Is that a mistake or is it 1994 again?


A deeper understanding of the difference between a fad and a fashion statement will enable you to win a fashion fueled guessing game.

Huh?

 

The date looks fishy...is this meant to be?

Not much challenge to this contest, maybe next time make it "most rocketeer medals" in a certain time frame

 

 

You don't understand what type of damage you do to this game when you give away a tier 8 to anybody


 

I mean come on!! one freaking rocket kill?? i'll be back in two minutes but I sure as heck won't be the winner

Random draw...and only a single unit given. Does it have that much impact?

Out of playing population of 2500 pilots.

Only 500 will get a rocketeer

Out of the 500 only 40 visit the forum.

SO you have a 1 in 40 chance of winning a TL-109.

While a zero chance if you do not enter.

 

correction, only 9 pilots will enter. So you have a 1 in 9 chance of winning top prize.

This, and why won't you be a winner outside of low odds TT?

It all adds up so I would say yes it does!!!

I don't have a 40% win/rate and own more than one tier 8 so I'm not allowed.

I have seen many top players win planes in random draws so stop with the negative waves.

Keep in mind that numbers 4 and 7 are very close to each other on the numpad...a lotto this small shouldn't take an entire quarter...

^^^ This is the type of negativity this game doesn't need.  This is a good effort on WG's part and shows that their not dropping the ball or the game as of yet.  The contest may bore you, but others have never had a rocket kill.  Think of the game, ALL of it's players, and perhaps help someone who would like a rocket kill and an entry instead of injecting negativity to serve your wants and needs.  

 

Good luck to all and thanks Ghost.

You fail to see the point........

 

 

 

 

If somebody wins that has a skill level no better than tier 4 WG just allowed another player the chance to wreck the high tiers for ALL the other players.


 

That's ok, just encourages more people to quit

No it entourages canon fodder to quit. Intelligent people ask for help to improve and get better.

You don't have to start at tier 2 to learn how to play this game and improve.

Although it helps since that is where all the new players that don't know what they are doing play.

Wish I didn't already finish cache rocket mission. Except it was a pain so I guess I'm glad.

 

Most matches are 1 or 2 human plus bots, most players are experienced, doesn't matter who wins the plane
