Hello tankers! 

 

Are you taking advantage of the Take Point Op event running until September 27th? 

https://console.worl...news/point-tank

 

All you have to do is grind points to get rewards! 

 

Do please let us know what you think of the operation and share with us the current rewards you are receiving!  Your feedback helps us evaluate the Op.  Hopefully bring it back soon!

 

Who doesn't like rewards? I know I do!

I like the fact it is tied to commonly available ops and it plays in the background while working programs like Merc contracts.

The improvement opportunity is in the lack of ability to see the points available on a daily basis so projections can be made on achieving the ultimate goal.  I had difficulty calculating the daily requirements to earn the points and therefore if I would be able to hit the 900 level.

 

So more clarity on the points earn roadmap would be great.

Well, I do not like this op.

For me it is just too time consuming this time.

 

If I am not mistaken the other earn ops were easier (=less time consuming).

900 points is just too steep for me, so I have alredy given up :(.

 

 

 

(The concept of this earn op is cool though, I mean that we have to earn points via the daily ops. - Maybe we could be eligible for the final reward after 700 points? That would be more of a motivation for me.)

Who does not like rewards ... I would love to get the Kirovets-1 but I find it almost impossible to get 900 points considering few important factors like work, family ...

I think 10 points for 50k experience is not enough for a casual gamer to get to the 900 points needed.

I think 900 pts with the way we are accumulating pts is to steep.

I'll echo the sentiment posted above and add another point.

1. Make the road map more clear.
2. Either fewer points total needed, or more points per operation.

3. Don't restrict some of the key operations to tiers 5+.  This has destroyed tier 3-4 matchmaking.

I also gave up after the first day when I realized that it would take a significant daily commitment rather than the usual ability to flex your points/time to fit your schedule.

the points are so few per day that it's making it seem a choir to do,there is not a lot of leeway for the points,so if you miss some,it's going to be hard work, unless they improve the points available on the next batch,I don't think there will be many tanks earned,so then what's the point of the op if it's to far out of reach unless your a diehard player,all wg are doing is peeing people off with these crap ops.

Agreed fully here. You have to play pretty much daily to get the tank and if players miss a day or two, Odds are they won't get the tank. The Normal Ops themselves isn't bad but lack of points like you said and heavy skewed to 50,000 XP Op and Weekly Ops. Seen a couple who has missed a few already (particularly the X5) and fear that after 3-4 days that they won't get the tank.

 

Dreams was most grindy but if a player had commitments, they could settle for a lower prize. Here you may get minor resources but left disappointed.

I am only on stage 3 an like the others said 900pts I think is going to be too steep. I did a calculation I believe when we had only 23 days to go for the op an a person needs to get around 39pts a day to get the 900 pts by the end of the op. Now I can only speak for myself but I only pay 3 to 4hrs max a day if I'm lucky an complete all but one op. However with said I'm not sure I'll be able to complete the ops due to you basically have to get the 50k op for the 10pts a day to make it all work.

I think also 700 points to earn the tank is enough, or should increase points per operation.
I know all of that have been  said, but repeating is good, maybe WG hears to us this time.

Yeah I agree with this. I would either reduce to number of points for the tank or increase the number or points rewarded for completing the daily ops. I like this op's concept over the others we usually see, it just needs the above change and would be great. I don't think I will be able to get the 900 points I just don't have the time required.

Op's concepts seems actually good, But! If players join  a few days later to this event, they won't get the top reward or what if “life“ keeps you away from tanking 1 - 3 days?  This is killing motivation pretty much. Make it less “ must play“ and more “just play“. This tolerance could bring players together and not dividing the playerbase in seals and tryhards. Just my 2cents.

Is any chance to get a few extra points from "Covert Ops" ?

I was thinking that having the Earn 100k XP to get 50 points would make this "doable". I was disappointed to learn that it's a once per week op. I was also thinking that the bonus that you got for completing every op on a daily basis would also make it more bearable - but I was really disappointed when I got 3 pts.

 

Assuming that the 100k XP op is available twice more, then I've got to average roughly 28 points per day in order to get to 900 points. That is looking again exactly like a full time job. From the amount of work involved, I'm thinking that this is worse than the pretty much every one of the other earn ops, except maybe the King Tiger.

 

Of course, I don't know if you guys are going to scale the point awarded per ops upwards as time goes on --- like pretty much every other game that does this sort of thing --- or simply increase the number of times that you can repeat the 50 point op. I don't mind binge playing one day per week, but it's the start of football season, so there's other things to do.

 

My $0.02 is that if you keep targeting the "good" rewards to just 10% (or whatever) of your player-base, then the number of players willing to play will keep continuing to go down. The way that this op was setup --- all of the stages being non repeatable --- made it such that you could make it easier for everyone to earn the reward without simultaneously destroying your silver economy.

 

One more parting comment - I haven't see what the next set of ops are, but I'm praying that you don't put the medal based ones in there as requiring players to complete for things like Top Gun and Scout will bring out the worst in the player base.

Too many points required for the time given and the points obtained in daily Ops.  Another swing and a miss...

I think this time you are about to see close to a 100% consensus about how steep the requirement for the top prize is. Dream Op for KT was very hard, because it was one week shorter than earlier Ops, but this one is border impossible if you're not playing every day during the Op period. There should be more 100k xp days and some more x3 xp or x5 xp events during this Op in order to accumulate enough pts for the prize. At this stage I can't say if I'm gonna make it to 900 pts

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

All you have to do is grind

 

This is the mistake here - players dont like to "grind", they like to PLAY and be rewarded for that play, whether in fun or ingame tangibles

 

OPs and Events that require "grinding" are BAD - you should reward players for having fun and doing the things they already do, rather than trying to force them into some sort of "9-5 workday tank grinding" mode like it seems currently

Yes I agree. Playing WoT feels almost like work cause you don't want to miss the opportunity to get something for “free“. Listen WG, people complaining but they also stell you whats going on at the battlefield. Feeling exhausted because playing is a no go.

It seems like a punishment for us players.
More and more limitations and laces, and fewer opportunities to play while having fun. With the old system, the more I played, the closer I got to the prize. With this system you have to keep up, you can not relax, you can not skip a day. Is absurd.

This. They should give you 50 points for every 50k xp you earn.
