Howdy Tankers,

 

I keep getting notices from Blitz (the game Wargaming RU ruined) about their Halloween events with themes, tanks, etc. and am wondering if/when we are getting something this year.  I really look forward to this time of year but I haven't seen any announcements or heard any news.  Which, to be honest, I take as a bad sign.  Maybe I missed it.


Could someone fill me in?

 

Thanks

Other than the current Trick or Treat even that runs though Halloween that seems to be it.

Unless they pull something out of their hat. :P

 

Just checked EU.

Blue highlights by me.

While waiting for our brand-new Halloween mode, we've got to ask this question: who's stronger—the living-dead tanks of the Revenantsor the spooky vehicles of the Possessed? Let's find out, as from October 18 at 08:00 CEST through October 26 at 08:00 CEST (UTC+2), these two scary factions will fight for domination and great rewards. Join them in their quest and win some goodies! This time, you have three opportunities to do so: complete the missions below, make your faction win and get more stuff with our streams!

OK a bit more digging.  No clue where they're at on any of this folks.

Tank Festival 2019 - see link

 

Halloween

 

This year, World of Tanks celebrates Halloween once again! Get ready to try out the new exciting PvE mode where you will fight evil in a sinister location that changes throughout the course of the battle.

This time, the A.I. ​opponents are smarter and more complex. Bots have several roles on the battlefield, show individual behaviors, and react differently to your appearance. Some enemies constantly haunt you if you approach them; others, on the contrary, try to run away from your tank, luring you deep into the sinister location. You also face a particularly powerful Archenemy — unspeakably evil and impressive.

Ito Masahiro, the art director of the first three Silent Hill games, participated in the development of this year's Halloween mode. This guarantees the atmosphere and visuals of the event are better than ever!

Eekeeboo from the EU server said they are having issues with the Halloween event, he didn’t give the ETA for it.

Not much of an event if nobody knows about it.

PVE mode supposed to be coming but doesn't say when, only a week and a half left in October..... sigh where's it at WG? :facepalm:

methinks they spent too long messing around with Tank Festival and didn't finish working on Halloween mode in time :/

WoW's treats their players better than this.  They already have a halloween event that is going through the middle or so of November.

Thanks to everyone so far on the information you've posted.  That helps to know that something might come our way soon.  I love these events!

Forgot about this in the "coming soon" until Lobster reminded me.  The article he links folks, if you mouse hover over Halloween you get this as well.

So the analogy I am getting from this is we need our World War I flying ace to return all the rocks we are getting back to WGNA?

Is that the correct interpretation ?

They will announce this has all be a trick on us, and for not storming HQ we get a treat.

What ever they had put together for the actual event that never happened.

And suddenly all will be forgiven in the kingdom and the March to Turkey day, and Black Friday begin.

 

Just my guess :)

I just hope the delay on this event doesn't push back the other holiday events coming up...I wasn't happy with Warships last year when they ran their Halloween mode all the way up to Dec. 19th, and here in Tanks we were already into the Advent calendar.
