Thanks for the fall campaign. However this wording makes me think that for 99% of players they need not even bother with it:

 

"As a reward for each event, the most skilled and persevering pilots will receive...."

 

So from this wording it sounds like this event is only going to reward the top 20 players with anything at all. Is this true? Are you really setting up a 3 month campaign for 20 players? Or is this something where average players will actually get anything at all?

Each of the six events will have more than one rating. For example, we have an event for, let's say, German and Soviet bombers. Then we'll have 4 ratings (German Mastery, German Perseverance, Soviet Mastery, Soviet Perseverance) - basically, 80 places for that particular event. Thus, to receive the Curtiss P-36C Hawk and other stuff you need to get to the top-20 at least in one of the ratings of one event. 

 

Moreover, one player can be present only at one rating simultaneously during the particular event. Regarding the example above, you can be only in one of the 4 ratings. So there are 80 places only during one of the six events.

There will be 6 events, approximately each 2nd and 4th week of the month. The first event will be announced tomorrow :honoring:

So yeah, only for top players. Average players like me might as well not even bother. Thanks. (Goes back to other games).

GIVE ME FREE STUFF REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

 

 

"Average player" does some  2,600 battle points so if you have problem being better than average then suck it. Also, try posting under your main account.

 

 

In this I'm with WG. They are giving out literally free stuff. Until now I got some 4-5 t8 premiums just by doing missions without spending a single $.. Will I be part of this event? No. Too much grind for too little reward, I prefer "personal mission" marathons.

I'm not sure I am particularly on WG's side here. It seems a bit too exclusive to get anything worthwhile. Additionally, it is spread over the course of like 12 weeks if what blindfold said is true (spans 6 event weeks with each event week being every other weekend). Granted, I have to reserve my full opinion for tomorrow to see exactly what this event is going to require the playerbase to do. I would like the JL-1 though. so i may invest heavily just to make a point later on if the event turns out to be garbage. That way I'll have some weight to my opinion when I make a video on the event. We'll see though. I too prefer the personal marathons. They feel less like a competition and more like just have fun with the game and we'll give u fun rewards in the process. I prefer personal missions though rather than competition events. I consider myself a fairly good player, but those events are just dull and boring. U have to have no life for multiple months and be a skilled player in order to have any hope of earning any meaningful rewards. Heck, even the way they did the 'special project' equipment marathons were fine. Just not a fan of that style of event with premium planes instead of special equipment

So it is exactly what I said it was. Only the top 20 players. The only difference is that it is the top 20 players in whatever aircraft group is for that week (so 4 groups is 80 players). Someone is still going to either have to play their butt off, or simply be a top 20 player in whatever plane group in order to get enough points to progress to the top levels in the later stages. But it also scales, so only the very top of these groups of 20 will get 3 tokens instead of just one. So for the average player who will never be in the top 20 of anything in this game then this event is completely worthless to them.

 

Not only that, to the above average player who can only get in the top 20 of lets say two plane groups they will only ever get half the tokens or whatever they need for the top reward. So this 3 month long event is even rather pointless for them as well. The specialist pilot who only does fighters, or only does bombers is also going to be in this group who will only ever get half the rewards of this event unless they can also be in the top 20 of another plane type consistently. 

 

In the end, this 3 month long event is worthless to the average player who either doesn't have every plane type from every nation, or is only a top player in one plane type. With barely anyone bothering to play this game anyway why would you hold a 3 month long campaign that only benefits a few players? I mean really? The top players never leave this game and barely spend any money on it now. So what are you getting by doing this? Nothing really but handouts to the same people who already get or have everything. Your not bringing new players to the game. Instead, your just pushing out more players like me who you obviously don't give a damn about because we are just average newbs. 

 

So once again, if you are an average player, or a specialist player, there is nothing really here for you in this 3 month long event.

So why has not SoldierKenJr. been perma banned yet.

Will we be compensated for the battles he causes us to lose.

Yup ran into him today and said Flip it and exited the game.

I have all the planes that you can win!.. This won't be for me at all then.. Supply crates are the only thing I can use.. And this game is way too tight on the supplies.. They take about 2/3 of them back anyway.. No jackpot screw ups that they are.. Big casino on the supplies.

You’d be compensated in gold for whichever aircraft you currently have I believe...buy another plane, or tank...

Supply crates are useful. Still think it's going to be hard to win anything but worth a shot.

Actually, a supply crate will never give you a plane you already have.  So there never is anything to get compensated for.  But maybe they will sweeten the supplies in that case but I have no real knowledge, one way or the other.

 we have an event for, let's say, German and Soviet bombers. Then we'll have 4 ratings (German Mastery, German Perseverance, Soviet Mastery, Soviet Perseverance) - basically, 80 places for that particular event.

 

I would like to hope I might manage enough to get the Hurricane IID, with split ranks I might have a chance.

 

Block Quote

 Moreover, one player can be present only at one rating simultaneously during the particular event. Regarding the example above, you can be only in one of the 4 ratings. So there are 80 places only during one of the six events. 

 How do you do that?

Do we have to choose which one we'll be pushing for?

Or you only count each players highest rank, then exclude them from the other categories?

 

If I gain enough for the P-39N-1 do I get the Gold equivalent since I already have the plane? But would get the cammo etc that I don't have?

If you take a look at the previous events of this type you can see that every player could've got into the rating if he'd simply made a particular number of battles. Even not all positions are usually taken, here - 20 and 23 positions out of two top-30, here - 11-13 and 30 out of three top-30, here - 17 and 16 out of two top-30. My point is, that every such event players say "I can't do this anyway so I won't even try" and we cannot give away all rewards we were ready to give. Simply because of the thought "Well, it's not for me, it's too hard/ I'm not good enough" when you needed to simply play 10-15 battles in three days. That's it. You don't have to sit in front of your computer 24/7 or play every battle with 30 000 Personal Points, just play a particular amount of battles on the listed aircraft and you'll be on the list. It is really that simple, it's checked and verified. 

 

Of course, I cannot make you participate if you are not interested, it's purely your choice. Still, such a perception is quite upsetting.

All aircraft will be compensated with gold if you already own them.

This one. You can try to get to all categories, you'll be placed to the category where you have the highest rank and excluded from the other ones. 

 

 You should get all listed rewards, camo included, and compensation for the plane.
