Skill based comps vs bot comps for decent prizes. 

 

I sort of understand why they want people to play more battles, since the game survives on people playing battles. 

 

The disparity between rewards for skill based and battle based competitions though is rather striking. 

 

bring back art of war?

The ratings thing they've built would make an excellent basis. Maybe monthly awards. However it sort of deters people from playing more than 30 battles i guess or keeping on going with a tank if you've had a couple of crap games. Maybe if they made it your last 30 battles or something.

Art of war and the other one in late 2016 where you need to score high for 5 battles in a row are both good models. Since skill and number of battles are both contributors. Plus using XP means it most closely follows the reward system that WG intended. (Play to win vs play to WN8)

 

Then there were those that you need to score under certain conditions e.g. Ace Tanker during daily x2, which are a test of consistent performance and again, play-to-win-ness. (Sorry platoonpadders.)

 

The problem however is that most people know they can't win skill-based comps, so they want some amount of luck component. But they still want it skill-based, so to limit the number of qualifications and increase their chance of winning. Yet they don't want it too hard that they themselves have no chance of winning.

 

*In this case, luck also refers to the ability to play 24/7, since you are lucky to be born into a situation that allows you to.

Last i remember a similar comp (top tanker)

Players were removed from prizes for allowing others onto their accounts.. This is a similar if not more up there comp (due to rewards) so i can suspect any of the top 250 caught sharing account will get instant DQ. Even if it was non intended for assisting in this marathon comp.. (i think what happened to party came to mind)

Is it hard to find some time between my matches to post little texts here and there :O ? Not to mention I have already stopped playing couple hours ago considering no point of getting any more stamps, like no point in talking about the same answered topic you guys are bringing up, again and again, :D thanks for your concern though, WG will check everything. :)

A good contest but as you realise you are out of the running dropping off seems a waste of time. Would suggest a reward for hitting levels of tokens that increases as you get more (every 100 tokens). A sad part was watching 1 player who got an Intel drowning himself after a remark about matchmaking at the start, he didn't want to waste his token time.

 

A bit of thought on the rules would have been nice ie multiple people driving one account but impossible to police. Maybe a statement that it was fine to do at the start and may the most organised team win?

 

Well done to the winners.
