With apologies for being overly positive, I kinda like it. Normally I look at these and think, nope I really can’t be bothered doing that but this one has just about the right balance between being doable and giving me an incentive to play.

 

I think it’s about it giving me a goal/structure to play and I’m trying to do it in my Valentine II just because I can. So more of these mini events WG.

Seconded. I don't really care too much, but it's nice to have some goals when the tank/credit grinding is too much.

Hoping for some more interesting rewards. Special camo patterns, for instance. Put the crayon-muncher to work on a piece of paper and put it on the same expressway to game implementation as the Defender and .

Yes it's good, anything free front of the line, just for normal playing....

I kinda got bored with the whole grinding lines to get a tank that either I end up not liking or is no better than one I already have so this is ideal for me. The game this morning to get today’s token. Really rather fun, go to the undefended flank, against even my limited judgement, load gold and then go for it. Auto aim on a Type 95 while they try and get their turret to turn - what’s not to like.

Generally I go for apathy but who doesn’t like to buck a trend.

I've found it gives me a reason to actually play the game, and I already have the Valentine II :)

Dearest Jabster,

Have you been nerfed?

And of course playing the Val II in a 3 man toon, fully loaded with dinger gold is great fun, spreads the love and does make those you destroy immensely grateful.... it brings a tear to my eye

But jabba, why would you like an incentive to play? You don't even like to play, so why spent time on it.

I am doing it every day in my AMX 40 just for fun. Took me 10 games yesterday for 1500 blocked ;)

Just waiting for the news release saying that Jabster is joining WarGaming as the new head of events. Seriously I read the first post and immediately thought of "There is a disturbance in the force"

I think I managed it in five maybe six games in the Valentine. How I laughed when a derp Hetzer bounced.

Is it possible to play it without gold?

It's given me a reason to log in every day so far, but half of the missions I've done on the first battle of the day. Reward isn't anything special, but with my current predicament of being chronically broke I'll welcome the credits with open arms:great:

Of course it is possible, just not practical.

Far be it from you to enjoy your low tier tanks Jabster ;)

 

In answer to the gold question. Yes it is, unless you want to compete.

I think you’ll find that if you try to enter battle without at least a half-and-half loadout you’ll get a warning message saying WTF are you some kind of idiot. WG are nice like that.

You can. But only if you like a 20 to 10% chance to pen most tanks like the AMX 40 on even the rear lower plate. Or bounce all day on the Hetzer's sloped front. Thus why I think most won't care to much for the reward in general.

 

Tho as for the event? Not complaining. I don't mind all the free stuff they toss in there besides the tank.. that I already have.
