That is not true. "December the 1st" is the rather old british way of writing dates. That's how I learned in middle school too, but it's rarely used nowadays. Ask wikipedia if you don't believe me.

Well if you have enough gold put aside for what interests you, you might end up not spending a dime, since we're giving you the possibility of buying what's popping out the advent calendar through in-game gold - something that the community regularly asks for and doesn't really happen everyday.

Also if we put something for sale and you decide to get it, you're the one who's treating yo self. :trollface:

Yes indeed, the possibility to buy with gold is very nice.

However, assuming there will be loot boxes later on December, starting the advent calendar before the selling o loot boxes is borderline a cash-grab. Especially since we can't pick 3 tanks to buy later this time.

 

Please don't put anything interesting in the advent calendar the first half of the month.

Can I access all of the deals using only web browser? I'll be - as usual - on vacation during the holidays and without a PC, just with my smartphone. And doing the VPN-WakeOnLAN-TeamViewer-LaunchingWoT-RemoteDesktop combo every day is extremely annoying (as I did during Black Market event).

 

You, sir, you have my deepest respect.

 Ask most people what date they were born on they will reply the *st *nd *rd or *th with the month preceeding or following that number.  The comment was more about the spoken form, not the written which frequently can be *st etc or just a plain number.  Rarely used is an exageration, I see both forms on a daily basis.

Good evening fellas!

 

Maybe I'm speshuuul a bit and excited about the upcoming christmas event but that covered tonk in the background is very suspicious to me. I mean its shape is like the obj 777 and even the gun barrel is very similar to the obj 777 ones.... I don't know just guessing. :hiding:

 

 

Edit: Just double checked the barrel, I admit that's not accurate but its hull shape is still suspicious. :)

I'm divided.

I kind of want something like LeFH to be on sale for gold, but then again. Maybe for the sake of the player base it's better to not have Armageddon sold for gold.

What do they mean by: 

 

"If you buy a tank from your game client which you already own, you will receive compensation of the tank cost in Gold, plus a Garage slot, and free x5 XP for the first 25 victories."

 

So if I buy a tank I already own in the game client as they write... I will only pay for the garage slot and get 25 x5 for victories? (Based on how they sometimes let us buy for gold)

Zapfhan, Sael,

I have a related question: if the tank is discounted in the Advent Calendar and you buy a tank you already have, do you get the full amount of gold of the nominal tank price or will it be lowered by the discount rate ?

means if you buy a tank u already have it, you can't have the tank twice, so you will receive other stuff plus it's cost in gold.

 

Yeah I know that part, however last year you could buy some of the offers for gold, do you then get that gold returned minus this tank slot and get all the goodies for free?

Anything special you would like to see? 

 

 

We will see

 

 

It will contain (most likely) tanks 

 

 

We will update you guys if this is only for purchases in the premium shop or also for purchases done in the game.

 

 

Sweet or Salty popcorn :trollface:

 

 

Unfortunately this won't be available during the Calendar.  


So if I buy a tank thats already in my garage i get a garage and 25 pieces of x5X package for free + gold compansation but this is the important one when can I get the gold compansation ? Do I get it riight away ? Or do I wait for January ? There is no explaination on the portal about that ? Because there will be more surprises maybe even black market (who knows) ?

It will contain surprise vehicles? You mean like the IS-6 Black? Because THAT would be surprising :D

 

Seriously though, will there be one or more new tanks in the calendar, or can I expect it to exclusively contain tanks I already have?

Can we have a British Chieftan tech tree line for Christmas please? It would help make up for the massively underwhelming and very disappointing British lights!
