I don't care about trying to "hunt" some gold spam enthusiasts.

I can do that in every tier X battle.

Lovely: all the streams are during work hours. Because, why would the working peeps should get any chance for the event....

 

Now seriously, we live in EU. The picked hours are during the work hours. If this would have been a NA stream event, that would have been fine. But as it's an event for the EU .... the hours make no sense.

No, they make a lot of sense.

Less people having a chance to play = less people getting the stuff.

Ez WG logic.

No. You're not required to buy anything to enjoy the event and you even get the chance to obtain paid content just by tuning in and watching the stream.

The T77 can only be dropped in the Special Footlockers. Those can be bought or obtained by destroying the WT E 220.

If you don't think the event sounds like something for you, you're free to pass of course, but maybe try it out first. :) It might surprise you.

Guess that i am going to skip again my monthly premium account. As for buying prem tanks... the policy remains to not buy. I am so looking forward to the moment when each country in EU will follow Belgium's example and outlaw the lootboxes. And hopefully, microtransactions, too. The gaming industry needs its wake-up call and a proper, modern legislation should be in place to protect the youngsters and certain adults.

 

P.S.: kind of hard to try getting a special lootbox, when you are at work...Because your streamers are streaming during work hours.

Those times are not that great, but oh well, I can catch a part of the event at least.

If you already have one of those tanks, will we get the gold value or credits ? It has always been gold when spending real money but want to be sure this time.

This whole playing at a certain time of day thing is so stupid. I can't play at those times so this event is completely useless to me. 

Make them like FL or SH were you can play a much wider window of time. 

The only people who think his is good are disconnected from reality streamers, kids with no school and no lifers.

 

Edit; the rest looks fun, just the timed stuff is annoying.

I bet there will be multiple bugs in the mode and there will be some exploit making the mode absolute BS to play within 24 hours.

Shame it's during working hours, instantly disqualifies a large part of the playerbase from participating.

 

As for the rest, seems like a fun event! Glad they aren't introducing the abomination for real again into the game :D

Didnt quite understand how the grab key will work, but if its something like be the first to loot the corpse its probably going to be some kill steal and toxicity through the roof fiesta , just what Wargaming loves the most. Also , i dont watch streams , because i am a streamer. Also im not going to pay for Twitch Gaming if it is required like i understand from the article. Enjoy your event, i dont think i will.

If Wargaming truly went on this path, that everything interesting will be only be obtainable for money, i guess , after 10 years , it is really the time to move on to other games.

There are personal missions with key reward.
