I'm not on duty today and have just finished the first Russian event today.  Playing off and on since 1100 today, probably 5hrs ish solid if put together.  I have some free gold so brought my seal clubbing KV 1 a Russion footy cam.  I was making between 105 - 130 on a win and 15 - 90 on a loss, all depending on how well I did.  I used only one hour of premium account.  I didn't notice much difference, my intake of pins was about the same.

 

i also played my T25 a fair bit and was making about 60 on an average game and 10-20 on a bad one.  

 

I don't think I'll get the free wagon at the end.  It seems to be too time consuming and I don't see the next stages being any easier or less complicated but I'll give it a go.  1 stage down.

Not so impressed with the CDC anyway, and like I really need another mediocre high tier premium medium gathering dust.  I’d try for it just because it is easy to get if it were not for the time involved.  Work schedule has made this event easy for me.

There’s a high number of 4x% players.

 

Playing in a toon gives you a reasonable edge.

I did the Russian Stage, I splashed on the Eagle Camo for Churchill III and did it in circa 60 games, 4-5 hours, bit of a grind as I wouldn’t usually play that tank that much in one day but was shirking from home today so could.  Altho got bored of that and used cammo on kv-2 and t-43 too.

 

I reckon a not so good player like me is ganna have to play 2-3 hours each day of the stages to get the tank and attachment, not fussed about the latter but looks like if you do enough for the tank you get that too...

 

The free poosters and other stuf was ok, gave me enough gold certificate parts to complete a 100 gold certificate to boot :)

 

Oh, yeah, teams are usual event standard :(

I have noticed that you can still gain a lot of pins(70-100) even on a loss if you deal high damage.Which is great because im good enough to consistently deal 3k dmg games in my T62A.If the later stages are the same difficulty then its safe to say i got the CDC within my grasp.

Everybody knows that,but people are expecting to finish the event only by playing an hour or two daily and getting the CDC that way.People are just too lazy to properly grind.

If I understand it the stages are going to get harder because you only get 1 Cup at the end of this stage but all in all think you Need 15?

There are all in all 5 stages. So if I am correct it will take more time to complete stages as time goes on.

PS CDC is a fun tank but that attachment is uuuuggggllyyyy.

First stage was very easy, but as Sk8 couldnt give us an insight in the next stages, I expect an impossible grind, certainly for the last stage "England".

Yeah but as I was working shirking from home I wanted to see how long it would take to do it in 1 day so I would have a good feel for how many hours to spend on it over the two days so I can make sure I have the time...

Doh!  Didnt even look at that :facepalm:

You’re right they go 1, 2, 3, 4 and finally 5 for England, if it stays linear, I’d bet it doesn’t, I’m going to need 25-30 hours for the last stage!

This event has completely and utterly f u c k e d the game up. Team after team of window licking noobs who couldn’t kick a football if their lives depended on it.

An of course this being an event, Wargaming activated unicum win rate protect and gets 3 of them against me. This is unbelievable plus the series of 200 rating points lost in one evening. This is seriously corrupt game. 

"X 5 weekend, 10 games 9 losses ...
Some seals will be getting sooooo clubbed in the next couple of weeks."

Well tried to understand the "rules", decided after 10 minutes I couldn't be bothered, and the player base in the games seems to be struggling to achieve as high as "idiot status" .....so again not specifically bothering, whatever happens, happens!

best not to read them as it will just grind you down, they will be ones insulting SuperSK or some whining about the game being rigged against him in some ever increasingly bizzare ways...

me, I find them an interesting glimpse into the world of t’internet conspiracy theorists ;)

Lol, they do like to make it complicated but one thing to note is, use your pins from the Russia Time before the time runs out on the Russia phase as you lose them at the end and it starts again at 0 for France phase...

It really is use them or lose them, I expect some people are going to miss this and expecting lots of posts moaning that thy didn’t get their poosters etc from the Russia phase!
