Unfortunately I don't have any information. Raibot01 would be the point of contact and has mentioned it's being worked on. We just need to hang tight until the information is available. :honoring:

End of passion play, crumbling away I'm your source of self destruction. Veins that pump with fear,sucking darkest clear leading on your death's destruction. Taste me you will see more as you need dedicated to how im killing you.

Looking it up still won’t help. I think WG uses a different dictionary than the rest of the world does...

Hello,

 

Just releasing the name of the final reward makes no sense at all because we'd expected the final reward to be announced BEFORE launch or on the last ECHO season announcement day.

What she said was a couple of days or weeks and should get it before the month is over.

It's going to be the M60 Patton.

Just a guess, but the tank has been decided. It only just occurred to someone recently that people might need the ability to skip a month or 2 for it to be fair. I would imagine it is the mechanics of earning it or skipping bits that is being worked out and explained. 

 

I can also imagine that as soon as the X tank is announced they will be bombarded with questions about earning it and what ifs... WG have decided to go with Damned If They Don't and probably can't give us anything until it is all ready no matter how much we, or they, want to. Frustrating, but I can't blame them.

People will cry, complain or whine regardless of what info they release. Can you really blame them for not releasing?

Wow, you know not one, not two, but more than one thousand players who quit playing WoT, and not only that but you know them well enough to know their exact reasoning for leaving? How do you find time to talk to them all?

 

I don't think I know a thousand people well enough to know their hobbies, much less know that they play video games, much less know they play on a console, much less know that they've ever played WOT, much less know they've quit, much less know when they quit, much less know why they quit, much less find a thousand who quit for the same reason!

 

That's pretty amazing!

Yeah yeah yeah, he’s exaggerating, we know. But don’t tell me you don’t know players who quit this game at the moment the Marketing Department took over and the Gameplay Department got slashed to a minimal skeleton crew that is to monetize the assets PC is delivering them. Sure they can ‘balance’ them the way they see fit, throw different existing parts on other parts and call them ‘Mercenary Tanks’, but don’t come up with anything that costs money...

 

So yeah, this probably is all about the marketing. Very very dubious marketing too...

The dev team has over 150 people that's not a skeleton crew where is everyone here getting their figures and facts?

It’s a fact WGCB closed up offices, it’s a fact they were left with less employees than before. It’s a fact their marketing strategy changed to a focus on pushing out reskins. You’re around since 2015, so you should’ve been around when all this changed. 

 

It’s my interpretation that the personnel they have now, is a relative skeleton crew, compared to before. It’s my interpretation that lack of assets to use is the reason that bug fixes take longer and longer. Granted, I don’t know that for sure. On the other hand, how could I? WG tells us next to nothing about anything. Which, also a fact, is a different attitude towards our playerbase than they had in earlier days. 

 

So yeah, you’re right to say I’m not purely basing my post on facts. You can’t say that there’s no substance behind what I’m saying, though...

you do know game publishers regularly lay off and hire people right? Their offices weren't closed down btw they were moved. Your Interpretation is based solely on your opinion and anecdotal evidence not objective fact. You have no basis for how you seem to think wg is running things. I at least base my opinions on facts and common practices in the industry as well as the things they say about how they run which they've done many times on the past. A game like this cannot run on a skeleton crew. I suggest you read up more on game design and the game industry in general you'd probably make less inaccurate statements. Wg certainly has problems but it's not from a lack of personnel it's from those in charge not using their teams correctly and making really idiotic decisions especially if the glass door reviews are to be believed which do have negative reviews mixed in with positive ones. Research is your friend. REAL research not Google

Possible tier 10 premium? I heard that floating around. Be cool if it were like the m60 .

My experience shows that 2 weeks playing in a month are more than enough to finish the monthly Op. So I’m not concerned for the prize due to my breaks or vacations here and there. But the lack of information how this will work is still very frustrating. 
Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Hi Max and Raibot. 

 

I have an issue...I am going on holiday for two weeks in September and a further week in October this year. 

 

Now whilst that is awesome (and very much needed), not knowing how this will effect my chance to obtain the end of year prize is highly frustrating. 

 

Am am I going to have to smash it out before I go potentially not enjoying the task? If I don’t manage it, will I be able to still obtain the end of year prize? What actually IS the end of year prize?!?!?

 

I understand you don’t want to tell everyone what the tank is for a fear of reprisal, but the longer you wait to tell us, the more you stand to lose. From my perspective, if I have to miss Septembers off and monthly grind off and as a result can not obtain the end tank, even though I will more than likely do all of the other months, I think that would be it for me! 

 

So what EXACTLY am I saying?

 

1) you need to tell us how missing one month or more will effect the end prize!!! Life gets in the way sometimes and not everyone can always complete each task. I know three people I used to play with that are no longer playing as “there’s no point”...

 

2) you really need to disclose more information about the end of year tank. In June we were going to be told in two weeks...that’s over a month back from when this was said. You said very recently that in the next few days we would receive information on the tank....the definition of a few is exactly three days. That’s passed by too. - YAY - Object 279 early

 

This really isn't a biggie to ask. We need to know soon or you’ll more than likely annoy enough people that you may as well close up shop. 

 

Hope you can can at least answer these questions and give us an exact roadmap of when we will know. 

 

Kind regards

Chris

 

Hi again Max and Rai.

 

Just bringing this back to the top as something that needs to be answered. 

 

Firstly, thank you for giving some details on the end of year prize. However, nothing has been said about exactly how missing one or two months will effect the chance of the prize.

 

Could you ask whoever you need to ask / put in a ticket / tickle Pains belly so that we get this information as soon as possible?

 

Thank you

Chris
