Also the x3 boosts, you couldn’t deactivate after winning them in the stages. Unfortunately they got used for no purpose at all. Would have gotten use if I could have held them until the French heavy line came out.

I like the new winter games op structure better. easier to get points since all of them are gold. rewards are nice. You don't have to play hours and hours every day to get the reward points. Seems like a much better system for reward tanks.

Winter games is a fantastic op! The structure is perfect. Rewards are plentiful and appreciated. 

 

I love the fact the ops are all active so I do not need to turn them on and off depending on the tank I use. I would rather have all ops 'on' like this all the time. Even the 'Long Haul' op should be always active. If a player sees their close to 75 wins they may be enticed to grind it out rather than not challenging it due to the fact they didn't activate the op the first few days.

I have the M4 Thunderbolt on PC, it was in the december sales calendar. It's a slightly uparmoured M4 Easy 8 with normal matchmaking. So, don't expect anything particularly outstanding about it. The 76mm gun's pen is crap in tier 8 matches but that's par for the course. However it still is a good tank, especially when you can get it for free by just playing.

Was just wondering if we complete the alpha winter games will we still be able to accumulate points, such as after getting 415 points which carry over to the next chain of ops will we be able to gain more than the 415 points of the last op in this chain.

Nope, like any OP, the OP goes away when it is complete.     Its 500 not 415.     The 2x for every battle after completing the ops is awesome.

:ohmy: Winter Games is a nice Change, especially multiple OPS and not the infamous "not on Your first win".

By the amount of Silver and even Gold as well as possible free Premium Tanks WGA put out now... Mercenaries mustve slayed half the Players Base.

Lets just hope they havent killed the Game for Good.

Maybe this is just bolstering the remainders, opening the flood Gates for WoWarships.

It’s great that all of the ops are automatically on from the start, EXCEPT I would prefer that the player can select when to use the 20 X3 XP bonus!

 

At first, I thought this was going to be a 500 pt OP for 1 month.

 

Now I find out it’s going to be 3 months!

 

Good looking reward tank, though wish you could give us the tank stats and XP/Silver earnings, at the start of the OP

 

 

 

3 months for 1500 Pt though... :great:

I just want to put in my 2 cents, I agree with most all of the positive comments already made.  This op has been great in providing a variety of different goals so we don’t have everybody trying for kills or other single goal.  All of the daily ops being active is great,so that I don’t have to decide which ones to select and then find myself achieving the unselected goals and missing the selected.  The bonus ops have also been great in providing a means of playin catchup if you miss a day or two of daily ops.

 

i would like to see more ops like this.

 

btw, the premium bonus is also a nice benefit as well.

Yep, Bravo starts on Feb 1st then Charlie starts March 1st, you need to do all 3 to get it for Free but for each one you do, you get a 50 or a 75% Discount on the Tank (Similar to Tankbowl for MVP).

Big thumbs up WG! This has been an excellently implemented OP. I missed the whole first week and was still able to easily finish this first stage with moderate play time. Love it! While I might not have gone for the Thunderbolt in a stand alone OP like we’ve had before, I have no complaints about it being the 1st quarter reward. Can’t wait to see what tanks come next. Keep up the great work!

Hello tankers!

 

Please share your feedback regarding the new structure of incoming Ops!

Information about the new structure can be found here: https://console.worl...ews/2019-events

 

Winter Games Alpha information can be found here: https://console.worl...ter-games-alpha

 

Completing All Winter Game Phases for the Months of January, February, and March will earn you the M4A3E8 Thunderbolt VII US Tier 6 Medium Tank

SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK!!

 

ROLL OUT!

Hey Rai.

 

So I was wondering if the Winter Games Thunderbolt VII was going to have a similar finish like the Boilermaker?

https://console.worldoftanks.com/en/news/fight-boilermaker-details

 

I expect that I will earn the Thunderbolt no problem, but I might not be able to wait that long. The same thing happened with me and the Boilermaker. So I was happy to get a gold reward. What will happen if we purchase before completing the Winter Games?

 

Thanks.

The new OPs structure is good, I like it, though sometimes mixing it up is good

Bit early to say how the 3 month win a tank OP will go, so far it's good, most players should be able to win it. Seems to be helping players keep playing, made me play a bit more

 

Pros

Dont have to select which 3 OPs to be running, which feels like which ones you won't run and can be frustrating, eg if you pick a OP which needs a win and you dont get one

A good game can win on all OPs that count

You can win a lot more goodies

The win a tank doesnt depend on super-skill, having a free weekend, luck, getting wins etc

I actually really like this new op structure. I completed winter games alpha on my main account with 16 days left and am currently working it on my secondary account CookedRock236 wich at the rate I'm going should be done by the 28th or 29th of January no problem. The second account is mainly for my grandkids to mess with so they don't mess up my main  account. These ops were a great idea and a turn in the right direction for the game.:) Keep Tanking
