For those moaning about no compensation, just sell one of the ones you own already now for credits, then take it back as your reward tank. You then gain some credits? Simples!

All I know is that there are a few people in this thread who must act like really spoilt brats at Christmas when Great Auntie Maud gives them a rubbish commemorative tea-towel and they don’t even have the good grace to say thanks!

As far as I’m concerned there are no downsides to a system that simply rewards you for playing!

What is for free is cool

I hope the reward tanks comes with garrage slots

Will we be able to pick out the blueprints ? I have all three tanks so picking tank specific blueprints would be a nice alternative. If they are nation or universal not so much.

Just load NA-client and create an account there.

Silver, Gold, real money, Bonds and now Tank Reward Points. The monetary system in this game is getting very confusing.

So basically the worst 3 tanks in the game as reward? Well guess they can collect dust in a lot of garages.

One is a gift in a general sense, the other is a promotional item earned through engaging with the product

 

Oh my. I see that this won't lead anywhere...

 

Yes, one is a gift for free, another one is a reward for a mission, that's what differs. But the common factor between these two is that you need to find the item valuable in order to perceive the item as a gift or a reward. It still follows the same principle, it's just that you don't see it, because you don't want to see it.

one doesn't have to pay anything for it above the investment made anyway to engage with the product.

 

First of all, time is money. The time people invest into completing the mission can also be considered money. Secondly, what makes you think that "people play anyway"? No, that's not the case for a lot of players. A lot of players come here when there's a reason to play. Rewards that are not attractive for these players will not make them play, instead they will do something else that they perceive as more attractive.

I see that this conversation won't lead anywhere so I will leave it here. Usually, you can determine within a few posts if a person will understand what you mean or not. This is just not a disagreement, it appears you actually don't understand the point I'm making. But look it from the bright side, people can give you whatever trash they don't need and pretend that it means a lot to them, and you will be overly happy because you got a gift.

That's some very weird way of thinking. To be honest, it seems like you're more into different academic names and terms than actually thinking for yourself if the stuff you write actually makes sense. But whatever, if that makes it valuable for you, go for it, honestly not my problem.

I understand your reasoning, I disagree with it. Maybe you could try not taking that quite so personally, though given your selfish attitude towards free gifts I doubt that you will. Perhaps one day you'll realise that the world doesn't revolve around you.

Then you could have written that earlier and we wouldn't have continued the discussion for so long :)

Now you're being completely rediculous. So I have a selfish attitude because I think that if someone wants to make me a gift, they can first find out what I actually want instead of giving me some leftover trash that I don't want? Are you serius right now? Wow, the way people think continues to surprise me every single day. I would have been selfish if I took whatever gift I could just for the sake of taking it. And you would have been selfish for giving whatever stuff you can just for the sake of being generous.

 

There's no point that we continue this discussion becase we are two different people with two entirely different mentalities.

Not at all, the context of the TankRewards scheme is that you can earn tank rewards for playing the game. Did the compound name confuse you? I'm referring to free things in that context. You're referring to anything that's free, which changes the context considerably. It's like my saying I'll give you a free car and then presenting you with a rotten fish - it's still free so why are you turning your nose up?

I made it clear that we were referring to different contexts and now you're arguing that pointing out different contexts doesn't show that we disagree. I can see from your semantic crusade on the definition of the word 'gift' that you have trouble with anything that isn't literal. I regret that I have neither the time nor the crayons to explain this in a way you might understand so I'm going to leave it there.

 

Have a nice day. :honoring:

I'd get over 300k credits for my M4 ... but then I'd lose the camo on the tank & 30 gold for removing the equipments I have on it, so won't be bothering myself, but this may be a good idea for some.

 

sell the equipment and re-buy on discount. No loss there.

Yes, you indeed tried to make a difference between rewards and gifts, which once again follows the same principle. But you never said that you actually understood what I wrote and just disagreed with me. If you would have, I wouldn't had continued the discussion so long with you, since a disagreement in opinion is often difficult to solve.

 

But instead of admitting that, it's much easier to just blame the other person and then run away. Classical human behaviour.

Look, if you didn't like the conversation we had, you could always pretend that it was a gift from me that meant very much. And then, suddenly, this conversation will mean a lot to you aswell, and you will be overly happy for this very valuable discussion we had. Simple, stright from your book of logics.

 

Have a nice evening and please be thankful of my gift otherwise you're being selfish :honoring:

Really quite nice actually, might get me to play a bit again.

 

Now if only you'd actually let me restore my T14, which I've owned before, that would be even better!

Nice missions for newer players. Nothing too complicated, just play the game and get crew trainers. Not everything has to cater to those who already have every tank that interests them.

What NBF said, just sell them and buy them back later for the exact same price. Whuhh is why I always have extra equipment in my depot.

 

And the camo (unless a rental) gets put back in your depot too, you dont lose it.
