1.  75,000 silver for playing 5 matches when I could just play one in my scorp G and get more than that.

2.  XP that I have to spend gold to convert later.

3.  Boosters by level, that when you do the math really aren't worth the time spent to get them even though they stack with regular boosters.  OOOh an extra 10%!

 

I played 5 matches tonight and I doubt I'll play more.  It's just the same thing over and over.  Not nearly as interesting as last year's event.

I really enjoy it when Wargaming makes an effort to spice the game up with Halloween graphics.  Last Halloween was my first Halloween event here in WoT and I was completely blown away with the Latin voices, the cool graphics, tanks, PVE and Leviathan challenge.  Honestly, I knew that it would be very difficult to compete with the uniqueness of that event which is why this year's green matter grab is a bit lackluster comparatively.  That being said, I still like having this mode because my kids can enjoy it and it doesn't mess up my "now precious to me" stats (top clans REALLY care about those stats).  Other than that, it does get repetitive and the end rewards are fine but nothing exceptional.  I hope that the Devs decided to put more of their effort into an impending Front Lines instead of Halloween stuff.  If that's the case, then I think all who are disappointed will be more forgiving.  For the record though, I like these departures from the norm and am glad WG tries.

I enjoy these events and the rewards that come with them.

Rewards are fine BUT WarGaming really needs to get off the daily mission kick they are on and just make the missions unlock one by one.

There are players that cannot play everyday but make up for it on their days off, but when you take the end reward away from them then they say why bother playing more on my day off if I cannot get the reward. (at least this is what some of my clanmates tell me)

 

The mode itself is boring and I only played 3 games to complete the mission and that was enough.

As much as I like the bonuses, I think it's a little too much work to get the max bonus for the amount of time it lasts.  Doing math it's about 18 hours of a game mode with little return while playing it to max out the bonus.  Which by the time your done you only get for fourish days if i'm reading it right.  Math for game time 26800 needed, 150 goop per match, 179 matches needed, time per match 6 min.  So (6 x 179) / 60 = 17.9 hours.

 

Really the game mode would be better if they had some more missions to give you a some reason past the bonus.  Like kill x zombie tanks in one match, or return x amount of goop in one match.  Just something, like last year had a bunch of different missions and some rewards for them. 

 

Also needing to hit tab to get a map is annoying, don't see the reason for the change.

 

I mean the mode is interesting for a few matches, but I feel there could be a little more too it.

It is really  BAD!!!!!!!!!!

 

It is really  BORING!!!!!!!!

 

It was designed to make players spend 5,000 gold to bypass it.

 

It worked, I spent the gold that I won in tourney's.

I had an enemy tank flip upon waking up :P

I also agree that mission locking until the next day should not be a thing.
Up the requirements to get through the earlier segments, but balance that out by decreasing the amount needed to get through the later segments.

So now my tier 8 will see more battles at tier 10 because of low population. Thks for the work around that screws everybody who would rather play randoms then little kid modes.

 

Not everything is about you, get over yourself. Some of us enjoy the seasonal events and I dont care if makes you whine.

Since today every game including pubs . The game crashes and even though the game crashed it's still running in the background where I have to go into the task manager and close it out manually . Then restart the game play one  , and start the whole thing all over again . And yes this was in vanilla . And every time exiting the game into the garage .

 From another thread:

 

I see there is a daily mission for 75k silver, not a big deal but hey, it's a pretty easy 75k silver. But a weekly mission for 15k free xp… uh yeah, that's nice. If you really can complete it twice or even three times then that's pretty sweet.

Sorry to say this, but the event is just plain boring to grind. It's probaby one of the least entertaining ones so far. The fact that you have the option to just buy yourself the rewards  for gold without playing says a lot about this event.

Its not bad. I think it could use some credit generation per match... but the chance to get a 2nd premium account boost for a few days to power through some grinds is nice.

 

If this is a test for night maps... that would be cool too.

 

Its a nice diversion from randoms.

Don't see what good feedback will do since WG isn't going to fix any of the issues with a micropatch or ever bring this mode back. Except for the awful football mode, none of these special modes ever return. I will give it a shot anyway however.

 

  1. The minimap should be permanently visible in the bottom right corner, it's really annoying to get killed by a tank you couldn't know was there because there is no minimap. Sure I could have pressed tab and noticed the tank behind me but it would have prevented me from seeing where I was going.
  2. The movement speed buff is awful, the smallest buff in speed causes these tanks to become unwieldy and completely uncontrollable. A small tap of the A or D key causes the tank to spin, any small bump will cause the tank to flip or cause other strange acrobatics. It becomes impossible to avoid incoming fire by swinging around cover once you get the ice skates "buff"
  3. Friendlies dropping green matter on death should be a standard feature not a random buff you may or may not receive. Permanently losing 20+ green matter because of the aforementioned ice skates "buff" is infuriating 
  4. Levels shouldn't be locked by days
  5. I find the lack of missions related to this even disturbing.
  6. the BDRs do way too much damage, combined with the fact that they don't spawn until it is too late and their snap shoting capabilities makes them completely retarded.
  7. Dark matter collected should go towards to total regardless of the fact if it was returned to the base or not before time runs out. Half the match time is dedicated to driving back to the base.

1) Tanks are boring, no diversity. You have hundreds and hundreds of tanks in game and you settle on one of the most mediocre light tanks.
2) It's the same thing over and over and over again.
3) Green thingies that you die with disappear, come on, even dark souls got that right. They should just stay where you died and you have to fight back through the tanks to get them back.

4) Good aesthetics, nothing else. I'd recommend getting some people that know how to make PvE maps. PvP and PvE are entirely different concepts, and it's something that WG has always failed at.

5) Really? The MT-25?

6) Only three kinds of tanks to fight against with your single un-upgradable tank, that's really boring.

7) I love the garage, it reminds me of Hellboy.

 

To the people complaining about whiners, please stop, no one cares about you adding yet more whining and it derails the thread.

Yep, quite lackluster compared to last year's event. The rewards are ok I guess, really haven't seen much yet. 

The time limit isn't enough for such a big map. Essences are too randomly placed to bother seeking when matter is more important.
