I have a question...

If I have calculated things correctly, then you can get only 1 out of 3 final rewards by doing the missions, right?

 

You need 6 parts for each of the 3 cars that cost 50 points a piece = 900 points

Then you unlock the final rewards that cost 200 points a piece = 600 points
 

That's 1500 points needed to get everything, right?

But you can get only 100 points a day (20+40+40 points) and with the event running from the 1st - 12th July the maximum is 1200 points (plus 40 for your first shared design).

So there's 60 points missing for a second final reward and 260 points for the last final reward. Or am I missing something? Will there be more juicy missions over the weekend?

Just do, what most are doing! 

  Just play what you want and when you want! 

Then on 12th use what points you have earned and unlock some free pixels etc..

  Don't sweat it! If you really need to give in to the OCD to complete the collection and get everything? Then reach for your wallet..

:coin:

This is better than releasing more power creeping Premium Tanks so yeah I rather WG do this sort of 'Event' promotion: Skins, Embels, Boosters etc.. to make money.

The only thing I have to say om highway stuff; way to complicated and again missing out on much needed quality control before release. 

Not for me this one.

 Well you have to start somewhere and for the last year (a bit) WG have largely curtailed that practice and I personally rather WG continue to do so..

Try to make money with events like The Road to Rock with skins, camo etc.. which don't really effect the Meta or power creep the game!

   Plus it something for the graphic artists to do as the pool of new tanks tech tree and premium is sort of beginning to run dry (there's over 500 tanks in the game!)

Come on most have been complaining about the power creep with premiums ie Pay to Win for the last few years..

  So I welcome more events like this and I'm not going complain that the only way to complete them (get all the skins, camos, bonus etc) really just eye candy is by flopping out your wallet! 

 Or you choose to get some of them for nothing apart from just playing, and it's little bit of fun..

  Importantly: You can choose! Or even not choose simply ignore the event with the goodies! Or you want everything?

Then pay for it :B

Well, I for one have enjoyed the event. Not particularly fussed about the cars, but getting the rewards as I bought each of the parts was nice. (Being materialistic, I bought all three of the engines first and unlocked a total of 900,000 credits, very useful.)

My one gripe, and this is me being greedy, is that you can only buy each of the grand prizes once. I had been plotting and planning for the last couple of days to buy extra tokens on the last day (today) and buy a whole load of the 10x 50% silver boosters.

I decided to use my saved up tokens before buying more. It was at this point I discovered that you can only buy each of the Grand Prizes once. No stocking up on boosters for me!  (None of my cash for Wargaming either though.)

All in all, a profitable and fun competition. I would have liked to have been able to be greedy, but hey-ho!  I got a lot of free stuff simply by playing the game as usual and just paying attention to progress towards each of the targets each day.

Thanks Wargaming, much appreciated!
