WG is a company that everyone can be proud to be involved with...and this proves it!  I've been an avid gamer for over 30 years, and I've never seen such good-spirited philanthropy out of a gaming company...Wargaming.net is a Russian-owned for-profit entity that voluntarily involves itself in charities all around the world (I'm sure there are similar charity drives on the EU and RU servers), and in so doing raises the consciousness of its millions of players.  Before all this, I had never heard of all those veterans' charity organizations and rarely thought about injured veterans, and the debt that all of us who live in freedom owe to their sacrifice.  Like many, I've also looked at war through rose-colored glasses, focusing on the honor and glory aspects without thinking about the physical and mental toll that combat situations place on our soldiers.

What I'm trying to say is...thank you, WG...you've created an awesome game (two, actually...stay tuned ;) ) that I can't stop playing, you've reeducated me about the cost of war and the value of giving back to our brave veterans, and you've made me feel good about spending my hard-earned cash on gold, knowing that part of it will go to some of the best causes there are, and the other part will go to a great gaming company with an excellent community of fans, devs, mods, staff, and managers!

why cant I buy more than 2 t-127's for my wifes account?  I was able to buy 5 for mine, but went to hook my wife up so that she could have some cheap gold and some garage slots, but it only let me buy 2?

I bought the T14 and T25 for myself and then went to get the T-127 and the T-15 but wouldn't let me buy them. This is my third day trying for the last 2 packages with no luck just playspan canceling the order each time I submit.

Great job WG! I just celebrated my 14th year in the service as a medic. I've had the pleasure of taking care of many of our vets. Now my only question is should I get a Church or a T14? :(

You will receive the equivalent gold value of the T14.

i paid the 14.95 and only received the 3000 in gold???  NO equivalent gold value of the T14 added?? i already had the T-14

The tank cost 1,500 in gold so i am short that amount..

submit a ticket, but from what I heard, it takes a while for the gold to be reimbursed (it wasn't done automatically after the purchase)

I'll buy some gold when these charity events go off. I believe that every government should take care of its own veterans, and if this fails, giving money as charity only increases the problem. If there is a failure in our system, and we are in crisis, this is the proof.

This is such a great thing you(WoT Admins) did for the veterans. I hope we do this sometime again this year because it was such a great feeling to donate to them.

The T14 package is $7.99 and comes with 1,000 gold & 1 garage slot.
The $14.95 package that gives you 3,000 gold doesn't include a tank.

Are you sure you bought the right package?

Well Done on giving back to the community.

I love charity drives in games, it encourages me to spend as I know some is dontaed when I don't normally spend anything on free games.

I hope you tell us in the end how much you donated to the different causes so we can see our money making a difference.

Now...... where did the T127 package go, that was value for money on gold conversion and tankslots??????

Bring back the $3.99 pack haha (please).

I got the 49$ donation. I hate it when I get called a wallet warrior but the regular folks forget that its us wallet warriors that make the game better.  Plus I will donate just because for Vets any time bonus that I like this game.
Proud wallet warrior and Donator!!

Do they put a cap on the number of gift packages you can buy?

edit: for example I have bought multiple T-14 gift packages, currently if I try to buy anymore the order will process but it won't go through and I will get rufunded the amount a little while later.
