WG is not helping by using the domain TankRewards.com.

how are we supposed to know which domains are third party and which are not, when WG themselves don't stick to a single domain?

Trying to compare buying a bonus code from eBay to someone spamming a BS link in game chat is STUPID. The JT 88 codes on eBay were 100% legit and an absolute STEAL.

Apparently not all of those spams are bs. Someone i know in-game actually purchased gold from a site and within minutes someone logged on and credited him.

all, and i mean all third party offerings are scams. simple without a doubt. if your going to buy gold, support the game you play buy purchasing it from them. that way your safe, and know at least you have what was promised..... again, all third party sites are scams.....

The innocent aren't really innocent if they have been told, by WG that items bought from 3rd party sites or vendors is a no no, buy at your own risk, WG takes no risk with those..  The rules are clear, you agreed to them in the terms of acceptance...so no, vultures prey upon those that choose to be fed upon in this case...not all but the rules are pretty clear, no gray or exceptions

" Get Gold cheap! "

 

Now. Think about this for a second. There's only one way to amass gold in a single moment at any given time to the day. You buy it from WG. Now ask yourself this too. How would someone make money by buying it from WG and selling it to you cheaper than what they paid for it? If you can't figure that out you deserve the screw. Then again there's the whole stolen credit card thing that's gotten mighty popular. Didn't think of that until after I posted. Derp.

if someone put up a type 59 code on ebay...sold it for say $100

 

i'd bet WG would get a few hundred complaints about codes not working

 

 

hell i'd be tempted <.<

(no seriously. if i see a Type 59 for under $150 i'd grab it....)

 

why? it got nerfed. I don't like it very much anymore

Does purchasing basic connection to the game through a VPN count?  The standard connection through Telia is so horrific that the game is unplayable otherwise?

how bout you get rid of people who are making new accounts every hour and spamming people in game seems like it should be an easy fix, not all new players are gonna no that there just getting scammed.  I keep getting them from some one who has literately been sending messages for about two months now kinda crazy if you ask me.  here is the message i get every damn day now it seems like.

 

(f5ds15ser (10:17:40 PM) Welcome to WWW.AOAUE.COM Sell Cheap Credits and Cheap safe Experience ( 10000Experience = 2.99 USD / 2.56Eur / 2.3Gbp )----83)   

 

this is almost as irritating as some of the matches i get, I could submit a ticket but they just make a different name and continue spamming.

I doubt this a problem,  People do not want to purchase anthing from WG.  Why would they purchase it anywhere else.  I think they are refering to people selling their accounts. lmbo

I buy gold and premium time every three months because if I don't have premium time then I cannot play tanks over tier vi.

If you're going to purchase anything for the game - just purchase it from WOT - you will not have to worry about 3rd party site - now if only WOT would put a stop to using 3rd party modes and cheats - this would be the best game out there.

Hello tankers,

 

This is a friendly reminder to remember to be cautious of purchasing any codes or promises of in-game items from third-party websites, or any are that is not directly from Wargaming. 

Some examples include Facebook, eBay, Reddit, etc.

 

AHHH, this explains SOOO much. I've been purchasing a prem account from facebook for the past 5 years and I always wondered why I wasn't getting a prem account :angry:

How about you just do a better job stopping the scammers and cheaters. No accountability company. Quit putting the blame on us and nickel and diming for everything do work yourself. The reason you cant buy OP premiums in the tech tree = people getting free gold everyday from many different sites without purchasing. Just do your own [edited]work.

If a Type 59 code went up on E-Bay, I would be instantly dubious of it. But it wouldn't last more than a few seconds before someone jumped on it.:teethhappy:

On E-Bay, with PayPal, and a credit card like Discover, there is almost zero chance you will lose money. Even giving someone your game password to grind for gold/tanks is protected as long as you have it registered with your cellphone.  If it was a terrible scam where people were losing tons of money and their accounts every day, E-Bay would be flooded with complaints and shut it down right away. But they obviously aren't.
