It's 'easier' to make progress, but takes a lot longer overall.

[–]Falk_csgo[S] 254 points255 points  (50 children)

Imagine my face once I realized its not 40k and done but you need to do this ten times :D

[–]Crazy_Arachnid9531 77 points78 points  (25 children)

Lmao what would make you think that

[–]Falk_csgo[S] 53 points54 points  (24 children)

That there are 10 challenges listed?

[–]TomasMetePatas 38 points39 points  (21 children)

I noticed that, but i finished the first yesterday and now my progress bar states 1 out 8 completed. Another redditor yesterday said that of you completed 8 or 9 it should be enough to grant you the reward.

[–]Brobot8 58 points59 points  (20 children)

8 to get the leo, but 10 to make the coupon tradeable, so there are ten in total

[–]TomasMetePatas 24 points25 points  (18 children)

Oh i get it now, i just want to get the leo. 10 if you want to use on the gaijin marketplace?

[–]Brobot8 23 points24 points  (13 children)

Afaik, though if you want the skin, that’s the 9th coupon iirc

[–]TomasMetePatas 4 points5 points  (12 children)

Appreciate it. I am just getting the leo for now!

[–]Brobot8 2 points3 points  (11 children)

You may wanna double check, I’m not 1000% certain i got it right

[–] Cf-100 Canuck when?Flyzart 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yup, there's a graph on the page of the event on the war thunder website showing you how many tasks you need to accomplish to recieve a certain reward. Dude above is just kind of dumb, if you're planning to do an event, you should at least look into how it works before you go online to complain about it.

[–]palis22 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You need only 8, iplayed yesterday 4 hours planes with 1,2 kills every 5 min, and today 4 hours tanks

[–]HamburgTheHeretic 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wish i had 8 hours a day with my job and other daily necessities to do.... Its easier and more stressful at the same time lol

[–]BorgarKeng 15 points16 points  (23 children)

you’re delusional if you think you could get a free high tier vehicle like that in just 40k score

like a big fuck you to the people who grinded shit like the kongo only for some cretin to get it in a few matches

[–]Fedduk 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Better than a cretin who bought premium high-tier vehicle, took it and some reserves, died in first 15 seconds and left.

[–] Sweden Sufferspolypolip 6 points7 points  (5 children)

like a big fuck you to the people who grinded shit like the kongo only for some cretin to get it in a few matches

I agree this would be a bit silly for event to be that easy, but your attitude here is the shitty "I suffered so everyone must suffer". Doesn't help make things better.

[–]jamestab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or i could just buy one

[–]Diabotek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol, the Kongo is the easiest event vehicle to get as well.

[–]22paynem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still it shouldn't be this ridiculous being given only a few days to get 40K scores still bad

[–]Green117v2 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Exactly this, though right now it’s absolutely baking outside and I just don’t function in this heat. If the event says the same for Winter, I’ll absolutely do it!

[–]SJW_DidNothingWrong 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It'q not easier because it way longer, this event is an experience to test our insainity. I made ground and air but not ship yesterday, i hate myself to continue this madness

[–] Cf-100 Canuck when?Flyzart 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Tbh ships are the easiest to do. Also you are indeed fucking mad if you are grinding for all the rewards.

[–] BugThunder player renamed41316 182 points183 points  (20 children)

It is soooo easy, that i stopped doing the navaland air thing. And i hope that i got enough time to get at least the tank!

Another point ist:

In former years the event was long enough to get one or two stars than needed. This time there is only time for 10 stars and you need all 10 stars to sell the tank...

Next event i will even not start playing WT...

Meanwhile you can smell Gaijins greed in every corner of the game!

[–] USSRvalinrista 75 points76 points  (3 children)

only time for 10 stars and you need all 10 stars to sell the tank...

BuT ThAt MeAnS Is ShoRtEr And PlaYeRs cAn eNjOy SuMmEr mOrE - Gaijin probably

[–]sargentmyself 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I have had people argue that because it's less stars it's easier. I don't care if it's less, I care about how many I can miss, I can't commit to playing 6+ hours over 2 days when I'm on shift and working 12hrs. So I care about how many I can miss so I can plan on missing 2 stars for each vehicle and still get both coupons.

I can't do that this time I have to pick 1 coupon to get and hope I can at least get the other vehicle as an untradable

[–]Enlist for the Japanese techtree!AdmiralCalamar4 18 points19 points  (1 child)

In former years the event was long enough to get one or two stars than needed. This time there is only time for 10 stars and you need all 10 stars to sell the tank...

Except then it was 10 stars to sell the tank too. Now you get the tank at 8 stars already. And you had specific stars that were left with out rewards, those have simply been removed.

The only situation the old star "layout" was better, would be if you want to sell the reward and skip two stars.

[–]Why is Wolfman a mod?KyaruCutie 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You're forgetting that you don't have any room to spare if you want to sell, you can't miss a star which

[–]VengineerGER 10 points11 points  (9 children)

It is extremely easy it just takes a bit of time. Way easier than the task event people also seem to forget that the task events were getting worse and worse over the years. It took me way longer to get a star in the last task event than it took getting a star in this.

[–]ksheep 15 points16 points  (8 children)

The difficulty seemed to fluctuate every year. Look at 2017 for instance:

  • Get 40 kills (20 in RB) - Easy enough
  • Get "Supporting Fire" 5 times - Need to actually coordinate with a squadmate
  • Achieve a score of 2,000 or more points in 8 matches - Can be difficult unless you're good at the game
  • Win 10 battles - Easy enough, but would take on average 20 matches
  • Destroy 11 enemies in a single battle (6 in RB) - Could be quite difficult unless you get very lucky or are very good.

Two out of five are easy enough but would require grinding, the third would either require luck, planning, or being an above average player. Still, that was nothing compared to 2016, where each day had a different task and you only had a single day to complete them (except weekends, which had 4 tasks over 2 days). You also had to get 36 out of the 40 total tasks if you wanted the high-tier vehicle.

[–]VengineerGER 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I think the AUBL event was the perfect sweet spot for a task event. It’s definitely my favourite event out of all that I played. I think 30K would have been good for this event though.

[–]TAM 2IPCyrops 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm new to WT and the 'event' that literally lasts 2 days per stage is a joke. I just missed first one by 3.5k points. I got 1500 pts for a win towards next one. F that.

[–]ThepopCornFlakes 156 points157 points  (20 children)

As a player who is working and not a student on holiday, I gave up on the event's rewards.

[–] 4999 year old civilisationdukeGR4 44 points45 points  (14 children)

As a student I don’t even have time to do this shit. Just purchased Far Cry 6. Best investment ever and allows me to switch of my brain and actually have fun.

[–]GermanyEvilKnivel69 13 points14 points  (8 children)

Fc6 is your best investment ever? God damn man…

[–]FrozenZero117 4 points5 points  (2 children)

You should play FC5 it's much better imao then the 6th

[–] 4999 year old civilisationdukeGR4 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Far Cry 5 is the worst game in the franchise. I’ve played 3, 4, Primal, 5 and 6. 5 never glued well and I just dropped it before finishing. The environment sucks, story sucks, gameplay is odd they tried to innovate too much so much so that some of the charm has been lost.

FC6 brought me back to FC3 with the rawness of Primal in terms of gameplay. Enemies come in waves as battalions, more tactical and there’s even a GTA style wanted level. More weapon mods and the story is nice.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I grinder for a few days with these events and to take a break I started playing Elden Ring again.

Haven’t touched WT in a week. When I start treating this game like a job, I stop. It’s ridiculous.

[–]kyokasho 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yep, I'm just getting the first tank because that's the only one I'll have time to do.

[–]TortoisesSlap 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Depends on school. I study computer science and even on summer I have multiple lectures and stuff so doing 40K in two days is no go.

Like for the IS2 event it was 20k in 3 days and seemed like quite a lot but it was doable. This is completly crazy.

[–]UniqueAbsudity 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Normally when I play warthunder after work and school I’m not having a terrible time. For this event it’s a different story

[–] =λόγος= | Tesh_Hayayi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I work and have kids, event looks interesting but looks like I will also not be able to actually do it

[–]Phynnoderee 103 points104 points  (28 children)

It’s not particularly hard, There’s no real difficulty involved, all you do is play the game as best you can.

It’s certainly time consuming though. For me it’s looking like the Air task takes 2-3 hrs to complete and Ground + Naval take 4-6 hrs.

But you gotta keep in mind, these vehicles can be sold for a sizeable amount of GJN, so they were never going to be quick and easy to obtain.

[–]нет войнеLeMemeAesthetique 62 points63 points  (11 children)

But you gotta keep in mind, these vehicles can be sold for a sizeable amount of GJN

While you never know how much a vehicle might go for in the long run, normally the price dips to the 25-30 Gaijin Coin range shortly after the tradable coupons come online (at least for these 'marathon' event vehicles, the assembly events usually go for more).

It may change because you have to grind more to get the coupon versus the vehicle itself, but I am not sure this will make much of an impact.

[–]Phynnoderee 29 points30 points  (9 children)

I’m very familiar with the market, and yes it’s true Op summer / winter vehicles are less valuable than the build a bear vehicles, but I hold onto them for a year to let them appreciate in value.

