Hmm, so how small or large is 11k top players? Sounds pretty small, actually.

 

So does getting in top 11k players depends only on being able to participate in the battles? No win requirement / survival / kills / damage / etc. ?

How many reward tanks did previous campaigns issue?

Only 11K players will receive a special tank ( and pay 4K bonds) or I if I have 4K bonds on my acc will be able to receive a special tank. I mean if i not in 11K players but I have 4K bonds I cant get a special tank?

 

wow, reading is hard....

 

these rules... you need a team of lawyers per clan to sort out what to do and how it affects pointz haha. usually less is more is a golden and good rule, but here we have more is more..

If you are in the top 11K of the players you can use your bonds to exchange them for reward vehicles. But it can be possible that you are in the top 11K on personal fame points but your clan is low on fame points. Then there is the possibility that you wont get enough bonds to get yourself a reward tank eventhough  you are in the top 11 K. Or is this not true?

Some changes here and there it seem :D

 

As I said in another thread:

Well, I don't have many additional bonds, probably around 300 as I never play ranked and only get them from randoms.

 

I sincerely hope that Wargaming does not screw me over with these shenanigans or it will be the last campaign I participate in.

 

If I'm in the top 11000 players in terms of FapPoints/Clan performance I expect to get a tank.

 

Let's see how we can do this time but since I already have most reward tanks I'll be picking up the 121B if I get a chance as the VK2701 doesn't appeal to me and I got the rest.

 

Bit meagre rewards for 3 weeks of dedicated play every evening though.

I just made a seperate post where i estimated using last years campaing how many players would earn enough bonds for a tank. I estimated that only the top 2000 would get at least the 4k bonds required for the tank.

 

Detailed explanation in here: http://forum.worldof...4#entry15027534

 

Because of this issue I am wondering if the rules will be changed to allow the entire top 11k to get a tank without additonal expenses by giving them a choice between bonds/tank or making the tank a set reward for the top 11k with an additional (lower) amount of bonds

 

edit, I was a potato and messed up, the top 7k-8k should be good on bonds

4k bonds for a prize tank. That is less than a special equipment. So for those that have all tanks already, this campaign is really not that interesting.

 

Campaigns used to draw old players in because of their unique rewards and to be frank I have been waiting the entire friggin year for this one, just to be terribly disapointed because there is no new tank offered. WG became such a sad company lately.

You can't choose a tank if you don't perform well in the campaign.

Interesting mechanics at first sight but TOTALLY GARBAGE rewards.

 

A top player in the winning clan will earn 7k bonds + 2k gold (200k between 100) for like 3 weeks of playing, that's totally absurd. And we are asumming that you don't have all the CW reward tanks,because if you do (like me), the campaign is even less rewarding.

 

Even looking from an average player perspective it will be really hard to earn the 4k bonds to pay for the tank, so in practice this campaign is just a bond sink to remove them from the system (for whatever reason).

 

I hope that in this week WG changes the prizes to do this event much more compelling for players and clans alike.

Will rephrase for Firefly:

 

So for those that have all tanks already and can still perform well, this campaign is not that interesting. :P

Which is harder to achieve? Being in the top 11k by fame points to get a reward tank or being in the top 25% of players to get the desert camo?

 

Edit: the top 25% of players who got into that "threshold thingy".

Top 11k is harder but you wont get a reward tank, instead you will be able to trade your current bonds + some you just earned for the reward tank. If you dont have (a lot) of bonds currenlty you will need to finish in the top 2k and be a member of a top 100 clan

WG, is there a reason, you limit the amount of reward tanks, you can buy for bonds, to 1?

 

As a player who started very late with CW, I missed the chance to earn reward tanks in earlier campaigns. I am sure there are a lot of people out there who would also love to catch up on those reward tanks. And while I definitely can understand the players who earned those tanks in earlier campaigns saying that they should be exclusive to those who fought there, I think you could loosen this restriction a bit, maybe to 2.

 

What do you guys think, especially those who got all reward tanks. Would you grant players like me the chance to catch up more quickly?

Like i mentioned before:

- Let people Exchange their bonds the whole year for reward tanks.

- add tier 8 and Some more x reward tanks as the is5 or t22 med for example.

 

this way people can just play and get bonds in whatever mode they want.
