Have they at least put up the yearly Halloween decorations in Avengers Tower?

I haven't been in game since the past patch so I don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't. I remember one year they didnt put them up until with week AFTER Halloween.

Lol at this point, it is disappointing but definitely not surprising.

There have not been any patches for PC since September 7, so no.

Will it be added Thursday if they need a patch to turn on Civil War? Who knows.

Sometimes they do Halloween/Fall events that involve collecting 4 glowing pumpkins and then exploding. Similar to the Christmas/Winter version with a snowflake or Saint Patrick's clover and so on.

They could throw us a daily log-in pumpkin surprise with a crate of 25 eternity splinters and call it a day for Halloween. That's very doable and better than nothing.

Hey All, the Dev team is focused in on the PC Omega patch update as we speak and we unfortunately can't do more Halloween content past the costumes we brought back without updating the client. Hope this makes sense, and we can't wait to bring regular PC updates moving forward very soon.

Can't wait to try the new comings in TC! :#

doesn't quite explain some of the halloween stuff missing from the store. feels like bags and wolverine costumes should be there (also hoping chase costumes go on sale soon).

Tl;Dr: Developers are still too busy working on something that they have been working on for over a year. Don't expect even the bare minimum of attention to PC until it's done. Please spend money.

Wish I could say I am surprised, but this has been a frequent statement this past year.

Did I oversleep a couple of months and we're already at 2018? If not, how have they been working on it "for over a year"? BUE came in january, PC development was kinda halted after that, console came somewhere in june, between june and now I cant really count 12 months. 4-5 tops. Did I miss a memo where years have gone from 12 to 5 or 6 months?

can't speak to the rest of the patch, but omega items have definitely been in development for over a year at this point (though this seemingly includes completely scrapping previous work on them and retooling).

And thats about it. And they havent really been in the works for over a year, we saw some concepts of ideas they had, but those were mock ups, not actual items designed. Since the items and powers team were busy with the BUE (reworking all pieces of gear to the new attribute system), proper work on omega items didnt start until after january.

Rather a day as a wolf than a thousand years as a sheep.

We heard about omega items since before the BUE. Also, the BU E was really a preparation for console, so really it has been much longer than a year when you consider every single update this past year and a half has been with the console in mind.

So to answer your question @SneakyErvin: I don't know your sleep habits but I know Omega has been "in the pipeline" for over a year.
