So, Halloween is my most favorite holiday of the year.

The atmosphere, the chills and thrills.  The treat of masquerading and gathering with friends over festivities has always been a favorite.

Since the Leviathan event I feel that World of Tanks peeked for Halloween events.

I understand that there is trouble in World of Tanks town and so I feel childish asking for a decent Halloween event when they are 

going through rough times.

But it is exactly times like this when having an event that everyone comes together over and puts aside there real world troubles for just a minute is so important.

Still I hope and dream that we get a wonderfully frightening and atmospheric event like we have enjoyed in the past.

thank you for your time.

take care,

be safe.

I have not celebrated Halloween since I was 10 years old. 

 

I actually enjoyed the Halloween mode where you drove around picking up the yellow balls of energy and dodging and killing possessed tanks.  I thought it was kinda fun.

 

I enjoyed Leviathan too and the two gun version was fun.

 

Last year the WAFFLE event was HORRIBLE!!!!!  It was VERY hard for the T55's to kill the WAFFLE.  Sure, if the team was good it was easy, but if only one T55 was bad you had little chance to win.  I didn't lose often as the WAFFLE, like 80% wins, but it was more like 20% as a T55 so that made the event one of the worst that I can recall.

Tru-Dat.

 

The rewards for past events were very good.  Do you remember 5 DOT or 5 BIT or something where you got HUGE crew training?

 

I am not paying for a battle pass anymore since I have all the bounty stuff and don't need multiples. 

 

I might spend $100 for loot boxes during Holiday Ops, but that is all I have spent for the entire year for the last several years and that is not a lot consider X-BOX games are pretty expensive and I have gotten over $200 in stuff so it has been worth it.

I was told there was an event where you played tanks in an old atari-like game and all xp was free xp.  You could easily make 50,000 FXP in one setting.

 

Also, that there was a great train robbery where you could pull in 1000+ bonds and 5 miliion credits/day of gaming for a week or 2. (yes, per day)

 

Both above simply by playing. No purchase needed. 

 

I do know you used to be able to play good for a month and get a free tank. Tier 6/7 or 8 Premium.

Well when I worked in retail, we didn't get ANY holidays off, except one (Christmas).

 

Other than that, the best we could hope for was holiday pay (+50%). There was only a handful of days each year that gave holiday pay.

 

I don't see any reason to belittle others' favorite holidays. (BTW, where I live "holiday" doesn't mean a day off work. It simply means a traditional celebration, not necessarily restricted to one day. Many consider all of October to be Halloween, and all of December to be Christmas. It would not be unheard of to have a "holiday celebration" at work.)

I remember this event, that free Xp thing is not accurate. You could earn 10k credits and 1500 Xp and crew XP per game IF you met the minimum damage requirements in a game. Not bad for a new player as I was at the time. I used it to get 6th sense on several comanders.

 

Die before doing the minimum OR if either team capped before you finished and you got nothing. Was an interesting mode, people raging against capping and trolls ending games early by capping to screw everyone. Was a fun mode, but a bit repetitive.

I really liked the Dark Runners event from many moons ago.

At least in that one, the end result didn't necessarily require much teamwork. It really only took 2 players, knowing what they were doing, to make a successful game. And, at times, even a single player could have a phenomenal match.

Yeah the one with the green slime was neat where you charged around picking up the slime and depositing them back at base and fighting and killing the  bots.
