WG is really starting to split hairs ...

 

Premium, but it isn't because it was a gift first, then up for gamble

 

Premium, but it isn't because it is only permanently enriched, and of course comes with 100% crew, 100% researched, ... 

 

Premium, but it isn't because it is a tier IX or X ... and we don't do tier IX and X premiums.

Well they are ‘selling’ the WZ-121B - so so much for the we don’t sell greater than tier 8 Premiums (yes they sold the Pz 70 prior).  

 

 

I don’t think WG can remember their own policies.

I think 5.5 was good for the game - But I also want my Kenny OP nerfed. 
Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8

wg just can't keep up with the male cattle stool they tell the consumers. Any lie eventually gets out because you can only stretch it so far, but at some point while digging the story won't make sense. Pretty much what's happening here but it only took a shallow hole.

I drank a case ( 'supply crate' ) of Stoli this weekend and none of this is still making any sense to me.

The goal isn’t to make sense.

Neither - Stol is the Russian word for "Table" - So .. it is  "Table Vodka".

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Never forget. 

Sad that this is by far the most replied to thread to fall this far down the pages.  This was the beginning of the end of the glory days of Blitz for the noobs.  Learn your history to not repeat it's mistakes.  Has WG ever answered the questions asked here?

Answered and deleted when the Party decided that was not the official line. 

    They wiped parts out of this thread where I reposted the answers from the EU Community Manager.  NA got the gag order as well. 

Several folks leaving WG confirmed that while the criteria released on EU was the intended distribution, things didn’t go as planned, and many intended recipients didn’t get them, while a slew of accidents did.  

 

IIRC. the criteria was 4/6 of the following:

10k plus games 

60% WR 

2/3rds of tanks aced

I’m fuzzy in these next ones 

Player since April 2015 

1 or more tank at 60% in X

10 or more Premium Tanks 

 

Dont quote me on the last three.  I remember that I qualified under all of them, and I did get the tank.  

 

I wish it had been a CW reward tank honestly.

I still can't believe 0707 quit when he was wrong about the criteria being dollars spent. Man, that thread was a sh*t show in itself. So many great community leaders and whales lost when WG could have righted the wrong by taking the tank from the people who weren't supposed to get it, awarding it to those that did, and giving everybody an in game post of "we f*cked up, have a tetrach and 50k"

much noob, working on recovery

I was wondering where this thread went. Was actually just thinking about it too when I stumbled upon it on the first page...

Think I qualified under all of that criteria besides 10 or more bought premium tanks in December 2016. Oh wg... :facepalm:

 Luckily for me I had a boatload of free xp and gold burning a hole in my account during December 2017...

That would create another $#£¥ storm like the fearless debacle. People would want their premium tank back and WG would catch a ton of flak. Once it happened, every exit route they had would result in some part of the playerbase complaining.

I'll have to disagree, but we're never going to know either way.

Well for the fearless it was a strong arguement in favor of the players given they spent money.

 

The M60 was free so players would have no right to be mad.

one must have tanked 99.99% of their battles with a full crew

I guess. But most of y'all would still be angry if they one day just pulled the ltp, t2 combat car, or anko from your garage.

Some of us are now of the opinion that they can take back whatever they want and it won't really effect us in any way, shape, or form...

They pulled my WW1 tank, they pulled my T49a, and they constantly pull my leg.  For what I spent WG should be pulling my 3rd leg.  What ever happened to DogFace?
