I have played about a dozen of the Halloween Twilight Missions.  Not surprisingly, just like most WOW games where one is pitted against the bots, the game is out of balance as torpedoes are drastically OP.  It's only worsened due to changes in the past 2-4 days.

The "DDs" in the game fire 16 torps at a time, reload every 10-20 seconds, the ships can turn 180 on a dime, and every third or forth gunfire hit starts a fire.  

The "BB", named the 'Maverick (more like Sitting Duck) is as slow as molasses in January and just as maneuverable. In the beginning, the ship began with one initial heal, and could earn extra through the game, but they took away the initial, and cut down on the 'heal' earning opportunities. It's nearly comic. One is reminded of a hyaena pack ripping at a dead wildebeest.

 

Tonight I tried the newest Halloween Op, and it was a joke. Torp soup that ate the team in mere minutes, with each torp doing ~10K damage on the 60-hp "BBs"  or 30-hp cruisers. where the speed and maneuverability of the former can best be described as akin to a dead hippopotamus carcass.

Dear WOW: could you try just once and create an operation or mode where DDs and their endless torps are not the dominant weapon?

 

No doubt the DD mafia and the self-proclaimed (and self-righteous) 'serious' players will rush to this post to refute, condemn and insult, so fire away.  I"ve spoken my peace.

you dont HAVE to fight RAs and his horde, and its up to you to plan your exit before the 5 minute mark and the mutant spawns.

otherwise theres very little torp spam... unless one of the other teams has a couple of anglers and doesnt like you.

There haven't been any changes! These are temporary fun modes. There are no rules. There is nothing to complain about. Play them, have fun or not! It's your choice.

I have been playing predominantly BB in this mode due to the amount of filth I can carry, I don’t generally play bb much otherwise. while yes it can be tough to fight the high tier DDs one on one, I have won more of those duels than I’ve lost.

Maverick is simply to grind through to the Scorpioroid and Crocosaur once you get crocosaur you can nearly solo against Rasputin and its Mutantvoskes escorts.

I almost have no issues with DDs in this gametype naturally this like a typical survival mode so it naturally gets harder as time goes on, game even mentions its not about winning just spawn in collect as much filth as you're comfortable with and get out when you're done.

Other player teams? Don't trust them, don't let them too close but don't shoot at them only shoot the player shooting at you.

Just free xp to the Crocosaur. That ship can let you solo Rasputin. Take 2 clanmates with you and just crush everyone. 3k filth easy every time.

Otherwise just enjoy it or dont play man.

I guess shooting bots in coop didn't prepare the OP for the Halloween scenario.

WG should increase the difficulty in coop now so they can play this scenario better in the future. :Smile_popcorn:
