Hello to everyone. I would like to state before i start the actual post that i strongly agree with the purpose and goal of this, but disagree with the rewards you are given..

 

Now, wargaming just posted a charity event on their main website. A very noble cause with all proceeds going to charity. BUT, for participating in this charity you have a chance at winning 2 tanks. 1 for each charity entry. The OBJ 252U (nonskinned defender) and....get ready...the SU-76i. Atm the SU is at about 235 euro. 235 euro??? for the most OP unbalanced tier 3 besides the Pz 2j? I wonder how many people will be bidding for it. What do you guys thing about this give-to-charity-receive-digital-rewards thing? I think it borders really close to gambling. Even if it is for charity.

SU-76i has less DPM and pen then a Pak40, and no view range and no HP. As it usually dies in 2 hits as the rear and side is paper. Even tho the reason for it's hasty removal was due to the gun according to WG. And it don't really have armor either.  It's just that auto aim goes for the mantle that is fairly strong vs most guns. And if you face mostly stock tier III's. It will bounce lots ofc. The new T29 more or less pens it with ease anywhere to name one. It has the Matilda IV gun, so 86 pen that's not to bad.

 

Most thought the II J was worth 99 Euro. But I can 100% say the SU-76i is not worth 200+ euro. It's not that good. As lots of new guns on tier III have been added since then, that more or less rapes it in 2 seconds. The Chinese TD or the T29 are some of them.

Hilarious. Good luck to Wg. Good Luck to the charities. But any player buying either of those two for such silly sums, either (a) has money to burn, or (b) really likes one of the charities.

SU-76I was, for a while, totally OP - more because you're clubbing seals with DPM and high skilled crew than any inherent imbalance in the tank.

 

However, the T-29 freebie everyone got? Goes right through it for half HP. Oh, and with new MM you now see Tier IV in it. I played mine twice in the last few months, and it wasn't pleasant. 

 

It still rips IIJs a new one though.

 

Would pay £4 for it (which is what it cost on release), otherwise don't bother.

It is not gambling, it is an auction so you only pay if you are the winning bidder.

 

While the SU-76i is for sure not the most balanced tank, it is not so game-breaking that selling one for charity is going to have any kind of negative influence :)

Then I apologise for the insinuation.

Would 'like' but I'm out of Positives - have a good old fashioned +1:)

 

 

Whilst we are on the subject - can we have more Daily Positive Votes please? :)

This is nuts, people are whining about game being broken, OP armor and gold ammo? This is the perfect example of all those problems and people are willing to pay hundreds of euro's for a [edited]defender?

 

It's not wargaming destroying World of Tanks, I'ts the retarded community :facepalm:

Can i ask you who was the genius that though making this auction on a [editedsite was a good idea? 

Please tell me that you personally understand what it says on that site. Since when poland language has became a international spoken one?

It was hard to do it on e-bay or any other big bidding site that has multiple languages supported and is well known in all world?

Seeing that it is a Polish charity, being on a Polish auction site makes sense. 

 

Follow my link above for the English version of the site or use Google translate. Still don't like it? Then don't bid, quite simple.

Before I played World of Tanks, I could speak English and German.

 

33k games later, and I can now swear and question people's parentage, IQ, and cognitive abilities in every European language

 Are you sure ?.

the news page says 100% of PROFITS goes to charity if costs are £999 and the auction only brings £1000, then there's not much going to charity

 

So bidding is starting at £211.

It's a Polish charity. Allegro auction site is one of the sponsors and in addition auctions a whole lot of different items donated specifically to be auctioned for this charity.

 

Funds raised by WOŚP are spent on medical gear, this year's goal is to upgrade or replace equipment used in neonatal care.

Apart of fixing sorry state of equipment in Polish healthcare (full list of gear gifted to hospitals over their 26 years of operation is available on their page) WOŚP's other activities mostly focus on first aid trainings, their most recent project is to train all Polish the schoolchildren in first aid.

 

As you imagine, their activities mostly focus on Poland, but not exclusively. As separate project, they take part in disaster relief operations worldwide.

 

I am not sure, but I do believe this is either second or third time WG is supporting WOŚP, I certainly recall there being Type 59 auction few years back.

As I see it. if Wargamming had not donated the tanks the charity would not have benefited. This way the charity is getting much needed funds that otherwise they would have not received. No have no objection to donating money to oversees charities, however I do not donate funds online when the website / payment system do not have an English version. This is because I have never mastered another language (although some people would say I have not mastered English either ;) ).