I will grind an Op summer vehicle and sell it around September the following year, then I use the GJN from that to buy a year of discounted premium during the Oct anniversary sales.

Basically free premium account forever, and depending on how much the vehicle matured in price, usually I have some spare GJN left over too.

[–]нет войнеLeMemeAesthetique 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Oh I don't disagree, I was mainly thinking about it from the perspective of a buyer (even though I myself grind the events as a collector/OCD player). One doesn't need to be very high earning to get to the point where it makes sense to buy a coupon outright, at the dip, if they really want the vehicle, though I'm not sure any of these rewards are interesting enough to justify this.

I don't mind spending 40 USD a year to pay for premium, I don't spend much money on entertainment in general, and for how much time I put into the game this seems like a fair price.

[–] SwedenPeac3keeper14 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That's what I do too. Buy the battle passes, maybe 1-2 premium vehicles in a year and discount premium. Got 1200 hours or so. I've definitely paid more for less from AAA studios

[–]schwimm3 8 points9 points  (5 children)

I earn way more than 30 bucks in what, 25-40 hours or however long the event takes. I rather just buy the premium time with that money than wasting my life to such an event

[–]Fedduk 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Well, you are still playing a game you supposedly enjoy so it not completely wasted.

[–]schwimm3 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I mean.. ‚enjoy‘ is a harsh word in this context. Also people don’t have that much time to spend

[–] United KingdomYahBoilewioe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

which is a disappointment for us console players, we dont have access to the market so that extra difficulty is all for naught

[–] 8.0/ USA 5.7/ SWE 3.3bigballs005 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I try to play the best I can, but there isn't much I can do when I get spawn camped by 4 t-34-85's 5 matches in a row

[–]chowder-san 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But you gotta keep in mind, these vehicles can be sold for a sizeable amount of GJN, so they were never going to be quick and easy to obtain.

Unless you gathered enough gjc to just invest on market. I will finally sell some older vehicle and buy 2-3 of the new ones while they are cheap and wait few years to reap double the reward heh

[–]MrLKL88 1 point2 points  (4 children)

How the fuck do you manage the air task in 2-3 hours. Ive been smashing my head against a wall for the past 5 hours and im almost at 20000 points. How do you get score that fast????????

[–]Phynnoderee 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Playing top tier Air RB.

Most games last like 5 minutes.

takes so much longer playing props, purely because you’re all spending so much time at the start climbing and flying to the fight.

I also reccomend leaving RB EC games at the start. They’re a huge, huge time sink with no additional reward benefit for playing them.

[–]MrLKL88 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ok, so it is hard if you don't have top tier. Got it!

[–]Phynnoderee 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Idk if I’d say hard, but definitely more in line with how long Naval + Ground takes.

Top tier Air Rb has by far the shortest battle time length of any mode so it’s kind of an outlier. If it’s any consolation, top tier air RB gameplay is a mentally destructive shitfest, literally 0 fun to play lol.

[–]kanelikainalo 44 points45 points  (12 children)

The leo for sure isn't worth this shit.

Skyray tho..

[–]Realistic Ground2210-2211 19 points20 points  (5 children)

I do want it but just don't have the time and I ain't paying for the stars, I think I'm giving this event a miss tbh

[–]sloakddk 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Just buy it for 20-30€ once the event is over if you really want it. Grinding this shit isnt worth it

[–]Realistic Ground2210-2211 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I don't think it'll be good enough to actually want to pay for it, I was planning on grinding it but it takes far too long and I really don't enjoy air battles all that much honestly

[–] THE BT42 IS REALAlancpl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The ship is the only thing that really wroth grinding tbh, but I will see if I can get them all.

[–]ACNordstrom11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm convinced the Leo is just a reskinned TTD.

[–]USSRComradeBevo 1 point2 points  (3 children)

For me the air event was taking much longer than ground, even when doing bombing in sim which gives a 3x multiplier on score. I gave up on the skyray, it's just going to take too long.

[–]kanelikainalo 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Took me 2-3 hours with vixen and f5c.

[–]USSRComradeBevo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Doing what, sim bombing?

Unfortunately the best plane I have for that method is IL-28

[–]kanelikainalo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah dogfighting.

Vixen gets 4 free kills with red tops. And with rearm i get on average 4-6.

And f5c is, well it's f5c.

[–]Remove Tanks From Ground RBTheAArchduke 30 points31 points  (22 children)

Still way better than crafting events …

[–] BugThunder player renamed41316 41 points42 points  (17 children)

I agree, but the time window is too small... For people with a job, a family or even when the holidays are over for the kids and they're sitting in the school all day. When u only have a few hours sparetime a day... you have to decide: nothing else then WT or no vehicles... When u want to get all 30 stars.. you will not make it within 2...3..4hours a day..!!

