Thanks RibbleStripe, this "competition" has totally reinforced the total lack of any appreciation from WG to the players.

From high ping, terrible lag, teams full of lower tier players who have zero idea of which end of the gun the sodding shell exits, to players totally out of depth tier 5 and above who have less than 500 games, and a sodding tier 8 tank, people who ark AFK for either all of the battle, to those who stay afk until the rest of the team is destroyed 

And on top of this you want to make it easier for those with tier 1-4 tanks by limiting the number of tanks available, the enhancement that can be added, and yet you provide these same players with a tank so high above their ability...........what planet are you on!

Obviouslt not the planet earth, or even the planart of cus tomer satifaction!!!

Good God..........words simply fail me......just like the common sense in the WG management!

This might be the first 2018 event where I can win all the gifts which I think are worth having.  The key has been to have a large enough garage.  If something like this event takes place again, perhaps for another nation, WG should consider offering garage slots at a discount, and/or as one of the earlier prizes.

I’m a bit torn on this on event, I like that it’s not too hard a grind, although that reflects the “rewards” as they are all a bit meh, but...

 

I’m more in llo1’s camp, as it is encouraging muppets to play higher than usual, maybe some mistaken belief higher tiers get more rewards but the teams are just abysmal in general. I’ve seen a marked increase in afk until shot players, nabs!

 

I have a bad feeling it is a glimpse into the future post the decimation of tiers i-iv, it’s just going to drive muppets higher quicker and tier v will be destroyed as they will be totally out lf their depth and not seen anything like it and it aill make them jump it quick to tier vi to equip tanks as there are going to be swarms of seal clubbers in fully equipped/crew skills v+ waiting to smash them.  I like tier vi it’s where you see some teamwork, some decent players and can see side-scraping, hull down, ridge shooting etc being used (mainly from tier vii players mind).  It’s where I finally understood side scraping, I’d read the theory but just didnt get it, I do now.  

 

So in summary, this event, it’s a no from me!

I agree that the event rewards are rather mediocre.  Factor in the accompanying tank sale though, and it's been alright for me...I've bought back cheaply all the lower-tier vehicles I'll need.

 

The general standard of play does appear to drop whilst any event is running.  Is this one worse though? I really can't tell.  

 

I do use the cover of an event to battle at a higher level than I normally play.  The influx of the equally less talented is an opportunity to learn, at reduced risk, the real capabilities of vehicles that otherwise you'd have to guess from technical stats.  

 

WG should increase the XP requirements of researching tanks to slow down the climb up the tiers.  But experienced players must realise they'll always be beginners whatever the tier, and adjust their expectations accordingly.  Some won't of course, but that just marks them down as being far to up themselves!

Sixty three, people do expect to have people playing "above their tier" but there is a limit!!

If you playing tier 5, some tier 4 is bound to be expected, and should wG restrict advancement to experience there would be significantly less problems than now!

Playing tier 5 and finding your whole team, and something both teams have an average number of battles less than 500!!!

And should you get to tier 8, and find the same inexperience players some even less that 100 battles.......you ave got to be taking the p***!

When they remove the lower tiers as well players are going to advance even faster!!!

Here’s three definitions of what constitutes “playing above your level”.  I use two.  Guess which ones they are! 

 

1.  Any player who has a poor hit rate, indicating they’ve never learnt how to shoot properly in at least the vehicle in question.

2,  Any player who fails to win the game after the teams star player has died.

3.  Anybody fighting in a premium vehicle that’s three tiers higher than any tech tree vehicle they’ve apparently used.

Your events have only one effect. Even more longtime players leave the game!
