2019? I suppose the Waffelc*ck event was initially that year's Halloween special, but they could only deliver it this year.


Actually this is the Halloween event that was supposed to be released in 2019.

So where does that put the Waffentroger hunting? Was it supposed to be this year's special event? Or was it a completely separated event, and WG hasn't actually developed a new game mode for this year's Halloween, just simply refurbished last year's?

 

The Waffelc*ck mode had kind of  Halloweenish, freaky theme I think. The music, as always in WoT, was the best part of it IMO.

Sooo, an "8-ball" tank, a Luchs, a Black Prince (ayyy), an E 50(?), some sort of mish-mash double-gunned E 100(?) hull with short side skirts and a Obj.705 turret with the E5's tumor on top, and a KV-2 sentry turret with a gun likely as big as the one on the Deathstar.

 

That's a pretty random lineup.

 

Looking a bit more closely, it seems No_5's hull is actually UFO-shaped. That might explain why it's codenamed "Immortal".

WG, please no more overly restrictive/limited curfew timings for special modes. I couldn't even play some of the special modes lately because of how restrictive the curfews were (like the Strumtiger and WTF-E100 modes). many of us play from further away from CEST time and have work/life to manage. Thank you.

Finally some1 took a closer look. It seems at least 3 of those will be almost impossible to destroy, now imagine taking them on with random teammates.. Looking forward to it, but, with this latest event balance in mind..ufff

Agree,people have jobs,people have things to do normally limiting time to play only limits a number of players that can't play it because of the curfews.

we also need to know if the bots will be dead accurate like the last wafletrager event bots

We know that they will. Why would WG downgrade their bots?

That's an excellent question, I was really close to getting one of those 3d styles but couldn't finish the missions for them in time, hope they can sell them again, they are very cool and not as outrageous as some other styles out there. I like styles that are somewhat close to what a tank would have had (historical or otherwise). Yeah ok blood on the gun and turret seems outrageous but better than fire or orange and blue lines. Seems like the visuals on them are pretty close to what they have happening this year so they could sell them and remain in the same visual style as the event, I certainly wouldn't mind spending money on them if reasonable.
