The criteria is clear. We don't meet it. That is all they know and all we need to know.

 

Don't ask for more information. They don't know what to say. This will take a couple weeks to do the math on and find a workable reasoning that will sound plausible.


 

Best thing you could ever do is make us detest each other instead of helping do anything to snub fast grinders and build a community around a code that isn't for 20% extra experience for $9.99.

So I come back from a exhausting trip from Disneyland with a 2 year old who insisted in being carried everywhere to the most controversial topic of 2016; the M60. First off, apologies for the lack of an official thread. The tank was not meant to be credited until the 23rd which at which time the official thread would have gone live, everything is backwards this week.

 

What is the M60 reward criteria?

At this time I am unable to divulge the exact specifics as to who got the tank. The M60 was awarded to a very small set of players. It's so exclusive even your's truly is not allowed to have one because even I don't meet the criteria. Whatever advantages of being a WG employee gives me does not include the M60. 

 

Is this the only time the M60 will be rewarded?

Nope. The M60 is a permanent reward tank in Blitz which means it can be made available in future campaigns. It will always be a prize and will never be sold much like the IS-6 Fearless used in Clan Wars II. 

 

That's about the only info I can share at the moment until I have more available. I know there will be more questions so I will do my best to answer them. 

 

 

At present time, do you yourself know the exact criteria for distribution and, if so, are just waiting for corporate's "go ahead" to reveal it to us?

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. 

 

 

You clearly have not read the aforementioned material. LOYALTY IS A MISTRANSLATION

I think everyone knows why they do not want to say, this is a reward for buying premium tanks and gold.  The fact that all the low end players who have been awarded one have dropped large chunks of dollars pretty much confirms it.

Nope.  I got one and only have 7 premiums, most of which I won or was rewarded.

U think is fair a new player that don't even have a tier X receive a rare tank and a player that have been playing since version 1.3, have +25,000 battles and have so much tanks tier X don't receive anything?

Reads: was given at random.

 

WG needs to think about this: why would anyone care to buy their expensive tier 8 O-47 at $50 when some people, with no merit whatsoever, can get a tier 10 M60 for free?

 

No more purchase from WG from today on.

It happens but slandering the company who makes this great game we all love does exactly what? Makes us all look like whining entitled children. Life's not fair deal with it.

Senator Ratbat,

Thank You (WG) for the M60 Tank.

Whatever the criteria, I appreciate the recognition, for whatever the recognition criteria is. 

I purchased the 0-47. It does not disappoint. The exterior is a bit odd, but its here so, might as well abuse the Pubs with it.

The T-54 Mod 1 is also a great Tank.

Thanks also for the BT-7 Arty.

Thanks CC_Sly for setting up the most recent Competitions. I received 3.2mill Credits and 2400gold for our recent Victory.

So Today was a great day in Blitz.

07

Keep up the Good Work.

Have a Great Holiday.

 

 

 

 

It's easy to thank them when everything goes right for you...

 

Look, Wargaming, I'm jealous that I didn't get one, I'm going to say that right now, but I'm fairly sure "loyalty" wasn't what this giveaway was based on. I just want to know how you decided who would get the M60. I won't be frustrated as long as there's an actual explanation. If it's random, so be it. Loyalty is not an actual explanation. There are people who have been way more loyal than me, more deserving of a good reward, that didn't get anything. And there are people who don't know what sidescraping is that did get the tank. An explanation (and the next paragraph) is all I want.

 

And I still haven't gotten my reward for one of the Blitz Brawls, the second one I think. When will we get those? I'm pretty sure 2,400 gold wasn't what was supposed to be given out, as the 21,000 gold prize pool should have been divided among 8 or 16 teams of 9 people, but whatever. 

 

Edit: I'm mad, the Winter Fair has been a complete bust for me, team have been crappy, Blitz is no bueno for me right now, so I'm pretty harsh right now. Sorry about that. You've done a lot of things right and it's hard to look past the things that have gone wrong. Thank you for constantly updating the game, adding new content, and listening to us once in a while. Happy holidays.

There was no mistake. Just because we don't know the metric at this moment doesn't mean it was a mistake. We achieved something (not sure what) and got a reward for it.

So, it's safe to say that all those who received the M60 had a tier X prior, correct?
