I’d like to get the tank, no clan at the moment, so have to wait till later. 
 

from what vids I’ve seen the gun is pretty good, basically the same as tech tree version other then the gun.

Oh, the WT Ritter. Yeah, I'm a little annoyed that they changed the distribution of ingots. They noob-proofed the event and made it more grind-heavy. Less players will earn it for free (as its more about battles played instead of skill now) but more players will be able to buy it. I guess last year's event where it was very easy for unicums but difficult to even buy for noobs was too generous and now they are figuring out a way to profit from it.

 

I won't get into the super nitty gritty details, but last year, your main source of ingots was earning BIA medals with a clanmate. You could barely get to 700 ingots last year by not earning medals, and there was no cap on how many medals you could earn by playing. This year, you can earn over 900 ingots without earning any medals, and there's a cap on medal ingots to prevent good players from actually earning the tank any faster than less skilled players.

 

What I really don't like is the cap on medals, and them nerfing how many ingots you get from medals. Last year, we got 45 ingots per BIA. This year, we get 5 ingots per medal, and we can earn up to 20 BIAs and 20 Crucial Contributions before it caps out at 200 ingots total for medals. This also effectively eliminates any clan from getting the tank if they're not stacked full of members. WG shouldn't force clans to get ~30 incredibly active players to 50 decently active players as the only way to get the tank for free. A tournament clan with only a few member has no chance at getting the tank for free, no matter how good they are. Most clans with less than 30 members probably won't even have a chance to buy the tank with gold.

Thanks for the maths.

 

explain why playing today for 3 games, I had 2 people asking me to get in my clan. 
the thing is, I totally missed last year thing, and I was recently about to hop clans. 
i guess that’s not really a good timing.

this

no chance for less active clans/players no matter how many medals

 

Honestly last year the medal contributions made it too easy, but as usual WOTB goes from one extreme to the other.

the waffle is won for every member of the clan if the clan as a whole has reached a certain threshold ?

In EU land it's actually (70 daily + 50 weekly + 165 from clan rewards) x 3.= 855 ingots max without medals.

Nope, each individual member needs to have the required number of ingots to get their own.

Yes, but in a toon.

   Playing certain tanks can make it more or less likely.   

However given the number of clan toons out there right now - it is tough, and folks are intentionally holding fire to spoil some of those -- saw it a bunch in 7-8 yesterday

That's just stupid then.

 

I have no problem with the BIA, that's not that difficult. But getting 6/7 kills is flat out ridiculous.

 

No desire to attempt the grind now. Zero.

Double GSOR toons are one good way to get BIA, clips basically confirm kills if they're sub 700 hp. Also, anything that combines an extremely deadly clip with DPM.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

What? I saw that the ingot earning capped out at 100 medals each, getting you a grand total of 500 ingots if you do all 100 for one medal, and 1000 ingots for doing both medals all 100 times.

 

 

 

Edit*

I just checked in-game, you can only get 200 medals in total, sorry for the mis-info. (Though I wish that the above statement was true).

Additional emphasis on elements plaguing Blitz, the complete imbalance brought by platoons, makes sense. :facepalm:

 

Maps disappear for years, crucial game elements like tank ranks and avatards being given development priority, what the what what is wrong with these people?

It’s a completely stupid, poorly thought out “event.” Platoons are the largest imbalance in Blitz, it’s moronic to base an entire event on platooning. Since there’s no special game modes running currently, I try to just play ratings. These platoon events are not designed with average players in mind.

I’ll be glad when this event is over. Getting stuck in way too many platoon battles both single and double platoons.
