It wasn't though.

   If that WAS the case, WG could have said, hey yeah if you spent $2k on the game you got it.

  BUT - multiple accounts that had low game's and next to no premiums got it -- meaning they couldn't have spent the money - as their garage indicated nothing was there.

 

Some former WG employees offline have said it was a flawed algorithm in the award, I tend to believe that, as based on WG's history (invisible tanks, MM issues etc) it is the most likely aspect.

  EU had posted the WG "Official" Award criteria -- I had reposted it here, but it was scrubbed out - and I did not save a copy -- it has been wiped from EU too, and WG personnel have said they CANNOT talk about it.

 

 

 

 

I think they took the politically correct answer, be it wrong in my book, they should have just admitted it. I believe the wrong answer was "A select amount of special players" I may be wrong on the quote it's been some time. I received it and was happy I did. I would have just said it was given out randomly. No complaints here though!

Who cares anymore, just save up your change over the year and buy it during Blitz Fair 2018. (Let's not act like it won't be sold again, we tried that and look at where we are.)

Not really, because I had got something I should not have.  its not theft, bait and switch at all.  It was for once an honest mistake and those who purchased the Fearless new they were buying something that be on sale.  I saw all the threads on here "quick the Fearless is on sale, buy it before they realise"  

 

Im guessing the only reason your defending it is because you are one of those who bought it and feel entitled to keep it.......

 

It was bait and switch. That WG lied about the tank's exclusivity doesn't exactly pardon them to double back on the side that paid for it. The tank was still advertised and sold as the IS-6 Fearless and people bought gold because they wanted to buy that specific product. It would be even worse if it was intentional, but let's give this one to WG since it probably was a mistake. Anyways, they goofed and the only solutions to solve the problem would P.O. one side or the other. WG decided it was best to please their paying customers, and I don't blame them; any business trying to stay in business would do the same.

 

I did not buy the Fearless, just throwing that out there.

There was completely different case. Fearless was available for purchasing by mistake. We fixed it pretty quickly but unfortunately some players caught their chance to buy tank. I understand you are upset about it and you definitely have reasons to feel like that. It was our fault and i bring apologies to you and other Fearless holders. 

 

instead of taking em back from the buyers, then getting whined to, and then giving em back, you should’ve said no, kept em and refunded them somehow,

  No, it’s the only thread that’s proven pertinent over the long haul. It represents everything wrong with the game and the disconnect between development and the players. 

 

  There will be no reason to post here anymore for the rest of the year unless they decide to put the tank up for sale in a bundle.

And that's why I'm saying it's the life support for this forum. 60% of the threads started now are gripes about WG; this is the epitome of it all.

WG NA is HQ’s in California, want to deal with a bait and switch suit there? 

    WG did what they had to. 

 

For example, I go to Best Buy, I see a massive plasma TV on sale for $350. 

  I buy it. Best Buy marked the wrong TV down, they notice it after I and others buy it,  but they can’t go back and demand the ones folks bought back. 

 

I didn’t buy a Fearless - I knew it was an error.  

    But the point is it was sold.

I did buy the fearless, I had no idea it was an awards tank. I never paid attention to that $hite. It was removed, I emailed WG to say I'll take a refund of $$, not gold, I wanted my money back.

 

I received gold....and the tank back.

 

to say I didn't earn it, would be to say I didn't earn the money at my job that was spent. I didn't WIN it for whatever the event was that's true. The tank sits, gets taken out for a spin occasionally. And BTW I was given the M-60 too, I don't know why. But I do know when I've played it I had 13 tankers wishing that I'd FOAD very quickly.

Like others, I was given the tank and have no idea why. Yes, I've spent some cash like everyone from time to time but I've also participated in contests and been vocal with WG upon occasion and have been here since the beginning. I can tell you this, as far as the forums go, two things have brought this place to another level. Not necessarily bad but down to another level. The whole debacle over the M60 and update 3.H8t.

This forum was more vibrant, alive and thriving with enthusiasm back in the day. Tank Boom was going strong. Sure there have been other smaller issues but it's just not the same anymore. It's depressing. All this over a digital tank, bad marketing portrayal and apparent lack of WG support. I don't even play the M60 that much. My WR in it, is pathetic. I win 3 then I lose 3. It's a good ride but everyone still jumps on it. I'd like to practice more but tier X isn't really that enjoyable for me. So many narcissist unicum players out there that do nothing but throw insults. Not my idea of a good time. I'd much rather play tier VII and VIII. Much better attitudes in my humble opinion. Yes, I have an M60, thank you WG....but it'll remain mainly a collectible museum piece.

Good for you that you got one. It was a mistake that it went on sale,  it yeah people did do a mad rush to buy it! Me, I was like “who needs another IS6”? 

And no I did not buy it. So far the only beta, special or rare tank that has not been sold by WG (although it almost happened once) is the RU beta tester KV220.

If the Fearless incident resulted the way it did, where is the complete and thorough reimbursement of all equipment lost due to spare parts?(and subsequent apology like above) I still haven't been able to kit out all of my favorite tanks. Sure, I play them and do well in them but - I'm still at a handicap and a burden on my team.

 

The Jawas got involved, and are the new middle man entity on your Hutt-ruled desert sands paradise. They are relentless hoarders of spare parts, and you never know how long the timer will be before they drive their large tracked garage sale to your neighborhood.

You know what, thats a valid comment. Shame on me for referenceing that tripe. +1 to you.

 

but - the prequels were still better than this awful Disney fan fiction on the big screen these days. When do the actual movies come out?
