I don't think they are going to stop adding them any time soon. So uh, you have my condolences.

I love these events, I'm going to sink a ton of hours into this. I think I gained about 35 levels during the Halloween event & 45-48 loot boxes. Going to try to top that for this event.

Yea, Jeff makes a mistake and then corrects himself later.

Also for those worried about achievements, I believe Jeff says you can queue as a 6 man and you will get in a game as the 5 Meis and the Winston.

That would be nice it kinda reminds me of infection sorta, or more like those asymmetrical multiplayer games that are popular now

Yeah, looks like if it has chievos it'll be easy to boost.

These timed events, do they unlock when the season comes around again? i ask because i got the alert that winter wonderlands unobtainables were removed.

The only reason they aren't marked as timed achievements is because initially Blizz didn't guarantee it was going to be the same exact thing every year. So they are marked as discontinued whenever the holiday ends, just in case. Between Lucioball (which didn't have achievements initially), Halloween, and Christmas, so far the past events have been repeats (with additions), and the achievements of the previous year have been obtainable.

NP. Essentially if you're the type of person who will get upset if you miss them, it's safer to do them while you can. Even though the event will likely return.

it one of the reasons i haven't picked it up because the time there were 16 discontinued and not that it matters to me because i know im never going to have a super high completion % but i didn't want to pick up a game that already has a ton but if they have been coming back i might pick this up now.
