No thanks........Randoms.   In American BB's......oh, that will be so much fun...........  Watching elephants walk is more fun than watching US BB's maneuver.

A leader board?  Trying to be a meritocracy we are?  That's even funnier than the event concept. 

Pass.  Good luck though............

That is a lot of words for something you're not interested in.

Yep.  That is true......  But, at some point, the repetition of status quo thinking requires more words......  And, it was really funny about the Leader Board concept in a game without any requirements for skill?  And, it's a constant reminder to our host that there are many facets and modes of play other than Randoms:..........a subtle hint that a great many spend a lot of time and money playing this game and are losing patience in the direction of events that are exclusive.....  That's all.  They won't listen but, one must try !

Oh, no. Please. 

WG is really incentivizing stagnant back line sniping gameplay. First they add this awful, extremely boring line of ships. Then they nerf the alternative to sniping. Now they are rewarding people to play those awful ships. Geez.

Not even a full year of premium account would make me take part in this madness. 

 

Now we are gonna get stuck with these ships in our teams.

Seems like a desperate ploy to get peeps to play those botes. I'm not participating first, because I don't like the split line, and second, because I already have the prize premiums. Even if I didn't have the prize premiums I am not that great a masochist...

ermmm think a few  of us ( a good few ) will choose not to opt-in  to start with . these ships are slow , boring to play   and not worth the effort   

good luck to the poor suckers  who opt -in  .  you will have plenty time to make a coffee or a stiff drink during reload times , maybe even manage to make your dinner

Assuming the majority of those that do opt in are gonna be flooding the queues w/Vermonts trying to get that Missouri in their port.

You guys are honestly just a bunch of crybabies. You don't have to participate, and it looks like cheap fun. It only takes one good battle to shoot you to the top.

That is an excellent quote. It may be lost on this topic, but in the main it is excellent.

If you have one of them you lose nothing by opting in and you might get some goodies if you make it into the top 100.

Complaining about optional free stuff is one of the most 2020 things I can possibly imagine.
