Poll: Goose Event Poll (259 members have cast votes)

You have to complete 5 battles in order to participate this poll.

During grind events, how do you feel team compositions change, and how does this affect the amount of time you play?

  1. Improves - I play more (15 votes [5.79%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 5.79%

  2. Worsens - I play less (109 votes [42.08%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 42.08%

  3. Worsens - However I play for the sake of the reward(s) (109 votes [42.08%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 42.08%

  4. No change - I play the same (26 votes [10.04%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 10.04%

The reset times and mission assignment system used for the grind event is...

  1. Excellent, I have no trouble with the reset schedule and feel comfortable with the grind (8 votes [3.09%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 3.09%

  2. Good, I have some trouble with the reset schedule and feel some challenges with completing the grind (47 votes [18.15%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 18.15%

  3. Difficult, I have lots of trouble with the reset schedule and have many challenges with completing the grind (115 votes [44.40%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 44.40%

  4. Horrendous, I despise the reset schedule and consider completing the grind impossible (89 votes [34.36%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 34.36%

In the Goose Event it is officially not possible to grind a tank for "free", even if you do all resets and all missions in tier ten. For a two week grind event, this is

  1. Acceptable (24 votes [9.27%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 9.27%

  2. Unacceptable (235 votes [90.73%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 90.73%

Compared to past events, the Goose event is

  1. Easier to understand (7 votes [2.70%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 2.70%

  2. Equally comprehensible (48 votes [18.53%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 18.53%

  3. More difficult to understand (204 votes [78.76%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 78.76%

Knowing that the Goose event takes dedication to hit all resets and that there is no "free" reward tank to be earned solely by hard work ...

  1. It does not matter, I will play, do all resets and missions and will use gold (11 votes [4.25%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 4.25%

  2. I will play to get some of the stage rewards but will not worry about grinding or using gold to buy the tanks (108 votes [41.70%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 41.70%

  3. I intended to grind and use some gold like I did with past events, but now refuse to spend gold because of the way WG designed the event (63 votes [24.32%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 24.32%

  4. Because of the event and mission stress, team play, etc. I will ignore the event and take a break (77 votes [29.73%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 29.73%

How frequently would you prefer WG to hold these events? Considering your satisfaction, team play, etc.

  1. Monthly (27 votes [10.42%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 10.42%

  2. Bi-monthly (27 votes [10.42%] - View)

  4. Semi-annually (57 votes [22.01%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 22.01%

  5. Annually (32 votes [12.36%] - View)

    Percentage of vote: 12.36%

With the current Goose event that is being held, it seemed fitting to do a poll to gather some player & forum feedback from everyone about the event.

 

There was an additional question planned, regarding the preferred type, but the forum limits the poll to six questions, so I omitted:

 

Block Quote

Thinking about your satisfaction with past and current events, which one do you prefer?
. simple xp grind
. staged xp grind
. staged mission grind
. staged mission and xp grind
. staged mission and xp and lottery grind

 

Maybe, it should be an element of a second poll? If we had a couple more questions.

I just wanna add that when I say I want "these events" monthly, I mean I want events that aren't stupefyingly impossible and cancerous to complete. I don't like seeing it draw out every novice player in existence for me to have to play alongside either.

I prefer the XP Grind type Missions and Win Grind Missions

just like the Tankenstien or The Pz. IV Anko 

The Only problem from Mission Grinds is the Time, like waiting more than an Hour for a new mission

is what making the User preventing his Progression and with the Increase of Gold Mission Reset, This Event isn't a Marathon Event actually, its a Cash Grab Event, 

 

WG never ever make this kind of Cash Grab Event ever!

The Only Marathon Grind is worth are the:

Defender

Tankestien

Anko Pz.IV

Kuro Mori Mine

Hellsing and Dracula

Glacial and Blaze

Yes, the regular XP kind was simple to understand, the staged one started with some stage time challenges, and then it just started to get more complicated since then.

