Does anyone think the long haul reward can be improved further? I was thinking along the lines of the point system they've been using for recent Ops.

 

Say you come first that's 3 points, 2nd to 5th is 2 points (I think that's what you're rewarded in the Ops I could be wrong) and just a point for being 6th or 7th. 

 

It makes it a lot more achievable to get both long hauls done in a week.

While that would certainly make it easier, I'm pretty sure WG isn't actively looking for ways to get people to play LESS.

I do play LESS, and I always get the Ops done for the Freemiums. But never the 2 long hauls per week. I'll get the one but not the two.

I did both in s week before Forza 5 release. Now I can't do even 1. Long haul is just 150 gold. Let it go.

People have fretted about this Op a bit too much. It's a small reward for playing a lot. The way it is set up right now is probably the best (in terms of fairness) it has ever been.

There is logic to this. Although it might be a classified or top secret card so not just 150 gold.

 

However, taking it at 150 gold, as the minimum, and thinking ahead to November 2022, if you were to get one done per week, then 52 x 150 = 7800 gold. Combine that amount with the 4 key cards you get from the approximately 7 seasons at (14 x 150 = 2100 , 7 x 250 (guessing on the black cards) 1750 ,7 x 425 = 2975 = 14,625 gold. More than enough to buy a years worth of premium at 50% off.

 

Just depends on a persons motivation for the game (if they want to grind or not ... I don't) and if they are patient enough to wait a year. Most aren't.

He's right though. It's only 150 Gold/$1.50. It's like you get 2 cents per qualifying game.

The best format was when it wasn't limited to 7 days. If they allowed up to 8 completions per month a lot more players would complete some, and the op would regain some relevance. As it stands, many of us don't even try for it. If I have 55 completions when I start playing on Monday, I just play as normal then go to bed. I don't stay up late trying to reach 75.

A turkey gravy coma is not conducive to gameplay.  No Long Haul for me this week.

 

Ah.  But they won't want to make it easier since these little gold gifts add up and they want us to pay money for that.  Right now we're at a sweet spot where they give just enough gold to cover small costs like garage slots, perma-camo, crew transfers, and minor premium consumable mistakes.  If you want more, you have to play more, and if you play more, your mind is on the game and more likely to want to buy something.

Long haul or ops for free premiums are designed to keep you playing,  to be easy enough to achieve  but hard enough to keep you locked in for a period.. to keep the servers populated..

 

You should still be thankful long haul changed from the winning game qualifier !

It requires too many games in one week, whichever way. I usually score well enough to qualify, but almost never accumulate 75 in a week. If it was extended over a month I would probably collect 3 cards, and would likely then feel motivated to play more.

If they make it easier then I want the total finishes increased. 4 a week will work. As for the 150 gold, I have hit six tanks that I already own in the past 2 seasons.

It is a reward. You get it by simply playing the game. If you can't play 75+ matches per week, don't worry about Long Haul. There are plenty of other Ops that you won't complete either.

I think the way it is now is better then before based on Wins.  You don't get those players that rideNdie just to get a game in fast for a possible Win +1.

At the moment it takes some dedication to get 20-25 top 7 games in on average per day. But I don't think they would want to make it easier to give more keys away per week ;)   But overall it's a reward for playing more often to keep the servers filled, I mean they could change it to 50x2 but don't think they'd do that.

 

But thinking to improve or change it, a point system could work well too!   It just depends on what WG would set the point total at to get 1 key.  

So it could be better or worse for everyone.

I like the way LH works now.

Players actually have to contribute to be able to achieve it.

I rarely get the long haul but I'm always surprised when I do. I don't even look at it, it's not worth the effort compared to other freebies.
