Pros:

 

- Wargaming is selling a cool 3D skin instead of a new premium tank

- a mission marathon for a camo

 

Cons:

 

- in order to do 130 000 damage in two weeks, you have to play at higher tiers. That means fighting against overpowered Russian and Reward tanks for two weeks straight.

FTFY

These are parallel xp and damage missions, but only the damage ones have appeared in the Missions tab so far?

Because...

You redeemed code for them.

And the first ones are standard and will be seen in time...

O'K it's only my opinion, but I think, I'm right.

The scariest thing this Halloween is the WG game center. I'm helping a friend with his referral account and I've gotten 3 (4th crash during writing this post) game crashes in 1 hour. It's so fun to re-log in the game and have to re-log in the game center as well when the game crashes. This is without mods, and my game has been re-installed once, as was suggested by customer support and it still crashes.

I'd appreciate the 1 day premium as a mission reward if I could play a stable game. I have a billion camos, so I don't care about those too much, universal camos are nice but not ones for specific tank

 

As far as I know, WGC only updates the game, and does not interfere with it, when the game is running. Although I would still recommend you writing a support ticket with necessary logs included

My compliments on the artwork! 

 

It has to be said though: only tier 9's? New players are having a pretty rough time already, why exclude* them in specials like this?

 

A few styles for tier 5 or 6 tanks with with somewhat toned down dmg requirements should have been doable right?

 

 

* Technically I'm free to participate. But i own a couple T7's, no T8's, let alone T9's. So imo I cant meaningfully participate.

 

 

 

Before this event, we almost only had 3D skins  for Tier X vehicles, and if I recall correctly, this has been done based on the feedback left on previous 3D skins.

And is it instead of Halloween? Very difficult!

 

After the Halloween mode cancellation, we decided that we still wanted to have something to cherish the spooky season.

This is not bad. I dont care about the looks of tanks, my or other, but a lot of ppl do and it is nice to make money out of it then out of mega OP prems..

And the missions are not super hard, I mean ok, 130k dmg is a lot, but in 10 days.. Ranked included..

Just to clarify the Touch of Evilmission (Get 10,000 battle experience in any amount of battles); since it doesnt specify base xp, I assume its overall combat xp (incl boosters & premium time boost)?

Yes it includes boosters and co.

Thank goodness! There is hope yet!

I don't have much time to play, so any boost to progress is great news to me.

The damage missions still seem out of reach though. But it's not like I have any tier 9 to apply the 3D skins to anyway.

The 3d style would be put in your depot and can be applied to the tank once you get it.

Yes, but considering how little time I play and the fact that the 3D styles are only for tanks in nations that I don't play, that's basically never going to happen. I play mostly German and Swedish tanks. I have been nibbling at the Japanese and British tech trees a bit too, but I'm nowhere near getting the Centurion within the next few years. Hell, I'll probably never reach tier 10 in the German tree, which is my most played tree.

I'm pretty sure those were intended rewards for Halloween mode because they mentioned that they hired Ito Masahiro in one of their dev diaries video.

Pay2win? What? You mean pay2buy?

But shame that it's not the ultimate reward. They should just add another round to the missions and give us the ability to earn this style and at the same time put all of them in the premium shop so people can buy them if they can't bother with the missions.

 

 

Except M103, all those tanks are keepers for many players and all of them are better tier for tier than tier 10 counterparts (IMO). Tier 10 is crapshow and no place to have fun - you play it competitively, in ranked or to do campaign missions. Tier 8 on the other hand - frontline and credit making.

So too much tier 10 is no good for you (toxicity, gold spam, overall bullcrap) and everybody plays a lot of tier 8 (frontline and premiums). Which leaves tier 9 as the best tier to have fun and satisfactory gameplay - balance is decent, there are many good vehicles, etc. It's easy to see why they picked tier 9.

Not sure about that, before the changing the mm tier 9 was in a sweet spot, was almost all the time those 3 in 3-5-7, now it is quite often more in tier X vehicles which means, camping, gold spam, toxicity, i don't want to be part of that so i quit playing high tiers and went to mid-tier battles and i am enjoying, having a blast

Well, good heavens above, a nice set of rewards done in a simple but effective way! Well done Wargaming :D

 

I like that the Touch of Evil mission includes XP generated from boosters etc, as it means I can play my VK 30.02 M (Top of the Tree and all that!) and make use of the daily x5 for that mission. Regarding the 3D style missions, 130k damage in 10 days is a push for me due to time available to play, but its not impossible, and I'm close to unlocking the T-54 so there's an added incentive!

Yep the 10k XP mission includes multipliers.

 

Good luck with getting the T-54 Style :honoring:

Then why is my game 50% consistently crashing right after I close the game center?

I'm sure that it's unable to monitor my actions due to VPN and just goes "red alert" haywire and shuts off my wot.

 

I will try to reinstall this weekend, after the previous reinstall it looked like it didn't fix anything the first day but then it became better, now after the migration to WGC it looks like I'm not one of the chosen ones which can play wot in peace.
