Halloween in November ? will Christmas event be held in July?

 

pretty sure wargaming central was not hit with an earthquake or other natural disaster so not having Halloween event at Halloween was simply them not giving 2 cents about the player base and would have been skipped as many other events in the past ?

 

but apparently the bean counters must have made a case that player base is tired of them canceling events and protesting now in bulk ? wasn't there supposed to be a day where all player would not log in for one reason or the other within last 20 days ?  anyway pretty sure this spooky winter festival thing was thrown together hastily because of the protest ?

Not even sure what the protest was about as there are so many reasons it bogels the mind to choose only 1 or 100 for that matter

 

any way was doing the missions because wanted the skin for E50M but low and behold they crammed the gotta pay to get a skin on same page as event to make it look like you can win the E50M skin from event ...  only skins available to choose from are tier 9 tanks I no longer play and have no desire to play.. as a side note if I have a "skin" for a tank I do not play I want it to be a bright color so it stands out easy and is easy to target instead of one that blends into the background and shadows ... ELC bright pink hello kitty skin makes killing elc lights very easy (i dont drive elc )

Well if you consider most stores seem to be starting Christmas in mid-October, WoT dates are more accurate. :)

Maybe you don't read your news updates from tanks. The mode was not ready in time, so instead they went with some in-game missions to still give out some of the prizes that would have been won via Halloween mode, whatever that was.

Check your EVENT tab.  In brilliant WG logic half the missions (the tier 9 specific ones) are under the Missions tab and half are under the Event tab.

 

The Dark Knight camo missions are under the Event tab.  That camo works on any tank afaik.  Also the missions reset daily and require 25 tokens to collect.

 

And even once you get them the missions still repeat, so you can get the individual mission rewards.

WG couldnt get the Halloween event to work this year.

Their premium tank design team was much more fortunate.

Went to our local Sam's Club and you'd have thought that Santa was there.  Found out that they had already held a pre-Black Friday sale, this past weekend that they didn't advertise about.

Reading is a beautiful skill. Also paying attention to news about events.

 

For Halloween we had an event to win decals and emblems, 4x EXP week and this 2d and 3d skins event. Beg for more? Main event were cancelled for tecnical problems. These 2d and 3d skins seems to be the prizes of the event, so we have them anyway.

 

About the month, Halloween is just the first day of Allhallowtide, All Saints' Eve (Halloween), All Saints' Day (All Hallows Day) and All Souls' Day (Dia de Muertos), 2/3 of celebration is on November anyway.

 

About the E50M skin is for pay because, more likely those tanks were the NPC to destroy, the evil, of course. Look at the prize 3d skins descriptions. You want to play the evil side, you pay it, period. 2d style mission is on event because it was part of the original event, while code is used to choose the 3d skin you want and went to missions tab.

Or whose "points" are simply regurgitated talking points heard somewhere else.
