How come we have events for football but nothing for Eurovision, despite Eurovision being more popular and more watched in the UK.??
 

Why do football fans get special treatment? Not everyone likes football here.

Wow, what an emtpy empty (fail typo, thanks, teriaksu :P) month.

 

Wasn't there supposed to be a 7v7 mode soon again or does WG need more time to mess with it so that it finally get unplayable?

Alas, it looks like no special EU soccer championship event like we had previously, I really liked those. I am pretty certain we had one every two years since the first one.

 

In response to Saxsan4. Although the Eurovision song festival attracted 183 million viewers (mostly in European countries and Australia) it is a non-event to many others, including me. I suspect a lot of the viewers are drawn by all the spectacle and hoeha, not by the quality of songs offered. Furthermore, it seems this event is very nichy.  Although there are people who do not like or even hate soccer, I bet you the number of viewers when there is a World Cup Soccer event will be a much larger number. I looked it up for you, the finale in 2018 was viewed by more than 3,5 BILLION people. So that's why. Also, the Worldcup is a true Mondial event. Everyone understands which Worldcup is referred to, you don't even have to add that it's soccer.

I don't like football and I despise Eurovision so if these events are not really intrusive I can live by.

 Father's Day Special: emblems, decals and inscriptions:trollface:

It is suitable for children's day special, don't think so fathers care about drawings for children.

 

I wish Beavis & Butthead fans special.

Pretty underwhelming.

 

Tank wars  - non-event

Steel hunter - who cares

TotT - nerfed so much I hardly played the lines last month

 

Some discounts for D-Day the pick of the bunch.

Eurovision is nothing more but rotten politics. It's pure trash.

They really went with the new Top of the Tree that every single person here dislikes. It's a true talent to ruin fan favorite events.

The price reduction on the current TotT is equal or less to what we can get in certain events so I don't see the incentive to grind certain tech trees, especially with the rather mediocre XP missions one gets. The last real iteration of TotT was the best imo where you had two overlapping ones, even despite losing the rental vehicles.

 

As for the football thing, I really do not care about football and just google the teams before I set my prediction. Back in the day you could earn styles with that but I guess nowadays you will only get those garbage looking green/orange, white, black ones to keep the tradition of nerfing every single event in 2021.

 

As per usual recently as well there has been no fun minigame mode like Karl, Pixel-Foch or IS-8 Ball. The last we got was that abortion of a "fun" mode which was the uber grind of turbo-Sturmtiger, a disgustingly awful event that made me want to have a three arty game instead.

 

Tank rewards was replaced by tank wars, it would seem, a total non-event that does not deserve much attention, as Badz370 aptly pointed out.

 

It seems that we won't even get a half-assed AI mode like the Road to Berlin one where you played annoying battles for a long time to get your hands on the worst IS-clone ever, but hey, at least a T7 prem.

Any info/leaks about Battle Pass season V (to be introduced)? I mean goods for tokens, reward vehicles or at least does anyone know the day we will get some info about those things mentioned? 

Idk if spend tokens now or wait and spend them later, Im just curious. :confused:

 

Why I ask like this? because the website says:

1. "While Season IV finishes on June 23 at 02:30 CEST (UTC+2), Season V will be announced shortly after."

2. And it also says "Check the news on the portal for fresh information around mid-June."

 

Well is it "shortly after" the 23rd, or "mid-June" (mid-June for me is from 13th to 17th of June)...

 

So now how does this work?

 

Also if Season IV ends on 23.6., will I be able to spend tokens on current vehicles after this date?

big fat middlefinger towards community and new players.

yes.... this was asked 1 million times. just search before post. tokens are accumulative and can be spend until dec/19

quote:

"The "Items for Tokens" section of the in-game Store will open on March 15 (after the start of Season 4) and will close on December 19, 2021. You can purchase in-game items for Tokens until the specified date."

WG please anwser your playerbase, why did you nerf the ToTs so badly.. 

We all liked the Idea of 2 ToTs with a different startingdate so overlapping each other. The 30% made it worth to wait and play the event for a good discount. Now with 3 ToTs you only give us 15% discount for ttier VI and higher!...Why?

Was it realy that bad for your economics?  Yes I know we get some extra missions/ XP but there are other events giving beter rewards.

Now the ToT  event is only worth to play for players who still needs to buy tier 5 or lower tanks to get them with the old appreciated  discount of 30%.

For the other players is wating for other events a beter option if they wanna get a good discount..

After your May surprise, changing ToT to this new format, many players complained about is, telling you it was bulls**t nerfing the discounts. I thought it was only for May events and you would return to the older or original ToT format... but now a new month with a nerfed ToT?

 

In short: WG can you please explain us why you did change the ToT at all?

                     Why ignore the comments of your playerbase again? 

                     Please change it back to a 30% discount so its worth to make effort in these events again.

I was hoping Top of the Tree would be fixed this month, but it seems that was in vain. I'll keep waiting for a reason to start playing again.
