Players like me you will win the best prizes or those that will make 100 daily battles?

 

Almost every event will have two ratings: one for Mastery and one for Perseverance. For example, this event's results where only the best result counted. Basically, you needed to play 20 battles in two days and that's it.

I fully confirm.

 

In these events / marathons it's perseverance, not the brilliant game or two.

 

 

We'll have awarding events not only for perseverance ;)

No it isn't ... the first M stands for 'massive(ly)' and the second for multiplayer, right ?? Wowp is anything but massive multiplayer IMHO.

 

Oh, another thing ; with this event running all Fall, what happens to the IM Beaufighter ??

 

The IM Beaufighter marathon is a separate activity. 

 

The Fall campaign is not the only activity planned for this autumn. Follow the news for more :honoring:

Each of the six events will have two or more top-30 ratings. For example, we have an event for, let's say, German and Soviet bombers. Then we'll have 4 ratings (German Mastery, German Perseverance, Soviet Mastery, Soviet Perseverance) - basically, 120 places for that event. And the first event will have even more, so the Curtiss P-36C Hawk together with crates is really easy to get. 

 

 

I kinda think that people high on german mastery will be also high on german preseverance and vice versa.

Even with some sort of exclusion rules (if you get 1st spot on german mastery you are not counted for german perseverance and soviet ratings) will bring total number of rewarded players to 120 - it is still "be top 120 once out of 6 attempts to win P36C" - which is kinda doable and completely lame reward. Doing it 5 times out which is also fine as a free gift but not worth the effort imho.

 

Really good rewards are top 3 planes, but even getting into top 20 (top 80 if there are 4 classifications) 6 times out of 6 is not enough - and how many players realistically have a shot of consistently getting top 80 weekend after weekend? 200?

For those who are less active than top 200-300 this event may just not exist at all (except having to deal with all those 70%WR guys playing in the flights in middle tier op planes all the time)


@apartclassic
this is a competition for you and maybe a 100-200 other guys on EU server.
Why anyone else should give a **** for this event?
And it would not be a problem that few people will get rewards if not for the fact that it means that during that months there most likely will not be any event/competition designed for majority of the players.

 

And look, before you get into accusations that I am just a nasty freeloader - I don't really care. I just play 100 battles per month to have a look into a hall of fame I already have loads of premium planes, I don't care about any of my stats, I don't need credits. 
So for me to take interest in WoWp it would have an event better than events in WoT or WoWs that are happening in the same time. 
And competition designed for 10-15% of the playerbase is not one of them.
 



 

 


Just pull the plug on this shit. No point bothering with it anymore

I would prefer the game developers to focus on other details of the game:
- the introduction of clan tags on the TAB list during the battle
- creating a clan mode (clan wars)
- as in wows and wot creating an "air base" with reserves / profits for being in a clan (bonuses to exp., $, etc.)

1. You cannot be in the winners list for two or more ratings simultaneously during the particular event. Regarding the example above, you can be only in one of the 4 ratings.

2. Take a look at the previous events alike. Most pilots prefer to think "I cannot do this anyway" and don't even try, so we sometimes don't even have a full list of winners because of the thought "I won't get to the list no matter what I do" though it's always worth trying.

3. As said above:

My thought about this.

I like the idea, but more relaxed. The tier 9 requires being in top 5 once and in top 10 for 5 weeks (at least) and I think is reasonable demand for the highest premium in the game.

But in being in top30 for 5 weeks for a tier 5? This is ridiculous amount of time and effort for a tier 5.

The spread should have been up to 100 best for 1 chevron, top 50 for 2 chevrons, top 20 for 3 and top 5 for 4 chevrons. This way the tier 6 may be reachable from some people.

Although I'd love to get tier 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 (I have none of them), I won't bother cause I simply cannot allocate the time needed every weekend to reach top 20 for 6 weeks just for the tier 6 :(

120 places is enough for 2 for everyone left playing this bug ridden shambles :D

Joking aside, play the game as you normally would and you should pick up some freebies. We all know the 24/7 crowd will pick up the best prizes, so just try your best and aim for something you havent got lower down the list. It's a game, no point worrying over it.

Reminds me of 'Frontline' in WoT.......an event in which I'm trying for the first time to complete as best I can and have more or less guaranteed myself a free T8 tank, it's just a matter of which one due to time effort.

This event in WoWP's could be interesting, just have to work out what's the time commitment to reach target levels. I'll give it a whirl.

In all the previous similar events I've been playing exactly as I always do on weekends, ~a dozen or so games per day, maybe 15, and was always in the middle group. Without any extra effort or time. 5-6 in the morning, before family duties, and the rest scattered thtoughout  the day.

Is that the way it is?....only the top 30 get prizes?:(

If that is the case then it's nothing like Frontline in WoT where everyone who gets the required level of 'Prestige Points'...gets the tank valued for that level.

Nope.

 

Everybody can get a reward. Like in all previous events of this kind. "For the third grade rewards, if you make between 150-300 points, you'll get..." etc.  So everybody who made between 150 and 300 got a, say, Special Project Something upgraded to a certain level.

 

Looks like it will be the same here. "For 13-16 chevrons, you'll get Kostikov 302" so all who make between 13 and 16 will get it. Chevrons are not mutually exclusive, hundreds of players can make, for example, exactly 15 chevrons. All will have a gift for group 13-16.

 

We'll all be fine.

 

 

PS

@blindfold, can you please confirm?

Players in the top 30 will be the same every week with a few exceptions.

Personally, I will not play like crazy to win more than one chevron.

Looks like it ... unless I misinterpret the event description.

Same people that are in Pilot Of The Month every month ...

 

But I'll play anyway and see where I get.

 

Interesting ... on EU you need 21-24 chevrons, on the NA and Asia server only 16-18 and on CIS it's 26-30 ! And of course the number of chevrons you get in ratings also differs.

Correct. All who have at least 13 chevrons will get the Kostikov 302. If my math is correct, for the Kostikov you need to get to the top-20 5 times and 1 time to the top-10, for example. The very first event will have 6 (six!) top-30s, which means at least 60 people can get 1 chevron for the first event and already win the Curtiss P-36C Hawk. And it's only the first event :) A couple of more events, and voila, you get more chevrons and receive a better reward.

Yes, Top 30, for the regular secret trials events you have less valueable rewards but much more players gets a reward.

To reach Top 30 even once sounds for me like crazy.

 

@ Blindfold, you mean in the first stage only 180 (6*30) players get chevrons? And do you really think, there will be much rotation in the top players?

 

I think a spring event where everybody gets a reward who reach a personal milestone would be better. But this extrem-time-consuming-extrem-competitive-event? I already dislike it now.

It's not "only", it's as many as. Once again, take a look at the previous events of this kind (For King and Country, Magnificient Lightning and so on), we don't even had all places taken usually, and there were only two-three tops.
