Do I understand this correctly?

 

5 gold for logging in.

5 gold bonus if you have premium.

5 gold for getting 10k xp

5 gold for getting 35k xp.

 

So 20 gold per day x 27 days = 540.

 

That's equivalent to working 15-20 minutes at a minimum wage job.

It's more of an insult than anything, they're trying to incentivize people to play this game for giving out a penny. With how many problems there are in this game that need to be fixed you throw 10 gold at us a day to try and raise our spirits? Nvm the countless suggestions and obviously flaws pointed out in this game that take 6 patches to be fixed.... they take the time to create missions worth a penny. It's not about being entitled to more gold, it's about the fact we don't care about 10 gold... just take the time and effort and put it somewhere else like not being able to join any stronghold function from a platoon for like 2 patches now?

I would rather the time be taken to improve the quality of the game than be given free stuff.

 

Yeah, if it had been 11 it would have been better. :)

Another worthless promotion.  Less effort for way more reward just doing the tournies.  100k credits would have been more worthwhile for 35k exp than 10 whole gold.  Who thinks up this stuff?

I agree that 5 gold is not much incentive to play, if that was the intent of the mission.

 

The thing that appears to suck about the mission is that it rewards better players more than the masses and the better players will probably be less incentivized to intentionally earn the reward.

 

The way it is worded, you need to earn the 10K or 35K XP in one day with a reset between days. It would really be better if there was no reset so that players could earn the gold by completing the mission over more days. This way lower skilled players would have more incentive to play in order to continue where they left off and the benefit would not be reserved for mostly the better players.

 

Most low players will not achieve 35K in one day. Many higher players will not attempt to get 35K for the benefit of 5 gold, they will just play and get it if they get it.

 

I am an average player and it would take me 23 doubles for the 35K. With a 50ish% win rate that is 30+ battles, and at the average 7 minutes per battle that is 210 minutes. I am not going to play 2.5 hours for 5 gold.

 

Yes, free is appreciated but as an incentive to get people to play, it is not very good.

The 35k exp thing seems less like a promotion for rampage, and more like a promotion for people to bot the rampage mode all month. It would be quite a nice way to trick people into botting there and doing a mass de-botting of the server. If it turns out that way, then maybe it wouldn't be a half bad way to farm exp and credits from beings that think in 0s and 1s.

Que? Rampage mode is excluded from the mission.

Sorry, this is lame.

Hey, WG, take the gold I would have gotten, and Secret Santa it to someone.

I mean, 10 Gold (IF Prem acct)  ?

Ok, 1 demount.  oboy.

The free gold is nice and all but I would rather have a new map added every month or so instead.  It seems like one map or the other keeps popping up or one of the variations of it.  Too many recycled maps were added (winter Ruinberg, Himmelsdorf and fiery salient Prokhorovka versions.) so how about new maps?  I don't much care for the Pilsen map and have heard many other complaints about it.  How about some larger maps as well.  I hate the mines map where you barely have room to move without being spotted 5 seconds after the battle has started.  Some maps were removed that I actually enjoyed playing on such as Northwest or North America, Pearl River, Hidden Village etc.  I like maps with variety that have a city area for heavies and open areas for other tank classes.  The maps that are just all city are not my favorites and tend to be boring.

But for only $12.50 you can get a premium account for one month. That way, for the price of 2500 gold you can get the 10 gold per day that adds up to… oh, wait…

The way I read it, you can only win once a day, but it doesn't say it resets. If I'm reading it correctly you can continue stacking it up each day until you get the gold. If this is true, yes the better or more you play you will win more, as it should be, but you can still benefit.

Any thought of trying to revive rampage mode? When you give small little gold maybe consider making it for RAMPAGE only?! or at least allow rampage to be part of it... anyways just a throught maybe time to do some kinda xp or credit bonuses to bring people besides PvErs back to rampage.
