Well, can't say I was impressed with the format. Like most sports I find watching others play rather boring; not your problem. So I had Twitch running in the background sound off, from start to finish. This got me the loot and mission on the 27th. but for having the whole thing on from start to finish only one mission given, not two, which makes me wonder how were you meant to use the final code handed out on the 28th if there was no mission 2 in the mnu?

 

Watched and listened to the whole of the 28th, no mission 2 from that, but at least it was interesting.

 

I used the code given at the end, where it was said you needed both missions done. However I I tried it anyway as I wouldn't know if mission 2 secretly followed mission 1 automatically?

NM I got the code wrong, and reward received

TF2020youdidgreat if anyone missed it

Does somebody know how long will the code be viable?

The missions went on for a few days, so I'd think that one will be a few days. The tank rents were quantity limited, but buy the TOG don't rent it.

It's just paint for your tanks. As I understand it, you can put Camouflage on, then this on top, & you still get the Camo bonus. But i think it doesn't give you a Camo Bonus on its own. But these are historically realistic colour paints

When was the brawl? Or did I miss it. It said it would take over random battles? And how do you chose who you wanna support

 

They were doing missions in random battles, so it wasn't the "typical" brawl you were probably expecting. The winners will be announced today, and they (the winners) will do the giveaways on their own channels I guess, so you don't have to support anyone. At least that's how I interpreted the article.

So basically no chance of getting the skorp, type or strv 81...honestly why did I have my Hope's up

 

That News item was really vague, but makes sense it would only be a few giveaways, not one to each "follower". That would have been a LOT of tanks! Did anyone get who won?

Watched the entire event live on twitch and later wished I had done it on youtube instead.

the twitch feed kept stuttering twice it dropped completely and as the default quality setting was on auto the image blurred at times.

Possibly dropping quality to keep the live feed running.

It also meant that when the code was announced at the end it was really difficult to read, I paused it and even magnified the image.

got TF2020 ok but the YOU DID GREAT bit I couldn't read and of course when I unpaused it the code was gone.

The Youtube feed was much clearer but of course when I watched their recording the video stops before the code was given.

Whining over ;)

 

Liked the show a lot wasn't that interested in the death matches but they were useful as you could take a short break make a coffee etc.

The rest of the show was top notch its unlikely to be repeated in other years but great to see.

Watching on Youtube would have been better since they were apparently recording as they streamed you could walk away come back and wind the video back a little to see what you missed.

Twitch was much less user friendly.

Yep, it was frustrating on Twitch. I only watched it there as I discovered it was free with my Prime account, so I could actually get these Monthly giveaways :)

 

But I still have no idea of the results of the Brawl 2, or how the giveaways tied to it went. Nothing as of yet on the WOT News Feed

If you use the TF2020YOUDIDGREAT code without finishing the last road to tankfest mission what do you get? I got no premium account for my account and couldn't see anything else either.

Highlight was the Eekeeboo stream with Skill. Dont think I have ever laughed so much watching a stream as with that one.

 

But, while Friday was litterly watching paint dry and Saturday just regular WOT streams, the Sunday was amazing. Very well put together and loved seeing all the other musea from all over the world and getting an insight and comments about the Bovington. I made notes about a few of those musea I certainly will visit when I am near so the Sunday was another highlight for me for sure!

I redeemed the "TF2020YOUDIDGREAT" code yet I didn't receive anything and yes I've finished both tankfest missions.

What's going on?

I know it's already a lost cause but can a forum mod please check upon this one? Not that I really want to look at Eek's head all day in my tanks but it bugs me as well. Did both missions and activated the code right after the stream. Still waiting for the premium days. Thanks

Well i sent a ticket and the meaning as i get it is that "if you got it ok, if not maybe next time and if you get not bugged again". The process was automated so they can't do smth manually. It's just wasting of time, move on and if you wish to participate in the future just cross fingers for better luck! ;)

 

Edit: WG support team sent me a msg today that the rewards have been added to my account after they checked the issue with their apologies. Cheers support team! :)

Well, I tried this myself and got an answer very quickly and surprisingly it wasn't an automated one. They unfortunately can't help as the event is already over. How convenient...
