Is there any point to these fuckers?
Why didn't they make a new boss this year? Pretty lazy desu
Valve mentioned ahead of time on the blog that halloween will be all community content and that they were working on the sequel to the Gun Mettle update. Its not like you had no warning.
The worst part about the update is what they REMOVED instead of added. You cant get paper masks or any kind of voice modifier/paint spells anymore.
So glad I uninstalled this shit.
First time I ever put this much time on a PC game with a big community and it's been more than enough for me. Fuck big community games, fuck shooters, fuck mmos, fuck MOBAs, fuck Steam, fuck Valve, fuck games with timed drops, fuck games with cash shop, fuck PC in general.
i got multiples of the same halloween items, so i just transmute the extras in hopes of getting something better. you cant trade or craft halloween items, so might as well transmute them.
i got a haunted version of this. feels fucking good man
>Mfw i see the price of the 2013 and 2014 haunted items
>TWENTY US DOLLARS FOR THE BEEP MAN
I like it. I like contracts and having free ones for Halloween gives me incentive to go back to the old maps.
I think they should of made a new boss two but honestly this year was better than I expected. Comic was good.
How frequent were the haloween gift drops in previous years compared to the hologram gargoyle this year?
I'm almost certain there were way more opportunities to get a halloween item in the past, this year they've locked it behind contracts with conditions that have to be met
Isn't it just once or twice per day?
And sometimes they're easy (the 'kill the boss and that's it' ones) but other ones are just a grind of reaching 100 souls which depending on the gamemode and how good your team is can easily take upwards of half an hour
Doesn't feel like once or twice a day for me. seems like I get a new one every time I complete one.
For those types of contracts just actively try to collect the crit pumpkins and they take no time at all.
I was going to check the market to see if it's true, but then I remembered I got my beep man from opening those gift things, which is untradable and worthless
thanks valve, can't make any money off this game anymore without gambling
No and no.
Some servers were running it but nobody played them.
Custom maps and modes in general are dead, unless they're cross-game or make it into the official lineup.
Speaking of which, of the 4 new halloween maps only Gorge and Moonshine feel coherent and tought out instead of just lazy halloween reskins.
>Carnival of Carnage contract
>Map crashes since the event started
>Total amount of available contracts reduced to 1
>Can't throw away contracts
>Event ends 11th/12th
You get one contract per day, meaning you get one random untradable and uncraftable Halloween item from ALL the previous years (the current year's items are exclusive to the crate) per day.
Every 10 transmutes also gives you an item, but that'd mean you'd have to put in 30 items to get that one extra item.
Compare that to last year, when gifts spawned for you once every 2 hours, meaning 12 items per day if you don't miss any gift drops, these gifts had different items depending on the map you played meaning you always had a decent chance at getting the item you wanted.
Yea, but since I have the Hale mask already, I just use those as transmute fodder along with other ugly old halloween stuff until I get something nice.
>playing a game that's dead on arrival
Oh wait, you aren't even playing it because nobody has beta keys.
I recently re-installed after a year of being gone just to see if it's worth getting back into
most fucking stressful time
Or at least it would have been if it was a previous year where you actually earned a cosmetic item instead of some meaningless points that only sometimes go towards earning an item
