Thanks for the gifts!  For this being a "free to play" game it's wild how many players complain about not getting free stuff in a free game.

Its not the free stuff.  Free stuff is always welcomed.

 

If your wife gave you the same thing for your 5th anniversary that she gave you for XMAS 3 years ago wouldnt you be pissed?

 

5 years is a long time.  WG just re-gifted a crappy tier 3 tank we've gotten twice already.

 

THATS the insult.  No thought was involved at all.  "Lets just re-gift them the LTP again".   <insert Belorussian chuckling, giggling, and guffaws here>

Its not when you played your first battle...its when you opened/created your WoT account.

 

no, that's not it.....my account, as previously mentioned, started on 04/22/13, and I just received the 2-3 year account reward.  For the 3-4 year reward it clearly states 'Must have registered from April 30, 2012 to April 30, 2013'.  And I didn't get that one.  So, how do they ACTUALLY figure the date?

people talking about being given a type 59 are just being ridiculous.  i'm not the least interested in the LTP, again, but asking for a tier 8 premium tank?  even if it isn't/wasn't OP, even for a premium tank, it's tier 8.  setting an expectation of anything above(not about) tier 4 is beyond unreasonable.  the garage slots are nice, if you need them.  would be nice if you could sell them back, for half price(converted to credits), when you're like me and only carry 8 or 10 tanks, and have nearly 20 empty slots available, but that's a wish, not a remote expectation. 

 

do i wish they'd give us better stuff for free, on the anniversary of the game?  no doubt.  should i be an ungrateful, whining brat because they didn't?  no.  if the gifts for being here are insulting to you and cause you to leave WoT, then so be it.  the community will likely be better off without you, anyway.  be thankful that they gave you anything at all and most of it is at least somewhat useful toward the game.  other games give out entirely cosmetic nonsense, if they give out anything.  and many games don't do anything more than say thank you for playing.  and remember, it's not like you have to pay them any money to play this game, so they are already giving you the game for free.  expecting more because you keep taking their free stuff is just ludicrous.

My beef isnt the LTP, which is about what I expected ( a low tier tank). My beef is that the other servers have been getting good stuff like the Pz IIJ and PZ IV Hydro and we get zip.

I can see how that would be frustrating for sure.  This week seems like it'll turn out to be low tier LTP clubbing week.  Bring out your best tier 3!

​no way they're handing out pz2js, that's like a 200 euro tank, who knows what that is in USD. I would have liked to get the Japanese light that I somehow missed in my 4.5 years, the one with like 18 degrees of gun dep

​Does it include a worthy and decent, and an actual "rare" free tank? or something actually worth something to the "veteran" players? or is it just sales and specials?

free rare prem tanks, and an LTP. for someone been playing for 5 years...

give me the mutant M6. :angry:

 

 

I would have to agree. LTP for 5 years vs that same LTP for 0-1 years....

 

Only difference is you get more boost's Woo Hoo (Not) and Garage Slots. I still have 15 free slots sitting empty and 100+ tanks in garage!!!! 

 

LTP for a new member and an old member Lame.

My guess it will be Sales and specials only...* Squeeze the Dime from the members who stuck around and supported the game.*

What I can never understand is whats with the big national secret?

What the plan is to give a crappy 5th Anniversary prem tank piss off its members then come out with a sale on another rare tank ***That we will see 5 times from now until x-mass that will be posted as a last chance to get this tank for some time*** That trick pony is dead from WG unless your a new member that is...

 

Ghost why does WG treat it's NA members like we don't see the pattern run time and time again by this company?

I have supported this game like many other long time members just to get pissed off by the way that this company treats us.

 

Enough is enough how about posting up whats in store for 5th Anniversary stuff and have the members put away their pitchforks and torches or let them all sit and stew over it.

 

* I myself could care less, been around long enough to know how things work for the NA members.

 

I just roll with it to the point its been close to 18 months I have not spent a dime, And I really find that sad for a game I really do want to support and have in the past.

Until WG treats its members with a little more respect that's how my wallet will stay *Closed* Mind you I am sure Steam will be sending you a thank you card shortly as my game income has been flowing in that direction.

If you have the tank sell it before you play this event. That way you can at least get the tank with another garage slot. So a total of 5 slots from the event. Assuming my math skills are correct :P

 

Just to add to this. I have the LTP and have never driven it. That says something. Last event that I enjoyed was for the T14 which I owned. Got gold instead and used that to buy the Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai. I think that was the last time WG converted free/earned premiums into gold.

My question is, the five year emblem, is it a one time deal, or will we all receive it once we surpass the five year mark, which I will doing in a couple more months?

If you have the tank you get the slot, crew and 340,000 credits.
