So there are a total of 150 tanks as compensation to the 3442 players who are currently on Fame Alley.
So in effect something like 4% of players get compensated.

And when it comes down to it the auction is already less valuable for Asia and NA server players than EU/RU players  because there were no ranked battles or replacement events for the NA/Asia players to win bonds to add to their auction bonds.


Edited to correct typos for the small minded.

No worries, emotions are running high now that CW is in full swing and off the back of Thu's outage.

Honestly, an extra 125 tanks is fine. I highly doubt an hour or two of games that were already compensated in clan fame will impact all 3.5k players so much that some will fail to get a prize, even after the extra tanks are added.

Plus, an extra 25 in the auction is icing on the cake.

Gist is top players prize pool expanded. Nothing for the rest of participants ie some more bonds for those at the other end of the scale. Affected all, not just the top end did it not?

 

Can we get some compensation for our sudden drop from 40 something to 85 while watching other teams gain 4K+ mystery points? This makes the next two days worthless to us. Hope my team realises it's a mistake and continue showing up.

If it affected all, not just the top end, and it's about ranking, then can you elaborate why you'd want extra compensation.

It's about the ability to make points. Not all are going to make 1,000,000 of em, players around 1K points are just as upset at missing the opportunity at making a couple of hundred more points to buy stuff in the in game shop as someone missing out on a tank by the same amount.These guys deserve compensation just as much as the top end.

 

Most teams realised from the start tank wins were impossible so are only in it for the lesser prizes.

I mean, due to the outage I missed out on 4-5 more games and went to bed, which would have been another 5-8k points that I got no compensation for, which looks like it might be the difference in whether I get the specific reward I'm going for, same with whoever else would have been in those games.

 

Same goes for all players, no player points were compensated as WG had no way to know who would have played them, nor who would win and get more points, so it had an effect on everyone equally. 

 

Realistically only expanding the prize pool and giving clan points is all they could do.

 

If you believe WG could have somehow compensated specific players without knowing who they would have been, please do explain.

200 extra fame points for all involved would be a start.

200 extra fame, when the tank requirement goes up 2-3k a day.

And WG gives 125 extra tanks.

 

Yeah, I think WG's deal is far better.

Hopey, your persistence and dedication to these CW special events is admirable.

 

All those late nights, all the kills and damage and great play, while watching all your efforts and gains dissolve as the cursed multipliers shut you out from the prizes.

 

I tend to think that these CWs special events are clan killers. As more and more players get shut out, they give up and drift away, and have no interest in the next event because they see the system is the same and will end up in the same disappointing result.

 

Anyway You keep on going even though you are spending your time organising weak clans filled with noobs and scrubs to give them a go, with no real chance of a reward tank. I reckon Wargaming should gift you t95/Chieftain for your service to the game.

@Hopey: 200 extra individual clan points would also be disproportionate. Insignificant to top players.

 

@CelestiaLudenberg: Since WG had no way to know who would have played or how well, the best compensation was to make their existing points more valuable. The extra tanks were along the right thinking, BUT disproportionate. It ONLY helps the top players. It should have been a blanket discount on ALL rewards.

 

@Napalmer: Better deal for a few players only. Those on the verge of getting a tank. And rewarding the top clans only (who have players in that bracket). Thereby continuing to widen the gap over normal players/clans (without OP reward tanks).

 

@HexHammer: I mostly agree with your post, but “… weak clans filled with noobs and scrubs” … just want a fair playing field. And probably don’t need to be labelled such in the community forum ;)

A chieftain wouldn't really be fitting given the context of his efforts. Perhaps a special skinned churchill gun carriage would be more fitting.
