World of Warcraft brings round the Hallow’s End event once more

Look at all your different colored hats!

Sandwiches that I made for you!

What’s the true meaning of Halloween? In World of Warcraftthe true meaning is hats. Yes, hats. There’s the hat you can get from the Horseman riding around in Hallow’s End. There are hats you can get in Val’sharah. There’s the mount that you can maybe get from the aforementioned Headless Horseman, and as we all know, a mount is just like a hat you wear beneath you. The point is that there are many hats, and the event is live on all versions of the game. Hats.

One of the hats being worn in WoW Classic is the controversial hat, however, as The Burning Crusade version of the event is allowing players to take the world buffs from defending against the Horseman or eating candy into the game’s raids without a problem. Since the general stance of TBC development has been against world buffs, this is a departure and possibly an oversight. Or maybe this is the exception to the rule because the effects aren’t huge. It remains to be seen.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial company in the MMO and gaming space owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In the summer of 2021, the company was sued by the state of California for fostering a work environment riddled with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which has further compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. As of fall 2021, multiple state and federal agencies are currently investigating the company.
