On the dev diary video that one chick mentioned you had to work together to get these prizes/rewards etc. Assuming that means Player vs AI. As far as I can tell from the patch notes and on that link it seems like business as usual with the 3 game modes against 10% players 90% bots.

How does the 2.0.6 patch delay effect this event? Is the event still on?

We expect the patch to be released before the active phase of the event starts, so it should not be affected.

The active phase of the event starts tomorrow. It means that all missions will be available only when the phase starts

Block Quote

Phase 1: 
August 23 19.00 ET / 16.00 PT to August 24 24.00 ET / 21.00 PT

 

Till that moment you can only get, for example, Operation Orders from Special Supplies for Tokens, but the event itself is not running with all its missions and goals.

:facepalm:"From August 22 to September 16, fight in different game modes..."

The event either starts on one day (August 22) or the other (August 23)...not both.

An "event" without activities is not an "event", it is either an advertisement for an "event", or a sham "event" BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING TO DO, I.E., NO ACTIVITIES.

This seems to indicate that a sham event will occur for 24 hours prior to the real (active) event on 23 August.

Thank you for the convoluted info on a confusing situation.

:facepalm:

Technically, the whole event is divided into 4 stages listed in the article:

 

I: Reconnaissance

II: Offensive

III: Replenishment of Supplies

IV: Maintaining Positions

 

Each stage has peacetime (Mon-Thu) and wartime (Thu-Sun - approximately, as there are some timezone changes). Wartime is an active phase of the stage and all special missions are available during this active phase only. But you can process your Operation Orders during this peacetime and according to the Lore this peacetime is the time to prepare to the active phase. So technically these days are part of the event, but not active.

Is it just me or the mission is pretty hard?? (in every type of planes)
stage1: 5 wins  is OK

stage2: 4000(+) capture points is pretty time  comsuming. I spend most of my time today(6-8)hours just to finish stage2.( btw I play multirole ) It's just exaushing....

stage3: First Line Warrior Achievement  
            
I think it's pretty situational. It has to have a big map so the game can last longer. By the time I got to stage3 players decreased at this hours. Meaning most of my game is 1 v 1 .  So bot and  RNG god pretty much                 decide the outcome. Ex: I played several games sometime bot just screw me over no metter how hard i tried to cap.   : (

I think the mission need to adjust the difficulty. Players have to spent tremendous of time to complete. As this go on  the game just lose its original intention....FUN  : (   more like a task or work.

PS: I get a  quest to get tier5 premium german fighter. stage2 need to get "150" enemy fighters !!   As a player that's too much for a tier 5 planes. Makes me think  you are unwilling to let players to get  the task done.(100 may be OK )  Of course players can skip by using tokens.....a lot of tokens. Rationally It's just not balanced regarding the tokens players have to spend (stage1 12 tokens stage2 20 tokens ....too much)

So... Guess the extent of this is the "combined" effort meter-thingo-muh-bob at the top in hangar with capture points. Guess it doesn't matter which side you are. Players just so happens to be on a the same collective "goal" to get rewarded wat... 1 crate?

 

Not gonna lie... when it was pitched in that video I was imagining like a Player vs AI stuff with an interesting twist. Maybe a timed event or something where we all would jump into one battle and shoot down some of those Vet Bots! And maybe the occasional WG-staff players here and there... but nahhh!

One thing about the event. I had over 1100 tokens. I have used 200. I have three bombers and a bunch of material and 900 extra gold. Something to spend the tokens on at least.

Why 1? Achieving Global Goal doubles the crates earned by completing aircraft type missions (i.e. fighters, bombers, etc.). The more type missions completed, the more additional supplies you get.

The better question to ask your players community:

 

"How do we increase the motivation of players to play our game more?"
 

I'll give you a hint - It's not events.

I'll give you another hint - It's got something to do with 2.0.5.

 

I gotta hand it to the devs though. It's taken them about 2 months to expand the new equipment updrade systems with the Reassemble mechanic which is a nice addition. I guess it's gonna take another 2 months for the next content into the new specialist configurations.

It's a tough grind for a crate. And the progress reset kinda sucked, I get grade 2 frequently on my Tornado and I don't feel like doing the whole thing again tbh.

 

tldr lewt crates are hard

Anyone happen to know or know where I can find the list of operation orders that are available for the event? I agree with several of you though on the event that completing the events is a pain. 5 wins is fine; if you can get a half decent team it shouldn't take to long, but otherwise it takes forever and the 2 and 3rd section is time consuming and luck.

The obvious answer would be in-game top left UI next to tokens. If you're looking for a big list of possible operation orders you can obtain during this event I haven't seen nor heard of a link that shows such info. From what I can tell it's focused on the new USSR bombers and some of the premiums ranging from lower tiers to higher tiers. The most recent 2 ops I got was the Pe-2 and the 109TL. Activated one just to see the mission info, which btw is another silly design flaw. You should be able to see the mission requirements before even thinking of activating the ops. order... :facepalm:

 

And you guessed it, I let it expire because of reasons already stated above. Not sure how long the 109TL will remain in the Ops order list but I doubt I'll have enough motivation to do it. I've heard its got some real big hoops and hurdles of missions just to complete in under 24hrs without tokens. Just read on reddit one guy spent ~10 hours just to get that premium... wow. Is this the idea of fun to WG and these devs?
