TOKENS!!!!

 

looking at 4~5 hours per day of flying for all of the loot crates Surprise Mechanics for decent pilots.  Duffers are really going to have to work for all 3 sets.  Still, nice to see this weekends extra rewards.

if my math Google's math is correct, it'll take 75 battles to reach 600k, if you average 8k per battle     in 4 days     

 

plus, this kind of stuff attracts ubers like flies to a dead possum, which means i won't be averaging 8k

 

 just eff me now

And a cherry on top is no-more-x3 for your first victories. Nicely done, WG, keep that way! :trollface:

EDIT: it appeared now. How sad, I expected to relax from grinding ))

This weekend mission is useless to me and I imagine 90% of Warplane clients/customers. Fine for people who have no life other than playing Warplanes. For the rest of us that have family, other interests, real life etc etc etc...this is far too difficult. Requirements should have been at least 50% if not 25% of what they have been set at. What the hell are tokens good for now anyways other than premium time? We used to have two Semi-permanent Operation Orders that could be completed for the XP-55 and the Vampire that could be completed with tokens. That made sense and was useful. Now we only see very limited Operation Order missions that must be completed in a very short period of time and completing them with tokens is NOT an option as the whole idea is that Wargaming wants to force their clients to pay them lots of extra $$$ to be able to obtain the premium planes offered. Total 100% greed with no thought or care what the majority of their client base wants or needs.

You claim to speak for '90% of clients/customers' and/or 'the majority' but I see no proof of that.  You certainly aren't speaking for me.

 

Why not do a poll?  Or would that burst your preconceived idea balloon?

Actually 94 is mostly accurate. 

I am sure that 90% of us have more to do than spend the required time to achieve the almost unsurmountable numbers of achieving all that is required. 

He is wrong in the idea that tokens are useless. 

I do not think he knows that you can use tokens to specialize planes.

Upon further reflection I have to somewhat agree with you and the OP.  This is rather a grind but I think the percentages are overstated.  And there is no win requirement which makes it easier to not be too mad at the potato who occupies the high tier slot on your team or the 50% players who fight at the central airbase ignoring the 2 Military Bases.  (both of which I have experienced this morning in back-to-back battles)

One should never concern themselves with team make up.

Lettuce tomato Heinze 57 and french fried potatoes big kosher pickle and cold glass beer

god all mighty CARRY THE DAM MATCH

 

When you are concerned about the other players on your team then it is harder to concentrate and carry

or even get the lyrics right

Depending on player skill, this weekend's event would take 3 days of flying 4-6 hours to get all the rewards.  *very rough estimate*  (top-tier players a bit less, but we're talking good to decent pilots here.)

 

That isn't outside my usual weekend gaming sessions. 

 

yvmv.

 

(sadly, I'm out of town one day this weekend, otherwise I'd all in for the full set.)

 

still, tokens are nice, and the loot crates might actually return good stuff.  A bit of gold wouldn't do me any harm. . . .

Oh, boo fkin hoo. 
I've got "real life" interests too. I'll get what I can, and leave the rest. Some is better than none, and I'm not inclined to whine about virtual goods I'm not getting for free.

I always look forward to token grabs but whoever calibrated this one drank some really strong coffee.

 

100/200/300 sure

200/400/600 nope

 

Casual events, great.  Blowing a good potion of the weekend?  Nope.  But that’s just where I’m at w this game.

Got 250 gold, 3 Intensive training, 5000 free XP and a lot of parts, and the tokens. Got 200 gold and a bunch of parts with the weekly missions crate. Weekly missions is 3000 points per day. One mission per day. Average time 7 minutes. 49 minutes for weekly missions. At least 60 battles for Chasing Tokens. 7 hours. Should have been half the required points. Too much of a grind.

I hit a little over 400k this morning, probably won't get to 600k without some serious bomber blasting. Picked up 25k fxp and a bunch of parts so far.

I was out of town on Saturday, so just went for the first two sets of crates.  First set actually had better returns than the second, total was 4500 Free XP and the usual mix of parts, equipment and consumables.  Sadly, no gold nor planes.

 

One memorable game this morning, 4v4 at Tier 6.  Seven of the eight humans were in heavies, including two Swoose per side.  Talk about a slaughter fest!

Actually it was 5vs5. But yes, 7 heavies were involved, with four 54's among them. Fun battle.
