Project "Overpowered" - Crafting Event Discussion


Best answer

Dear players. From September the 24th we have faced prolonged DDoS attacks on our servers. As a result, some of you may experience problems with the availability of the game and other game services. We are aware of this problem, our specialists are promptly switching the load to other data centres to stabilise the situation.

 

We want what's happening to have minimal impact on your gaming experience during our Events, so:

 

1) We will be increasing the number of Crates with Material and Pieces of Tape tasks for project “Overpowered” that will be available after October 3rd (12:00 noon GMT). We will update you with the details in the event news during the week.

 

2) Twitch Drops event participants who clicked the "Get" button in their Drops inventory will receive their earned rewards during the week.

 

3) Once the situation stabilises, we will extend all active premium accounts. We will inform you about this in another news item.

 

We will keep you informed.

Project "Overpowered" Discussion

 

I made this thread to discuss the upcoming crafting event. 

 

So far, we've got the:

 

  • Po-2M seaplane
  • Jaguar E (training variant of the Jaguar A)
  • CCVL light tank (USA)
  • German Ostfriesland BB

 

All the rewards seem interesting especially the Po-2M in my opinion! I just wish we got the Jaguar M instead of the Jaguar E, it's more unique.

Not too sure about ships and planes etc, but the purpose of the US CCVL event light tank will most likely be overlapping in at least 1 field with the already existing M1128, AGS and XM8 that is present in the US ground force tech tree. Would love it if similar light tanks are introduced in future events but maybe on nations that are receiving less love? :p:

 

Furthermore, would be really nice if there is a future event that is dedicated to provide some rare/unusual WW2 vehicles as well. Other BR ranges need equal amount of dedication as well. :good:

No dude, the whole community needs this. Blocking these vehicles by making them Event rewards is useless. The XM-8 is doing nothing for me because I did not get it back then and now it is too expensive. So to everyone who missed out, there is still a lack of those vehicles.

 

Gaijin should add vehicles to the benefit of everyone, not just some event no-lifers.

Well, there will always be players missing out on vehicles, for example, the most frequent season pass events. For every season pass that players do not participate, he/she is going to loss access to 3 vehicles.

 

Theoretically the whole community needs this, but technically it is not possible, as there will always be new players joining the game that is going to miss out of older vehicles. Having an event in the future dedicated to WW2 vehicles won't hurt too much, as past events have almost always been dedicated to modern vehicles for the prime reward.

Of course it is possible, this is a manmade game. Gaijin added flying ponies once for crying out loud. This toxic vehicle elitism needs to stop.

There is no reason whatsoever for this to be necessary. It is just like this because of the human urge to dominate each other, as well as human pride and arrogance.

Well, if vehicles are not going to be on event rewards like you said, I can't see if there is anything that can take its place in event anymore. You have to be aware of that there are a lot of players who grind out these event vehicles to support their premium time, packs, golden eagles, etc (not me though, but I do know a lot do). This has been part of War Thunder culture for quite some time.

 

Anyways, not just War Thunder itself, in just about any other major games out there, there will always things to be missed as a new player. Time-limited stuff was, is and will always be a part of game culture, anywhere.

pretty sure there's gonna be at least one low tier ground vehicle.

my guesses:

m43/75 semovente bersaglieri

pz. 38t NA

wancheng 2 (chafee+m113 abomation)

pzkv IV

GAZ-75

 

 

Maybe the low tier tank we might see will be from a nation that's not in the game yet.

Another event vehicle with insane powercreep!!! How are jets like the F-14, Mirage 2000, and MiG-23 supposed to compete with ANOTHER Po-2?! Enough of these broken rewards that are 2 overpowered!

 

For real though I’m loving where they’re going with this sort of a vehicle reward. Now I’ve got my fingers crossed for a TB-3M (or return of the existing one in warbonds or something) ;D. Would love to add such a powerful bomber to an overpowered Po-2 lineup.

With the "Project: Overpowered" name, I think it would be a very good time to add the Bob Semple, if only to compliment the new Po-2 . . . . lol
