@raibot01 can you confirm the deadline to earn the fv4202p?

 

I sincerely hope that this is bad information. You are 100% correct that nothing in the official list of stages and prizes indicates that the FV is only available for week 2. I am ahead on the 83 points per week schedule and I am on the Captain II. I would have to earn 45000 more XP before Tuesday? At 65 to an average 500-600 XP per match? Crazy sauce!

Rai, what time is the cut off each day for the leaderboard stuff?

 

Been looking for an answer to this everywhere but to no avail.

@Rai: Can you provide a bit more details about how the leaderboard works please? +Pretty Please :girl:

 

Furthermore: How is the rating calculated (maybe not in detail but would be great to know what influences it like "# of battles", "winratio" of course but maybe even "tank selection", "time in battle" or so?)

 

Would there be an option to see your own rating at least if you didn't make it on the leaderboard?

It's midnight UTC for the leaderboard. I got the answer from max. 

 

Also the rating calculation is annoyingly simple. 

 

Number of wins * win rate = leaderboard rating.

 

If you're not on the leaderboard you'll have to know how many games you've played and won to know your rating.

Need more xp per battle, need more maps, need more ops as tankers (I didn't play as a commander). Does anyone know if we can just compete as a tanker and still get enough points for the final prize?

Thanks very much for the update! Much appreciated. Didn't track my games or wins so no way to find out at all.

 

But more interestingly: You're saying that the first day only had 6h of playtime to get on the board (because it started at 4pm UTC)??? And because the commander mode started at 4am local time I had effectively not really a chance to score 5 games on the first day so Leaderboard is not actually possible for me?

Well that ...:facepalm:

You don't have to play 5 games each day to qualify. You could play 0 day 1 and 10 games on day 2 and still qualify from what I understand. As long as your total number of games in over the min 5 * number of days you should still qualify.

I would really like to have this ↑ confirmed officially as I read what's on the website a bit differently ("To be eligible to participate, you must play at least 5 battles as a Commander in the Commander Mode every day. " )  ;)

I didn't play at all the first day and I'm still on the board, think it's just poorly worded and tempest is right.

Rai, the progress chart certainly DOES NOT say only in this phase. Can you please triple check and confirm that you were either correct, though again this isn't stated in the progress chart, or simply gave incorrect information about this being the ONLY phase that the FV is going to be available?

 

Thanks,

Was about to ask the first point too as I have less games listed than I should have. That's good, should have a few points to be updated then already :)

Right hand column of the chart.  Phases of availability are also color coded.  It’s still pretty poopy to expect players to grind that kind of XP in a week given how little can be earned from an average match.

That is really not good news. I would have to get 35000 XP between now and the Tuesday morning shutdown. 450 XP average for Tanker mode and I have been treated to a low of just 62 XP and highs of just over 1000 XP for Commander mode. I usually get 250 to 750 XP in Commander depending on win or loss. That adds up to a lot more playing time in a busted, boring game mode than I might be willing to put in. 

 

Really cheesy WG. And many thanks for taking a few days to generate muddy and unclear conditions for this experiment too. I love this game, but this is the sort of thing that leads even players like myself to get a little salty.

I still don't see how the color coding indicates the FV is only available for completion during this week. Those OP's allegedly carry over. The color coding supposedly just indicates when OP'S become active. 

 

Also I played the first week under the illusion that the final mystery tank required 500 total points through all six weeks. Nope I now see, assuming that the FV is only available this week I should have pushed for more XP last week. I wasn't focusing on XP because the earnings were a little better last time and points were supposed to be the key for the final prize.

 

Argh!

I've not seen any definitive wording (including the news article) that states or even implies that the tank is ONLY available this week.

 

Commanders will earn the FV4202 (P) after they reach Lieutenant Colonel II in the Progression Ops!

 

...is the clearest statement I've read. The Progression Ops roll over until the end of event 6 so why would the prize not?

This. The wording of the requirements could not be more spurious if they tried. Logically as long as you get to lt colonel II by end of season you should be eligible for the tank
