Oh yeah, a whole 30% silver discount makes the difference in a game where you can make millions of silver an hour with all of the freebies being given out.

 

Makes a difference to me.  I'm waiting until we get a 30% tier X sale to buy about 6-7 tier X tanks.  I'm not going to buy them unless we get that discount, as I hardly ever play tier X.

 

My dislike of +/- 1 pales in comparison to my hatred of Loaded Dice.

Maybe it's not for you but certainly was for me. I wouldn't have purchased it otherwise. :honoring:

Or On Track for new lines and not two lines that have been out for years. 

Polish, Italian, Chinese, Czech would be better than American and Soviet tanks that have been around for much longer. 

 

 

Maybe it's one week per a bunch of different lines though. 


If I only had a Baneblade....

Seriously, who doesn't have the is7 or m48 by now?

 

How about for something useful, give us the chance to pick one line per tanker that we can activate the xp bonus and discounts on?

 

Then we can all grind something we need.

 

If the renew rate of the games populatiuon was "normal" there should be alot of players interrested, the problem is that unlikely in other games, the population of WoT is in their majority always the same guys that never get bored from the game and so making it difficult for new players to enter
Often times, people simply deny the existence of what they do not understand, and anyone who tells them otherwise is a liar. What they don't know stays unexplained and they are happy with that

Jeez, I actually can't believe how many long term players haven't finished these lines, or haven't bought the tier X tank during previous discounts.

 

As someone mentioned above, it's good that they brought the op back, but why pick two of the original lines, one of which is probably in the top 3 of most played tanks.

 

Either make it clear that this is going to be weekly for the foreseeable future so lots of lines are covered, or my proposed idea so that everyone gets an op that it useful.

 

Also +1 to the guy who predicted the E100 next, I'm going for the E5!

I haven't gotten many of the tier xs that have come over the years yet so far. Got quite a few over the summer but still grinding it out

Keep the event coming, I have a lot of tier 9's to grind and tier 10s to purchase.  Didn't have the M48 Patton until Monday.  Don't have the IS-7 either.

I haven't even bought the Pershing. T20 was the last American tech tree medium I played. That was 2 years ago.

I don't have the M48 either. I should but I've not enough time for grinding and it depresses the hell out of me. I just play with what's in the garage these days.

 

Might get the hundo out from under it's sheet if that was an on track if only to hammer the noob hudos with the small gun :trollface:

I don’t quite understand why everyone is so broke all the time on this game and refuses to purchase tanks unless they’re on sale. I seldomly play my premium tanks and run premium consumables and fire maybe 15-20% gold ammo but I’ve got 53 million credits laying around with nothing to buy

 

300ish tanks on my garage and at least 100 of them have full equipment loads.

Yes, if you only keep 10-20 tanks in your garage then of course you have loads of silver. I have probably 330+ tanks in the garage and quite a lot of them are fully equipped and supplied and ready for battle. I am about 12 tier X purchase away from having all the tier X's in my garage and equipped, so yes....I am often looking for silver.

because it's not important?

Because some or us don't get time to play that much, so choose to play tanks nations we want to. Instead of getting caught up in a race to tier X.

Why are you being so negative about this event?

Hell, its only week two.  I'm sure WG will eventually do 'on-track' for a tank you want. There's no need to ruin an old classic.

There are many new players in this game. WG has to do OPs for them as well as the older players. It is the nature of F2P games that you have to do things not just for the older players or for one group of players. I personally know many players who do not have the IS-7 or are in the game for less than 3 years. Platooned the other day with a few players that have not gotten past tier VIII yet & have played less than 2 years. OPs like these help them as they helped us older players when the game was newer.

Hello,

 

Didn't have the patton and was on the last ditch effort to grind it with the Chisel contract requirements so... bullseye.

 

Now for the IS7, long time ago I sold the IS3, and never wanted back. I suspect it will never be the case because now I own a Scourge and a kirovets, which are better IS3s with no pike nose weak spot.

All the complaints about these On Tracks.  I can’t wait to see what happens when they do the On Track: T92. :trollface:

I made an observation and came up with a potential solution that is good for everyone not a select few. Not sure how this is being "negative"

 

Did I whine that it should have been line A, B or C? Instead of the ones that were chosen, so it suited me instead of others?

 

Or is voicing an alternative opinion that is different to your own automatically negative? If WG gets no rounded feedback, then how can things improve?

 

Next time I'll just not bother, the events won't be more inclusive and I'll play the tanks I was going to anyway.

On Track ops were much better when it was changed frequently.

So here we are in week 4 and we get two lines to choose from, finally some increased choice.

 

However still some of the oldest lines in the game (ignoring tier X scout introduction)

Why not the newer British TD line, or some of lines from Italian, polish or swedish trees?

 

I thought I'd read that this was a one month thing, hopefully it continues.
