Once the difficulty gets to extreme, you just can’t overcome the diehards on Glory. That’s the day to switch, and then everyone switches back on the next day.

The day the team becomes extreme is the day to buckle down and grind those tokens!

No science … I'm just looking out the window

I wish I had the time to do that.  I’m lucky if I can get two games in a day.

This is my problem also. The path to the Lazo and a whole lot of other content besides is quite clear, but real life doesn't leave me with enough playing time to go there!

When the teams switch sides, that's the best opportunity to pick low hanging fruit for less effort 

You get the win and favorable rewards for playing 500 points or less … 

Also, you may still have a chance to do well in hall of fame for added tokens, before the rest pile in 

I don't like crowded trades

Can you earn more than 300 points when you play? If you can not get more than 300 points, then pick the team that is looking to win today. If you can earn more than 300 points, then you want to first determine how many points you think you can earn that day and then pick from the list in the thread below.

If you earn less than 300 points, you want the team winning today. Otherwise you want to pick the team that lost yesterday if you will earn less than 1,500 points. If you earn more than 1,500 points, pick the team that won yesterday.

Loyalty is just a thing of the past I guess. Honor or glory, doesn't matter just who's paying the most to win today. Turning us into a bunch of mercenaries.

I usually don’t earn over 300 points, so I just try to guess the winning team, and then I at least get the team points.

It doesn’t really matter all that much for me though.  I bought some crates to get the BB missions, and that got me enough eventiums to buy the perma-camo for my Chapayev, which was the only thing I really wanted.  There’s no way I could get enough to buy the Lazo, unless I spent a lot of money buying crates.  That’s not going to happen, as I’d rather just play my Chappy.

The Chappy is a fun ship and one that you definitely want a permanent camo for since the tier 8 grind can be soul sucking. I am with you, probably can not get the Lazo either but if I read the website correctly, there is another event coming where you can earn her for free later this month. I didn't see any specifics, just the dates but my guess is it would be a campaign like for the Indianapolis or Exeter.  Might check it out if you are interested in the ship.

My understanding was that the prize ship in 0.8.4 becomes the Murmansk (Russian Omaha). Just bear in mind that I also got the idea that the temporary currency is going to change so you can't use the tokens you're earning now to put towards her.  I'm waiting for more details, but until then I'd be quite satisfied with the Murmansk as a second Russian premium because I liked the Omaha and I'd be sort-of used to the ship straight out of the box. I can use the tokens I earn in 0.8.3 to spam crates for an unlock (and everything else they give), and/or pick up some permacamos.

I’ve already ground up to the Moskva.  I just really liked the Chappy, and kept her.

Loyalty to what?  These are just arbitrarily created teams with arbitrarily assigned names.  There is nothing and nobody to be loyal to.

It’s a little disturbing to see just how easily we can all be swayed toward loyalty to something so meaningless.

Yeah, I remember some people making similar comments about loyalty during the Sharks/Eagles competition.  They stuck with the losing team the whole time for reasons which are beyond my understanding.

Then whats the point of picking teams if your just gonna change sides the minute it gets to difficult? The whole setup is kinda stupid.

This event is just a way for players to earn rewards with regular play.  That being the case, the only sensible course is to play the game in such a way as to maximize those rewards.  Here,  that means switching teams when necessary.

People are tribal … 

All we need is another band of chimps, so we can start shaking branches, hooting and throwing poo :)

The teams have the same difficulty in battle. The modifier is for the team that lost yesterday to catch up and has nothing to do with personal points earnings. The team that won yesterday has a higher cap on points for earning Tokens, otherwise there is no difference. Loyalty to a team gets you a flag. If you want to maximize Tokens, you want to switch teams at some point.
