Three different types of "stages" and four ​different types of currency? You guys are really giving it your all to make heads explode around here.

Another overly complicated event, hinging on the flawed old fashioned mission system and server clock, needing to somehow finish two sets of missions every single day ... with still the same old issue of pushing supremacy missions onto people who do not play / wish to play supremacy.

I’m with these guys. Over complicated. I don’t know why earning event currencies has to be different with every single event. It’s just unnecessary. Just stick to the same handful of formats instead of the 29 different ones you’ve used this past year and half.

Tier Xs; E100, E50M, JgPzE100, Maus, Grille. Lines I'm Grinding: IS7(IX), STB-1(VIII), AMX50B(IX), 121(VIII) Favorite Tank: E75. Top 100 Tanks: AMX M4 45, ARL 44, IS-2Sh, Chi-To, Chi-Nu, LeKPz M41 90mm, AMX CDC, Sturer Emil, Pz Sfl IV C

Over complicated, difficult event. Welp, I’m still going for the tank as a shiny trophy, but from what I heard its terribly underpowered.


New to tier X? Here’s the meta, with the all new tier x tier list.

Ribble-

I think you or one of the other mods was able to give us a number last time, of the amount of base xp that would be necessary to get the tank. Can you give us the average amount necessary for this event too?

 

It's better to wait the event start - you'll see all the conditions for every stage.

To be honest...

 

Trophies - Earn them, 50 per mission/10 per 500xp, to complete every stage except the firing lines.

Projectiles - You get them by completing a projectile stage; they unlock firing lines

Emblems - Earn them, 1:1 xp:emblem from your best battle out of 5 (Ratings have multipliers), to complete firing lines

 

^That’s the event in a nutshell.  

  • Complex?  Yes. 
  • Easy to understand? Yup, If you can read.  Nope, if you don’t care to or can’t read well.
  • Fun?  Sure, for competiive folks.  Nope, for casual folks.
  • Rewarding?  I dunno... but the end rewards aren’t too shabby.
  • Mission based? Nope.  <—Acrisis, I added that dot for you my friend ;)

 

...Looks like I’ve got two days to get my computer fixed.

No missions needed?

Trophies

Initial and intermediary stages of the task series are unlocked using Trophies. To get them, complete daily missions and earn Combat Experience in regular, rating, or tournament battles.

 

There may not be an absolute requirement, point taken, but everyone has a limited amount of play time and it seems to me that, once again, if someone opts out of supremacy or can do only do one set per day, they will be at the usual disadvatngae, given how wg stacks the requirements for completing levels.

The funniest part of the full text is "learn all conditions in 30 seconds"

After 4 years of playing this and I'm confused. Imagine someone who started playing 2 months ago?

1 mission = 50 Trophies

2500xp from games (At least 500xp 5 times) = 50 Trophies

 

You were saying?

So you'd like a "participation trophy" tank?  

 

I want something that a smidge-above-average player like myself could actually have a chance to earn. Otherwise, why even try? For more boosters I already have too many of? Or for maybe enough spare parts for one piece of equipment on one tank? No thanks. I'll just park my tanks for a couple of weeks instead.

I for one would appreciate a clear explanation of the event before the event starts ...  Generally that is a given before you get general participation from your players I think.

Yeah uh huh.. rated battles as part of this event.. Forget it man. Long long que holds because a lot of players aren’t doing rated battles. They’re OVER rated thanks to letting a non player with 700 battles using gold to tier up and then using a tank to go into a rated battle.. So you all tried to make it so a player needs a vehicle at 100% to enter a rated battle... too easy more gold..!! Problem STILL not solved!
   Then the confusion on what it takes to get this vehicle through this campaign... another nooob wonderland solution... more gold. How about making a campaign that states you can’t use gold and create a campaign that’s actually achievable without over complicating it? Answer to that is the same answer on matching issues.. it’s computer generated. Yeah that solves anything- NOTHING!
    Please.. create an opt out button just like other businesses do. Some of us are seeing way too many issues with “bugs” -“in game glitches” ( no.. it’s not dial up or my wifi when services reflect an FPS / Ping where they’re supposed to be and Speedtest shows I’m on par). WOTB pets talk to kids and make them believe that pacifier answer. Double standards. Some pet on hete disputes a forum entry pertaining to any of this but chimes their two cents on what their issues are.!
     Campaign for this vehicle not worth the time until real players can be assembled to create a real skill set of experiences. Win rates keep dropping with non players showing up in tiers 7-10 with no knowledge base of the game. A guy the other day has 85 battles in an IS6 with a 39% win rate and does “0” damage. Yeah... uh huh. Then throw in a campaign for a vehicle... another drop of nooob cancer inflicting teams. Thanks WG... I guess in the future we can just have a slot to buy our win rates by how much gold we can shell out in brackets.! Problem solved, yep. Just like with skill sets. Uh huh. Let’s keep timers on days whike were at it. Why do I want another vehicle that takes almost 2 weeks to clear one line set of equipment?
    I still have vehicles nowhere near complete now. Add another one..? Really? Nah.. create the opt out button just like I do the opt out wallet thing. Don’t spend, won’t spend..! You Do Not Have Permission to Access that option...Access denied Error Code pick a # !!!!!

Only emblems are earned in series (best result from 5 battles). Once you complete shell icon stage, you get projectile and your series starts.

I was talking only about stage prices. No need to post it here because some players will need only 3 fire lane, some players will need 4-6 lines and for some players 6 attempts won't be enough.
If you don't understand something, ask a question and i'll try to help you.

Each projectile you earn auto-starts your best of five series (aka the firing line).  So for each projectile you unlock, you have a chance to earn more emblems for the tank.
