I basically seem to get a bunch of missions that are next to impossible, or would take hours of play to get one, at a single tier.   Yeah, forget it.   You know how many crates you will need to get, to get those bombers.   What a pipe dream.

 

Granted, sure, maybe I suck, or just don't understand.  But, I think my threshold for effort and time has been exceeded.

Ohh, and then there was the bugged mission I completed multiple times, it never registered.


Combat reconnaissance

So, I have got to the 75g one.
Earn 3000 points while capturing territories, in one game, 5 times.

 

Note, in the small print,, you only see if you mouseover, its only capturing enemy Territory that counts.   So, of course, I thought it was bugged and just didn't work.  (I was flying off to hit neutrals, then ended up defending)
So, I figured that out, but, still, most games, no chance.  Have not got it once yet.  No idea if I was ever close   Maybe I have just lost patience to keep trying. Maybe its easier at different tiers than I was playing?


Having said all of that, maybe the way victory points works, means our low populations makes these way too hard.   Maybe they work great on RU?  

Full teams might result in longer games, and more achievable objectives.  Maybe our games are just over two quickly to do anything?

I think they just want us to spend gold to buy tokens to buy loot crates. You'll be short a few parts near the end of the event and will be tempted to complete it. Then you use tokens to buy crates, and when you run out of tokens and the crates still don't deliver the parts you end up buying/spending gold to buy tokens to buy crates.

 

I wonder if it's easier for the old-timers who've spent a lot of time in the game. They probably know the most efficient way of grinding for loot crates and tokens, or probably already have a large pile of tokens available and ready to convert to crates.

Missions sure become loads more tedious, true. Winning 7 while being on top of aircraft damage isn't very easy (but that one's worth 10 tokens). Replacement can only be done once a day, not every 4 hours.

 

With boxes costing a flat 4 tokens with a limit of 5 a day it's easy for someone sitting on heaps of tokens. The boxes can pay out some gold and tokens too, but those are somewhat rare.

So far I have finished the 1 token missions and am still working on the 10 token mission, but I have yet to get any credit towards any of the 4 token missions at all. The combat reconnaissance missions, first 2 completed, part way through the third.

Trying to do dailies, but seems the daily is either broken or I'm not understanding the purpose. It's a do the required amount of ground damage in battles, 72k seems a bit much for 1 battle, and there doesn't seem to be any accruing as I do battles in a GA or multirole. Seems to me that maybe a better explanation or a fix might be needed.

Some missions are just that unreasonable...downing 6 defense planes in 1 sortie is pretty much you go into two bases and down at least three planes each...while four would capture the place and vaporize all the defense planes that still flies.

the rewards are totally misleading,

I expected to get a crate with a part of a bomber in it,....wrong

twice now I have had crates with no bomber parts in them,

I got 2 fire extinguishers and " next battle earn 1.5x experience" - yay

not worth the effort

I was going to try for the a26 as it at least has forward guns but i'm not going to bother now

You' might get parts for any of the bombers, if you get lucky.  I don't much care for the system, but the first part I got was for an A-26.

You can get things like gold and premium time off those boxes.

 

Just got 500 gold from one of the boxes I opened today.

Having seen this sort of thing before, I knew what to expect. So I wasn't surprised about getting crates with no bomber parts, but it does mean that completing it is extremely difficult since not only do you have to grind you're also depending on luck. It would be reasonable for the higher tier premium bomber to be difficult to achieve, but for the tier 4 and 6 bombers? Nah.

 

The point of these sort of event is supposed to encourage players to play more (look at the missions in WoWS that give away premium ships for example). But when the prize is nearly out of reach, it demotivates more than it encourages.
