Sitting this one out. It will take 18 days to equipe all my tanks. May complete some stages, but not at all interested in another tier 8 Russian tank.

I'm more interested in the Spare Parts than the tank, and certainly won't be grinding the Booster path...that one is baffling.

No one is pointing out the fact that you can buy your way to spare parts at one of the stages in the grind?

Really?

No one?

 

I mean, c'mon.  Remember... what... just before the update when they said you wouldn't be able to buy spare parts, which is why they weren't worried about the compensation ratio, and why they weren't worried about stealing everyone's equipment?

"It's not a money grab because we won't be selling that currency."

24 hours later

"Get your spare parts here!  Low Price!  Just have to pay to stage 7 of the grind!  Spare Parts here, who needs 'em?  Get 'em while there hot!  Spare Parts Here!"

It's almost soon enough to be comical.

 

Personally, I hope you go on an epic rant when they sell the AC IV Sentinel bundled with Spare Parts next weekend. And then two weeks after that.

No official info about the cost of IS-2Sch yet, but the WG RU mod posted that it will take Tier X missions to do it completely free. So I guess we are going to see soon.

You remember the last time it came out?  In the AC IV Sentinel of Love Package?  They had that special going for two weeks?  And then before that special ended, they did a weekend sale for the AC IV Sentinel?

And then Serb Bought one, and so they sold them on every corner as a special?  "Buy a Panzer IV, get a Sentinel FREE!!!!"

And then their was the time they put the anime girl on it?  You remember that?  Or the cross over anime special edition?  You know, the one with the flashy multi-color vomit Camo and TWO ANIME GIRLS on it together?

Or that time they gave it away free to people who could fog a mirror?  You remember that?  And like a third of the blitz player base couldn't qualify to get one...

Why you gotta be that way Mok?  Why?

Well, for all tank grinds where the tank itself was the final stage, it was never hard to get the 2nd to last stage.

 

So, if you can get 100k spare parts as stage rewards for all stages of the grind, then you can skip trying to finish / gold the IS2h and just use the spare parts to unlock 4 - 5 out of 6 slots for some other tank you already have. Since stages are not repeatable and you can reliable complete most / all of the non-tank stages for "free", I am not too concerned about the limited ability to buy spare parts.

 

It will be the tank bundles with 50k - 200k spare parts included that will be the issue (i.e. can buy multiple times)

So we need to collect these banners, and pins, and double pins, and then use gold to convert them to spare parts to use to unlock the next stage, to then repeat?  C'mon WG, surely you can make it more complex then the last few.. v.disappointed in the last of effort here devs.  3/10

The WG Ru mod posted the required currency to get IS-2Sch: 85K mission currency + 115K XP currency. 

85K is a very low number (Glacier 112 needed 135K) - I wasn't around for the Goose missions so I am not sure if the mission rewards were for that event.

Anyhow they didn't post potential mission currency rewards so it is still a speculation whether you can get the tank for free.

If I can get it for free by clubbing at tier 2 and 5 then cool. If not it's no big loss. Hell I don't have enough spare parts to equip a tier VIII anyway.

Find me on Discord, [SpartacusDiablo#7879]

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.

This is not a cash grab. The tank is there for grinding then purchase at reduced price OR outright purchase. Ignoring it entirely is fine. This is actually the type of thing WG should be using to make money instead of corrupting the core gameplay.

I don't have the spare parts for a new tank,

 

I'm not acquiring anymore tanks until I have tanks I can compete in in tiers 6-10 for tournaments and Clan Wars, as of now I'll be able to get a new tank in 2023.

 

So stuff it

Free tanks are a thing of the past.

 

Grind-to-max

Pay-to-skip-grind

Therefore pay-to-max

 

These are WG's main focus.

 

What's next: Facebook becomes WOTB's next platform and your missions only reset if you let Facebook spam your game activities on your timeline.

The event holds no interest for me. What does is the ridiculous equipment system that basically turned this game into Bejeweled.

Based on the timing, as before we should have 29 sets of missions (one free if you don't complete your Sunday missions) - assuming the WG didn't change the mission start mechanics when your incomplete missions get extra rewards right after the event start. Otherwise we will have 28 sets. 

You do the math.

So tier 10s and tier 10s only if you take the 28 missions.

 

If using 29, then you might be able to scrap past the line at tier 9.

I am fine with events being "cash grabs" as I understand Wargaming needs money.

 

What I am not fine with is having all my equipment stolen and a 4+ Year grind is needed to equip them again.
