Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Starting now (1Jun) and running until 1Jul, there are extra awards for earning specific medals. 

 

Rewards include bonus XP, consumables, equipment, and personal reserves. 

 

The player with the most specified medals earns a premium tank depending on the medal. If you already own the tanks they will be compensated in gold. 

 

For more information on the missions click HERE.

 

Good luck to everyone who participates.

The high caliber missions are the only good one here.

 

Invader mission is terrible.  If you actively hunting for it, it hurts the team because sitting in the cap does not help the team at all.  Otherwise, it is rather rare.  In my near 70K games, I only have 91 invader medals.  So that is roughly 1 in 750 games.

 

Blocking mission is also quite stupid, but since I am on 279e blocking missions, so might as well do it as well.  At least it occurs a lot more frequently.

 

Winning the premium tanks are next to impossible, but the rest of rewards are pretty nice (various styles, premium days, etc.).

Invader?  In 32k games since beta I've gotten that 56 times. Sure, I'll get 10 this month...  I think the rewards are safe, lol.

What is the logic behind events that are only realistically accessible to the top players? I'm genuinely curious. Based upon my performance in almost 22K battles, I would have to play 57, 133, and 293 battles per day to get ten each of high caliber, steal wall, and invader medals (respectively) to earn the styles. That's obviously not happening. Why structure an event with requirements so high that the majority of players don't even try?

 

I fear player skill creep is happening in WoT. If the player base shrinks to only those of the highest skill level, the game will have huge barriers for new and/or below average players.

^^ This^^

Except my numbers are likely >200 btls/day for any of them, obviously not happening.

So I'm not even looking at the 5x/10x rewards -

I'll be lucky to even get a 2x reward, so if it happens, it happens....

I've always wondered why there wasn't a 500/1,000 XP reward for getting one of these medals anyway (that cd continue past June...) -

I guess some medals give 1 or a few bonds, which is a little nice...

I understand WG's intention behind this: get more people to play, and reward the ones playing well.

 

But yet again, another failure in execution and a Massive lack of comprehension in their own game. It HAS the potential to ruin the experience of the game to some extent. Promoting single-player performance when the random plebs already lacks the minimal knowledge of bush firing, map's key positions and expecting enemies position before they are spotted. I already have trouble keeping my sanity with random teams, now; I will just avoid it.

 

Most people won't bother since the requirements for top reward are insane, and they probably will reach lvl 2 or 3 rewards. I mean, it's better then a slap in the face, but some large consumables, one gun rammer and a little extra XP per games... IMO, that's not even worth making a website page/ announcement/ event.

 

Happy to take a break, see you next month.

Will there be at least a leaderboard to check our standings? I'd only bother trying for a premium if I know i'm close, otherwise I would be wasting an entire month grinding for nothing.

Rewarding top scores in video games used to just mean putting your three initials on the list and walking away. These are incentives to top players and others willing to try at the challenge. 

 

If you also notice there are other missions based on specifics this month so you can knock out more than one with a Russian tank. 

 

These missions are always on and repeatable.

I was surprised but I completed them on the weekend.

Almost finished HC like 20 times to be foiled by bad teams that just fold. Only got 1 over weekend and need 1 more but at the end of my rope on this one. Steel wall the same...every time I get high damage blocked, my team folds and I don't survive or the guy with equivalent armor out does me by like 1 round of ammo blocked. Invader I pretty much begged my team not to kill the last guy and got 1 more.

 

I may get HC done but the others will probably slip by. I think they really need to rethink Invader. I got lots of them before they loaded up faster tanks into the game. There was a time in a one on one whoever made the cap first would win because tanks were just slow and you couldn't make it across to reset. Now that is near impossible. I probably had 40 cap points before an enemy shows or another player sticks his butt in the cap. They screwed the Burda medal up and haven't adjusted anything else as far as I can tell but there have been major changes to the game.

 

I complete every other mission out there but these may be a bridge too far...first time to fail at something I wanted I guess. It has to be near perfect setting for me to grab these in today's game and I get few of those games and more lemming squads than I can shake a stick at. Frustrating...

Yeah...pretty sure I am [edited]...fired 5 shots at the same tank and all went short or over...rest of the time no problem hitting. The WG RNG aggregator has me [edited].

Know the feeling...I got to 97 and the round ended. Why!?!!??!!

 

 

I helped on one and gave a guy 80 and then rolled into the cap while protecting him...Invader is damn near impossible these days. I did clear out HC mission...FINALLY! Trying to get SW but teams keep failing me a lot.

 

Does anyone know what Epic Medal gives you extra on this?
