In order.  So finish the first one before the second one, etc...

 

15 wins and be top-10. After that 75K xp and be in top-10. And after that 30 battles and be in top-10. So without prem an average player should play 150-200 games to get a tank worth $5.79 or 750 gold. No way! :facepalm: 

 

Looks like a person who invented this super event is very-very mentally gifted. Does WGNA hire people from psych wards?

While not up to what I want, it isn't bad.

T8 prem sales are few and far between, but I haven't scrounged up enough gold for one yet, oh well, time to wait for fall to arrive. I am mostly saddened that the tanks they are giving away are ones I don't yet have, I need those credit makers!

Beggars can't be choosers.

 

GL, HF, and carry those x5 weekend teams!

x5s and premium bonuses also apply to the 75k in part 2.

 

So the 75k is really 15k if all you do is all your x5 for your tanks. ;)

Well wouldn't that 75k really be 15k due to the x5 this weekend? If all you did was all your x5 tanks of course. But it should help lessen some of the number of battles no?

   You should play lower tier, high win rate tanks for your 15 wins. Then roll out your highest tier X5 wins for the 75k. Then simply finish with your best performers, win or loss.

That is what I have started doing.  Su85B and Su85 for the 15 wins and then unleash any tank with x5 after that.

Nice special, but lets talk about why you started waiting until after the special started to announce them...

Yes, I used it in my estimation. I made my assumption that an average player had winrate about 50% on his best tanks and had less than 10 tanks in his hangar.

 

For me the number of battles will be in the range of 70-100. But anyway 750 gold is not worth it. I already have Chi-Nu-Kai in my hangar.

Has anyone else noticed that Tier 9 and 10 Regular vehicles are also on 15% discount?  Stealthy move Wargaming.  Much appreciated as I had a few 9's and 10's unlocked and waiting.  Thanks and Happy Birthday

A strong sale, and exciting.

I'm happy for the 5x, the retraining, the equipment, the high tier tank sales...

 

But why doesn't retraining change the price of the 500g to change crew qualifications?  

 

Skill resets are discounted separately, and they don't usually do both training and skill discounts in the same weekend.

This is the first and last on track mission I am ever doing after seeing them pull this. 

 

Unfortunately, this is not the first time they've done this, or the 2nd, or the 3rd...........

It should be X100 XP and Wargaming should mail every player $15,000. In gold. Actual gold. 

 

What a bunch of whiners. "My free game is not giving away more." *sniffle* *sob* *whine*

 

Ehem.....I've spent $175 on this "free" game.  This "free" game is supported by players who spend millions of dollars.......in case you forgot.  And the free players are our cannon fodder on the field.  They are far from worthless.  All players help keep the game alive.  Without happy free players, the model collapses and the game goes bye bye.

 

The 'whining', as you call it, is simply a reaction to 4 years of zany, irrational customer service.  If this were a retail store selling tube socks and lunch meat or something, it would have gone out of business 4 years ago with the routine bizarre behavior from the corporation.

 

------------------------------

 

Well, let's see, with all of the hype about this I was expecting the mother load, like I've seen before a number of times, but I'd probably rate it 6-7/10 for regular events, and a 4-5/10 for a hyped up special event.  For those that don't know or don't recall, WG has had really awesome, mother load events in the past, with virtually everything discounted, as well as missions where you don't have to kill yourself to achieve them.....missions for casual and low time players.

 

It's been done many times before, so people are understandably disappointed when a hyped up event feels more like a regularly scheduled weekend special.  

 

I finally got the Church 3.  It's been 9 weeks since it's last sale.  That thing used to be on sale practically every other week, along with many other cheaper ones.  I'll probably do one crew retrain, and save the rest for perma-camo discounts.

 

This game has been fun, but it's also been frustrating in many ways, and the incredibly high prices on premium tanks is just out of reach for a lot of people, so, I am gradually weening myself off of this game.  I've cut my active grind tanks down to 4, and am reducing my play time so I don't burn out again.  I have burned out twice and walked away for a 6 and 4 month period.

 

I would love to have a Super Pershing, Jag 8.8, and a Lowe, but.....those prices!   eesh!  I suspect I won't be able to afford them until the game is dying and they deep discount everything to try and keep it going.  That might be another 5 years away, who knows, and by then, I won't want them any more.  :(

 

Btw, WG, if players are still getting reduced gold awards for tanks earned from an ongoing mission that ends during a sale, that needs to stop.  They shouldn't have to fill out support tickets or complain on the forums.  It just shouldn't happen in the first place.

Not sure if I want to upvote or downvote. Now I get 50% of the gold for completing the on track mission, but it's far easier with the x5.

As someone else mentioned, fill out a support ticket for it.  At least one time in the past they have granted the full award for those who 'requested' it.  It's lame, I know, but you may be able to get it.

That's usually mod problems.  I have Aslain's and he made an announcement about it and released an update for it.  I would check for updates first, then try uninstalling all mods if that didn't fix it.

Getting less gold value than you were expecting kind of sucks, but we are talking $3 worth of gold vs $6 worth of gold.  You're doing a lot of complaining over $3.  No where did they advertise this as an event for you to earn $6 worth of gold.

For on-track events, they almost always discount the reward vehicle during the last weekend.  Plan accordingly and finish up by Thursday and you are safe and get full gold value.

Never due events with the end goal being earning gold from vehicles you already own.  I look at the gold as a bonus.  I'm going to move up a tree, get a bunch of crew xp, earn a bunch of free xp and credits...and at the end, I'll pocket a little gold.

As for this weekend's event.  With an X5 weekend, I'm going to be running a TON of tanks anyways.  I'm bound to complete the event without even noticing.  So the end reward is simply a bonus to everything else going on.


 

Seriously, if you are playing this game solely for event rewards, you are playing the game for the wrong reason and will never enjoy yourself.

The fact that I have to do these missions in order is stupid. I've been getting up to 10k xp a match and nope cant use it towards the chi nu kai yet because of the stupid wins.
