Thanks for the update, better no event then something half-baked. Now the devs can use the time to make the Winter events even better.

As I said in another thread on the matter:

It's disappointing to me that they didn't have the programming manpower to pull this off, considering that this company pulls in BILLIONS every year and they knew it was coming a year out. How much does it cost to employ a few more programmers?

Sorry the event didn't work out , but then again, at least 1 less useless code the players have to deal with .

Why not just repeat last years and put it in the game, that would at least be something.

I appreciate your honesty. If it wasn't ready, then you made the right decision. We have had an increase in events and shortly the Christmas event will kick off and I am looking forward to that! Keep up the great work you guys and gals are doing and don't get discouraged by the negative comments. The majority of players are behind you.

so sad!!  had 1 year to get this done and it didn't get done, nor is anything else. Is WG closing their doors or they going to wake up and get things done. Perhaps less trips to twitchcons, streams, making new tanks, making bad tanks like wheelies, and worried about shells, etc... and more work being done on the game. I know you all need to make money, but a dead game makes NO money. Please hire more people and lets get this game running right.

 

Let me guess Christmas event is canceled as well?

I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed as last year's event was a welcome addition. That said, I'd rather them be honest and not release a broken game mode.

Rumour has it they simply couldn't find the code that you need to redeem to activate it.

Jokes aside, why not do something simple in lieu of it, like a tech tree and equipment sale?

THAT TOTALLY STINKS, the halloween event is one event that older and new players can participate in without having tier 8 , 9, or 10 vehicles.   It gave good rewards and was a credit monster.  there aren't enough of these types of events, many refuse to engage in Frontline, ranked battles, or clan wars, leaving not much inn terms of events we can partake of.   Boo on wargaming!

Ya, well, missed battling the Leviathan or that crazy speed run like last year.   Just please don't screw up the Christmas giftboxes. I will be 80 in 8 days and don't want to miss any opportunities.  Include an OBJ 279  deathstar this year, At my age, reflexes are way too slow to compete and win anything. I'm A player for 7 years, 25,000 + battles And 160 tanks and not one mark of excellence yet. What's that tell you??   However I usually manage to buy 2 $100.00 giftboxes, if I can afford them at the time, and my hopes are always high.

Look on the bright side folks.  The rate of premium tank releases is unharmed and intact.  :B

 

Different development teams and all, it's a joke mod staff ;) I see three of you in here.  

 

How about as compensation no codes except for streams and the scavenger hunt?  Or alternatively just implement them globally.

 

After all misery loves company.   :hiding:

I appreciate the comments, unfortunately re-using an old event would not be as simple as plugging it back in.  Each update creates new dependencies and changes that have to be accounted for to bring something old up to date.  Doable, but a project in and of itself.

We were able to offer Frontlines, Steel Hunter, and The Great Race this year, which is a larger than usual spread of special event modes.  The Halloween mode as planned was the most ambitious yet, and the mechanics developed and lessons learned will still lead to other exciting things in WoT's future.

     How many people reading this thread still lurk on the forums but don't play in hopes that something will get them to play a game they used to really enjoy?

 

Or is it just me?:(

Will there be some form of compensation like a low or mid tier marathon or some bonds at the least?

I guess the devs were too busy working on the next set of made up tier 8 premium tanks to milk the player base for even more money, rather than working on the event.

I was waiting for the Halloween Event to start playing more regularly again after a break, guess my break just got longer.

Too many events lately anyway.  I am totally cool with this.  Maybe I can just play standard PUB games for a while....wait!  There's Ranked to worry about.....
