I do not appreciate that

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. Guess which one I am.

I liked this mode, it was pretty chill and had some fun at the start platting with a few other guys to take out the Heavy Tank bots. The bots were pretty tough fighters, particularly the light tanks, and frankly better players that a lot of humans you come up against

 

I only went as high as level 9, which was easy to achieve and gave excellent boosters. At one time I had the Halloween cred booster, Clan cred booster, Twitch Cred booster and personal reserve booster and was making 200k + profit on a good game, 60 k profit and a poor game.

 

Pretty generous from WG, now have 25 million banked.

 

The mode itself was a little repetitive, but fun enough, and proof that bots work in this game. 5 man platoons doing missions against bots might be a decent option for WG in the future

On next week's news, WoWS team will be assigned to work on WoT's next Halloween Special.

 

Actually just replace all of WoTs design and dev staff with WoWSs.

Nah, this isn't Battlefield where you can shoot down choppers with a tank, although that was pretty funny.

WG can change that, dont sound really hard to me. Those fancy dushka on russian tanks are good enough for it.

1 word: boring

I liked it. Lots of rewards. Issue of player bots needs addressing though. For them to get the same payment as me while never moving is wrong.

 

Fun, stress free mode. Now bring back Frontlines :)

It got boring pretty quickly.

 

For me the lure was all the 40k free XP for getting 10k green goo. Took about 50 games i suppose, I platooned maybe 50% of the time.

 

It was a lot less painful than grinding 40k in not stock T8 tanks.

 

Boosters were a nice bonus but I would not have gone very far on that basis alone, I've got over a thousand personal reserves to use.

I can't believe how much I've managed to cut mine down by (roughly 100 regular XP, and 50 crew XP - credits and Free XP Boosters I tend to use immediately). I use them very aggressively though, pretty much popping them every time I play. I'm finally at the point with crew boosters where I'm like "Okay, do I actually want to stop now and conserve some of these?"

2018 Halloween mode may be IMO one of the least enjoyable/exciting to play yet.

 

the only new-ish mechanic they had was the AI bots, which wasn't really new or well done either.

 

 

let's look at some past examples of game modes/special events were WG actually tested out new things and had fun doing it:

 

  • 2017 Halloween: multi-turret tanks, AI "boss" Leviathan enemy
  • WW1 Convoy: wheeled-vehicles, AI Mark I
  • April's  Fool Moon mode: moon physics!
  • Tank football (2014: only 1 tank type, 2016: some improvements, 2018: 3 tank type/roles)
  • 8-bit:  Karl & Winter Showdown
  • Chaffee race: Nuff said

Owned Tier 10s: Obj 907, IS-7, Obj 140, M60, M48A5 Patton, STB-1, WZ-111 5A, 113, Centurion Action X, Super Conqueror, Badger

The event was specifically designed to generate gold spending . Your enjoyment had nothing to do with this event .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

This might be WG's 1st event that's a 'flop', is it?

Nope, most of my clan liked it, some got stale with it though.
