I'm finding the event an exercise in focus firing, once people grasp that it's fairly straightforward.

I do find sticking to the borders on the harder difficulties and later levels better than staying in town as it drags the Immortal out and keeps him at a manageable distance

You guys seem to be having very different experiences from me. First day played was yesterday and i think I won 2 from 6 all on Difficulty 1? Almost feels worthless without platoons.

 

I will try difficulty 2 today to see if that helps.

 

Maybe just unlucky? I haven't platooned, and all the teams I've joined haven't had platoons (didn't always bother to check) but won most games prior to level 3.

 

Just make sure someone's calling in your game, if they're not do it yourself, and follow that lead. If you work as a group it's doable. If people do their own thing, it's a loss.

From what I can tell:

 

Difficulty 1: Can win with 1 or 2 bots

Difficulty 2: Can win with 0 or 1 bots (but the humans need to be good)

Difficulty 3: Requires a team of ALL skilled humans

 

So difficulty 2 is easier to win and farm that 1.5k XP, but you still often get teams that fail at phase 3. When that happens you should have gone for difficulty 3 and lose at phase 3 for more XP. I call this the Mirny's Dilemma: By going higher tiers you get less bots but harder to win, but by going lower tiers while it is easier to win you get more bots.

You'd think players who've got to the second difficulty level would have worked it out by now

You can get to second difficulty by botting

 

Probably to third too

Not hard to be carried through the first level, if the rest are decent.

 

Check the results of a win at the first 2 levels, and there's often an 'underperformer.'

So far today, two games in a 3-man plat and five in a 4-man plat, all difficulty 2, all losses.

 

This is just my life in this [edited] game I guess.

Is it true that the event crew you get as rewards are NOT zero-skill crew???

The pictures show they have three skills you can choose however it doesn't say that the first skill is a zero skill.

Terrible players at difficulty 3 during the day too, noticed some of the same players so just getting noobs then. All died stage 2! Better this evening though.

I get that "read the fine print" bit, but crew given as rewards are almost always zero-skill crew, so this just would be one shitty aspect of a game mode that's already verging on predatory in its design.

 

I still want to know for sure though.

In ended up with 16 games, all but two platooned with at least 3 players. Every single one was a loss. Every. Single. One.

 

Someone want to [edited] explain this one to me? I don't care how terrible a player I am (and come the [edited] on, I'm not THAT bad - I stayed with the group when there was one, did damage and harvested the purple drank), this is just plain bullshit.

Getting some lucky teams in Todays event. Won two games in a row at lvl 3... Complete random occurence... One of the games i even thought was gonna be a loss at phase 2, coz the boss was always breakign in front of us and the bot spawns were more spread out around the map than SPG splash dmg in ranked battles, then with a blink of eye we were a phase 4 with still 1 minute left and already extra 100 blue stuff delivered. There was even a Goliath without turbo on my team... Maybe that has something to do with the win.

How the heck are y'all winning at level 2?

 

Every single freaking time i keep losing at phase 4. Usually turns into One V bots. (I've done 3 1VB and completely lost.)

 

I also found out that the Immortal spawns at D4/D5 at second phase, and third phase at bottom right corner of map.  Fourth phase, although i've played 7 battles in 4th phase, never bothered to check where it spawns.

 

Also browsed WoT reddit and the immortal really can't be killed. It fell into one of those holes in the map and was stuck there and didn't die from the fall. WG really made it unkillable....

Don't listen to my advice or your winrate might go below 30%.

maybe the game is trying to tell you something, thats why there are 3 levels.

Level one is steamrolling the bots. Level 2 is just the bots putting up a fight, someone makes a mistake and the whole team pays for it. Usually ends in a 1v1.

 

i expect level 3 to be steamrolled by bots.

 

Level 2 bots actually chase you and move around. They make flanking maneuvres and seem intelligent. Level one bots just sit and relocate 2 metres off every time something hits them.

I would. Instead of phase 3/4 being magnus delivery, we could fight the immortal in the WtaufE100 event style. Massive HP pool. everyone shooting at it.

 

maybe if it fell off a cliff and didn't die seems very overkill.. Maybe if it died by it's own mistake we could end the game early and get extra xp and credits as an easter egg/bonus thing... Maybe trick the bot into jumping and get bonus. That sounds okay.

I wish the WTFE100 event had been the real Halloween event. That event was so much better it's ridiculous.

You mean the fact that it was easier to win since bots can end up on either side.

 

Oh wait actually Mirny's enemies are all bots... So why are they winning most games at difficulty 3
