Howdy folks, the latest operation is now in effect. This time we're featuring the Top Gun medal, and a hefty 1500xp every time you earn it for the duration of this event!

You can find the full details for the Operation here.

The way my luck goes is my shot usually leaves the enemy at 1-5% HP...and then arty happens.   :arta:  At least I can contribute to someone else's Top Gun award--I should get half XP for that, right?  :Smile_trollface-3:

I know this is a bit of a thread hijack, but my attempt to ask a question in a current place where I feel a dev is most likely to see it.  The "Patch Notes" forum seemed more appropriate, but also seems to have fallen into disuse, with nothing more recent than 8.0.

So my question is...when are we going to see what you have coming in 8.4?

Usually, a patch release is followed fairly promptly (within a week or so) of a relatively detailed summary of what's coming in the next update.  That didn't happen this time.

All that I've seen thus far is that it's projected to come in March (which would imply that 8.4 test server should be coming pretty soon, right?), that re-rendered Komarin/Swamp are coming back, and Dragon/Serene are being taken out for more work.

Surely there's substantially more to 8.4 than just that....I hope.

the way things have been going i assumed this was 1500 credits....

instead we get 1500 xp...

most of which will be awarded to tanks that are already elited...

meaning this will actually just create an opportunity for WarGaming to make more money when people "convert" that XP they already earned in order to use it.

While its always nice to get bonuses...

these specials will never seem very special unless they reward people with Gold

Didn't even realize this was on till I got it last night in my D. Max.  There's a wonky part of the after battle report that sometimes moves the reward into the "Fine for damage caused to allies" line, and I was think when did I do that?  Had to visit the main page to find out what was going on.

I was "stealing" kills from a JagdPanther next to me the whole time.  Before they finally got him, I stole eight and got the Radley-Walters’ Medal.  He got Confederate, of course.

I got no problem with free stuff, but 1500 xp does seem kind of low.

I'm certainly not complaining about the reward, but I think the WoT community would take more notice of these Operations events if they were rewarded with gold. The only reason I noticed this was on was because of the after battle report glitch.  I'd venture to say most of the standard pubbies don't even notice the additonal credit or XP bonus if they get it.  If they suddenly had some extra gold in their account, even if it was just 5 or 10, they would notice that and maybe investigate why they got it.  Just a suggestion.

Is this forever or a limited time thing?  1 thing I dislike about W.O.T is you don't get rewarded for getting medals or other achievements.

They run "Operations" events every week.  A different one each time.
The medals and achievements shouldn't be about getting XP or Credits all the time.  I'd much rather my team focus on winning the battle, not going for a particular achievement because there's a special reward for getting it.

god these events are a pain in the ass.

operation top gun = I get cursed and shot at for shooting at an enemy a teammate wanted to kill
operation defender = teammate waits until the last minute to reset the cap, then bounces the shot and we lose

please be more creative and have events that don't encourage morons to play badly.
