Send in a ticket and PM the ticket number and I'll make sure that you get your IS-6 Back without an exception use.

Thanks CC.

Mistakes happen. If I won the IS-6F, I wouldve been upset too.

I can live with the removal.

Silver Lining. The Store got some attention. Tbh, I thought maybe the Fearless was a gliche.

Something to Consider regarding the (2) mishap Tanks.

The people who bought it, good, bad or otherwise. 

Where the first in line for the New Update.

Many also Free XP'd via Gold to jump up French Line.

And many rebought a Tank they already had at full price.

Some good Customers.

If I may make a Request.

Is there a way to take this into consideration when the IS-5 is a Factor?

Anyway, thanks for addressing the issue. 

Bet that first IS-6 Fearless Thread was a pleasant moment.

WAIT. I have a possible reparation. This will also likely be over time, but hear me out. It was said there would be a new earnable tank dealy based on the French. No one knows when this will happen (wink wink, nudge nudge), but how about gifting one of these new premiums? Like, to everyone? Not saying it would fixe everything, but a serverwide gift does tend to appease the masses.... Maybe to kind of say "Desole, notre mauvais," for the number of bugs in the update?

For those stating "Just give them an IS-6"... Thats not what the guys who bought the Fearless want! That suggestion is laughable. Most already have an IS-6, it was bought because of the rarity and unique camo.

 

I do like the suggestion of a CDC as compensation! I am a sucker for premiums.

Since people who bought the IS-6 Fearless are most likely collectors; give them a choice of some other rare tank as compensation? 

 

Tanks like: Ke Ni Otsu, Victory, Fury, and M60? Trying to think of other tanks that are semi-rare or that people would really want.

Im one of the guys who purchased the fearless and had it removed.  Not upset about it, but understandably disappointed.  The reason we bought it is because we are collectors and it was rare, so offering another rare tank for us to purchase would be really cool.  Something like the IS-2, the M4A3E2 or other rare tanks would make me very happy.

For those saying "Give them regular IS-6" as Juju mentioned above, many who got the Fearless already have a IS-6.

 

Myself being one of them :D

 

So if it were to happen, wouldn't those who got the Fearless just get gold as compensation?

@cc_sly hope you read this tomorrow!

 

First off, I would just like to bring up the fact that you are [considering] wiping fearless stats from players records since you took it back, but yet the mk1 still remains? Yes it is an event, but it is also a un-alterable stat in my record and that is fustrating to me. 

 

Anyhow

 

imo, people should have known. MORE than blatently obvious it was a mistake, even if I did get hyped up. Going to apple to get refunds is far too much, so I would propose a refund OF THE PLAYERS CHOICE (gold, 35:1 gold value in free xp, boatloads of boosters, tank(s) etc). If they are gonna drop 25 bucks on a new feature, this isnt their first rodeo, and the money will most likely not be missed. If they still throw a fit, then maybe offer refunds. Even if you do lose out a few, it was a mistake...

 

Or give them a cdc

 

I mean, it clearly states in eula you can do basically whatever you want, and you more than compensated them. So as I always say, get a straw

Spoiler

 

 

 

Also, if you take one thing from this;

 

if you do the rename thing or substitute a new tank, please put it back in shop and/or sell it. Many people were downloading and/or sleeping. Its not like its the kenny too, just a normal is6. Now am (still) 2 tanks away from having every tank :))))

 

This, and I'm still 2 away too... BC apparently, every prem in the game is not "Loyal" enough... WG won't get my $ again until I am PROPERLY compensated, on MY TERMS. They messed up. deal closed. If they want another deal for the negotiation of their goods back, thats fine with me, but stealing it out of my pocket overnight? that was low.

I think it's a bit outrageous for WG to give us a free tank. They've already paid us back, the only thing I need to do is get my credits back, that's all.

 

Sly, I don't need anything else in return, just please try harder to not let something like this happen again xD

And the gift shop is a wonderful feature, my friend has never spent a dime on this game but he's been wanting a premium tank, I was able to buy an IS-6 for him. He doesn't keep up with this stuff so even when it wasn't a Fearless, he was still really happy and that made me happy

In case you haven't heard it was only the people who bought the tank in the gifting system that got their tanks recalled. So an authentic owner like you would see no change.

Honestly I'd just be happy with a nice Gold compensation, or a chance to buy the Ke-Ni Otsu etc. (even more $$ to earn for WG)

Wargaming has a lot of options here to keep their customers happy.

I talked to consumer affairs! They agree 100%  Wargaming is breaking consumer laws! Since Wargaming gave out the products right way (IS-6 fearless & 8.8 jagdtiger storm) and we the consumer was able to have it for the hole day and night. Then Wargaming took the product back this morning knowingly that they screwed up. And not giving the consumer back his or her money but exchanged for gold has consumer affairs very interested in this case! I was also told by consumer affairs to go to me local MLA (Members of the Legislative) get them more involved in this. So any of you that purchased one of these tanks like i did thinking that it was o.k to purchase and have. Please phone up consumer affairs talk to them and go talk to your local MLA don't let these  scam artist do this to the app world of gaming! 

 

 

 

I understand the frustration, but here's the deal. They gave you back what you gave them. If they had sold the tank for a purchase price, they would've had to refund the money. But they sold it for gold. So when they removed the tank, you got your gold back. The fact that you spent money on the gold is immaterial. Gold is the currency of the game, you could've bought the gold for any number of uses outside of buying a tank. Chances are, you already do.

 

Also, picture this. Let's say I purchased gold a month ago, but never used it. Now I use it to buy a Fearless. They take the Fearless and give me my gold back. How does WG determine who gets compensated money for gold that was bought SPECIFICALLY for the purchase of a Fearless, and those that just used gold they already had? Asking for monetary reimbursement just doesn't make sense.

Alright - let's get this thing settled. 

 

Main points:

  1. The IS-6 Fearless and the Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 were put on the Gift Store.
  2. They were able to be gifted.
  3. This was not intended.

 

What we did/are doing

  1. We removed the IS-6 Fearless and Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 from the Gift Store.
  2. We removed all gifted IS-6 Fearless and Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 from the accounts.
  3. We returned the gold used to gift all IS-6 Fearless and Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 tanks.
  4. Players who purchased any equipment for a gifted IS-6 Fearless or Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 can submit a ticket to support for a full refund of the credits used.
  5. We will be providing all players who had a gifted IS-6 Fearless or Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 removed from their account the following:
    • 1x Certificate for 24 h of Premium Account
    • 5x Combat XP Boosters (60%)
  6. If a player that was Gifted the IS-6 Fearless or Snowstorm Jagdtiger 8,8 sold their normal IS-6 or Jagdtiger 8,8, send in a ticket and we will restore them without using an exception. 

 

Things that are in discussions 

  1. Will/Can we wipe the stats of the gifted tanks from players accounts?
  2. Bring up the idea of having people use the gold they purchased when the IS-6F and Snowstorm to purchase other limited time tanks.
    • I can bring this up as an option but I am not sure we can ID the people properly in any sort of timely manner.

 

I will be watching this topic and trying to answer any questions I can. If another point comes up I can add it to the "Things that are in discussions" section. I will continue to bring your concerns and feedback to the decision makers and will do my best to make sure every concern is heard.

 

OMFG - because thus is easier than letting them keep the tanks that were sold!!! wth

Yeah, CDC perhaps with that legendary camo.  The combined gold value will exceed that of an IS6.  A pretty good comprise and people dont have to gamble their way to it instead.

Not really, remeber that people paid cash, not gold, for the tank.  Getting the gold back isnt really here or there.

 

The other issue is damage control, people are upset and annoyed.  Giving a free tank isnt exactly that big a deal.  I got a 112 for free with something like 200-300 games.

 

While I think a free IS6 is a tad too much, but a tier 2 premium in the T1E6?

 

(btw I dont have an IS6 and didn't buy the Fearless)
