Hello,

 

I saw on wot main page twitch prime drops were coming in June 27, but when I go to find the loot I cant find the next months premium tanks for sale?

 

Does this normally refresh on the first of July or another date, all it says is 'coming soon'

It came and went.  You missed it.  Too bad.

You seem to have misunderstood the 'drop' on the 27th.

It was not a care package drop. It was, instead, a one-off drop you could get for watching the WoT stream on twitch.

The next care package drop will probably arrive sometime around the 5th or 6th of july.

1. If you read the whole article it said that you must have Twitch Prime, and that it must first be linked to your account.

2. It then said that you had to have completed two missions prior to this weekend.

3. The article then laid out a series of times over the weekend when community contributors would be streaming live games on Twitch, and that if you logged on to watch the games, with your linked game account, then there was a chance that you would get a drop via a Twitch notification.

 

4. The whole thing was utterly mismanaged by War Gaming and an almost complete failure with players getting more and more irate. The drops were set by the marketing department at much too low a percentage.

 

5.There were a few people who got two crates with goodies in, there were a couple who got a SuperPershing. However there were 23,000 watching eekeebo and the drop rate was pathetic and caused a huge degree of anger.

 

6. WG would have done much better to have made the prizes in the crates smaller ie a few consumerables and made the drop rate something like 33%, but of course they did not. I cannot imagine anyone will now ever bother again if only about five players out of twenty three thousand get a drop.

 

7. Also the NA server stream was (a) poor and (b) no drops at all and the audience fell to 4,000.

 

TLDR you missed absolutely nothing

As a clan mate recommended to me - Just turn it on in the background, put the quality to lowest and mute it and then go look later if you won.

 

That way you don't waste your time.

But then the habitual complainers wouldn't have anything to complain about.

Oh, wait, they literally complain about being given stuff for free all the time...

It was something of an experiment but they  would have been better off giving a little thing to everyone who tuned in along with the big drop for the lucky few.

The whiners would still have whined about not getting enough free stuff because WG are greedy (lol, self-awareness?) but probably not as much.

You have to watch the WoT twitch stream for a couple of hours while twitch drops are enabled.

The drops had nothing to do with twitch prime though, everyone could get them.

I got two on the Ekkeeboo stream.

Got none on the tankfest stream the next day.

 

I think where a lot of people went wrong is they never did the missions beforehand
