Hello everyone, Wargaming really did it this time with the Winter Mode. Behold the latest major fail from the production that brought you the OP SU-76I and the WT E-100! Basically, when the Winter Mode was announced on RU server, it came with an interesting text: It says: “…apart from the missions listed above, you will be able to complete also a bunch of hidden missions…” Hidden missions. Transparency all the way! But wait, it gets better. It turned out that these hidden missions incorrectly interacted with the open ones, specifically in multiplying the XP and crew XP modificator. The result was that the Winter Mode awarded like 100k crew XP and regular XP in a few missions and Yuri Pasholok on his blog reports that in 3,5 hours of playing, he managed to accumulate 230k XP. Another player reports average 3200 XP per battle each five minutes, for everybody (for a loss, it was 2,6k XP). This unintended fail lasted until cca 14:00 CET today, by which point some players (since yesterday) managed to accumulate absolutely ridiculous amounts of XP (hundreds of thousands, even millions), including multi-perk crews. Around that time, WG staff removed some of the hidding missions, greatly reducing the XP and crew XP income, creating massive butthurt. The standard reply was “it’s a fun mode, have fun” and stuff like that. Wargaming as usual. If they have to fuck up on the side of players like that… why can’t they fuck up like that on EU server? :( We’ll get the “detuned” version. Also, hidden missions mechanism, that’s going to go SO well… *tinfoil hat on* – or maybe it was…. intentional? After all, all that XP will need to be converted to be of any use…
