I think if you play tier 7 or above, win half your battles, and actually contribute, averaging 490 base xp to get the key should be reasonably achievable.

 

I'm wondering if they pitched the required xp level to avoid people afking their way through the event ...

That sounds reasonable except that average players are not 50% players. And you get very little for losses, and of the wins average players get they may not have done much, got killed early, or whatever, so may not get much for the wins either. And average players playing t7 and above will not fare as well as if they played t5 or t6, so many will opt to play t5 and t6 where they'll have more chance to win, but then they'll get even less experience. I'm just an average player, and I have 46 battles left, and I need 3112 cases to get the key. So average of 67 cases (670 exp) per battle, and I won't get that, so won't get the key.

I got the key, not bothering with the Blaze. Didnt win the Smasher though, got 100 gold, some boosters and 30 parts of a Tankenstein certificate - wonderful.

 

Do not like this event anyway. Tier 7 is now full of Smashers, Tankensteins and Blazes every damn game.

How many certificates for a tank?
And are the certificates sellable?

You need 100 to get the tank - so basically another persuasive measure they have put in to try and tempt you to buy more crates.

 

"Oh, I have 30 certs and need another 70" "Maybe ill just buy a couple of crates, I might get the Smasher but if not, I might get the certs for the Tankenstein instead".

 

Not looked if they are sellable - will check later. Doubt it though.

In previous events, 'certificates for parts of a tank' cannot be sold, they just hang around in your storage. 

 

I have had 2 pop up offers to buys tanks for which i held these certificates, and the price was less if I had more certificates.  So if you get most of a tank, it seems that, at some random time in the future, WG will let you buy the tank for a price reduced by the certificates that you hold.

They are only selling the keys in lots of five. They could have been kind to us and sold individual keys as well.  :(  But then, WG are not noted for their kindness and generosity.

Good to know. However, even if i had 99 out of 100 for the Tankenstein I would not buy that monstrosity lol.

I'd pay gold to avoid being given a Tankenstein. Got it for free in a Christmas event, played 7 games in it and sold it for credits. Just a horrible game experience, total dog of a tank.

Frankly I won't even be trying for the Blaze. I've seen plenty of them in games over the years and it's not a tank I'm ever concerned about seeing on red - so not a tank I'd put in any effort to get, much less pay for.

A lot of Blazes running around too. Some ppl must have played a lot to get it already.

So... How's the event going for you guys? At this point i imagine everyone already got their prizes.

I need 1500 more points for Blaze so i opted for the key instead. Anyone here actually got the tank for free?

I just got to the 4k free exp box. I didn't bother with it after that. too much work to get the key or Blaze. and I wonder what happens for anyone who gets the blaze in the event but already has it? there's been no mention of any compensation that I've seen.

I bought it for 1200 gold but i don't think anybody would have realistically gotten it for free. One loss and it just tanks your average base xp so much. Mabye if i platooned?

But anyway the blaze itself is objectively quite bad but somehow comes together into a coherent tank despite almost every stat contradicting itself. Horrible accuracy and bloom on the move but godly aim time. horrible traverse but good in a straight line. Alright gun depression but horrible eleveation. But it all work because you can quickly get into weird positions and aim so much mroe quickly than any other 400 alpha gun and  really punish people.

I couldn't even get it in the EU server and I had sub 5k mm there. This was just another money making scheme from wg.

To be honest, you would have to play high tiers such as 9 or 10 for the 100 battles and have a unicum wr to stand a chance of getting it for free. And like MM likes to play games when you are trying to cash in a 5x certificate, it would probably play games with you during these 100 games too.

 

That said, if you could have got it down to anywhere below 5k gold, it still would have been a good deal for the tank. 1,200 gold is a no brainer.

You should never have to use gold to get credits. If creds are a problem (which they shouldn't be), you should really get a premium tank of some kind.
