Im quite confused with how the account age works in consideration to rewards because I created my account years ago and it says on the forums that I created it in 2014 which seems about right. Ingame on the other hand it says I created this account in March 2017. 

Im very confused and was wondering how this would work in consideration to the Anniversary Rewards?

Please help my friend is also concerned about this.

I'm having the exact same issue. Had the game since 2014 when I got my PC, I cant log out of this account because I don't have access to the email used for it (forgot its password lol) so this has been the only account I've used. It says I made it in 2017 when I've had it since 2014 like wtf

Well then, did you do an account reset at some point? The portal says it's when you created the account. So if you have reset it etc. Who knows what counts then. As that has not been pointed out.

Nah, no account reset. Literally all I did was download and create account in 2014, played a few games, quit primarily because 3-5-7 in tier 4 was too painful so I just stopped playing, returned again in 2017 using the same account, picked up where I left off, quit again to play other games then recently started playing again this year. Worked up the same lines I left back in 2014 as well. I have changed nothing on my part so :P

With 883 battles played in 4 years, why do you even worry about your gift? You don't even play the game, what is the point?

And isn't the account creation and forum registration two completely different things ? 

 

Just a thought.

I didnt sign up the the forum of a game 3 years before I played it xD. I know for sure I played before 2017 and only set up the forum account after my main thing.

my account in game says Created: 25 April 2011

I think as it was beta I had to register HERE in the forum before activation.  I just didn't get enough battles for the Beta tank so probably didn't qualify for Beta tester status under the picture.

I don't need to play so much to enjoy the game. I do play it. Before I got my PC, I played it a crap ton on my xbox so yes, I do and have played the game loads I just haven't clocked as many battles because I don't enjoy playing the game on my own, much like other games. I prefer playing with my mates. I'll settle with just the 1 year thing, a freebie is a freebie, I was just wondering because I have had the account since 2014. Got my PC for my birthday and this was the first game I downloaded on it. 

 

You're getting overly annoyed and triggered over something that you're making out to be a huge deal. I literally responded to the post because I have had the concern about it.

Fair enough, 3-5-7 wasn't there, that was something I didn't remember correctly so forgive me on that part.

 

I'm on about the password to the email used for the account. If any sort of verification is required to log in and its sent to that email, I've lost the account because I wont be able to verify it since I don't have access to the email in use for this account.

It was the ONLY reason you gave us for why you stopped playing, and it was wrong...:facepalm:

 

But of course, you are forgiven:)

Yes.  For various reasons they will differ.

 

For beta testers the account creation is the first time they played after beta but the forum account will reflect when they signed up for beta.

 

And recent players don't get a forum account until they visit the forum.

 

There could also be Planes, Boats, or Blitz players who visited the forum before playing Tanks.

 

So it's all a bit of a mess.

 

First thing to do is wait and see what you get in the morning.   Then raise a ticket if you think it's wrong.

Says 2014 on your forum profile. So I suspect you will get the right one. The other guy says 2017, even tho he claims 2014. As we said, the rewards are based on when you created the account.

According to this post in announcement, it's the first time you login to the game, not the time you registered >

i see a lot of questions that didn't get address yet. I am writing as a player with some inside knowledge so i want to help :)

First login year Player group Years in game First Login
2010 Alpha Alpha can't remember - 07/07/2010
2010 after Alpha- 2011 before release Beta Beta 08/07/2010 - 12/04/2011
2011 after Beta - 2012 Release 6+ 13/04/2011 - 31/12/2012
2013   5 01/01/2013 - 31/12/2013
2014   4 01/01/2014 - 31/12/2014
2015   3 01/01/2015 - 31/12/2015
2016   2 01/01/2016 - 31/12/2016
2017   1 01/01/2017 - 31/12/2017

 

This table shows in which category you fall according to your first login to the game. 

What counts is the First Login line. So if you logged in in August 2010 you are in the Beta group, because it was in Beta.

If you logged in in June 2010 you are in the Alpha group. 

Even if you wait until next year, the "Years in game" stay the same as in the table above.

As for the Beta players, it doesn't matter if open/closed beta, both are from the same group.

 

Hope that helps you to figure out in which group you belong. And nope, days cannot be changed. So 01.01.2015 belongs to the 2015 group

so if you registered in 2014 (thought you logged in but didn't) and didn't login until 2017, then you're sol

 

My problem was that i registered on the 11th, but not downloading the right client reasons, i didn't login until the 13th, so i'm sol for the badge:facepalm::D

Everywhere else. Inc on the portal. It says the year you did register your account. Not when you first logged in, or played a battle. If this is true, then CC's etc have been giving out false or conflicting info. As they did it based on what the portal says, and the info they got sent from WG.

As you see, it's a member of the customer support team, so whether it's correct or not is anybodys guess

 

Edit:after looking into it further, i have also seen official posts saying year of registration, so idk what to believe now:confused:

Well, "registration" is a loose term. As WG accounts are shared between titles (WoT, WoWs, WoWp) it's more likely that first WoT login counts (=account is "registered" in WoT), else they'd give out WoT loyalty rewards to many people that never played WoT at all.
