Zenimax has issued an update regarding the Undaunted Event in Elder Scrolls Online with some bad news for those looking forward to it.

On November 14, they reported seeing server issues which adversely affected the game. They then disabled the event,

“Our top priority is making sure you can log in and play, so to that end, we have decided to turn off the Undaunted Event this afternoon. We know that the loss of this event is disappointing and frustrating, and we have begun discussing what to do in its place.”

However, on Friday, they posted an update saying the event will not be enabled throughout the weekend while they focus on implementing fixes. They apparently discovered a new issue which caused load issues in the databases,

“Just to give everyone an update, we will not be enabling any additional events this weekend while we concentrate on implementing fixes for the Activity Finder. When we dug into why the issues began yesterday, we uncovered a new problem where certain groups queuing with the Activity Finder were causing significant database load issues. The fixes we’re working on will better distribute the load and impact on the database, and they are currently with QA for testing. We really appreciate everyone’s patience while we troubleshoot these issues, and completely understand how disruptive it's been for you. Once we receive the testing results from QA, we’ll give everyone another update of our plans on Monday.”
