If the mission was completed and the rewards are already recieved, will the garage slot remain even if the sherman was already gone?

Easter Special aren't worth the time they spent making the announcement.

 

One token per day, for 5 days, to get a tank for 3 days.

Can't be bothered unless we get to keep the garage slot.

So.  Do we get to keep the garage slot?

The M4 was one of the three tanks offered as a never to be seen , brought or sold again package when WOT went to Open Beta .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Not as it is stated in the video . While RU have them . They were never offered as a Package to RU . The statement of " totally exclusive " is the crux .

 

It is a source of constant battle . Without that statement I'd doubt there would be any discussion of the 3 tanks offered .

Rented for 3 days? Bad joke, not interested. Don¨t you think it's a little bit late for April Fools? You guys are doing your best to destroy this game. I will be so happy when I get back to Ameica so that I can play with my NA account. They don't screw their players there like SEA server seems to do.

If you have the M4A2E4 in your garage and do the 5 win a day for the token for the next 5 days, you will only get the garage slot. No credits or gold will be given as compensation. Which sucks......

From the mission rewards at least; "Slots in the Garage 1, M4A2E4 Sherman (days of rental: 3)", it looks like we get to keep the Garage Slot at least. So that's something?

 

Less than the French and the British rewards, yes, but still better than the Japanese one. Hahaha.

So other than chocolate THERE ARE NO REAL SPECIALS FOR EASTER? Not even x3 for the first win of the day? WG are you trying to drive people to other tank games? I'm guessing its working.

 

Most of Aprils large activities are later in April.

WGL grand finals in Warsaw, and the servers 3rd anniversary.

 

View PostBlackPaw, on 02 April 2015 - 07:40 PM, said:

why there is no tree focus anymore???

these events are always <tier 7....

We need real events...

 

The T10 spotlight's are different.

They do go up to discounts on a tier 10, but .. only one tier 10.. And only twice a month.

So it usually generates a lot of complaints that our weekly specials are smaller, when we have weekly, fortnightly and monthly specials overlapping.

 

I'll try to install some for may again, and then i'll switch them back off again when there is complaints on the multiple smaller overlapping specials.

Permanent premium tanks are permanent, yes.
We can sell TLV's in game and in the premium shop, but have no intention of doing so at the moment.

No. The M6 was part of the preorder tanks (as per your video link), which wont be reissued as it was stated as such.

http://wiki.wargamin.../en/Tank:M6A2E1

 

The M4 Sherman was a gift for beta testers on EU/NA, but doesn't have exclusivity on the Asia server.

The statement is from Victor the owner : )
So when he states they (the preorder tanks, including the M6) wont  be reissued in any form, then that's for all servers.

Correct, which is why we can move to issuing larger premiums, obtainable more easily.

Garage slot is worth 300 gold (150 on sale) works for me - if I didn't already have an M4A2E4 I would get it from this mission then sell it after two days and keep the credits and the garage slot :) (unless it's unsaleable as rental)

 

TLV's can be deleted by the player, but not sold.

M6A2E1 can be bought in CN server.

 

After the 3 day M4A2E4 trial, will there be any plans to extend the time period?

No. Paid tank is forever.  (BUT NOT THE SHERMAN SPECIAL WHICH WE HAD TO WORK HARD TO GET MONTHS AGO PLAYING EVERY DAMN NATION&gt;).

 

It seems it is a 3 day tank or if its a permanent one like gold camo then it is very poorly worded... 'reward will only be available to play FOR 3 days'. the word 'for' is a misnomer and the word 'only' is unnecessary and creates anxiety with the idea that the reward is ONLY FOR 3 days. Ergo people have to wait FOR 3 days BEFORE they get the tank. This is Easter after all and it took 3 days for the stone to be rolled away. Thus it seemed like the drum roll and red carpet was rolling out for people to wait for 3 days for the 2nd coming of the Sherman tank  since we already fought tooth and nail to get this prize tank months ago when we had to play every nation to get it.

 

Rewards:

  • USA Tree Token
  • 1x Small Repair Kit

Note: This mission can only be completed once per day.

 

USA Tech Tree Focus

Obtain 5 USA Tree Tokens.

Rewards:

  • M4A2E4 Sherman
  • Garage Slot

 

Notes:

  • The M4A2E4 reward will only be available to play for 3 days after completion of this mission.
  • Players who already possess the M4A2E4 will receive a free Garage Slot as a reward

 

PS with no x5 xp or even x3 incentive and no 30% or at least a miserable 15% off for over tier 8 these days are you hoping many more players will leave ??? It seems insane to treat customers like this especially with all the stupid nerfs we've had and the pen nerfs to come to ruin our tier 10 meds we took so long to grind and also forked out big dollars at gift shop to convert some gold and get extra credits to get the 6 million $60 -70 Aus dollars pixel tank. Crazy.

Personally I'm not keen on TLVs in premium shop - the opportunity for misunderstandings/misclicks on getting a tank for perm/temp would be a headache.

 

Also do players who do NOT possess the M4A2E4 receive the garage slot permanently?

Mike, Tan mentioned before that the x3/x5 weekend for us is coming later in Apr. Similarly the tier 8-10 discounts are also coming later in the month of Apr 2015. Hope that cheers you, I'm not looking forward to the x3/x5 myself.

 

My personal take (as the owner of several TX mediums): Pen nerfs on tier X meds are long overdue. It's ridiculous for meds to have the pen they've had for so long, it killed most of the heavies' gameplay in game. Just fyi, meds are the easiest lines to grind total exp wise - do a sum total of the exp and you will find it to be true. Also, you paid money for the convenience. WG delivered on that convenience. I think you're crazy for thinking WG owes you further on that transaction imo.

That is irrelevant.

 

What Mr. Kyslyi said in the Youtube video regarding the Preorder package:

"...or to buy them in any other manner."

 

If WG is a public listed company in the US, the SC is going to have a field day. ;)

IMO the exclusivity contract has been voided.
