"Important: There will be no Gold or Credits compensation if you already own these tanks."

If the tanks are not too expensive why not, if we have to farm, I would say "Frontline-like" to have a tier V premium, thanks but no thanks :teethhappy:

A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.

What *EDIT* rewards.

I already have every single one of those underwhelming premium tanks.

Even the missions are not worth doing, just to win *EDIT* small repair kits or manual fire extinguishers.

 

Oh and one of the missions can only be done in tier 9 or 10 tanks.

Not everybody has tier 9 or 10 tanks.

 

So I think you need to go back to the drawing board Wargaming.

Will you be able to select the reward tank because I already have 2 of the 3 ?

WG: "Here's some free stuff in return for playing the game!" :great:

Players: "This free stuff is the wrong colour" :sceptic:

WG: "Erm ..." :unsure:

 

 

Free thing is free so it gets a thumbs up from me. (Ooh, unintentional poetry!) Thanks for bringing this over, WG. I'm not bothered about the tanks but it's good for the collectors and anyone who wants a mid-tier trainer. I'd also love to see bonds in the rewards but I'd be happy to see equipment and consumables too, anything that saves my credits for the important things like maintaining my supply of gold ammo.

 

One thing though, whoever did the copy/paste from the .com site didn't change the link text. The links on the 'About' and 'FAQ' pages reads "TankRewards.com" but take you to the .eu landing page. Once a tester, always a ... etc. ;)

Hmm, had hoped for at least some interesting tier 6s and 7s, like the Cromwell B or the IS-2. Not really sure if it's worth the time for tier 5s that I will propably never play. Don't get me wrong WG, it's a nice idea, the rewards are just not interesting enough.

Just because something is free doesn't mean that it's good. I can think of atleast 5 things I can send to you for free, question is if you would also give me a thumbs up for that?

It's a nice special if you don't have those 3 tanks, but pretty much underwhelming if you do (& maybe a little galling if you suspect you paid cash for one or more of them, once upon a time).

 

Throwing a few crew/xp boosters in with the final tank rewards might have been an idea.

Nice. Free stuff is always welcome, time to get that Ram II in my garage. I really hope the blueprint rewards are at least nation specific, i have enough universal ones. Exp and cred reserves would be appreciated too, still have a lot of them, but FL is burning through them fast.
I'd say the tanks offered are adequate considering it is the first time the event is held on a big server. I wouldn't mind if the second time it comes there are some harder missions giving us a chance to get some tier 6 and 7 premiums too.

The three tanks we can get are probably part of the bèta test...

Well it's not only free tier 5 tank and not only cheap consumables. There are also some reserves (and maybe other crap like decals) on the way there. To be fair "no compensation rule" sucks. Those tanks sucks aswell, but at least you get space for crew members or free garage slot. On NA rewards got better after a while (last month: Cromwell B, Strv m/42-57 Alt A.2, T-34-85M). To be fair I'd rather get bad rewards for no effort missions than no rewards at all.

Possibly. Will it be free things directly linked to something I already enjoy that I'd otherwise have to buy for myself? Things that I may or may not be interested in but are harmless to my personal well-being and in situ progress whether I accept them or not?

 

Or are you using 'free' as a euphemism for 'any old crap laying in the street'? Context is important.

 

Tell you what, let's test your proposal with an experiment. Send me some gold or a premium tank and see whether I give your post a 'like' or post a thumbs-up in return. :rolleyes:

Hello! 

 

From the FAQ section, please find the answer on choosing your prize: 

Once a prize tier has been unlocked you can go to TankRewards.com to select the prize you would like in this tier. You are awarded (1) prize per tier you unlock. These prizes will be credited to your account as soon as you've selected them (there may be a slight delay).

Note that after selecting a prize, your points do not change and continue accumulating.

The point is to play as you would normally and get goodies while you do. Free things are free things, the alternative is no missions and no rewards as before?
