Borderlands 3 was supposed to have a new event on the last day of 2019 to help bring in the new year and give players a new way to take on a previous challenge, but that event has since been delayed due to technical problems.
Gearbox announced the delay on Twitter on December 31st and said that the new Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite event which was supposed to feature an improved matchmaking system has now been pushed back to a later date.
Due to technical issues, today's event, which would scale the difficulty of "Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite" to number of players, is being postponed to a future date. We will share more information here when we're able. Thank you for your patience.

Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite is an event that’s been around before, but the last time it was available, it wasn’t balanced correctly according to different players.
“From Tuesday, December 31 to Monday, January 16, you can enjoy the Takedown balanced to the number of players in your party Matchmaking service will also be temporarily be updated to prioritize getting parties into Takedown quickly instead of waiting for a full party during the event. This is a great opportunity for anyone who’s wanted to try the Takedown but was reluctant due to it being scaled to a full party of four!”
The Maliwan event itself was first revealed back in November when players got to try it without the balancing based on the number of players in a group. Even though the new event will rebalance the mode accordingly, the initial post recommended that players be at least level 50 first before attempting it.
