Indeed. If you do make grade 3, there's no reason to stick around. You're better off leaving and starting a new match. This was not thought through at all.

Regrettable.

 

A mission so the players should simply do the tasks of the plane type they are flying and still do not. Look at the three circles that it shows you when you press Tab and fill them in. Well, we continue to see players fighting out of bases, fighters with zero in defense, heavy with zero GAA / bombers destroyed, GAA and bombers with only 2 or 3 targets destroyed and only one base captured. Sad. Very sad.

 

If the players learned that and did it, the battles would be bloodier and longer (and more fun) and everyone could get at least those 3 chevrons needed. But you still see almost everyone with zero chevrons. If one is done almost accidentally!

 

My easiest week. Only 5 battles and among the 400 best.

 

Please, run brain.exe

 

Saluditos.

 

Edit:

I'm going to give you one reason to continue in the battle after getting Grade III: the players do well and the battle is fun.

I want to say one thing. I don't understand the crazy people they write to me in the game. People, what do you want from me? Due to such varaits, I got a blockade from writing in the game here. You don't have time to play, I have. And what do I care if you don't. you write many times that I have no private life. I have my private life. Now I just enjoy my life after switching COVID-19. But what do you know about it. In my life.

 

When I read the words to me in the game, sometimes I just want to grab this bird by the head and tear off its head .....

 

Why do YOU ​​people extract words so easily in the game chat ??????????

 

I already wrote a report on the forum that one of the players wrote to me that he would kill my mother ...

 

F .... k My mother, my fahter ......... and Hollly shiet my brotehr is diee.

 

And what I see in the game is just shits talking about what they have access to the keyboard.

 

I play to take a break from  all, not to think about it, but if I read certain words in the game I would REALLY grab you by the throat or just overload and .............

 

I still have a blockade for the chat in the game, but from Monday I will write to YOU ​​what I think about YOU when you start writing to me in the game ...

 

I am ungry for you words in the game chat. Su... m.. d....

The only frustrating element in this last phase was a huge ammount of roflstomps where no one made more then 1 chevron, if any.

Thank you blindfoId, this was nice event.

 

Yes this was big grind for same of us, but I dont stress myself with top positions.

In start I see last phase as pure grind, but this was most skill base part :)

Not really since it was the same for everyone. What you encountered, so did everyone else and I think some players fail to realize that. There was no preferential MM or outcomes for some and not for others, apart from those that formed flights of different tiers and basically forged their own MM scenarios.

 

Overall it was fine and if I, a semi-interested player could manage to bag 3 chevys most battles then most anyone could too. If you couldn't, you basically suck as a player and its a case of learn to play and get good, rofl stomps and dubious flights not withstanding. Sure, there were a few battles where on a personal level I just didn't play good enough and no complaints there since that was my own fault, and of course, tapping the windows button by accident instead of the left alt key, or simply getting that black screen after clicking battle, moments of latency etc, but those were rare moments overall and accepted as such.

 

Too many times I encountered clueless Muppets basically playing their aircraft class in every way but the correct way, and as such, they unsurprisingly and deservedly failed to get the required 3 chevrons, and often deservedly lost too. I think the fact it was so easy to climb this weeks leaderboard showcases 2 things, 1. The vast majority of the playerbase stopped caring and didn't participate or 2. The vast majority of the playerbase is completely clueless to how to play their aircraft class. One or the other with possibly a side order of both. 

 

Edit- I'm delighted with my equipment. It adds a slightly different set of parameters to aircraft that I was starting to feel a bit bored with.

Hmmm...

 

Where in my sentence "The only frustrating element in this last phase was a huge amount of roflstomps where no one made more then 1 chevron, if any." have you found the elements of

 

- me stating it was only for me?

- me not realizing it was for everyone else too?

- me ranting on preferential MM for some and not for others?

 

Nowhere.

 

If you're compelled to write your deep analysis of this game and treat us with walls of how great you are, don't do it by incorrectly twisting simple sentences of people who maybe know better than you.

 

Thank you, back to "ignore" again - answered only cause i got the message you quoted me.

Confirmed. Especially the Saturday and Sunday.

I started out pretty good, but hardly made progress over the weekend. Nothing but flights, OP bombers etc ... resulting short battles with only 2 chevrons.

As an event it did seem to bring out some pretty unpleasant behaviour from some quarters - carefully-tailored anchored flights, spawn-camping, abandoning the team the moment 3 chevrons were reached - but the upside (as already mentioned) was that the worst practitioners rarely seemed to benefit because the games finished before they achieved their beloved chevrons.  Pleased that WG put in some effort to create an event, though.

Why can't you TungstenHitman be a bit shorter in your posts?
Every time I take the trouble to translate your long texts with the help of my last but one brainwave from a foreign language that I have studied for the last time more than 40 years ago, I usually realize that I could have saved this trouble.

With respect to the four "Winter Ratings" segments, I have mixed feelings.

On the positive side:
  1. It seemed to encourage a noticeably larger player base.
  2. As a corollary, I've seen new players streaming the game, which I have haven't seen for a while and it's pleased me to be able to pass on some of what I know about the game.
  3. The innovation of "experimental equipment" (but see comments below) means that there is still some fresh thinking and development in the game.
  4. The requirements to obtain the improved version of the experimental equipment were slack enough to give many a chance of getting something.

 

On the negative side:

  1. Some of the segments encouraged selfish damage farming amongst experienced players, to the detriment of team play (the last segment, the requirement to achieve grade 3 or higher, was the best one in respect of encouraging good play).
  2. Many games were less than pleasant owing to the larger numbers of human players who were inexperienced and did the wrong things with their planes (but hey, they were at least there and can improve).
  3. The committed players in their OP bomber/heavy fighter flights regularly made tiers 9 and 10 "no go" areas for those who prefer other classes of planes.
  4. The experimental equipment is barely better than the standard equipment.  I don't think enough has been done to differentiate it, though obviously the gap between "special project" equipment and standard equipment didn't leave much space for innovation.
  5. The weaknesses of the match maker with respect to matching bombers with bot bombers (not so much of a problem at low and even mid tiers, but a major problem at tiers 9 and 10) and specialised aircraft being stacked on one team were exposed yet again.

 

On the whole, I was pleased to see more people playing.  Whether or not this will encourage WG HQ to expand the WoWP team and allow some fresh developments and fixes to take place I don't know, but we can always hope.

Very well put, RFC. I share the same feelings and hopes with you on the same matters.

 

When you see at what rate they churn out the premium tanks, new maps, events, super-events and arty-damage updates on WoT, you happen to wonder how much money they would loose to pay a couple of artists to produce an aircraft per trimester on the bloody plane game. Four planes, five, or even six per year -that's the hope, that's the dream, as Skill would say. But we are being fed scraps. Well, not that we are entitled to anything, the game is playable as it is. But, common, if there are 10.000 players attracted to a game where they may seek iconic planes to play, why don't they get baited by some more ?

 

No, and I don't mean Polish bombers of tier III or Japanese attack planes of tier IV :)

I agree.  I think there's room for a bit more imagination and innovation even with a small WoWP team.  History says WG will miss the opportunity to tie in these newer players, but let's hope otherwise.

 

[Edit]: the foregoing was written before the annoucement of two new special pilots today.
