Hey, everyone! 

 

I've got some news that I'm pretty excited for, and I hope you are too! Starting today, October 25th, you can grab a package of sweet goodies through Twitch Prime.

 

If you're not familiar with Twitch Prime, it gives members a selection of free PC and console games every month, free in-game loot for the world’s largest games, and a premium experience on Twitch that includes a free channel subscription every 30 days, exclusive chat colors and emotes.

 

 

Check out our article about this Care Package, or open the spoilers below: Claim Care Package with Twitch Prime

 

Special Loot

 

10-Day Premium Tank Rental

 

Care Package Alpha Missions

 

Also, to celebrate this partnership, Quickybaby will be streaming from TwitchCon! Be sure to tune in every day from Oct. 26-28 October at 11:00 PT | 13:00 CT | 14:00 ET for some Quickybaby Streams! 

 

Thanks, everyone! Hope you enjoy your Prime Loot!

First button that comes up to link your WG account and twitch does not work. The page is worldoftanks.com/en/update_twitchprime/,
The button has "Already have Twitch Prime?" above it, and the button label is "2 Link Your Game Account."

If you go down through the steps listed below that, you do find a link that takes you to the correct page.

Is it just me, or is this an absolutely insane amount of free stuff, and a lot of it really good free stuff too?

Wow. Just wow.

I can't wait to accept this and use some of the stuff. That free crew member will be awesome to have, the rentals will be quite nice to try out, and some of the mission rewards look great.

 

Thank you for telling us Gnomon! And thank you to whoever worked all of this out with Twitch.

It actually worked.  Got a tank, got the missions, got the crew person, got some consumables and a coupon. I don't know if she is BIA or simply has enough for 3 skills.

 

Nice.

It is a rediculous amount of free stuff. I am legitimately pleasantly surprised by this from WG.  Fantastic gift, honestly.
Seems to be a little slow on the delivery - havent gotten mine yet and I claimed it 15-20 minutes ago, but thats no big deal.

Thanks for the heads up Gnomom, and great work WG - I don't say that very often.

Thanks for pointing that out! We noticed it when the article went live and our content folks are in the process of fixing it. Should be resolved before too much longer!

She has Sixth Sense (zero-perk), Jack of All Trades, and Repairs. You can drop and retrain Jack of All Trades and Repairs.

Just trying to wrap my barnacle brain around this. 

 

I have an Amazon Prime account. 

 

And that means I can have a Twitch Prime account (or upgrade my current Twitch account to Twitch Prime) for free (read: "no additional cost", no monthly $12.99 Twitch Prime subscription fee)? 

 

And I can collect all these "goodies" since my lungs still exchange gases with the atmosphere?

Correct! 

 

To learn how to link your Amazon account, check out Twitch's article here: How to Link Your Amazon Account

 

This guide explains a bit more about Twitch Prime and the features you get with it: Twitch Prime Guide

"If you are already an Amazon Prime member, you obtain Twitch Prime at no additional cost by connecting your Amazon account to your Twitch account."

 

After you link everything, you'll have access to the Loot Drop.

PSA - If it isn't dropping for you, you may want to try unlinking your twitch account from your WG account (from WG's page) and re-linking it.  That worked for me, immediately after re-linking and re logging into the game.

 

I had prime linked for months prior to this, so that method may or may not work for you.

You dont get rentals for tanks you own, but everyone get the 4 listed - somua, lowe, eagle and HT6.  I didnt get a lowe rental because i already own the lowe.  You get a credit payout if you already own the prem tank they give you free.

So I am trying to do the free Prime Twitch But it sends me to Amazon Prime. Does that mean I have to sign up for Amazon Prime for Twitch Prime?

Yes you have to have Amazon Prime to sign up for Twitch prime, as far as I know.

Oh no! We can’t enable Twitch Prime on your account.

It looks like there was an error activating Twitch Prime. 

Trying for at least 30 mins to do it and it doesn't. I have Prime Video, I linked what I had to but it doesn't activate Twitch Prime, "pay to get "free" stuff", 12$ for amazon prime and it will work so not so free stuff there!

This may be what is happening to you, from the sign up help page on Twitch Prime:
 

Amazon Prime is available in the US, Mexico, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Japan, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Singapore, United Kingdom and Australia. Twitch Prime is not available for Prime Video only plans in Amazon Prime countries.

Amazon only recently introduced Prime paid on a monthly basis as opposed to yearly so I could see myself possibly trying this.  And maybe buying things online for the free shipping.  Ack!  Successful marketing!

Sorry I'm a bit slow to respond, things are slightly crazy today!

This error can occur for a variety of reasons, but the most common is that (as GWyatt mentioned) you have attempted to sign up for Twitch Prime in a way not supported by your country. Do not use a VPN and follow these steps:

 

Amazon Prime in a Prime Video Country:

  • Visit Amazon in the marketplace (where you signed up and visited Prime Central) and end the membership to get a refund (if you are eligible), or turn off auto-renew on your Amazon Prime membership so you do not get charged for Prime (click herefor US). If you created a Prime free trial, email Amazon customer service to cancel the free trial
  • Visit twitchprime.com and make sure “Other parts of the world” shows in the country selector. If it does not, click the Change Country link and select Other parts of the world
  • Check the Purple Buy Box mentions Prime Video, and proceed to sign up or link accounts by clicking connect your Twitch account or enable Twitch Prime

 

Prime in an Amazon Prime Country:

  • Cancel your Prime Video by clicking end membership here
  • Visit twitchprime.com and make sure your Country is selected by its flag. If you don’t see your country’s flag, Twitch Prime might not yet be available there (you can review the information in this FAQ)
  • Check to see if the Purple Buy Box mentions Amazon Prime, and proceed to sign up or link accounts by clicking connect your Twitch account or enable Twitch Prime

 

Also, twitch just might be overloaded so try again a bit later.
