Thought I'd bring an interesting discussion while this event is still up for a few weeks. Poll included but comments are more than welcome. It'll be interesting to see how you guys fair in this event.

 

For me, the most I've gotten so far is 6 crates, mainly playing tiers VIII-X. Jumping in between my tier 8 premiums (Seafang, LA-11, JL-1a-37), a few 9s and 10s just for the lols. Although from what I've seen Tier 8-9 seems to be the favourite in NA prime time from my experience. Not sure how the lower tiers are going. I mostly dogfight air-to-air killing as many as I can to rack up as much superiority points. Haven't really tried to mix it up with air targets and ground. Would be curious to see how many out there mix it up and see if they get more points that way. I've chosen mainly allies due to the majority of my premium planes being on the allies side than axis. As of today (9/6/17) Allies won and gaining the extra crates for the win sure does help. With the huge boost in points Axis will have a considerable lead tomorrow. It seems obvious what most people will choose then.

 

Anyways poll away! What's the most crates you have gotten in Thor's Hammer event? Post Below! And Good hunting :playing:

3 Crates + 3 for being on the winning side. 4th crate would be hard because you need 300 points to get it.

 

Generally high tiers and a mix of GA and HF works best/quickest.  The problem with HF/LF/MR is that you are limited by the number of planes on the other side, ad you have a lot more people on your side to share the kills.  It is quicker/easier to rack up points and thunder medals because there are more GT points available.

 

I usually play a mix of HF/LF/MR for the first 2 hours, but to get that 3rd crate I grind a GA for the last hour.

I normally can get two within first hour by playing Allies and spamming GA (mostly NC 1070 and some IL-40P). Considering how easy it is to get Thunder and rack up on raw supremacy points Allies's GAs are more or less the best when you are in a hurry (I play for a single hour to get 2 boxes, or even 15-30 mins for one box and go back to bed). Although, I have seen oversaturation today when half the entire team are GAs...I just go shoot the bots' GA that match...

 

Playing Axis means that plane kills are the main source of crate points given how sub-optimal German GAs (at least 265 and 329) are at ground pounding and how little ordnance can their HF/MRF carry.

 

I'd say that within 3 hours one can get 3 boxes easily as long as they can perform decently, on either side.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I get 10 crates originally, and then that doubles on off times, so I get 2 million crates. I get this all by stat padding in an HG 3 ;)

3 crates max in 2 hours. Your side wins, you get the max allowed 6 crates to open

Flying GA's you will get the highest points to earn a crate faster (most likely 14-18pts on average per game)

Now if you get a thunder and an ace in a GA you will get around 25-28pts per game

IF you fly any other plane and receive an ace you will get as much as earning a thunder in a GA (12-16pts average)

You get 1-2 kills in a non GA plane your looking at a low 4-6 pts per match

When you face all bots (flying GA), have few GA planes you will increase your point match (as bots don't usually turn fight)

When you face real players (flying GA) then it's most likely you'll be in a dog fight with another GA and it depends on who wins who'll get the most points that match

 

High tiers you have to wait a 2 min average

Mid tiers you can get a game pretty quick

All tiers 4-10 during Thor hour are pretty decent. Lot's of new players in tiers 5-6

For me it is one crate and a second if my side wins. The grinding in the Japanese Threat event burned me out and I still am not playing anywhere near the amount that I did before that event so am limiting my play during this event.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

You can get 1 crate in 2 matches within 15 minutes or so given a favourable condition.

Two thunders or aces will do it and although if you are unlucky you are looking at five to six matches but still not pushing far into grinding.

I can earn 12-14 pts in an F2G if I get a Destroyer with three 16 pt ships.

 

I go in low and fast, offload all my ordnance, and one of two things happen....the enemy stays high and engages the rest of my team while I climb back up behind them...or they all follow me down to the deck, and my team goes on a feeding frenzy.

 

I usually fly my P47N, F2G, and Seafang until I get my 2nd crate, then fly my GAs to get the 3rd crate.

Sometimes my side wins and I get 6, but I've never gotten less than 3.

 

EDIT:. Just bought an XP72..... MADVORTEXAN swears by it....we shall see.

When playing this event I've been only playing allied side and only flying my ussr ga's due to me playing on a non gaming laptop. I usually get 2 crates if we lose, more if we win.  I have been attacked by multiple bot German ga's in battle. Sometimes they only shoot you when passing them, other times they will chase you for a bit. Other times they will chase you the whole game. I've never died by a German bot ga though. It was a first seeing them chase me a I got a thunder and then some, while the bot ga trying to kill me. I've also had a lot of humans in heavies and fighters kill me first.

Well, they give significantly less gold this time around...back then gold came in at the least 200-package...now you can even get 10 gold...guess they compensate this by being somewhat more liberal with giving out planes (and blueprints)...

I could not answer your poll, my answer would have been; zero crates. 

I live and play from another time zone, so no crates for me. 

 

THANKS WARGAMING!

The Japanese Threat flashbacks are why I only aim for a single crate and then go do something else, typically WoWS for the rest of the night.

 

What really sucks is you don't get the bonus crate if you didn't earn on if your side wins. I got screwed in what proved to be my third and last match because of a border running Krupi wannabe, but not anywhere near as good, that never engaged so I couldn't get back in the que for one more match, 19/20. I did get the SU-9 blueprint on Friday night but the mission requirements were stupidly over the top for a 24 hour mission. The first of three stages was 40 ace, thunder, etc!  I did have enough gold to buy my way through but could they couldn't have been more obvious in the money grab.
