I mean, jeaz... is it intentionally this repetitive because free permacamo's cut into revenue? My filth gathering avg went up after getting the Fossil though. This is what 
I do:

1. Point my ship directly at either one of the 200pt filth zones.

2. Tell team my plan. Zoom over there, while shooting ships by our spawn. Get 200 filth, meanwhile waiting for crocosaur to spawn nearby.

3. Kill croco, more filth.

4. Try to kill 2-3 of the fossils in the middle.

5. Exit portal

At that point I usually say don't bother for Rasputin. Better off just leaving and starting a new game to average more filth over time.

 

Is there any other things anyone has thought of to break up the monotony? There's no way i'm playing this till Thanksgiving, I don't care what coal or permacamo's I can get... I'd rather be grinding for research points or free xp.

If you want a challenge stick around to the end, kill Rasputin, always exciting doing that with his escorts, be the only ship left and then try to exit.   Maybe those pesky DD's that swarm the exit and turn on the GOLD immunity button and ram you at any opportunity will let you out.  Doubtful though.. Granted i'm not that good so maybe it will be different for you but it is a challenge.. 

Otherwise.. i think you hit it on the head, getting a bit repetitive at this point..  

Last night watched those DD's eat up two Croc's trying to exit after Ras died.. Thought they were going to make it but.. nope.. multiple rams torps and guns and poof gone..

I'm actually having more fun now that I've unlocked the Croc. With a div you can easily take Rasputin and make out with close to 3k filth in like ~15min.

It's obvious, isn't it? Cycle back and forth into other game modes in between filth battles.

I've still got a couple of non-Twilight directive tasks to complete, which keeps me from devoting myself entirely to this, and that probably also stops me from getting bored. Next week we'll have a new set of directives, probably starting up Wednesday or Thursday, and that too will demand some time outside of Halloween-space.

It's a tool. I'll use it while it's still got something to offer me, then set it aside when that state of affairs ends.

Exactly. It's boring because its incredibly easy when people dont PvP and work even somewhat together.

The truce and truce breaking is the most entertaining part.

It is also the reason why I have not played even one game in this mode.

Especially after the first few days I have found most people to be civil and preferring to cooperate. There will always be bad apples or folks who prefer to PvP, but in my experience it has been few.

The bot spawning is predictable, plus you are always on the same map. If there were more variation in these two things, it would probably stay exciting far longer.

Pikohan going hard core.

Sounds like you've been busy; me? Zero games in the mode.

Didn't like the Apocalypse mode, not interested in this one.

Nope, not bored, because my attention span is more than a goldfish's.

Nope.  Haven't played a lick of it at all.

Essentially recycling the same Halloween events for 3 years now killed any interest for me.  Was hoping they'd come up with a new idea for this year, or at least bring back an old classic like 'Hunt for the Salem Witch' event.

is it really stealing other peoples property if you shoot them in a pvp game

Well, i dont enjoy making people depressed for paltry rewards. Id rather think of a unique way to game the system.

the ultimate betrayal is hilarious, sometimes the red team be calling for truce, but then they would wait by the portal, circling it like sharks or parked right next to it, waiting to ambush you and rob other ships who tried to cash out their motherload.  whenever my croc approaches the portal to cash out, i would always be on the lookout for those pirates, had the trigger on Y getting ready to bring up the shield whenever i see incoming torps and BB shells.  :-)

"Let's all agree to co-operate against the PvE portion of the threat and help each other as human beings" is my way of looking at it.

I'm sorry but there are a lot of laughable comments here. How deeply does one have to be invested into this game mode to be worried about ethical and moral delemas in a PvEvP game mode? 

This is why match quality sucks. Everyone is too afraid of facing other players. They'd rather collect millions of minimal results than actually succeed in making the most of their time.

Literally, this is ridiculous. How long before people start calling for a truce in randoms and just each ram a counter part because 500 experience is more worth it than the hassle of actually playing well?