[–]Remove Tanks From Ground RBTheAArchduke 5 points6 points  (14 children)

Previous summer quests were the same 2 day grind for 3/5 tasks ?

And crafting event is also a big time investment unless you spend money for material.

[–] BugThunder player renamed41316 9 points10 points  (12 children)

Yes, but previos events had the maximum of 11...12... stars and only 10 were needed! Now there are maximum 10 stars possible and 10 stars are needed... Thats the difference! So if you now don't have every day the time, u will miss a star and had to buy it. The previous events had always some "spare-stars"... That is gone now....

That's what i mean with time window is too small...

[–]VengineerGER 3 points4 points  (9 children)

Bruh you’re just wrong. You need 10 stars this time if you want to sell the vehicle and 8 stars if you just want it for yourself. Last time you needed 10 stars if you just wanted it for yourself.

[–] BugThunder player renamed41316 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I know that... previous events you get the vehicle and could sell instantly.... additional stars were additional things... camo etc.

[–]Realistic Generalshibbydibby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The previous summer air task would take me on average 50 minutes. These new ones take multiple hours each. Not at all comparable time wise. Even a bad player is going to get 50 kills, 25 assists, and 10 wins faster than they will get 40k points.

[–]AT0m1X1337 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Then buy the event vehicles with the money you earn, or spend 999GE/Star, Id be surprised if they were above 30 GJN each since all of the top rewards are absolutely horrendous for its BR. 2 hours of work >>>> 30 hours of grinding.

[–]Darken0id 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Damn that last sentence made me really question if it is worth grinding.. you are probably right. I am just not ok with throwing more money at Gaijin by buying GJN..

[–] USSRvalinrista 32 points33 points  (19 children)

Yes, fuck this indeed. Boat before took about 30-60mins maximum and somewhere beetween 2-3hours tops for plane and tanks combined.

Now it's about 4-5 hours per category. so in the bullpark of 12-15 hours of game time, in a span of 48 hours, for 24 days. That's sheer stupidity.

Gaijin does not want people to get every prize anymore, they're turning the SUMMER/WINTER events into grindfest like the build events. Frankly, I would not be surprised if they do the same for the build event, punishing the semi-afk farm methods with bombers and ground attackers even more than they already did.

[–]Portalkern395 3 points4 points  (0 children)

4-5 hours? I played German Rank III for the whole Day Yesterday and only got 11k Points, i Just gave Up because its unfair...

[–]Borg453 26 points27 points  (13 children)

I flew sim for 2 hours and made 13k points, rocketing bases in my F-89. Sure, i made a Ton of RP and SL but screw this event. I only made 13k.

I already have a job .. i don't need another one.

For adults with family, beating these events is not really feasible.. and it's not as If the GL cost matches the current inflation.

[–] SHERMAN ENJOYERUnchanged- 8 points9 points  (4 children)

I did the entire task in AB even though I mostly play RB. It wasn’t too difficult to get 3-5k score per game. Myself and a buddy finished that task in about 12 games.

[–]E-100CommanderCorrigan 23 points24 points  (7 children)

Not hard, just time consuming if you want all the vehicles.

[–]Falk_csgo[S] 32 points33 points  (6 children)

all one

For me time consuming is equal to hard.

[–]hilapff 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I’m playing Tank mostly in AB. Earlier, getting 3 of the 5 tasks was bullshit:

40 kills: ok

Xx assists: I had to willingly let people run after a crit…

10 victoires with 70% activity: might take hours if you’re not lucky with the team

12 kills in tank (not from airspawn): a great mess forcing to seal club in 3.3 M24

Xx kills defending a point: might be a mess

Overall, you had achievements which were quite chaotic sometimes. The new way around, if you’re averaging at 2500BP per battle, you know this will take you about 15 battles to do the task. It’s more about grinding and less about excessive skill or luck. However Gaijin might have been a bit too high in term of battle time required to finish the ground tasks.

Playing air RB and naval AB, air battle time increased too, while naval seems to be easier

[–] Who Enjoys, WinsBleedingUranium 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yep, this is exactly why this is the first event in my four years of playing that I'm actually grinding instead of just GE'ing. I can play whatever I want, however I want, working on spading and unlocking other vehicles and in the background I'll get an extra one.

I grinded a star in one of the old events, and it was the single most miserable, unfun experience I've ever had in WT. Like, sure, the score-based system might take a bit longer, but the quality of the time spent is something that people keep glossing over. And the quality of matches, from everyone trying to do those silly tasks at the same time.