Part two of your reply should be taken into consideration - as from the looks of things and the number of complaints about events - it does effect the game quality a good bit.  So, a vote should be on both aspects, not just one or the other.


What would be an acceptable balance, compromise, ... ? 

 

Because you cannot have one without the other.

 

And, even if you choose not to grind, most of the other players around you probably are.

I just don't like the implementation of if you're lucky. I hated the lost division because most of the people I play with ingame got the AMX, FCM, and/or IS-2 after about 10 crates and I did missions for 18 and bought 3 and got nothing at all. I like events better when there's a specific set of directions we have to take that will lead to definite possession of a tank, though it may be hard.

Players who oppose DogFace can feel the cold, metallic, 122 millimeter end of my IS-6’s gun to

 

their face, and say bye bye to their precious RatBat as their dead body is dragged into a dark

 

corner to be left for the wolves.

Dear WG, while I appretiate you doing casino and impossible grind event to turn me off from spending money I would much rather just spend my entertainment money on pixel tanks outright. 

With my missing out on a AMX CDC despite having spent money trying to get one I won't be buying one now...

this spoils my collection (I don't feel like spending any more money trying to get a CDC, it is now too expensive given the money wasted already trying to get one).

Now I don't feel like collecting anymore. In the past if you put out 6 tanks in 6 months I would have bought each regardless of how I felt about the tank. Now I will MAYBE buy tanks that interest me. But since I feel I can't or shouldn't be collecting anymore you've LOST A GOOD DEAL OF MONEY from this player. 

 

Your PR/marketing people need to be changed.


Always remember, wherever you go, there you are...

HERE I loved this event. The fact that the number of tanks was limited increased my desire to grind it out. In the end, I got it free. Then WG turns this into CSGO with these chests... It's time to stop.

Premium Collection Complete: All Premium Tanks Currently Owned.

Most Valued Tanks: IS-6 Fearless, Ke-Ni Otsu, Snowstorm 8,8CM Jagdtiger, and my personal favorite, being the hardest to aquire, the M60.

Basically the Containers or Chest are just Mock Rip-Off of CSGO's Chest,

but I'm glad it doesn't require Keys in Opening it

  • I hate that we only have a chance of getting the tanks in crates
  • I hate that you have to wait for mission resets to be able to do anything
  • I hate that the missions are also pure luck, as you have to hope you don't get supremacy missions and that the missions give you a lot of whatever you need to pass mission stages
  • I hate that Wargaming tries hard to have two tanks in the grind to make it that much harder to win the one you want (honestly Wargaming, why do we need both Mutants in the game?)
  • I hate that you can't outright buy tanks for a reasonable price
  • I hate that grinds bring out more bad players (yes panzermk6, I know the statistics of having bad players, but surely you agree that gameplay is somehow worse during these events than usual)

Voted. I play much, much less during these grind events. Some tiers are nearly unplayable.

Not completely on topic but related; I wish we could switch to mission type (supremacy vs encounter), by choice as needed. Even with supremacy on, you often don't get them when you need them to complete a mission.

I think it would be best for the win/ xp grind. Mission events just say pay gold to get. We have lives and at peast my schedule resets at 6 am lol. So i usually miss one reset. So xp grind from battle is best.

The mission system will be a subject getting a separate thread in the near future. It was originally part of the poll, but seemed to make for a less objective answer to one of the questions, and then as it turns out, a poll can only have six questions.

But, yes, for many players, the mission system needs work.

Voted for semiannual just because having 4 two week events in a year would mean that 2 months in the year we'd have to deal with the stupidity, idiocy, and whatever else kind of trash that comes into the pubbies for the event.

Weekends are bad enough. I'm not a collector, so I really don't care if they release a mediocre tank which I won't be able to get. But playing my chances on a tank and spending money to gamble on pixel tanks is just not my cup of tea.

I don't fully understand the Goose Grind at all, but once I learned that "FREE" wasn't a part of it, I lost all interest.
