This wording seems strange to me.

Block Quote

You are guaranteed to receive the regular Drops (1, 2 and 3), the longer you watch the streams.

 and

Block Quote

Regular Drop 1: World of Tanks gamescom 2020 T-Shirt

Please make it coherent cause the first drop is not the t-shirt, "just" a raffle entry, so the t-shirt is not guaranteed.

Last time this tank was available was during the black market and now if you watch the streams and you're lucky enough you will probably get one. So it's still pretty much rare I would say.

Could be a good idea, for now we're keeping it for the big annual events but you never know!

good point, i always wonder in such moments why he stays away from such events - does the reason fall into WG bucket, or this gentleman chooses this way.

Lets giveaway tank that already everyone has if he wanted to get it. It's 10-years anniversary, right? :D

I will be honest, you should giveaway a key that allows to choose one of X tanks like m41 90 chrysler, shwarzpanzer and something and it would be totally ok for both sides

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

Because while the t-shirt is a chance, there's other things you can win in the first "gate" of watch time :)

Everyone who wants to take part in this are the ones related to taking part in the saving Private (insert name I can barely pronounce) missions :)

That's now how it works, there's no such key that exists and would need a dedicated store. Some of the tanks you mention are not even remotely exclusive or even available recently. This tank on the other hand is not on many accounts due to it's very low availability. But if you don't want a chance at a free tier 8, feel free to not join in drops :) But asking for a different tier 8 for free because you don't like the other you can get for free.... that's a little entitled don't you think? (That is brutal honesty in return).

The low percentage is decided for a good reason, to avoid everyone swarming free tier 8's when they can get plenty of other tier 8s. If you have ever seen other drops or taken part in them, you will see what is usually avaialable. I advise you take the time to consider the value of the items over the full spectrum of the amount of players that get free stuff for watching. 

 

Many people were happy - we have the stats and feedback, most people were irate at not getting drops which were 100% as a result of 3 things - 1) people didn't link their account 2) people were not on EU and 3) They needed to re-log into the game to get the drop (many many many cases were because of this). 

 

With the consumables, you get the same thing, you give those instead of big prize, people complain they only get consumables and not something big. It's lose-lose with an attitude like this. 

 

I am actually unsure of the NA stream, but they did have drops as far as I'm aware but they may have had some technical issues. 

 

Extra note - Has nothing to do with the involvement or non-involvement of a CC, you're linking forum feedback not related to anything other than the last drops and not the active volunteering or participation of a content creator to an event.

Sorry, eekeeboo, he refused to decline his name. I remember a certain large lady and a small person and the fact that he always kept his face in the shadows. The authorities concluded that nothing was missing. Maybe, just maybe, they are working together. He seemed popular, though. A lot of people where entering and exiting from his office, most of the time they seemed to be happy with their dealings with the dude. Also, he seems to always wear a black coat. Maybe that will help the said authorities, but my gut feeling is telling me that the authorities won't do anything to catch him.
