Seems a little excessive, I propose 20 mins. This would allow for those who can only play for a hour to get a better chance of two lots of 5 races. Quite like this game mode, Leopard and T-50 are a laugh :)

it will not be reduced.

 

The purpose of that downtime is to make sure it takes you a long time to grind the commanders, as opposed to just powergrinding them straight up and not paying for them.

I mean, they are collectively worth 4800 gold, you want them to make it easier to not pay for it ?

WG learnt the lesson from Steel hunter where people blitzed it in hours. It's meant to be a two week event so we've been time gated this time

You are being a bit selfish here, aren't you?

I'm amazed you think WG learned anything from that to implement it on something a week later.  Then again, they have an amaing 50 gold pr 100 points to keep you playing this time for that to matter.

So we can have people finishing it in three days or quicker and whine on the forum they have nothing more to play for and want more rewards. No thanks. The cooldown is fine. If you want to play more, just make a referral and play that one during the countdown. Gets your main acount even more points also.

A solution for that would have been to set the race points requirements higher, or allow the event to run longer, without an annoying cooldown.

exactly. The sooner I finish the event the sooner I can start rewarding myself with 50G each day. 100 points is (hopefully 3 or 4 races) and 50G is more valuable to me that new crews or books etc.

 

Now if only I can get out of the office on Tues/Thurs and work from home all week :trollface:

Which leads to the question ... is recruitement of these commanders time based?
