Dear all,

 

Presently, more than one hundred millions europeans are staying at home due to the coronavirus battle strategy amongst european countries.

 

What if WG declares its support to the overall effort by allowing players to have all exisiting battle modes available everyday (frontline included) so everyone staying home can spend their plentiful free time playing their favourite WoT battle mode?

 

And what if WG starts a premium shop coronavirus battle campaign with discounts on everything so people can enjoy WoT while spending some money?

 

The coronavirus battle will remain active for at least 8 to 16 weeks, come on WG do something to support your faithful customers while they face these hard times.

 

Thanks.

And where do you think most of the WG staff is? As with local laws etc changing on the hour. They can't fix most stuff as fast as pr the norm. Nor add that many events, making sure it all runs smooth.

It seems that WG started long before the quarantine. All these marathons for no-lifers. Now we can do those and get tonks for free. :)

If you post in it though, you're not allowed to post anywhere else in the forum for 14 days.

The servers will be a problem. There are plenty of events going on at the moment.

However a week or two of free premium with a #StayatHome hashtag would be really appreciated.

There is plenty to be grinded atm with ranked, tank rewards and battle pass.

Ok now I'm starting to get annoyed! I have to WORK from home, as does my wife. We are both quite busy with our jobs. No problem so far. Now school and daycare is closed so the kids are running around as well. Fine, we'll work a bit in the evening and weekends...

Now the school thinks education should not stop, so apperantly we now also have to be teachers and they should do homework. 

 

Finally after a loooooong day, I read **** dozens of threads asking for more content because of the corona vacation.

Chill down, WG never was sooo generous to give a month or two of premium for free.

 

But, it'll be really appreciated if it does though.

Thats not my point Splash, I couldn't case less about premium time, missions, marathons or whatever. I am annoyed that it seems that a lot of people now have a lot of free time because of the virus, while my already limited free time is reduced even further.

What country increases the work time while corona exist? Where you live? 

In my country, everything is off, except supermarkets, hospitals, and drugstores.

140,000 sent home from work in Ireland last week. Some will get two weeks pay, most will not. It's reckoned that another 140,000 will join them next week...................things are getting quite serious. :ohmy:

Hopefully you will continue to get paid.:honoring:

Ok fair enough I'm lucky that I still get paid. I have a few deadlines for project proposals coming up that require more than normal amount of work. In addition I now have to do daycare & teaching as well. 

My wife's job is to judge applications for unemployment benefits. Guess it's pretty obvious her workload is through the roof right now.

So yeah. Most importantly still healthy, but not very happy.

In my country, 17 thousand are infected, and 1 thousand person have already lost their lifes...

It's a serious international problem.

 

Many people are under heavy pressure, especially the nurses that are taking care of these sick people...

 

Always be thankful for being healthy mates.

Best regards to all, take care and stay healthy.

Explaining you situation is not ranting....it's just explaining your situation. It is interesting to hear how people are coping. :)

In Europe, right now, more than 300 million persons are locked down at home, to prevent the virus spread.

All I want to see for the duration of the pandemic is in-game gold changed into little toilet rolls. It seems to be the new global currency after all..
