This kind of news is good!

 

I actually don't need all the exact information, a little bit of surprise is nice too :)

So let me get this right...

 

- We still only have 1 TotT per month, and not 2 like RU and NA...

- Everyone that havn't unlocked the tier 10 yet will get an extremely massive +50% crew xp bonus instead of an actual battle xp bonus or credits...

- The players that already have the tier 10 unlocked get access to missions that gives you x10 battle xp personal reserves while players without the tier 10 gets crew xp...

- The voting was removed, which is good, but I honestly can't tell if you removed it because players disliked it, or because you where to busy to collect the voting results...

- Each year you've made a post to explain the new setup of the current years TotT, this year you couldn't even bother to explain that it'll be the same...

- Not to mention that I sent atleast 2 messages to WG staff with suggestions on how this years TotT could be made interesting by doing missions that reward 1 of the TotT tank with permanent camo, and the messages are still not even read...

 

What annoys me the most? That I still havn't learnt to not expect anything from WG EU...

 

Great effort WG! :great: :harp: :bajan: :medal: :coin:

More likely they are still desperate to get players on the Swedish tech tree, first the Christmas crafting excercise, now the special rewards missions for Swedes and this month ToT....

Cool the heads up.

But did i miss the poll on the next  top of tree? Or did we already stopped with it?

Most specials now a days are about the new lines. Dont forget the old ones.

 

I miss the polls too. And most of that hope they still reward us with those personal reserves!

Wasent there a monthly calendar a few years back? like 3-5+ years

 

Yep, stopped working (not updated) by the start of decemeber.

Actually, many years ago the monthly calendar was great, you could click on the event and they were linked to the actual announcement + we knew in advance and in more detail of the upcoming events many weeks before (was able to play what weekend to play more and when to not play, this was obviously a bad thing for WG). Then WG EU got lazy as usual and only posted some small useless information in the event calendar, and now we have even less information, just some fancy "sneek peak".

 

WG development: Great => worse => useless

Once again Wargaming is pushing the swedish crap tanks. During Christmas you got significant rebates for them, in January there was a campaign with bonus stuff if you play the swedes and now it's Top of the Tree in February!

I must admit I am starting to wonder why I am grinding the Swedes and it's really just that I feel I should get some use out of the female crew and the male 100% crew that came with the first light tank.  But I haven't really liked any of the Swedish tanks that I've played so far.

 

However, to remain on topic, I do appreciate the English language WG people giving us notice of the month's specials.  I hope this move lasts longer than most New Year resolutions.

 

I could understand if there'll be no more voting on the TotT because it seemed that people just kept voting for the same tanks every time they had a choice.

I can not understand why the European server must have the worst deals and shipments ... The American server rewards players with tanks, camouflage and that one can imagine. Even with gold .. :(  Supposedly global online game.
Why the players have different treatment?

+1, I completely agree. WG EU have a very special talent, and that is that even if they improve something for the better, they must always include alteast something that will still make it bad and make players complain. Comparing the TotTs of 2015 and 2016 the 2016 version is indeed better, more discounts and special missions, but then of course they had to make it only once per month. Players have always asked for news in advance, getting the Sneak Peek is also an improvment, but then again, they give too little info to actually make it usefull. For instance, we know that during 4-6 february there'll be an even with the name "Nation Spotlight: Germany"... Now let's ask ourselves and WG EU this question: What's actually the important information here, the name of the event, or the contents of the event... Yes sure, we could guess/assume that there will be discounts on all German vehicle, but WG EU is not exactly know for being generous so I wouldn't expect that... So even after the sneak peek there's still a great amount of question marks, and here I was thinking that the whole purpose of it was to straighten these questionmarks out...

The classical WG answer is that NA needs to attract more players :)

 

Yes, it's a much nicer and camouflaged way of saying "Why should we give EU players anything more if they're already here and pumping money into our bums" :great:

Here's hoping for a good discount on the valentine II,or maybe even on the matilda IV,i will surely grab the valentine II since it will be on sale soon.

 

iirc Matilda BP, Valentine II and Matilda IV get a 75% discount every valentine's day thats how i got my matilda IV, its a great tank and well worth the €3 something i spend on it.

Whit the löwe and panther88 it seems plausible that the Russians will have a discount on is-6 and t-54 prototype and USA get discounts on the T-34 and superPershing
