Only 25 hours gametime needed within a week to gain a free T8 unit for life!

 

[150 battles@10mins (mean gametime+mm delay)] as a conservative calculation.

 

Only 10 hrs dedication required for a 1/2 price discount... I genuinely cannot decide if this is a good mission or not! :amazed:

 

I stand corrected, you need all 3x tokens one from each faction, so multiply the above guesstimation by x3 :confused:  (~75 hrs for a free dog!)

There is no ingame counter how many games are missing for the goal of 150 games each in the campaign?   Where will i find the gold faction Token ?

 

If I take part of event I keep records of that myself. Pencil and paper work always.

Units need to be tier V+, and I think you can't play vs AI past tier III. I'm not certain though, I have never played against AI still :P

Well said!

Your calculation now seems to be fairly accurate.

 

Well, if you see it as a 75 hour-chore with commanders/units/factions not to your liking to get the premium unit, you better work instead, buy it, keep the rest of the money and be done with it :P

 

But if you play like me, ~100 games per week and have only been playing for a month, this is a great opportunity to play a little more and be rewarded for it. I also get to see new commanders and units, learn the game and rack up the 400 wins for the Immortals Reward Program!

 

TL;DR: It all depends on what how much you are playing. If you play 30 games per week this is an impossible task, if you already play 150+ you can just get free stuff!

I agree with you, I only wonder if it will be open beta.

I've elaborated a bit in the previous page, scroll through if you're not bored mate!

 

Long story short from my previous replies:

- Rewards that don't carry on such as Io Saturnalia event explicitly stated they won't carry over. (Source: Io Saturnalia event)

- This is a premium unit from the premium shop, and supposedly you buy it regardless of 25%, 50% or 100% discount. Anything you buy states will be applied again after each wipe. (Source: Premium Store)

- 450 total battles with at least 150/week with two commanders of each faction at tier V+ is a lot of work. The CBT is probably at its final stages, so the reward should carry over. (Source: None, just my own reasoning)

This roman only event makes this game so damn boring. Almoust every match is 80% of team just Germanicus camping in testudo. There were too many Germanicus even before event but now it is just worse. :(

It's about to change! At Sunday 22:00 CET the event switches over to the Greeks. So be ready for exciting teams comprising of team damaging phalanxes and a rain of rains of arrows. Yeah... I'll get the dust of my Leonidas, we'll fight in the shade!

 

Sounds like your team mates are boring indeed! RUSH B like a true man! So you can die and play your Scipio cav. :P

I totally agree, we all have differing priorities.  I would like the dog unit too but wish the hours required were a little more attainable for the average player, as it has been with most TWA promo's during alpha/CB.  :unsure:

 

Edit:  The afk's are also very high this week I see!

That pack also has 5k gold (~20 euro) plus the doggies. Do you think we'll get rewarded the doggies only or get the discount for that pack? If we get the pack it would be pretty awesome! But I still think we'll somehow receive only the prem unit, in which case I don't complain about either.

I assume you put the discount token code on the portal against the doggy pack at checkout, so i'll guess the lot including the gold :hiding: but who knows?
