Are we going to have a Halloween event this year, I expect something big this year for compensation of last year (no Halloween event).

29 days for Tank Rewards, so I'm expecting 3800 points requirement for the tier V prize. Or whatever, make it an even 4000 :trollface:

A: 

From the monthly rundown post

 October 31 through November 03: Trick or Treat? Or rather, fight or retreat? Of course, the latter is not an option, because the last special of the month will have you go on the offensive to earn rewards. So, lead the charge, don’t take no for an answer, and get those large candy bars, or at least a large repair kit and more!

I beg you, simplify the tasks of the TankRewards mode, otherwise it is absolutely impossible to play with such conditions!

Still no discount on equipment. So, still no chance to experience with equipment in the higher tiers because this is too expensive. And still no use at all to grind and buy new higher tier (tech tree) tanks because the needed equipment is too expensive. My garage and my plans for this year are coming to a complete stand still like this and i am already developing a different end game because of that. One that requires less higher tier tanks, less expensive equipment and less need to spent money on the game.

 

For me the choice is not that hard, i can rebuy one of my old premium/reward tiers 5 and 6, equip and crew them for the price of just the equipment of a tier 8.....and those premiums nett far more credits and xp on top of that.


Equipment 2.0 still working as intented?

WG, have you listened to the outcries of your players and at least made TankRewards a bit more doable for players without tier IX and X tanks, who arguably benefit from this special most? Or have you callously tightened the screws to squeeze them even more?

I expect the first equipment discount right after the crew 2.0 rework so you’ll be forced to choose between sorting out your equipment or spending millions sorting out your “optimised” crew. Or spend gold on your crew...

You are taking this out of context. I can buy and equip a number of tier 8 to 10 tech tree tanks. A tier 8 will cost around 5 million including upgrading, equipment and crew retraining. In the tier 8-10 tech tree tanks i owned and played i made on average not more than in a tier 6 tech tree tank. I can rebuy, equip and crew my premium Cromwell B for appr. 1,4 million credits and that one will generate guaranteed on average more credits than one of my tier 8 tech tree tanks. On top of that i find tier 6 gameplay compared to tier 8 and up just as much fun. So my question was why would i grind more tech tree tanks if i can do better with what i already own, like and just have to rebuy? Due to the price of > tier 7 equipment i find that not very attractive anymore.

 

Oc my Bourrasque netts far more per game but that was not my point.

As Eekeeboo said, the Halloween event should come right after the 3rd Stage of Steel Hunter and our team has been working hard on it! What do you expect will happen?

Let's wait and see for the full Tank Rewards announcement, but starting with those tanks! Which one will you get?

We'll get to discover the next Tank Rewards announcement soon. 

As for the Equipment discounts and Crew 2.0, we have no updates on both of these topics now, but you'll get notified in advance and you'll get to test them just like any other big change that happened recently.
