Cool!

 

EDIT: I will vote for the one I believe will win. Is that a good thing?

Pretty good system if you ask me, but do make the missions available for the ones that already had the tank unlocked please. Not that the rewards are that great. Instead of having the tank unlocked, they would just have to stop grinding one battle before unlocking it. The annoying bit now, is that I already have 6 tanks unlocked :)

 

For this poll, I'm close to unlocking the AMX 50B, 150k left on the FV215b and I got the Maus, T54E1 and KV-4 unlocked. Already an owner of the IS-7, T110E5 and the 113. For me, there is no point in voting now, as I'd rather influence the outcome of the poll towards the end, improving my odds to get a line I can buy something from. It's nice for transparency, but hiding the results until the voting is closed, seems more fair for everyone.

 

edit: also, make sure that anyone with less 1k battles is not allowed to vote, just to avoid having tons of fake accounts created. Except for rerollers, nobody should be on tier 10 under 1k battles.

Ok, but where is that poll? No link in the portal article, no link here

Looks like you haven't opened it yet

Edit: oh w8, it pops on the portal after logging in. You should probably hint that in the article

top of the tree on EU server is already bad , and this way you're gonna make it even worst , unless the special missions was very rewarding

it will help the newbies but for those that have an abundance of tier Xs the new format is a little bit of a kick in the teeth.

Of course everyone voted for the overpowered T110E5 for next month. God dammit, Rest of this year is going to suck for us all, since there will be like 10% more T110E5's, and at least 5 in each team in every tier 10 battle. Waiting for the nerf...

Preety stupid decision to make it with vote.I can tell you by now E5, T57, IS-7 and other such tanks used in CW will win everytime.I only have the japanese heavy viable for this type of special, but i doubt it will not finish last.Maybe chinese one to be less popular.Just pick whatever you think it needs to be played often and go with it. Putting it to vote will always be a tank used in cw, because lets see the facts, this time E5 is leading and i doubt more than 10% of those that voted for it doesnt have it already , and they did it for crew xp.

Good idea, especially with one line per month. With previous system I always felt like I'm loosing another opportunity to save silver just because time was too short for ginding tier 8 to 10 or so. Now it's basically enough time to grind through entire tree ;]

These Pools, excuse me, polls and missions are nice addition too, nothing marvelous but at least nothing harmful.

So, we are talking about only 12 "top of the tree" per year... Maybe I'm crazy but it sounds really lame.

Apparently poll is different for each language version of http://worldoftanks.eu/

Intended? Can I just vote different tank on each page and have much better chance?

 

Also, Spanish version features some mysterious "114" tank.

You escaped from russian forums or what? E5 is really cool as it is now and finally we got a normal, civilized tank to fight all these russian meds efficiently :justwait:

So [edited]unfair!

 

Block Quote

Players who have voted for the vehicle that wins the poll, but have unlocked the vehicle in the past already, or when the poll was still active, will not be eligible for access to the special missions. However, they will still be able to enjoy the discounts on the respective tech line, as well as the Crew XP bonus.

 

Apart from the fact this will be abused in many ways, those of us who got the tanks earlier will remain screwed!

Great, thanks for the more incentive not to play while there is nothing special going and for researching most of the lines by now!

Old players retention and satisfaction at its best!

Remove voting, pick one from the list, then remove it from the list so it can't be picked next time, and do so until you pick all the tanks from the list...

 

Make missions available for everyone who has the tank in garage before certain date.

Now you look how a horde of bots rushes to get the tanks on discount and enjoys cool bonuses while the rest of us walk away empty handed.
