Dude it's too late. The servers are down because they are implementing the new patch. when servers are up again it will be the new patch.

You are too late

Servers are down for the update, which will go live as soon as the servers are back up.

 

Sorry Mate

When a new patch is coming. The server always go down way sooner then the server reset. As they can get the game up again earlier, vs at 2 PM like before. So I hate to say it, but you missed the train.

I would probably be pissed too if I thought I had more time, could just free xp right now, but decided to save as much as I could... then the server dies.

Wait so the timer for the new tank to be released is 6 hours wrong? holy hell ....

 

Literally spent time and money to make sure i got it and its just sitting there needing an hour of playtime.

 

Really do not understand what the timer was for at all now.

You are a member since 2011 and you still don't know that the servers go down earlier during patch days? I kind don't feel sorry for you anymore.

But don't worry. This tank is a piece of crap.

So now that the servers are offline for the update, we have all lost the 4 or so hours as advertised to get the tank unlocked. I am sure that I am not alone in feeling a little cheated by this as the event was scheduled to end at 05:00 UTC on the 13th of December but the EU Servers will not be live until 07:00 UTC. However, as I am usually working on Patch Days, I didnt know that we would get cheated out of the time to get the tank...

No it's not wrong. The server will be up in 6 hours time again with the new TD. It's just that you got the down time wrong. They shut it down earlier so they have time to get the update going before then.

Events end then by default, as that's when the server reset each day. Patch day is always just before 1 AM or 2 AM depending on where you live. So not cheated as such, just misinformed. As the portal states different about server resets.

Now I realize why you were confused. The TOTT special was set to end as normal, i.e. 6AM 13/12.

 

One might wonder how WG can use the game (and this forum section) for announcing streams - but can't use neither for announcing server downtime, patches or ongoing issues (well, to their defense they did that stuff during the 'X4' Dunkirk special). It's pretty darn stupid if you ask me, but apparently that's the way it should be. Don't expect it to change; I reckon the staff has gotten the point by now, and there's probably someone who thinks this approach is good and dandy. Bleh.

Sorry where are you reading this? i just read the top of the tree page and i do not see anything about server down times or "portal states different about server resets". The page literally states the tank will be unlockable to the end of the countdown if they were taking the server's down then the timer should have been till 00:30am not 06:00 am that is literally not how a countdown timer works lol.

 

I have sent a ticket in to complain about the clearly wrong timer and hopefully they sort the issue out as i can think of many things where people might spend time or money for no reason based on an incorrect timer.

Don't you think you are acting a bit too spoiled and ridiculous? It was clearly announced that the tank will be removed. Instead of trying to get it as fast as possible if you so desire you try to stretch it out to the very last day.

As a side point i do now see that the patch post does have a downtime of 00:30 am however that still means the orignal timer is completely incorrect .
