Next Halloween...

Can we get a zombie mode next Halloween?

I think a game mode that gets progressively harder and rewards more and more for each level of difficulty achieved would be awesome to have in the game, even if it's for a limited time only.

    A good rule of thumb with suggestions is to write it as if the people you're suggesting it to have never played whatever game inspired it - because that might very well be the case. Explain exactly what it is you want and why you think it'd be a good addition. Don't assume other people are familiar with it or that they enjoyed it in other games and will automatically agree with you - write as if you're trying to 'sell' a totally new idea.

    The way you've written this suggests to me that you've played one or more games with a "zombie mode" and think it's self explanatory, but for me it makes no sense. Do you play as a zombie? Or are you fighting zombies? Is this PvE or PvP? Is it an alternate mode of something which already exists in GW2 and if so what? Or would it need to be a new mini game and it's just called zombie mode in whatever game used it before?

    What gets progressively harder? Killing enemies? Collecting something? Stacking boxes?

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

    Also, you might include what's in it for Anet to expend resources to create/test/implement such a mode.

    We already have scaling tech with bosses, unique enemy debuffs (Karka, Awakened, Loyalists) and unique, temporary Magic Find buffs that is granted to us in certain maps for completing certain objectives (White Mantle killing. Awakened killing, Racing,). I haven't had much training in programming, but I think it is in the realm of possibility seeing what Anet has already done without stretching things to a breaking point.

    I wasn't saying it was not possible. I was referring to whether or not ANet can justify taking resources from their planned releases and updates to make what the OP is asking.
