  • Easter eggs have 1 minute from the start of the match to hide.
  • Once the 1 minute hiding period is over the Eggs may not move again.

FFS I retrained the crew back to the French mediums again. I'm not wasting my Gold to repeat that.

You're assuming that the climb still exists after the HD maps.

 

Anyhow, I'm interested, although I've yet to decide whether to go as easter egg or as hunter.

Assuming, of course, that I can participate as either.

Ohh of course. Didnt think of that. But knowing WG, they probably will forget one ;)

Why not both ? Since there is only one hunter in the game just switch from egg to hunter.

Everyone who wants a go as the hunter will have a chance. :)

A chance to see and kill the SU-76I

  • One hunter per game

 

Time commitment

If the event has similar participation as the LT derpy this would mean having a 160min time period just for the hunt alone assuming the time limit is the 10mins that is usually on Assault. Add a few mins for the setup and players switching from easter eggs to hunter as well as having a drink or other real life stuff.

 

As an example 9:30pm GMT is 11:30pm local time for me so having to commit for a ~3h event can pose its own issues.

 

Quitting before others due to unfair plane, getting late, unforeseen real life stuff

Is understandable BUT -1 possible Easter egg for others to find. The 1st Hunter might have 15 Easter eggs to find while the 16th Hunter may have only 10.

 

Block Quote

  •  Easter Eggs must drive tier III tanks.

 

Unspecified Easter egg

Fast tanks are able to get further during the 1min hiding period, likewise an Easter egg using UE-57 with full camo crew, paint and camonet has an advantage when it is his turn to hunt.

Specified Easter egg

Everyone needs to have that tank researched and bought

 

Block Quote

  •  Hunters must have the HUD disabled.

 

Crew skills

As a Hunter Sit.awareness and Recon will help Easter eggs to become visible from further away, whether or not you will be able to see them is a whole other story.

 

Having 6th sense trained is a real advantage since you will still be able to hear it go off which alerts you to the fact that somewhere in a bush nearby there's an Easter egg to be found. (if the egg is running a 50% crew they will be blind and trigger the 6th sense at close proximity)

I think primary profession level (or the penalty to it) doesn't affect camouflage; any camo crew should do.

"Any camo crew" doesn't really apply when I have only one French crew with decent training. The other is crap, only on like, 50% of the 2nd skill.

The time limit shall be 6 minutes per round. The idea is not to find all the eggs, it will be next to impossible (you'll know if you saw the "Blind mans buff" event last week, I drove within 1inch of a locust and had no idea he was there) but to find as many as you can. Bare in mind that if we get too many people, rules can always be "altered" to suit such as 2 or even 3 hunters. We always have a trial run first to iron out kinks.

 

As an example 9:30pm GMT is 11:30pm local time for me so having to commit for a ~3h event can pose its own issues.

The idea is just for fun, doesn't matter if you get 1 inch or 1 mile from the spawn, finding the eggs is going to be a problem wherever they are.

Trust me when I say knowing you've been spotted (or even knowing you've spotted something) when you have no HUD enabled means absolutely nothing. Again, if you watch the event last week the HUD disabling is very, very disorientating. You have no idea where the enemy tanks are. It's irrelvent if the eggs SS is activated, as they are not allowed to move.

 

 

Join in and see for yourself, you can even be the first hunter :P
