I like these 5x weekends- even the poorer games will pay out 2500+. and its a great time to work toward the valedictorian mission as well- 5x, premium, and xp booster mean youre almost guaranteed to rake in over 10,000 xp.

Every time these x5 roll around, about 10 people will come to the forum complaining about them and say they attract poor players.  Funny thing is though, the online population does not increase that much from the x2 weekend the week before.  I also doubt that there is a bunch of nerds sitting around not playing this game until the x5 rolls around again.  Myself, I see no difference is quality from any other day.  I think it is just another one of those things that is repeated because "all the cool guys are saying it" and the posters want to look cool too.

That's about the long and short of it. People suck whether its X2 Tuesday or X5 Saturday.

All I know is I wish I could have the option to be bottom tier every match when playing my 8s, people in the mid tiers right now are BEYOND trash so being top tier in my 8s is more of a negative than a benefit.

True, the skill level stays the same ... but I think there would be more motivation to stay longer and chase the 5x for as many tanks as possible ...  thus a greater chance to see repeat players in a 5x tank that they are struggling with for what ever reason.  This may very well give the impression that there are more 'bad' players, given the circumstance of potentially seeing them more often in a given period of time.

Nicely put! I love these events! I think I picked up my 20K experience for the day in about 30 minutes.

The idea is to get more people to play. Since this game has no PVE mode (and most of you hate the idea of it with a passion, because you're scared of the fact that some people don't want to play PVP), there have to be incentives to get on and play. If they have to throw free stuff at you all day long to get you to play, they will.

OP, if you don't want to take advantage of the 5x events, then don't.  Simply do something else and wait for them to finish.  I enjoy a 5x event, as its helpful for those tanks I need to grind and helps the never ending task of improving tank crew skills.  Not to mention that these events are a great way to draw attention to whatever event or celebration Wargaming wants to point to.  Its their party and they can and should do as they please, IMO.

 

If you don't enjoy that such events bring a greater volume of players to the queue, find other ways to occupy your time.  You've evidently a great build up of saltiness dwelling within you, judging by your critical comment;  perhaps this is an opportune time for you to take a break, unwind, and let go of that build up.

 

I don't believe the post was made saying their shouldn't be anything at all, but rather for something to take place of the X5 event because it seems lackluster in comparison to the other potential events (Who doesn't like free kills though :trollface:)

WG, don't listen to this guy.  X5 weekends are great, there is nothing wrong with them and we love them.

 

Yeah, it brings out some bad players.  And half the time, I get to SHOOT at them.  So it's all fair.

I've never noticed a difference no matter what time or day I play, bonuses or not. However, it's the weekend, more people are going to play regardless of bonuses.

If I play from 4 pm to midnight EST, the battles are all crazy like they let a bunch of people out of the lunatic asylums to play WOT. Weird things happen in battles that defy explanations. No pattern or logical play in most battles. Players driving off or being pushed off the bridge on Erlenberg, team killers, allies ramming your tank and blocking your reverse, lemming trains to the max, rush bots and the list goes on. It's like letting a bunch of hamsters loose in a cage and watching them all scurrying around looking for random bits of food except these hamsters have guns and are shooting at everything and anything. If I play after midnight or before 4 pm, the matches are kind of "normal". Well..as normal as random battles can be I guess but at least not as crazy as during the 4pm to midnight time slot. I guess you will have to play strongholds or something to avoid those players?

 

i resent your reference to hamsters, sir.  hamsters were once proud predators of the desert.  oh and just for the record that film showing lemmings rushing off a cliff...was staged and thousands of innocent lemmings were killed in this terrible piece of propaganda.
