A while back one of the on-track missions rewarded credits if you already had researched a tank and played a certain number of games with it.

 

Why did they do that and why hasn't it been done since?

I believe that Krzy and company would rather stick a finger in a wall socket than do another code.

Who is mandating these ridiculous code requirements to participate in in-game events?

   Ok KRZYBooP, here's some feedback from a player who has been doing On-Track Missions for nearly 6 years. 

 

   Like many others I don't bother anymore.  WG has taken all the incentive out of the missions with all the cut-backs on earnings and prizes.  When I first read that the missions had been extended from 14 days to the present level, I thought that was a good first step.  When the segment requirement of 25,000 was dropped to 10,000, I thought that was good.  Then I read the fine print about BASE experience only - no x2's (x3's, 4's or 5's, etc.) and a reset every 24 hours.  That is ridiculous!

 

   You need to go tell the genius who came up with this to quit throwing pencils at the ceiling tiles and actually use one to do some simple math.  Let's say the average player averages 500 XP per battle - that means he/she is expected to play a minimum of 20 battles per day running only tanks from that tech tree line.  But the fact is, most will not average 500 XP per battle.  Especially if they are on the losing side, in which case most will earn between 150 and 300 XP.  Factor in MM and RNG, and suddenly you are talking about way more than 20 battles a day.

 

   So how about you share with us how many players start an On-Track to how many quit short of the finish line?  Even if a player has nothing better to do with their time you are asking them to do a lot of play time for very little reward.  How many times can a player earn a Tier III tank that isn't even good as a crew trainer?  As a retired player with plenty of time on my hands, these missions just aren't worth wasting my time on.

 

   My suggestion?  Make the devs play these missions on a standard account - earning all the modules and tanks - and see how "enjoyable" they find the grind.  I'd love to read THAT report.

 

Edit:  Here's another suggestion - get rid of the 24 hour reset and you will make many casual players happy to take on your On-Track Missions.  For those of us who remember Gold compensation and Tier 5-7 Prize Tanks, I don't think there is a fix.  We have literally lived thru the "Golden Age" of On-Track Missions.  Many of us will research tanks and wait for the 30% discount On-Tracks offer, but that's about it.

This pretty much sums it up for a lot more people than you people at WG realize. Since the the people in Minsk or where ever the main office is have pretty much done a great job of driving away players no matter how much we [edited]most likely nothing will ever be done. so it's like why even bother coming to the forums anymore either.

And they aren't to do it during work hours. Like the average player they have to surrender their own time to do this.

You don't need the code to get the discounts, they should happen automatically.

Another dumb ontrack with Base XP required. I gave up the last one half way through when it was clear that I would not finish it and there is no point in using all the tanks, just drive the tier 7 and sometimes 6 to death, so boring.

I can't see why WG want to drive all the longtime players away, I still spend $100 or so a year on WOT. Do they not like money?
