Ok so why do I say its worst event ever: 1. At the start many had problem with scrolls being unrolled or rolled

                                                                 2. So when wg patched mistake few hours later some who bought unrolled scroll managed to finish event once 

                                                                 3. After the patch same players had chance to play event one more time because wg restarted progess but left rewards from the first try which is unfair to other players.

                                                                4. One more thing that happend after patch is that a lot of players played a lot of battles just to find out that they wherent counting so all that xp and time was wasted.

               

 

Solution that WG needs to do if it wants  players to stay and play wotb is that who had played event only one time needs to give them second try without removing rewards from first try. 

 

If we players dont do something you think WG will care and listen?

Free stuff for playing the game. No purchase necessary. Didn't last for weeks.
Not that bad.

I agree that it was a mistake letting some people 2 chances, but from that to calling this the worst event is far far away

In my opinion they should make more events like this. I have no time to spend playing game because of work, so events like this that you can complete in 1 day are welcome

Worst event?

 

I think this is quite one of the best events that WG has done in a while. 0 efforts needed. Played 30 battles. Invested 500 gold extra. Unlocked myself the tank everyone is dying for. It's much better than the 500 euros for a T22-medium stories I heard.

 

Even though I don't need this T59, I still like to have it laying around. Good stuff WG.

I decided not to spend the cash on the type 59 but I got the cost down to about 3500, which is a decent offer. Its not a very impressive event in my mind because it  doesn't last very long and once you've done the 30 battles that's it. It's not the worst event we've had. In my memory the 2017 blitz fair was pretty bad, as was goose tales. This isn't as good as the GuP event or the 2016 blitz fair but its far from the worst we've had.

This event required a fair amount of skill (after all, how many players out of 14 in a battle can finish with well over 1K exp?) and even more luck.

Unfortunately I seem to have lacked both, the skill to perform well in every single battle and the luck to have a winning team in the battles in which I did perform well :) (most annoying was the last battle, 3K dmg on mines then a noob mistake, meanwhile my team mostly evaporated, ended with a draw thanks to a camper TD). I guess playing a heavy didn't help to harvest lots of exp from spotting/capping (played tier 8 AMX 49).

Knowing some got the tank for free thanks to WG's incompetence rather than skill wasn't particularly conducive to parting with the 7.5K gold I had to pay so just grabbed the freebies and moved on (still congrats to the lucky ones!)

Part of me is disappointed that I didn't get the tank and that there wasn't a way to top up the loonie coins by some additional tasks but then, there are still many more tanks than I have time to play so overall the feeling is positive.

 


All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

I got what I wanted (Ding camo) for free by playing on one evening. Nothing wrong with the event, but Type 59 is available relatively cheap every now and then.

Discounted tank (which I had from the auction) or three camos, without grinding. Nice event.

The event itself was ok, discounted/free tank or camos and extras.

Skill required to gain event currency and win more items.

 

Like most events its bugged the first day and fails at being programmed and tested correctly.

Yes, this saw people get two tries or people get bonus xp from rated battles.

Yes this sucks if you missed out and feels unfair.

WG dont care and event was designed to sell discounted tank so they wont do anything to easily give more away.

Our Mighty Marsupial Marra Makes sense as usual...

It’s A WG event, SNAFU and like Millwall, you can hate em all you like but WG don’t care...

Best to just take what you got and move on.

I only had 1 go, had read ratings didn’t count so got some camo’s and credits as already had ding and some other bits and bobs, others gor 2 chances and got ratings bonus, fair play to them, no point whining about the unfairness of it all like a millenial.

I already had the Type 59, but no camo for it so It was an easy deal for me.  Even with some pretty awful teams (and some awful game play myself) I still managed 3 or 4 games over 1k xp and made enough to get the Ding camo and half way up the tree to the 59.  Had I not already had the Type 59 I probably would have tried a little harder and still got it for free.

 

Its not that impressive of a tank anyway, despite the legend surrounding it.  It’s mobility is pretty bad and it’s sluggish off the line, the gun handling is kinda painful for a medium but when it it hits, it hits hard.  It’s got a nice armor profile and that’s probably its one saving grace.  I wouldn’t have given out more than 3k gold for it.

 

Still the event was easy enough, do 30 games, get your free stuff and move on.  Much better than the 3 week slug fests WG normally does. Those of us who are used to WG Modus operandi knew to either get in early with the event or wait till after the inevitable “Sorry, we fücked up” patch to play.

I already had the tank and didn't want the new camo, so it was an even easier deal for me!  :)

Yeah I’m actually not all that impressed with the Ding camo, but free is free so ...

Im kind of disappointed, couldn't grind to get a tank for free*.

At least it didn't had an impact on wr/stats like the grindy events did.

For me it was the "easiest" considering how little time it took. I didn't bother until yesterday.

I did play rating last week until I reached platinum. Took the weekend off. Started doing the 30 games yesterday afternoon in rating, with the M48 and T-62A. Was finished in about 1.5 hrs. The last 5-6 games played with the Kv2 as I was sure I had gotten it.

At the end I finished the type 59 line and all of the goodies of the special camo line.

Considering how hyped the type 59 was on WOT PC I was surprised to get it for free.
