Again: what happened with "we'll do better"?!! "the most accessible"?!! The person doing the writing seem to be oblivious to the fact that is presenting another grind. Seem that is the only type we have lately. And the previous Tank rewards editions were far more accessible than this one.

For providing a free special that you can do in 15 days (without the use of the premium tanks)? Yes, totally greedy...


You can't do Renegade event + this one and if you want to do this one and have a normal life.

To do renegade event and this one means that after the renegade event ends, you are still looking at 5-6hs / day to get it.

 

This is about as 'free' as the trojan horse.

Seems a bit more Grundy than previous instances, but the flip side is also a better reward - tier VII

How about those who already have M56 Scorpion in the hangar?

 

Besides, a nice idea for forcing players to use more different tiers' tanks in the times of minimarathon. ;)

Not really, If you play for the M54 Renegade it adds you 34 more battles per day which are not counted for the Marathon.

15 days? Sure, if you have the latest premium reward tanks AND you have tank at ALL tiers of the game, then yes you can actually complete this grindfest of an event in 13 days, but it'll cost you about 5.5 hours of your time per day, every single day, for those 13 days.

 

And if you don't have either the latest premium/reward tanks and/or you don't have tanks at Tiers 8-10, then you're basically screwed, because you not only can't unlock the M56 Scorpion, but you also can't unlock the level 4 rewards because you'll be short by 20 points.

 

And you wonder why people are not happy?

If you actually read what I wrote, that's without the premium tanks. Also, that's the minimum you can do it in, luckily, you have more than 15 days.

But the point was, this special is in no way related to whether WG is greedy or not as it costs literally no money in order to take part and complete.

NO WAY I'm going to bother with this. You want me to grind like lunatic again. Last month's event was WAAAAAY better, I played 1 - 5 battles a day, depending on my mood, and now we should play like at least 15 battles a day. NOPE.

 

But thanks for trying, no hard feelings, it's just not worth it WG :)

 

EDIT: WG, do missions "overlap"? Can you play 2 tier 10 battles, 3 in AE Phase 1, 2 in Emil 1951, and 2 in regular tier 8 tank, and get 10 points for Let it snow, 10 for New Toys, and 60 for Reindeer? In total 80 points for 9 battles? Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT2: So if this is true, you would need to play for 23 days 9 battles a day. About 24 - 28 hours of gameplay for tier 7 premium. It's 50% less time consuming than Renegade marathon, but still reward is more than 50% weaker tank. So... yeah :D

I like those missions for 2-5 tier tanks.
Easy and few games per day.
This will be skip because of too much time for it.
Please just continue with tank rewards up to tier 5 :)

Hi all,

I am just trying to select my prize Reward Tier IV of November Tank Reward event on the webpage but it is not possible.

It was very clear at the following webpage "https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/tank-rewards-november-2019/" that "While the event ends on 26 November, you can select your prizes from the start of the event until 30 November at 6:00 CET (UTC+1).

I am login in at Tank Rewards webpage but there is the webpage of the event "Jungle Shells"

 

what happened to the problem???

 

very frivolous...WG   omg good bay............................

 

The site was changed last night before the expiry time. It has been reported by many through tickets and on the "bugs" thread. Keep checking, they might provide a solution.

Already have M56? "No gold or credit compensation unless otherwise noted." From the official FAQ on the tank rewards page.

Thus how buyers of premium tanks are rewarded by WG. Nothing. And you have to go into FAQ to find out, no mention on main page.

If you've already got it, you don't need to bother grinding towards it then, do you. Simple.

 

Or... If you use your brain, you can realise that you can sell your existing M56, gaining free credits, before unlocking the reward one...

But hey ho, gotta hate on WG at every opportunity...

Lol, I agree.

It's much more of a grind but, okay, the reward is a tier 7.

But, as you say, the writer is plain wrong to say it's the most accessible. Last time 100 tickets were available for playing 1 battle so WG have made the whole thing much more inaccessible. Maybe they don't understand what 'accessible' means. This is why I'm #walletclosed - WG just say 'stuff'; but what they say has no meaning or basis in fact. I don't blame them for being a multi-national corporation but their jibber-jabber is irritating, though amusing, all the same!

Oh come on guys its easy!

Play the battles in Tier 10-9-8 and while you wait for the battle to end suicide in a few tier 5-6-7!

Job done! 70 points in 2 hours top!

 

If they promote those kind of trash missions that's how we should treat their game, like trash!

70,points is not enough and you need more than few low tier battles to get 10 points.

I'm glad to have the option of many events in parallel so everyone can pick their own goals in game, but departing from the usual Tank Rewards mission points and making it so much grindier makes no sense - especially when the number of points has a daily limit. December is holiday season, people will be away on vacation or visiting family, so most won't even make it to tier 4.

And what price your time?

 

I don't know about you, but 4-6 hours a day to spend playing WoT is not something I generally have. If you have that free time to kill every single day then more power to you, but most of the rest of us have lives.

 

Also, your maths are still off, if you don't have the premium/reward tanks for the New Toys Mission, but you do have other Tier 8-10 tanks, then you can get the event done in 14 days, not 15. The problems arise when you don't have any of the premium/reward tanks listed AND you also don't have any Tier 8-10 tanks, as I'm sure a lot of players don't, then at that point it's not physically possible to complete the event beyond level 3 regardless if you play every single one of the 24 days of the event.

 

1800 points / 140 points (premium/reward tanks + Tanks at all tiers) = 12.85 (13) days.

1800 points / 130 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks at all tiers) = 13.84 (14) days.

1800 points / 120 points (premium/reward tanks + Tanks up to Tier 9) = 15 days

1800 points / 110 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks up to Tier 9) = 16.36 (17) days.

1800 points / 100 points (premium/reward tanks + Tanks up to Tier 8) = 18 days.

1800 points / 90 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks up to Tier 8) = 20 days

1800 points / 80 points (premium/reward tanks + Tanks up to Tier 7) = 22.5 (23) days

1800 points / 70 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks up to Tier 7) = 25.71 (26) days or up to Level 3 unlocked only by Day 24.

1800 points / 60 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks up to Tier 6) = 30 days or up to up to Level 3 unlocked only by Day 24.

1800 points / 50 points (no premium/reward tanks + tanks up to Tier 5) = 36 days or up to up to Level 2 unlocked only by Day 24.

 

and so on...
