Expected to launch this week, the game’s first live event – a hit job on mercenary Damais the Indifferent – was delayed and subsequently aborted when the target, apparently true to his name, didn’t even show up. I don’t blame him. I’m kind of notorious, you know.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s live events “will allow more opportunities to face challenging battles and earn Epic and Legendary rewards” for players at level 30 and up, introducing a new mission each week. Except this week. Citing otherwise unspecified “technical difficulties”, Ubisoft confirmed that the feature’s debut would instead be postponed until next week when Damais will presumably be made to say sorry for being such a coward and take what’s coming to him. Spoilers, it’s a knife in the back. Which isn’t cowardly, okay, it’s tactical.
PSA: This week’s live event was canceled – apologies for the inconvenience.
Rumor has it that Damais bailed at the very last minute. Apparently, he was intimidated by the idea of facing the misthios. He’ll give you a fair fight as soon as we track him down. ⚔️ pic.twitter.com/8NkluGgPkw

In the meantime, though, that’s more time to hang out with Alkibiades, so. What? No, you didn’t hear a goat. Stop making stuff up.
