The other day, I was out and about collecting Coins of Ancestry from Elders for the new dragon pieces.
Another Hallow's End has ended.
Maybe it's just because World of Warcraft is a 14-year-old game and Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm are much newer, but it feels like WoW could definitely learn a few things from its younger siblings when it comes to in-game holiday events.
Update: Hallow's End has begun once more!
I adore the fall.
Yesterday, the Halloween Terror event started in Overwatch, and with it, we finally saw all the new skins and cosmetic goodies.
Hallows' End is nearly upon us.
What do we know about Hallow's End?
Hallow’s End has a wealth of lore behind it — and Blizzard should use that as the foundation of an overhaul to the holiday
In my opinion, Hallow's End has been a casualty of the increasing hostility between the Horde and the Alliance since Cataclysm. In particular, the holiday suffers from two problems -- a tendency toward stagnation and a removal of its in-game cultural significance that renders it effectively meaningless.
Yesterday officially concluded the last of Blizzard's Hallow's End event, with Heroes of the Storm's celebration ending a decent bit after both World of Warcraft and Overwatch's.
