Dear Wargaming,

In regards to the most popular event in WOT history, Soldier of Fortune campaign, I must say maybe in the name of part of the community, I'm disappointed.
We always pay to get all the new things and we have been doing this for the last 8 years. We love the game and we hope it has a great future.
It is totally unfair towards all the players waiting for this global map event out of which most missed or took days off work, were absent from school and have invested such large amount of time for nothing.
In the previous Arms Race campaign, only 25K players were competing with a reward pool of 9k places, out of which only 36% were rewarded award vehicles.
Now, in Soldier of Fortune campaign, there were more than twice as many players (almost 55K), but the reward pool is 10K players which means that 18% of players playing in the event will be given award vehicles.
And yet, only extra 800 places were added to the 10k players eligible for getting a reward vehicle, because the servers were down in the first day.
So twice the players, half the rewards.
It is not fair at all.
Please consider increasing the amount of places eligible for reward vehicles by at least 10%, if not at least to match the same ratio as in the previous campaigns for our community to celebrate biggest campaign.
I bet, you, Wargaming, didn't expect this amount of players to take part in this campaign, 10K places were just a bit over 9K in previous campaign, you were expecting around same number of players and yet ... surprise, the player pool increased, it doubled, so reward the players.

 

Thank you

giving out an extra 10k tanks seems way too overkill to me tbh

not to mention CW campaign arms race got that few players so far im aware as there was no vk and 907 rewarded

the only reasons to add tanks are the following I believe

 

We had absurd problems during the first 2-3 days during the CWs

 

Personally, as I have found with others, the lag during the CWs seems to increase compared to random battles during the event which I found until tonight playing with an average ping of about 130ms [managing to play decently]

 

And the WG above all should do something against the CLANS who sell for money [and other methods of payment] the place in the clan to play

Something that everyone knows ... and that nobody contrasts

winning the tanks in the Arms Race was much easier

This sounds like, hey why there are just 3 medals (gold, sliver, bronze). Its not fair, lets give medal for first 50% of people competing. I mean :amazed:

On other hand, I think that WG should give some sort of participation ribbon for every player that participated (Im not participating by the way) and some sort of consolation prize/tank for much wider population of players.

good idea cuz this campaign was hard for average clans and most of this clan's players didn't get the tank , let's hope that WG increase it to 12 k at least .

Not every bob deserves a tier X CW reward tank, but other rewards should be better, because bobs invest a lot of time aswell.

What's the point of reward if everyone would get it easily?

well bro i will answer you.
first you said you playing this game for along 8 years and ur account still 4k PR ! and this is a disaster ! sec you said u paid for things in this game , i'll tell you bro you can't take everything with money and you have to know what is exactly the (reward) word mean the prize for the players that fought hard in this campaign ... 
the resume is if you deserve the tank you get it ! easy!? + i'd support the idea of giving more 200 place not to double the reward places because there's no taste if you find a noob playing with a reward tank like (907 or vk ..) i guess it's understandable

And why does it have to be fair? It was designed to be a competition. If it was fair, there wouldn't be need for a 2 week period of battles and wasting so much time on organizing/waiting/fighting the battles. It's same story every campaign...

Adding additional places (for requests like this)  is just slap in the face to all players and fcs who were good enough to make it on the list.

Get better, get rewarded. Equality and fairness don't exist.

Hello.

I give you some numbers.

 

EU
Total players: 55608
10,800 position points:22995
% of players with tank: 19,4% (10800/55608)

 

NA
Total players: 8817
2,700 position points:15307
% of players with tank: 30,6% (2700/8817)

 

NA Player with score as EU: 1335 (at least 22995 Fame points)
% of players with tank if same points on EU: 15,14% (1335/8817)


EU Player with score as NA: 13101 (at least 15307 Fame points)
% of players with tank if same points on NA: 23,55% (13101/55608)

 

So, even "balancing" the event would be a decent amount of players MORE, receiving the prize.

Would be fair to see an adjustment.

Or not?

 

Rod
