Hallow's Eve 2017 received "generally positive" reception for it's great use of smooth terrain and simple quests. People criticized the event for the maze in the haunted mansion and a bug with the Headless Horseman quest.
People also criticized it for the removal for BLOXTober Gifts. Despite the removal, Vlad The Impaler XII and Sinister. E were released on the catalog without their gifts. A small flaw people called out was the NERF sponsorship again, giving lacking looking prizes.
