Did another 10 battles in the Corsair, feeling hella burnt out but did get another 2 entries into my top 10 including the top score by 275pp.

Brings my top 10 average over 3000 and the cumulative over 110,000 so I think I'm done.

I have just been spamming the F-94 Starfire since the beginning of the event.

Specialized it, researched the next plane. Now going to spam it some more.

If anything I hope to at least get so many points accumulated I get the super secret prize of

" get a life medal, you play too much".

I think I am in the neighborhood of 40+ battles in it.

 

Just trying to win the 3 chevrons for this week.

*sighs* I've been sick all weekend and just sleeping. Hopefully I can make up ground in the next few event segments, because I didn't play any really this time.

Well I've done 10 battles in each of the 4 planes I have so I'm in for all categories.

Will probably run at least another 5 battles each to get some bad battles out of the average & incase it started later than I thought.

 

I thought you could only get in one of the rankings.

 

Just checking the event page to make sure. Found this under the note section: "You can not be in the winners list for two or more ratings simultaneously"

 

Edit: Just realized you're probably just trying to maximize your chance of getting a ranking in any period. Just ignore this post lol

Also his chance at the -highest- ranking, as they award what you ranked highest in. So let's say he manages to rank in 3.. but two of them are toenailed in and one is middle of the pack.. it's the middle of the pack one you'd get. Even if you're a top-20 player it would behoove a person to play in more than one category unless they're trying to capture the grind aspect.. and even then..

Just noticed the end time is not the server reset time early am on Monday.

Why can't WG do the simple thing and have times be the normal server reset times?   Why is stuff like this so needlessly convoluted.   Just make all the times the server reset time.

When did Wargaming ever do anything that makes sense.

I've always wondered why they pick the most complicated path.

Went into this event thinking I would give it a try and see how I do.  Ended up playing 70 matches in the Spitfire XIV which was pretty difficult only playing one plane this entire weekend.  The Spitfire was actually the only plane on the list that I had in my hanger.  Depending on how well I do on this segment will determine how much effort I put into the remaining ones.  I don't expect to be in the running to get the top prize but am hoping to score the JL-1A-37 or the Kostikov 302.

 

Will each of the 6 parts be set up in the same way or will they change up the planes and criteria to earn points?

Probably, some planes can be used twice or more but they will mostly be different as well as criteria.

Please note that there's no way to track your in-game progress. Results will be announced in the 7-day timeframe.

Actually you can track your own progress easily by taking screen shots of the battle results and calculating what your own average is.  You just wont know what other peoples averages are till they announce it.  I'm not sure why they did it this way, they have live results in past events.  But anyway, it is good to always keep track of your own stats.  WG has proven unreliable in the past, and you can always follow up with a ticket, especially if you have the screen shots to back it up.

My best guess is that with the correct math stuff a simpleton could figure out population...

At least for that time period...

So, like Voldemort... we don't speak of low pops

Btw, dude gots no nose, wth is that sick shiz

:amazed:

 


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Although some theories can be amusing somehow, the reason is as simple as ABC (sorry, ABC I don't mean you, it's an idiom!) and has been mentioned multiple times. These events are not like Secret Trials but they are the same as For King and Country, Lightning vs Friedrich, etc. They are created and held on the side of the Community team.

Probably because the normal events have fixed goals/missions, while these community events compare your results with everybody else's to create a top 5, 20, 30 or whatever.

The first battles of the Fall Campaign have ended! The best pilots have shown their best moves, and their mastery and perseverance will be marked with their well-deserved rewards. The supply team is on the way!

 

This time our event attracted so many skilled pilots that all places are taken, but do not be discouraged: new battles will bring some new heat! My warm congratulations to all participants and, of course, the winners! You proved your supremacy in the sky of World of Warplanes.

2nd on Period II Perseverance wow I really overshot my target :amazed:

Only a couple of F4U-1 battles short of 1st even...

A huge gap back to 3rd.

 

Lots of familiar names from ingame & forum but also plenty I don't recognise so not just usual suspects getting rewards :)

 

Pleased to see my calculated score matches the WG calculation, I was feeling pretty sure I had started anything up to 24hrs early so played extra battles to be sure.

 

@Blindfold thanks for posting the scores too :)

 

By my calculations I've been excluded from top 20 for all the other categories, would have got:

18th in Period I Mastery with 20825

18th in Period I Perseverance with 32725

3rd in Period II Mastery with 30700 but my Beaufighter score of 17800 would have missed out

8th in Period III Mastery with 27875

13th in Period III Perseverance with 49675

 

For next event its clear I can rank with making a lot less of an effort.

 

Just the first 10 battles in F4U-1 and Spit XIV would have got me top 20 rank in 3 categories:

18th in Period II Mastery with 22025

14th in Period III Mastery and 19th in Period III Perseverance with 21650

I certainly did not expect this.  Congrats to everyone that made it on the lists.
