Fun fact, recruitment points are broken. But.... what is more fun is how are they broken. At some random time the conditions for receiving the points are changing.

 

Instead of making damage more then your HP, you actually have to deal less damage then your HP, otherwise you will not get any points.  If you are a lucky bot and your team wins, then you get 4. 

 

So... I told him to... yo-lo to enemy lines for now, once the logic inverts. That way he will get his reward tank in no time. I am so glad we have this lobster man as a crew skin.... Very useful update.

 

 

P.S. perhaps some of our money could be spend to train developers to create unit tests and test automation. does wonders for the quality.

Seems to be random whether you will receive recruitment points atm... sometimes you get them even if you didnt do anything, sometimes you win and did more than enough damage and don't get anything... seems like last patch broke it :>

Yep, they [edited] it up....

Also the points for epic medals were nerfed to hell - from 10 points per medal before, now you get only 5.

 

Another thing, when you play platoon is like playing alone - you receive the same points overall for a regular game.

 

Congratulations WG, you managed to f*ck up one of the only good things introduced lately!

you still have to do more damage/get assist then the hp of your tank. just checked.

I do agree they changed the number of point you get.. now I doubt that my recruit will finish the 3 stages before the time ends..

I guess that's a bug, your recruit could wait a day or two for a micro patch.

I have lost over 100 points , I have attached screen shots to the ticket i made to show the battle results etc, and receive 0 points in the last few matches to try and help them.

They have now closed the ticket saying people are looking into my issue.

First match I play I get points then from that battle onward you get none at all. I had 4 medals and should get 44 in one match and got nothing etc....

If we understood how it was broken, it would be fixed by now, we've reported it and aware of it, currently investigating :(

Do you know if any points, that were not received due to this bug, will be awarded later (once the bug has been fixed) or will those points be lost to the void forever?

Well.... I know how it was broken. New changes were made. And not enough test automation is there to catch the issue before the release.

Basically, it seems that the trigger to give/or not to give points is the amount of damage some random player is doing (not the player who is playing).

Because:
you may receive 4 points if you win and do more damage then your HP

you may receive 2 points if you win 

you may receive 2 poitns if you dont do enough damage

you may receive 4 points if you dont do enough damage and win

 

So, winning or not works as expected. But the damage trigger is broken. Perhaps it uses random player from the round instead of a particular player.

You can tell us why the points rewarded for epic medals were halved (from 10 to 5) ???

This change is not specified in the patch notes

 

And you wonder why people are fed up with this game and lost all trust in WG. You make changes to the game without saying anything about it, and i am sure that is not the first time or last time when this happens.

It is not the first time. It looks like that wiht every (mini)patch the scores get broken and they do not add up. I am already done with ym two referrals but experienced it multiple times after a patch and we had quite a few of those lately.
