I don’t know about you, but I loved this event. So many rewards for free to play people, better rewards for only $4.99, and it allows you to grind so many tanks. At the end of the event, I had enough free xp to research the IS, and I’m super close to getting the IS-3. Thanks WG!

yes, but that event wasn’t that bad either. The tank was easy to get, no money involved. I’ll take a free tank any day. Plus the tanks actually decent. I would’ve used a worse comparison like the Christmas event, or so on.

 

From what ribble said about looking at the data from this event to plan for the future, I wouldn’t be surprised this comes around every 4 months or so. Not too often, but often enough to keep drawing vacant players in.

It said that it was Season 1, implying that there would be more to come.

IMO for $5, its the best deal they've ever done.  I wasn't gonna do it at first, but figured for $5 why not?  with some free codes I finished it days ago and almost totally filled my vaults, and some days I didn't even play, and rarely got all the missions done in any one day.

I'm still offended that they put a red one on your main screen that you can't get rid of without paying the $5.  But I eventually did pay it, the stuff is well worth $5, I liked having the Thunder being built in the background.  Still, my philosophical objection to forcing the $5 will stand.

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

You had to pay cash, To really reap the rewards.

 

Not a true event.

How does paying cash make it not an event? Is there some definition of event that states an event cannot require cash?

I’m retired have lots of time on my hands currently recovering from surgery and am a high risk for COVID w/heart trouble and stage II COPD. So I bought the $20 pass. Figured why not help fund this and future events for players who aren’t as well off as I am.

I dislike the aspect that to get certain items one needs to pay. I would have been happier if the Thunder wasn’t locked behind a paywall even if it was just $5.  Especially since it is a fairly OP tank, the fact is it’s just tier 6 is what lessens my angst there. 
 

I got the $5 BP, and it was fine, I easily completed it two weeks ago. 

Personally I like Exp bases grind events - I think WG could shape the BP concept better - perhaps that wins tokens that can be applied to missing premiums. 
  Not a specific premium - but have a value to tier X ones, less for tier 9 ones, and gradually decreases as the tier goes down. 
I say this as I am missing the Badger and Vk90 ;) 

 
But I think that completing rewards from a BP Season could give like 1/4 the tokens required for a tier X isn’t bad 

  And that a Premium BP could boost that by 50% 

 

That way WG doesn’t need to keep rewarding new tanks for a Season - and gives players a reward that they can tailor to their desires.

It was easy and affordable and there was something for the FTP players. Im good with it. But they have done a lot of events that were far better.
RNG doesn't bother hackers.

I like this idea as it benefits both the player that plays daily and wants a specific tank they don’t have, and a not so regular get a tank that their interested in.

 

Though realistically WG wouldn’t do such a thing that almost seems bad for business. I’d defeat a large purpose of the in game shop, and players wouldn’t stay regular if they could pick up the one tank they want after 4 or so of these events, then dip. They’d lose a lot of regular sales if each player could get what they want.
 

At least that’s my view on it. Ideas brilliant, but I doubt they could fix up a plan to make it flawless for them and us. Maybe I’m completely wrong and there’s a good way to create these events. I’m not large scale tank collector like you, but I feel you when your missing only a few tanks you want.

My theory is that most of the NA population is impatient. 
   It would not be likely really affect sales due to that - as well as 1 tank / 4 seasons isn’t exactly a cutting sales issue. 
 Plus it saves WG from needing to add new tanks for each season. 

 

Without an incentive for the Premium BP, folks are not going to buy it.  
 

I don’t actually expect WG to do this - I was just looking at an easy method WG could recycle the BP concept without needing to push out new tanks for them.

The impatience is good for business. Ran into several Thunders on day one of the event.
