Looks great!

 

One question though : will the results of these matches influence the x5 missions I just bought?

Woot! Woot! Is there a time it will start on the 18th? I want to see if I can record and upload video before work or not.

Nice boosts this year, even if you don't pay you still have 5 days at max level for turbo farming or grinding annoying tank, and even before you hit the max bonus should be good enough. 

Now i just need to activate some of the 100% exp and 300% free exp boosters i have and i should be able to get enough to skip the 40TP.

What & Why the Camo style is not for owning permanently ?

 

like Gamescon camo , Footballers camo , and other camo styles. Why you can only put on tanks for like only 15 days. What's even in sense in that ?

Yes it does look great, thanks! <3

 

And to answer your question, the x5 missions only work for Random and Grand Battles, so the Halloween event isn't included. :)

The 15 days mentioned in the picture are obviously the duration of the event. The style itself will be permanent.

:facepalm:

This looks fun and interesting, good job WG :great:

 

As I always do, here's some feedback (doesn't mean that the event is bad, just for further improvement):

 

- It would have been nice if the different stages in the event could have given small amounts of gold. That way you'd allow average players that can't participate on the global map to get a little bit of gold to either use or save up. Another alternative would have been to combine these events with marathons, where we collect "parts" and then use these part to convert it into a premium tank of our own choice.

 

- I saw in the pictures that the different stages are actually giving free xp modifiers and not free xp itself. Depending on how much grind that is required in this mode (don't know yet, will have to try it first), this can be a bit bad because what use do players have of modifiers if all their gaming time is used to play the mode and there's no time to play randoms. Hopefully either the halloween mode itself gives free xp (affected by modifiers), or the grind goes fast so we can use the modifiers in random battles.

 

That's pretty much it. Looking forward to try it out tomorrow :great:

 

Also, it looks like you're testing out daily missions with this event. That's another big +1 from me. Implementing daily missions in this game would give an extra incentive to players to log in every day to complete the missions. If you do implement daily missions, please make the rewards interesting and not boring like 20k credits or a fire extinguisher. Here's some examples of rewards that you can give out for daily missions:

 

- Gold.

- Bonds.

- Free XP.

 

You could even give out different tokens:

 

- Free retrain token (free 100% training of 1 crew member).

- Free reset token (free 100% reset of 1 crew member).

- Free role change token (free role change of 1 crew member).

 

And so on. Obviously the chances for each one of these rewards to drop would be different, depending on how valuable the reward it. Please just make sure to show the reward before doing the mission, so players know if they want to do it or not. It would also be nice if you did "loyalty" bonuses, so someone that has completed daily missions for multiple days in a row gets a higher reward until the day he misses out on a mission. The daily missions could be reset at server restart each day and then a new random mission would be aviable for each player regardless if they completed it or not.

 

I think that's all, I might write some more about the event itself when I've tried it out :honoring:

And your whine about my feedback is even more boring. Pull your head out of your backside, instead of complaining that other people do actually give constructive feedback, you can write your own feedback, or if you don't have any, then gtfo and stop complaining that other people do.

 

You see WG, this is exactly the kind of people that makes this forum higly unappealing to use.

A line is forming! There are many Dark Runners queuing up to save Grim Nebelburg, so you may have to wait up to 4 minutes to get through the Portal.

 

4 min?

sad.

So the 50% more credits for example.. is that just for the halloween event results or will this be for random battles also?

I understood it is for ALL battle modes. :) 

combine that with a prem tank and some credit reserves and you got yourself a juicy credit income

*edited*  

Anyway back in the topic... the event is nice. nobody is forcing you to do anything. However there are real people working behind the computers, that have families and needs. 

I see no moneymilking, i see a fair offer.

So according to screenshot, for 5k gold I can buy what more or less amounts to a 15 days of premium account?

How is that a good offer?
