In a new blog post, ZOS outlined that the Witches Festival in ESO will be extended due to server instability.

The good news is now the servers are no longer becoming overloaded, though the team acknowledges some queuing issues for Battlegrounds still exists. As a result, the Witches Festival will be extended one week on all platforms,

“Due to the recent instability of the servers, we've decided to extend the Witches Festival by one week on all platforms so everyone can still take part and enjoy the event. This means the event will now end on November 11th at 10:00am EST. All aspects of the in-game event will be available including double XP, Event Tickets, Plunder Skulls, and the collectibles.”

Additionally, all current hotfixes were implemented into the console build and are currently under certification. Therefore, if all goes well, any of the issues from the past week shouldn’t pop up after Update 24.
