I 'm so relieved that the prizes include T-34-3s instead of Type59s 'cause that's become a bit boring...

Ofc I signed up but I don't know how I'm gonna win 25 battles in chinese tanks when I don't even play 25 battles in them. That's just me though.

 

Now, lets take a moment to reflect on these poor chinese meds which WG has shat on from the start and still doesn't think they need something better after 3 years...

Is the type 59 allowed in the contest?

I have to ask due to the usual exclusions on using the type 59 for contests like these. 

 

You can play any Chinese vehicle as long as it's Tier IV or above. Premiums included.

Or Random.

 

Or will the Team Pick "Manually" from all valid entries.

For future contests please use an ingame mission so we can keep track of the win number.

100 rewards that offer you T W O personal reserves, and that's if you are a lucky one to be chosen from tens/hundreds of thousand of players taking part?  I mean WOW, that's not even close to the previous Tripoli event we just had.

...not to even mention you gotta win 25 battles in horrible Chinese tanks equipped with super accurate Chinese cannons...

 

Such promo is a slap in the face by WG, better not to organize anything if you don't have an actual idea!

It is totally extra stuff that you can choose to opt-in or opt-out. If you do not like it is not good enough, just ignore it and move on.

OK, I signed up.
Most swedish kills, it's my bet for their secret of choosing the winners.
Now let me see why I moved the girls from WZ-131 to WZ-132...

I have the T-34-3 and it is sooo good.

 

And it will be sooo much better once they implement their brilliant idea of accuracy nerf.

Well don't mean to argue about that here but my point was this: if that is the major promotion to hit the front page or game loader then at least make it something exciting and not throw a mangy five dolla bill on the nightstand after having some fun with us and making us do what they want...

We will pick winners only among those who sign-up. I wish it was millions :) Actually your odds to get one of the prizes are bigger than odds of losing/winning 7 battles in a row. Judging by forum threads where players complain about losing streaks, I'd say that's pretty good :B

 

So it is like a raffle. Not a real contest per say where you need to rank higher to get the honey.

Got it.

Hope my wz132 will have Lady luck shine on it.

Not a bad special, though I would find it nicer if every player who takes part would at least receive a guaranteed consolation prize ... nothing big, just a token, really.

 

Still, I will give it a go because I need to grind credits and I don't mind playing my Chinese premiums anyway. Don't really expect to win anything, though. Would be a first if I did.

The power of math!!

 

0.5 ^ 7 = 0.78% chance for each

 

, so 1.56% chance of getting a 7 game long winning or losing streak in any set of 7 games one of 113 prizes, of which only 13 are attractive. I already have personal reserves coming out the wazoo and am reticent to use them since they are associated with losing streaks in my lizard brain. 

 

13/113 = 11.5%

 

and

 

11.5% x 0.78% = 0.0897% 

 

which is

 

100/0.0897 = 111,482

 

so, eh, better than one in 100k? For this WG wants my username and email? - which they already have?

 

Why isn't this an in game mission? Why the un-necessary hurdle of forcing the player to go to the website? what is Hootsuite and will they get my email address?
