Nice idea to give away a tank in a raffle.  M4a Rev. is no peach by any means.  I bought one a while ago and remain completely unimpressed.  It frequently gets spawned into tier X games and is easy meat for the other players.  Usually it parks just above the tier 8 light tanks.  It doesn't have sufficient accuracy to hang back far enough to remain unspotted.  Too tall to hide behind anything requiring you to peek out to shoot, all the while you're lit.  No hull down options, easily penned turret and hull.  I'll run it through a game because it makes coin, but it is never a game changer.  Additionally, it doesn't pen heavies very well which was supposed to be one of the selling points.  So, in summation, this tank is ok for a free tank but I would certainly never by another.  I've got too many premium tanks, mostly American, and they all make decent money, but the m4arev. is by far the least of these.  On a positive note, the Super P, the MK46 and the Mutz have been the best money makers and the Mutz probably the most enjoyable tanks to play.  Yes I'm only a barely average player, no I don't YOLO.... anymore...., and this comment is only being made because so many here seem to be down on WOT for giving it away.  Just trying to give everyone who hasn't played it a heads up, it isn't anything special.

Please tell us that you are actually going to vet the 100 winners to make sure they actually played and not just botted or suicided.

 

Best way to do that would be to adjust the conditions on entries.  

 

From this point forward, every contest should include the condition "be top 10 in xp on your team".   Problem solved

 

And for those of you saying that being in the top 10 xp every game is hard, well sorry... your participation trophy is in the trash

No thanks WG not taking the bait on this one, to many bots and besides 100 battles per ticket...Nah I'll just play and have fun instead of stress out about how many battles I have and worry about bots.  See you next time and maybe you will come up with something better.  Besides still bitter with WG WOWs for burning me 3 times over the Jutland flag, Texas Paint and the old bait and switch you pulled with the Arizona guns.  Oh and on top of that I still don't have my flag for that one either.  So as you can see WG you have a trust issue that your marketing Dept has given you with your players.  Same reason I am no longer buy in Gold/Dabloons, Premium time, or or ships or tanks from you.  You can't be trusted anymore.

If you already have the m4 Rev can an alternative be chosen, or will there be gold value given?

 

Ya, like can I please have the IS-5 or T-44-122. I already have 96 premium/reward tanks. Would like a chance to get some of the more rare ones. Coming from a 5 year veteran that has supported the game.

I am always for new exciting ways to play wot, but I think these type of "events" when all you have to do is enter battle, is just encouraging bot proliferation and bad game play. Let's just rush, die and pick another tank fast in order to get to 100 battles. Then these "players" will increase their chance to win the special tank.

100 yrs of tank giveaways...  wrong!!!  It's more like 4yrs of tank takeaways and nurfs!!!!.  Count the anniversaries!!

 

I can only assume a monkey picked the title out of a hat, and said let each game played = 1 year!!!  

 

1.  If each game is played to time, that's 15min x 100 = 1500.  1500min = 25 hrs.  25 hrs for 1 chance to win.  OMG no

2.  If each game is 5min, 5min x 100 = 500.  500 = 8.3 hrs.  8.3hrs is still too long for 1 chance.  

 

IMHO

Re-package the black pearl event for tanks would be epic.

100 years of tanks is based on when tanks were introduced to the battlefield, in the modern form.

Good old WG... has all the foresight of a tree stump when it comes to events and how they can be horribly abused, or just go wrong in epic fashion.

 

Wow, I guess I'm not a thug because I didn't think of those at all. I'm still not thinking of those *options.*

 

Either you are a cheater or you are not. WOT contests do not turn one into immoral, characterless, unethical thug. You have to already be predisposed to be a cheater to cheat in video games.

 

And don't hate cheaters, just pity them. I mean how sad and pathetic a person you must be, how useless and meaningless a life must you be leading, to get to the point where you have to CHEAT IN A VIDEO GAME.

 

Poor sad losers..........

 

Look at the bright side, if they can cheat in a video game, maybe it keeps them from getting an AR15 and going all BLM on some folks and shooting up parades and stuff.......
