What?:izmena:

 

I just completed stage 75, and I had a bunch of legendary and epic boosters still in my account, before the last match.

 

Now that I completed 75, they all disappeared!

 

I just purchased the 5 legendary boosters for 250 gold, and that's all that's in my account!

 

I was going to convert all of my epics into legendary and then I was going to eventually cash in all of my legendaries to get the gold.

 

Now, I have nothing! Everything is gone, except for the 5 legendaries which I just bought for 250 gold!

 

Where are all of the other legendary and epic boosters that I had been saving up?

 

They are gone, they vanished as soon as I completed level 75!:justwait:

 

Actually, I am looking at my notifications now, and it says that they were automatically deducted.

 

They deducted one legendary for 100 gold.

 

And 26 epics for 26000 currency!

 

This is crap! I was going to exchange the epics into legendary!

 

This is beyond sneaky and devious, but I probably should have known better with all of the sneakiness going on with the boosters. I feel ripped off. Not cool WG.:angry:

 

I guess now that the event is done for me, I will go back to trolling nubs again. At least that's one thing that'll make me happy and I won't feel ripped off.:justwait:

I also noticed that even though the event screen is now gone from my account garage page, the game will still auto activate the legendary boosters which I just bought for 250 gold, even though I'm done with the event.:playing:

 

I'll have to keep track and make sure to de-activate the boosters before every single match, or they'll get scammed away from me too.:justwait:

That sucks. You could try submitting a ticket asking for the epic boosters back.

 

And I'm impressed that you completed the event already. That's some real dedication.

That last event Avatar was a lot more expensive than you figured 

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

It's ok. Those epics would've only been about 3 legendaries.:playing:

 

It's worse for the 9 legendaries I had going into today.

 

Yesterday I had set my game to auto default to using epic boosters for every battle, so I couldn't make any mistakes and use any legendaries by accident.

 

Today when I began playing, I assumed it was still auto defaulted to the same settings I used yesterday, which was to use epic in every battle.

 

That was too much for me to presume, as the game auto defaulted to using up all of my legendaries today.

 

So yeah, I guess technically, it's my fault for not checking and double checking and triple checking things between every single match. 

 

So I basically lost more than 1000 in gold due to the changing default settings and settings that get reset between logins etc.:justwait:

So glad you warned us! I am so close to completing.. Gonna take a break until the event is over now. I'm f2p and have plans for that gold....

One thing does make me take pause.. In the event description it says "one legendary booster will compensate you for 100 gold".... 

Makes me think that no matter how many legendary boosters you have, you will only be compensated for one. 

WG is sneaky like that

Ah yeah, I saw a post by someone who completed the whole thing after about 3 days. The tip was to NOT complete the final stage until the end, so you can continue to collect the mission boosters, convert, then profit at the end.

I sent this to support.  I don't remember exactly how many Legendary Boosters I had so I am just making a comparison with two other accounts.  I know I had at least the 8 if not many more.  I didn't actually keep track of how many I had because who would have thought they would just disappear.  This will really suck if WOT doesn't resolve this issue especially since others are having the same issue.
 
"I am on level 33 in the blitz 5 Year Event.  I had at least 8 but probably more Legendary Boosters with 5 sweet boosters that I was waiting to turn into Legendary boosters as soon as I had 3 more sweet boosters.  I was going to use all boosters tomorrow to use them up and see what I could get with them.
All my legendary boosters are gone/missing.  I still have 5 sweet boosters left.  I have NOT used any Boosters as of yet.
Looking at two other accounts one with 23 levels has 6 Legendary Boosters and another with 21 levels has 8 Legendary Boosters.
Since you get more sweet boosters with each mission and the comparable rise in event level, I should have a minimum of 8 Legendary Boosters but as I said they are gone/missing.
What can you do to help resolve this issue with the Legendary boosters before the event is over and they become worthless.  I worked hard to get those Legendary boosters and I would appreciate your help in getting them restored.
Thank you!"

I find it extremely sneaky that they auto-activate these boosters every match, even when you've specifically uninstalled them in the booster UI.

 

They are clearly trying to zero these things out to minimize the gold payouts, and it sucks.

 

I've decided to stop using the boosters for the remainder of the event so I can similarly convert them all to legendaries before the end, but I slipped up this afternoon and it swiped one to use it. I was kinda miffed, but I'll get over it.

This has bugged me since they initially posted the news blurb about this event.

 

Did you purchase the 5 legendary boosters AFTER the system deducted everything, or before?

 

It's made me curious because in the event details, they say they'll give you 100 gold for every legendary booster, but that the only two ways to obtain the boosters are to complete levels in the event and to combine epic boosters into a legendary booster.

 

It made me wonder if they're going to compensate people 100 gold each for the 5 legendary boosters that were purchased from the store, as that wasn't specifically listed as one of the ways to acquire the boosters that you'd get the gold in exchange for, if that makes sense. (They seem to be the Kings of Fine Print.)

Is that camo even special?:playing:

 

I think it's been given out before, because I already have it on one of my tanks.:izmena:

 

And I still have the certificate for the camo which I haven't used yet.:justwait:

Got an answer back from support and they basically said that I had used all my Legendary boosters up because I didn't shut them off before each battle.  I have told them that the screen that normally comes up to allow you to turn boosters on or off did not come on before the battles.  I have taken videos of a few of these battles and guess what!  The screen where you can turn them on or off didn't show up.  Then in one battle it came on for at most 2 seconds.  It was gone before I could even react.  I have videos and will post if interested.

You can actually toggle that screen on and off I believe and switch between the 2 views. :playing:

 

It's the same as when you switch between seeing the names of players or not and the minimap on or off.

 

But yeah, I agree that the whole thing is confusing, dumb and designed to make players lose boosters.:justwait:
