For not being offered something which they wished to buy, apparently. It is quite a strange situation.

Nope. I agree calendar tanks were disapointing and discounts as well, but 4 girls + santa along with loads of blueprits and crewbooks are REALLY nice. We can get prem tanks all year along, but not those crews.

 

I feel for those who bought lots of boxes and have now loads of gold and could not get any real treats from calendar, but there is black market coming, so that extra gold might end up being very handy.

I believe that the OP asks for the same mechanism we had on an earlier event : to add tanks on a "wishlist" to decide later if they were worth it - once the defender/t59/e25/t44-100/kv2r/ etc ... did not appear.

You got a free santa claus as compensation..

Now move on.. 

(who imo looks quite sexy compared to other Santa Clauses:harp:)

 

Oh and some easy missions to get a free T7 premium tank.

Free XP boosters

Tons of credits through the Christmas event

A tank crew of maidens

etc etc

 

@OP:

I can complain a lot about many things that WG does, but not about a lack of generosity atm.

Also keep in mind that the advent calendar very obviously is designed the way it is because WG wants to make money (duh!). Offers being availible only for a short time, knowing that they won't come again soon and not knowing what's gonna come next and whether that might be a more worthy deal for you are all features that are supposed to make you buy something NOW ergo spend more money in the long run. If you knew that in the end of the event you'll definitely get a second chance, you'll only spend money for the most valuable offer(s) in the end, when you will know all the availible offers. It's basically all about making the offers artificially scarce which in the end makes the customers pay more (type 59 G is the best example for this that i can think of).

tldr if they did what you're asking for, WG would basically make the advent calendar's concept significantly less profitable for them (imo).

 

On the other hand I must admit that the way the advent calendar works also draws ppl like me away from the 'event' as I don't like it when I feel like I could regret a purchase afterwards when a better offer might appear later. But I'd say that in terms of revenue, ppl like me are probably the less profitable/desirable type of customer for them (i used to buy premium stuff in this game much more often in the past, in this year all I spend was €6 on lootboxes).

Compensation for what? Did WG sell you broken goods?

So all the offers were so bad that you turned them down but you want another chance at them?

 

If they were that bad then why would you get them if you were given a second chance?

Wait... people thought that WG would put things in the advent calendar that they wanted to buy?

Sooo you are salty cuz you missed some good offers you were interested in buying in the vain hope of getting a Defender/IS-3A/E25/Hype 69 or whatever...
Don't worry! After the success of the prototype Black Market do you really think WG is gonna miss the opportunity to milk you? All that lootbox gold and Frontline credits? Well bend over and get ready to pay 15k gold for E25!

Methinks the phrase "The best of a bad lot" is applicable here; I too had some hopes of some 'special' tank(s) but nothing came to pass so I can only presume that there are some tanks which players were considering picking up but held out (last day WG propaganda etc..)

There were some tanks which came up which I don't have and rarely appear for gold so I bought them.  I didn't expect a second chance.

 

You snooze, you lose.

i wouldnt call it compensation but i like idea to be able to get any tank from calendar for a day or few but it not gonna happen. There was a reason why they sold most new and rare tanks before selling boxes.

 yeah but there was a trick tanks like turtle or buldozer were in calendar before boxes. Yes they were for gold too but how many players had unused gold that time? And there were no point to buy gold since boxes were coming but anyway i guess it will be easier to get them on next calendar.
