So, as most of you probably know, WG looks to be re-introducing the popular Halloween event from last year for another go this season again, as evidenced by the teaser released on WoWS Asia Facebook:

 

https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2017/09/18/wows-halloween-sneak-peek/#more-57391

 

However, there were only a handful of ships in last year's event.  The upcoming event looks to have many more ships being added to the list:

Looks like the Minekaze clone from last year's event

Nassau from last year's event

Looks to be a Nikolai underneath the toxic tree limbs....

Ernst Gaede?

Cyclops-inspired Chapayev?

Bismarck or Tirpitz in serpent drag....

Lexington

This one is a bit tougher due to all the bone camo, but looks to be perhaps a Benson or Lo Yang

Any guesses?  The two front turrets are the only real identifiers here, but I'm not placing them at first glance....

The turrets give this one away as a high tier German BB right away.  But is it FDG or GK?

Looks like a Shokaku being molested by whatever that demon seed is on her back.

 

In any case, we can at least see that the new event will be spread across both low and high tiers, which will make for some interesting gameplay for those who don't like low tiers from last year.

 

Your thoughts?

Looks to be a Yugumo for the one you daid was Gaede and a Charles Martel for the one with the ram for the bridge. FDG for the German, and Tirpitz for the Bismarck/Tirpitz one.

I'd say Kagero not Yugumo just cause it's tier 8 and that seems to fit better with the rest of the boats. Maybe I am missing something though.

The Minekaze clone is Wakatake, remember that the other two were T3 as well.

 

The Nikolai is Rasputin, the main boss of the mode from last year.

 

Definitely Kagerō, superstructure gives it away plus all the rest of the new ships are T8.

 

The Bismarck with the blue poles is Tirpitz. Torpedo tubes give her away.

 

Charles Martel.

 

As the previous was Tirpitz, this is Bismarck.

 

Yes it is Shōkaku.

 

 

 

So the original three return, along with a bunch of T8 new comers. Sounds fun! :Smile_great:

Fair enough.  

 

At least this confirms that it will be a T3-T8 spread this time around, with perhaps game modes only being T3 and T8, versus everything in between.

I am going to ask a couple of questions.

What was last year Halloween Event?

And do you think it will be the same this year?

Since I was not playing the game yet.

Last year's event was the precurser to Operations today. 

 

You had an AI ship that you had to escort to the end zone while defending it from shore batteries, enemy ships, and a boss ship. All the while having secondary objectives that you tried to complete.

Okay thank you so much, so am I safe to assume the pictures are the Boss Ships?

Looks like this year's event is going to be a blast.


And maybe future operations will incorporate higher tier ships?

Most, if not all, of the new ships are T8.

 

The Tesla/Powerline BB is Tirpitz; note the torpedo launchers. The other KM BB is likely Bismarck, if not FdG.

Only the Nikolai. The name was Rasputin.

 

The tier three ships were the player selectable ones.

I think we're seeing the first "Hard Mode", actually.

NM "Saving Translyvania" is T3-- last year's event.

HM "Saving Translyvania" is T8.

HMs are already teased in Scenarios.

 

Going by the overall look for the T8/HM Version we'll use the:
Kagero (DD)
Chapyvey (CL)
Tripitz (BB)
Lexington (CV)

While the enemy gets:
Benson  (DD)
Charles Martel (CL)
Bismarck (BB)
Shokaku (CV)

Fun ships, but another Event that requires you to rely on the utter Incompetence of the player base to achieve victory.  

It was only the first couple of days that was an issue and the majority of players quickly caught on to how to play to get the best rewards.

Could it be we will get "October Revolution" for completing this event?

That would not be a bad idea...

Really enjoyed their Halloween event and their April Fools toy boats in a tub was fun too.

Looking forward to Halloween again if we see all these boats in game (skins for a short time).
