Why Doesn't Asia Get Bonus Tank Rewards Missions Like NA and EU?

So, looking at the last couple of months of tank rewards, it's basically impossible to get the top rank. Currently, in order to finish with the top reward on asia, you'd need to play all 23 days during the contest, while also playing at least 20 t9-10 games on 18 of those 23 days in order to get the top reward, which is basically saying you must play the game 3 hours a day every day in order to get the top rewards. This is insane, even in a time of covid.

 

I was curious if the other servers were also complaining about this. Well, it turns out if you visit the NA and EU forums, they get an extra 350-450 points each month in bonus missions that are activated like any other wargaming code. These missions are apparently not available to us. This means that instead of having to play all day every day, they can play the 20x t9-t10 games on the friday-saturday-sundays during the contest and still finish it.

 

Why do we not get these bonus missions when every other server does?

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/634268-codes-for-bonus-tank-reward-missions-this-month/

 

also NA just gets heaps of extra codes each month, they have something called tank university which provides pretty nice rewards for anyone grinding tank lines: https://worldoftanks.com/en/content/guide/tank-university-missions/tum-0920/

 

They even have a thread where they just drop the codes in. Even in the off chance that we get codes here for a mission once every 5 months, they're hidden on useless things like discord. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/605553-codes-r-us/

 

I know NA is the top earner in terms of $$ per player, but it would be nice if we could get at least some of this stuff over here on Asia =/

So WG give out free tanks and this still isn’t good enough?

Seriously, they’re only tier 5 or 6s. Pay the $20 if you really want them then.

Interesting.

 

For mine tank rewards started here as being trivially easy but then morphed into the current form of yeah nah, will just play what i play and not bother going for whatever mid tier prems are on offer.

I doubt they're giving out more than 100 of these tanks each month, as it stands it's not possible to complete the missions unless you are unemployed and have a ridiculous amount of time to devote to the game. And this is coming from someone who has played the game a lot. The point totals are clearly geared towards those on NA and EU who have these bonus codes, while on those servers that dont (basically just us), it's much harder to complete them.

 

Sometimes the t6 tanks can be quite nice, I don't know about you but I have a lot more fun playing a t-34-85m than I do any of my tier 10s. This month the Strv would be a nice pickup as it's a very good tank, but there's no chance for me to get it because the point totals are impossible to reach.

That’s because the tier 10 meta is shit, whereas tier 6 is more balanced IMO.  I’m around half way through the tank rewards stage st the moment and hope to get a strv as well, as I already have the other 2.

Won't happen. WG staff don't read the forums - they probably would prefer they didn't exist.

Discord stream of consciousness is where it's at...

The discord is basically unusable, it's filled with spam and impossible to find anything you might be interested in. Also, it seems like it's only the Asia server where the staff is obsessed with it, there's plenty of interaction on the NA and EU forums.

Ironically the na and eu forums are known to be almost unliveable while ours has stayed relatively sane.

I have never yet seen anyone explain how Discord is in any way better than the forums other than WG staff might post there occasionally.

 

As a way for new players to find useful guides and tips without having to repeat the exact same questions as most other new players have...over and over again... Discord does nothing but sow discord.

At least WG interact with their playerbase on NA, they might cop a lot of flak but they hang in there.

 

OP has a pretty pertinent question, maybe Jay or Vondle could chime in with an answer?

Testify. A great platform for a clan with 100 members, pretty much pointless for a player base in the 10s of thousands.

Same. I about doubled my T6 stable through the early ones with options like the TOG II (surprisingly still good for hilarious fun after all these years... that gun is just so godly!), the Strv, the Puddle, and maybe one or two more? But at some point the requirements became "[edited] that". The fourth (second-last) reward tier is usually dogshit too, it's not even worth half-assing it.

I forgot to even claim two tiers worth of rewards last month - which brings me to another annoyance with the system. The new month doesn't even have to start for you to be locked out of getting any of the rewards. This whole method of 'engaging' people by getting them to click on random pages or insert meaningless codes rather than just putting them in game is rather... disengaging. It was like that razor comp for anz they had recently where it was like 'click random website for one entry, click another for another entry'. It was like they've found a way to legitimise those bots that come on here once in a while offering pleasurable mystics that will help mend your chakra by just clicking this link - except this was 'legit'.

I can't express exactly how many +1s and upvotes here ^^^^

 

Clunky doesn't even begin to describe how awkward the process of Tank Rewards is.

They've acknowledged but said that's how it grew. It was a side project done by a developer so built in a separate site as a hobby project. They know it's not great, but a product of its history rather than how it was designed.

How can it be made better?

I have difficulty getting those 30 battles even on a weekend.
