrodiil.

    Not all events are the same duration. Plus, you get 2 event tickets per day instead of just one during NL. Also, NL is during the winter holidays, where a lot more players are traveling and aren't able to play.

    ETA: PvPers are getting TWO Midyear Mayhems this year, plus I believe there will be an Imperial City anniversary event.

    We will get the event twice this year = 24 days where New Life only got 21 days. I'm pretty happy about this!

    Want to make sure your stay in Under 50 campaign lasts as long as possible?

    I've never participated in the MYM event, but if it shows up as two separate character buffs then you might be able to remove just a single (XP) effect. Worth a try anyway.

    The very reason why PvP is dying and factions are pretty much pointless... Any one remembers the times when campaigns were alliance - locked ? No ball group AP farmers, no faction hoppers, no re-logers, no scroll stealing exploits... every one was fighting for their own alliance and for its Victory in the campaign.... Good old times

    I like your idea but technically even then you could get another alliance toon in using group queue and leaving them in the campaign. It is how I maintained Crack Wood Cave as a good grind spot.

    Am I the only one confused by the 'Mid year' part of this? Unless it's confused Aussies running things then it's due in July/August. Unless it's 'Bi-Annually Mayhem' which would make more sense.

    I ain't knockin' the generosity, but I'll seriously question it during lag at 3pm and 120 queues at 5pm on a Tuesday.

    My question also.

    And will it be costly to switch to these new campaigns?

    No, Encore fits perfectly well.
