We are two days on our way, and no topic yet on this event? Well, here it is. Just my two cents on it.

 

First of all, it is a ‘recycled event’. Not a new, fresh tank, but the old -yet buffed- Blaze. I got mine in the event years ago, when it was the Blaze or the Glacial. I was, as I am now, quite noobish in those days so early on I spotted that the Glacial was out of my reach and went for the Blaze. A fairly underwhelming tank so it sits in a corner of my garage, collecting dust.

 

Secondly, the setup of the event is disappointing. Collect as much base XP as possibly in 100 games. The bar for the Blaze sits at 890 XP per battle. Not per win, per battle. Yesterday I was lucky enough to get 67% winrate in 25 tier X battles. Yet I was stuck on 750 XP average. Could be me of course.

But what is the effect of this bar? You have to play higher tiers, and you have to win or be an excellent loser. The problem is our 40% / 1000 game tier-rushing teammate (and red, yes) knows this as well. So at the moment tier 9 and 10 is flooded with these guys, making the game unpredictable at best, unplayable at worst. Why not make it 50 wins, in stead of 100 games?

 

As another writer said it in another topic, the aim of the event seems to be selling keys for the Smasher. Wrap this in an event with a dusted off premium, sprinkle some useless goodies on top and that is Blitz Summer 2020. Well at least it is consistent with all the rest that happens irl in 2020....

The cost of the Blaze will reduce somehow. I unlocked every level except the Blaze, have 393 “bobs” and 6107 is missing. My guess is the Blaze could be around ~2k gold if one doesn’t open the key box.

 

Got 100 gld from the key box, so it’s ok for me.

i agree kind of recycled mediocre event but not that hard to do

event warriors are always a problem and there is no way preventing them after all they should also have a chance for "free" tank

 

i spend 1732gold and got smasher+wz blaze im more than happy 

even if i got only blaze for 1k gold(spend 750 for the smasher) thats still not bad for tier 7 tank even useless one :)

 

as usual aim for the event is to spend gold/cash to get the rewards on heavy discount not for free

but people dont seem to understand that

That's exactly what it's all about. the average player (most players) will not be able to get the tank, or even the key, without spending gold

Yeah, they shower you with crates to sell the keys, making them time bound is A clever Psychological trick too as it encourages people to buy keys before they “lose” the crate, even though you actually lose nothing by letting them evaporate...

Mind you I have blaze and smasher on re-roll and love Gravedigger so going to throw my bing rewards at keys for GD certs, I bought the 750 key and got 30 for it so on my way!

Cmon... you are too old and 'wise' to fall for that ... you know that you are are gonna get a mix of 'vouchers' across all the tanks, but not quite enough to get the one you want ... I predict a scavenger in your future soon ... possibly two.  This is exactly what happened in other events to me. I forget which one it was but I had three drac's drop for me when I want wanted something else ... I didn't actually mind that time as the gold was good enough compensation!

Was the smasher from a crate?  It sounds like you were lucky not to have to spend more, given the probabilities.

I'm old enough but no wisdom here m8...
It's my free money from MS Bing so happy to splash it, I totally expect more certs to go with the type64, action x, super conq and kpfpz70 ones cluttering up the storage, apart from the super conq I have the tanks already :(

Not rigged just crap teams and you need to carry hard to get the xp as it's base xp and losses hardly get any...

check out this thread http://forum.wotblitz.eu/index.php?/topic/52909-bing-rewards-a-little-extra-for-f2p-players/page__st__120

You earn points by searching on web/doing activities like quizs with MS Bing, you can earn points on any device with any browser but...

you need a windows machine to redeem the gift cards as can only be used in MS store...

It’s easy, I run 3 accounts, takes about 5 minutes a day to get £10-15 a month...

I just do it during comfort breaks at work so getting paid twice!

I don’t use a bot like suggested in the original article, I just saved a load of searches and open them al with 1 tap in the browser...

Pro tip : Wait till the last 2 days of the event you will have better chances in tier 10

32 lootboxes, if anyone wants a spare. Interestingly more people seem to drop games than in previous events, one can pretty easly sealclub in tier IX-X.
