No, there is no hidden conspiracy to confuse you, we just had to wiggle a bunch of weird pieces to make these missions work and only serve them to players who have redeemed the correct bonus codes.


You're thinking of the first scavenger hunt. The first scavenger hunt required two wins, the x5 was for your second win. I wasn't able to get approval for the x5 on second win, so we got 30k for 2 battles in the top 2/3. Generally people don't like missions that have "win the battle" as a condition, so this was an alternative.

Why is it so confusing? Two reasons. I was given the following condition in order to get approval for this prizing: Players have to actually log in and play to get their rewards.

We always want to discourage botting, so the missions have to require at least some basic level of effort. Making the condition be a victory is generally frustrating because you have more influence over your own performance than the outcome of a Random Battle. So the condition for the mission is Placing in the top 10 XP earners on your team. You have to do it twice to get the XP.

 

Assuming you play better than 33% of your teammates, essentially all you need to do is log in and play two battles. You'll get 30k XP on the tank you used for the second battle.

The caveat is that you can't just YOLO in and die, you actually need to play the battle. That's what the "Top 10 XP Earners" requirement is there for.

 

If you die without doing any damage and spotting, wait for your tank to be ready for battle again then try again. That's it.

 

 

Thanks for the explanation Domo, personally i suck at making use of X5 XP's so being given 30K XP is WAY WAY better :)

I'm receiving multiple reports that it's functioning now but some weird stuff is going on with the tokens.If the 30K XP went on the wrong vehicle because your tokens got messed up for whatever reason, please submit a ticket and PM me your ticket ID.

After all this insanity I'm going to be double and triple checking everything involved personally to ensure it all works as intended next month. If there isn't a way to get the missions functioning properly we'll just pay the rewards out via a mass invoice based on the number of codes each player redeemed.

By the way, on a somewhat related note, I probably should have mentioned this sooner but if you have any questions as to which or how many February Codes you got credit for so far, Customer Support can definitely look that up for you and let you know. Not ideal, I know, but it is a potential solution just in case.

 

Oh good i was curious about this, so would they be able to tell me if i successfully redeemed the 1st day's code?

so the 999 completions are sort of a UI glitch, you can only complete the mission as many times as you redeemed codes. It was actually only supposed to be eligible for completion 4 times but a biproduct appears to be that players who redeemed multiple CC codes can complete it more than 4 times.

We could try fix it so that it can only be completed 4 times but... honestly I think with all the confusion and breakage, y'all deserve the extra boosters.

Yes, they will definitely be able to tell you that!

Same here entered all the 4 codes and all accepted but no missions have shown up in game relating to them.

Anyone else experienced this ?

 

only mission showing are the 75th anniversary ones, weekend mission, m4/tiger mission, the tournament ones  and tank mastery ones.

 

Any idea why they haven't shown ?

 

Thanks

When did you redeem the bonus codes? It was necessary to redeem them before the missions started in order to receive the missions. If you redeemed them before today, please submit a ticket and PM me your Ticket ID. I'll look into it.

Having the same issue. entered the codes and don't see anything else...when did the codes have to be redeemed? was there a cutoff date? When I redeemed the codes they were accepted so I assume they were still valid...

When you enter the codes, you will not see anything in your mission section.  These are those "secret" missions, and so you won't see anything until you play a battle, finish in the top 10 and you'll see it in your report along with the rewards for completion of that one mission.  You'll get 4, but none will be in the mission section.  On the 4th finish in top 10 exp you'll get 30k exp on that tank.

Nothing will happen until the end of the mission. New codes come out daily and there are a total of 28. YNMHXN9V was the 8th code, 20 more to go before you'll receive any bonus. The bonus you receive at the end is dependent on how many codes you entered during the 28 days.

But wait! There's a catch! You have to redeem the code within 48 hours. So, if you waited till Feb 7th to enter the codes, only the codes released on Feb 5th or later count. So, only two or three codes counted and you need four.

 

Here’s the catch: We’re only going to reveal the first Contributor you should tune into, and each code will only be active for 48 hours! It’s up to you to stay up to date and tune in to the correct Contributors every day at the right time and stick around for their code.

I can't believe how much time I've spent on this and how frustrating it has been.  Cudos to you Domo and WG for trying to create something fun and involves the CC but its has been a mess.  I've collected all 4 codes for the jan event

 

THEDUCKISBEST

MENZNY19

WOTSOCIALNY19 

BIGWHEELS 

and they have all been accepted.  It looks like I have gotten 3 of the 4 Mission 1 but the last will not activate, says I'm short a code?  All I want is the 30xp so I can finish off the Black Prince grind.  Also the website code BIWHEELS was almost impossible to find, got it from the forum, it should not be that difficult.  Hope this gets fixed so we can finish it.

for all those talking about the scavenger hunt missions going on right now, this weekends event  is the reward for the January hunt and has nothing to do with the current daily codes coming out. I'll bet it is to late to enter the codes for January and get the missions. this whole contest has been poorly advertised. go to the news page and their is an article about it that you need to read.

the codes that started on February 1st are for this months contest and the rewards will not be given out till the end of the month when they do another mission to get the prizes. the codes this month are only valid for 48 hours after they come out so if you are slow to go find them they wont be counted towards the 28 total codes to get the full prize suite.