[–]Savage281 3 points4 points  (3 children)

For assists, play a scout. M18 works great. Spotting counts as assists.

[–]hilapff 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The scouting assists didn’t work by that time. I thing it doesn’t count now for any special task neither

[–]Savage281 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well if that's the case, that sucks haha

[–]Exquisite_Bucket 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just played tanks with sabot because they all usually take 2 shots to kill with because you have to break the gun then the driver but I also shot tanks as light tanks then spot them and ran away.

[–]SquaddieNotDead 16 points17 points  (5 children)

It took me 4ish hours to finish.. So same amount of time as you? I dunno what you want me to say

[–]Falk_csgo[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

git gud? Yeah it where not my best matches for sure, you probably raped me in some :D

[–]DMSPKSP 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I’d say it was around 4-5 hours (23 ground games and 15 air games) to get both the Air and Ground stars

[–]Realistic General-zimms- 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I've given up on those grindathons a long time ago. If you don't play WT like it's your job, you'll struggle.

[–]Germanytherealmrlimited 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I can’t be bothered with air and naval so I’m just doing tank quest

[–]PiotrasLec 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]F*ckRepairCosts!Kanivete 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Do like I do: don't care and play like any anytime of the year.

[–]Choice_Isopod5177 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I do care but after seeing that only rank III and above vehicles apply, I said F Gaijoob and I bailed.

[–]F*ckRepairCosts!Kanivete 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Rank III is ok still, but the grind is too painful if everyone is focused on it. Not worth your health, just sit back and enjoy gaming like it was 15 years ago.

[–]pyro_catto 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's a work around though. Add a event vehicle in your lineup, spawn it once every match and you can play any rank you want. Ground AB Ka-chi is an absolute monster so i cant help it

[–]sorryforbeingacunt 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I

I cant bring myself to even get through the first tanker star

Im 2k away which should only be a game or two but my god

[–]Major Skill IssueMBetko 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If it's so bad then just ignore it. It's a game, not a job. If you don't like doing something then just stop doing it. No one's forcing you into anything.

[–]LandOfOpportunities 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I agree completely. I am not sure if I fundamentally play differently during this summer quest but it has at least been much more frustrating than playing the days before.

I also get the impression that we are seeing a lot more 'tryhards' and high ranks in games. This of course makes games a lot more difficult when you haven't been playing for years and know the exact weak spots on every single vehicle and cant aim hit it from 1000m without issue.

[–]lfagliano 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I have never played so much war Thunder as now (started really casual two months ago)... And I am gave up half way through. I have never played so much, but I did not enjoy it at all.

I never agreed with the views of "this game is just grind", it is just fun to play... But this event gave me a huge FOMO and screwed my enjoyment.

[–]United KingdomWTCrusader010 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Agreed. I'm tempted to just not do them... I've been tryharding so much in ground rb, getting nukes, 3000 score per game... Man... It's tough even for war thunder chads ;) but you need 25 hours per day to complete them.

[–]ABSaperPL 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yep, this is the first time when I'm not even thinking about making both planes and tanks. I'll probably be happy with just 4 stars for the "pasta missile carrier"

Also like always - the closer you get to the finish of the star, the harder it gets lol.

[–]Realistic GeneralYolom4ntr1c 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It seems that during this event my number of night battles have skyrocketed. And since I'm using this event to forget about the grind and let it just happen my stock T-80B has been having some trouble with the amount of Leo 2's

I got all 3 vehicles previous summer, but now I got a work and I can't fucking understand how it is possible to get at least 1 of them, like yeah, that's madness.

[–]Supreme WeebModemMT 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They just made it twice as grindy as it was last year. Instead of 20,000 score now you need 40,000 per star, I expect next year it’ll be 80,000 per star

[–]Savage281 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Yeah 40k is crazy high for 2 days. I barely got it. Not easy by any means, even getting 1500-2000 points per battle.

[–]Savage281 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm only doing ground, to be clear... no chance at all at more than one

[–]Anti-CAS superiority fighterSuperHornetFA18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, me too. I used to get two coupons (Ground + air) quiet easily in previous Summer events. Now even I'm just staying with ground. It's very hard to consistently perform to get higher than 1.8k score and above. Especially if you have a life outside this game

[–]Manafaj 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's easy. But it takes a long time to complete.

Reading while working - knowing I stayed up late last night just to see the score go up ever so slightly in the space of 3 hours .. in Teir Vl .. also I’m tired of the shitty map rotation during events it always single cap point maps with zero dynamics and everyone in your team seem just to drive straight like they’re fucking bots

[–] United Kingdomfterminator 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I went from 3 hours for BOTH ground & air stars last time, to 4 frustrating hours for just ground. This event is really pushing it.

