How about another special:

 

01. April - 30. April: Hearts of Iron 4

 - 99% reduction on frustration with gold spam, imbalance and MM for every game played

 - x5 to player satisfaction due to the gaming company actually caring about game quality and playerbase

 - Tons of bonuses in the form of hours on hours actually having fun, instead of habitual compulsiveness.

 

:great:

eek is actually a really good presenter, kudos to you. It's not that easy I needed a few goes just for a few lines of a presentation at work lol. Then again, I didn't get any cake to motivate me to higher levels of performance.

@eeke

smile buddy. At least pretend to have fun in office :D;) 

Also I'm a bit surprised. Again missions which could/would be pretty interesting right in the time of the next frontline episode *sigh* - which wasn't even mentioned ;)

Sounds nice, but you have to redo the whole ToTT thing guys.

 

Just 1 month to get the boosters kinda sucks and we need some heads-up for 2 weeks before about the next tank.

Hello all!

 

First before I respond with the wall of eek, 

 

Some people will notice the easter egg code no longer activates. It was intended as a small easter egg/teaser to see how many people would pick up on it and activate it. As it's so popular and used so quickly this is good signs for having similar easter eggs in future if suitable :)

There will be a Frontline, but this has already been announced and most of the information has been shared and announced. I tried to pick up on specials that haven't been announced yet or people will not recognise to keep the video short :)

I don't imagine this being a special that adds very much to engagement or players playing more during the month ;)

Thank-you very much for the kind words, my challenge has been from moving from Teacher presentation methods to camera work. For cake... it was amazing!

It's something I'm working on :D I smile often when required, but smiling for the camera is very different ;) The missions for the Frontlines are similar missions we've had before, I try to explain those that have not been used before or may be not yet announced :)

The TotT as it currently stands will not change, the idea being the boosters aren't the focal point, they're a part of the large picture of things to encourage people to get to tier 10s :)

Interesting .... does the company want to get more ppl involved in playing T10's or does it want to get more ppl to spend time/effort to get to t10's ?

I suspect it's the latter, especially with the massive increase in module XP cost at higher tiers over the past few yrs.

 

More time for boosters would have helped the guys who are not at the top yet, who have no t10's or are trying to get them; atm the ones who benefit the most are the guys who are already well established.

1 month with a 1-2d notice before of what is ToTT is simply too short a notice for most ppl.

I think the company would entice ppl better with more combat boosters tbh, atm the system seems designed to offer a shortage of combat boosters.

 

What will happen is that a lot of ppl will simply stop along the way at T8, putting even more pressure on the MM instead of increasing T10 population.

 

LE: Grammar. :(

I knew it! All these specials are about players playing / paying more, nothing else to say here.

It acts as both, previously the main focus was on boosters and more suitable for people already at the top. That was never the intention of TotT, which was to always get people to higher tiers as that's where most people want to get to and the discounts help massively with this. 

 

I'm not sure where the more notice for TotT would be required as you will be playing those lines after the announcement and don't activate until later, playing before then doesn't necessarily give you an advantage and announcing sooner will not change anything, while there are lots of other announcements and information to share.
