Thanks for all the free and discounted stuff this past month Ribble. It was bonkers and I literally don't know what to do with it all.

Another BP? I don't understand why WG doesn't space out the BP. Otherwise they will become mundane and more of a chore than an event.

But free stuff is free stuff so I'm not complaining.

Not at all eager for this one. The Rudolph looks like it came from the Island of Misfit Toys.

As much as I enjoy throwing money at this game, my $5 is gonna sit this one out.

Rudolph looks like it might be better than the E8. A little faster and reload is faster. And if you grind the antlers into powder you can use it for other things.

Ribble, I will echo others here, great free stuff through Battle Pass, but it is getting a little stale. I was really hoping to have the mini tank board game again this year....and something little more.....magical. Maybe you have an Xmas ace up your sleeve? 

 

So next year will there be a Grinch tank? ;)

The narration voice / style ... ... brrrrrr ... 

The rudolph tank is a missed opportunity.

 

Is WG now aiming for a battle pass every month?

Any chance the Rudolph tank has some unique spaced armor on the sides? :medal:

 

 

Surely those Christmas decorations would add at least a few more millimeters of effective armor, right? :)

 

 

Anyone else hope the "nose" glows when you approach top speed and/or when you play on more "foggy" maps like Canal?? hahaha!! :)

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

I want Pz 38 nA more than Rudolph. 

 

The camos seem seem great tho, might consider buying the pass.

 

and for the tiger nation or whatever: what is the low teir tank at the beginning of the pass going to be? Kinda want valentine AT or something like that

Cool Mode idea, Tier 1-4 pre 3.hate nerf. Plus Gravity Mode. This is the way, to make me smile.

I'm only getting it for the Pz 38 nA, the Rudolph I'll sell ASAP. Seems useless, since I can just buy back an E8 and do the same thing.

"I like trains. Deal with it." I mostly play Tier VII and VIII-and am 80% F2P. (I need garage slots!)

Favorite light tank:LTTB, favorite medium:M26 Pershing, favorite heavy:VK 100.01 (P), favorite tank destroyer:SU-152

     but all tanks are good if you know how to play them!

Having a New Year Operation doesn't mean there won't be a New Year event. We've mentioned it during Blitz NA Cup stream and will give more details later. 

Nice idea with a Grinch tank btw!

And that proves that there are valuable rewards for everyone.

I’m with you on this one.  I just don’t see the benefit this time around.

What would happen if you bought the pass at the end of the bp? Would the vaults still fill?

No, if you bought it at the very end when you had completed it, you would get the room in the vaults, but your past  battles wouldn't count and you'd have to rush to fill the vaults.  If you're gonna buy the premium pass do it sooner rather than later

Day 3 of the event, And it's the 3rd day that I did not even come close to finishing all my mission. I think I made a mistake of spending that $5 this time.

Loving the event so far. x5 certs are great; only 10k left to get the T57 Heavy. Thanks WG, and I’ll be looking forward to the New Years event later on.

No I'm not defending German technical superiority, I'm stating the ****ing obvious!
