 I've tried 10 times and it gets worse each time.

 

I tried with a division and that didn't help. 

 

I tried coaching people to follow the tips to success and they sail away from the ship!

 

This is not fun. The rewards are out of reach because I'm restricted by the team I have to work with.

 

I can't win if you make it prohibitively difficult unless you are a working with 6 other people in a division.

BB = focus catapults first, also stay in front of transylvania

CL = focus zikasas first

DD = focus zikasas first, provide chain smoke for transylvania when rasputin arrives

People are stupid. The same idiots as last year are playing it and dragging the rest of us down.

 

Try to div with a few competent people, it gets much easier.

Hi, 

 

I'm fairly new to the game but have played the new Halloween mission 15 times already..  I've won 5 times each with 4 star rating. 

I like going as the BB since I can one-shot the catapults with AP fire. 

To win at this mission there has to be really good teamwork.. some of the games Ive played.. people go lone wolf and end up screwing us over.. 

If you'd like to play in-game sometime.. add me and let's do a round together :)

I was really lucky and got into a random team that got the 5-stars on my first try...    I have no idea how we did it...

Sadly. People who play this game, generally don't come to the forums. So they won't see your tips. 

 

They ignore advice in game also. 

 

You can't carry 6 people. Period.

Add me. I should be on later this afternoon and evening (I'm in CST), and can play any of those 3 classes effectively.

 

Suspect, like me, you're after the 5-star for the free 24 hours of premium time.

I've gotten 4 stars twice but never 5 so far. The failure was that Trans lost half of its health, Here are some hints:

 

Don't let an enemy ship into TV's circle or it will stop.

Have a DD running around so that it can torp ships that are too close and take them out fast.

Don't bother torping ships at max range, the UI is good at dodging.

Use torpedo acceleration.

Crusiers use IFHE. Cruiser AP doesn't do much damage to the catapults.

Kill England before Rasputin.

Have a BB out front to soak up damage that TV would otherwise take.

BB AP is wonderful at taking out towers.

It's probably best to have 2 BBs, 2 DDs and the rest CAs if you can division.

Don't lag behind to get the ships that spawn way back, the most important stuff is ahead.

As said, DDs need to smoke for the team. Remember that TV is constantly moving.

One friendly ship should stay in the circle at all times.

The circle heals you.

Use your damage control immediately upon getting a fire because it regenerates fast.

Be judicious about repairs, use TV's heal circle if you can.

Bring 6 friends, I suppose.

My clan did it with 5 players and 2 randoms total.

We brought 1 BB, 2CL and 2DD
Randoms brought 1CL and 1DD, I think.

We were full strength when Rasputin arrived, lost 3 ships to Rasputin, but sunk him and got 5 stars.

I guess the only real important bit is to bring 2 DDs that can stay alive until rasputin arrives, so that they can chain smoke transylvania
1BB was plenty for dealing with the catapults, so long as it stayed out in front

All these anecdotes about how "I got it in the first/second try" mean nothing other than you were lucky.

 

Good for you!

 

I'm done here. Back to trying my luck.

 

Edit:

 

I'm taking about playing alone or with one other person. 

 

If you had a clan do it, then clearly it wasn't random.

I do not recommend this. From what I understand, having more ships in the cap circle makes Transylvania sail faster, and it will outrun your battleships if more than 3-4 ships are in the circle at once. It will also make Transylvania yolo into Rasputin faster.

Best strategy as far as I've seen is to keep only 2-3 battleships inside the circle.

Please read this excellent post on Halloween scenario tactics  , And TRY

to pas it to others. Also as more people learn , by default  the scenario will become easier every day, or at least your odds of more competent team members will increase as more people learn the battle and/or of this posting and people passing/learning tips.

I've never had trouble keeping up with a battleship. In fact, I'm usually having to slow down.

 What if I know what to do already?

 

Can you post that to my random teammates, please.

That was interesting. It was also interesting that I'd noticed most of this myself. I still think IFHE may be better than AP for the cruisers. I've tried both in several runs and it seems that pure IFHE seems to work best. Usually I target as many ships I can see that aren't on fire and then go back through and do it over and over. In this way I can have every ship in range burning.

I did it last year solo... 5 Star easy. I think it was in my first try or a few and this year only took me about 5 games solo. 

 

All you have to do is, stay around the ship and at then end... Everyone gets in front of it... 1 person pushes it's stern, so it doesn't stop. Instant 5 stars.

 

It's actually really easy.

Ah. The complaining worked! Not only did it make me feel better, but...

 

I immediately got on a winning team!

 

Thanks Darth and all the others that helped me squeak out a 3-star win!

Sadly this is the most accurate statement that explains all the game play now days.  A lot of the people you run into that seem to be doing dumb stuff don't care about the forums, don't care about teamwork, don't really care about the game.  They saw an add for it on Facebook and installed it.  Now they're just killing time with it.
