Hey guys,

Was linked on SA forums:
http://historynetshop.com/ag1201.html

Does anyone know if the code you get with that would work on the EU client, or is it for US client only?

Cheers!

From what it says is the retail version you can also buy in Europe.

Don't now how much usually cost that magazine, but they charge you 10$ for it, I got the retail version for 7.5€ wich is the same

Didn't even realise that there was a boxed edition. :)

Can you apply the codes from the retail version to an already active account? It appears to be cheaper than actually buying gold off the website, bizarrely enough.

Ello Rabbit  :)

you can apply one of the codes in the retail box to an already active account which gives you a weeks premium, 2000 gold, 50000 credits and a free Micro Maus with garage slot.

the other code you get in the box for 3 days premium and 1000 gold can only be used with a brand new account.

Where did you get the retail version? A cursory scouting of google has turned up nothing.

EDIT: Never mind, ordered it off the US site for about £9 (inc P&P)

The play.com one has 1 week premium vs 1 month.

That is because the offer in the OP is not the EU retail package and contains less gold.

Have you got the code? It works?
One month premium account, 750 in-game gold, the premium tank PzKpfw 38H735 (f), and a free garage slot?
All this for 10€?

(:

Do anyone know if the codes from Armchair General work on EU server?

Just to close this matter, i ordered the mag on the off-chance the code would be valid (i live in the UK) and at worst i would get a seemingly interesting read. Just got a very apologetic e-mail to say that they have noticed i am not from the US and are very sorry that they have discovered the bonus codes are only valid on NA server, they have fully refunded my purchase but have still sent me the mag - bonus. What a quality company and great customer service. Full text below;

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your recent purchase of the January 2012 issue of Armchair General magazine which included the World of Tanks bonus disc. As one of our overseas customers, we work hard to ensure the products we send you are exactly the same as the one advertised on our website. When the two don't match up, we want to make every effort to guarantee your satisfaction.

In this case, due to an unforeseen technical issue, we have discovered this version of World of Tanks will only work on the North American server. Therefore, we are going to credit your account with the full purchase amount. Since the shipment is already on its way to you, we hope you at least enjoy the magazine.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can offer you a universal product in the future.

Sincerely,

HistoryNetShop Customer Service
