Any reason why the VK 45.03 is not on discount like the other T7 tanks?

It's new, new tanks are never discounted.

I can be critical quite often, but in this case I'm going to commend WG for this special, but I'll also make a small suggestion to make it even better, and I hope you'll consider it either for this event or future events.

 

With the influx of all the VK 45.03 I bet a lot of the T7 tanks see this new tank pop into their games. Having an event like this encourages people to play their T7 tanks and allows people to see a good mix of T7 tanks instead of mostly the new VK. This is good for both the new proud VK owners and the people that don't have the tank. 

 

However, this event is unfortunately set up to reward the best players, and sadly the chance of me playing a top 10 base XP game in the next two weeks are close to zero, even top 20 would be near impossible for me to reach. 

 

Considering that this event is probably aimed at getting more people to play various T7 tanks and not just the better players, perhaps it would be a good idea to also include prizes for people who are not as skilled as the best players. 

Allow people who have NO chance of getting a top 20 game (due to their skill level) to still have a TINY chance of winning a prize. It would barely cost you anything, while at the same time you include a much larger part of the player base to have an actual chance of winning something (no matter how small that is). The chances of winning might still be extremely low, but the difference between no chance of getting into the top 20 to having a one in 100.000 chance is astronomical and it does change the perception of the players from to be participating in an event where they have no chance of winning to be participating in an event where they do have a chance of winning something. 

 

Some quick ideas I can come up with to include players of various skill levels next to the current prizes for top base xp:

- A random player who has killed a VK 45.03 during the event will win a prize.

- A random player who has won a battle against a VK 45.03 on the enemy team during the event will win a prize (while being in top 10 xp to avoid bots). (Players can increase their chances by playing more winning battles)

- Mission: Win 20 battles with a VK 45.03 on the enemy team to be included in a random drawing for a prize.

 

 

Again, the difference between feeling that you have no chance of winning to have an actual tiny chance of winning is astronomical. I really hope WG will consider including more of their player base in events like these.

I like them, and I like them to be more welcoming and inviting to players of all skill levels.

Is that German flag decal anything special? Or is it the one by default?

First of all: the tank is meh at best.

Second of all: the price is ridiculous for a tier 7 premium tank.

And lastly: there is no goddamn reason to limit the availability of the tank to just these few days.

 

Three words from me: No sale, Hale!"

Overpriced, I was looking forward to get one, but paying 10 euros more then other tier 7 vehicles is ridiculous. 

 

Bad move, Wargaming, bad move.

So trying to re-rail the topic; where do we send our battleresult screenshots or replays?

Although I doubt I stand a chance of winning.

(sigh)

Why is it so hard to read the article before asking questions? Everything you need to know is right there.

 

You don't send anything, anywhere. You play the game like normal and do your best. The winner will be determined by Wargaming based on battle result data straight from the game servers.

So for the " VK 45.03 - Weltmeister Bundle", the BIA on the included crew is a "first" skill/perk, and not a "zero" skill as on the Berlin tanks?
