M4 Rev is a great tank 3 years ago, tier 5 hull does wonders vs Tier 10s.

 

It is about the gun, not the armor. By your logic the Leopard 1 is awful.

Spoiler: It isn't.

I actually think this is nifty, I can't believe so many are against it. Nothing pleases all but something always pleases some.

 

I'm a clanless craptastic noob shi ter so I appreciate this where I don't have to suck clan donkey to have a chance at a reward tank.

 

We need population spikes and that's a known fact many complain about.

 

Also people act as though the population on the server could get any worse, I think not, bot or not, not for bot. 

 

It's win win, people who play alone feel they have a chance to win a tank, 100 isn't very much server wide even for NA population. And maybe some will play a few extra matches now.

 

You clannies can't always have the only chance at reward tanks and bottom smacking yays, geez

 

I can't even believe some think 100 Rev given out is worth a whine, oh look some cheese

Bots aren't that prevalent (i hope) and this is a good thing WG is doing, offering 100 M4 Revs. At the very least it can help you get a free garage slot if you want to sell it right away.

 

They're very prevalent. They're ~46% w/r with a very low wn8 and very high battle counts.  They come on at night more so, so you don't see them during prime time as much.

You just described 70% of every team.

Even if people don't bot, bad players will have a better chance than good players because bad players die early and get into the next game. Good players will stay in battle longer and get in fewer, higher quality games.

100 lucky winners? 

 

So-o-o-o-o much better than all the recent contests with only 3-5 winners! 

 

Also glad this is about playing the game and not some arts and crafts project with nothing really to do with actually playing the game.  Let's hope they do vet the winners and weed out the bots though.  Shouldn't be that hard for a company that can (and does) keep track of every tree we knock over since we started playing the games - no matter when that start date was.

From the last tank give away, yes.

WG is giving away 100 tier VIII premiums and we all have a small chance to win if we play 100 battles in two weeks... bots or not, it sounds like a good deal.

Since they are giving gold for the current month long mission,I imagine they will.

100 Years of Tanks Super Giveaway!

 

When: July 15 - July 31

Why: The more battles you play, the more tickets you can earn, increasing the odds that you could win!

Good luck and have fun!

 

I hate raffles. Games of skill or involving skill I can understand, but "play your little butt off and get a prize if the luck fairy smiles on you?" Not my thing. 

How about...well...anything but a raffle!

-snip-

People aren't against having a giveaway, what they are against is how WG plans on determining how you get a raffle ticket. Having the sole requirement being battles essentially promotes boting 24/7 or tooling because you can do 2-3000 battles a week by just letting a program run. All the while real players who are actually playing can get maybe 400 if they play for a long period of time given no time constraints such as a job or family.

 

Sure, making the only req to be battles may let literally any player compete, but at the same time it gives cancerous players like bottlers or yoloers an easy way to win a tier 8 premium. 

 

An idea that sounds good but it's full of too many exploits.

Why not the "get a raffle ticket for every xxx dmg done"? It shouldn't be that hard. Of course WG shouldn't make the amount of dmg so high that all the low tier players can't get a ticket, but maybe a fair number, it's a raffle after all, it's just luck, you can have 100 tickets and not win, and maybe someone with just 2 get a prize.

Then it would favor better players over the worse, and WG wants to be as fair to all skill levels as possible

Wow...terrible way to increase botting. Now 90% of pubs will be players yolo botting several tanks each day to get 100 battles done asap. You are making pubs even worse than they already are, if that is even possible. Why not have a win or xp requirement so they actually have to try to win?

Soooo ill just get out my low tier seal clubbers of choice and Boost mah Win8!
#Bots!GottaFarmThemAll!
That will make me a winner right there as far as im concerned.

Oh and then there is the (very) off chance that RNG will grant me an M4 Ravioli and Cheese.
Nice if it happens but im not gonna tear my hair out in frustration trying to "grind" out many tickets just to win a tank for training crews on a line i dont even play.

That said... if you won a chance to have any one tank...  crapwould go crazy.
