Why can't you put a text version in this forum post as well as the link?  A synopsis perhaps?

The link is not broken. The portal is under maintenance now to prepare it for the update.

  • Over 3,000 personal points for a single battle — 1 candy.
  • Over 5,000 personal points for a single battle — 1 candy.
  • Over 10,000 personal points for a single battle — 1 candy.

Will this mean 3 candies if a pilot scores 10K points. If it is 1 candy for over 10K points then flying simple battles in tier 4's will be quicker and easier to achieve candy. 

 

If it is 3 candies then I will remain on tier 10.

 

Please can you clarify this point please.

can we do the 3000 and the 5000 personal points over and over to get the candy instead of the 10,000 personal points.

I don't get it. Does this mean there aren't holiday crates to be purchased just crates to be won?

Also why wouldn't you list what you can actually win? Like a specific amount of gold, premium time, xp  etc.

  • Pilots with skill points for these aircraft
  • Promotional aircraft Hawker PV.3, Tier III, U.K. fighter
  • A unique pilot for this aircraft
  • Paint schemes, nose art, and emblems
  • Gold
  • Days of Premium Account
  • Free Experience
  • Equipment
  • Materials
  • Credits
  • Consumables
  • Hangar slots
  • Bunks in Barracks
  • Holiday Supply crates
  • Economic consumables (boosters)

Afaik, that list is the things you can win from the marathon (Candies)... not the loot boxes.

 

Notice how it mentions loot boxes as one of the rewards... those likely have a separate, and as of yet unreleased, list of rewards.

 

There's also going to be Santa Bags in the premium shop...

What if I'm on a sugar free diet? Then what? lol
My status is "Senior Airman". Is that because I'm old? :sceptic:

bah humbug

 

 

 

I felt that.

 

Plainspeak please. How many wonderful candies in order to win the fair aircraft? Is it a carrot on a stick?

 

Daily missions  are heavily weighted for candy acquisition -- aren't those the things that are impossible to complete for us mid-tier and upper-mid-tier grinders? We kind of just tune 'em out?

 

I don't mind buying a premium plane or three (already have) and I wish I had the disposable income for that tier-VIII French attack aircraft (among others incl. a few nifty very keen really boss groovin' jets) -- really I do -- but right now in all good conscience I must grind for those tiers.

 

No complaints other than tongue-in-cheek echoing "bah humbug."Just don't want to get excited over nil.

 

EDIT: You know what would have been impressive? If they'd said "Merry Christmas! everyone gets a free tier-VII airplane!":honoring:

true but atleast the event maybe good. I'll give it a shot and I am looking forward to the tier 3 UK bi plane and the pilot. I might not do the venom or the other plane missions myself

Please can you clarify this point please.

 

Clarified in game is it's cumulative.  So... 3k = 1 total cane, 5k = 2 total canes, 10k = 3 total canes.  

You also get canes for completing dailies. 2 - 3 - 4 for each segment of the 1 - 4 - 10 dailies.  So completing each part of the 1 token daily gets you 2 canes.

Santa's Bags with the description of their contest will appear later when they will be available for purchase.

 

Candy pieces are cumulative, you are absolutely correct! Thus for the battle with 10k of Personal Points you get 3 Candy, and Candy are rewarded for each stage of each Daily Missions. Also soon will appear the possibility to buy certificates for Candy to skip separate stages of the event or all at once! :honoring:

Dec 22? Saturday? Steam sale just started, WoWS just started a big campaign, and AW has a 3 month campaign started so how much money will be left in most peoples entertainment funds by Saturday?  Not much.
