Love the Op structure, though I have one small query.

 

For those players who may be away or not able to play every week, will there be regular 'bonus' ops to enable people to catch up and make extra points in the next month to make up for the short fall?

 

I know quite a few players who only get to play on weekends and they will have little hope of completing the Ops.

 

Perhaps you could allow xp multipliers to count towards the Experienced Tanker Op?

Three months of work for a tier6 that I know next to nothing about and has no information in tankopedia...can't say I think it's worth it. Maybe if we could get some information on the tank that'd change some things, but right now there's a little too much WG 'mystery surprise'.

 

Also not a fan of the premium account only rewards. Sends the wrong message to me.

I like the ops structure. What is not good is the fact that you can't choose witch ones you can select. For me, it is useless to have XP bonus on premium tanks like it is a wasted op when I have to put silver bonus on a TT tank.

Yup. Really enjoying the Op. Same as the Absolution one. Prizes seem balanced, and the bonuses really help massively. It's got me playing more, and the thought of the reward at the end is a big bonus. 

The tank looks great too, but wouldn't matter as it's free anyway to anyone completing the Ops. 

Much prefer this to the old earn-ops.

As a casual average player at best. I think this Op structure is great. I can play as I want with little to no pressure to try to complete daily ops since they are all active at once. The added bonus for having premium is a nice thank you to the players that purchase premium time and help keep the game going. For the life of me though I can not understand the people on here and other sites complaining about the grind for just another tier 6 tank. In my eyes there is no grind what so ever. Just play as you normally do and bingo free tank. Love it. Keep this up.

There's a repeatable 10 point bonus Op for every 25k XP.

You also seem to be able to earn points relatively easy. Even if you don't complete them all to earn the tank you do get various sales price stages so I think this is an improvement over previous Earn Ops, especially for people who don't play so much.

You will need to complete all three parts of the 'season', so complete January, February, and March to get free tank. If I understand correctly, finishing one or two months will give a significant discount to buying the tank for anyone who falls short (something like complete 1 month get it 33% off, two months 66% off - has not been specified). 

 

Then there is the year-long Op for some big prize at the end, including all twelve months (four seasons).

I thought I was done with major WOT purchases, but for the bit of gold and the silver rewards, I in turn was encouraged to buy the Pudel and the Mutant/Minuteman combo.

see WG...treat players decent and theyll actually spend MORE money!

 

picked up a minuteman myself, was hard to resist that pricetag, and needed to play it myself a bit and make up my own mind about its 'opness' lol

New structure is good. New Prizes along the way have more value for me then any premium tank at end.

The fact I dont have to select ops is awsome.

X2 till end of the month could motivate new players to play alot (not me thou, tired of that never ending earn op and contract grinds).

 

Dont like the end of quarter reward. I think that all tier 6 Shermans including their premium versions are uncompetetive for their tier. Mostly due to poor gun stats.

The 20 x3 bonus should work only when winning battles (well, like any other xp boost ops). 

 

Fury is a beast.  Hoping the "Thunderbolt" can perform just as well.

I think the reward is a little weak for being 3 months of monthly ops to complete. Especially considering when wargaming has done monthly point ops that could earn you a choice of 5-6 different tanks with top being a tier 8. It was done for Germany, Russia and America. I think it was most recently done with Germany with top reward a king tiger.

RaiBOT01 any news on another x50 pts weekly op,  going back to work tomorrow because the wife is doing my nut in.. And my game time will basically be a couple of games throughout the week and mostly playing at weekends. Glad to be going back, but I'll miss the op and playing.. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

Considering the very generous rewards you get for completing the different stages, I don't think there's anything weak about the final reward being a tier 6 premium. Also the King Tiger reward you mentioned was unachievable for anyone with a life outside of this game, whereas the current rewards can be earned more easily.

It's also better for game balance when newer players are able to get a tier 7 tank. They aren't thrown into tier 8-10 matches where they get wrecked as with previous ops with tier 8 Earn Ops tanks but still remain within favourable mm at tiers they're comfortable with.

Now that we have this "Winter games op", does it mean that there is not going to be any "Tankbowl"-event like in previous years in January/February?

I agree that there are some decent rewards such as almost $50 in silver equivalent, a couple of dollars in gold equivalent, repair/Med kits/fire extinguishers, x3, and many more in the totality of the point op. I think everyone can agree with the logic of more gold, more silver and great tank rewards.

 

I appreciate that wargaming is going above status quo for this op and future ops by trying new events with new rewards. Just hope they can go beyond by making these new events great events. How to accomplish is simple = huge gold rewards, huge silver rewards (great rewards so far in this regard), and great tank rewards (tier 8, maybe picking your own tank out, or multiple low tier tank rewards). They can keep the repairs, medics, fire extinguishers, and x3s.

 

Possibility of gold given out to be 12k? They have given out plenty of premium tanks that are valued at 12-15k gold for rewards. Even 5k gold would be a step in the right direction for completing some hard tasks in the ops

 

I fully believe it is a balancing game. Between the stages and final reward, it would be great to see good gold rewards, silver rewards and tank rewards. Maybe more heavily in 2 of those 3.
