Where in the world did anyone get the idea of mega prizes at 1USD every time?  For that buck, you get SOMETHING, often more than what you could comparatively get in the regular shop.  There isn't even anything available to me for that amount in the shop right now... cant even compare!   At 1USD I would't expect discounts.  lol.

 

THIS IS A LOW COST option to the shop wrapped in a Secret Santa feel good marketing wrapper.  Enjoy it.

Hmm...I will not join this event because is against the Gambling Ordinance in my place and I do not like to risk at christmas a fine of $10000 AND up to 3-months imprisonment for the Frist conviction. :confused:

 

Its not gambling when you receive something guaranteed you idiot!

Of course they do not tell you the odds of winning any of the "gifts"

So there's no way to know if there's a 1%, 0.1% or 0.01% chance of winning a tank for example.

Then calling the rewards "gifts" is outright hypocritical, when you pay to get something it's not a gift at all!


 

Once again the spirit of Christmas is betrayed for the sake of extra profit and greed, this time in a lottery that doesn't even let you know what the odds are

This might be legal, it doesn't make it right.

Unless you cleared them, scroll up.  The notification icon is in the top right corner.

Really i quite like the secret santa idea if there is a realistic chance of a bonus payout, eg. the tanks and much larger gold and or premium time bonuses, but so far, from 4(going on 5) pages of text the only true bonus i've seen anyone post is a 30 day premium, which is a significant value bonus. And i realise of all the many secret santa players only an insignificant number are forum users, and of those that do use the forums they arn't neccisarily going to post, but it would be nice to hear somebody got something interesting / valuable lol. PS i did 1 set of 25 and got the minimum gold.repair kit options all around, yay me

 

It was a global event... i didn't see any need to not run it on Asia..

Although we have many cultures, and our players like a lot of different payment methods that weren't available in this event... the event still ran reasonably.

 

While i have all info on the event and how it ran... I'll chase up with development to see what / when an announcement to the players of interesting info will or can be released.

 

Regards
Tan

Hi,quick question..

I took part in the event and sent off a gift to an unknown person in the spirit of things.

When I finally found my Santa "gift" , I ended up with (so it seems ) 500 gold and an account in World of Warships of which I have no interest in .

Is this expected or have I made a boo boo  :confused:  ?

You get an account on WOWS through the unified account rules, nothing to do with the Secret Santa.

So no mistake on your behalf, you gave GOLD you got GOLD in return simple as that.

Thank you for your reply Ranork.

I must have missed the fine print somewhere or not understood the conditions as I have not been playing WOT for long.

I honestly thought I would receive a gift for the same game (WOT) that was offering me the opportunity to be a Secret Santa.  

In future I will not partake in such gift giving if I receive gifts for a game I have no interest in playing,simple as that.

There are 2 santas, the green one with the tanker's hat for WoT, and the blue one with the admiral's uniform thingy for WoWs. If you got dubloons, you clicked on the blue Santa.

And yes, as Neokai said, you probably selected the wrong Santa / wrong game.

If you Pm me the details, i'll chat to support for you and see if i can get someone to transfer it for you.

Tan

Maybe add a SystemRenamexxxxx for multiple leading underscores in IGN too.

Thanks, didn't notice it was 3 underscores. For some reason I kept thinking it was 2.

 

@__stink_foot__, IGN rules prohibits having multiple "spacer" characters in your nickname, mainly because users tend to use that to evade bans and sanctions. The limit is 2 underscores before/after, 3 or more need to be changed (e.g. __name__ is okay, ___name___ is not okay, nor is ___name, nor name___).  I've put in a ticket with the GMs to get you a rename.
