 Getting ten 1350 games is impossible unless you and your clanmates press battle at the same time and rig games .

 

Hmmm. Actually I think it is somewhat more achievable than I made it out to be, but it's still pretty difficult.

I bought the Type 59 in the New Year's event.

 

me too. :)  unfortunately it's on this account not the new one  :(

 

At first I was disappointed that it would be available for free in this event... but having seen the details, I think that I made the right choice! 1350 XP per battle is extremely unrealistic for the average player (or even the above average player). I make around 1000 XP on a good tier 7-8 win - 1350 would have to be a really good battle.

 

IMO this event is near impossible without paying gold, except for the very best players.

 

Although I've only been playing less than six months, so not much experience with events, actually only one, lol; still I'm quite sure WG make these events impossible to complete without spending gold. and that is their aim IMO- to make us spend gold.

 

Here's why:

 

Suppose that you are a VERY good player - 70% win rate. You will probably average about 1200 XP per battle in your BEST tank. That is assuming that you maintain your 70% WR throughout the whole 30 battles (while all the potatoes are spamming high tiers trying to get coins). Even tis will only get you 12,000 coins - not enough to get the Type 59 for free. See how hard it is now? :(

 

yep!

 

Me, I'll be going for the Ding camo for my Type 59. The prizes on the way to the camo are way better anyway lol.

 

I agree

maybe for some really good players it might be achieveable, but not for the average player without spending gold. and I would think that's 90% of players

the scroll is in your storage, but I couldn't figure out what the heck to do with it to start the "warriors path", so I just paid the 1 gold. they sure like to make these things confusing  :confused: now I have two scrolls. go figure!

Played four games. the standard of play is much higher than usual for the tier. think I'll give it a miss now until tomorrow when the better players are (hopefully) at work

What’s that, a Wargaming event that’s effed-up before it’s even started? That’s surely never happened before...

Paid 1 gold.

Played 5 battles in M4 all in tier VI and all with useless teams so I quit.
I will be lucky to get half what I need if this is the crap I’m going to have to deal with.

If you wanna get high XP games then take tanks that can do two task, for example, I use WT ausf pz IV, I can deal a lot of damage to higher tier + i can spot/pick a boom a bit. 
Using M4 in itself will not get you anyway near 1k XP.

People use T95, KV2, Drac, IS4 Bc 25 and few others

This is what I managed to get, 12196, if you guys are wondering, needed just under 2000 gold to complete the stages with 2 camos and type 59.

see, you're a really good player but you still needed to spend gold to complete the event. WG know that by far most players will need to spend gold, which is what they want of course.

Yes, that's true.  It might make the tank cheaper to buy than otherwise, or you can choose not to spend any gold and forego the tank.  It's been a while since Wargaming did an event where you (or I, or any normal player) could earn a high tier tank without spending some gold.  I guess they balanced that by having some events where you could easily get a lower tier premium.

i look at it as an opportunity to get 1 free garage slot and 2-3 camos without spending gold. Each camo is worth around 300,000 credits (assuming this is the type of camo where after you get it, resupply cost becomes 0?), so thats 900,000 credits + garage slot for playing 'normally'. I got no problems with that...

 

Tank is not attractive enough to me to spend gold.

yes, I guess the event makes the tank cheaper to buy than it normally would be with gold alone, so that's a good thing

like that tier one tank they gave us in the NYE. it was so funny to see 7 on each team running around shooting at each other  :teethhappy:
