    Not sure if this is due to the devs wanting to keep a surprise factor up or anything but the news regarding this event was a little too quiet. We usually at least know which styles we get. I can't look forward to something if I don't know what to look forward too, personally.
    Please correct me if I'm wrong because I am not sure at all, but was the Anniversary event always so secretive about the rewards?

    I believe this is the first time they have been so secretive towards an event like this. But also keep in mind that this is the 10th anniversary so they might have something extra special planned that they felt the need to surprise us with. The wait shouldn't be that much longer though and I can't wait!

    I’m anxious as hell! Also it’s like when you’re a kid you know your B’day is coming up but you don’t know what your parents are planning but you expect it to be good.. also nothing wrong with making a mistake. They should have written it better. As for sarcasm...why? Especially from strangers
    Sarcasm is not polite. So in my opinion if you have nothing nice to say...say nothing. Most people ask a question because they REALLY don’t know..

    Could we at least get the patch notes now? I legitimately can't wait any longer. Its 11 pm for me but I want to stay up to see what all this hype is about

    Well they are probably testing the servers now. US and EU servers show up but locked.

    A little suspense is a good thing but recently we aren't getting any information. We find out Thursday about the events for that Thursday. This level of secrecy is extreme and not great for building excitement and anticipation.

    They've been like that for hours—not sure that means anything.

    The only reason I see it as 'not good' is if it's building false expectations. If we are all assuming the reason why there is no info, is because there is some magical thing going to happen and if it's just the same event as last year AND no gift or a lackluster gift, people will be disappointed. that on us...the players? Yes, it is, but the Devs should know if left to our own devices too long we will generally get a mob mentality going. Especially when the few nuggets that have been dropped by the devs seem to point to something impressive or surprising. The same ol' same ol' will be a bit of a letdown. This is why I will save any reaction till the 11th at least. I'm not sure today's launch will be the full monty.

    Pitchforks and torches by Tuesday though....o_O

    Just waiting for the EU server to unlock.

    Sooo... will EU come online soon?

    Or do US get 5 hours downtime, 1,5 hours testing, followed by half an hour bug-fixing, so EU gets an 8 hour downtime followed by a smooth Event launch? ;)
