Rewards came through :)

But something a bit weird seems to have happened with the crates.

 

I haven't opened any but only 4 show up as Available.

From the Notice section it looks like one auto-opened & gave me 3* Pneumatic Control & an Advanced Boost Injection but shouldn't there be a 3rd item?


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

Did not get my premium days (5) yet.  Thought I only got 4 crates, it said I should get 5, but then, ah ha!... It must've opened my first crate automagically because I got some type of equipment thingy that was not part of the rewards...

 

Maybe need to log off and back on to see premium time?  Usually that happens automatically.  

 

[Edit]  Nope, logged off and back in and still no premium time.

My points for mastery would be 36200 but apparently playing for 1 day with desert put me at #2 for perseverance :medal:

This event was bunk, I would like to know just how many hours some of these guys are playing because I played about 2 hours a day each day (I have a life) I never came in less than 3rd in any match, and I was averaging 12k in my level 8 spit and just barely scraped in the persistent category.

they need to make something that a guy who doesnt live online will have a chance because right now I think the criticism that only a few people will have a shot at this is very true. I don't think I am special, I am a pretty solid player who usually ends up top 3 in every game so the guys who don't? will have zero shot and I apparently will only have a shot if I give up on having a life lol
If at first you don't succeed, give up loser, you suck.

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?

this is exactly why I dislike events like this. I played way fewer games had a much higher average score and somehow ended up 15 or something because some people have much more free time lol

got some gold and 20k free xp out of the crates.  And had a lot of fun in the Fw 57.   Had no idea that it was as good as it is.

Top 5 is where I wanted to be, so that worked out.  But it seems easy to play the system to collect the chevrons required to get the top prize.  I got 3 this round in period III, but for example if I had participated in Period 2 as well and didn't do as well as I did, I could have earned 2 chevrons in Period III and 1 or 2 chevrons in Period II.  But, they do have the option for the skilled players to battle it out in a minimum number of games rather than it being totally about accumulation like the perseverance option.

Did anyone get their premium time for this?  I finished 6th in Period II under Perseverance.

 

Based on the rewards, I should get 5 days premium time.  Just wondering if they are behind on that or, if you did get it, please let me know.  I don't want to launch a support ticket if the premium time is coming SOONTM

 

Thanks for any feedback.

 This event was bunk, I would like to know just how many hours some of these guys are playing

 I admit I no-lifed it, played 110 battles across the 4 planes I had, 50 of them in F4U-1.

 

But as I posted up-thread that was way overkill.

Just my first 10 F4U-1 battles would have got me 18th in Period II Mastery.

 

I think I needed to play a bunch of battles in the different planes to find which one I was going to do best in, though I did figure it would be F4U-1 since I'd been playing it a bunch already in the immediate run-up having only recently purchased it & been getting a bunch of big scores with it.

 

My first 20 battles in F4U-1 would have earned me 6th Period II Mastery with 28200 or 16th in Perseverance with 44525.

So for next round I'm going to target doing 20 battles in the plane I figure I'll do best in.

Can't promise I don't no-life it again though, since I've got no life & I'm now seeing the Reit favourite JL-1A-37 as a plausible goal if I maintain effort.

 

 

@bobby, yes I got my 7 days premium time, it was the icon change top-right of the forum page that clued me the rewards had been given out.

OK I figured that out: the weekly crates are Special Supplies & seem to always have 3 items, these were just normal Supply Crates so I guess 2 items is normal for them.

That is why there are 2 categories for this COMPETITION :

   Mastery for highest score

   Perseverance for the most played

Personally I played I think the last count was 44 games in the F94 and got 5th in perseverance. 

 That was about all I could stand to play. Could have easily played more since I am a no lifer.

I was beat out by others who probably played less than me and scored higher.

 

That is the nature of competitions. The highest score and best of the best are the winners.

That is the point of any game. To be the best. To prove yourself worthy of being called KING.

The title to force all minions to bow before you.

 

Its a competition, a game.

There will be more of them in the future and you simply will improve your skill and become better.

Then you will be crowned king.

 

or not

If 49 battles (~6 hours) = 126k points, then that means no one is even trying to grind for perseverance (or they're getting put into the mastery category. desert probably has 400k+ but he got put in the mastery category)
