Octerror Fest 2018 was the eighth Octerror Fest for The SpongeBob Community, which started October 12, 2018 and concluded October 31, 2018. Like the previous two years, every game during the event counted for a teams tournament named the "Octerror Cup" between the Band Geeks (Frankensteins), Drasticals (Vampires), and independent users (Ghosts), where everyone could play it. In the end, the Drasticals won. Loyal Customers received a sneak peek of the event on September 30, 2018 and it was publicly announced October 3, 2018.
