Is it just me or is the whole Celebrate 11/11 a little insensitive? Remember 11/11 would be a little more relevant? After all, most western countries had a large portion of a generation fight in WW1 and many of those who returned suffered in silence when they returned. 
 

Also, the email link is broken.

Up here they've gotten so dumb about it that they've got a campaign on asking wargaming streamers to pause for a moment of silence, as well as building a scale memorial as a Fortnite map. On the surface it seems well-intentioned, but it's just so much tawdry gimmickry (there's been endless "Press F" jokes in response).

 

The issue we have where the Royal Canadian Legion has gradually become a civvy org full of wannabes and well-meaning but stupid posers, to the point where the actual vets want nothing to do with the Legion anymore. Problem is that the Legion still controls all national poppy sales and runs a huge proportion of remembrance events - including the idiocies above.

 

So I've actually stopped buying or wearing poppies, because I don't want to give the Legion a dime of my money, knowing full well that virtually none of it will go to support actual veterans.

You'd think that a company from a country that had over 30 million war deaths would have a bit more of an idea.

They’re from Belarus, not Russia. Your point still stands though.

It is called remembrance day for a reason.

 

All points to the probability the local content team has been disbanded.

I buy scale model kits from a online supplier in China called AliExpress (owned by the Alibaba group, yes, that's the correct name), it's made up of small businesses in China and other Asian locations like Singapore.

They have a sale on now, 11.11 on selected Military model kits.

Hey guys, 

 

Just clearing up some confusion here. The promotion you would've seen for any in game offers is for Singles Day, which is basically the Asian equivalent of Black Friday in terms of sales.

We have actually released the following article to honour Remembrance Day: https://worldoftanks.asia/.../gener.../remembrance-day-2019/

On top of that the Singles Day sales don't commence until well past the 11th hour. You can find some more info on Singles Day here: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-11-10/singles-day-2019-china-ecommerce-taylor-swift-australia-join/11669184

I think the thing here is that the big celebrations in Russia are VE day or May Day. Armistice Day doesn't have even close to the same meaning in Russia, considering the October Revolution, the treaty of Brest-Litovsk and all that.

Seems like some people jumped to conclusion too quickly...

 

There is a similar joke about celebrating the date of Berlin War being torn down

How to solve all problems once and for all with just 3 lines of code:

mod_folder.disable

Is it just me or there is no EBR in the premium shop which is mentioned in the Double Eleven sales.

Guess Singles' Day hasn't spread to the Aussies yet. I've put up my annual Remembrance day post in off-topic for those interested in some history.

It’s up now mate, but the minimum pack is bloated with 3000 gold. It would be too easy for the greedy muppets to just sell it for $40 instead of $57. As usual WG just don’t get it. Tanitha fought for us to just get the plain old vanilla version of tank sales without all the other crap no one wants and now it’s all gone.
