What is the reason Object 907 and VK 72.01(K) are again also not included in reward tanks?

WG do this kind of thing a lot.  They appear to give a reward but it's actually a lot less valuable than it appears.

 

"YOU CAN GET REWARD TANKS FOR BONDS*"

 

*the crap ones that nobody wants, not the good ones that everyone is after.

 

I first saw this with a birthday giveaway (5 years).  Players with 5 years (and hence loads of spare slots) got given 5.  Players with 1 year (and desperate for extra slots) got given 1.

No 907 and reduced importance of personal FapPoints, talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

 

Block Quote

An important difference between Arms Race and Operation "Gambit" is that bonuses to personal Fame Points will be significantly restricted, thus the struggle for positions on the personal leaderboard will be harder for strong clans and easier for weaker clans.

 

And we've also introduced participation awards?

 

I thought CW was a competition between the best clans/players of the server but I guess I was wrong in thinking that.

 

Anyway, I was only missing the VK of all the tanks and didn't really care for it anyway, so this will be a super relaxed campaign for me personally since there is no viable CW reward tank at stake.

It kinda sucks hearing this knowing you're not the best and, while improving, want these rewards. For once, they are exactly what I want. I seem to have a thing for mediocre tanks and these are mediocre tanks.

 

But of course, will take a lot from me to get them at my current skill level. But I hope it's still doable.

What is it with WG and T10? 

 

Offers nothing for newer players. I'm still about 180k XP to my first T10 and even if I had it now, I'd avoid this and Ranked...

Well I have all the tanks now and I don't care about bonds, so whats in it for me? 

CW campings used to be to get something special and show of later, I had to fight for a tier 7  that I don't even care from the day I got it (t23e3 and won it 3 times, thx for the gold).

its seem you WG are able to find new russian premium tanks every few months, and them give them for "free", why cant you "make" some more for occasions like this?

Well, if your whole clan is active enough it would seem it is doable with this system ;)

 

Honestly I have all 3 tanks and I really quite like them *BECAUSE* they are underdogs in most engagements, it's a nice challenge. The 907 is boring and I've stopped playing it in randoms because it's blatantly better than the competition across the board. Among the highest DPM, effective armor, good mobility, great gun handling etc., where is the challenge?

When will we in good heavens name get a NEW reward tank, I wouldnt even care if it'd be a T8 at this moment, but giving out the same fing rewards for years is just dumb. But atleast I can buy the polish defender soon thats totally what I wanted :bajan:.

Yeah I had to laugh when I saw the stats of that thing (initial one) and they were even better than the Defender (it also has thicker frontal armor) which was hilarious :D

Guess they never learn.

Thank you for making 2nd CW event per year. These events are the best things about this game (personal opinion).

I think that it would be fear if somebody owns all the tree aviable reward thanks could choose from the rest of two.

I have all reward tanks except the VK and if I had known, that it won't be avaiable next time I would have chosen the VK last year. :(

Why don't you lads here read the entire post before posting here and rage about no new tanks.... There MIGHT be a new tank coming!

  • The list of available vehicles, as well as the exchange rate, will be provided later in the detailed Rules and Regulations of the Arms Race.

 

So just wait until they release the rules and regulations.

Sorry but what you quoted there does in no imaginable way suggest that there is a new reward tank incoming
