It's more than an offer. It's more than a simple special. It's pretty packages that make it easy to earn XP.

GREAT!

Many thanks. If I purchase it for a friend, does the limitation apply? I mean will it count for my or his account?

WG please make it optional to use the 5x booster. Sometimes I want to grind credits with my favourite prem tanks and not eat kaku with stock vehicles.

... or separate them to smaller packs, to 15 or 25 packs with the ability to activate them when we like.

Every time this x5 budles are on sale people on forum ask on/off possiblity and WG just ignore it.

And I personally believe they would probably sell them more if there would be possibility to turn on/off this missions (at least once per 6 hours or similar limitation).

 

I would buy one bundle to have it for next time I decide to grind some line but now without possibility to disable those missions - no thanks.

We just found the guy who made map bans available only per 4 hours, same with mission rerolls.

Jesus, why at all do you need such limitations. Ok, map bans each 30 minutes, not 0 seconds to prevent DOS attacks, mission rerolls once per 1 hour since they don't work properly and YOU CAN REROLL TO THE EXACT SAME MISSION + REWARD

I still have the missions from the previous month and they will be spent uselessly as I have no left tanks to grind.

 

Until this day, I wouldn't care much about the "on/off" bit but now I see it is required.

 

This time I'll pass it and save my hard-earned money.

Nah, they limit the way one can play too much.

Either allow manual activation of 5x XP or no thank you. I don't care or wish to spend money to waste 5x while playing premium tanks. 5x is a good idea otherwise, just needs better implementation like the other boosters.

 

And allow them to be used (upon manual activation) in Frontlines (one 5x XP per tank). I know it would be a bit too generous, as FL can give more XP (per tank), but a FL game also lasts a lot longer. So don't be greedy WG, and do this one like you did a good thing for consumables (90 sec recharge in game).

So you buy this package, and then "the factors that make it less easy to make xp" come into play: game crashing, being bottom tier, or 1 15-0 defeat. When you can just buy boosters for anniv tokens or get them from daily rewards. 

Waste of coding time when other things could be fixed....

I have 30 of these. Forces you to stop playing.

 

Make an on/off button.

 

 

 

And fix the blinking chat at every start of the game. Looks cheap and buggy for a game WoT's size.

I have no tank to grind at the moment so I'm using 40 of these (tank reward and twitch prime) missions for nothing.

I'll not buy 75 of them of you don't put a 'on/off' switch!

We do not have plans to introduce an on-off switch to this bonus. However other features in WoT function similarly to how you are proposing - you can enjoy those for the time being.

Thank for the confirmation Sael. Likewise I have no plans of ever buying these 5x then. We can be just as stubborn as WG.

I appreciate your honesty, but this statement only confirms that WG doesn't care what we think. This particular adjustment won't take more than a day or two of development since the functionality is already there. But WG doesn't look at this as an opportunity to increase the player-base satisfaction with minimum effort. I am curious to see when this ignorance will backfire at you and the cash flow will decrease dramatically. And then maybe you will finally wake up.

This is exactly why I am not going to pay WG a single penny until this is fixed.

OK to flesh out the feedback a bit more. Have bought them in the past - it pissed me off having to pussy-foot around only doing single-wins on premiums until it was used up - especially when some sort of marathon/event was on where I would like to use a premium over and over. Haven't bought them since - and won't unless an 'on/off' of some sort is implemented.

You have no plans to implement it, then I (and others it seems) have no plans to buy it.

These x5 's are useful when grinding a tank/line , as the TotT kinda proves

(except the current one.. who want to grind an LT line that has become obsolete because of EBRs? )

And WG does sell x5's for the TotT, what more proof do you need? 

 

But to grind a line you need to have lotsa silver/free xp available

One way, besides buying packages like Fort Knox, is to play gold tanks (with boosters),  and there those x5's are less than optimal.

 

in my opinion it would be better if

they could be activated like the Personal Reserves boosters for 1, 2 or more hours

OR

if they could be applied after a win like with the current five x3 multiplier we've got.

 

the ''always on'' is wasteful, like the Berlin tokens were.. 0 x 15 = 0 :(
