WG did the Halloween even this year.  Again just FANTASTIC and keeps me playing.    Loving the camos on the ship as I collected most of them.    So one unique thing from the even was the "filth".   There was a serious rumor that WG was intending on using this to test out fog for official standard maps.    I really liked this idea and was hoping we would have possibly heard about it.   My guess is rather then having a Cyclone roll in they could actually have a fog (filth) cloud.    it would look more real, give players a chance to maybe stay out of it for a while.   you could even have it only cover half the map.    Again this was a rather serious rumor so I am just wondering if anything will become of it.

The Halloween event in general seems to have been a testbed for a number of things. The Fog/Filth being the obvious one for a possible Fog weather effect. We also had the first RoF boosting consumable in-game on Halloween Chapayev, which was something long considered as a possible consumable for certain ships (namely non-auto loading USN cruisers, as a "cueballing" consumable).

Personally, having an actual fog effect roll in would be an interesting feature; either roll in at the start and everyone goes in blind, or roll in near the end and it's up to fast ships or ships with radar/hydro/planes to spot anything.

The filth Fog was a great addition to the halloween operations. To add this to the random/co-op I in my opinion don't think it would work the same way.

1st off in Halloween scenario there were three times as many ships coming out of the fog, compared to 12 on each team in random and 8 in co-op. 

Enemy ships in Halloween came through a portal in One fixed position. random and Co-op start in opposite spawns with hundreds of possible routes.

The fog would create the ever present Hide from the enemy mentality,in the end case of battle.

Start of battle would become  accidental encounters.Throughout the 20 mins.

DD's would search out ships with random torp spreads. This would become a DD only game,because of this.

The few ships in any given battle is far to low to make any kind of exp unless you drive a torp spamming DD.

Another scenario w/it would be cool though.
