...for nine camo, WG? Really?

 

Please tell me that was a typo, and it's supposed to be 50k XP, not Base XP. Especially for the poor Co-op players, that's just insane for them.

 

*Disclaimer: I have thousands of camo, this is not a personal complaint. I just saw the mission and went: "...LOLWUT?!"

As I said in the other thread...

If I'm grinding 50000 base XP between now and Sunday night, that better be 9 permanent camos for 9 ships of my choice.

As I pointed out in the other thread, playing both Sessions of clan battles tonight and winning half your games should earn about 41k base xp.  It's probably doable for people planning to do that.  For the rest of us, yeah, it's a hell of a weekend grind for not much reward.

CB's isn't on tonight, it's Sat/Sun.

Ugh, you're right.  Weird work week for me, I'm totally out of sorts. 

But the mission expires early monday morning, right?

It does, but the reality is, after all the grinding they've dumped on us, is anyone really looking forward to this? Especially for what amounts to nothing?

Nope!  It seems like the sort of thing that 5% of the player base is going to earn by doing what they were going to do anyhow, and everyone else is going to ignore.  Weird thing to devote any resources to.

They're very good camos, but still...

And it's in a mission called "Birthday Gifts".  Some gift if you have to grind out 50k base XP in 3 freaking days!!!  Should have been more like 50k regular XP.

As soon as I saw it was base XP I lost all interest. I work for a living, I game for fun. WG has their heads up in the clouds lately.

More accurately, they have their heads in a cloud of something, and worse, they aren't sharing whatever it is.

Ah, apologies, I looked for a thread on this, but didn't see one. So, sorry for yet another thread on it.

I had to look at it for a full minute to make sure I wasn't simply misreading.....:Smile_teethhappy:

I honestly thought it was some kind of joke... I can't imagine anyone, even those who put in those kind of games would think that it's worth it for 9 camos, I don't care how good they are.:Smile_sceptic:

And therein is  the difference. They do WoWs for a living.

Ah. My mistake. They develop WoWs for a living, they "DO" us for fun.

They've given away ships for earning that sort of base XP over a month-long event. I got Southern Dragon and Katori that way.

I'm always glad to earn some nice camo, but that requirement over a weekend is ridiculous.

I'm always up for a challenge—earned the Benham for $0—but I'm taking a hard pass on this mission!

So the other mission, to get 21 main battery gun hits, can be accomplished with 6 seconds of gameplay with some ships, and awards a day of premium time.

this mission, which seems like a similar quality of reward, takes something like 5-10 hours of solid grinding, depending on game mode and player skill.

 

Really seems like a mistake... but it's got the same wording in-game and on the website, is that confirmed?

50k BASE XP for a few camos ?

Seriously ?

I rather spend that time running Hermelin in CO-OP and padding my kill ratio :-)

It's all ado about nothing - just play normally and if you get it, you get it. 

It is perfectly fair to reward high volume players.
