Didn't have the time yesterday and today with work, but I thought better late than never having a closer look at the event to see what's possible for mere mortals, F2P players and even unicums and beyond.

 

So we basically have a battlepass here, except there is only one track shared by F2P and paid players and you know full well that means it will be impossible to complete without spending money.

 

So let's get the basics out of the way first.

 

There are 60 stages in total, and each takes 1000 pyroleum to complete.

 

You get pyroleam in 3 ways.

Completing missions. You have 10 daily mission giving you 90 pyroleum each, and one giving you 200, so that's a potential of 1,100 pyroleum a day.

If you by the pyroleum container, you instantly get 30,000 pyroleum, and an extra 2 daily missions earning 200 pyroleum each to boost your daily earnings potential to 1,500 pyroleum per day.

Finally, pyroleum boosters. at stages 1, 11, 25 and 35 of the event you are given a number of boosters, 5 at level 1 and 2 each at levels 11,25 and 35. Each of these gives you a guaranteed 400 pyroleum for any battle played (win or lose).

 

Now you get 1,000 pyroleum to start with as well, so that gets you going on day 1 with 5 pyroleum boosters.

 

Now if you are considering buying the pyroleum trailer (£9.99 on iOS, Google, Switch or £7.75 on Amazon (£6.25 if bought using Amazon coins)) you must buy it on day 1 or lose out on 400 pyroleum a day...and that could be significant as we'll see in a minute.

 

So you know me by now...it's time for some numbers......I'll do a with and without the pyroleum trailer for F2P vs P2P, and I'll also do it with or without the extra rating/platoon mission that I know a lot of players usually skip.

 

Day Pyroleum from missions Pyroleum from boosters Total Level Notes
1 2,100 2,000 4,100 4 You get an extra 1,000 free on day 1 and 5 pyroleum boosters from level 1
2 1,100   5,200 5  
3 1,100   6,300 6  
4 1,100   7,400 7  
5 1,100   8,500 8  
6 1,100   9,600 9 Get the Spike tank free here
7 1,100   10,700 10  
8 1,100 800 12,600 12 Level 11 gives 2 more pyroleum boosters and an extra 800 pyroleum earned
9 1,100   13,700 13  
10 1,100   14,800 14  
11 1,100   15,900 15  
12 1,100   17,000 17  
13 1,100   18,100 18  
14 1,100   19,200 19  

 

So there you go, that's an awful long way short of level 60, and even level 45 with the annihilator. Skipping the daily platoon/ratings mission will drop you to 17,940 pyroleum and means you only complete level 17 by the end of the event.

 

So, to get the annihilator you MUST buy the pyroleum trailer....but does that mean you can complete the event....let's see.

 

Day Pyroleum from missions Pyroleum from boosters Total Level Notes
1 2,500 34,400 36,900 36 You get an extra 1,000 free on day 1 and 11 pyroleum boosters from levels 1, 11, 25 and 35 plus the 30,000 from the trailer
2 1,500   38,400 38  
3 1,500   39,900 39  
4 1,500   41,400 41  
5 1,500   42,900 42  
6 1,500   44,400 44 Get the Spike tank free here
7 1,500   45,900 45  
8 1,500   47,400 47 Level 11 gives 2 more pyroleum boosters and an extra 800 pyroleum earned
9 1,500   48,900 48  
10 1,500   50,400 50  
11 1,500   51,900 51  
12 1,500   53,400 53  
13 1,500   54,900 54  
14 1,500   56,400 56  

 

So then, the answer is no, you can't complete the event with just the pyroleum trailer alone. You will need to spend another 2,500 gold (that's about £10 in WG money, or can be discounted down to as low as £3.69 by bulk buying and using Amazon coins.

 

The good news (if there is any) is that the trailer is enough to get you the tank, so unless you want the new background, flamethrower attachment, and glowing camo as well, then your all set! 

 

Now if you do buy the trailer but don't play the daily platoon or ratings missions, you miss out on 1,260 pyroleum, dropping you down to 55,140. Thankfully for those that do want to complete the event and buy the 5 level skip, that's still all you have to pay...a small light at the end of the tunnel there at least.

 

Is it all bad news, no quite honestly, by all accounts the annihilator is a beast of a tank and worth every bit of the £9.99 (or less on Amazon). F2P players will get the spike without a probliem so there is somethign for everyone, the way it should be I think.

 

And honesty, the annihilator is way cheaper than if they had brought it to store for gold or cash.

 

Get's a thumbs up from me....even if you do have to grind every mission every day!

You don’t taken into account the 80% loss rate, (100% on some days), the frustration of the teams, and the mental anguish from playing a rubbish game!

Thanks for the overview! The event seems pretty good value for money. I just find it odd that you cannot complete it with just the trailer. Luckily the last stages are pretty uninteresting.

@stubbo, I think you missed something...

it says do the special missions in one of the fake tanks, spike, Anni, Gravedigger, Smasher...

you get 1900 a day as that gives a 200 bonus per mission therefore whilst I’ve not done the sums that sounds like more than enough so that if like me you bought payroll-eum trailer day 1 and do all missions you will be able to do all levels with no extra gold!

thats not possible check WG discord they posted in dev-answers what you need to do and how many days you need to do it 

 

if you bought tanker on day1 and you did every mission you reach level 56 (55completed) for the remaining 5 you need to pay 2500gold :)

 

If you want to complete the entire event:

 Pyroleum Trailer is required on day 1.

 Complete all Missions including 3 extra ones within 15 days.

 Play 11 battles with Pyroleum Boosters installed.

 You'll need 2500 gold to unlock the last 5 stages.

yes, do the special missions for the fake tanks but you only get one of those missions per day.

It's fine semantics issue, how you understand depends where you put the emphasis but it doesn't promise you that all 3 special missions generate extra 200 cans, just the designated one.


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

I think 1500 per day is the correct number?
 

10 normal missions x 90 

1 fake tank mission x 200

2 special missions from trailer x 200

 

So 900 + 200 + 400. Or 1.5 stages per day, not enough to get to stage 60.

With the trailer and the fantasy tanks from the start you get through a lot of stages to get the Anni pretty quickly. Once that is done I just don’t see the point as the other bits you get  are somewhat meh! Far better IMO if you want to spend some gold to drop it on the 5x booster packs and switch to playing tech tree tanks you are grinding. In the burning event with a 5x booster you can regularly get 17/18k XP in games.  I’ll

Yeah, when I first saw their vids I thought you could double up the 200 rewards to 400, but alas not.....
