2 Big Chinese Holidays happening 9/22-24 & 10/1-7!
(written September 14, 2018)

To all Players

Please be aware that China has 2 big holidays happening in the next few weeks

1) Mid- Autumn Festival...  ie. Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival (3 days)
Saturday, September 22- Monday, September 24, 2018

2) National Day Holiday (Fall Golden Week) (7 days)
Monday, October 1 - Sunday, October 7, 2018

As we know from past experience ... there will be no tech support during the holidays, and they will (most likely) skip maintenance that Tuesday October 2nd of National/ Golden week.   And usually after a week.. the servers start to bog down...

So please be prepared for a some inconveniences!!


Mid-Autumn Festival

Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival, celebrated in China and other East Asian countries, such as Vietnam and Singapore. It’s always in September or October, on month 8 day 15 of the Chinese lunar calendar. 

  • In 2018, it’s September 24th (Monday). China’s public holiday is September 22 to 24.

Also called the Moon Festival or MooncakeFestival, it is celebrated when the moon is believed to be the biggest and fullest, and mooncake is the main most characteristic festival food.  
Mid-Autumn Festival is the second most important festival in China after Chinese new Year.  To the Chinese, the festival means family reunion and harmony. It is celebrated when the moon is full, and Chinese people believe a full moon is a symbol of reunion, harmony, and happiness.


Chinese National Day

Chinese National Day is celebrated on October 1st every year to commemorate the founding of People’s Republic of China. On that day, lots of large-scaled activities are held nationwide. Besides, the 7-day holiday from Oct. 1st to 7th is called "Golden Week”, during which more and more Chinese people go traveling around the country.