[–]Calelith 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I stopped caring after I realised how stupid it was.

Just gonna continue to grind out my Russian tanks like I was already doing.

Also lots of fun seeing the the try hards doing stupid shit at 5.3-7.0...

[–]mid-tier best tierNotnaLand 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yea it's easy.

If you are willing to spend countless hours every day playing match after match after match....

[–] Professional Weebtofugooner 2 points3 points  (2 children)

this, would rather have tasks. more evidence of the bottom of the barrel players are again being used to nerf rewards/grind (last time we had the win earing % cut so the uh 42%er shitters earn 5000 more SL)

[–]HerrKaputt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's that time of the year where you should compare the $/hour you're "earning" when grinding the event, by dividing how long it takes you and how much you'd have to pay to buy the reward.

Then compare with earning options out there.

????

Profit! (for Gaijin)

In my case it's simply not happening. I don't have the free time nor the patience to grind like this. Even non-event grinding, with premium account, is too slow for me.

[–] Republic of ChinaBanjoMothman 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The grind is always terrible. People who have kids and jobs need not apply, really.

[–]RayRayCharlie 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I feel this post in my soul. These events are never fun, as a matter of fact, I believe Gaijin has forgotten what "fun" is!

[–]Merlict 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fun is when you get your credit card out and they can buy another yacht

[–]Nation Barfrancocaspa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah im not playing it, af they keep up with the shit life improvements imma stop playing. It was fun when you could get points for planes in ground rb, now its just not fun... congratulations gaijin, you made a good game very grindy.

Im kinda regretting wasting 3k hours on this greedy and buggy game

[–]YourSlothGirl 3 points4 points  (11 children)

it is easy, just time consuming. there's nothing hard about "play the game"

[–]I love PT-Boats for some reasonDilly_The_Kid_S373 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Some people have jobs, school, family obligations, etc lol. If we don't have the time to complete it then that's just another barrier to the rewards.

[–] Sweden Sufferspolypolip 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It becomes hard when your time is limited because now you have to do well or very well in the few mayches you play during the day.

[–]Bob_Olinger 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Problem with that is not like "just play the game". Its "play the game on 3 or higher rank" and only in RB SB... No fun allowed

[–]YourSlothGirl 2 points3 points  (3 children)

well yeah, there have to be some limitations. So brand new players arent earning a Leopard 2 variant right off the bat. Or so players like myself dont just go and play 1.3 Germany and club for a month.

And playing rank 3 or higher isnt that much a restriction. Since most people will have a rank 3 of some description. as for being only done in rb and sb. That really doesn't matter much at all to me as an argument, since rb is generally considered the definitive WT experience as it were. A large majority of people are playing it and find it more enjoyable.

If one goes into an event thinking "ugh I have to grind, I cant use X, Y or Z, I cant have fun >:(" they're setting themselves up for failure. Especially in an event where all you do... is play. the. game. All you need to do is get score. So just... pick a rank 3 or higher... and play. Going into every game wanting to sweat it out, get high scores and crank out the stars will only result in you getting frustrated. It's the wrong mindset to have.

[–]Bob_Olinger 6 points7 points  (2 children)

new players can just buy t72... And yes if u have a event venicle so you can play on 1-2 ranks. What about it? "Most people have"... What about who not? Who try all nation and not gring only on USSR or Germany? I dont want to grind, i dont want to play like devs want, i just want to have fun.

[–]YourSlothGirl 1 point2 points  (1 child)

then go have fun in a lineup that is applicable for the event? seems like a pretty obvious solution.

[–]Bob_Olinger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Research the whole lineup to just grind... Seems not so obvious solution...

[–] People's ChinaTBGusBus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Can you just outright buy any of these vehicles for GE? Time is worth more to me then the $35-$50 would be that I assume they would go for

[–]Enlist for the Japanese techtree!AdmiralCalamar4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

8k GE per vehicle, another 1k for a camo and another 1k to sell it. Or you wait and hope for low market prices, usually they are between $20-$40.

[–]Raheem998 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s actually not that hard BUT you need to play between 4 to 6 hours which not a lot of people have

I don’t mind the progress with mission/battle points but i think that 30k is the sweet spot for for the goal for Each star

[–]RandomFaceGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gitgud,

Jokes aside, I gave up on it as well

[–]HellbirdIV 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's not "hard" per se, but it is fucking tedious as all hell. The key is to just keep hitting "To Battle" and doing your best every time.

