    I came here to post almost exactly this. I'm level 40 with an average tank levels ranging 20 to 35 and they left repairs enabled in the event despite every possible indicator pointing to that having been a bad f'king approach to event accessibility and new player retention previously. No one has the 32 hours a day to wait on repairs for your event, dudes.

    The "Soviet Special's" irritates me as well. RNG fuckery aside, it's description is too damn vague. Is it a 40% chance of a 5 star tank and a 0.05% chance of a PT-76? Who knows!

    40% chance of 5* with only the 3 listed tanks in that 5* group. So if you want a specific one, that's a 40/3 = 13.33% chance of her

    Repairs enabled is annoying but the alternative is using oil due to the fact you could otherwise spam until you clear. PoC approach would work I suppose, but events are part special, part money-maker for them, and if you can't clear tile 8 every day, you'll have to buy at least once in all likelihood. PoC approach would also conflict with PoC itself, along with grinding for the Jingle Bells. It's annoying, but not as bad as it could be (like no RNG in shop like Thanksgiving, the enemies aren't totally OP like in Halloween)

    Tile 8 has a special boss and while I cleared tile 7 without losses, lost 8 tanks in tile 8 (level 50 commander, all but 1 tank in the 33-43 range and all 5*s). Expect a serious step up from tile 7 people

  3. Patch notes: http://armorblitz.com/2017/12/decemb...ristmas-event/

    About H scenes
    – Katyusha, Katyusha 5-star, Artillery (Wholesome Story, no R-18 content)
    – Polina, ASU-57 5-star, Tank Destroyer (NO RELATIONSHIP STORY, SORRY SMOL)
    – Eliza, PT-76 5-star, Light Tank
    – Ulyana, Object 279 5-star, Heavy
    – Irina, KV-8 4-star, Heavy (flamethrower)
    Now about event:

    - tiles levels same as before: first - LVL-5, last - LVL+5;
    - cleared all tiles, except last cane; went ok for the first time run;
    - tile 8 is much harder that others: it has new event boss, lots turrets and OP tanks (Reavers, Wraiths, Myrmidons);

    Not sure if i'm gonna spend cores, 2k seems too much like wft it was 1500 for T-100 iirc, and i already have Minnie; probably gonna take PT...

    Guys, the devs have done a lot better on this event than either of the previous ones. The event map is only 16 battles total compared to 40 for the last one and a crapton of waiting for repairs for the first one (forgot how many, think it was also 40, but it was the waiting on repairs that bugged me the most).

    If you can finish seven event tiles on each path, the remaining bells can be farmed on the Nethercold Sea tile for 7992 oil per day. I use that as an example because that's my go-to tile for farming quick wins without the possibility of losing any tanks. Even if you haven't finished the last oil tile, anyone who has reached Nethercold has a potential 15,000 oil production per 24-hour period, not including scouting rewards, so that's almost twice as much as you need. Obviously, people are still going to spend oil on PoC and invasion tiles, but unless you're really low level, with the greater bells per oil on invasion tiles and the lower bells per oil on PoC those kind of cancel each other out. (Can't give exact figures on that because invasion tiles are tied to your level and PoC is tied to your individual performance.) Since the event started, I did my invasion tiles, lvls 50/52 on PoC (that still seems weird...the big number says 25/26, but I suppose I'm still the odd one out), and farmed Nethercold and it's going to put me way over the 4629 I need for seven event tiles. Who knows, I may even be able to finish eight event tiles...I'll give it a try after I burn off more oil. So it'll be eminently reasonable to get both bags completed without spending cores. This is how an event should work...if you're good enough and put in the work, you shouldn't have to pay cash.

    About the 2K cores for the extra tanks...even though I probably won't be able to get either, I'm not at all bothered by it. Neither one is one of 'the' event tanks, and in my opinion it's a totally optional bonus purchase. And holy shit, no more RNG fuckery!

    One major complaint, though: STOP PUTTING 'WHOLESOME' STORIES IN H-GAMES! Fuckin' Hell, devs! If you can't bring yourself to H- a potential Loli, STOP DRAWING POTENTIAL LOLIs...or at the very least leave them without stories! I'm not a Loli fan, but this is just fucking stupid.

    One minor (literally) complaint. What's up with the eerie minor key riff in the new holiday music? It's out of place with the whole cheerful sleighbell theme.

  5. Eh, so I've come here for advice. It appears that I've been reckless in my game. I can't really do the events anymore since my 2 platoons are so much lower in level than my (commander level?). Either way I can only do the first battle with no losses and I can complete the 2nd but I'll lose a fair number of tanks.

    Ever since I had difficulties with the thanksgiving missions I started only using my main platoon but at this rate with me adding better tanks to it over time(getting 4 or 5 stars). It's just getting to the point that I wonder if I will even be able to beat the 1st mission of the next event.

    I felt like I was being smart by pushing as far as I could and letting damage tanks recover and using my 2nd platoon. Now I feel like an utter fool for doing it.

    Yeah, using a second platoon is going to make your commander level gap huge. We've been talking about this since the first event...shame you weren't here for all of that.

    Since the event tiles only give 100 XP each no matter how high your commander level is, what you can do is use only your highest level tanks from both platoons for event battles and you won't be missing out on very much XP for those newer, 'better' but lower leveled tanks. Then swap them back in when you do lower risk maps that give better XP. This probably won't fix the problem entirely, but it will let you advance farther than just slamming those newer tanks into the grinder.

    Alternatively, you can just try to minimize your commander's progression for the duration of the event. Limit yourself to PoC, event tiles, and get your daily missions done on Angora. MAYBE do invasion tiles if you're not too close to another commander level. You won't get the whole prize, but if you're in a bad enough position that you're worried about getting ANY of the event tanks, this might be the way to go. Judgment call on your part, here.

    Update: Tile 8 is doable on the ornament path, but for me tile 8 on the cane path is too hard. So I'll need a very easy 3429 jingle bells per day to make up for the one cane tile I can't do. My current haul is 5027 jingle bells.

    Both are doable for me, but had to re-roll the whole map once (refresh the browser page) due to some really really F* up RnG spawn on enemy side.
    Of course, both my "4-5" whatever, were 4*. I dont know the odds on these event random characters/emblems, but I doubt its 50/50. Never got a 5* out of it so far. Will see after this event is done and over with, if there will be one finally or not.

    Another marked improvement is that there is now 6 reward tiers instead of 3-4 tiers.
    Gives a more steady reward stream and does away with the worst of the hello I am a 80-100k gap.

    The max is now 50k which is still a lot, but at least has a time horizont below a week to bridge.

    Gave cane 8 another shot and squeaked through with all but 3 tanks down. I guess it really is just the luck of the initial enemy deployment. I can handle the Wraths/Myrmidons once I can get my deathball established and those annoying snowmen are down.
