As suspected, according to discussions in other topics on this forum, players, who have been holding a Premium Shop discount coupon, did not receive the early access offer for the EVEN 90, even if they had a running premium account. I guess, poor WG people would have to live on the street if they missed out on those €5... :facepalm:

 

Evidence

Exhibit #1: Attached screenshot. My coupon would have expired today. I have been waiting for the EVEN 90, but, reading that WG will not make it available to everyone before next week, I bought some premium time using the -20% coupon => voilá, the ELC EVEN 90 offer popped up after playing one more battle.

 

Time to find out, if there's an actual correlation between owning coupons and not receiving that offer.

Has anyone had the same experience?

I'm going to buy 1 day of premium, just to test it out.

 

EDIT: Didn't work. I demand a refund!

No ELC EVEN 90 early access for you, as long as you own a coupon, even if you currently have a premium account. This is how WG "accidentally"  excludes their "small percentage of players who should have got the offer". ;)

Missed that part. Going to try again using my coupon.

 

EDIT: Still nothing...

I'm pretty sure the same thing has been posted multiple times in other threads but OP has chosen to ignore those posts because it messes with his "proof".

You're grasping for straws here. No one knows what's going on with the selective early access.


I'm going to boycot premium tanks from now on, with the poor marketing of WG.

I'm assuming they're mucking around with algorythms to optimise their marketing, like other random discounts, offers, etc that would pop up recently.

 

It's a garbage tank anyway and yet they managed to create hype and sell a ton of them with this early access nonsense...

well, scientifically speaking, I cannot verify the validity of the previous samples, since I have no evidence that they have been taken under the same circumstances. for example, we'd have to consider

- account creation date (WG wanting to reward "loyal" players),

- active premium account (not knowing if the amount of days left matters),

- current coupon situation (currently in player's possession and also usable on the EVEN 90?).

 

I am annoyed that I could not use my coupon on that tank (and as soon as I spent it on sth else, the early access offer popped up), and I'd like to find out, if anyone else has experienced this ... no need to go all angry-WG-fanboy-y on me and expect me to spend my saturday morning moderating this thing here :rolleyes:. Just trying to raise some awareness, so WG won't crap all over us more than they already do.

Have any of you sent a ticket?  If you do then you will get access I think.  I did.

I sent one on Thursday - so far, no response.

Also, Ph3lon (or whatshisname) said, it would be technically impossible(!) to add new players to the list. Noone on earth could program this! are you insane?! :D

I don't want to call WG incompetent, since, in their case, that word is not strong enough anymore.

At least edit your original post to reflect the fact that what you claim is not categorically true. I had a coupon that expired yesterday, I got the offer for the EVEN the first day people were getting them. Didn't even have to play a random battle for it, it popped up after playing a SH battle.

Took mine a couple of days to work and the only way I found out was the offer popping up in the client.

 

I think it is pretty crappy state of affairs myself.

Anyway those coupons wouldn t help you I think : I cannot buy the Mauerbrecher offer which is without any promotion, and my coupon says : no gold, no primotional offer and no limited time offer.

I can only buy regular premium tanks and premium time.

 

And yes coupon dead tonight and no offer of elc even.

On premium time since october and till july.

I've taken the liberty of editing your post to the only relevant part. I'm sure if you continue throwing tantrums you'll definitely get your own way because that's the way the world works. :child:

reasonable advice. after all, I want to gather other people's experience and information first. and I actually also forgot the question mark in the topic's header.
