Info about IS-5 & campaign

Recommended Posts

Ya, but its 11k gold or more, and thats 1,500 IS5.

 

That still doesn't make it pay2win, pay2win implies you simply splash some money on an item that gives you a huge advantage over everyone else. A good example would be premium shells for gold, before they were made available for credits.

Wow and wtf... at playing just to earn the option to buy a reward tank. Make plenty of gold, but this is a hell of a money grab by WG. Now all they have to do is limit the amount of time you have to take them up on the offer and their marketing is complete.

Ok... I get it, thanks.

BTW people, purchasing the IS5 will only last about a month.

I thought after the 1k people who get it for free, an additional 1.5k got it discounted, no? Or is 11k gold the discount? In which case, WG, seriously?

Edit: nevermind, I'm bad at reading

Regulations (dates are for SEA)

 

Tank Commanders,

It’s about few days until the Armageddon event starts. Here are the detailed regulations of the event.

 

1. General Regulations of "Armageddon" event

1.1   The "Armageddon" event will be held from June 9th 08:00 (SGT) until June 19th, 08:00 (SGT)

All clans could take a part in the event - as already existing and created after the event began.

1.2   Below you could find key features of the game event and differences from the map with standard rules:

  • All the battles of the event will be held only on VIII tier vehicles.
  • Battles will only take place in provinces currently designated “the Tier 10 section of the Mediterranean map”
  • Riots, Ransacking are off.
  • New landing provinces will be added (link to the content page).
  • Vehicles freezing (Tank Locking) disabled.
  • A possibility to move chips into reserve without penalty.
  • The opportunity to participate in landing tournaments with captured provinces on Global Map.

1.3   On first day of the event on 9th June at 08:00 (SGT), World Redivision mode will be enabled.

  • All Provinces will be available for landing.
  • Espionage and Counterespionage will be turned on.
  • The maximum number of applications participating in landings during World Redivision is 32.
  • If, during a landing tournament, the battle against the Province owner ends as a draw, the Province goes to the challenging clan.

1.4   World Redivision ends on June 10 at 08:00 (UTC) after that the “Armageddon” event rules come into force:

  • If during landing tournament a battle with province owner ends as a draw, the province stays in old owner disposal.

 

2. Special Rules

Armageddon event will take place on the basis of consistent quests, each clan distinguished individually:

  • Land on the map, and capture the Control Center to get information about next quest.
  • Capture the province to get the aircraft "Belluzzo wheel".
  • Capture next province with the Launching pad. From this province a clan could move to landing province on secret region - New Swabia.
  • After winning landing tournament on New Swabia, a clan has to capture a Foothold to develop its offensive.
  • Capture a province with Reactor to supply Spaceport.
  • Capture a province with Spaceport to travel to new Global map.
  • Hold a Spaceport and capture the rest reactors to increase success.

2.1 Armageddon event map

2.1.1 When the map is open, the clan will be offered to select a reference prime-time, where it will operate. Only Commander and his Deputy could choose prime-time and only at the beginning of the first quest. At that clans will be able to carry out their activity on the Global map without accepting any of game quests. During the event a clan could choose a quest any time.

2.1.2 After reference prime-time is chosen, landing province will be assigned to clan randomly, which will be the first step in the quest. In this province there will be Control Center.

2.1.3 Since the reference prime-time was confirmed by responsible clan person, the clan is considered to start the quest quest.

Note: The same province can be a starting quest province for several clans. Thus, each of them will receive their individual tasks.

2.1.4 The first stage considered as completed if a clan won landing tournament and established his Headquarter on landing province. To complete the task a clan has 36 turns after getting a task.

2.1.5 The first stage is considered as failed if:

  • Clan has not submitted an application for landing tournament.
  • Clan doesn’t get into landing tournament queue.
  • Clan lost in landing tournament.

If a clan fails first stage, it will be given new task from first stage right after one of the mentioned points occurred.

2.1.6 If a clan succeeds in the first quest - land on the Map, capture Control center and creates its Headquarter, the clan gets the next quest – capture a province on which Belluzzo wheel will be able collected. This province will be selected randomly from the amount of provinces bordering with province with Control center. The target province for this quest may be assigned within +/- 1 hour different from the reference prime-time. If the target province is a landing province as well, a clan must submit an application to participate in landing tournament and win it to capture the province. The province will be considered as captured after a clan put a Headquarter on it. To perform this task a clan will have a limit of 36 turns.

2.1.7 As soon as a clan moves headquarters from the province with Control Center to the province with Belluzzo wheel, next quest province will be opened - Launching pad, which borders with province where the Belluzzo wheel situated and it will be selected randomly. Clan need to capture the Launching pad and move on it the Headquarters. The target province for this quest may be assigned within +/- 1 hour different from the reference prime-time. If the target province is a landing province as well, a clan must submit an application to participate in landing tournament and win it to capture the province. The province will be considered as captured after a clan put a Headquarter on it. To perform this task a clan will have a limit of 36 turns from the moment of accepting the task.