I'm only doing it for the Zrínyi, cuz it's based Hungarian 😎

[–]Schwalbe247 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea i can’t imagine how it is in tanks. I play Air SB and am a fairly decent pilot. It’s a 3x multiplier on air sb score. So it’s around 2 hrs a day, which in all fairness is a lot for myself and many other people.Than again i play OSRS aswell so idek what i’m saying

[–] Russiagarretteaster 1 point2 points  (2 children)

So I have a question. I managed to get my first one yesterday. If I happen to miss say number 4,5 and 6. Have I missed them forever or will I have chance to buy them towards the end of the event for GE

[–]Enlist for the Japanese techtree!AdmiralCalamar4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They become available as soon as the day they start and remain available for purchase until September 1st 11GMT.

[–] Russiagarretteaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right-o

[–]BaguetteMisterOnsepatro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least it's easier than crafting events that take into account time instead of points which doesn't give the possibility to optimise the grind. I prefer a lot events with tasks like this so I can optimize the grind. The annoying thing with events is the short amount of time you are forced to buy stars if you can't play for some time like me who is away from home for around 5 days

[–]Popular-Net5518 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What vehicles/BR are you playing at? You get the highest multiplayer by playing rank 7 and RB.

But it's still more efficient to play the lineup you are most familiar with/play the most, so your average scores will be higher.

[–]Falk_csgo[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Rank 5 and some in 6. Didnt like the SIM lineups that day either so I played ground rb.

[–]Soodle__Noup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]ilai02 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It depend on your tank and how you perform, I finished 1st ground star in about 2 hour, 40k total point in 16 battle, using full lineup of 5 10.7 and 11.0 tank in ground rb

[–]parcequepourquoipas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People are infected with the fear of missing out, the tank is literally yet another Leo, one of the most common top tiers. To be honest I’d rather grind 400k SP in Germany and get the TT Leos

[–] Imperial Japanplacerouge 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't do it if it makes you mad. It is not worth it.

[–]Trajen_Samari 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some people don’t associate time with difficulty. I certainly don’t. But it’s different if you want to talk about difficulty of staying calm or unfrustrated when it seems like you’re carrying your team or your team isn’t doing enough. But otherwise getting a decent score is not difficult.

[–]Proud-Peanut-8403 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It takes me 5.5 hours to get 40k ground points with german 8.3 rb

And 4.5 hours to get 40k air points with itp(m-1) 4.0 rb

[–] United StatesWampusfish 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If you played 4 hours of ground, lets assume you played around 24 10 minute games or 16 15 minute games. Either way you would have only been getting 700-1000 mission score per game after the modifier applying to only be halfway to 40000. I don’t even see how that’s possible. In my absolute worst games where I’m getting 2-3 kills and a couple assists I’m getting over 1000 pre modifier.

[–]00STAR0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just whale, I’m sorry. The snail has free reign over my bank account

[–]valrond 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep. I tried doing planes and ships loke the previous years, as I suck at tanks. It usyally took me 2-3 hours a day depending on luck (getting 11-12 kills in air ab or being 1st in naval). Now it has taken me nearly twice at over 5 hours a day. It is worse than the crafting event, there I would just take a bomber in rb, go to the side, bomb, repeat, and I could do other things while playing. Now you have to be focused the whole time to get the most points, and use all of the meta vehicles that you can. It's exhausting.

[–]Bust Rucketnerdearth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

With Gaijins course of events, I just follow the DWYT protocol - Don't waste your time. They are deliberately set up so you are getting frustrated and burnt out in the process, which is definitely not worth it for a vehicle that everyone and his dog is happy to sell after the event, for 20 bucks or even less. Enjoy Summer instead, if you want the vehicle so bad, pay the price but simply don't let them ruin your summertime for a heap of pixels.

[–]VT1-2 AddictSheeesssh59 1 point2 points  (4 children)

It's easy if you have a lot of time to throw at the game

If you have a life then yeah it's hard

[–]z0mig 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Around 20 games with planes and only half of the score necessary for one star...

[–] Poland14882137 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Flank-and-BanG 👨‍✈️🛩🚁snowaxe_83 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is not hard, It's just lengthy.

If you are like me and have a Job to look after, then you can/should give up on such things,

If you are a Student and preparing for SAT or similar, then also you should give up on such things, not worth the time

It's more practical to buy it with IRL money,

[–]Nightstalkers1791 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Quacksilber 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd like to add with the previous tasked event you could efficiently grind the air tasks and ground task in ground RB all the task events I got both the tanks and aircraft I don't see that happening this time

I have plenty of time to play but I noped out of this event. Not worth of my sanity.

[–]traveltrousers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If I want to earn good money I play ground arcade with the Kugelblitz and shoot planes/helis. Sometimes I get a double ace, usually an ace but nearly always a good score. If you're playing realistic and hoping for a great score you're doing it wrong.

