Shaaba.5672 Posted June 26, 2019 Share Posted June 26, 2019 It's been a long time since a festival has actually felt like a festival in game. It fits the Norn pretty perfectly, so good call on that. I think what makes it feel alive is that the whole city is used. You've got the arena happening on the lake and you notice the beetles racing by. When you find the race, you notice the pinata activity. Meanwhile you keep seeing these moas running around and see their icons on the map and then have to figure out where that is happening. Above all that is the huge hologram that reminds us what this is all about and random fireworks lighting up the sky. There are even open world events that encourage people to group up and go fight holograms rather than individually fight halloween doors or open presents. (full disclosure, I LOVE the idea, don't love the implementation)It feels very immersive. I love that it uses the whole city and the events are not bunched up in a central area. You've got the arena loving crowd doing their thing and would never know about the moa jockeys having their own brand of fun on the other side. You have to discover it. And btw, the best thing about this event is by far the first-person moa riding. I've had so much fun smack talking Meep, that little pretender.So thank you. It may not be as flashy as Halloween or Wintersday (they can't all be), but this has become my favorite holiday just purely based on the feel of it.
