So has anyone confirmed if the code is only usable once? I'm trying to get my other friend ( I have already recruited one person) to play but it says "code has already been used". I'm pretty sure its just usable by one person but it doesn't hurt to ask since the email does say "Comrades".

Code is specific to you and it can only be used once (with one person)

I will guess that no one will get these boxes. You needed to use it through the old recruit invite but they didn’t tell you this. So everyone just had the new recruit use it as their invite code as the recruit signed up. Most didn’t know about sending the recruit an emailed invite through the recruit system. Then having the recruit use that email to sign up and enter the invite code.

Wow.  A lot of new players are going to be REALLY disappointed if this turns out to be correct.

If that's the case, lots of players are going to be pissed off. Lets be hopeful and wait till the end of the day, you never know.

Whats the purpose of a unique invite code without directions to an old invite process when the codes all worked during new account creations? I would have expected WG to be aware of that and the codes not work when creating the account. Hopefully you are incorrect and its just a simple delay as I know my friend will be very disappointed if this is the case.

 Merry Tankmas!


'Tis the season to launch volleys! Give the gift of multiplayer military mayhem this holiday season to your closest comrades, and you'll both receive five FREE holiday lootboxes. Make sure your new Commander uses the invite code while creating their account, then completes the bootcamp missions. Then play at least one battle in a platoon with your new recruit, and you'll both receive these fine gifts!

This offer expires on January 8th. Holiday boxes will be added to your account on January 10th.

Now get out there and tear apart the battlefield with some good old-fashioned teamwork. Happy holidays and happy tanking, Commanders!

Literally no reason to believe this is the case. Here is the email they sent:

I have three recruits under the expiring system and got the tank for recruiting. There is a very specific way to invite them so they are your recruit. I had to walk each person through it so it didn’t get messed up. I had a fourth person sign up wrong and I did not get credit for them.
It’s possible that’s how WG wanted you to sign people up. That is weird that they announced the recruit system was being ended then want you to use it for this.
The weirdness of it makes me think that’s what they wanted.
No Boxes For You!

With trepidation, I got my son to start an account with the code provided in that same email sent to me. I warned him about the games issues and shortcomings, but as he had not played before, there was not much to lose.

He used the code, completed the training (which I must say was much batter than anything I had when I signed up) and here we are...awaiting a remedy for another WG cluster-fudge.

Can we not really not believe anything they say? Are they not getting paid enough to give a crap about their work?

If they cannot honor the offer as presented, a lot more than the new recruits are shortly to go AWOL.

Fuggit - sent in a ticket on the matter.

 

I'll post my results here, if any, once I've heard back from Wargaming.

There is a very good chance WG just hasn't handed them out yet.

 

If anyone has received the Boxes, please let us know.

Also let us know if you just used the Invite Code, or if you went through the Recruit New Player system, which is scheduled to end in like 5 days.
