I'm chalking it up to enthusiasm. :D I chucked the lot to the registration thread. Happens every time.

 

So people that didn't even bother to read or follow the instructions now have a chance to win the prize over people that did read and follow those same instructions. Interesting

This is a more of an additional incentive to work on the missions. For events with heftier prizes, we can be stricter with registration. :)

So this would imply the rewards for this contest are some what insignificant ?

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

How in the hell can a reasonable person get 10 x (Win + In top 3 for exp)? Seriously I have played for 4 hours now and not a single one. I am not a bad player either.

 

Would have made sense if it was top 3 exp whether you win or lose, but both together? I've won lots and been top 3 many times but only on a loss. It's statistically ridiculous to try to get done within a day, unless you play for 24 hours straight, and frankly a load of shit. There's no way I can get this done in a reasonable amount of time before my normal work week schedule resumes tomorrow.

 

Really disappointing that the hardest one is last. I would have not wasted my time with the other two.

 

Next time list the missions in advance so people can choose to partake or not. If I knew this was today's I would have went and done something else with my weekend.

 True that this is quite impossible for leisure players to complete.

This whole marathon to win a free tank is a farce to get players to buy that remaining tokens for the missions that they cant complete. WG has successfully baited us with easy missions at the start and ramp up the difficulty suddenly mid-way so that leisure players have a hard time completing it. As they already committed much time, many players will be swayed to just get that 5 token package for 14usd...

Sneaky WG marketing 1 VS Players 0

That's exactly how I feel as well. And of course if you don't get those last couple tokens you'll have wasted your time on the missions grind entirely. I'm all for buying a good product but don't trick me into it. It just makes me want to leave and talk shit about the game.

 

As if they care though, it's all about that $ regardless of business integrity. Obviously what they do works so I guess I'm just the sucker.

Currently playing for a total of ~4 hours; 9/10 in the missions already. I just played tanks I'm more comfortable in and kept hammering away battles in them.

Uh huh. Good for you, if it's even true, which I doubt.

It's still an unreasonable mission. It should have been top 5 exp instead of top 3; or top 3 - win or lose.

Totally agree,. Top Three by Xp is a good challenge but also on a winning team.. great for Unicums and Blues but not for average palyers..

 

Currently 24 games, 12 wins and ONLY 4 of those I was top 3, been top 3 on plently of losses though and top 4 on wins..

 

after yesterdays bad session, and todays too difficult Mission, again losing enthusiasm to play..

Managed it with great frustration after 3 hours of T4 pref and T5 pref, with a T10 sky clicker thrown in.

 

The number of unicorn PzB2 plats that I saw last night was unbelievable. You'd have thought WG had some sort of event on.

I guess I was just having a shit night then. I was doing basically the same setup as you. French B1, USA T14, and USA T92 HMC.

Easy done by me using Churchill III and Type 64 - both automatically put you in top 3 if you do not die in the first minute.

Curious how many players our of 3K registered for the competition will be able to complete all 3 weekend missions.

Not so Lucky, my Internet connection is experiencing some of Telstra's finest work, and is there 1 second and gone the next 4 minutes.

So my "Irish Luck" has deserted me.  :arta:

By the amount of salt reaching the forums possibly not as many as had hoped to. Shame it's not really much of a prize if you do get picked.

Can't wait for my chance to win another experience booster (i already have over 100) and 2 more garage slots (already have 5 spare). 


WOO Such great reward for those very easy to achieve missions!
