Ok. So I just completed week 1 of the event and opened 7 containers. I got a whopping 65 of the tokens. At that rate, thru the 4 weeks of the event, I won't even earn enough tokens to get the tier 5 cruiser. I'm not sure what the point of this event even is with this kind of ridiculous event.

 

UPDATE:Week 2 has ended. All containers possible opened. Looking at 225 tokens (yes, I got 3 that actually had 25 in each one). Interesting how that is good for nothing yet I already see players with the 2nd of the free token ships. WG. Just say it. If I don't give you real dollars, I get the shaft. There is nothing random about it.

 

Update: Week 3 directives. 295 total tokens. The bad joke just continues.

The point is, you grind for a whole month and you get a $5 permanent camo for a tier 5 ship that you don't even want.

Tada!!

 

Actually, the point of the event is that you grind for that month, find out you STILL don't have enough, get annoyed, then run out and buy gold to use for the random loopboxes.

 

WORKING AS INTENDED.

While I do agree the event is kind of ridiculous you are incorrect about the tier V premium. Assuming you collect every container and all of them were 5 tokens you will still have enough for Mikoyan.

I opened the 9 I got today, and have 95 tokens.  Have 4 more coming at some point from PTS, but yea....average 10 and change isn't making me too excited.

At least you get a free pull on the slot machine for 1,500 tokens!

I lost. Again. But it didn't cost anything.

Seriously, it's like WG is telling us to not bother with this event if you don't intend to whale.

THey aren't free until July; that's when they will be able to be researched normally in patch 0.9.6. Likely because WG wants to catch as many whales as they can.

Does anyone know if the token collecting extends into the next patch?

This event is hot garbage.  I have 75 tokes from 9 containers.   I am not sure why I am surprised tho. It was like that the last event too. I never got "lucky" enough to even get a ship.

So they're not in 9.5?  Meh. 

Opened my first container today, got 5 tokens.  I think it was a message from the gaming deities.

Many irrationally high expectations here as usual. If you get all the containers, you get a premium Tier V ship and an extra permacamo. You can argue that those are poor rewards if you like, that's a matter of opinion, but if you were expecting anything different... Why? It's basically been like this for more than ten updates. The reward for finishing all the directives for an update is a Tier V premium. Why are so many of you acting all surprised by this? If anything it's better, since at least you are guaranteed the Tier V, which in some updates has not been the case.

I can only speak for myself. It ain't working as intended in the context you stated. Next patch these cruisers will become tech tree ships. No incentive to rush out & buy them in my opinion.

I'll do the directives, collect the rewards offered and hope I have a good time doing so.

Dev strike. You can't argue with that. LOL

Aye, but wailing is another matter.

I got some tokens. But after my typical BB can opener appears to pen these ships well, it's as if they might be potentially as meh as the Euro DDs.

I would rather wait and see how it goes. I am more focused on the anniversary camos instead. Those permacamos seem to have better potential.

Mah bru.

I also got 65 tokens for completing directive 1.

I also did the math, and worked out that 1 + 1 = go stick your head in a bucket.

I take away from this exercise that I don't work for WG, and that other people do. They want me to know, they are better than me. They are up there, and I am down here.

Either that, or it is the angry toast people again, the one who scream and squint when they see folks spreading TOO MUCH JAM on their toast.

Those people are so angry.

But, why did WG let the angry people hand out the tokens?

Such a mystery. 

Anyway, I won't be bothered with the cruiser "event". It's just one more piece of weirdness, to go with all the other weirdness from times past.
