Reception

Upon BLOXTober's release people we thrilled from how big it seemed with 13 new gifts and what seemed to be a massive event. On September 28, the event was found on "Games" profile giving the title "Hallows Eve 2014: The Witching Hour Returns" with mixed reception. People said it will be bad because of it being a follow up to "Halloween 2013: The Witching Hour" which at the time was panned for it's complexed map and quests. Other people thought the admins learnt their mistakes.

By the time the Gifts ended, people gave them "generally positive" reception offering nice looking gifts, a good looking Sinister item and people loved Ghostdeeri. Despite the positive reception people called some items like "Vlad The Impaler IX" a down grade from its previous year.

When Hallows Eve 2014 released it got "mixed" reception calling it "the size of a sponsor event" and "a sponsor that was shoved in the event poorly". On the bright side, people did like the prizes.

Ovetime "Hallows Eve 2014: The Witching Hour Returns" has been given praise as it has been seen as a better Hallows Eve event.

Trivia

  • The "Hallows Eve 2014: The Witching Hour" game had maps based on Apocalypse Rising and Work at a Pizza Place.
  • The Prize "Lord Umberhallow The Extinguished" is based off a package on the catalog called "Lord Umberhallow"
  • The Vlad in "Hallows Eve 2014: The Witching Hour Returns" uses a Vlad item from the previous year in 2013 despite the prize, "King of Vlads" including "Vlad The Impaler IX" which was the latest Vlad released days before the event started. 
    • This was most likely because, while "King of Vlad's" was created after the 2014 Vlad released, the badge to Vlad was finalised on October 1, 2014, while the 2014 Vlad, "Vlad the Impaler, IX" was released on October 9, 2014.
  • BLOXTober 2014 had the return of "Epic Face" which was a very high demand and popular face at the time. The face was given a vampire design with original owners giving it negative reception for giving away such an iconic face on the website for a cheap price.
  • To promote the event, the package "Lord Umberhallow" was put back on sale on the catalog throughout October, but was put back off sale after Halloween
  • For an unknown reason, the thumbnail and all the badge images were added on September 30, weeks before the event even released
  • In Hallows Eve 2014, some of the maps are based off some of the most popular Roblox games at the time including, Apocalypse Rising and Work at a Pizza Place
    • Another map used to get the Macho Taco was based off Crossroads
  • Along with Halloween 2013: The Witching Hour, this is the only event that has exclusive gears other than the Egg Hunt series
  • There exists a t-shirt from the game creator "Games" for Hallows Eve 2014 that was used on everyones avatar in-game
