You're just fighting bots in this game mode and you can respawn if you die, people can't be that bad it enrages people.

 

Umm this is World Of Tanks so rageaholics will be in this game mode too...I have seen several players that get 40 or 50 green goop in their tank and don't go to the base and get killed and lose it all...So yea the ragers will be in this mode

I  Miss  Frontline mode....................... Enough with these stupid, repetitive & make you play all day to get reward game modes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enough already...Fix Match Making  and  enough of tier 8 tanks  80% of the time being bottom tier!!!  3-5-7 needs to go!!!! 

 

The reason everyone and I mean everyone liked Frontline mode  was because it was tier 8 only and the games were more fair and balanced and the rewards were impressive and  appreciated by everyone....

Very soon I will only be playing Dark Front enough to win the daily mission, and the weekly mission. If (when) I get more levels i will enjoy the bonuses, but I won't be playing for them.

No it does not.

This means that instead of grinding up a nice bonus ahead of time, you're stuck grinding out each day the day it unlocks...which means the last day you;ll be grinding 4200 matter (!), the second to last day you'll be grinding 3800, the third from the last day you have to grind 3400....

I don't know about you, but playing this game mode for 3-4 hours a day (pubs) sounds AWFUL to me.

It's basically another mode that encourages premade teams, and punishes pubs and casuals (what a surprise).

 

Also, real question here, IS THE SKIN EVEN A CAMO?? They keep calling it a 'style'. The other 'styles' you can buy are camos too, but...if its not a permanant camo then....the event is a wash and theres no real reason to go past level 9 (since the experience increments drop down to 2% per level, and the required matter increases exponentially).

Anyone who has blew gold on buying it, is the 13th day "style" a permanant camo?

 

The Halloween skin also offers a Camo bonus just like other permanent Camo.

I have noticed not sure if others have that the mt-25 variant we are using is slower than the base mediums in power to weight ratio

it seems to be needing a  engine speed or PTW increase of about 20-30 mph

anyone else agree with me on that

also a reload timer would be great as well for us

also when the anomaly spawns have it shown on the map as well so we can find it

 

those are my thoughts on the matter

 

Don't forget that you also can collect essences that could make you faster and can augment all characteristics of your tank.

Day 3, and the bot tank are already hitting u for 90% of your xp, by day 5, one shot from a bot will kill your whole team...…..lol, done with this event.

 

Getting smacked with 90% of your health was possible day one. The French zombie tanks don't go to recess so you know they don't play.

the gameplay seems like something that would be a free game that came with a new Windows install circa early 2000s...

 

check my aliens idea from a prior post for a much better Halloween mode...

  they dont care about it i have seen so many with so much always trying for the last one and get nuked costing the team that amt is sickening

 

I've seen that too. 

 

It's a new breed of troll, maybe?:sceptic:

 

Like the guy in a regular match who just spends his time bumping and pushing team tanks around - but in this case run around and collect 85 (the record I've seen so far) points and then just blow them all away....

 

Or maybe it's just greed and they think they get a bonus for turning in the most green goo?

Yea be careful on "Collecting Essences" be sure to read the pop-up when it gives you 0 out of 5 retrieved...There is one that will kill you. I had 60 of the green stuff and full health and I was right there beside it when it came on said retrieve...I didn't read it because it is the same color and looked identical...Um yea when I went into the green column of goop...I instantly died and lost the 60 goop I was caring and no there was no French zombie tanks around...

 

And also the little light zombie tanks fire ridiculously fast and are 100% accurate 2 will eat you alive in just a few shots...almost as fast as being one-shotted by the French zombie tanks

A question. If you miss a day, can you go back and complete it along with the new day's unlocked mission? Thanks.

the lights don't do very well with tracking your tank, so moving your tank back and forth is a good way to avoid getting hit.

The level cap is unlocked daily so you can skip a day and catch up if you want to.

This is by far one of the crappiest game modes that wargaming ever presented.

Feels like you are a delivery driver.

BOOOOORING!!!!!!!!

"Bonuses apply to all modes" is translated to oh, sorry it doesn't really what is it seems...

 

this + personal reserve bonuses don't count because lack of coding properly or what?

...or they could just unlock the level cap from day 1, so if you wanna get to level 13 on day one you are allowed to do so. The fact that it's not like that is lame, IMO.

The F*** gamemode encourages you to do so.

Only way to get 200+? abuse the anomolies that appear....

"faster reload the more matter you carry", oh, look theres cover, and two t28, im sure i can solo them with a gun that shoots every 2 seconds right?

 

No, because you're carrying 50, the AI decides to immediately charge you and you're dead.

 

This game mode is trash, I hate it so much that I wish wargaming didnt even have a halloween event. All this event is, is a pay2win joke, not worth the time investment.

 

I'm on level 4. If i spend 40 minutes grinding up to level 5 i'll get 4% more bonus. I'm already at 120% anyways so 4% more is actually only 3.33% more. If it takes 40 minutes to grind (overly generous assumption, 200 essence every single 8min game), I'll need to play at least 30x 40 minutes (20 hours) over the next week to get that back, and start netting ANY bonus experience. Until then I'll be in the NEGATIVE from playing a game mode that wastes my time by rewarding me NOTHING (outside of missions).

Considering that pubs are trash it's more along the lines of 25-30 hours for level FIVE to be worth it. Anything beyond isnt worth calculating, because it only gets more and more grindy, and the allowed time left gets less and less as the event nears it's end...

 

Basically, do the weekly mission if the free exp is worth it to you, then quit! Because the last 8 levels are designed for people who pay for premium accounts, and still want to pay at an even worse rate for super premium on top of premium.

Final day level requires collecting 4,200 matters

 

@ 150 matters/game (average) and about 8 minutes/game, that works out to 28 games and about 3 hours and 45 minutes of game play that day...

OMG after you get halfway the amount you have to collect is ridiculous!!!  No way I am going to waste hours and hours to finish this.  I would love to see someone do the math on how long it takes to collect all 13 stages of matter.  I am betting 40+ hours of gameplay at 150/game avg.  RIDICULOUS.  All for just a skin, get halfway and quit wasting ur time.

Wargaming makes it so mundane and grindy that it forces people who really want the bonuses to buy it instead.  Great strategy wargaming.  You had FULL creativity and you came up with this crap.
