This event is now in its third year. Plenty of people have completed it previously, but there are a lot of new players in the game who are trying it for the very first time. For some of them this is their first experience with operations ever, and they have to get used to different rules with strange ships. Give them a break.

A Halloween event being called garbage from Dante's fifth level of hell?  I'd call that a success.

Throwing them to Cerberus is the only way to learn. Last year when Halloween came around, I was so brand new that I didn't know you can't do team damage in ops. I was refusing torp shots I could have taken because I was terrified of going pink.

An event that is centered arround teamwork is hard to complete when the rest of the game rewards selfishness, WHO KNEW.

I disagree. Teamwork is leaving stage right due to OP ships that are not dependent on others to achieve their selfish goals

Hmm... I think I see your problem... you need to get out of the eternally drowning wrath circle and move your way up to ring 1 with me and Socrates... be sure to say hi to iduckman in ring 2 on your way over. :Smile_glasses:

No. The Op isnt that hard. If they're failing here then co-op is always open for business. 

 Here's an idea. Instead of whining about a 1 week event Op, take advantage of the Operations Discord channel. It's not like we haven't made an open offer about 1000 times. I'm on my phone atm or I'd make it 1001 times. 

 Advantages to joining our channel... 

You can get carried to a 5 star if you're not interested in improving and just want the stars.

 You can get free tutoring in all the Ops. To the point you can be the one carrying a random team if you have the ability to learn the skills.

 We don't judge or shame.

 You get a crash course in movie quotes. "Ever seen a grown man naked?", "I picked the wrong week to give up sniffing glue"

 You can witness me doing some epicly stupid stunts.. and make fun of me for it.

ALL BUT THE CURRENT OP REWARDS SELFISH PLAY. Get your reading glasses out and actually look at the words before disagreeing ya twit. 

And again I disagree, the rewords don;t have nothing to do with being "Dependent". Now having ships so over powered they don't need help of other class ships. is IMO why team work is breaking down in the game.

The scenario which includes tier 3 is quite simple honestly. All it requires is some team-work and good DD play. The DD needs to smoke up the transylvania so it doesnt take massive amounts of damage. Team work is necessary so that the team wont focus on one side and let the ships come from the other side. need to have the team firing on multiple targets. Also the Rasputin is a little bugger to deal with, I think thats the only part where most scenarios fail. easy way to kill rasputin is to have a DD torp it or a BB ram it. focus firing also works.

next time you play it, be vocal in the chat and tell the team what to do nicely.

Cheers

791 HP away from a 5 star win. That's when WG decided the game NEEDED to end with shells just about to kiss The Great Gorgon and kill it. 791 HP!!!! :etc_swear:

Almost broke 1 million in damage. WG cheats and cheats well in this particular Halloween Scenario.

Good point. This is not a difficult scenario for T3 but it does take a few runs to get the tactics down.

Honestly though, if an online pixel bote game halloween event gets him worked up enough to call it that, he must be leading a pretty comfortable and happy life with everything provided him, if he consider that to be such a horrible thing.

There are a multitude of threads and videos on how to beat this operation - take advantaqe of them and learn what you need to do and communicate those things to do to the team at the start.  It was far harder when there were entire teams who never played it and team damage was enabled.  It is not extremely difficult or impossible and if you have the rank to do this operation then you should have been able to do the previous weeks operation.  AS noted - Sun Ray is much harder..

Especially since there are five levels of Hell worse than that.

Heyo Captain,

We're all down for feedback and criticism about elements you may not enjoy in game.

We would however, encourage constructive posts so that we can better understand where your issues lies for future consideration and so the community at a large may be able to offer solutions for your issues.

So in saying that, what would you change about the operation Saving Transylvania? 

I recently took a group of random players through the operations as part of our 7.10 Update Rundown Stream where we succeeded. 

I also found this guide here, that may explain some of the mechanics if you are having issues, be the hero and help your team know what to do if they don't :)

Looking to hearing your feedback!

Fem,

Ok, they title is a bit extreme but he has a point.  I do not remember this being quite this tough last year.  

I’ve tried this at least seven times yesterday and not one winning team.  Not one win, not one star, and yes I know the mission and usually finish 1st or 2nd.  Even teams that have only lost one ship can’t finish this mission and getting to within 5km of the portal and dying with a couple minutes left isn’t fun, it’s bloody annoying as all get out.  Also, the mission is a boring escort mission without much complexity so the learning curve just shouldn’t be that long.  I mean, the ships and graphics are cool, Rasputin is cool looking, etc.  The mission is the most basic, yet people struggle.  I’m assuming as with one earlier comment that many players are just noobs and it’ll get better.  It better get better because it’s just not very fun.  

The Discord suggestion is a great one, just need to get people to join in.

The Ultimate Frontier was like that.   Nobody could win it but after a while people did get much better and now I love it.  Same with Defense of Newport.  But people have longer stretches to learn those and they cycle around more than once a year.  Still, great imagination with the overall look, but a boring uninspired operation IMO.
