So who has this tank and also has a low average battle played count?

I am flat out call [edited]on this. Wg faked up and now are trying to make excuses as to why they did what they did. How is it that some

of these players who were awarded the m60 more qualified then what I suspect is a much larger player population. This is just another clear example of Wg having no clue what they are doing. 

 

But like most i don't qualify, despite spending cash and time and not having a strike against me.

so it just goes to show that in the end Wg doesn't really care about its player base.

Well, at least we have a target. You have to go AFK about 90% of the time with a couple thousand battles or you have to spend $1000 and join a purple legion.


 

I thought this was a merit based game. It's not. It's pretty much a government program in the back office of an unlicensed casino for children.

Given the rampant speculation that kind of spread wildfire like it might be best just to come out and say what the criteria was.  Personally it seems kind of overrated to me.  On the one hand free tier X tank, but on the other it seems to bleed credits even worse than other tier Xs and doesn't seem particularly good.  Though that is just from my own observation in game.

 

Though I could certainly understand wanting to not reward the barnstormers for their ridiculous behavior.  I mean the children whining that they didn't get their free toy is seriously way out of hand.  Just to clarify if you are complaining that nobody gave you something for free you are indeed a child no matter what your age.

Ok, how about being a high avg player / day + big spender?

 

I think its a combination of factors, not just one.

 

Still, is there an M60 recipitant out there that averages a low amount of battles per day?

 

Maybe high avg is one of several factors?

To the people who have an issue with the fact that it might be a reward for spending a certain amount of money, that actually seems like a pretty decent business model? There are literally THOUSANDS of companies who reward people for spending a certain amount money. It's a reward for spending money. Why is that wrong?

Just wait until the 23rd for the official forum announcement to come out to see what the criteria for being gifted the M60 is. I don't see why you lot are all still trying to think of your own criteria.

 

It's clear that WG messed up the gifting. Likely any players who got the tank but did not meet the actual criteria will have the tank removed and then get compensated somehow.

Not sure what I did to earn it. It will be interesting to know.

I just completed purchasing a KV 1 then bought 20 Legendary Crates. Played a few battles in the KV1 and got beat down. Then I got kicked off the server for scheduled maintenance.

I kept trying to log on for about 10 minutes like I was going through withdrawals and finally I was in and got a message screen telling me I earned this tank. Thank you WG!

Players who were awarded the tank will have it permanently

Doubtful, chances are they may lower the criteria instead to quell the unrest.  Alternatively, they may provide an more accessible means of acquiring the tank so that the excuslivisty for "loyal" players are reduced.

 

But first thing first, there need to be more transparency.  If loyalty means spending a lot of cash, so be it.  They are funding the development of this game so the majority don't have to pay a cent.

It's not about cash because I have over 10 premiums and I didn't get one. Also I've been playing since the launch of the game . I agree with what your saying about transparency . it would be nice if wg acknowledged those who have spent a lil extra to keep this game moving where it is today . they need to release a statement staying the facts of how the m60 was awarded.

Just see guys, this is not based on stats, or how old u are in the game, maybe the $$$$ u have spend counts but it seems aleatory

there are two admins here and they don't even know how this tank was gifted, so don't have expectations of WG, they don't advised this on any server

Can't believe the lot of you who thinks your entitled to anything from a game? Some of you are outright rude and condescending we all just got a FREE tank not a week ago remember? So thanx for the great game wargaming sounds about right to me! Love the game and it gets better with every update keep up the good work!

Basically for those of us who have spend years playing as considerable cash just got slapped in the face by Wg and insulted. And I am nowhere near alone in this. My "loyalty" doesn't count and as such Wg no longer matters to my bank account. It's being made pretty clear from Wg implementation of this that there is no reason to spend my money on the game or play daily since I'm the end Wg doesn't consider any of it loyalty so why bother anymore. 

 

Its pretty clear Wg considers very few of us loyal or valued players.
