WHY The Germanic Beast Event is Comparatively Quiet

Ok, a few days ago, I posted about how “non-eventish” the Germanic Beasts event is. I think I know why:

The more understated/under the radar the event is, the fewer people will notice the dropoff in flags from the rewards change. The flags coming in from an unrealized event mask the flag loss in the rewards.

So, when players gripe about it next month, WG can say “Old news! Move along, nothing to see here.”

Yeah, but it wouldn’t be the first “elevator doesn’t go to the top” event WG has done. It’s just the quietest.

nope, this event is stupid. random times for missions, no goal, join a team, play like normal, hope WG loses players and money because of the stupid event planning

You can’t  “nope” me. I never disagreed.

The Beast event is badly done. Specifically time limits for the whole thing. In addition there seemed to be a loss in those like the Fuerer team that gained and qualified for the flag and 10+ commander overall (In addition to completing the personal bar below) a few days ago. Only those logged in got it. The rest got the shaft.

The time limits are the killer. It implies either lack of players or a desire to be controlling etc. The problem is most gamers cannot game by appointment against real life. I myself are in storm conditions this hour I dont dare game in Wows for fear of being D/C then banned or punished with pink because Wows does not know the difference between tornados ripping power wires off poles or intentional quit early.

 

So for me, this event is essentially something to let go and consider a tragic waste. One big MEH..... Ticket came back from support requesting a screen shot. REALLY?! HA. The event reset itself a couple of days ago for a fresh round of progress. Be damned if I do the same thing twice over. F that.

It didn't seem worth the time.

This "event" is a non-event. 

Agreed. Of course it is. I’m just postulating why.

The rewards are worthless. I could care less. Remember when events gave away ships like Duke of York?

Not entirely worthless,  just not worth much.  It's an event you don't have to pay attention to, earning a few event coins that can immediately be exchanged for a crate.  Doesn't matter what's in the crate.  Maybe a camo, maybe a few credits... all for doing what you're doing anyway.

What event?

There used to be events where you picked one team of two. Now it's 1 of 4, to prevent you getting too much rewards.

You can get some flags and some captains with no special skills or voice. Basically near worthless stuff, just like the new German destroyers.

I see what the layout is, it just doesn't make any sense.  Given how complicated they made the fundamentals of it on their end, what's the goal?  :Smile_facepalm:

Event isn't active during my usual play times, so it's definitely a non-event for me.  I think I have gotten a few rewards from it last weekend.  Didn't even bother picking a team this week.
