Like the event. My only complaint was the prime time. This is plain outright stupid.

I figured it would come sooner or later.  Thanks for the vote of confidence.  :bush:

Maybe not diplomatic, but he isn't wrong.... I guess tough love to prevent frustration for you later.

Just think: a brand new player to WoT, and I'm talking someone who started yesterday, could have jumped into a Tier X rental tank and just ran around like a madman.

No experience, no knowledge of the mechanics. Nothing. He just showed up.

FAIL

 

 I can’t even fathom how some of the players could have kept up in tier X spamming gold, and brother was it spammed. 

Every.

Last. 

Round...was premium ammo this past week...100%... How can they afford that with a few hundred battles? Oh wait, they bought tier 8 premiums..nvm. 

As a result, I saw 55%ers camping in their mediums heavys and lights, and 40%ers with 1k battles melting in seconds...fun stuff.

 I didn't use any premium ammo for this event, no need to.

 Finished level 12 yesterday after taking a few days off.

Grats on the WR -- I didn't fare that well coming in at just under 46%. I didn't play any of the rentals. I did use a variety: the Sheridan, M60, 121B, 140, and a bunch of the heavies, but ended up using the 268 V4 and the GW E100 the most I think. 

 

Overall, I did enjoy the event. Made it to level 13 and was disappointed didn't get the 1100 bonds I saw for completing level three.

Yeah, neither did I in brawling or sniping tanks. One only needs to aim. The only premium I used was the Death Star and 4K5 HESH, and that’s only for consistent dependability issues. I can’t wait for the HEAT and APCR ammo rebalance as there’s going to be a lot of shocked players wondering where all their damage went off to.  

What I meant was I was getting nailed 100% of the time with premium rounds, obviously we never met or my jaw would be still hanging down from meeting someone who aims with AP. Its actually refreshing to be hit with AP, and when I see it in the hit logs I silently high 5 that player.

Hehe,

 If I was to have used premium ammo, I would have been hemorrhaging credits. Tier X is not for making credits, bonds yes, credits NO.

 I was getting hit by the premium stuff as well, c'est la vie.

Didn't stop me from grinding out the levels. All done with rental tanks, whodda thunkit.

Let me give you the bad news OP.    Your experience is completely invalid, and you're going to get your turret bashed in.   I wish I could see your face when you grind down the line, get your t10 wz5a and discover that your experience in the rental was a lie.  That a thousand other fools in rentals completely warped your perspective on what its actually like.   Of course if you had bothered to read at all about the complaints that rentals had turned t10 into a zoo, you'd know that.   Have fun see you at t10.

 

Yikes.

Only BB I Played, my 140....   I'm Grinding that way anyway and was at the T44, but the Removal of the 62A Sped Up my Unlocking of Tanks by Unlocking the T54 and 62A lastnight....     

 

I played 8 Battles in it when I wasn't Disgusted with the teams I was getting, otherwise the 140 and the Deathstar were my 10's of Choice...      Of the 8 Battles in the 140, I went 100% Wins, don't Ask me, I have ZERO Clue what I did Right to do it, I just Drove it....   lol        I can say though, like my IS7, it did Well for being Driven by my Obj 430 Crew despite the Lack of Training...

 

I had a 62% Hit Rate, used it at All Ranges, but I did tend to get too Close alot more Often than I wanted and RNG was being more than Unkind at the End of the Event....    It's Survival Rate was a Lowly 12%, but I enjoyed the Tank despite the RNG Kick in the Teeth....       With the 140 getting Unlocked eventually, it'll Complete the Russian Medium Triumvirate since I also Unlocked the 430U during the Event....

 

As for my Deathstar, the teams caused the Greatest Frustration for it by Dropping it's 54% WR down to 50%....    The Hit Rate went Up though for 50% to 55%, so I don't know if the Flip Flop in the Stat's was Overly Worth it, but again I had Fun in it and was the Whole Reason I wanted the Tank 5yrs ago when I first Drove it on the Test Server...      And in light of the Upcoming Changes to the Ammunition Schemes, I'm more than Happy I use the AP as my Primary instead of the Memeunitions, but I do like my Meme's too, but I like Reliability more....

 

The BB's were in Some Circumstances the Cause of alot of Losses, not because the Players couldn't Drive them, but the Newer Players had absolutely No Clue what Driving a Tier 10 was Like and who they'd Face....    Between Disasters I'd be in General Chat and see people coming in Complaining the BB's had Drained their Credits or getting Wrecked and not knowing Why or How they got Spotted, for Some it was a Learning Experience, for Others an Eye Opener....       I know I sent more than a few Packing in my 8's as well, but the 5A BB I sent back to the Garage one Game left so Fast he left his Turret Behind when he saw the Deathstar....         

 

The Limited Schedule of the Event had me pretty well Outta the Loop as well, It was Down when I got Up in the AM at 2:30am and I'd get in around 4 to 4:30pm for a Couple Hours of Play before heading to Bed around 8pm...       But Otherwise I had Fun , just woulda like to have had More of it...     If I'da made the Udes I DEFINATELY would've Driven that as I had just Unlocked it the Week Prior, but the Schedule wasn't going to Allow for that and I'm still Grinding Bonds now for my M60, only 355 More to Go and it's All Mine...     lol

Could it be that you're just bad in the t10?

I got to the Udes unlock and that's it. The server's craptastic performance kept me away from the game pretty much the whole event.
