If you own one or both tanks, will the op substitute the tank with gold or silver? If so, which of the two?

 

I’d like an answer from WG on this. I’ve got members in my clan with one or more of the reward tanks. If the substitution is in gold, this would make the promotion worth it for most of them to to join in.

I'd be shocked if they did.

 

Even with the silver reward, it's a nice 4.8 million silver reward which will be well used considered the number of Tier 10 tanks that will be shortly added to the game.

 

Although, to be honest, I'm looking forward to the Churchill III more since I've never had the chance to buy it while it's been on sale.

I wish if someone could do proper detailed tutorial about how to do everything right *looks at WG*

 

Yes Jope, that's still needed. I didn't go further in details as Twitch has one website while Amazon has several, one for each nation/zone, and they might be a little different from one another so I decided to not post a highly detailed guide to avoid confusion as my directions might not work on, say, the US site (even though your Amazon account works on any site, Prime features are "local bound"). WG might need to do a guide for each different Amazon site.

I linked my Amazon Prime account to my Twitch account, so now I have a Twitch Prime Account, but I use a different email address for my Twitch account than the email address I use for my Xbox Live/WoT Console account. So will I be able to link my WoT Console account to my Twitch Prime account on the 30th? I am just a little confused right now.

 

Yes, that's how it usually work. You'll have to link your Twitch and Xbox/PS account: you should get an automatic prompt when you redeem the WoT Mercenaries goodies, but you should be able to do it from your Twitch account settings anyway

it did need card for me and videos are working for me on amazon now and i had allready existing twitch account, but it wont let me to link those to get that trial on twitch

 

I subscribed to Prime a few years ago, 2012 I think, now things have probably changed. Sorry if my information wasn't correct. 

 

I see some encountered unexpected troubles while linking the accounts. Be aware that you can link accounts from either the Twitch page or the Amazon page, but my brother kept getting errors using the former (problems with the credit card billing) while it worked like a charm using the feature available on the Amazon page, that's why I suggested to operate from there.

 

Then I forgot to add that Twitch asks you to confirm pretty much every step of the linking process, going as far as asking for authorizations and administrator-like privileges. The first time I went a little "whoa!" and chickened away out of caution, interrputing the process. Just a heads-up.

I think it's not available yet

 

However links to your Twitch account can be found and changed going to settings -> links:

1) Go to www.twitch.tv and log in

2) Click on your avatar on the top right and choose "settings"

3) To navigate your settings check the tabs right below the huge "Settings" title: you sould see your Profile tab, Twitch Prime Tab and so on - the last one should be "Links". Click on it and go there.

4) Here will be listed some available links (by the way, you can try to link your Amazon account here as well). Right now I don't see any Xbox Live or Playstation accounts available, maybe they'll appear on the 30th. Remember that there is no real World of Tanks Console account, instead the XBL and PS are used (if you see a "Wargaming.net" or a "World of Tanks" account, it's likely to be the PC one).

This is exactly what i am talking about. There are no PS,XBL, WoT or any other services listed to link.

I can confirm you that I don't have XBL or PS links too, probably it's not available yet.

I do have the Wargaming.net link though, and clicking it sends me to the official WoT PC page on the Wargaming.net website, with instructions on how to link the Wargaming.net account (for PC) to Twitch.

 

PSA - the description for the Alpha Pack on Twitch Prime has just been modified: it's stated that PC players can redeem it now but console players will be able to do it only after the 30th of October and to check later for further instructions

It does not state that the Pack can be redeemed for one Platform only (while it does for the October Warframe Prime pack) - but I don't know if it's an oversight or if can be actually redeemed on both PC and console.

 

On the World of Tanks official page (I reached it following the Twitch Prime link) is clearly stated that the Pack is a PC exclusive (and the contents are slightly different than the ones advertised on the Console News Portal), so my guess is that they're actually two different packs. So we do need Raibot or Max to clear this for us.

 

Thanks for tuning :)

That's because both Twitch and Wargaming Console are based in the US. Right now (11.05 Berlin/Paris/Rome time) it's still early morning in the US. Give them some to time to start working and wait till the the mid/late afternoon before panicking… :child:

 

Beside there's a server restart taking place, wait for that to be over too.

For anyone wondering, the servers are expected to be back up at 0500 Pacific Standard time

 

That's 1200 British standard time

 

0800 USA East Coast 

 

Across Europe it will be around about lunch time depending on what country, the further east the later the time. 

 

 

From the time of this type up it will be about 1 hour and 27 minutes.

Yes, link her amazon to your twitch. That's what I have done and it worked on PC. Just hope I can still redeem it on Console.

Sorry Max, can't say for sure :( 

 

Anyway, claiming it on the Twitch Prime page is fine (I've already done so too), but once you link your PC account, log-in and get the goodies in-game, I don't know if it can be done for XB1 too.

There are three clues that make me think they're not mutually exclusive: it doesn't state you can redeem on one Platform only, the PC goodies are for PC only and the console version is actually different. Still, it's just my opinion and you should take it with a few spoons of salt.

For a comparison, items for Warframe are clearly stated to be redeemable on only one Platform of your choice, and it's done through the game's own website which is used to manage any console(and PC) account through XBL and PS logins.
