Hi gamers.

 

I've started this topic because I think I am not alone just thinking that this event is unfair. Why? Look at missions prepared by WG.

Yesterday I got a mission to kill 3 oponents with Gravedigger, Tankenstein, Scavenger and.... Annihilator and Spike which are earned in THIS EVENT. Now in second set of missions I have to win 2 battles in them! Somebody may say "noob, buy Gravedigger or Tankenstein and sit quiet!", but if I'm forced to do this really? Not. This event is driven unfair - making missions with tanks being awards of this event? sic! I append screens of my missions (polish but you can see easily where is mission to kill 3 enemies and to win 2 battles with those tanks. Fight for your rights! Community has the power.

It’s only 1 of many missions and is there for players who have played the game before...

Oh and for those who spend the money,  buy a Payroll-eum trailer u get the spike!

 

I’m afraid They’re not gonna listen, don’t worry about it just do your other missions...

You’ll get a spike soon enough...

 

I’d have thought the fact you can only get the Annihilator after spending £$€9.99

One mission maybe is not a problem. But x missions multiplied by 90 points is a significant amount. Ofcourse, buy, buy, buy but if common event should be projected like this?

you can have some stuff and free tier 5 tank

if you want the tier 7 and more stuff pay 9.99 very simple

I'm being forced to play the Smasher to achieve an extra mission... Meh. The actual daily/weekly missions are separate to the extra one. I get irritated by the red dot from the extra extra missions that want me to spend £10 to achieve them so I can win what appears to be a seriously mediocre tank.
Just play the game, don't let WG sucker you into spending money.

From everything i've seen from encountering them, they have some decent-ish frontal turret armor. That's it. It doesn't hold a candle to Lycan, Dracula, Helsing or Smasher. The triple shot seems to have slightly less inter-shot dispersion. But all in all, it does about 360 dmg per tri-shot. It's the worst of the lot, going by the looks of it.

 

I'll reserve final judgment when i get mine, but.... i shouldn't have spent gift-cards on this malarkey.

seems decent i think
very good view range and fast turning turret with a lot of armour
not a bad reload and aim time
load more apcr/heat and should be monster if you use it like on small bumps

But you can't buy those tanks, you have to gamble for them, so that makes it even more unfair. WG are encouraging us to spend money to gamble to get the extra missions. I'm not doing the event, too much time and effort involved, just playing normally.

 


When I'm the top player in the team, how is it my fault if we lose and not the teams? WG theme song

The event has certain flavour - post apocalyptic/ borderlands/ fallout blurb.

1 out of 13 missions is designed to require a tank from the lot, one of them you get for free in the event itself (Spike), Scavenger was fairly easy to get 2 years ago.

Unfair? as far as WG goes this is one of the least unfair things. 

Looks like snowflakes are melting in the heat of the wasteland....


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

I met a couple of them yesterday, one a FUZ player half of whose team camped spawn at Yamato. Finished him off through the front. The other one was a bit more useless player, but again plenty of not-red everywhere.

Okay

I paid to skip 30 levels. Got crates and opened them to get the Scavenger only, nothing else.

Now, look at the calculations.

1100 Tokens daily from missions. 60 levels; each level need 1000 tokens to claim; event runs for 15 days. 

60 levels @ 1000 each = 60,000 Tokens needed

1100 token for 15 days  =  16,500 Tokens = 16.5 levels.

NOT GOOD FOR FREE PLAYERS. Even after paying, it is not worth the money. 

 

Be careful and save your hard earned money. I checked my bank statements and I am not happy with the amount of money I spent on this in the past 1 month.

LOL.. who cares about the missions or this event. The rewards are craaaap. Don't fall for the trick that makes you feel you have to complete either the missions or the event.

 

If you want the new monster tank, you can pay the tenner. That's about all you need to know here.

I detect millennial entitlement.

 

In summary.

 

I am being asked to pay, or to wait for something.

 

I want it now and for free.

 

This isn’t fair.

What’s no fair about it?

You play it....and you get something....

You PAY a bit and get more....if you play after paying you get something else!

 

You don’t play  enjoy life, ignore the advertisements, and then you have a life.....

BogHonorOjczyzna_POLON_ interesting way of thinking that you are entitled to anything for free. "Fight for your rights" you say - please tell us (the community has the power) what you believe your rights exactly are?

 

Let me help you in your thought process beforehand.

WG is not a charity foundation.WG is a business company providing games to customers. At any moment, these customers are free to choose whether they play the game or not and to what extent (i.e. the amount of money customers want to spend).

As jonty_2014 commented: if you believe this event is unfair, "Wait until you get to the ‘adulting’ stage of ‘Real Life’™️.  You’re in for one helluva shock."

 

Have fun, enjoy what you have and stay save.

@net4force such a pity. You are a victim of capitalism having source in eastern socialism (WG place of origin). WG has shown us how to enforce some players to buy things. WG made it more or less wise but IMO with success for the company. And this is not the main thread of this discussion. Growing up and other personal offenses are not too, unless you are going to put the level of discussion to the level of your floor... I suppose it is not your target. Let's go back to the main thread. Who sais it should be for free? I mentioned unfair way of this project because one slot of available missions has been taken at the start of the event, including acomplishing missions with tanks who are the award of this event. Making money doesn't underlie any kind of arguing. This is the right and purpose of making buisness of course. Making such an unfair mechanism of the event is the problem.

@BogHonor...why is it unfair to have targets specifically for those with the fake fantasy tanks?

Somepeople already have them (not me), who are therefore going to be incentivised to take part to gain the “other” fake fantasy tanks!

There are also targets for those who simply do not have the skill or the ability, or the intention to achieve...it doesn’t make it unfair...

It would only be “unfair” if the targets were totally unobtainable for everyone...

As said before, you want to take part...pay your money up front and then you will be able to join in with all the other owners of the fake fantasy tanks!

Spike is easily obtainable as a F2P player so once you got it this mission helps with grinding the remaining stages that can be completed F2P. The two others are for players that have paid and are there to help them complete the paid stages. 

 

Usually events aren't like this but most premium tanks earned from events are only obtainable by unicums or dedicated players while the rest of us can only see events like discounts on that premium tank. Sometimes WG gives out events that can be completed by everyone.

Wow, life is not fair accept it, for those of us that have the tanks available it’s because we played longer, something for the older players does not come along often. I could say it’s not fair you can get the tanks from crates when I had to grind them in previous events, but I don’t. Stop whining and get on with it. All we will see next year is someone else writing the same boring thread because they don’t have certain tanks to help them with an event. :child:
