Heya Tankers.

 

Let's get to this. I got an e-mail with an update to the whole IS-6 Fearless and Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 situation.

 

TL;DR: We are going to be returning all gifted IS-6 Fearless and Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 tanks to the accounts we removed them from.

 

Now with the TL;DR out of the way, I think I'd like to explain a bit more what you did to help with this decision and why it was changed.

 

The why is easy. We screwed up and it is not right to punish the players because of a mistake that we as a company made. It would be one thing if it was going to break the core balance of the game in some way - either in game economy or game balance. This was not the case however. It was a reskinned IS-6. A tank that was already in game. So balance-wise there should be no issue. The Snowstorm just was meant to be a 2015 tank - so no big deal there.

 

We come to the issue now of those who have earned the IS-6 Fearless through Clan Wars. This is a bit of a tough one. I really only have one thing I can offer you. That is my apology and promise I will do everything in my power to make sure the Fearless stays off any type of store. It is meant to be a high skill earned tank. It is not fair however to deny the people who, for all intents and purposes, purchased gold to buy the tank. I cannot offer you any reward or compensation. There are not many out there. I can’t tell you the exact number but it is small. (fewer than the posts in the thread I made) You may see them "everywhere" for a bit, but it is people trying out their new shiny tank. Again I am sorry.

 

Now for the how you helped. It is pretty simple. You provided your views and stories. Posts like this , this, and this give us solid arguments and suggestions to put forth when discussing changes like these. On the other side - we have comments like this and this that don’t really tell a story or offer anything for discussion.

 

So when you have issues or see something you don’t agree with, let us know. Post a topic, give us feedback, and try and suggest a solution. We do look at it and we do share it. Our priority is to make Blitz the best experience for the most people. I thank you for your patience and understanding that you have all showed while we got this resolved.

Thanks for the update, Sly! 

 

A couple of questions...

 

Does that include both gifted and purchased?

 

How soon will soon will this take place? And will gold still in account be automatically deducted?

The rule of thumb is - if we removed the tank from an account we will put it back. So if you purchased gold and gifted the tank to your friend and we removed it from their account, they will receive the tank back. We will not be deducting any gold from the gifters. 

 

As far as timing - before the end of the week is my hope. But one step at a time.

Perhaps you can give the original Fearless owners an IS-5? Unless you already have plans for that tank, that is.
