First we will pull it, undocumented, unmentioned, and unexplained. Then we will ignore or deny all /reports on it being missing and redirect everyone into limbo until such time has passed that we can feel comfortable saying "You can't expect us to change it back NOW can you?""

    It will stand as an example to me of how Trion will "deal" with "fixing" what wasn't a "problem" to begin with and then hide behind some malarkey excuse...

    So long as I can get some Yule whiskey at some point I can handle the presents.

    Yeah, the first "Yule" (i.e. cheesy Xmas) Rift I saw I almost dropped my keyboard, too much cheesy imho.

    Look, I'm NOT against the holidays, so why not just have it snow in Telara and have arctic themed Rifts, not snowmen and christmas gifts under a christmas tree.

    Create some cool, new snow creatures to fight. I like their abominable snowman, it's a pretty cool lookin' yeti type creature, so why not continue in that vain and create more arctic type monsters to spawn out of some snow Rifts?

    They did because of the QQ threads on the forums about nothing for Halloween (and there weren't even very many).

    When LOTRO added seasonal festivities, it certainly lost none of its epicness. But then LOTRO has Hobbits, and any game with Hobbits has to have some light-heartedness in the mix. However, LOTRO did not utilize Santa or the Easter Bunny, etc. Perhaps Rift just needs to provide a context for Yule and any upcoming festivals, and though the Santa-themed stuff is cute, not sure it's quite right for Telera.

    Seasonal and other festivities fit easily into any time frame and on any world. But for the sake of immersion, they need to make contextual sense. It's hard to say that seasonal events make sense in pretty much any game since most (including LOTRO) do not have seasons. There, we are expected to suspend disbelief. But given what lore we have, Santa, the Easter Bunny, and other such modern icons pretty much violate sense in Rift- indeed in any game not set in modern times on Earth. Rift could keep many of the holiday trappings with which we are familiar, but with its own unique icons, and be perfectly believable.

    I don't know that I'd agree on either end of this; I think it had some silly all along, and I think it's still got plenty of serious and epic.

    it's literally being dumbed down and made into a cute ball of sillyness.
    I can't comprehend what the word "literally" is doing here. I am fine with some silly stuff in games. Life's like that. Things are silly sometimes.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    People were complaining there are no holidays, Trion said there are constant events that cover the need for it, but people said holidays aren't like regular events, that they are special.
    Trion then said that it's really stupid and wrong, that the point of holidays is to make special events to break the routine, and they do it with world events, but people continued to ask for it.

    Trion then realized it might make them some publicity and money, so they've made a christmas holiday.

    If you have any complaints, don't direct them at Trion.
    Direct them at your "friends" who kept asking for it.

    Myself, I like everything, from world events, through holidays, and even the cuteness of my eth female's nose.

    On the Guardian side, you can't go through Silverwood and do the quests with Scotty and still think the game is all epic and serious... as for Defiants, they give the Ascended hero from the future a magic net and send him out to catch flaming squirrels...

    For me it doesn't feel overly ridiculous. A full month for it might be a bit much, but then again the currency rewards kinda demands a long timespan. Rift's always had a bit of silly to go along with the serious. I mean have you even read some of the artifact set names etc?
    The /chicken emote is a parody of a tv-show as well (Youtube video here ). As long as it's not overdone - and really, it isn't. They could have made this much, much, much worse - then it's fine really.

    Of course it does stall the main plot with the world events, which kind of sucks. So I hope it's not going to be something for each holiday/specialday thingy.
