Anyone Remember "Project R"? When Will There Be Something Similar Again?

Anyone remember the "Pearl Event" that they had a while back... I think it was called "Project R" 

Where you earned Pearl's to open case's that eventually lead to earning a "Kamikaze R" 

That was so much fun... I have been waiting... and... waiting for another event like that again. 

WG any chance we will see something similar anytime soon???

Yep - one going on right now for the very same ship.  Not the same as the pearls but the end result is the same.

I feel bad for those who didn't participate in Project R, because Clash of Elements is way more grindy than Project R was.

it's not even funny, the current event is a hot garbage if you compare it to the original project r

 

a) this event it's nearly impossible to get the ship because it needs a tremendous amount of grind, more than to reach rank 1 in ranked, while project r gave away the ship for completing rather easy weekly missions

 

b) even if you get the ship it will be your only reward, while project r gave away a ton of other rewards on top of giving you the ship

 

c) project r sold the ship to those who didn't have time to complete the tasks but wanted the event ship regardless, there is a high chance that wg won't do it this time because they said they wouldn't sell kamikaze again (they can sell coins to circumvent it, but will they?)

 

d) kamikaze was a new ship when she was given away during project r, right now she is one of the most common premiums and most of the active players own a copy

The "war of the elements" bit is sort of like it, just way less fun, way more grindy and pretty much, as it is, impossible unless you are super hardcore 24/7 grinding or one of the top 100 players during the 3 weeks.

This is meant to be the new project R, enjoy your grind.

 

yet ... it's not.

(same old ship, new camo, same in-game benefits, improved after-game benefits)

lol I'm being super sarcastic.

 

It's definitely nowhere near as good as Project R.

Project R was a far better event. Wholeheartedly agree with that. It was actually doable by your average players who had lives outside the game. Already have mine from that event, so just playing as normal. If I earn something, that's just a bonus I guess.  Camo is kind of tacky looking on it I think, even though the bonuses are nice.

Yes, but Project R came with its own major issues, like initially offering a small number Of Kamikaze through that initial lottery plan

ah yes... the lottery... had forgot about "The Lottery".  Kind of an early indicator of the coming trend of Super Containers.

It's like Wargaming doesn't realizes that most of the people who play this game can't afford the grind.

You bring shame upon yourself Kitty, I remember you left the forums for some time after (correctly) pointing out the flaws compared to EU

yes, we complained and they changed it

i don't see any signs of them wanting to change clash of elements to make it more accessible, and the sad thing it's that, even before the change, project r was much better than clash of elements, still offering ample rewards and selling the ship for its fair price to those who were unlucky; the only good thing about this new event it's that you can get engine booster and radar modules...

That... Is my only interest. I have become very fond of these

I still say "Project R" was a much better event all round in. lt was easy to understand and you had choices in rewards with the Pearls you "Earned". Anyways I hope they (WG) can create another event layed out like Project R was.  Yes they have the Clash event but it does not even shine as a candle in comparison to it.  I am sure if they check the numbers that participated in Project R compared to Clash they will see the difference... if not well.... It is up to them
