So this is Football season, and i am sure plenty of  us are hyped about it, because WG is going all in.

 

So EU does this special where you can support your team and get free stuff when they win. So does Asia. Great right? What is greater than supporting a team and getting free stuff when they win? Well i guess the only thing that can be better is supporting WG while we are supporting our teams too.

 

This is the special on EU. https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/tankball-giveaway-2018/#

You can enter those codes in the premium shop to indicate the team you support and then if they win you just got to win a battle to get free stuff.

 

This is the special on Asia. https://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/game-events/join-the-football-masters-draw/

We can BUY special packages to show our support to the teams and if they win we can get special stuff.

 

How is this not sports gambling? spending money on the game to bet on a team to get some in game stuff?  I mean do not care if they do not do the giveaway stuff and do not give us the free stuff. the in game event is enough i guess. And i am also fine about them monetizing the card stuff. But they have to go ahead and monetize this too.

 

Guess hats off to the monetizing guys who came up with a way for us to show our support to our teams as well as wargaming!!!

So we literally just recover from decorationgate, we get premiumMMgate, 268 v4gate, EULAgate (this on'e still to come though), and now footballgate.

 

I'm getting the feeling that the guy that used to run WG's balans dept is now running the specials dept.

 

On the plus side, we don't have to watch soapies on TV anymore - WG's giving us more than enough drama.

prob want to double check other sites but I’m pretty sure sports betting is legal in Australia within legislation. 

I think I’ll apply the wait and see method to this as it’s not like the mode is released here yet. Never know maybe we will get some stuff too??? Fingers crossed. :/

 

Also at the end of the day it’s not if we call it gambling. It is if it is considered gambling in the eyes of the law and I’m no lawyer. Tho free stuff would be great *hint* *hint*

Calm the farm people. You are buying a days premium and a booster. When you buy the package you also get a ticket for a team. If the team wins then you can win a virtual prize (not money).

 

How is this gambling?

Maybe read the T&C when the packages are available. Unlike the decorations where people just bought things assumin they included something they didn’t

Maybe   the bit where you PAID real cash?

I was cared then i shared , not want or who i wanted to be, but this will come to the sum or even the long lost stare, if we could just fix the bus i might just look and smile but since i no care that you swear the evil will once transpire

if i could i would ban arty from from my games because it sucks it ruins gameplay pity the stupids cant see it and how to attack the problem in font of them

It's pretty easy as well.  Just bet against any AFC team and you should roll in the rewards.

It's actually pretty funny, but any Russian WoT player who knows footy at all should know to bet against the Russian team... :D

Lets not forget that "gambling on christmas decorations-gate" fiasco. That time it was illegal in one nation under the SEA banner, so illegal for ALL. That was like SIX MONTHS AGO.

And I'd go put money on the russian team making it through the pool stage to the semis or the quarters, but no "institution" is willing to take the "totally legal" bet, for some reason.

 

Lets not forget Italy, who became world champs, and the very next national season, the entire (national) competition fell into chaos amid cheating and corruption.

Then the very next world cup, NZ team went UNDEFEATED in the pool round, and even DREW with the current world champs, ITALY, and still didn't make it through.

Sounds reasonable.  France will ease into the tournament and providing they don't embrace the classic every 2ns WC meltdowns they should stroll past 'straya. Cautionary note - It is an off year for them having bollocksed it in both 2002 and 2010.
