Whut ?  Wait... I have played yesterday the whole day until 5 in the afternoon (had dinner appointment) and the counter didn't change nor did I get this T25. This morning I started a new game and no T25 was granted.

Now you are telling me that the counter was updated at night instead of "The event progress will be updated every morning, so stay tuned!" and now I am to late to collect the reward ????

Seriously if that's the case, than this must be the worst communication/description for a mission in history......

 

Same for me and agree with you. Yes it is my fault not sit in front of the forum all day and wait for the notification even 25M done hours earlier

Indeed. They recently added new ingame advertisements for selling tier VIII premium of the week. Really annoying to have to click away popups in your garage!

Also, I accidentally found out about this sprint mission on Tuesday, so I also wasted like 3 days worth of tokens, because I was playing Saturday to Monday every night...

 

 

It has nothing to do with skill, because in every game the top 10 players of both winning and losing team receive a token if they activated the mission. It's only about giving enough exposure to this mission so players actually know about it...

 

 

 

Yes it has to do with skill, but not on a very high level. As you said there are were 10 tickets per match. Normally you would just play but 75 tickets in 14 13 days means at least 6 matches in whihc you get tickets, which could go as far as 10 matches to make sure you get them. I'm not confortable spending 10 matches per day when I'm not having fun.

Hold on let me get this right. I wont get my tank because I didnt sit in front of the computer non-stop to notice when the 25M hit? You have to be kidding me.

Nope, their not kidding.

Love this line when you read about the mission for T-25:

WG writes: 
In this case, the required score to receive the main prize is... 25 Million!

So the requried socre to recive the mian prize is ... 25 million.
That number was reached, then I should get the main prize? Right?

Can some one from WG comment about this line: 

From 1 September at 07:00 to 14 September at 07:00 CEST (UTC+2), the entire EU server has the chance to win a mid-tier Premium vehicle, the Pz.Kpfw. T 25 by completing a special mission. Every time this mission is accomplished, it grants a certain number of tokens, and the progress of each participant counts towards a grand total.

In this case, the required score to receive the main prize is... 25 Million!

I would say that this information is really miss-informative.
This would make me belive that the main prize was won when the score was 25 million, right?
Could you agree that you were quite blunt about the information on how the "last" battle and that 25 million did not unlock a tank, but only the final mission.

Any company that came out with this information would have to stand up to their word.
As you say: The main prize is won when the requred score hits 25 million.

Stay true to your word WG!

Come on WG be generous and activate the mission to actually get the T25 for all people that made the 70 tokens mark for one extra day aka today.

 

In the comments above you see how much confusion this line " the progress will be updated every morning" and then on the last day, suddenly do it twice and late afternoon, so lots of people have not seen the message and are now missing out.

 

This was to be expected and no you can not simply put the blame on them for that and say sorry.

Yes, it's over now. The event rules were quite clear on what would happen and when it was ending.

The event clearly stated that you had to play a battle after the final reward mission was unlocked. It was unlocked 14 hours and 12 minutes before the event end time.

The event clearly stated when it would be ending. It ended 1 hour and 15 minutes ago.

 

 

Yes, it was stated clearly. However having that short timeframe on some random thursday in which you can claim the reward is really mindboggling.

 

I don't get it why was it so hard to lock the tokens this morning and give e.g. a week to play a battle and claim the reward to anyone who got the required number of tokens.

 

It's not that I'm complaining about not getting the free stuff (although it isn't really free, as it gave me additional incentive to play the game which means I probably spent more time playing than I usually would), but it still leaves a sour taste. Just because I wasn't able to play on some random working weekday, I don't get the reward.

But if for example we got 25mil tokens only yesterday evening, I would probably be able to get it today because, as it's stated in the mission, "Because of technical limitations, the mission will be unlocked manually, which may take up to the next working day, depending on when the goal was reached."

 

It's just so random. Thanks for nothing, WG.

Hey guys, 

 

Don't worry, we have a solution for those of you who fulfilled all the requirements but couldn't activate the mission in time. It might take some time, however we will make sure that if you earned the reward, you will get it as well. I'll report back when I have more details.

I had no time to check up on the mission yesterday, only in the morning. At that point we already had the 25 mil but "due to technical limitations the mission could take up one day to be activated" or something like that. I said okay, tomorrow I can get my T25 no problem. Here I am, missed the T25 because you cant even give a bit of a time for people to activate the reward, also it took about half a day to start the whole thing while the clock was already ticking, yet you haven't made up for the time lost. Absolute pathetic execution from WG. I thought 8 years of experience with wot would make you experts in these, but anything you guys do resembles the work of a *edit garage company. Like literally anything, just try me, tell me anything you did and I will tell you why it is absolute and utter crap... Edit: I censored it and it was fine that way. Oh well, as I said, garage company...

I'm a little concerned about the camo set....does this combination suggest that I plan to drown in the next battle?

​It is called deep sea camo, very useful on SPG's.

Good afternoon. When running a marathon on T 25 (25 million ), I collected more than 100 tokens and played a battle on 14.09.18, why is there no tank in the hangar?

So you lost two weeks for this mission? For a tank that's not even worth 10€?

For those who didn't get the tank that they wanted,  all you had to do was plan to log in and hit battle once during the course of last night.

The mission was unlocked what? About 5pm EST?
Most people, except shift workers with bad luck will be getting out of work/school around then.
Then it's a matter of playing one battle, no matter the result, you get the tank.

Not realising that you had to play that battle isn't an excuse, it's been there on the news article since the beginning.
Not reading that properly is your fault.

Not everyone can do all grinds. That's to be expected. Someone away on holiday can't do it either.
Good thing it's a cheap tier 5 med then.

I can't do the Caernarvon grind. I'm moving house and won't have internet for a while, on top of everything else that's involved with doing so.

Boo hoo.

Oh good one Ph3lan & WG.

 

Now can you extend the Caernarvon grind for me so I can do it after my move? :P

 

Despite what I said above about planning, it's good that people don't miss out.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who do not spend every evening surfing the WoT forums or starting the game. I got the T25 because I was checking reddit at 11pm in bed and had to reboot my notebook to play one game.

It's good if WG is fixing this.
