Oh God. Valve finally ended up putting out their Dota 2 Halloween even today.
Turns out they were working on a major update to the game, and intended to release the Halloween event with it. Well, they suck at planning, and realized that the Halloween event was delaying them horribly, so they canceled it and worked instead on getting the major update out the door in a reasonable amount of time.
The internet was not pleased.
I've never seen such an entitled group of neckbeards before. /r/Dota2 was screaming, people were bombing the Metacritic score for Dota 2, etc.
Valve ended up caving, and reincluded the Halloween update with the major update. Both just launched today.
The irony? The servers have been down for 2+ hours now since the update (when there's normally no downtime). This is hilarious.
