you are correct that it says that on the portal. However the fact that I received the tank before they posted the event makes me think they messed up and didn't intend to give it to previous owners without completing the mission.

 

Except the portal is always jacked up compared to what's going on in game. Web content manager get's a :facepalm: / 10

That's how I read it..

How Do I Get the FV4202 (P)?

You have three ways to pick it up:

  1. You previously fought at least one battle in the tier X FV 4202We will gift you the tank and a Garage slot, FREE!
  2. You complete the special FV4202 (P) mission
  3. You buy it when it becomes available later in the Premium Shop and tech tree.

 

​OK, I have a problem here. I bought the tank about 2 years ago but haven't played any battle on it. Should I ask Customer service if they can add it instead of doing the mission?

Ok next question, I got the FV.

 

- Will I get to do the missions when it comes out?

- If I do, completing them missions would compensate me for silver?

 

Second that.  If we do the on track missions, and qualify for the 4202 again, what do we get? Gold? Silver?

I did none of the mission requirements other than previously owning the FV 4202 (Tier X). I did not play a single battle in it for I was waiting for it to be replaced by the AX. I just played a game in the Chi-Ri an hour ago and at the post game screen was awarded this (terrible) tank.

 

You must have played at least one battle in it at some point.  I had the FV4202 never played.  It was replaced with the Action X which I still have not played.  No tank has shown up in my garage and I just finished a Cromwell battle.  I will even go and play a battle in my Chi-ri but I seriously doubt it will make a difference.  I do believe you had to have played at least one battle in the tank.

You will get silver IF they let you do the mission and you already have the tank.  That is WG new policy (that has been out for awhile now).

 I think we can ask Customer support if they can credit us the tank. They should have the record that you own the tank before the switch. You are the same with me, I bought the tank and haven't play any battle with it. I think it's fair because we actually owned the tank before.

so let me get this straight...

 

You need to do 750xp in a battle on the Centurion Action X... WHICH you can only complete ONCE per day... Meaning you need to wait 10 days BEFORE you even grind the 450,000Damage? 

 

This seems messed up, 4 days to grind 450,000 dmg its a lot... Even if you did 4K per battle, and each battle lasted 10 mins. You would need 112 battles and what not... Well, at least WG tried...

you can grind the 450K damage before you have completed the other missions.  Its an independent mission that come be done in tier 8-10 brit  medium in the line.

To the guys who are going to go out and buy one.. might as well wait a week to try it out for free when they "rent" it out to everyone with a dial up connection.

 

LoL

 

That weekend will be a good time to go take a vacation with all the swarms of 44% players :hiding:

What you think is right and what war gaming will do are two different things.  By all means feel free to contact customer service and see what happens.  No harm in asking!  You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!  If it works out for you let us know.

Thanks WGNA for bringing back some common sense in the Wargaming house.

 

Others servers should do the same as you did.

Every tanks replacement(and nerf) should be dealt the way you did.

Its been a while since Wargaming started changing (and nerfing) tanks without any compensation.

 

Back then, Wargaming gained my respect with how they dealt changes with American Heavy line (T30), Russian Heavy line (IS4) and French Med line(Bat Chat). I was feeling at the time that Wargaming was respecting their players and that they respected all the time (and sometimes the money) put into grinding by offering them true compensations.

 

After that things slowly went bad.

But for me the worse moment was when my newly arrived friend asked me which third line should he start to grind.  I said go for PzIV (Maus Line)  PzIV was at the time truly a strong tank. I thought that this tank would be a nice keeper for him in a decent line of tanks.  

I was furious when Wargaming decided to change and nerf the tank real bad.  The Pz 38 na grind was sooooooo bad at the time but I thought it was worth the effort. (I've been always fond of Tiger P also)

They nerfed the Pz IV so hard I was furious at myself and I was furious at Wargaming for not giving him any compensation for its PZ IV.

 

After more than 2 years...  WGNA decided to give for one time a true compensation for a tank change.

Thank you Wargaming NA!

I think you messed that up.

IIRC the 450,000 damage bit is completely separate. You have 14 days for that.

This is unbelievable. I had the 4202 unlocked and just waited to buy it and now I have to do some [edited]contrived mission cause I didn't play a game in it. Wargaming is such an amateur operation that has no communication with it's community and just does random things.

You were not an FV4202 owner, thus do not deserve compensation. They are giving the tank for free to those who had already owned one (which you did not), and also gave owners a free Centurion AX. Why do you deserve compensation for something you did not own?

 

Also, it was known for quite some time that they would be replacing the FV4202 with the Centurion AX, as well as making the FV4202 a Premium. It hasn't been any kind of secret.
