The old “pandemic era” events need to come to a close

It’s not only me, but many people who are getting sick and tired of these events, as the set time is too small for people who have a life outside of gaming. Other issues mostly include the large amount of 40k mission score, which, unless averaging 2500 per match, roughly 20 minutes per match, it takes 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete 25% of this, considering 2500 is usually a rarity unless you play this game professionally, or in other words, it would take 2 hours and 40 minutes of someone’s day, two days in a row. People don’t have this kind of time like they did in 2019/2020, and Gaijin needs to understand that, and maybe it’s rash of me to say this, but they need to get their head in the right place instead of just trying to cash grab. TEC made a video about this that goes a bit more in depth on this topic, and might help some understand it a bit better than I can help. It truly is a change we need to see, and the only way to see it is through a push from the community.

You can’t pay 35 bucks for a vehicle but you would be ready to spend 2 hours every 1-2 days for the next 20 days?

F2P man. Some people don’t have money to spend or want to spend money. What’s the point in paying for something when I can get it free?

I am genuinely fearing the day when there is 2 or even 3 vehicles I want from an event. So far I’ve been lucky and there has only been 1 and I really really fear having a crafting event again with something I want… The Buc S1 nearly killed me

Yeah, and that’s the thing, crafting events are horrible, those you truely have to buy out in my opinion, I’m glad I just collect Swedish things, the Patria CT-CV 105 from summer event was a horrible grind, I had to buy two to even get it, at least now I don’t want anything but the J-9, everything else seems too far out of reach to even fathom getting. They truely would require you to stay up after your work or school to do them, and then you’ve got no energy for the next day.

Well go get it free then. If its so easy that no one sees point in paying for these vehicles then the events are pointless for gaijin because it wont generate revenue. Now the events are balanced, those who truly want these vehicles will either spend the work to generate these vehicles or pay for them which is fair.
Its a cool eco system where other half works and other half pays. If it was so easy that there was no point paying, the event would not exist. No reason to give vehicles for free. Gaijin needs to pay for their employees and servers too.

I think 26 million USD is plenty to pay their workers, even great bonuses, and more than enough to keep a server running, especially if they own most of the software. (≈2.3 bil руб for better understanding and call me crazy (am an American anyway) but from the looks of their goods and prices on their market (locally Russian stores and shops) their economy is in a fairly decent place, 1lbs loaf of bread costs 42 руб, while a 1lbs loaf in America costs around 4.00 w/o tax, (42 руб is .46 American USD (cents) or in other words, their food costs around 400% less than USA) wow, right, who knew they’d learn about the Russian economy today?)

You’re ignoring the fact that these events have to be profitable for gaijin. This game is also a business, it is meant to be fun and profit, not a charity. Other half people work, other half of people buy. And it works.

And that 26 million is generated from events like this and premium vehicles and other stuff. The events are a great way for gaijin to increase their profit so they can increase their business, hire more employees and make the game even better.

This isn’t a charity. Play up.

I see you missed my point.
A well run business with a quality product that doesn’t abuse its customers doesn’t have to worry about profit.

What does the US/RU exchange rate and the BMI have to do with a multinational software company?

Based in russia. My point is, they make more than enough money in a year to probably take a small cut from their very meager amount of yearly income. UNRELATED Using a little bit of math and an infinite amount of available bread, they could probably end world hunger in a year with 26mil.

It’s not abuse to make a working eco system instead of giving every vehicle for so low effort that no one sees paying as desirable. The effort should take enough effort so that others see it as desirable to pay while others see it as desirable to play. Not just the one or other.

Gaijin is not based in Russia.
Gaijin not making its events so annoying exploitative does not mean it would lose revenue.
I think the going figure for ending world hunger is $5.7B according to the UN and Elon Musk.

Wow, you’ve got it bad…

Gaijin was indeed based in Russia for 10 years before moving to a different country.

yeah please get rid of them they’re horrible lmao
