You want people to play a mission, but to get that mission you have to click a button -> leave your game -> Read a whole lot of text -> decipre that the title "SEPTEMBERSPRINT" is the code (it looks like a title and it actually looks the code is missing from the text) -> Go to yet another page to enter the code. 

I bet you lose a lot of players on this UX journey. 

 

I get it, you have working solution to enable missions (codes) so this is the way to do it, or not do it at all. Still as a feedback, I think it's QUESTIONABLE. ;)

I would only care if the reward wasn't so dull.

It seems that many players think that it's an awful tank. But it's free!!!!

 

Let's  all complain :angry:

It's actually a great tank. One of the only t5 I enjoy playing from time to time. I even cared marking that machine. However, you shouldn't use a fresh crew since Viewrange, Mobility, Gunhandling Skills etc. are crucial for that one.

Not complaining. Just not showing any interest.

Oh yeah. I'm sure WOT will lose many players over the fact they had to manually enter a code to join it for an event. As I did it on one page only. Via the link in the upper right corner of this forum.  And that was... to much work for you or? As you can say it's crowd control vs the way they did the T-34-85M event that did ruin tier 6 for a bit.

I already have it. But other nice rewards on the way. That said it's not a great tank due to the terrible gun handling. I'll train with the Pz IV S over that. But it's still free, so I suspect most won't complain IF they get it. But I'm sure some will. Like the II D topics we had. For a free tier II.

And what would it have to be to make you show interest for a tier 5 prem that is? Just out of curiosity. Even so you get it just by playing. And there are free stuff along the way worth getting or... selling besides the tank.

Oh, I'm not criticising. It's just a comment on how it's a completely free opportunity to gain a Premium tank that seems to be not worth the fuss, but we're all going to [edited]about how we don't get it because of the requirements.

Exactly. If we do get it, my highly trained female E50 crew will be going in it.

Sorry for not being clear enough. 

- I'm not complaining about the tank.

- I'm questioning the way WG is promoting the mission.

- It's awful User Interface (UI/UX) to make people jump from the game to a web-page -->  copy a code from text (that is not clearly presented) and then insert the code with copypaste. 

 

But as I said, they are likely using current tools that are not designed to do this kind of promotion. And I think it's lazy.

 

And now I'm getting similar popups to buy a Super Pershing that I already have... 10/10 

 

And I did not mean to imply WOT is losing players in the game. I meant many players won't activate the code.

It is quite easy, actually. So, no, I don't quite see your point.

 

This way, people need to do *something* to get the tank. Compared to the many, many hours it usually takes to get a 'free' tank, a task that shouldn't take more than 30 seconds is just about as easy as it gets. Those people too dumb to follow through... well, I am not sure they should be playing this game. (Sadly, they do.)

The event is a fail.

25 million is too high for the players.

There is a carrot on a stick in front of us, but we are not allowed to complain.

 

Frustrating.

Its actually quite a nice event, but a complete fail in execution. 

 

Requiring to jump out of the game, find the code and enter it is aimed at probably 10-15% players that have brain and the ability to read WoT homepage and/or forums. And what a wonder, the event requirements won't be met. 

 

Same like usual teams (and a win chance) you get while playing.

It is I think just in the middle of the duration, and the count is 12 million, which is about half.

Think we ll make it :girl:

Except time used is about 60% and results we achieved is at 45% of what is needed. We will probably be short by about 6 million at the end, so we will most definitely not make it unless something extraordinary happens.
