Congrats! The grind couldn't have been easy no?

I was not interested in this year's Halloween mode so I decided to give this one a miss.

Not really, and I don't even really have time to play, but it was quick (less than 20h? total).

Now I will play other games :Smile_popcorn:

Congrats!

I'm only about 30k short from getting it.

Are you gonna get more of that camo? I believe the armory says the camo can be purchased multiple times.

Only one available per account. I think WG don't want players to just farm them indefinitely. The T8 camo is also 1 per account.

WG's word is always somewhat vague. It can also mean you can buy that camo if you already have it from last year.

I still remember the Black Friday's mission from last year.....

Congrats!

Due to the fact that nothing but Battle Points are earned in this year's Halloween event (I cannot even earn Daily containers from Key Battles) I haven't participated much yet.

Though maybe later this month I may try the mode more and earn some freebies. Perhaps.

The rewards are very limited but it's not why I enjoy the game mode, so there's that.

Ya know, making an Operation out of this (but it's not like WG even make Ops anymore, which is infuriating), simulating the German raiders in WW2 - lone ships, sinking any hostile merchantmen they can find, and even fighting their escorts...

Keep most of the features and mechanics, but no "level ups", replacing monsters with AI merchant ships and armed escorts, and if a player can't go back to base (the Portal) in time, they will be found by the Allies and they will end up like Yamato during Ten-Go.

Congratz.

Only played 2 key battles at the moment. :Smile_hiding:

I hope I can play more this week.

 

As for the infernal camo, I think WG should give 3 / 4 instead of 1.

It would keep players playing Key battle for a bit longer.

If players got their goal of 1 infernal camo (both T8 and T9), then what will motivate the players to continue playing key battle? (Assuming they also have already grinded the captains as well.)

It's no different with asymmetric battle. Plenty of players early in the week, then no more players in the latter part of the week once they have reached their goals.

Agree. The T8 camo could at least be available at 3 per account. The T9 is only 1 per account, fine, but only 1 T8?

I still find the price hard to swallow.

If WG limits each player to only get one of each camo, why should the prices be raised?

WG want players to play the game mode as long as possible. (Possibly even as toxic as possible too.)

If the price is too high, then few players will play the game mode as the goal post is to far to reach.
If the price is too low, then many players will play the game mode, but will not play the game mode further after the reward has been bought / collected. Since there is no more rewards to grind / collect.

 

Asymmetric battle had that small issue.

Where as players played the game mode during it's early release, but later on (3rd week onward) players lost interest in the game mode, and co-op bots occupy most of the missing roster.

1. No rewards.
2. No different than Random battles.

So players lost interest in the game mode quickly.

 

Unlike space battle 2019, 1 week space battle (like random battle), 1 week respawn mode, 2 weeks torpedo beat (with updated epicenter mechanic)

That mode kept players playing. Even in odd hours, you can still complete a full roster of players with little waiting time.

I've got it today. Now I just need to grind the ship to put it on, preferably Alsace.

However a lot of players have maxed their ships. Most Valkyrie players use mortar main gun, while Gale players use the flying torps.

I really feel interested in this idea!

A gigantic map is needed, and perhaps some islands can be added to make gaming more interseting.

Players, enemies and the exit portal (considering the background story, it would be better to keep the rendezvous point on the edge of the map like Killer Whale) should be spawned randomly, and perhaps the battle begins with unescorted merchant ships, then convoys with minimal escort (for example, Clemson, Omaha, Bourrasque etc.), then over time not only more powerful escorts will appear (New Mexico, Iron Duke, Devonshire etc.), on very late stages perhaps there can spawn Allied Search and Destroy squadrons consist of modern warships and even captial ships. Though it should be unnecessary to fight these ships had a player managed to reach some certain threshold (like caused damage or sink number of merchant ships).

Congrats mate!!!!

I really wanted to but I just really dislike the game mode. And I LOVE perma camos I can plast on whatever ship I want. The xmas ones I dislike so much I still have them sitting there so I wanted to get the T8 one at least. But...

I don't find it fun, the ships handle poorly and it's highly repetitive.

I just... ... sighhhhhhhhhh

Mission chains to get gear are just damage, why even have the mission chain then? It's just underwhelming and meh...

I loved the art style though, they didn't do much with it.

The captains could have had unique voices but I couldn't get any hint this was the case either.

And I love cosmetics (including captains with unique voices) to throw money at... Sadly not this Halloween.

Anyways I think I've successfully ranted this into a tangent...