2.1.8 Capture Launching pad provides an opportunity to move to special event area - New Swabia. To move to New Swabia a clan must have not less than 15 chips.

2.1.9 Quest will be considered as failed if clan’s Headquarter will be lost and will go to the reserve at any of stages. In this case, a clan will get new task of the first stage even if this clan owns provinces on the map.

2.1.10 If a clan runs out of time and did not to move the Headquarter to captured quest province, new similar task will be given - new province will be randomly selected, bordering with the province where the Headquarter of the clan situated. At that this clan starts task progress from the point at which it was stopped.

2.2 New Swabia

2.2.1 New Swabia is a special event location where clans will be able to start proceed with the implementation of main goal of event. The only way to get to New Swabia is through Bridgehead, which becomes available only after the Launching pad is captured.

2.2.2 A clan captured the Launch pad will be automatically removed from the Map at a fixed time - 08:00 (SGT). All of clan’s chips and Headquarter will be sent to reserve and will remain active. After that, the clan will be automatically directed to the landing tournament on bridgehead - the province that are on the perimeter of Secret complex, which consists of Reactors and Spaceport. Clan points for capturing bridgehead charged only at the first landing on New Swabia.

2.2.3 If the clan has been defeated during the bridgehead tournament stage, or was knocked from the provinces of New Swabia, the clan will be automatically directed to a landing on the bridgehead. The number of attempts is unlimited. In case of a draw in battle with owner, the province will go to attacker clan.

2.2.4 After capturing bridgehead, a winner will have the possibility to attack Reactor – a part of secret complex, which provides clan Fame Points for its capture.

2.2.5 The main goal of the event is to capture Spaceport, which is surrounded by the Reactor provinces. Owning Spaceport, clans are able to capture the rest Reactors and get Fame points with increased coefficient of x4. By itself capturing the Spaceport will not provide extra Fame points.

Important: Recapturing the Reactor doesn’t bring Fame Points to clan.

2.3 Additional missions

2.3.1 Clan Fame Points can be earned not only by fulfillment of its quest tasks, but also creating obstacles to competitors.

2.3.2 Following additional missions will be available for completion:

  • "Search and Destroy" - defeat Headquarter of the clan with second or third quest from the Map to reserve. If clan’s Headquarter went to reserve, the winning clan will get extra Fame points to the treasury.

"The Guardian" – defend the province from attacks of the clan (clan) for whom this province is the target one.

"Fake" battles are in violation of the regulations and will be punished by a complete Fame points wipe or blocking offender game account.

In case of dispute on scoring the Fame points (suspected "fake" battles and etc) administration of the game has the right to request a battle replay, screenshots and other information relating to this situation. If the requested information is not provided, the decision will be made at the discretion of administration. We strongly recommend you to turn on the replay recording option in game settings.

Please refer to the forums for additional information on rule violations which will be announced before the event begins.

So licenses are given to the clan, and a player in that clan qualifies for these licenses only of he is also within the top #X by individual fame points.

What if you are within the top #X on an individual basis, but there aren't enough licenses given to your clan? Just wondering.. Not sure if this is a realistic possibility.

This looks like a shitstorm for those of us who comand clans.

 

For one day only, clans who win the landing tournament only need to draw against the landowners to win the claim - is that usual on these mini-campaigns?

Yes, it's the 'map settling' phase where the goal is to get on the map.  You are also able to participate in a tourney even if you are on the map.

 

I thought the licenses were a way to let top clans get more players the tank, but it sounds like it is a bit of the reverse; preventing bad clans from getting the tank just by running the same group of 15 in many battles.

 

If I understand correctly, only players in the top 16 clans will be able to get the tank for free (for SEA).  If you get into the top 1500 even in a bad clan you will be able to purchase the tank.

Which would totally make sense from WGs point of view. The people in top clans likely have enough free gold from CW/tourneys/league to buy the tank outright anyway so giving it to them for free isn't sacrificing any profit.

Players in less than top clans on the other hand most likely would have to hand over real money to WG to afford the 12k price tag. Price discrimination at its finest.

And since the top clans get 100 licenses,a player in a said clan with just 1 fap point still get the tank cuz why not.

Not sure if i'm getting it right,but 100 licenses would mean literally everyone in the clan who has ever participated.

Why they didn't just make this another top 3k again like the previous campaign is fucking beyond me.

Well they've never done a 3k mini campaign. Any campaign that gives a tier 8 has always been 1500 so they're shorting us 500.

Well, yes and no. The last mini campaign gave out 300x 112s, and an additional 900 T23E3s. I wouldn't even count the T23E3s really.
