OK first and foremost folks. 

 

CLAIM your Holiday Ops rewards by February 6th.  Or at least claim your crew and choose your tank discounts.

 

TL/DR;  The old incorrect? mid-March date is back up on the Holiday Ops guide.  But folks don't trust it - see above.

 


 

Because a few days ago (I'll find the thread and link it in a new post) they changed the Holiday Ops guide "note" to say claim your rewards by Feb. 6th.  Previously it stated mid-March with more info to follow on the date to follow later.  I personally looked at the Ops guide and it was changed - at least at that time. 

 

Then the day after the thread, WG put that mention of Feb 6th on the main site in a new announcement/article, but it's already been removed.  They did state they would make an in game/client notification closer to the Feb. 6th date though.  But still no forum announcement either.

 

I just checked the Holiday Ops guide to see if it's clear on the camo reward staying after the missions are over, after the 6th or if its permanent.  One would think (and hope) they're permanent.  But who the hell knows with this outfit.  Btw didn't find anything definitive.

 

While there I checked the "Important Note" to see if it mentioned it and the friggin' mid-March date is back up there. 

 

Link (the "note" is about 1/3 down the page), https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/holiday-ops-guide/

 

Again folks claim your stuff by FEBRUARY 6th.

I think I'm gonna go fashion a hat out of Reynolds Wrap and festoon it with Christmas garland. :P

Incompetence is the downtiering of the 263 while replacing it with a crap tier 10 despite the fact that none of the playerbase wants this.

 

This Holiday Ops  date situation I consider an honest mistake on the dates.

Let me preface this by saying that I have no idea if/when the next update is scheduled. This is purely conjecture based on the fact that I lost the "gifted" female crew member since I hadn't claimed her when the last update hit.(I had planned on using her to fill the empty Badger crew slot since the 183 has 1 less crew member.)

But, is it possible that the reason for the change in "use-or-lose" date is that they may be planning on releasing the next update on Feb. 7?

I think I can sum up my thoughts on WG and WGNA's handling of this in two statements.

Never assign to malice that which can easily be ascribed to incompetence without evidence.

At some point, sufficient incompetence becomes indistinguishable from malice to those on the receiving end of it.

FYI:

 

The date was changed so that Holiday stuff is done before 9.22 drops.

That doesn't make it OK.  You don't change horses in the middle of a stream. :trollface:
