I’m sure most people reading this have probably already finished the 30 game grind so, how did you do?  Was anyone able to get the type 59 for free? Did you have a strategy for how to play your 30? Did you end up better or worse than you thought you would? I personally already had the type 59 so I wanted to get everything else available for free. The best 10 of 30 format gave wiggle room for those games that you or your team fully potato’d and it didn’t hold it against you. I spammed the AMX Proto at tier 9 for mine. I would’ve run a tier X but I know my own limitations and knew it wouldn’t end well for me. 

 

I ended up with close to 12k lunar coins and was able to get all the other goodies. All in all I think this was a very good event. Bar the bugs when it released, it was straightforward and easy to understand. There wasn’t 17 different currencies to calculate and no gambling. Yes they had the lunar chests for those who wanted to gamble but it also gave those players with millions of spare credits the option to buy chests with credits. There are several peeps here on the forum that could’ve purchased hundreds of em using only creds. 

 

Would you like to see more events like this or do you prefer other styles of events? I for one can get behind more done this way. Not a fan of the grind 50+ games a day events and the ones that only count wins are the worst. This one was spot on.

I liked the event; quick and easy. Getting the tank for free is a true challenge, but getting everything else minus the tank is very durable.

I prefer this event to others that require you to missions to get a currency.

I love the ones that need it most.

You should. You’re playing games anyways and you’ll get some freebies. You can easily get a garage slot, some free xp, and a couple premium camos. Even if you don’t try to win the type, skipping it altogether is just a waste.

I would have got it for (basically) free averaging ~1340 XP for my top 10 games. If I didn't already have a type 59, it would have only cost me 100 of my free mission gold, which makes me disappointed that it wasn't for a tank I already had.

 

I personally LOVE these low effort events. It's basically just free tanks, and I don't have to stress out over grinding a million different currencies for a million hours. In fact, I'd like every event to be like this so that I can continue to get free tanks.

 

As far as event strategy, I played the tier 10 Bat Chat, no platoons, and supremacy only. Bat Chat because I can get a lot of spotting XP, the clip helps for picking up kills, and the speed let's me steal a lot of late game damage. Supremacy only because there's more noobs, and I can get some extra miscellaneous XP by doing things like capping supremacy bases and resetting them as well.

I’m sure it was good for those who didn’t mind participating. For those who didn’t “actively” participate, that’s just as well, too, but it’s hard for me to imagine they didn’t collect on any of the free stuff, after thirty games played. 

 

For me, I already had the tank but came away with a sizable amount of credits and and some free xp. So, not bad for just logging into the game and playing, since I was going to do that anyway.

 

#Free stuff is ok by me. :great:

Haven't had a chance to play with college and club. Might just start the scroll and yolo some tonight despite my spotty home wifi. Oh well. At least I might get something. Doubt i'll get close enough to the tank to be willing to toss some gold at it. If it's under 3k gold, then maybe since that's about how much i have from the video ads right now. It's not like I need yet another premium tank, after all. I'll get back to you on results if I have the time to play them.

Sometimes, you just gotta sit back and watch them all burn. Don't forget to bring popcorn. You're going to need a snack.

I had gotten the Type 59 in the New Year's auction, so I wanted mostly the Ding camo.  Whatever else I could happen to pick up from the top line would be a bonus.  I spent a couple of days just trying different tanks and deciding what I wanted to run.  Then I spent two days doing the actual 30 battles.  I wound up playing a mix of tier 7 (Comet, Type 62, Drac, T-43, Tiger I, Tiger P) and tier 8 (M4 49), all Supremacy.  I eventually managed 11020 coins, so I was even able to get the snazzy lantern avatar stage for free.  Overall I'm very happy with events like this that don't require insane amounts of playing.

Tip: If you are not going to get the Type59 tank then there is no point opening the ding camo reward. Instead open up to the second last stage on the lower branch and try to get the camos in the upper branch.

 

If you dont get the tank for free then dont feel bad, by definition most players wont qualify. The requirement of 10 x 1350 is roughly 10 Ace battles which are awarded to top 1% of players.

  I’ve got 59 garage slots and the 59. I didn’t need anything from the event.

You don't want the free exp or the credits? Obviously you don't NEED these rewards, but you could use them somehow or another, surely. You wouldn't even need to try; you'd just play like normal.


I love the ones that need it most.

I got the Ding Dong camo and a ton of losses along with total frustration.

 

Damn near every shot fired at my IS 7 hit and penned like butter.

 

Hate this game

I already have the Type so i got the camos i wanted..  (which did NOT include the ding-a-ling camo) so i used the Jade Shard one on the WZ-121B i decided to buy (as i didn't want to do the horrid grind leading up to the tech tree version) and saving the others for a future upper tier tank.

I used a mixture of tanks that i could see were my better xp earners in tiers 7-10.

I hope every event runs like this, I liked the best 10 out of 30, I liked that it wasn't based on 30 wins but 30 games so you don't have people trying to blow games they aren't doing well in.  I wouldn't have turned the free tank down but it's not one I was just dying to get either.  I didn't get enough points to get the tank but I got everything on the bottom row and 2/3's of the top row, plenty of nice goodies to be had.

 

My strategy was a little different.  Either the game has changed or I've been getting worse and not better, but anyway my WR has been dropping like a rock.  So for the event I wasn't worried about playing my winningest tanks, I wanted the tank that has the most potential for a high score.  I played my mutant.  It's got huge glaring weaknesses [really tall with basically unarmored sides] that especially hurt on open maps, but in certain situations it's unstoppable.  I was hoping those situations would happen 10 times out of 30 games.  As stated, my play currently sucks, so I still only ended with an average just north of 900, but it was enough to get the things I really wanted.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.
