Halloween 2011/2012: Flaming Lantern is a bit boring. Misty Skull is more like a .jpg file hovering instead of an actual particle effect.


Halloween 2013: I was actually generally pleased with all of the 2013 effects. Hellfire makes me wet though.


Halloween 2014: Kill them with (hell)fire. The ideas of the effect may have been good in development, but they are just god awful in execution.


 


Seriously, colourful-outline clouds of smoke with phantom eyes? If they cut back on the fucking smoke, maybe they would have been better. Perhaps if they inverted the colours, or took the grey out all together and just did the clouds of coloured smoke. The grey just looks awful.


 


Phantasm and Ghosts were meh. I didn't like nor hate them, but like many have said, feels like a cheap knock-off between c9 and HG.


 


Bonzo is just bad. It even pukes, it knows how bad it is.

Foamy the Fearsome

C-bubbles - CV - Bonzo
11/12 was a tough one, was choosing between lantern, cbubbles, misty and knifestorm. the knifes in knifestorm are too large, hence I dislike it, but apart from that it looks pretty cool. lantern is kinda meh, but I happen to like orange effects. Cbubbles and misty are both meh in my eyes, but I guess bubbles is a little less visible.

I actually really like all '13 effects, cv is just the least cool one IMO

I see why people like bonzo since its unique, but it looks gross to me and I wouldnt want it floating over my head :P

- Eerie Orbiting Fire. It had potential but is way too dark and smaller than regular Orbiting Fire. Had they done it with the Poisoned Shadows fire instead it could have been high tier :/

 

- Spellbound. Again big potential here but the effect is just way too dark AND too.......transparent. Even on bright maps it's much harder to notice the effect than Arcana.

 

- Tie between Stare from Beyond and Haunted Phantasm Jr. I went with SfB because I used to have a SfB unusual that was near impossible to sell :>

   The fact that people consider Bonzo below the smokes and Phantasms makes me sad

 

- It's a Puzzle to me. Purple>Green every time, with the exception of Arcana/Spellbound. The orbiting Ghosts are just the most unoriginal out of the 2015 effects iMO

I dislike the 2015 Halloween effects the most. Specifically speaking, Death by Disco is hardly noticeable in game, when it first released, I remember having to squint to see the tiny skeletons on one individual's Pullover. It's not horribly ugly, just the Haunted Phantasm Jr. of 2015.

I'd have to say EOF, Brain Drain, the arcana, flaming lantern. I'm personally a fan of the bat effects. The other effects I listed are, in my opinion, garish or flat-out not impressive. I'd go for a knifestorm, myself if people didn't massively overprice the ones I want in their backpack.
