It's a pretty pattern. Two practical questions about styles, though:

If I apply a style to a vehicle that already has camo paint on it, will that paint still be on the tank if I remove the style later?

If I apply a style to a vehicle and then remove it later, will it be lost or will it return to my depot to be used on a different tank?

1) If you apply a camo set on a tank which is already covered by other camo set, the previous set automatically goes to depot and it is ready for use on other tanks.

2) You cannot apply this camo set to tanks with fixed painting (like the Skorpion G, Fury, Pudel, Alpine Tiger, etc).

Of course,  but I don't think it's only Africa in any case. As far as I know, they aim to help affected children in any war-zone

It may be that we should be more conscious of what goes on in the world and question what we are told when wars are started.

It's easy to resort to violence but very difficult to put people back together afterwards. True for wars and smaller disputes.

How about we make a start during armistice day by playing the game without abusing fellow players, in deed or word, and recall and respect those who lost their opportunity to life in the real world?

Done, I bought the large bundle ...

... even me, a Greek with a very limited pocket, can offer some Euros for charities, especially for Children.

 

Sorry, to say my fellow co-patriot I do not consider this as a charity. I understand your pure feelings but I do not  feel the same to donate to some organizations with unknown motives.*edited*

Looks good.

 

 

I got a coupon for 30% discount in Premium Shop.

 

Thing is I got all the tanks from the shop. The coupon is not valid for Gold, Prem time, Special Offers, Styles etc

 

WG Please change my Coupons to make other purchases. I would gladly use this Coupon to buy these new style but I can't

 

Thank you

 

This

 

I would like that the otherwise pretty useless 30% coupon would be valid for these WarChild charity styles/emblems.

 

It would be even more impressive if WG would chip in the difference eg WarChild would still get €10 while i "pay" only €7

While this would make the accountants unhappy, the PR & goodwill value it generates is basically priceless

When it comes to charities, throwing money into toilet has the same effect.

Maybe you should get involved in such organisations to understand what is all about. Also it would be a great idea that WG would create a video presentation of the organisation and the work that they are doing. How they are using the money ! In this way, maybe more founds will be raised !

If it starts at home it doesn't need to end at home, you can give to more than one charity. What do you do, donate 50p on Poppy Day and consider yourself done with charity until next year?

So what you are saying is that only countries with zero problems should help the countries in crisis. :confused:

For 2 reasons I bought the little one style package:

1) I give some money to an association.

2) I want WG to make money by creating more aesthetics, camos, style and other stuff to customize our tanks (logs, objects...) and not by doing premium tanks milking everyday!

Berry Ritchie, a former chairman of trustees, said: "I was appalled. It staggered me that anybody involved in a charitable exercise, particularly one of the founders, should actually consider that he was justified in taking the money."

 

There have also been disputes over the Liberian project. War Child's accounts show £287,464 was spent on the project. Yet according to Myrtle Gibson, the Liberian government senator in charge of the project: "The only thing we have seen on the ground is a Range Rover."

First off foodbanks ARE charity. Second, if we want to prevent reliance on foodbanks, why are we voting in austerity politicians. Finally, even if you aren't a charitable person, maybe we (Britain at least) shouldn't be selling arms to the countries where these wars are happening. Furthermore, maybe we should stop voting for politicians who prosecute illegal wars, which in Britain's case, unfortunately includes the vast majority of it's politicians.

Thanks for giving us a 2001 article explaining why YOU won't be giving. Anything more recent?

Hi WG staff

I really appreciate and like the initiative and will buy a bundle, like i did last time. 

But i do agree with others that have made similar posts, i would like to have some more transparency and know what "net" means.

Have seen way to many initiatives that, at the end of the day, don’t deliver that much "net" at all. 

I think that more transparency (given the “net” is decent) will gather more funding to the children.

Again, a very good initiative and i will buy it every time it shows up so do hope that "once in a lifetime" statement is wrong.
