This event is not in-game or server side event, this is a kind of activity organized from the side of the Community team (me in particular), that is why there's no progress shown in the client. This kind of events is quite common for CIS and is sort of a test flight here. If you like them on the whole there's a chance to have more of the like activities. Of course, with the different conditions and prizes. I would be really grateful for your feedback to make any further events better. :honoring:

The Venom is a piece of crap, slow with no stopping power, you can barely go 1v1  against T5 and you're hopelessly outmatched against T6.    And it's ugly

Even though I have the plane, I resent having to fly it to meet the conditions of the event.  I will not participate.

 

:kamikaze:

 

I should clarify.  I don't mind when an event is limited to a certain class or classes of plane but it is too restrictive in this particular case, IMO.

The only problem I have with this event is that it is restricted to those players who can spend 3 weekdays & evenings playing this event, while players who work, study or have other real-life business, can not. They would have to cram 30 battles into (part of) 3 evenings. That in itself is difficult enough, but the chance of ending up in the top 11 is minimal I think ... all IMHO.

I have the planes, might fly them, but not even try to 'participate' ...

AS dumb as this may sound I would have liked to have seen something like the flying saucers again . At least I knew what the target was and it was fun and not time consuming.

And everyone got something in the end.

Less events that involve a ton of grind, and only pay out a few people... more events that are rewarding to EVERYONE who puts the effort in.

 

Every time you guys make a stupid grind-fest event... I find something else to play.

 

And you guys seem to be cramming grind fests down our throats lately... so, yeah... if you can't stop doing that, you need to stop making them only pay out 10-30 people.

 

Figure out a way to reward the people that tolerate your questionable development choices.

I feel like this event catered to the more skilled players so I am not doing the event I tried for a bit but honestly ships right now is a lot more fun with the submarines and I think they should of had a event like this but made it for a week and make it a good mission like destroy 30 planes In any number of battles not the top 11.Besides that good luck to those who make to the top 11 and honestly I hope you guys can make a good Halloween event this mission is not for me so ill pass.

Events for Gold rewards are key IMHO.  Let the winners choose which premiums they want to purchase with their hard-earned Gold.  That was the way of community events in the past.  

 

I don't mind the top X players for planes.  It's a challenge, sure, but if people really want the reward, they will grind.  As said here before, things like the Venom, well... that's a pretty lame plane to do an incredible grind in order to win.  Now, 5,000 Gold to the top player with diminishing Gold as you go down lower is pretty sweet.  

 

I remember one GhostPrime put on where it was a top number of Ground Targets destroyed in a period of time and the winner got, like 5,000 Gold and the other 4 runners up got like 3,000 Gold. 

 

I think a Bomber vs. Bomber-Killer community event similar to that might encourage a certain element to play big or go home.  Say like Ground Targets destroyed for bombers and number of bombers shot down for heavy/multi/fighters with Gold rewards for the top 5 of each.  That would make an interesting dynamic.  The Gold should be significant.  Say, like 5,000 for #1 and no less than 2,000 for #5 to give a good incentive.  Gold costs WG nothing.  That more players might play and spend real $ on upgrades or Gold Ammo would probably offset the trinkets thrown at the event.  

 

[To clarify:  Bombers:  Top 5 of destroyed Ground Targets get Gold, with 5,000 for #1 and lesser Gold for 2-5.  Bomber-Killers:  Destroy the most number of bombers in any Heavy/Multi/Fighter (and any combo thereof) with 5,000 for #1 and lesser Gold for 2-5.]  So in other words, a Bomber-Killer could play any combo of planes designated as Bomber-Killer and just the end result number of bombers killed would count.  No specifying which planes qualify except for maybe Tier 4+ as per usual.  Same goes for the bombers, any combination of bombers as long as they are, for example T4+, it just counts the number of Ground Targets destroyed.  

 

Just my $.02.

 exactly. Couldn't have said it better.

 

Also, compared to other titles, in particular Ships, the missions and rewards are astounding compared to the measly stingy offerings here. Finally. after my initial attempt at this event I was up tiered 5 times by MM. Normally I switch around so MM is a bit more fair, but after being up tiered so many times in a row, and having team balance skewed, don't think I want anymore of this... not FUN, not balanced, but very good for soviet humour.

The event is over and it's time to announce the winners.

 

Period I (Hawker Demon, Fairey Fantome)

 

 

Period II (Supermarine Spitfire I, Chance-Vought F4U-4 Corsair)

 

Period III (Chance-Vought XF5U Pancake, McDonnell F2H Banshee )

 

A lot of prizes remained vacant wating for their winners. Despite the concers of impossibility to get into the top 11, you had a decent chance to win.

That moment when they can't even give away all the prizes... because people are so sick of the game they never even bothered trying.

Hey didn't you read it ; "you had a decent chance to win despite concerns" ... ?

I didn't even have time to fly the 30 battles to qualify ... I must be doing something wrong here. But, looking at the lists (only one with all 11 spots filled) I wasn't the only one.

Let me guess the planes use:

 

T III - Pancake

T II - Spitfire I

T I - Fantome - but for once I am not sure... 20mm vs bullet shower at T4 is hard to sort.
