Huh. 16th on Perseverance of all things. I didn't think I'd played that much but then again, looking at the Mastery Leaderboard, I'd probably have been in 19th or 20th.

 

Well, I've gotten my P-39N-1, so now I can goof off for the last weekend.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Congrats winners!  I'm bummed- I missed the Ki-94-I by less than 1000 points on perseverance.  If I had only played 5 more battles...  Or stuck with the P.228 instead of wasting 10 battles on a stock P.1056...  On the bright side, the 2 additional chevrons gets me at least the Hurricane IId in the Fall Campaign.

Hmmmm.....pretty sure my 10 best battles number is off, there is no way I did that well. I did rack up about 35 k on  Perseverance so I suppose I'd get 3 chevrons anyways, but you might want to re-check those numbers.

 

  Looks like the same issue on the Russian Server as well:

Yes, this is true. We'll check everything up once again. Players who already are mentioned in tables will still receive their rewards but if someone is lacking his prizes he will get them, do not worry.

Oh this is so frustrating!!! If the servers were just better by a little tiny bit, would have been in the top 5. This is SO ANNOYING. The servers cost me the top 5. SO SOO MAD!!!!

Top Mastery whaaatdah?! :unsure:

My count gives me only 8375 for top 10 which would be a more believable 11th Mastery.

 

61830 by my count would be 2nd Perseverance though.

 Edit: OK cool.

Happy enough that I would have ranked 2nd in Perseverance anyway :)

Yeah, the server lagging was more apparent this time around. Usually was bad for a battle then ok for a awhile. I gave up a few times and closed the game, only to come back hours later with the same lag still going on. 

 

And the score points do seem a little off. My count(52,095) versus whats on the scoreboard(49785) are 2313 lower. With a average 336(52,095/155) points per battle, that is almost 7 games not counted. I made sure I played within the event times and do not understand where an 1.5 hours of games went. It doesn't change my position this time, but could have cost me placement on the scoreboard if the scores were closer.

 

On that note, does the 23:59 PST end time count battles STARTED by that time, or battles ENDED by that time. I gambled and started a battle at 23:58 PST, got 440 cap points.

Event has been lots of fun, I enjoy the game completely. War Gaming get an A+ for fun, A+ for events. I've played a few games online and never have i run across such a great player base, with only a few exceptions that like to complain and troll. I can see many new players that are coming in from other games. Keep up the hard work and lets grow this game. Oh, one thing, Bump up the server to handle the new players we don't want to lose our new players due to tech issues. last four days have been really bad. Getting booted from server, no damage, planes sliding sideways and flying backwards (All lost packet issues i would assume) because it happens to everyone in the game at the same time so it has to be server side. Looking forward to the last event, Good luck to all and <o.

I am annoyed, I know I played several games in the ki102, and had some pretty crazy scores, but I couldnt play much because of the crazy lag and teleporting planes, I know I played more than enough games to qual but I can't see what my score was. I don't think I am going to bother with these events anymore, its all geared towards the no lifers anyway
If at first you don't succeed, give up loser, you suck.

Eh. I flew maybe 20 matches total because I had a horrible migraine and no migraine meds til monday. I still pulled out a chevron, 500 gold, a week of premium, etc. I can't complain for barely playing. Part of it is having the right plane for your skillset and in this case it was geared to those who are good at Boom and Zoom. You could get on the lists with a minimal # of games, but you better be good at controlling the ebb and flow to maximize your points per game. I'm kinda surprised I got on at all, given that I didn't think I had by my own estimates. Admittedly it shows me fairly well dead pegged where I thought I was points wise. A little lower, but I could have been off since I was paper and penning it with a migraine. Still, my point is it's not for the no lifers, though they definitely have the advantage of sheer attrition of numbers.. but you -can- still rack up rewards. If I can get 2 more chevrons in the next event I'll get a P-39N-1 (I already own it, so it'll be gold.. but that's not an insignficant amount of gold). I've been sick of missed all but one of the event weekends for various reasons and it has blown chunks. It also reminded me that skillful minimal input can still reward you if you play to your strengths and remember to give it a whirl at least. 

Given that they seem to have had an error with stuff, I imagine a lot of people will see their rewards and chevrons increased as well.

Just my two cents.

I really hope there is some sort of compensation at least for the server being down throughout part of the event. If that lag wasn't there, I'd be able to have made the top 5. But when that lag was happening, I could barely manage to get 5k pp which really messed with the competition for me. robbed me of tier 7 premium too :'(

The current number of chevrons has also changed according to the updated list.

Woohoo!  Somebody above me must've moved from Perseverance to Mastery on recalc, so I bumped up to 5.  Yay- new plane!

(I also feel less bad about my Mastery total since the top scores came down a lot)
