Again low maintenance op's are the point. The number of console employees has to have dropped dramatically. Forums locked. Little to no information about 2020. Everywhere you turn on console it's more bureaucratic, less development 

 

Yeah i have to agree and it's worrying. Updates lol poor last year. + this years 3 months event is starting to look like it's all been done in a hurry. Makes you wonder what they've been doing over at WG console HQ doesn't it.

They've really screwed the casual / average / time-limited players with all of the point availability reductions.

 

To be transparent, I can understand the reward reductions. But this is an outright slap in the face of the casual and time-limited players. Obvious money grab is obvious.

 

A very anti-player move on WG's part.

 

Wish I'd have not wasted money on this crap buying premium time at BF. What a waste.

 

Great time for a break.

 

But now they have released info that there will be 2 of the 50 point ops a week in month 2 and 3 in month 3, so big point availablilty after the first month

They must be working on the next WG game, either that or there are only a few staff still on the payroll.

Yeah that's the worrying part "staff" . Next three month and if the next update is terrible. I'm guessing we'll have the answer. I actually thought because of the cut-backs with staff and that. We had the ops we got last year . Low maintenance basically, That's why I was dreading them going with the same concept this year

Interesting.  If that's legit, that's helpful - doesn't fully make up the point differential, but is good, directionally.

 

Important question - will the Weekly Ops expire after the week they post, or will they stay in your OPs list until completed or the month / quarter expires?

Basically means put more effort in. OK if you play all day. But if you work. They ain't stupid. If players are gullible. Always said wg seems to see the players base as gullible and children with money.

This forum proves that complaing gets you no where. Yes it is broken. All of this changes nothing. Just quit the game or play the game. Six years... If haven't figured out no changes are coming ..

The only choice we have left as players is to break it more. Caen 1944... When this map comes up we all agree to drive to our side of the ocean and leave the map.

They've nerfed all the rewards and ops BIG TIME. I know they're trying to save gold and make real money but it's actually a disincentive for me.

How far have folks got?  Presumably the 'rewards' will improve as the op progresses?  Only the first week so far after all!

There's a list of rewards and they are basically trash all the way through. There are a couple of chests near the end which are nice, I guess. I'm up to rank 11 and I'm losing the will to play with the rewards being so bad and super annoying missions like kill a TD in 5 separate games.

I agree, this Kill TD's Op is stupid as it can be. Someone really tried hard in making it annoying af. Meanwhile our MM is still broken af and since teams are not weighted by class (except arty and light) we get teams with 10 td's on green team and none on red team....and you have to kill TD for Op.

After 15, it changes to making a point II.

 

Yeah. 50% more payout for twice the work. And there are only 10 of those.

WG doesn't get it. Whether this op is shorter, longer or exactly the same doesn't matter. What matters is that it feels like more of a grind. That's not good.

After the amount they gave out last year, it's best to cut back a bit and other events will come out with some rewards.

 

The good rewards was about the only reason why most people kept playing.

 

I have 200k xp to do before my contract is finished on a merc tank and I wont be playing tanks for a long time after it's done. 

 

There is no reason to put up with bad teams, bad rng, bad mm for absolutely terrible rewards.

Posted by Rai in the Op Discussion:-

 

 

Hello Commanders!

We want to offer you information to explain how the Weekly Ops work!

At the beginning of Winter Games 2020 (Month 1) players will now have 1 random, rotating weekly op to be completed within the 7 day timer within that week. A 'week' in World of Tanks: Mercenaries is the time between our regular Tuesday maintenance.

If the player completes the op in the 1st week, they will receive a new random weekly op (depending on the 'random roll' it could be the same one they had previously) in the following week.

If players do not complete the op, they will have the same op again in the next week.

 

Month 1 - January 7th until February 4th ending at the time of our regularly World of Tanks Mercenaries scheduled server maintenance

MONTH
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3
Week 4
1 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op

 

Month 2 - February 4th until March 3rd ending at the time of our regularly World of Tanks Mercenaries scheduled server maintenance

In month 2, players will start the month with 2 Ops.  And just as before, if players complete the 2 Ops within the 7 day timer, they will get 2 random rotating Ops each week until the end of the month.

MONTH
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3
Week 4
1 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op
2 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops

 

Month 3 - March 3rd until March 31st ending at the time of our regularly World of Tanks Mercenaries scheduled server maintenance

In month 3, players will start the month with 3 Ops.  And just as before, if players complete the 3 Ops within the 7 day timer, they will get 3 random rotating Ops each week until the end of the month.

MONTH
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3
Week 4
1 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op
2 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops
3 3 random rotating Ops 3 random rotating Ops 3 random rotating Ops 3 random rotating Ops

 

Here's an example of what could potentially happen in the 2nd or 3rd month of the weekly Ops.

Let's say that if in week 1 of month 3 a player completes 2 of the weekly ops out of 3, then in week 2 the player will get 2 re-rolled weekly ops and retain the 1 Op they did not complete until it is completed

MONTH
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3
Week 4
1 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op 1 random rotating Op
2 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops 2 random rotating Ops
3

3 random rotating Ops

1 Op - Completed

1 Op -Completed

1 Op - Incomplete

3 random rotating Ops

1 Op - random rotating Op

1 Op - random rotating Op

1 Op - Same Incomplete Op from Month 3, Week 1

It should be easy to finish this Op in about 6 weeks by just doing the daily OP's

If you put in these games you will finish of the 10 point bonuses and weekly OP's with out any extra effort.

They really want people to drop in and put in 10 - 15 games daily.

 

The only bummer is they are not giving away as much Gold as they did last year.

I also miss the permanent Camo they gave away last year.

Maybe they will put it in some OP's in the future.

Overall I like 2020's Op's better than the 2019 version.
