1.   the weighting of tier 5 at 2.25 made this tier the sweet spot for many players here on the forums.   But I think it was much too high.  I'm pretty good in my T-1 Heavy, so that was my tank of choice - and the Sigils I got from it's games were LOADS more than what I could expect from tier 10.  LOADS more.

 

2.  The t49's ability to basically turn into "arty" is enough to ruin the game in my opinion.  I rode 5 games in a 'toon with a KBM player who was really good at exploiting the guided missile/auto-lock thing.  I honestly felt bad for the red team; many of them had no chance what-so-ever.   I like the idea of missiles, but something needs to be done to be absolutely sure they don't totally upset the balance of the game -- like the t49a is doing now.

 

3.  I didnt put a lot of, ok none actually, into getting into the top 1k.  I had seen a review of the tank prior and decided I didnt need a "meh" tier 9 hvy. 


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

​This event sucked like hell. I was playing a tier 8 a lot for this event but wasn't given much to the goal of getting to the t49 (as per usual, the company relies on a stupid 2 currency system that makes the event more complicated then necessary). To make matters worse, this event just shows how broken the matchmaking algorithms are. I have played multiple matches where the enemy team had 2-3 T49 As on their team and 0-1 on my team. These matches became 1 sided [edited]shows and ended in a general loss for my team.

Would be better and more realistic if missiles didnt arm in short range engagements. Catch them up close and it should be guns only.  Also missiles cost a fortune - that should have been factored in.

 

Instructions were also confusing so better to keep it simple.   

 

Noticed increased lag - servers struggling w missile graphics?

I liked some points about the event.  Being able to choose rewards without all the interdependencies was nice.  And I liked that there was some weighting so that people without tier IX/X tanks could compete.

 

The tier V weighting was definitely broken though.  I was hanging around the top 150 until the last day just because I can drive a KV-1 competently, despite having basically zero experience in tiers VIII and up.  And of course the broken KB/M T49a made tiers VI to VIII undesirable territory.  I play on mobile so I could have turned on same control mode, but I also play early mornings, and the queue wait times go up noticeably when I do that.

Good effort by WG but the way this played out was a bit half-baked.

 

Temporary tanks just do not interest me.  I am obsessive about the drive to ace every tank I play.  If I have a limited window to do so before the tank is taken away, then I just don't bother with it. 

 

Spare parts earning option was nice.  I took advantage of that.  I should have gone after more of them.

 

The sigils awarding was very imbalanced due to tier.  It is as if you want players who are only up to tier 5 to have a chance to get a free tier 9 premium more than those who have played and ground tank lines to top tier.  This means more players who don't know how to play tier 5 are infiltrating tier 9 in shiny new premium tanks.  This breaks balance.

 

And speaking of breaking balance, the T49 A is the worst balance breaker I have seen yet, even worse than the Dracula and Helsing, but I give the T49 A reluctant approval because it was real and not a total fantasy creation.  And because it is temporary. 

 

I wish something would be done to penalize those who broke the EULA and rules to cheat to win the free tank.  The fact such actions take place makes me question if the game is still worth playing, or if it is just corrupted beyond repair.

The cheaters have not been awarded the Prize Tier 9 tank. The player who was 1001 on the leader board has the tank in their garage.

You should add to the poll the t49a v Sparse Parts.

I myself had no interest in the take away tank. I chose to for for gold, SP and boosters and the garage cert. The premium time certificates and cool down boosters I ignored.

"not a total fantasy creation" technically correct because of the modifier "total". Most of the tanks here ARE fantasy creations, i.e. never produced, blueprints only, turret or body only, or 1-5 built but never saw action. That goes for pretty much all of the tiers. It is a game, although I would like to see a tournament using only "real" tanks that actually saw action or were actually put into production. It wouldn't happen though. Too many tanks to exclude, or at least many of the "upgrades", maybe 80-90% of them.

T49 ATM has serious potential, and can be easily abused by anyone who has the slightest idea of what they're doing. I think a lot of people who weren't very good thought it would automatically get them wins, which is obviously not right. It's easily defeated if you know what you're doing and the atm driver doesn't, although i suppose that's not really different from any other OP tank

My Problem w/ the event? Value and Probability.

 

Like an idiot, I actually bought a few chests. What'd I get? Junk.  The same junk we got as awards--only more of it.

 

Put in extra time for those chests, and a few bucks too, and my reward?

 

Junk.

 

Next event, keep your junk, thank you.

We are limited to 6 questions in the Poll -- at one time CC Sly and Cabbage where trying to get that altered, but sadly they are no longer in Blitz.

I dislike the timer on the t49a if I realized it had on i would have went after the crates i up my chance for that premium tank that most others got for the t49a other than that i love that tank (I only had seven days because of my activity i feel like this event was a waste of time do the timer!

The missile mechanic will be back for sure. I didn't get the 49a, but in general terms liked the mechanic as it added a new dimension to the game. WG must fix the "fire-and-forget missile" that was PC auto aim before unleashing other, more permanent, vehicles on us though. That was an outrageous oversight.

I for one hopes that someone somewhere in WG figures out the opportunity for spinning out whole segments of Blitz (you know of what I speak) rather than continually piling more and more into it.
