Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

This is a small event from today (1Jul) until 13Jul where you complete missions to build a themed hot rod of your choice and/or compete on a team. As mentioned, there are also teams to be formed for a racing competition. Heads up, I will be on the Preps team cause that camo is super fly.....Errr. the bee's knees! 

 

Don't worry though you can earn all three camos since it only depends on what style of car you build. You will need to log in to the dedicated landing page HERE.

YOU HAVE TO LOG IN TO THE SITE TO GET THE MILES!

 

The racing competition requires you to select a team: (Be cool like me and select the Preps.)

 

Click HERE to join the Preps.

 

Click HERE to join the Greasers.

 

Click HERE to join the Nerds.

 

If you are running out of time, you can also buy some bundles that offer miles. However, you don't need those cause you are a badass Prep!

 

For more information on this event and the prizes you can earn, click HERE.

Why is there no leader board? EU has one in the article.

 

Anyway kinda bummed that there is only enough points to get one style and a skin after finishing the mandatory cars.

So if I'm reading this right you get 100 point per day from missions?  For a total of 1200 points if you complete the missions every day.  To complete all three cars will take 900 points, so your left with 300 points or enough for a 2d style and one of the 3d styles.  

 

Gotta love the events designed to try to get people to spend money.

 

On that note which team was everyone joining?

Quick question.  Are there any items that can be bought more than once with miles?

 

I would have 300 points left over after completing all three cars.  Everything else adds up to 1,050 miles.  Minus 300 means a 750 deficit.  Or a 450 point surplus with 1,200 miles.

 

300 miles pack is 15% more expensive than the 1,200 miles pack but it guarantees that no miles are wasted.  Plus I only buy what I want the most.

 

Is it worth it? Hmm choices...

 

P.S.  Have you ever gone whale watching?  If you haven't, just hang out in this thread to see who hasn't received their 1,200 miles  :trollface:

To get all the pieces for the cars you need 900 miles, to get 900 miles in 12 days you need 75 a day. You can earn max 100 a day doing all the missions every single day, leaving you at 1200 miles to buy just a 2D and a 3D style.

One hell of a grind. The Strv 103B style is cool but sincerely doesn't seem worth the effort unless you're some top tier player that can get 10k base xp in 10 battles with ease.

The true rewards were the ones we got along the way :P

I joined the greasers because their medal is the coolest, lol. Not sure I'm going to get any medal, though. This would be better suited to something like the Chaffee/Leopard/T-50 races instead of a dull grindfest.

Also did anyone else notice it's the factions from Rockstar's "Bully"? That was a nice touch.

Alright so KB said he is joining Preps, so I’m assuming everyone is going to choose Preps right?

It doesn't really matter what team you join, except for which design of medal you want. Winning team get a x2 weekend or something, whatevs.

 

I'd actually try to pick the least popular team, as then you might have a better chance to be in the top 100. But god only knows how to predict which team will have the least players.

This isn't quite my thing but I applaud you guys for trying to do something different than just recycling the same events over and over, kudos

But is it top 100 for people within the team or for all "racers"?

Great question - hopefully a mod can answer. Not explained in the rules.

 

I assumed because on the EU server they have the leaderboards broken out by teams, that it would be by how well you do in your own team.

 

Also, on the EU site, they only list the top 1000 in each team (last place for Bronze), which leads me to believe that it is how you rank in your own team, and not out of everyone.

 

But that has not been officially stated.

The biggest question I have is if you can buy the same item multiple times with miles, otherwise buying 1200 miles will lead to a wasted surplus of miles.

This is the issue I have.  I have excess miles and cannot buy an item more than once.   Wish it told us you can only buy one item from the bonus items after completing the cars.

I bought a bundle to support and I got the 2D style unlocked as I completed the car. So as far as I'm aware if you can unlock all 3 cars, you get all the 2D styles with the option to purchase multiple(?)

This event looked so good at first.
Then I did the math as everyone else already, and the result is that 'celebrating America's Hot Rod Subculture' is just another cash grab for WG. Unless you are willing to do a lot of grinding, but that ruins the enjoyment of the game for me. And don't have that kind of time either. 
I could buy the bundles but just for a 3D style it's not worth it - even if the STRV looks awesome.
On a side note I made it a personal rule not to spend money on WoT until WG does something about the real issues players complain about, instead of working on new types of stickers
