No, I think the crux of the argument is that it annoys a proportion of the people who pay money to WG. If you annoy your paying customers then they are much more likely to become non-paying participants (you can't really call someone who doesn't pay a 'customer' - as the phrase goes: if you're getting a service without paying for it, you're not the customer, you're the product).

 

It's taken me a while (and a lot of money) to come to the same realisation, but I've joined the ranks of "not paying them any more of my hard-earned" - I think they rely on the customer churn to get money out of players in the short term. Maybe it's a more profitable model that way.

 

You are not alone, the tanks in the referral program, and these rewards in tankrewards show that you should not buy premiums from WG.

Premium time is a different matter, but vehicles ... nope.

Maybe something has been lost during translation and a small patch will change things upside down soon but I wonder have you even played the game lately ? 13 pages of ranting ? Are you kidding me?

Do you think players are stupid or so?

 

Selling my M56 scorpion gives me only 1102340 credits for a tank I had to pay 20 euro for

 

So a player who does not pay for the game gets as reward a 20 euro reward tank and a player who paid real mony for the tank gets 1 miljoen credits (and some extra levels, WOW).

That is by no means fair.

 

Is this the way WG thinks you keep your customers happy? 

 


I agree that Wargaming should compensate owners of the tank with its worth in gold.

But at least you can get your 1102340 credits for selling the tank 1st.

That's 1102340 free credits you wouldn't have got in the 1st place.

The way they set this up is fine assuming you have at least a tier 8 because then 1800 points is achievable.

Don't have any of the reward tanks but do have access to tier s 9 and 10 so 130 points per day for me and to be honest 10 games is not that difficult to achieve.

Ok there are problems, in that not everyone can play every day and there is no way to play more on some days and make up the difference.

You have 25 days and I will have to play on 14 of those days giving me 10 days off

Assuming you only have tier 8 you will have to play 20 out of 25 days.

Something is off with their system. Yesterday I made all missions beside new toys and I have 250 points and  not 260. Wtf? And yes, yesterday I looked and I had 130 points.

edit: some huge delay to show points. Now is all right.

I have never EVER seen so many bot tier 6s especially t50-2 for some reason. At one point a tiger was pushing a t50-2 in front of him and the other guy did nothing. This is becoming hilarius. Especially the chat.

A very generous offer. But what about players already owning this tank ?

Are you giving it away because nobody plays that this tank,with 7 days premium along? And what about Defender? Are we getting that for free too?

Of course not. Nobody wants to sell those tanks for free,not this early.

It sucks a bit if you already own it, but if you get to the stage where you can claim it, sell yours (as noted above) and you will get a new one + the credits fro the one sold (no gold comp, unfortunately), this is the same as the last few TankRewards.

 

No need to take the premium time either, you an have 5 garage slots if that is more useful to you, or 3 + 3 days premium

WG made an event with a Tier 7 reward tank that Tier 7 players cannot unlock. That sounds pretty broken to me, your mileage may vary.

 

At the very least WG could have made Tier 7 in the Reindeer Missions worth 20 points instead of 10, or they could have given each of the Advent Calendar missions a 10 point value towards the Tank Rewards event seeing as how both events are running at the same time for the same period, but apparently that's just thinking logically, and we all know from bitter experience that WG don't do logic.

Would have been nice to even have the luxury of being able to make that choice...

I tell you what is broken. Its a discriminatory event. People that dont have it gets a free tier VII. People that are actually your customers gets a slap in the face , in the form of no compensation or 1 million credits if they dismount modules and sell their tanks. Either give the same prize to everybody ( more choices, or gold compensation so everyone gets what they want or some kind of token or coupon that can only be used on tier VII tanks ), or better dont make such events at all.

No one gets a slap in the face.

The number of people who own the tank is insignificant compared with the number of people who don't. 

Stop demanding that the world revolves around you. Stop behaving like a hyperbolic, entitled, spoiled brat.

Here is an updated guide (for the peeps that own one or more of the tanks listed under the New Toys mission)

 

a. 2 battles in a tier 10 tank

b. 3 battles in a tank from tier 2 to 9 (whatever you like)

c. 5 battles in Emil 1951/AE Phase I/Renegade (one of them or all, your choice) 

 

Grand total: 10 battles per day, so you should finish it in 14 days.

 

If you don't own one of the tanks from the New Toys missions, you can use whatever tank you like. The easy mode is using a tier 9 tank for 8 battles.
