Choose your side, complete missions to earn points and rewards, and dive into the action between May 3 and May 10. Who will come out on top?

Well that's a whole load of text for not a whole load of content.

 

The 3 times a day restriction on those missions is just unnecessary. Let people grind it out in one day and get on with it.

If i read this correctly then?

after the initial 'headline event'   T-34 vs. M4A1 Sherman

 

Then, in the end  >>   its all about 'Hero Tanks'   aka the Premium Shop aka Premium Tank sales

so its just another Premium Shop PR idea/event this to sell/ push Premium Shop sales 

 

whatever ;)

Technical question: will both the Russian version of the Rudy AND the Polish version of the Rudy work for the missions, or just one of those two? :popcorn:

Don't you get it? Events like this one and the Gagarin event last month are the new "tank rewards". Apparently WG decided that ensuring player engagement by giving out a mid tier premium every month is bad for their earnings and so now we get stuff like this, easier but far less rewarding.

I am not sure whether I have understood that correctly, but it seems to me it is a lot of administration and rules for something like 5 cases of cola and some pictures. Are you mad ?

Another marketing event disguised as competition. Esp. when the tanks listed in the title aren't available for two out of three missions.

This is not a competition... This is just a welcome event/gift for the new players from steam.

 

Players must choose a bundle of tanks to complete the missions. Nothing more.

Only good thing about this is that lvl 2 rewards are better than lvl 3 lol. Jokes aside this is more for new players which is fine, but yeah thats a wall of text for not much of content..

So...

"Welcome to Tank Wars—a new type of event that pits two mighty Second World War tanks against one another." - False

"Stage Rewards offer increasingly rare and valuable items" - False

 

Okay with that out of the way what is left: A few missions for random battles some of which need to be completed in tanks from a at least reasonably large group of tech tree vehicles and another group of premiums. All of this for some largely mediocre rewards (the garage slot is the most valuable thing in there).

 

tbh WG, It looks like you intended to release something similar to crew is crucial or play your class right but you then went and made it sound bigger than it was in may's sneak peek...

"The brand-new Tank Wars special takes two of the most popular vehicles in-game and of the Second World War era, and asks the age-old question: Which one would win in a fight?" - I know it dosn't say there will be a new game mode but it felt like we were gonna see a gamemode of  T-34 vs. M4A1 Sherman and compared to that this special is a bit lame.

At the same time if you let people "grind it out" people will complain they're made to grind too much in one day :) 

 

At the same time we of course want to encourage people into playing daily :izmena:

They're still being reworked and until announced there's no return. Please bear in mind Tank rewards were around due to nothing like daily missions and so on being available :)

Not quite, if you keep reading and keep look out for things, you'll notice a lot of content on the way (new content) and it's not about the premium tanks, there's going to be more ongoing stories.

Please refer above about Tank Rewards, but you are not wrong about the level of rewards should be inline with the level of involvement from the player :)

There will be more stuff on the way to make sense for this much info :) I know this seems like quite a lot of info, but this will be a long term event and i hope you get to see some of the cool things planned :)

This is meant as engagement, article has been updated as it should have been that missions are for tanks IV-X tanks

Hopefully we can do this on the streams and encourage people to do it, but not force people into it, because not everyone wants to take part in such things :) This way you can take part if you want, and don't if you don't and not forcing people into it. 

 

Can you please list your specific queries and we'll try and get you some answers asap.

The stuff is not free. You have to get these tanks first, put a crew there and buy some expendables. All of this costs even real money. In addition, you will play currently uncompetitive tanks, so your win rate will go down.

And I am not counting the personal effort in coping with rules...

I will choose a team with my clanmates, and we will kinda roleplay it. The idea is fun, the gifts are appreciated.

I understand the premium highlight. No worries about that. Entertainment comes with money.

 

For similar events in the future, may I suggest having more themed missions related to the main tanks? "Set a M4 Sherman on fire with your T-34, gain 500 free XP, repeatable 5 times over the course of the event", something like that?

We will chose a team and decorate our tanks accordingly. ^^
