It's experimental, that's the point. All the rest you can do yourself.

One for the no-lifers.

Who probably have an abundance of the top rewards already.

Meh.

Mindless grinding rather than any form of skill, and of course, no live rankings. Gold would be nice, but it aint that much to worth playing hours after hours each day, and any kind of materials or equipment i have plenty.

Pass.

Yes, there's no ultimate equipment in the prize list this time.

Ratings have the same mechanics as the previous ones (for example, July ratings), so you can track your in-game progress as usual.

Nice w. an event like this, but please confirm it's based on average points and not total.

 

Some of us have a life outside the game...

Given the low user base, this actually shouldn't be that grindy - so long as you set your sights on a reasonable attainment level!

(And assuming the user base doesn't shoot up because of the event - which might be a major flawed assumption)

 

Based on the last 7 days, 110 games will get you into the top 400 in terms of games played and some of them have pretty bad win rates (and so poor PP average?)

So, a good/reasonable player (playing the "right" aircraft and focusing on a single period) should be able to get a good score with 100 games or so.

 

Of course, maybe other people consider 100 games in a week to be a grind and I'm just a sad individual! :hiding:

My personal goal will be just to get above 1 000, to obtain that experimental stuff, basic one.

I can upgrade later at leisure.

No grind at all. Anyone who plays more than once per week will get the special equipment.

You're right, mate.

...assuming the user-base doesn't explode and/or other 'strange' things happens (f.ex. 'underperforming' constantly).

 

I've played around 6 battles/day the last 7 days.

...and most during the weekend...

 

My point is that trying to pitch something like this (more or less in the 'competitive' category), should take the fact that some plays more (and others less) into consideration.

 

Now, I'm not demanding a tailor-made event for players w. a more or less normal life (i.e. without unlimited hours to play - and, even with unlimited time, without a desire to do so).

But at least a goddamn consideration, so the player capable of - say - 70 battles during the event vs. another that plays 200 will get evaluated equally.

For example by calculating average PP during the timeframe instead of the total.

It's total ...

on Discord this morning someone asked "Is it total PP?" and blindfold answered "Of course".

Thanks for the clarification.

 

IMHO that is a (huge) flaw.

running out of likes... but i totally agree!

The results of the past events have shown clearly that the prices were won by ... sorry to say it... "nolifers"

It would be nice to have the prices for a broader playerbase, but that is obviously not what they want.


There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. ... Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties (Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

Always the same... Who has more time will have more chances.

It is not a skill based ranking, but just another farm ranking... 

 

Who works entire week 8/10 hours per day, for obvious reasons, will never be in good spot.

Why don't just set a limited amount of best games which counts towards the ranking? Is it so difficult? Atleast everyone can compete more or less on same level. 

Oh well, just 2 cents

 

(i'm against the average over the total amount of games, just cos who plays more games has more disadvantages, it becomes not balanced aswell for playerbase)
