IIRC the last day of the advent calendar was a special unveil of a new tank, perhaps it'll be the same again. I'll keep this post updated as tanks are revealed for 2018 & 2019. I should also point out that after the Advent Calendar last year there was also a second chance sale, just in case you missed something the first time around.

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 .

The "Advent Calendar Ready To Go" mission is available. I completed it not long ago, and it was in English.

I got that screen yesterday (I assume), but it didn't have the image or any text it was just an error message in Russian (and the window text were also in Russian).

 

EDIT: Not seeing any missions for Advent, but I do have my new Twitch missions for the T14.

My error message is in English. Still an error, but in the right language.

Well, I got the mission to work now, though I did have to click on it multiple times, for some reason.

Not exactly a strong opening. I guess we'll see what else is in store...

Almost missed the +50% credits reserves mission for day 2 today. (Missed day 1)

 

It's manual activation again...


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Whaaaat? I didn't see any button for that. When I look at the advent page it just has two buttons, both to purchase the 40t (one for gold, one for cash).

That Tiger 131 is a bit of [edited]anyway. It has a 8.8 cm gun, so why the hell does it need a large calibre rammer rather than a medium one? Other 8.8 cm guns in the German tech tree at tier VI use a medium rammer, even on the other tier VI heavy.

Missed out on the Lorraine sale because Razer-Mol merger [content remoced] up the normal loading processes, leaving me with nothing more but printouts that lost cash value. [content removed] the timing.

The 3601's main gun was the Waffe lol. 88's generally used large rammer (Tiger, Tiger P et al)
