My question is have you investigated creators of this mod for possible plot to harm reputation of your company..by introducing pure gambling (criminal activity in some countries), and by disbalance of gameplay indicating incompetence and/or money grabbing rush.?

It will be remembered,damage is done.

The belated FAQ to this event makes me wonder if the event is not quite as popular as WG would have liked it to be ...

I must admit that I was quite unimpressed at the start, but having played it for a while I find it okay ... ish. I doubt I will go on playing it when I got the 3k bonds, but you have to give it to them that it is a novel concept, what with playing against a human-controlled boss. And it has been presented quite nicely - I really like the light and weather effects on the well-known maps, and the tanks look cool. Also, getting the bonds - which are really the only incentive for me to play more than just a couple of matches - is reasonably manageable. I just wish you would get a Harrier Chest even when losing if you are the top or second best player on your team - it is a wee bit frustrating to end up with more or less nothing to show for it if you play well and still lose. As to playing the Waffenträger, I must admit I find it more challenging than I thought - if the T-55 organize themselves reasonably well, I find it quite hard to win. I guess it's a combination of players getting wise to it and me playing badly. I have also some small suspicion that the Wafferträger's mobility may have been nerfed a little, but that is probably just tinfoil hat stuff.

Fear not, ensuring compliance of our games with applicable law is a priority for us. The footlockers mechanics have been set up with accordance with current law.

To be entirely honest with you, we wanted to make sure that everyone is equally informed, as we've seen many questions when the mode was first released.

If you don't like gacha/lootboxes, don't buy them, it's that simple.

Stop complaining about how other people spends money, it's cringe.

How hard is it to give the T55s a bit of a buff/the WT a nerf to make the mode a bit fairer?

So you do know how to explain stuff properly! Why not do so in the initial announcement?

 Are you sure their  legislative experts checked possible repercusions ?

This is  an offering to gamble to a children(many of them).

Its is not free right to chose, when children are invoked.

Its is like we say it is a free for children to chose or not to chose some thing ment for adults.

So an offering of gambling to a children has been approved by your experts?

What happens with unused WT keys, considering 2+ min waiting times and no reward for playing it after you get all collection items?

Childrens are not supposed to have access to credit cards, hence they are not supposed to buy anything without their parent's permission.
And if their parents are ok with gambling, or don't care about what their son spends money for, it's just bad parenting, not WG's fault.

Hey, was wondering, I finished the whole collection yesterday, and and for some reason, the harriers/engineers boxes can't be re-rolled anymore? Why is that? Like there is no mention in the article about this, was this intentional or a bug? For example if I get 25k credits as the first rewards I definitely would like to reroll it but that ain't possible anymore if I completed the collection, which is sad, thanks and hope for an answer. :(:unsure:

Why did WG not give boxes to all the T55 team with a WTF kill? Limiting it to just 5 seems mean on the last 2.

And you can play it just fine whitout spending a dime, like a lot of people do.
No one forces you to buy lootboxes.

Actually, that is a good thing, means that players that just go afk/boting etc and just do nothing all game, every game, you won't get rewarded for doing nothing. You want rewards, you gotta put some effort into it, gl :)

One thing is offering to sell  product of any kind to a  custommer

 

The other thing is to offer a gambling run to a custommer.

Many of those custommer been chidren below 16.

 

 

EDIT. I am criticising openly, but also trying to help WG to, they surely can have their bussines made on more moraly healthier foundations.

Nobody needs this.
