I do recall my original post is and I quote

 "The only problem I have is the split time for all these events."

and I explained why I see it as a problem.

 

Nothing in there about difficulty.

On any of the postings

 

 

 

 

That -is- part of the difficulty. It's also part of the opportunity. If you PLAY enough and well enough you can get double the rewards for PLAYING.

Rewarding those who -are- hardcore players isn't punishing the casuals.

Edited to add: Looking at the medal counts for this weekend between you and Corvus, I now understand your salt about the split. You only got to rank 2 in efficiency three times and he only managed it twice. I did it 30 times. I haven't even played all that much this event.

Umm, I think I played all of 5 battles.  The events suck, so I don't play.  In fact, I played more during the community event than the whole rest of the weekend.  Not all of us have endless time and no life.   If you think you haven't played much, you might consider the time you did play was more than the vast majority of players.  

 

Sorry about your insecurity.

Alright Corvus, make all the excuses in the world for the fact that you're provably not exactly impressive at the game.

I'll see you in the sky. :) 

Oh.. wait.. I won't.. you'd have to play.

Play more, forum less. Isn't that what you tell everyone?

Reeaallyy now ?

Time is part of the difficulty ?

Since when has time ever been a difficulty other than when you have poor time management skill.

 

Medals ? placing importance and value on an intangible set of 1's and 0's that you can't even pin

to a $2500 dollar mount is kind of a priceless joke.

Even a senior discount at McDonald's has more value.

 

Like I said before in an above post.

I got all the time in the world to play this game since I do not have to work.

I retired at 42. I can easily manage my time to make time to play the event from start to finish.

Play the entire event and bring in the 1000 Gold, I think its something like 40 crates and 10 medals.

If it was PVP I would be more inclined but against the handful of bots, not going to happen.

 

Who really wants to do that and not receive any bragging rights for playing against all humans.

Bragging rights against all bots ? really ? go play DOOM on the hardest level then brag.

Or even NO MAN SKY in VR on Survival Mode.

 

Take your troll postings and run off somewhere else.

You are becoming too much like this game.

i'm not a huge fan of events, either       i know that you spend a lot of time and effort on them, WG      i'm sorry

 

but i'll sit there all day long for 5x!     or even 4x    

 

oh wait, i do enjoy bomber escort!        but conquest?  that's not an event 

 

it's 'date night' with your wife of 25 years      make it more like date night with your 25 year old wife?

Now that is gratitude in action.

:medal: and worth more than any medal from WG.

That should pretty much end this thread .

Thousands of players complete the events, you can't.. so it must be too much and too difficult and WG should cater to your level of play capacity.

Sounds like a you problem, but go on with -your- troll self. You complain anytime someone else wants a nerf to the difficulty level of the game and guess what, time input is a required difficulty sort of thing... but then suddenly when its too much for you.. everyone must bow down and it must be made faster and easier because the almighty lostinthewoods has spoken! 

Seems legit.

:teethhappy:

Edited to add: And if you're getting mostly all bot matches then I suppose I must have all the luck, because I don't :)

Well if that certainly is the biggest failed troll attempt I've seen in a long time.

You have earned a medal for that one. :medal:.

 

Big difference between can't and choosing not to do it.

Your projection notwithstanding, you still obviously.. can't. For whatever excuse you bring up. Let's even go with the horse hockey you're saying: "Choose". Ok.... Then why complain? Oh yes.. doesn't get you any attention does it? I've noticed a trend here: Thousands of players participate and complete the events, Thousands of players keep playing the game and enjoying it... 15-20 people in the forum down-talk everything and think they are a big enough sample size that their echo chamber leaves them wondering why WG doesn't listen to them. The cognitive dissonance that requires gives me a headache.

Bless your heart sweetie, you just keep on keeping on though. It's a talent to some I suppose.

I'll make sure to send lots of thoughts and prayers. :teethhappy:

if you are getting a headache then stop taking the blue  Pfizer pills and take the red and white McNeil gelcaps.

There is that aspect, too.  It's fun to play for a while, but I just can't imagine sitting on my butt all day long in front of the computer doing nothing of value at all.  And not even having fun with/against humans.

 

Doom on Ultimate was intense.Even knowing the levels, you had to so carefully manage health and ammo.

 

In any case, it's not so much about how much time someone has to play, because for those who really want to, finding time to play is just something you do.  Like the community event - you block out an hour and a half, we laugh at each other over chat, and have fun. 

 

This event really hasn't been all that fun.  I like Attrition okay, and Bomber Escort feels like it is almost there, as far as balance goes.  But Conquest is old hat, and offers nothing new or interesting.  I'm not making time for it.  Even if it were all humans, I would only be slightly more interested, and even then, only to play at T9/T10.

Still trying to decide if I even want to play today or change my rally car to the buggy.

perhaps take a trip to the Lego Store and purchase another rally car this weekend.

Oh snap, can't do that because WG has another event this weekend that will take up all my time...not.

 

OK-OK-OK..let me stop making fun of people.

    While I don't think there are thousands, I think the number must be a higher than 300. Maybe 300 good players play this game. I keep seeing tons of names I've never seen before, and of course when I look some of them up, they are mostly players below 1,000 battles, most below 500 battles. A lot of them are pure noobs. Been losing more battles lately because my teams have been saturated with noobs. 

 

    I also gave the Perc a +1, knowing that he will back stab me at the next convenient opportunity. 

 

And I actually found more cherries in a can of fruit cocktail today than I have ever seen before! So miracles can happen!

 

Cheers!
