Thank you very much Wargaming.

 

As a Vet I appreciate the work Fisher House does. 

If you do not wish to help vets through the missions. Don't. 

No one is forcing anyone to do these missions.

 

As an average player I plan on trying to grind 100k Exp over the month. Will also donate on my own to the Fisher House.

 

Thanks again to WG for raising awareness about the great work Fisher House does and giving Tankers a chance to help by simply playing a game.

 

GL all who seek to complete the mission.

Seriously...100k experiance in a month is so easy to do.  4 games a day with the 2X daily at 500.points will get it.  You are going to play the game anyway so why the hell not.  The other thing I do is a LOT of charity...Kiwanis..Civitan...and a bunch more.  The question I have is for all you people posting about the tax deduction and complaining.  Have you ever asked a hungry kid if he wants the food or not because someone is writing it off on his taxes?  Have you ever driven a battered spouse and her kids to CASA while they cried and asked them if they would mind if you deducted the milage on your car?

This is a game...there lives are real.  Shut up and play.

I like the idea of an ingame mission and charity donation... Yes, charities are tax write-offs..., but just because they get a tax right off doesn't mean they are doing it just for money and it is a good thought.  The part I find amusing however is the cap on the amount they are willing to donate... up to $100,000...  I mean... why do a promotion of only a buck per 100,000 xp (for a lot of players, myself included, that's a good grind) then also put a cap... Why not leave it open and put a tally or something on each server and make a competition?  See which server can donate/raise the most? Maybe add some perks...  That'a'way you draw more attention to the game and have a bigger tax write-off.

It's pretty easy to get the necessary XP (I nearly did it this weekend and wasn't playing that much - I have a life); if WG will donate money to a good cause for that, then why carp? Even if their motives almost certainly aren't altruistic.

I was simply indicating the difference between the two. Veterans Day is geared to the appreciating the sacrifice of our veterans, both living and dead, and thus has a tone of gratitude. Memorial Day is about remembering our fallen service men and women, and thus has a more somber tone. 

 

Actually I believe WG is honoring Armed Forces Day this month, 21 May 2016..........

So let me get this straight, WG is giving money to a charity based upon your game play with no money coming out of your pocket. And there is complaining.

I cry for our country.

Hint: "up to X" usually means "We gave X, but we'll make it sound like the participants made a difference in how much we gave"

Lol, 1$ per player, up to $100,000? Being a little "optimistic" about our server population there, eh wargaming?

Only $99,999.00 to go.  Wasn't difficult at all to accomplish.  Thanks for supporting the Vets.

 Military March of Nations

Military Month not only brings donations to amazing organizations, but also brings you in-game discounts on our most popular nations! Low to mid-tier discounts during the week, and high-tier discounts on the weekend. Don't miss out!
Details on dates below

May 9-15: USSR

May 16-22: Germany

May 23-30: USA

May 30-June 6: UK

 

Do we know if this applies to specific tanks or tank lines, or all tanks in these nations?

1) You're bashing WG for giving you free reserves for just playing the game.

2) Who cares what amount they might or might not donate. It's on your behalf and if unhappy with the $1, go hit the link and pony up with a personal donation.

3) Who cares if folks say "Happy Veterans Day." I'm a veteran and I know their intention. I'd rather hear that than the typical "Thanks for your service."

4) And it's in celebration of Veterans thru out the world. Most of us in the US will be having Memorial Day weekend festivities (drinking, BBQs, etc.) and I wonder if you guys get any heat for that. Trolls should be saying that you shouldn't be having fun on such a somber day right?

 

I know folks love to ream on Wargaming but that's usually for things they mess up (Rubicon, specials, rigging, etc.) but not the events that don't matter.

Even more tax write offs 

Only reason cooperation donate money

Spoiler

 

 

Surprised you can operate Google search when you misused cooperation for corporation. One is what pubbie tomatoes in this game don't have/use and the other is a business/entity.

Another good point. Unless someone here is going through their taxes, this mission could very well be money donated on behalf of players on top of what they were already going to donate.It's entirely possible Wargaming has a set amount they were already donating, but the increased potential revenue of that much extra play allows them to donate more.

Again, I don't see the difference. And I stand behind my posts.

^..My thoughts exactly, Jack.

I have absolutely no problem with a simple "thank you for your service", but please...just don't ever say "happy veterans day!"....please, just don't.

I have a hard time with "Thank You for your service".  I don't know how to reply and it makes me feel uncomfortable.  The Brothers and Sisters who died in their service should be thanked, not me.  I'm just another Marine doing my job and would do it all over again if I had too.  No regrets but pride and great memories.

True, it is always awkward unless it comes from a fellow Vet.

 

The month of May is pretty significant, however. May 5 is Cinquo de Mayo, which celebrates a Mexican victory over the French. May 9 is Victory Day in the countries of the former Soviet Union, VE day (May 8 because of the time difference) in Europe and North America. Finally we have Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day. The most important, kiddies, is Mother's Day. So don't forget your mom. :girl: Buy her a gift tank.
