So if you grind the entire british heavy line in 14 days [somehow], you get one of the worst premiums in the game?

 

 

Sounds like fun.

So,

 

700,000 XP in 30 days = IS-6 = 11,800 gold

522,900 XP in 15 days = Matilda Black Prince + small repair kit x 10 + small first aid kit x 10 + manual fire extinguisher x10 + coated optics + large repair kit x 10 + large first aid kit x 10 + enhanced gun laying drive  = 1750 gold + 1,460,000 silver

 

Erm, I know this is not a special offer like the IS-6 mission, but don't you guys at WG think an event that requires players to grind nearly twice as much as XP per day as the one that offered a tier 8 premium tank should have a better incentive?

Alright, who pos repped Content _WG this time? the on track announcement was fine, but really? The Brit heavy line in 14 days?

It really is a lot of XP for so little reward.  If I'm trying to achieve an XP goal in WoT, I can grind 2 or 3 hundred thousand credts in two weeks.  Even if I owned all the tanks and all the x2/3/5 counted, I don't think it would be possible for me to achieve this.  And, no, I am not even considering doing it.

 

I really think they'd get more serious effort out of folks if they halfed the total XP required and let you grind it in any tank in the special.  Even that would be tough, but at least achievable for certain diehards.  I doubt it would be a significant increase over the number of Grand Prize winners from the last On Track.

Assuming you're reporting the OP, you did the right thing in keeping the forums free of junk.

I wish I had the courage to do so. Alas...

All that is required for evil WG to triumph if for good people to do nothing.

1 more winner would probably be an Undefined times more than the last OT's Grand Prize winner, so it may be significant. Time will tell...

these rewards are pointless for people who have already gone up the line its kinda silly to even expect a person to go up a whole line in 14 days

So... If this on-track is the British Heavy line, why did you guys release the video about the T-62A? Just trying to get our hopes up that we'd get something halfway decent before smashing those hopes to bits by giving us something pathetic again?

 

Don't get me wrong, discounts and credit boosts are always good, but why try to deceive us into thinking we would have a better line to work on?

I already have the Matilda BP (I like it just fine by the way) so not really interested in the small reward for the enormous amount of work.

I did the IS-6 mission, but that was my limit on what I'm willing to do and the reward it takes to keep me interested.  This reward is just nowhere near enough for the work involved.

A couple of the smaller rewards from running the Tier 3 and the Matilda are easy to get, and I'll just run those off today.  Matilda remains one of my favorite tanks.

I'm ready to buy the Caernavon (sp?) so the 30% off is most welcome.

And the improved earnings actually make the Matilda a pretty good credit generator.

Now if these little missions tracked where we were in the line I wouldn't mind it, but since it's telling me to go back to the Matilda...which I didn't use to start with I used the Valentine...& retrack back to where I'm currently at in the line makes no bloody sense to me. Why should I regrind to the Black Prince from the Matilda when I still have to grind the last 3 tanks as well?

The T-62A has already been featured in the On Track series.  Why would you jumpt to the conclusion they would feature it again?

Can't believe more than a small percentage will do this or last months Jg Pz E100. But still it's better a better reward than last month and better than the old tech tree focus events.

 

Me, I'll likely do up to from Tier 2 up to Tier 7 or 8 since they are on sale.

Maybe the russian player base has shown they would grind this out and SerB thinks the ROW would too? IDK. I played the JPII for two weeks and still couldn't get just that one mission completed. Who honestly can do these ridiculous mission grinds?

Honestly, how many people got the prize tank for the JPE100 on track mission.  I can't imagine it was very many.
