In this event, we pitch artillery and tank against one another.  Which do you prefer?  Play and destroy the other to win gold.  That’s the aim of this event!

Full news text

Clarifications:

Tank = direct fire asset (Light/Heavy/Medium tank, TD)
SPG = Artillery = indirect fire asset


Basic condition: Team A AND Team B have to have 4 SPGs each at least (8 arties in total)

Category "Tank": Player has to drive a tank or TD and destroy 3 or more SPGs
Category "SPG": Player has to drive SPG and destroy 3 or more tanks/TDs

SPG's killing SPG's doesn't count.  The SPG players need to kill light/med/heavy tanks or TDs.


In the e-mail subject write what were you driving (IE which category you are).
Player Karkamusa played a "tank" (IE Light, Medium, Heavy, TD), scored 4 kills of enemy arty: [Behind the Lines] Karkamusa – Tank – 4
Player karkamusa played a SPG and killed 6 tanks/TDs:  [Behind the Lines] Karkamusa – SPG – 6.

Yeah, something useful to do in arti parties. This might lessen the pain until they fix it :)

"The battles must have at least 4 SPGs in each team"
So battles with 8 arties are accepted ?

Will it need 4 artys per team also for arty killing 3 tanks?
or does it need at least 4 tanks per team?

I think it will be easier for arty but will try for both.

They have already previously recognised the arty party problem so it is good to see that there is some event that pays people for having to put up with the current set up.  I like it a lot :)

Hmm...I think random fights are chaotic enough. If now half the team rushes to get the arty kill... and if I consider how bad many teams protect their own arty. This won´t be fun for arty, I guess.
As long as this event lasts I won´t play arty, rather TD. It´s frustrating enough to get scout-killed in normal encounters, :Smile_sceptic:

Nevertheless: Keep up with the events. There are surely always some players who don´t like - and those who love them.

From the Rules section of the announcement:

Quote

The battles must have at least 4 SPGs in each team.

So I think what that means is that any valid fight must have 4 SPGs in each team...

Im too negative? I'm more like pissed. So how would I make it better (good)? Simple: remove the 4 arty/team and you need to be in a platoon where you are the only arty.

Minus from me.

Not so easier, because arty must compete with the other 3 arty in the game, and survive enemy scouts and counter arty from the enemy team. Will be the easier for the skilled scouts.

First, you guys posted the rules just 12 hours after the Start of the event. Good Job.

When a lot of players are complaining about battles with 3+ artys you create an event where one of the conditions of participating is 4 or more artys per team.


I guess now I have really seen it all. Good troll.

Explain me one thing please. How is it possible that we are informed about an event LATER than it starts?
This event was published around 11 a.m on 23rd but this event is on going since midnight (0 a.m. on 23rd)

take your bold text and **** off.  They have already said in LOTS of places that they were aware of the arty problem and they will be fixing it in the next patch.  But, whilst we are stuck with the arty parties then it nice that there is a small upside to it that we can actually get some gold.  I really don't see the problem with them doing something positive out of a bad situation.
