I am not sure if this should be posted here (or in chat), but I do miss the days of when QA had major events for big game releases. In my opinion, these events created enormous amounts of traffic and activity on QA.

How does an event start and can we have another one soon?

    I would love another event, but I don't think it's going to happen. If it does, I'd prefer one that's not Destiny. :P – Frank Sep 4 '14 at 19:38
  • It doesn't have to be Destiny :P edited I just miss the days of having events on here! – Zero Sep 4 '14 at 19:39

    Those events weren't exactly cheap, both in prizes and SE manpower. I wasn't surprised when SE stopped doing them. But I'd guess that they'll be back occasionally on a smaller scale, I think you could make a case for doing that e.g. for a Skyrim successor. – Mad Scientist Sep 4 '14 at 19:42

  • Ah. Thanks. That seems like an...odd choice of letters. Presumably there's a historical reason. – Flyto Sep 5 '14 at 13:41

    @SimonW Question and Answer site, not all that odd of a letterchoice. – Arperum Sep 10 '14 at 13:11

Word from on high was that the events themselves didn't increase traffic enough to justify their expense.

So due to high level of effort and low return, you're unlikely to see anything like these events again anytime soon.
