Well, checking again, Ive now gotten 1 token (and 1 yellow star if thats relevant;-))
Seemingly I either missed it last time I wrote, or I miscounted (then or now) as I still get 14 droppable games when I go through my list.
Games of varying sizes including a few 8-12 player games.
Looks like just my type of event and I really look forward to playing it. - But I am left with the question - is it meant to be this hard to get in?
The drop rate may need to be tweaked. TIme will tell.
(Incidentally, BW wrote back to remind everyone that private games, tournament and clan games, and bot games don't drop. Your best bet is to win games with lots of people. The more opponents you beat the better your chance. I think Doom already mentioned that. It's consistent with my observation that high-level stars generally come from 10-, 11-, and 12-player games.)
Now, back to the difficulty level. To some degree, yes. Remember that this event is to last four years. We envision the typical player joining maybe 3 or 4 tournaments of the 1-token level every month, and maybe 1 or 2 of the larger tournaments that will cost more that one token. (Anything from 2 to 15, I think.)
You're not going to stop playing your clan games, and your regular tournaments, and the monthly challenges, and invites from your friends, etc., etc., etc., so you probably won't want your War-related game load to account for more that 20 games or so at any given time. At least, that's our thinking.
So, yeah, if you get a token maybe two or three times a week, that should be plenty. Of course, there will be the maniacs who will set out to gain 51,575 of them, and that's okay too...
