I tried the Snow Tiger thing with my 131, bottom tier 80% of the time. Lots O fun.

 

My problem has been getting top damage in battle after battle, even in tier 8 battles, and still losing.  My god my 131 teams have been putzes.

Hey Cabbage, two days in a row now the daily mission has failed to load in garage.  Want to let you know as it may be happening to others as well.

*shakes fist angrily at the Julian Calendar*

It's a cultural thing, Orthodox Christmas is January 7th and Old New Year is the January 14th - so for the home office Advent kicks off later and ends in the new year.  No response yet to my proposal to change the whole thing to "CabbageMechanic's Post-Festivus 2017-2018 Winter Solstice Celebration and Pan-Holiday Extravaganza"

 

Cabbage,

 

This is great info.  It might seem like a small or trivial thing but we NA yokels out here in the WoT hinterlands are so often left scratching our heads when WG makes decisions.  Sometimes it’s a perfectly understandable thing like this that with just small effort at communication could be easily explained.

 

Cheers,

 

Guido

How about 4000 bonds for the low low price of 3.99? That way I can actually get the reward tank I qualify for.

"when it pops up the first time"

LOL, yeah, but it DOESN'T POP UP the first time you log in for the day.   Sometimes, not for hours of play, if ever.   Even if it does pop up, people have been trained to think of that as a redundant news spam.  So, if they have already read the news via website or the launcher, they will ignore the popup and just close it.

"make sure to accept"
Why, is it important, other than for the 30k silver.....

I mean, this website suggests its important, why is something important a secret that many many players will miss

 

"Jumpstart your progress on Holiday Ops 2018 with the Advent Calendar: "
https://thearmoredpa...als-on-the-way/

 

If the advent calendar doesn't pop up for you when you first login, then you can just click on the store tab (next to the garage tab), and look on that window for where it says "go to advent calendar"; click on that button and then once it takes you to that window, select to start the daily mission.

bottom tier when the goal is exp earnings makes it easier. since you get more exp for shooting higher tier tanks. 

just load premium ammo and get ~5 hits and you should be top 3. (dont snipe, get brawling range)

Thanks Not_Connery, I'll check the Store for the advent calendar and daily mission.

 

And thanks to Hurk.  I read similar advice on the forums a few days ago about using the lower tier for more xp, and it works well, if you have a good game.

Does anyone else find announcing announcements just tend to over hype what is merely procrastination and laziness? :hiding:

I believe you are referring to the Advent Calendar, not the Holiday Ops.  Advent Calendar is a series of sales, Holiday Ops is the in-game event featuring a customizable holiday garage.  We are aware of some issues with the Advent Calendar and have filed reports to the Dev team - in the meantime make sure to accept your Daily Mission on the Advent Calendar window when it pops up the first time you log in for the day.

 

It didn't pop up for me this morning, and therefore I didn't get it.  So... what?  I just don't get it?

You can bring it up manually by clicking 'Store' -> 'Specials' -> click on 'Advent Calendar'.

Will you give us a reward that requires us to grind an in game currency in order to collect it? You know, like make us complete some missions and then grind bonds, maybe like 4000 bonds, in order to collect our prize.

 

yeah WG i dont want to waste my X mas playing this game and not having enough bonds for my CW tank >:(

Yup, I know, I was just pointing out how flawed a system it is.   Many if not not most players, will never even know it exists.

The full gamut of missions and bonuses won't be realized, probably until towards the end of the event.  It might not meet your ideal set of expectations, but I'm finding the Advent bonuses to be quite satisfying and I am really looking forward to unwrapping the Holiday Ops packages, starting on the 15th.

 

Sure, I would have loved to have been offered the opportunity to buy 1 year of premium at 50% off.  In all honesty, that happened ONCE over six years.  Given the backlash they've received, I understand why WG doesn't want to (regularly) give us nice stuff.  It sets a precedent and once the precedent is set, folks establish that as the minimum level required for them to be happy / satisfied.

Looking forward to the big Christmas event! I'm really looking forward to the new T-29 (it's going to take some getting used to that there's 2 tanks with that designation now), and all the hilarious mayhem that'll bring down to the low tiers. It's always fun to see noob players and purple players fighting on nearly equal terms- I for one love it!

 

As an aside, kudos to whoever is doing the graphics work for WOT these days. All the banners, videos, and design work is marvelously done for something where simple text would have probably done just as well. The extra effort is noted, and appreciated! Thanks again sir!

when posting it before the Event started like the others would have prepped the player base for it ahead of time

for me I missed the first 2 days of the event because we were not aware of the event and how to access them when it started

Dude you are really confused. They are two SEPARATE events. One has nothing to do with the other.

The tree decorating from last year is coming back SOON

 

​This might sound a little weird but I enjoyed the tree decorating last year and they percentage off the Swedish tanks was pretty cool

If they do the tree decorating again, I hope they give the discounts to the upcoming "Polish" tech tree like they did with the Swedish line last year.  That would be cool but I hope they make an easier formula list lol
