Was able to grab up 19 tokens in the latest event while having an absolute blast, props to wowp for making this opportunity available to the players!

Some people really play a LOT.

 

I got bottom bracket on both Period I & III = 3 + 5 tokens.

Surprisingly high 16th on Period II = 15 tokens + 500 gold + 5000 freexp.

Not bad not bad.

 

Wasn't particularly trying, just happens that my current rotation has a bunch of Period II stuff atm & I ran dailies + a few Test flights figuring out Equipment config stuff.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

If you examine the issue, you will find the top players are doing a minimum of around 30 games a day AND they are concentrating on one particular period.  Personally I think this shortsighted because the X5 XP, in the long run, is worth far more than the token/xp/gold prizes.

 

I played all 23 bombers everyday to a win for that X5 XP.  Sadly, one day I missed a victory in 4 bombers.  Wound up with 23 tokens, 4500 XP, bit of gold AND that 5X XP for those bombers.

Agreed. I used the event to pick up 30 to 40 thousand XP on each of 17 tech tree lines I'm working on. That's insane for one weekend.

I was on for about 2 hours fri, sat and Sunday.     Got pummeled all three days.     Finally shut off the PC after the 21st win


promptly sold the tainted thing, because it would always remind me of last weekend

but...   I'm off tomorrow and most of the ghost killers should be working/schooling on a Thursday morning

Well ... 

 

I always like "events" cause it shows WG is willing to at least invest some attention to planes which really is a foundation that has to be maintained if the game is to be healthy.  

 

In some of these events, I've been able to walk away with some goodies but this last weekend, the prizes were bigger so the range of "winners" was smaller.  I don't really play enough to push my ranking into the 250 or less range so, no prize for me.  That's ok though.  I did, at the last minute push through to get my 21 wins and that neat little biplane so I am a happy Biplane Girl. 


"Don't mess with me because I can squish you like a bug, that is If I should decide to notice your existence in the first place".  

 

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

I slacked off. I think over the course of the event from Thursday night on I played 70ish games and only got 16th.

I slacked off mostly because the prizes weren't that interesting for playing in an event that many days long. Felt like the rewards for a one or two day event, not a 4-5 day marathon.

Still though, I love events and I love event weekends because so many people come out I've never seen and because it -is- a little.. something extra?

I feel like people'd probably try even harder if some of these medals for events could be displayed on your plane as an extra little bit of flair. Not something that gives XP or anything, just.. you get a little spot to display your favorite couple or three medals.

Much to my amusement people expressed shock seeing me flying a multirole in Tier-1(I-5).Was pleasantly surprised when I saw todays stats that showed I had a 404 plane frag total for yesterday (12th) with an 9+ per flight average at my usual 4-12 fps!

It was good to see so many humans.  I concentrated on T8+ and ended up at freakin' 29th place.  So much for my hard efforts, but then again, I am terrible and have yet to flight much (or at all, not sure?) in 2.0.  

 

Someday, I will get on comms and flight up.  For now, I still like to listen to music and people talking to me is a distraction.  That, plus my inability to talk coherently after a couple of thangs hit my system. 

 

Anyway, it was a fun event just to see a lot of human participating.

 

I am willing to bet if WG did X5 weekends without all the hullabaloo, we would still see more humans in the game.  I know next time I will take fuller advantage of the X5 as I neglected some T6/T7 planes that I need to upgrade.
