So we all know that BP points earned up until the start of chapter 4 do not count towards that chapter. But are chapter 4 points added to your overall accrued total? Does your "regular" BP point total stay static during chapter 4? Anyone hear anything about how this works?

It looks like it according to this section from the article...

The progression system works in the same way as in the main Chapters but for a limited period of time. Upon completing it, you will receive a brand-new Premium vehicle for free. Now let’s see what the Chapter's main differences are and dig into the details.

  • You earn Battle Pass Progression Points according to the standard rules, based on the results of the battle. Battle Pass Core Vehicles—the X g89_leopard1_icon.svg Leopard 1 , the X s16_kranvagn_icon.svg Kranvagn , and the  X a83_t110e4_icon.svg T110E4 —still have increased Point Limits and can earn more Points in battles, assuming you haven't reached their Point Limits.
  • You also earn Points for completing Daily Missions and the Bonus Mission.
  • You will be rewarded with additional Battle Pass Points when the Point Limit for a vehicle has been reached, even if you started filling the Limit before the start of this Chapter.

It is unclear whether the progression points will be lost if you start the4th stage.  Or will they be reinstated after the 4th stage event is over.

I'm more interested in whether or not you can work on one of the first 3 Chapters WHILE working on the 4th Chapter. 

In the past, when a "marathon" and BP coincided, players were able to earn credit towards both at the same time. This new "4th Chapter" is essentially a new "marathon" event. 

However, according to what I've heard, you have to "pause" your progression in whichever of the first 3 Chapters you might still be working on in order to "start" the 4th Chapter. So, what it's sounding like is that you can no longer work on "normal" BP while also attempting to earn a free tank.

 

But, again, WG is being a bit cryptic and vague about it....so we'll just have to see when it starts.

my guesses for what it is worth.

If you changed chapters from #1 to #3 before finishing #1, your points earned for #3 did not count for chapter #1.  That would be doubling up and it is not likely that chapter 4 will be any different.

I do expect that points that can be used in the store, will continue to accumulate exactly the same for chapter 4 and what comes after.  Points don't expire until end of May when the season ends.

I just spent mine on bonds since I had everything else. Got me another improved equipement. I just wish tokens were worth more in bonds. Since I have no desire for the rest of the reward tanks. I may buy thhem and sell them just to make a few credits.

I've come to the conclusion that when you activate Chapter 4 (which you need to do to start it), you pause progress on whatever other chapter you're working on. So those BP points will remain and when chapter 4 is over you can restart that other chapter with your BP points preserved.

I agree.  But If you have two chapters done and are 2000 points into your last one= 7000 points, and you pause and go into chapter 4, I believe the rumored 2000 points to complete the 40 stages, will be added to your total = 9000.  Then after you complete chapter 4 (or time is up, meaning less than 2000 points) , you activate the chapter you were on to complete it which would give you a total of 9500 points for the store.  Yes? No??  I could very well be out to lunch on this . :hiding:

 

9500 BP points = all four chapters done completely.

So everything above is correct, but to help with making it easier to understand this is how it works.

You activate this Chapter 4 manually if you are interested in earning the free tank and everything that goes with it. Your progress on the other chapter stops and once you complete Chapter 4 you will be back right where you left off. 

 

Your BP points that you earn while Chapter 4 is active unlocks the stages as you go. Nothing else is changing from how the BP points are earned. If you are not interested in the new tank then you don't have to activate anything and can just continue on with your normal WoT BP scheduling. 

Hope that helps in clearifying.

I've actually finished the three chapters and continued to accumulate BP points. I have like 1950 presently. So yeah, it could make sense that I would have 3950 after finishing chapter 4. But I strongly suspect on finishing chapter 4 those 2000 BP points will vanish (as they were arguably spent on the premium tank) and I'll be left with 1950 BP points and can accumulate more for the rest of the week that BP runs.

I am just slightly less at 11500-(2*camo's) =1500.  I guess we will find out the answer soon enough.  I hope it keeps adding up so I can get to 15000- camo's by end of May.  Cheers

Nope...I was wrong.  Chapter 4 just counts your current stage,  not points.  Too bad.  Wishful thinking I guess.  Cheers

Looks like they continue to acrue. I had @ 1950, with the three chapters completed, before the event started yesterday and as I played and completed stages in chapter four, they accumulated. I now have like 2150 or something. And since the tank is listed as a reward for completing the final stage, it does not deduct points for it. So with a bit of humping I should reach 5k points and get the last 3D style I want.

Thats interesting.  So I may have been correct but it just doesn't show on the normal counter in garage?  Going to have to check tonight. Cheers

Well I ended up getting to the end of stage 8 in chapter 4 and just said the hell with it, took the discount, and paid gold for the remaining stages because the tank looked downright evil, playing against it and I had the gold to spare. I got the tank and the 2000 BP points for the whole chapter, so now I have 4100-something. Definitely will have enough for the 3D style by the close of the event.
