Nice addition to the existing specials and missions - probably going to grab myself a Type 64!

Might park it for a while till the teams get to be somewhat less than 75% BT-7 A on BOTH sides.

bring out a tank that will stomp BT-7As to complete mission - that's my plan.​

 

but what tank? only tier 3 I have is Cruiser II.

what's BT-7A's tier, gun, mobility, etc. anyway?

 

edit: I read on the mission that it's a tier 3.

 

btw, I noticed tier 8 premium tanks are only 15% off. anyone know when was the last time a tier 8 premium was 30% off?

and for those who can answer this - should we still expect tier 8 premiums to get 30% off or are they never going to get 30% off again?

I like what they have done and their thinking.

Might help stop bot accounts from obtaining one maybe...........not that there's any issue of BOTs on the ASIA server so they tell us.....:popcorn:

Hello players.

I am sorry for the misinformation here.. I'll explain what happened.

 

The issuing of the BT-7A is a global thing..

So the news announcing the BT-7A was a supplied by Minsk as a global announcement..

Which stated "login to get the free tank" .. as this is how things are meant to be working on all servers.

 

However ..

How the tank is issued, is programmed by each server..

So I decided to alter the issuing criteria from the suggested default "login" to "login , play a game, get in the top 10 by exp"

 

The reasoning for the alterations from normal are as follows.

1. Other servers just have a "login" request , as its a "gift" and gifts should be free not earned.

2. I consider making players play 1 game to obtain the free tank .. acceptable, and don't think its asking too much..

3. Inactive players playing a game to get the free tank, is more beneficial to the server/WG Asia than inactive players loging in to get the free tank. (Sorry, just facts)

4. We also run the "finish in the top 10 by exp" to prevent bad play. Otherwise players would play one game suiciding into the nearest lake, or rushing to their deaths.

 

Due to WG Asia not running the default "login" to get the tank, and instead running with "login and play 1 game while finishing in the top 10 by exp" the global news was incorrect.

 

I'll request the alteration to the news to be made.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Regards
Tan

There isn't an issue of large amounts of bots on the server, this is correct.

To say there is no bots would be silly, but there is very few bots..

 

There is however, a too high level of manually played / badly played accounts, for the purpose of account leveling / grinding, which needs continued work to lower.

Tan

Any tier 3 tank with either a bigger derp round (Cruiser II) or an accurate dpm gun will own the BT-7A with the right tactics.

  • Mobility is decent straight line speed, weaker hull traverse than the BT-7, slow turret traverse (feels like a KV-1)
  • No armor to speak of
  • Derp gun that deals anything from 50-105 HE damage on another BT-7A. AP rounds are less unreliable pen wise but more consistent damage wise, but seriously - HE is the easier and safer option.

The maximum discount on tanks above tier 8 is 15%.

Never has there been any discounts on T8 and above, above 15% on the Asia server.. And I believe this is the case on all servers.

 

With the one exception.

The "evolution of tanks",promotions, which promote one T10 tree, which contains discounts of 30% for tier 8 and above's within the promoted tree.
This is one tree, every 2 weeks.

 

This is usually going, and has been going for around 18 months now.

It stops occasionally when it gets in the way of other large promotions like Xmas, then resumes again..

 

It is still running, and there is no current plans to cancel it in the short or mid future.

 

The last being the Tier 10 113 which ended 7th August.

The next being the Tier 10 Object 261 starting 21st August.

 

Regards
Tan

oh, so the 112 was 30% off? I wouldn't have noticed as I was inactive and already own the 112.

or is the 30% off only on the standard tanks and premium tier 8s never had 30% off?
