I just watched the Waterline vid and was mightily surprised, a lot of stuff going, and even more surprised the change to snowflakes is getting more light than a new game mode and the change to ranked.

Yes, Halloween event will be a test for Battle Royale mode. Will it work? I don't know but I'm curious in the extreme and will be glad to test it extensively.

I'm also glad they seem to be willing to risk opening the shackles of Random monopoly.

EDIT:

Dev Blog came out with details. It isn't Battle Royale. Tho, Ring format looks interesting for an event.

Because frankly I've disliked every Halloween event, and hated that they tie unrelated other content into the event, so I just don't pay attention to it any more.

It is a test... back in the day, the first Halloween event I played was the test ground for Operations. I wasn't around for the Mc Ribb, but I guess it failed or was just a stopgap. This one is full Battle Royale, the impact it can have in how the game is played is huge. I mean, a new prime game mode.

A long time ago, I worked at McDonalds and cooked McRibbs.  I am not sure they are even meat.

Sold a whole lot of them though.

If battle royale means every player for himself, I'll never EVER play it.

More commonly it is Divs battling other Divisions. 3-4 ships teams battling it out to last man standing.

Wasn't there the Post Apocalyptic event that was similar but with 4 teams?

Yea and you had to fight bots and potentially other players to get a resource to take with you to the exit point.

Well, besides this being the first I'm hearing of it, I don't have much enthusiasm for a battle royale mode. It's not fun. If I wanna fight everyone on the map, I'll just play random.

Most probably, you'll be able to drop in Divisions... it is a different dynamic. You'll be fighting it out against other divisions.

Tanks has Steel Hunter, which is a battle royale...hard to tell for sure but a good portion of the player base doesn't enjoy it. Part of the issue is that you are not using the tanks that you bought or grinded XP for, or the crews that you spent many thousands of matches in improving.  If you finish in the bottom 10 out of 20, you actually lose credits in the mode.  There is one queue for solo players and one queue for divisions, but there have been obvious cases of division mates sync dropping in the solo queue and working as a team. It needs a lot of work to fix the issues.

Then it's the scrap battles we had for a Halloween event a couple years ago. Which, again, wasn't fun. Look, I get it. Battle royale is popular for some reason on other games. Idk why. But that doesn't mean every game needs to have it as an option. It's just gonna be more time and resources wasted when they could be fixing the current issues we have, rather than causing new ones.

I never liked that mode, rather do the op German tank event than another SH one and they have 4 phases for the Anniversary ?

 

Nope not something for me, I mean I get that this is an fps but it's not.

It will be interesting to see how it goes. The last time they did this is was the DD only event, with special ships based on T10 DD models. 

Hopefully this time they will expand the ship types available, and make the ships less gimmicky. My least favourite part of most of the event ships is how they don't move and shoot like the normal ships in game.

Yes, and it was not my cup of tea because of the ships. I'm a DD main, and I disliked the mode immensely for the reason stated above.

Players scream that WG never releases new game modes, but as soon as they explore options people scream at them for wasting time when they should be "fixing"* what's already in game. It's little wonder that WG seems to not pay much attention to what the forums say. 

*Put three players in a thread about what needs fixing, and you'll get five different opinions on what needs to be done.

It’s the BBQ sauce. Slather enough BBQ sauce on a cow pie and someone will eat it.

Its really not that huge.... every game has a battle royale mode these days... and most of them are trash... I wouldnt expect WoWs' to be any better.
