    Without any hesitation, I'ld like to call it the most one-sided and mindless event.
    I was expecting it but really didn't think it would be this bad. For those people who don't have any torps this event is pretty much unplayable esp with the small maps the torp spam is unavoidable, it's so unfortunate the devs encourage this kinda things. If this event didn't have massive gold rewards and cheaper perk crates I doubt any non-torp spammer would be even touching this event.
    It's normal that players would be suggesting selfish ideas that mostly benefits them and their load-outs but what were the devs thinking while selecting the winners ? It's like they selected the ideas mainly based on the easiness of implementing them. Unless they make some changes in the item buffs/nerfs I wouldn't want to see this event again

    Lol I like the chaotic mess in this event but I can admit if I didn’t have good torps I wouldn’t be very happy with it lol if it’s any consolation tho, it’s that most players are so horrible at using torps that despite thier buff for this event most still can’t hit anyone lol

    Love this frenetic mess. Getting more 10 coins wins than ever before. Even getting 10 coins on losses where the winner only got 9 :)

    However i do think Midfight Movies should be considered a small map and added to rotation when only having small maps. It's about the same size as Cold Riddance.

    It is what it is. It is chaotic but still fun. I would have liked it to be 3min battles maybe to match the pace. I just wonder if anyone considered small maps + torps = splash damage galore. Most battles end with one team getting pushed to the spawn and then shot up like fish in a barrel.

    There is a disconnect between the story of Black Storm and the implementation of it. Why put in slower mortars and mines. Its just fluff. Just say "hey use torps, all other weps are reduced by 50%."

    Well as a torp spammer point of view I think I like this event too. But without being biased I'm just saying it's extremely benefitting to the torp spammers only. It's fine if the idea was to make the torps this strong but nerfing every other item this bad too was very unfair. Feels like the intention was to make everyone spam nothing but just torps.
    I have 5 decent torps and I'm rocking this event with my 3 torp shooter set up. Am I saying I can't win enough in this event ? No. Do I think the event idea was too selfish and senseless ? Yes.

    So, w8 to the 6vs6 event with same map/economic conditions!
    But next weapon will be mortars with + 20% area and -20% projects time))
    And it’s be also called “fun” and “tactics”

    I haven't yet figured out how to best adapt to this event, not having a single strong torp in my inventory. I'll be trying again today, but so far my opinion is while the concept is mostly good, it definitely needs some tweaks.

    What I like about this event:
    • Arial slowdowns make 5v5 on small maps work well.
    • Decreased mine timeouts are welcome on a small map
    What I don't like
    • A better implementation would be to improve a single Torp class instead of all 4. We've never had an event that buffs all cannon types, all fire types, all mortar types, etc, and now we are seeing why.
    • I think the event would have been better without the Torp speedups at all... the maps are already small so it feels like overkill

    Pretty sure ages ago there were events where all fire weapons got a duration buff by like 30%, not sure about mortars but I think they had it too. Why the torps feel this op is because
    • They made using torps far easier by giving it speed buff
    • They allowed only small maps
    • And most importantly they nerfed every other weapon to the ground

    Didn’t event realize the 3X golds for this. Haven’t play a battle yet. I might go in there for the golds. Events are getting cheesier by the days. Doesn’t look like the devs care about ranked at all. Ranked needs 3X golds and 2X sugars on weekend twice a month.

    I'm not a fan of events. But this one is close to the worst ever event for me (despite I like my swift torp and have more than one torpedo): torpedos, torpedos, torpedos, even more torpedos, and sometimes mines, sometimes napalm and everything else on a very rare occasion. No need for tactics (at least I didn't see it), no need for thought or reaction or anything, just fire torpedos approximately into enemies direction and number of torpedos will do the thing. Chaos. The only thing that saves it a little bit is gold

    I could only tolerate so much of this event.
    I played for the extra gold, and after about 8 battles or so I just couldn't take it anymore. It was too mindless.
    If the battle time was taken down to 3 minutes or reduced to 5 kills from 8, it may have been more tolerable.
    I hope this event never comes back.

    There is a strategy for this event. Be in front of your mates so you don’t get your torps block. Of course you die more but get more coins at the end. It’s just pure stupidity that players on the losing team can get more coins than winning players?

    I thought it was pretty cool, I didn’t like the idea of having it one sided to certain weapons, but honestly most events are like that. I also felt that the EC blast and flare were still as prevalent as they are in any game mode which annoyed me, but also gave room for the mast majority of players, which own them, to not feel the hurt of the one sided torps.
