Is it my imagination,  or is it harder THIS year?

It was really hard last year as well, I've only won once (last year, out of dozens of battles). I'm generally pretty good at co-op operations too.

It's a bit tougher but the main strategy from last year still works out.

Yah and England is still the biggest pain in the rear enemy.

Thanks.

It looks like destroyer has zero fire chance.

And the lack of speed boost doesn't hamper her play at all.

But, trying for citadels seems harder too.

In 5 matches 4 defeats and 1 4 star.

Still as much gun as last year.

Kudos.

Ya, mine is not working either.

Edit: Now it works but don't know what I did to make it work.

Niko,

The Halloween event is great but the awarded XP in case of defeat is very, very low.

Please tell the developers to increase the XP in case of a defeat (mission failed). It feels bad getting 300 XP average after doing a nice amount of damage and sinking several enemy ships.

Thanks.

 

Example: JACKAL - Game time 12:07 minutes - 131.176 damage - 6 ships sunk - 5 catapults suppressed = 338 XP with mission failure.

What will you do with the additional XP?  Unless you're dropping doubloons to convert it to Free XP, it's just gonna sit there anyway.  Heck, it'd be fine with me if there were no XP rewards at all.  Give out some flags or something.

My time is precious, every little bit of XP I get I use it (doubloons or not) to get new ships.

Extra awards like flags would be nice too..:)

My time is also precious.  Sounds like your patience is a bit more expensive than mine, tho. ;)  But seriously, I'm assuming that the XP awards are in line with other operations - somewhat better than vanilla PvE, but nowhere near as good as PvP.  Sure, it'd be nice to bump the reward rate a bit, but I won't hold my breath.

Halloween is worst than vanilla PvE, that is why I dont understand the reasoning behind it.

Basically, after we get the 5 stars rewards there is no point anymore of enjoying the mode. In my case, I was fortunate enough to get the 5 stars during my first try (even without selecting any skill for my captain) and right now nothing else justifies my time doing it.

I think that the mode is nice and deserves more from the players than just do it a few times. I do not believe that the time and effort put in it by developers should be rewarded with low interest from the players.

You guys really need to scramble out a repeatable mission for this thing. A camo per win, 1000 captain xp per win, something. Last year you could use it to get some extra camo's (been using them sparingly as I need to) for grinding ships and all, but without that yeah, once you manage a 5 star game (I haven't yet) there's no point other than lol's and the fact it should be, like Dunkirk, making the commander XP elite commander XP but the rewards by comparison even for a win seem low. And this is actually harder.

Pretty much loss of credits and time since this. Teams has not learned yet how to play and my clans situation is what it is. Igor has downgraded a lot? Was not like that a year ago. Igor is not anymore fun. Hopely it evolves - not fun now.

Can I get Rasputins Camo for my Nikolai? ;)

Yes you can. Check the exterior tab.

 

@SuperNikoPower  I just finished a 5-star run on the halloween mode, in a 4 man division.  Afterwards we all of us were sent back to the port screen with no after battle report, no record of the battle, and no credit for getting 5-starts.

Overall its a fun mission. However, it's a bit strange and annoying that enemy BB's spawn so close. I've had a few matches where BB's spawn about 2km from me (especially if our team takes the northern route) and instantly set me on fire with secondaries or do serious damage with their main guns before I can react.

Played the game last year and earned the ghostbuster achievement.  My disappointment Is that I can not earn a ghostbuster for this year to show that I competed for 2 years.  Thanks

Yep, played 3 lost 3.  Top score in 2 of them, that's enough Halloween for me this time round.  You need a div or clan of decent players to win this one; the average potatoism is highly amplified in a mode such as this.

My feedback, it is a lot like last year. If you have a team that works together it is not to hard. Sadly most teams refuse to work together and end up throwing the game away.
