Thought you were taking this anniversary event to the next level???? Well you came up well short of what was expected by a paying player base.... Good luck with that.

No offense to Wargaming, but this anniversary was awful. I've been in World of Tanks for about 3-4 years now and I remember the LTP like it was given out not that long ago. Everyone already has it......... And those who have been playing for longer than I have deserve better then this. And there are plenty of tanks that can be created for low teirs if they don't wan to give out high teirs. Example: M42 Duster or one of the LVT series. And if it's not tanks give us gold to use for tanks, camo, crew, etc. But very disappointing anniversary this year.......... And that anniversary video was not very serious either, so maybe fix that a little too ;)

I guess they don't want me to spend credits, gold or money -- thx for looking out for me, WG

My fifth anniversary weekend:

 

Sweet! I can pick up that new tier 8 I've been waiting for! Done.

Hmmm, equipment isn't on sale, don't want to take equipment off my other tanks just to kit this one out. How much silver do I have? Oh, not enough, ok, guess I'll wait on equipment.

Consumables? Not on sale? AGAIN!?! Well, still, not that expensive, sure I'll drop 9k on those, why not? I'm not dead broke.

Now let's see about my crew. No retraining! so, 800 gold to switch them over at 100%? Will 700 gold cover it no? Didn't think so. Buy more gold? Yeah, never gonna happen. 80% retrain, so I can grind that crew up again, which I've already done and hated? No thanks. Oh, look at all these crew training personal reserves you give me for the slightest excuse, yeah, still not interested. So eff it, logging off, maybe next weekend.

 

(Next weekend will no doubt be the same, I just won't be buying the tier 8)

Thanks but the 5 yr anniversary stuff isn't enough for me to re-install and play again  -- not complaining, just giving feedback in case WG is interested.

 

Didn't we used to get gold when selling back a tank?  Now it's just silver?!?!  If so, even more reason to $pend my time elsewhere...

 

Catch ya'll for the 6 yr anniversary (maybe...).

I just took a look at the WoT Asia website. They have more offers, bonuses and specials there on a standard non-event weekend than NA does on their 5th anniversary (except with x3 and not x5). Haven't checked any other regions as it's just too damned depressing. Thanks guys and happy anniversary. Have five for us.

 

(Edit)  PS - Anyone have any tips on setting out a new AW account?

I was excited to get this reward when it occurred, in fact I distinctly remember uttering some kind of "YEAH!" out loud.

 

But that was immediately followed by a groan when I realized the "free tank" was an LTP, which I've owned for at least 2 years now.

 

LTP is certainly an okay tank that can provide some fun, but it's a Tier 3 and who plays tier 3's after their first 6 months at the game???

 

Seriously WG-NA, you give a Tier 3 tank as an award to a player who has been playing for 3-4 years??  Like we're not gonna own it already?

 

My disappointment in that moment was tempered a bit.  "At least you get the gold" said one of my Clan-mates over Teamspeak...  and of course, he was quickly corrected by the other clan members - "No you don't get gold, WG-NA changed that, now you only get silver credits."

 

So I went from being excited to get this award package, to within a matter of mere moments, to being depressed.  "I didn't even notice the change in my silver credits" was all I remember thinking.

 

So thanks for the LTP that most of us 3-4 year players already have, and thanks for NOT giving us the gold equivalent for the tank.

 

Maybe I'm being rude (yes, I'm certainly being rude in some sense), but I'm also being completely honest about how I feel.  What do they say? Never look a gift horse in the mouth?  Well I have no idea what the saying means, but maybe that's what I'm doing?  Complaining about someone giving us something for free?

 

Well, thanks for the thought anyways, WG-NA, I guess that's what counts, not the tank, or not the gold/silver credits.

Because we didnt beg for free crap, and giving away a tank that everyone who has played for 3+ years has already been given isnt a gift.

 

Not everyone has played for 3+ years.. Perhaps they should have had different tanks for each level, but they decided not to.

Have to agree with other posters, this is a poor excuse for an anniversary, 5th or otherwise.

 

Having to spend some time playing to obtain your "gift" seems to just be a way to get an uptick in server numbers. The more they ignore the older players, the more wil leave. There will never be enough new players to make that up and grow.

 

Rare? If you could have identical tanks in the garage, i'd have an LTP platoon by now...
