Greetings,

 

Reward for Merit is a FAKE reward system implemented by WG in the hopes of controlling the players behaviour during games

Caesar did the same with his plebs by giving them bread and games - thus making them blind to the real issues - WG is trying to do the same, blind u with gifts and cookies.

 

According to WG, this is how the Reward for Merit system works:

 

How to earn a Reward for Merit

Your chance of getting a Reward for Merit is defined by your personal effectiveness in battle, no matter whether it was a winning or losing fight. The more you battle, the chance of getting the Reward increases.

 

However, if you break the game rules (for example, desert from a battle or kill your teammates) the probability of receiving a Reward for Merit will not increase.

 

This is how it really works - U DONT NEED TO DO ANYTHING AT ALL - BREAKING THE GAME RULES HAS NO IMPACT ON THE REWARD

 

1. I start random battle

2. I camp during entire game

3. Im the only one left of my team

4. I suicide by pressing ESC - GO BACK GARAGE

5. I am rewarded with a REWARD FOR MERIT

6. Rince and repeat for ALL 5 STAGES OF THE REWARD FOR MERIT

 

By doing absolutely nothing, and suiciding at the end of the game, WG keeps awarding me with consumables, blueprints and whatever.

 

Great system WG - keep it up, so will I

 

PS.: Go ahead and delete this topic aswell WG - since u delete any and all negative feedback

A complaint about a system that can be abused by a person abusing it.  Set a thief to catch a thief I guess.

The statement that the probability for a reward for merit does not increase when you break the rules, does not mean that the probability for a reward for merit decreases when you break the rules. These are different statements so the entire post is complaining that your own assumptions are wrong.

 

Now personally, I don't consider any situation where unknown but otherwise non-binary chances may be affected by my personal performance in any way related to "being rewarded for merit" because I don't associate earning a reward with gambling for a reward. That said, it's just some free stuff that you get handed to you for playing. It is not a fake reward system, because it actually gives you rewards. It has nothing to do with controlling behaviour, because it has no method to exercise control, not only can people completely ignore the rewards, if their behaviour doesn't actually affect the rewards as you display, it's incapable of controlling anything.

 

The comparison with Roman society is equally silly. This is not a society or nation. There are no real issues here. There's an entertainment product and people's preferences about it. The goal of an entertainment product is to be entertaining to its customers. It has no value beyond that, being here is entirely optional and has no actual bearing on your life or rights as a human being. There aren't bread and games introduced into this environment, it IS "bread and games" (or just a game, if you want to get down to it, bread has more intrinsic value since at least that's food). The product exists to make people entertained, if having small gifts rained down on them makes them entertained and willing to look other faults, the overall experience of the product has apparently improved and it is the overall experience, not the judgement of some of its individual parts, that matters in determining whether an experience is overall entertaining.

 

Also, stop whining about getting free stuff, it's silly and makes you come off as entitled.

Most of the time, I get rewards when I lose a match. It's very rare that I get a reward for winning. So to me, it is a consolation prize, a "You played like [edited] and lost, but lookie here!" kind of thing. I find it insulting and mocking. But that may be just me.

So sorry you don't understand basic English.

 

That sentence says there is always a chance to get a reward even if you do nothing.  The more you do the better your chance.  Nowhere do they define how much that chance increases, it could be a scale from 10% for doing nothing to 11% for killing the entire enemy team yourself.

With your WR I suspect you're barely doing anything even when you are trying to so I doubt it makes the slightest difference.

You get something for nothing and you complain? :facepalm:

 

Would you feel so much better if they just called it "Random stuff for participation" and gave you EXACTLY the same stuff?

You are right, I can't see anyone playing this terrible game more than 36142 times.

I cant see any perfomance, or championships a real game should have.

I can only see sales, pay to win, rigged tanks and 20.000+ same posters tinsulting anyone and praising WG. That if they don`t pitty WG`s staff for beying poor.

its just always the same people saying rigging/p2w/sales/people praising wg, sure you are allowed to have an opinion but it is just ironic

 

yes wg has released some questionable prems but wg is a company that needs to earn real money aswell, p2w wise yes there are some overperforming prems but there are alot of tech tree tanks overperforming aswell, is that p2w then aswell? rigging; sure handfull people did rig, and bunch of them got sanctions aswell, and for t22 med it got nerfed to death
