Like seriously, they couldn't get the effin' effect on the tanks right - they float farther behind you the faster you go :D

 

And I love how they couldn't make us gather a lot more matter into a common loot pool, that would then be shared at the end of the game - this would mean, that afkers wouldn't hurt you and you wouldn't have people gathering 4 gm and waiting until the rest of the team gathers 150. Afkers would just get nothing, which would mean the team gets more matter and jerks that gather 4 would just hurt their own income.

 

Also love how I'm getting shot without seeing the damn bots out of nowhere sometimes, or how the mode doesen't have a chart on what essences do.

 

The mode is a good idea executed extremely poorly and lazily and Wargaming should be ashamed of themselves for even putting it out there.

I couldn't imagine grinding up to 13, I paid gold to unlock on day 4, best gold I ever spent. From the 50% extra credits, so far I have been able to fund 2 T IX and 1 T X purchases. Thank you WG.

It was uneventful and boring tbh. Fun the first few times. But then it got repetitive and old really fast. I wanted to do them for the free XP missions. Luckily they cut the requirements in half on the last one. This was nothing but a grind. As several WG staff have been on this forum to say they wanted to create a fun mode for us too. Well... IMO they failed. 

 

To make it less painful of a grind and less repetitive they should have randomized the locations of the meds and lights and the single matters. Even anomalies was placed at the same 5 spots all the time. The games I got the most of, as in 270 or even 300+ were those with the ROF anomaly where you kill a HT in 10 seconds solo. And you barely got 150 when there were no anomalies. As that were most games. So they could have done so much more with anomalies to make the game fun, vs just ROF, speed and some bonus drops now and then. 

 

That and the map info. Unless you constantly look at the map, you have no idea who woke up whom and ran away. As I got raped by 3 lights and their insane ROF when moving to a different group several times. Or a hidden HT on hill took 90% of my HP off as I crossed field to one of the med groups. A red circle on groups that have been woken up, but not killed would be helpful.

So you support having crappy modes each year, that you need to grind over and over to get a crappy camo?

I actually think they made it boring and crap on purpose, so that people'll buy it for 5-3K gold.

There's a lot of room to complain and this game is getting worse because of people like you, who just gulp on anything Wargaming dishes out.

  • Yes it was repetitive and hence boring especially as you progress along the stages.
  • It showed the extreme lack of coordination and optimization between a team of only 5 players.
  • The rewards was actually quite good. Credits bonuses, 30k free XP and a good looking camo.
  • Compared to last year event, it's much better but a little uneventful. It just needed some in battle events like the anomalies but more frequent.

 

GG WG!

This year's event is kinda OK, but it is kinda disappointing that there is no Win/Loss distinction, you just collect green stuff, shoot a few zombie tanks, and that's it.

 

Killing the Leviathan last year was much more satisfying (plus the trill when the Leviathan started to turn it's main cannon towards you, that wasn't bad)

40k free exp was only thing worth the effort, for that would take 800k of exp in random battles, months of playing time...

I bet if someone gave you a thousand kilos of dog sh*t you'd be happy because it's free.

Could be worse, you could have ground the lot out to level 13, played hardly any randoms, got hardly any benefit since you play mostly team/skirmishes, even the 13 icon doofah doesn't work, so all for an orange stripry camo...

 

ask me how I know :ohmy:

It was quite fun for me maybe first 4 levels, but then it is just boring braindead farming. I am surprised I made it to level 7 for 32 % credit bonus and 80 % free xp, and I simply can't imagine playing this event to max level 13. I don't want to criticise WG for this event, nothing like that, but this event could be effective punishment if I was in prison :teethhappy: If only I could find some chimpanzee who could learn some basics and then I would let him farm my level 13 for bananas.

 

It's also funny how you can easily outplay some bots, and then you cross graveyeard where that 3 little cockroaches spawn and they hit everything everytime and rip your dreams.

imho, its ok.

 

- I don't really need the bonuses, but I might grind a bit to get the 13 mark.

- the mode itself is relaxing compared to RNG.

 

On the negative side,  could've been more random in spawning the bots.

Hey, beggars can't be choosers, and we know that the NPC's are happy with anything they get as they lack any ability to distinguish between nuances of gray.

If you dry the stuff, you can heat the house on it during the winter and buy yourself a Defender (Oops, 252u that is) with the savings.

If you afk and/or don't collect 5( figure might be wrong), you get no rewards. I afk'd at a start of the match as my missus was calling for me at night time and I got a warning, forfeit of xp, goo etc after 1 afk.