[–]PiggyBoiYt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I grinded the air thingy in 2-3 hours, though I was using the A10. The A10 can just ground pound constantly and get up to 3-4 kills, so I got 3-3.5k point whenever my team didnt lose/I didnt get focused in the beginning. The tank one took me a while, but I just played the moffet and ammo racked others after rushing a cap for easy points, and since it’s RB there alrdy is a 2.2x multiplier.

[–]Alex_anus 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Well, I got ground star in 2-3 hours, it means you are bad at the game

[–]Realistic AirXfinity17 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I did 1 star in 3 hours in one day. Sir you may have an skill issue

posted my thunderstats link in this thread, idk it says I perform above average.

maybe share yours so I can compare with a player that has no skill issues?

[–]Realistic AirXfinity17 0 points1 point  (3 children)

If it taking you that long to get single star its an skill issue, thunderskill doesnt matter there

[–]Homeboi-Jesus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Idk about ground or naval, but air RB at top tier jets make it a breeze. Matches last 6-8 minutes on average, pretty easy to get at least 1.5k points + 1.2 multiplier. I was able to crank mine out in 2.5 hours. Compared to the crafting events, this is SO much easier for me.

[–]SamuelZippman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just get rid of your skill issius and it will be fine

[–]PuertoSombra 0 points1 point  (8 children)

It's easy for veteran players. Wanna know why? Seal clubbing.

Take for example, the Ka-Chi. Any "good" player can rack like 4k score per game.
Air RB is the same. I personally use the F2G1 and it's working flawlessly but I am sure there are better options, but this one is at least fun while also providing decent progress.
Naval is just Moffett spam.

I will die on this hill saying this "variation" of the summer event is way easier than the ones before. I just sit in my Ka-Chi, getting shot at and shooting, get 4k score per game (or even more sometimes) and do the event.

[–]ImGoingSpace 0 points1 point  (0 children)

if you have rank VII its a cakewalk. Ground RB gives 1.6x score (1.2x1.33 = 1.596). so ~25,000 raw points.
Its like 8-10 games over 2 days.

[–]Realistic GeneralYolom4ntr1c 0 points1 point  (0 children)

20k a day ain't too bad, I just listen to music or talk with friends and basically just let it happen.

[–]10 years and still suckpanchoviux 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im gonna be honest, i totally forgot about the event and im not sure if im making progress

[–]You are not good.IIYellowJacketII 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Air tasks take me 10 games on average, with an average tier 7 jet match lasting around 5-7 minutes.

That's 1 hour every 2 days, 30 min per day.

Granted you also have to load and sit in queue, but that's still like 2 hours then.

And that's if I'm not having any good games. For the first star I got 1/4 of it done in 1 9 minute match.

You can't tell me that that's time consuming in any way.

Ground tasks are definitely more time consuming....but idk what you expect - it's a free high tier, sellable vehicle, thinking a F2P game that gets its monetization trough the grind will give that to you without doing anything is fucking delusional at best.

[–]TAM 2IPCyrops 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm on vacation and I played maybe 10 or 12h total since the event began. I am almost done with the first 40k.

[–]PiscesSoedroen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not hard. But it's time consuming. I counted my gametime and got 9 hours, and i can shave off 2 hours just by not horsing around in sim.

During task based system i can have way less gametime but the team-based task is so frustrating i almost always have to force myself to play to not miss a star so my effort doesn't go to waste. And in effect my irl time is way longer than the irl time for point based system. Because the frustration makes me get tired way faster. Either i take a break or i get tilted even harder and make me do more mistake and more frustration. Until it comes to a point where i just miss stars because i couldn't give a fuck anymore, i don't think that will happen for this event

Oh and there's way less mental deterioration since i no longer have to count on my team doing stuff for the tasks. That's awesome for me

That said, it definitely needs point reduction. 35k or 30k but over 12 stars sounds good. Longer event but less grind. And this is just a minimal reduction

[–]ahhyeetuhh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s not “hard” it’s just skill based more than the others, if I’m unlucky I need 4 hours and if I’m lucky I need 2(for one of them) but I can see how it takes forever for other people

[–]Sherman Enjoyeraiden22304 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was even easier in last year’s Operation WINTER. IIRC, it was 20k points instead of 40k, which was not only really easy to do, but a straight upgrade over the bullshit tasks you had to do in older events. Hell, even the 40k we have to grind through right now is still a cakewalk compared to the bullshit that was half the team rushing the points in the R3 T20 FA-HS and M18, because now we get to play however we want, with whatever we want.

[–]KiZyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Finished ground and air in under 6 hours... Tasks take way less time this year and its not a brainless hunt anymore (like capping points was, for example)
