Hey folks,
I submitted a ticket and they responded saying for me to wait till tomorrow, January 11 2019, to see the boxes credited to the account. And to contact them if the loot boxes don't show for my recruit and I. Thanks.

 

Edit: I only had my recruit use the code and did not go through the recruit system.

My feeling is that the recruit had to complete way more than just the little tutorial: they were talking about the whole set of missions which are quite a mouthful for a new player. Thus, a lot of tankers won't receive the boxes.

Also, why can't we get a clarification from a WG admin in this topic?

I too, am getting told to just wait for it.  We'll see.

Hello StainlessSteelRatt,

 

Thank you for contacting Wargaming Support.

 

I understand that you are looking for the rewards from the recruit a friend program that we had. Let's see what we can do.

 

As stated in the screenshot you provided, the condition of the code requires for the invitee should: 

 

  • Use the code during registration
  • Finish the Bootcamp missions
  • Lastly, play a match while in a platoon with you

 

Following the conditions above, Hence you and your friend will receive the boxes as what have mentioned. If so, kindly wait for the rewards as the system would need to work on it.

 

If you have other questions, please visit our FAQS

 

Have a nice day!

After years of carefully reading the fine print and conditions to get rebates and getting them, I looked closely at the email and the conditions were simple...give the code to the new guy....he creates an account....he completes boot camp...we play together in a platoon for at least one game...that's it.

No mention of missions or reference to any special invite mechanism...and we get 5 boxes each on the 10th.

They did not keep their end of the deal...yet. It is till the 10th for some hours.

I played in a platoon until we got a "Win", because you know how they like to throw that requirement in there ;)

Just checked with our team and the boxes will be paid out tomorrow. It is indeed 5 small boxes.

 

wthwhy would they call them holiday lootboxes if they're just the normal small boxes. It has no loot in it whatsoever

 

What a waste of time. Why would I invite my friend for 150 shards/5 small boxes. That is the worst referral code ever. I could've gave him a reddit referral code that actually has something that comes with it instead of 5 small boxes.

 

Reposted from another thread. Spread the disappointment around. We wasted our friends times with this just for 5 small boxes

5 Small Boxes is just 100% CRAP

 

They SPECIFICALLY call the small ones you earn in game: "SMALL BOXES"

 

The Invite code is for "five FREE holiday lootboxes"

No one would have invited a friend for Small Boxes

  AbsolutelyGot-dam right. The regular in-game boxes are full of mostly craptacular decorations that "may" eventually equal something akin to "loot".

The promotion advertises "free", as in this time it costs you no money, We all know that "Lootboxes" contain some form of lasting stuff...LOOT!

The LOOT at whatever theoretical value, is just pixel-craft that costs WG NOTHING!

I will await tomorrows big reveal and see if we have been scammed with a sorry bait & switch Holiday kick in the pants or find the offer genuine and honest.

The original thread was on Reddit (link below)

Just wow - just when I thought WG couldn't stoop any lower.

 

Once again WG showing we play this game in spite of their attitude towards the player base, not because of it

Interesting update 10 min ago

 


[–]NA Senior Community ManagerCabbageMechanic 1 point 10 minutes ago 
Hey Scorp, I appreciate the feedback, if not the sign off. I can see where players are finding the language of e-mail frustrating relative to the rewards and other invite codes available, and have shared it with the team running the promotion.

 

Perhaps they may change the rewards. Might be a chance that they give us the large lootboxes. The small boxes are so crapthey shouldn't even be called lootboxes. I would've never assumed it was the small boxes just from the language of the email

I understand that the promotion department is the one that needs an ethical reboot, but this is how I feel................

 

Good morning CabbageMechanic

I just received my 5 "Loot Boxes" for inviting one of my friends to join War Gaming and World of Tanks. 5 Small boxes? Really? I wanted to take a second and thank War Gaming for nothing. What I really wanted to say was where you could stick those 5 boxes, but lesson learned. Screw me once shame on you, screw me twice shame on me. You will never get the oppertunity to screw me over again. I cannot tell you enough how much of a sour taste this manipulative and downright unethical promontion has left on myself and many other gamers that fell for your deception. My wallet is now closed and rather than promoting your game I will be doing the opposite. Talk about a cheap low class act..................so sad what your company has disntigrated down to.

Bravo WG, just bravo. Making videos on how they make game "while thinking" about players and at the same time digging hole for themselves. I just don't get one thing, player base is kinda low and instead of working on actually bringing more people into the game, you always think of how can we screw with this little bunch we have now, just why? 

I came back to game to get my reward T-50-2 and to find that it was nerfed and now i'm sitting and writing this here and thinking, why am i still bothering with this game...they just keep on screwing with players. 

Good luck to you all and hope you enjoy your FREE loot boxes :trollface:

To WG,
My 15-year-old nephew is over for the holidays and I decide to try to get him interested in a game I’ve been playing for years. The game has an incentive right now to start your own account. So, set him up did everything as they say, got our 5 SMALL lootboxes today. As a new player he gets “holiday ops ornaments”, a fire extinguisher and a token amount of endgame credits. Remember this is a game about tanks destroying other tanks! Now I’m trying to explain to him why he’s getting tinsel and candles to decorate a tree in this tank game. 
Way to go WG. 
Looks like we will be finding another game to play together.
