you get it for 1 (one) battle, and if you want to use them some more, that is going to cost you 75 000 credits for 100 games.

and that you find out only when you have already picked a reward

 

not realy the honest practice

Such a weird thing to do but I'm glad people have made us aware on here, I've not even got T1 yet.

They got me alright. I used my tokens on the styles in the belief that they were permanent. Very downputting.

I guess for a low tier prize a number of one time use styles is acceptable, but it should have been made clear. That is poor communications from WG, something I have to agree is a company failing.

I think so, yes

Celtic would be nice, though

I did the same mistake, to choose the 7 of x300 consumables  would have been so much more worth it!

Does anyone else say 'queue pranger' instead of 'queue pee ranger'?
Or is it just me?

That sounds more like a bug than a deliberate move by WG considering a 100 use of a camo is only 75,000 credits which is nothing to them.

 

Maybe instead of throwing a tantrum you should query it with Support instead and see if it's been reported by others?

"3 Styles: "U.K.", "U.S.A.", "U.S.S.R." (each is valid for 100 battles in a vehicle of the corresponding nation)" is what the article says

In that case, if they're only lasting one battle, it's definitely a bug/mistake. Even more reason to send Support a polite message to make them aware of it so WG can fix it.

Indeed, the choices are a wee bit unbalanced in what they would cost you If you were to buy them in-game.

 

I did some math (assuming no discounts) and the "progression" package is roughly 2500 gold worth (given what similar boosters cost in gold if you buy them in the depot)

 

The "consumables" package is 90,000 credits (and if one were to apply the 400:1 exchange ratio in reverse it's equivalent to 225 gold)

 

Now the "customization package is a bit unwieldy to gauge (since unique crew skins can't be bought) but it certainly doesn't come up to what the "progression" package would be worth. (unless you are a hardcore patriot and absolutely have to have DeGaulle and the others riding on your tanks)

They have been failing since the beginning of "events" and promised several times that "event" information would be improved.

They even made an article about this issue on the website, at a certain time.

It didn't improve....it got worse...  Typical WG

You call it a bug , I call it lack of testing.
