30 battles a month doesn't sound like 10-14 hours per day though :)


That's to QUALIFY.  I seriously doubt any of the winners played that few battles.  And to get aircraft to the point where you can win battle after battle, you have to PLAY.  And not just play, but play a lot.

300 minutes across a month (10 minute average game length). That breaks down to 5 hours in a month. 

 

 

To QUALIFY.  For the slow folks out there, it's to QUALIFY.  Not one of those folks played anywhere close to just 30 battles. LOL, just LOL.

Until your day consists of 12 and 14 hours then really.You think we have time to fly after a 12 or 14 hour day? 

Last thing I want to do after a day like that is come back to the motel or home and play a few that take a very long time.

I played very few games the last month but I'm also driving 800 kilometers a day to sleep in a hotel and do the same thing all over the next day.

Not all of us are basement dwellers that think a WR on this game will look good on a resume.

Some of us have lives and jobs.

 

 

 

30 battles a month is one battle a day. Or two battles half a month. Or like 7-8 battles 4 times a month. If you want to get any kind of rewards for not playing the game, I'm afraid I cannot help you.

I believe you know what "average" means. Just in case, that's a sum of PP divided into the number of battles. It's not the overall sum of all Personal Points earned during the month. It doesn't matter if you played 30 or 130 battles. Also, you don't need to win a battle to get lots of Personal Points. You just need to perform well. And yes, there are winners who played only 30 battles on the particular aircraft type this month.

It's always fascinating the levels people will go to in order to try to denigrate something.

I enjoy the new competition, I must have missed the announcement or I'd have been less ADHD about which planes I was flying in May and this month so far. As well as what gear/etc. I was using instead of being experimental. C'est La Vie! There's always this month!

:great:

 

Basically from what I am reading.

It is all about having a high Personal Point on a particular aircraft ( type )

So imagine of you will. That you are that good in every plane not just one particular plane.

Here is a challenge for you.

Can you get one in a bomber before me ? .... just kidding, wait till you see my bomber movie coming to a theater near you.

I'd have to start getting bomber games that last for more than 3 minutes :( Keep getting low scoring games because we cap too fast.

Well I saw the rewards I got after 20,000 battles playing the game for hours on end but now they seem just geared to getting new players and to heck with the old ones.When working I have no time to play and that can be weeks at a time.Se because the game now wants you to fly daily to complete missions the game has lost a lot of it's luster.

There is nothing for the casual player who may want to only fly a few hours a week and the other rewards are way too time consuming for some to attempt. I got lots of rewards for not flying or playing....mostly as compensation for one of the many flawed patches.

I actually thing playing a small pool of battles (30-40) probably gives you a better chance at a high average. Since there's less to average -across-.

I tend to do most of my play on weekends as i have more time, but i still don't spend multiple hours on it. I think it highly possible for even a casual player to have a chance at this. I mean i didn't even know this existed until i got notification i won something, and i wasn't doing anything different than my usual. Just fly as you can, try to do your best, and hope it comes out well. Best of luck to all.

I just looked in my Profile in the game itself.

I have one for Mult-role and for GAA earned during an event.

Spoiler

 

Personally I average about 5 battles an hour.

 

As for getting the awards. It is all about doing damage and raising the Personal Points on an individual plane.

So. Yes. You can play for a couple of hours and earn the award.

If the minimum is 30 battles then it would be easy to get if you specialized in a particular plane.

What would make it difficult is the fact you are competing with other unknowns for highest personal point average.

For example: If my average is 5 battles an hour. Over 30 days I would only need 6 hours out of 30 days. ( 30 battles )

Or roughly 2 hours spread over 3 days.

 

The key is to have the highest  average Personal Points than anyone else.

It is not really about length but performance.

Are you saying that the player needs to "Learn to play" within your statement? This is not inspiring players this way. 

BTW, are any of the winners in doing just "30 battles only" on the NA server? Which server are they from? Can you tell us on this forum? I am curious as a matter of perspective.

I could be misunderstanding your question to BF about 'learn to play' but I don't see that in her statement.

'You don't need to win' doesn't sound like 'learn how to play'.

So maybe 'you need to perform well' is what your speaking of but that doesn't seem excessive or insultingly exclusionary to me.

Handing out participation awards is OK but sometimes we like to earn something don't we?

 

As some pilots have stated in this thread these awards may be easier to earn with minimum battle count over the qualification level.

I didn't play too many more than 30 battles in my B-32 to get my award.

In my case it was getting high personal point games during The Red Comet event but with a below 50% win rate in Escort and Invasion modes if i'm not mistaken.

I probably won't earn another award but I am anxious to see the monthly results as pilots strive for and get these badges.
