Maybe you didn't read the full list:

 

"We‘re giving away two 10-skill-point Commander Dashas (one Italian and one British): one for the top XP earner in Random Battles for Italian Tier V–X ships, and the other for the top XP earner for British ships. Only XP accrued during the mission time frame will be counted, and you must also complete the mission!"

 

The emphasis is from the article itself.

Don't rule out the 4 camo lol........think how many battles you can have how much awesome fun how much....ohhh wait...its only 4. WG used to be very generous, now not so much, Italian crates give you 1 flag and this one 2 camo...yet they want you to stump up 200 euro for a tech tree Yammy skin. Most relationships are based on give and take...the take massively outweighs the give these days.

Well, for this one yes, we decided to put random battles as condition there. Probably it was made in order to prevent botting programs, as we have sentence there: All participants are subject to checks for illegal modifications / bot programs.

But the main rewards during this event was the Italian cruiser, which everybody, also coop players could get, while getting Regia Marina and Union Jack camos.

So does that mean that you can't check for bots in Co-op (due to all the bots that are already there presumably)? If so, that might make things difficult with the Amazon voucher recruitment drive, given that as far as I can tell there are no restrictions on game mode for that; there certainly weren't on the recruits-for-doubloons drive last year and the more recent recruits-for-cash drive on the NA server.

On the subject of the cruiser prize, I notice there are ten of them listed for giveaway. Will that number be added to for the more people that complete the mission, like with a previous Australia Day event with Perth (I think it was last year's, I seem to recall this year the rewards were a lot less generous)? Roughly how many people are you anticipating those ten cruisers being shared between, out of interest?

 

Also was there a particular reason to choose a cruiser that's also on the current event container list, leading to a stronger possibility of people already having it, rather than another Italian premium ship that's not on the list? Duca d'Aosta seems like an obvious choice as it's apparently not been involved in the Italian Battleships events so far.

We can and we are checking all kinds of modes in our game, so also coop.

Unfortunately I can't show you, how many players joined this event.

Prizepool of those events can really vary from each other. Probably now it is higher because Duca is included in the ongoing Italian Arc.

So it's probably more players than the Perth event, but with less ships up for grabs?

No Dashas for co-op entries, unfortunately, as we wanted to have that for Random battles participation.

 

Well, as you can see, it can vary in the total prizepool. I had to check how many Perths were given, as I forgot that number. It was 20 indeed. But Abruzzi is tier VII, so more valuable ship. And well, we also want to have those numbers rounded.

Why? As it's apparently not for purposes of bot checking. Don't Randoms give enough extra rewards already?

So just for reference, are T7 premiums considered to be twice as valuable (rounding off) as T6 ones? If so then presumably you could have given away more d'Aostas than Abruzzis to give players twice as much chance of winning something.

Why? Well, we provided options to get something for everybody and decided to place one side reward to random battles only, as it is our most played game mode.

 

They are not twice as valuable, but are just more valuable than tier VI, so this time we decided to giveaway "just" 10. With every single event we can decide differently.

Still better 10 Abruzzis than nothing, right?

If it's the most-played mode, surely people don't need more encouragement to play it. Isn't it about time some of the other modes (particularly PvE) got some support as well? They're part of the game too, after all.

Actually out of interest I looked up the costs of Perth and Abruzzi in the premium shop, if you round up the first is pretty much half the cost of the second. I was surprised at the difference given that there's only a tier difference and they're both light cruisers.

Not for all the players who don't win; for them it would be exactly the same as nothing. I realise not everyone can be a winner (or else it undermines the point of a prize draw), but as I mentioned, this event seems stingier than previous ones in a similar vein; it's disappointing that people are getting less now for the same amount of effort. Not that I would realistically expect that trend to change anytime soon of course.
