Thanks to everyone who participated!

Definitely hear you guys asking for more deputies - it does seem like we might have the interest to add another clan's worth of deputies.  It's a bit of a process getting them created and added to the mission, and but we will definitely look and see if it's possible.

Happy Tanking!

Not for nothing but I saw more Sheriffs this past weekend than I ever have.  Many thanks for making that happen!

This was a fun time and many thanks to you folk at WG for setting the event up and letting me cause havoc with as a deputy.  Hope I can help out again sometime.

 

I quite enjoyed switching between running tanks that are challenging to fight to make tankers work for the reward and more gimmicky tanks/strats to give out some easy gold.

I definitely had fun being a deputy. Gave away as much gold as possible, but made people work for it too. :)

It would be nice to have more deputies but I realize there has to be limitations of administration efforts and aggregate value of the gold given out.


Consider for illustrative purposes only:


If 100 people were to deputized and all 100 played at the same time, and if there were say 14000 players online, then the deputy-to-player ratio would be 1:140 (and 14000 is a low number.).

Clearly, the odds of seeing a deputy are small; the odds of playing against a deputy are even smaller.

I was deputized last December. I played more than most but less than others, 130 battles.

Using 130 as a start point:
130 x 7 min/game (avg?) = 910 minutes of play
910 min/60 min= just over 15 hours
15 hours/2.3 days of the event play time= ~6.4 hours/day

That is a lot of play time for anyone who has a life and/or family obligations, especially over one of the last weekends before school/college resumes. (I was able to give 6+ hours/day because as a retiree, my life/family obligations were fewer than many of you reading this post)

Consequently, I hope but do not expect to see a red deputy during the event.
Whether I see a deputy or not, I really appreciate the event.

 

 

Assuming your figures are correct, that's exactly what I experienced. I played a lot of games, and seen only one. Lucky for me, the sheriff was on the opposing team, but unfortunately, instead of trying to win the game, the sheriff avoided confrontation the entire game without taking a single shot from us. Our team captured the flag while they ran away with numbers.

That's probably why they have certain times where all the Deputies are supposed to be playing certain tiers. There were times when we had 4 Deputies in 1 game before.

I couldn't participate as good and efficient as in previous iterations since the account I received was bugged. The client or server kicked me all the time. After a battle I was kicked. if I just got into garage and idle for 8 seconds without pressing battle button, I was kicked. If I took more than 5 seconds to choose another tank I was kicked. It was simply annoying and i couldn't play as much as I wanted, so I got into wheeled French tanks and other light tanks that were fast and weak to maximize gold giving.

A couple of nights ago I managed to destroy 2 deputies in one game and I got 250 gold.

 

Is this normal or should I have gotten 500?

I checked the result after game and confirmed the kills were by me.

 

Cheers.

Edit:  Also, if you are only rewarded 250 gold no matter how many deputies you destroy is there any un-written etiquette to leave other deputies for other players?
