Apparently. Unless Tan wants to say otherwise about why they went on sale despite the negativity

But the point is do we have any data to suggest it is not representative of a wider cross section.

 

forumers can start a poll, and say "look WG, there are 126 players that have said that they don't want weeaboo tonks in the game"

 

WG will  sit back (rightly) and just count the dollars from the thousands of tanks they sold.

And it would appear revenue matters far more to WG than their player base. On our server at least. The other servers appear to have different priorities on the cartoons.

Absolutely. Premium store "poll" beats forum poll every time.

Its just unfortunate that the main reason to buy it is because its just another edition of 'Powercreep™' - By WG.

I wonder what all the dudes who spent all that time refining the physics model would feel about these things.

So we suffer WG's decision despite the global view that it was a bad idea.

Well in the Asia region I would believe most like the idea ( I do ) .... EU and NA clearly don't .....  As for WG, I think they made a sound BUSINESS choice here ..... Asia is great market for anything Anime ... World of Tanks ... where the "World" doesn't mean where we live .... but an entity that is fill with TANKS ..... to play, engage  .... brawl ... The problem to me isn't the source of the Tanks .. but the STATS of the NEW Premium Tanks .. which is really pissing people off ... On NA and EU forums  most seem to warm towards the Edelweiss  .. but totally loathe the Nameless clearly based on STATS .. it's too OP or as QB said "It's p2w"  :honoring:

Hard to keep track of the multiple threads on this whole topic, but yeah, basically agree with all that. The unknown however is exactly what the wider server population genuinely does think about the cartoons. The silent majority if you will. Are they on board, ambivalent or against. I think we'd all need to see the bigger data to really conclude either way. As is we have the forum sample, representative or not, at least it's pretty clear.

Hey I purchased Nameless ( got the FURY too ) and I'll probably get the Edelweiss ( although it looks dull ) .. Now the BIG question will I play them ... probably once or twice .. :honoring:​.    I just like to hoard things ..... :trollface:

Tbh I don't think these anime tanks would have such an outcry among the forum people if they weren't so broken. If they were 'just another average premium' I bet you all these people crying about weeabo tanks wouldn't be here

IMO, VC should not here, if as I am an anime fan, unless... it will be Super Nerf as soon as possible or be major unsatisfied players for these OP/P2W tanks either way.

There was a lot of 'crying' when they were first proposed.  Now there is a scream because WG have made them a joke.

So I bought this Nameless today right after it came out to find myself quite liking the tank. IMO Nameless is on a par with the notorious Defender; its gun handling, firepower, armor, and even maneuverability are very satisfactory. But this is not what I really want to tell.

 

Honestly the custom crew voice is, well, not my taste, so I tried to change the crew voice option only to find out it doesn't work. Another method I tried was to replace the commander with a normal crewman, but a notification popped out saying that I can't move the crew to barracks.

 

Yes, you can't reassign nor move the anime crew, they are just like the dog in Rudy; they're a part of the tank. You can't move your Type 5 Heavy crew to Nameless, vice versa. Clearly this is NOT a content mentioned in the premium shop page. I surely like the tank itself, but this makes me feel like Wargaming put one over on me again..

 

Hello EmbryoN

 

Thanks for the information and my apologies for the inconvenience.

Yes,  the crew being linked to the tank was not clear in the information release initially, so this was rectified in most places promptly, and all places and languages by 7pm SGT June 19th.

 

As such, we are offering an "Accelerated crew levelling package" as compensation, or refund, to the players affected by the news not being clear. (before the news was corrected)

 

I apologise again for the inconvenience.

 

Full details below.

 

 

Block Quote

Dear Players.

 

As you are aware Wargaming Asia has partnered with SEGA for the release of the Valkyria chronicles tanks Nameless and Edelweiss.  These tanks include an exclusive and special anime crew with voices partnered with the tank, rendering the crews for these tanks not interchangeable.

 

Our original news on the tanks release was misleading and unclear.  Which has led to some players purchasing the tanks unaware the crew is not interchangeable.  If you purchased the tanks before 7pm SGT Monday June 19th prior to when “how the crew works” was made clear on all portals / premium shop / pages in all languages then you may request one of the following by contacting Asia customer support.

 

1. An accelerated crew leveling package containing
10x boosters +300% crew exp for 2 hours valued at 175 gold each or 1750 gold total.
3 days premium valued at 650 gold
800 gold
And we hope you continue to enjoy your purchase.

 

2. Or if you prefer, a full refund on the package.
Note : if you wish to request a refund on the package, please ensure the tanks are free of equipment before you request the tanks to be removed.

 

Either of the above, can be requested through customer support (please allow a few days for processing) provided the purchase was before 7pm SGT June 19th.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this miscommunication.

 

Regards
Tan

The fact they are offering a compensation option - ie where they get to keep their tanks - suggests we may be stuck with them.

One can hope that they might at least see a nerf though... or a "rebalance to a different tier" if you will

I've held that hope for quite a few of the prems for some time now. Barely a glimmer of indication from WG even accepting they aren't balanced, let alone signs they may nerf them. Broken balance is broken.

There's got to be balance to start with for it to be broken... there hasnt been balance in a long time.

Extremely unlikely, as that constitutes changing the product vis-a-vis lemon law.
