As long as you're not going to expect any free promo codes..Last Year  they'd mysteriously "Run out" by 11am of the 1st day if you were an existing player..
But strangely were still giving cards out containing a code for a weeks premium/B2-740(f)/Gold to people who appeared never to have played at 14.00hrs.
Including a large number of very young children who were allowed to Hog the available PC's despite being obviously in breach of the companies own age restriction rules
Go to see the tanks up close whether static in the Museum or on the track buy don't expect a code for a  Type 59

I'll be there, shouldn't be too difficult to spot.

It's good to finally have a face with the review videos and British voice :)

Whilst it's definitely a shame to miss the displays it's nice to be there when it is quiet too.

The last time I went to Bovington (many years back now) was on a regular weekday in school term.  I was the only visitor there.  I was actually in one of the hangars (cold war vehicles area) and a guy walking through noticed me, stopped, and went back to turn all the lights on for me!  I'd thought it was kind of dark in there...  ;-)

Why "mysterious" ? Two separate cards- Bonus-for existing players and invite cards-for new players. At every event the Bonus cards go a hell of a lot quicker.

As for age, I am not going to get into this debate as it has been done a lot on other threads, I remind you that the PEGI rating is 7 and when you have parents/guardians with them.... The team however do their best to ensure that the machines are not monopolised and everyone gets a fair chance.

:smile:

I'm just pointing out to the hopefuls that if they go merely in the hope of gaining a tier 8 premium tank they'll be wasting their time.
.Go to enjoy the event..the chance to whine to the team about whichever of these floats your boat: An arty cap of 3/no damage critical hits/Gold ammo in game/no gold ammo half price for ages/other servers get better specials/why do our servers specials start on a Saturday/why doesn't 2nd gun work on my Churchill/Always getting attacking side in assault mode in my T95/why is Tiger so bad in game?/Why is every tank I don't have OP then nerfed when I do get it?/why don't you bring back komarin/swamps?/get rid of camponova/any map I don't like?/GIVE ME MORE MAPS...so I'm rubbish on more that I don't know how to read/ban derp guns/Dont nerf derp guns..etc etc

Problems with "quoting" so apologies for in effect double posting in same post..but rest assured the WG team never tire of our endless face to face complaints and whining..
Really and this is true ..last year I had the fun to watch while some genius spent 10 minutes of a member of WG time demanding that his .50 cal on roof of his tank should fire
so He could at least "distract" enemy tier 8's..
I actually really dont know how they put up with us
