Well...apparently, this is indeed, how good it gets nowadays... xD 

 

I've been waiting for this mission very much, since finally, it's not MM that will decide how much exp I'll get, but my own skills. This mission was stated since its initial introduction (31st May!) that it will provide 250% (again, percent) exp bonus for the top 3 players in each team. Well, apparently, that's that. Gg, wp. :fish_palm:

Only WG could come up with this!

Classic.

Thanks for the good laugh.

(Kind of expected that something is fishy with that mission though, as it would give just too much xp - usualy it is very rare to even get an infinte repeatable +50% xp)

It says "250%" on NA portal too.... not a WGEU issue. Just another WG issue...

 

250XP bonus, oh god! I have to plan carefully how to maximize this amazing weekend mission!

 

This is indeed, as good as it gets.

Wouldn't be the first time.

 

I still remember that back in the first ARP collaboration, the final mission was to grant 5000 free XP upon completion, yet it actually rewarded players with 5000x free XP (which amounted to a damn sight more free XP than a comparatively measly 5000, I think I saw screenshots of something approaching a million free XP somewhere (which wouldn't be hard to believe since that only requires 200 free XP before modifiers). Of course that was fixed reeeeaaaal fast with a hotpatch after people (and WG) found out.

 

Let's see how long it takes for WG to adress this issue ... I'd say a damn sight slower since it benefits them.

 

 

Oh, tagged @MrConway, @Tuccy and @Crysantos for exposure.

WG running full speed against the wall. A classic.

How is it that WG always manages to screw up?

Lol...in that case, this isn't even a typo...that seems to have actually been their intentions then to actually award 250% exp. Either their mission implementer was drunk, or they changed their mind... Let's hope they'll change it. And perhaps add an extra day to it, now that some of us may have used at least one set of special flags for this mission (although for some poor reason, I chose not to apply them for this specific round, only a previous one where I didn't make the top 3 count).

Lol dont think so. Dont even think they can (or want) to modify a mission that is already in progress on the live server. I doubt they have ever done that.

 

What we can expect: "Oh this was a mistake on the newspost. The ingame mission is correct. We did not mean to mislead anyone, we are sorry and will try to improve in the future."

They can and did as I had noted in my comment.

Sure, when its a issue that heavily benefits the players and maybe even costs (direct or indirectly) WG money... they are very fast to hotfix stuff.

 

Some time ago we had the "Fleur de Lie" (or whatever) camo for the Dunkerque, the nice one in black with the silver flower. There was a mission associated with that, and people who already

owned either Dunkerque or the camo received doubloons. That was fixed within 1 day by WG in a micropatch, so people would then receive silver credits for the duplicate camo.

 

This here tho? Nothing will be fixed. Especially not hotfixed.

Exactly this, "we are sorry, we are trying to improve communication".

As it has been their go to "free out of jail" card for years.

On one hand they keep being inaccurate with this (US cruiser slots), on the other hand: free stuff, and WoWS is really quite generous compared to WoT. 

Its additional XP so hey. 

I agree that 250% would be nicer though

It does say "250 XP" on the RU site. So most likely this error was made when it was translated from the RU team (who probably created the mission) to the english speaking team (NA?).

 

But i wouldnt even call this a translation error. They added a % sign where there wasnt one before. And its also not a typo.

 

Or maybe this mission was created by the "new unified NA/EU team" (or whoever that is now), they made the mistake themself. But the RU team actually noticed the difference between

briefing and ingame mission, fixed the briefing and published it. Possible, but i think the other scenario is more likely.

They have already chosen the "easy" way out and fixed it to 250 xp in all languages.

 

The name "as good as it gets" makes we wonder though, if the mistake was actually made ingame and not in the announcement.

 

Edit: On the other hand, that bonus would be quite hefty for a normal weekend.

Then, to be realistic, the "bonus" is laughable...

Individually, maybe. But it adds up if you can keep it up.

So they "fixed" it. But so far nobody from WG can be bothered to comment on this?

 

But actually, why even do that. We already know what that statement would be.

I must say - when I found this patch I thought that there are two possibilities

1. Wow, there was supposed to be a great mission but they f*cked it up on implementation

or

2. It was probably meant to be 250 freeXP but they f*cked it up both on implementation and website

 

That's how laughable 250 XP is. Really, it wouldn't be much of a bonus even if the requirement was "be in top 10" (just enough to avoid rewarding AFKers).

 

I guess this is as good as it gets, though...
