You know... Every other "MMO" has their Halloween themed events going on for half a month right? What good is it to run an event thats less than one week long?


Is this an MMO?

And its not Halloween, its the Harrowing. And it will run to November 13th, so even if the patch for it goes live on the 31rst, thats still a 2 week event.

Harrowing = Halloween. Same thing, just named differently.

Semantics arguments always make me chuckle.

"It's Christmus, not Christmas. Obviously different events."

Na its more like complaining about not having a Christmas party on the 15th, chill and wait, there is still a whole week till Halloween.

As much as the op does seem to be complaining for the sake of it, they are somewhat right...

Pretty sure the last 2 years, and last year especially, they started the harrowing event around oct 19th so it went into halloween while the event was on.

To me, if it starts on the 31st and goes till the 13th of november.. It just isn't about halloween, its just a random 2 weeks after with halloween stuff.

-look at it this way, people start decorating their houses for halloween week(s) in advance for halloween, then after halloween night, they take it down. No one sets up their decorations on the 31st and then leaves them on for weeks.. Because its just odd. Just like what riot may end up doing

No it isn't. Its league's seasonal event that happens every october that happens to have similarities with Halloween. If it was a halloween event, it would be called "halloween" and it would last 1 day, October 31rst. Its its own deal and as such they can schedule it whenever the hell they want.

Nope. Halloween isn't a 1 or 2 week long event in any culture that calls it "Halloween". Thus the Harrowing isn't Halloween. Plus there is no trick or treating involved in the Harrowing as you can't give candy out, can only buy it in the store.

MMO= massive multiplayer online... so yes... it is an MMO.

League isn't massively multiplayer online. Its heavily instanced. There is no situation where thousands of people are in a game at once. You could maybe call it an MO, but it fails at the first M.
