Because the Wintery garage has been removed, the means of claiming your rewards also changed:

As kamarád SuedKAT pointed out, the means is as following:

Probably me being totally thick, but now holiday ops are over, and garage has returned to normal, I can't see any means of getting to the rewards screen to claim the discounted tanks and assign female crew. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

 

When you login you'll get a small notification, you can also find it in the notification center, you know the little button at the bottom right.

 

 

Old Stuff:

Okay, plenty of people apparently have some issue claiming them, so let's help them out:

First of all, be in your garage. You can't claim the rewards while in battle.

Just click on either your christmas tree or the big snowflake at the top to go to the screen where you can decorate your tree, house, snowman and yard.

You'll then see a button next to your festive level saying "List of Rewards". You click this:

Which brings you to a nice overview screen showing all the rewards for all the different levels of festive atmosphere.

Along with buttons for the discounts and girls you've so far unlocked:

 

And because someone asked a question about it; how to select your discount/girl:

First of all, on the rewards screen, click on "Select" for the tier of vehicle you want the discount for, which brings up the following pop-up with a list of vehicles (I'd suggest using the filters for nation and vehicle class to find the one you're looking for):

NOTE: You do not need to have the vehicle researched to apply the discount!

For girls it follows suit to click the "Recruit" Button underneath her name instead. Which brings up the usual pop-up allowing you to select the nation, class, qualification, and exact vehicle you want her for (all Researched and Premium vehicles should be possible):

After which she should be sitting in your barracks, hopefully.

I wonder if we have to claim the girls during the event - or will they be reserved to later recruitment?

 

Could @Admins answer?

According to this news article, you can claim both the discounts and the girls until mid-march:

https://worldoftanks...ops-2018-guide/

Wargaming.net

 Important Note: Discounts can be used for absolutely any researchable vehicle of the specified tier (crates provide discounts for a specific tier each) and aren’t limited in time. Once you pick a tank you’ll be buying with it, it’s valid until you purchase it. Grab it right away or in a year—you’re still getting that sweet amount off the price. The time for picking a tank expires mid-March, though. So don’t put it off for too long! The same applies to your new Crew members: make sure to recruit them before mid-March 2018. We’ll share the exact date later, so stay tuned.

I presume, mebbe wrongly, that recruiting the ladies into barracks is sufficient then?

I'd leave the ladies where they are until you are sure where you want to assign them. They'll be quite happy living in limbo until march.

"Once you pick a tank you’ll be buying with it, it’s valid until you purchase it."


 

So how do you "pick" the tank you want the discount on?  Can you tag it or something?

Click the bit showing the ¿diamond? shard thingy with the number next to it, then select the decorations you want to hammer, click the button, and presto; itsy-bitsy tiny little shards.

Or on the christmas tree screen, click on the "Craft" button, and then on "Get Shards Hammer" in the lower-right part of the Holidron Decorider.

Also bump to keep it on first page.

That reminds me, I need to look up what the most expensive tier II, III, IV and V tanks are then buy them and sell for the easy credits.

Knowing how generous WG are, my suspicion is you will be able to sell them for exactly the same amount that you paid for them.

Just a thought...

Just made 222500 credits by buying an O-I Experimental and selling it again.

 

Only gone to tier 5 so far.  I might find a use for the tier 6 yet and I've picked candidates for 8 and 9.

 

Crafting seems a lot better this year, no more gathering 84 million tier 1 decorations so you can craft them into tier 2 and those into 3 and so on.

Nobody is happy there!

That's surprisingly generous of them!

I take it all back, maybe they have actually got a touch of Christmas Spirit?:medal:
