In what world do you live that thinking by pushing the start date to even later helps anyone have more time to complete something?

 

​well good thing is that you only need to win 2 games to claim the 30k and play a few more to get all the reserves

I think you should read his response one more time.

What he was saying, he would rather push the announced start day to a later day rather than catching lots of people of guard by getting the 30K EXP on random tank during the day today.

This makes more sense. But I would point out that dom used the term, "miss out", which is where I was thinking not having enough time.

UPDATE 2:

 

I have some bad news, some good news, and some more kind of bad news.

 

Bad news is that the issue is more complex than anticipated.

Good news is that the engineers are hard at work on a fix, and we've been given confirmation that the missions will be fixed and go live on Friday, February 8th, 06:00 PT | 08:00 CT | 09:00 ET

 

Sort of bad news is that it might not be possible to get the end time adjusted, so the Missions are likely to run until their original end date of 00:00 CT on Monday February 11th. We're going to do our best to push it back and extend it, but plan accordingly.

I know it's been a bumpy road, and I apologize for the additional delay; we made the decision to have them start tomorrow at 8AM since we are already past the projected start time of 8AM today and we don't want to catch anyone by surprise and make them miss out on the 30K XP Reward.

 

____

UPDATE 1: We've identified the issue with today's missions and we have contacted the Serverside Engineer team for a fix. 

The projected start time is 8:00AM CT, February 7th. We have requested that the event be extended to accommodate for the delay. 

Assuming the technical issue is more complex than anticipated, we're also looking into the possibility of simply serving your rewards via a data pull on our back end.

Tankers, 

I've got some new information for you regarding the January & February Scavenger Hunts.

 

Some of you may have noticed that January Scavenger Hunt codes seem not to be awarding anything - This is because all rewards for the Scavenger Hunt will go out via a series of hidden missions, which will be active starting February 6th, running until February 11th.

 

As a reminder, there are 4 Code sets: WoT Website/News Portal, Youtube (WoT Weekly), Social Media (Facebook, Twitter), and our Community Contributors' various Youtube/Twitch Channels and websites.


Each Code Set will award you with 1 token when redeemed, and the token will give you the following hidden mission when you log in between February 6th - 11th.

 

Mission 1: Play a battle and place in the top 10 XP Earners on your team.
Reward: 

3x EXP Booster 50% 1 Hour

3x Crew EXP Booster 100% 1 Hour

3x Credit Booster 50% 1 Hour

 

Can be completed up to 4 times, once per token.

If you collect all 4 tokens, you will also receive the following mission:

Mission 2: Play 2 battles, placing in the top 10 XP earners on your team.

Reward:

  • 30,000 XP, applied to the vehicle used to complete the second battle
  • 3 of each nation's food consumable


This missions are not repeatable on each tank. Once you complete mission 1 all 4 times, and mission 2 once, you're done with the missions. 
To clarify, Mission 2 will be triggered the second time you place in the top 10 XP earners that day. After you complete Mission 2, you should still be able to complete Mission 1 another two times, for a total of 4 completions!

 

(Assuming you place in the top 10 XP earners on your team in your first 4 battles for the day - Battle 1: Mission 1, Battle 2: Missions 1 and 2, Battle 3: Mission 1, Battle 4: Mission 1 - You will want to pick a specific vehicle to use when you try for the 30K XP because once it's applied, Customer Support has no way of moving this to a different vehicle.)

 

The February Scavenger Hunt is going to be a little bit different. February is going to be all about our Community Contributors! During every day in February, one of our Community Contributors will be dropping a new bonus code on their channel. Each of the codes will award you with the same Boosters as before, and you can collect up to 28 Bonus Codes during the Month, earning extra rewards based on the total number of Scavenger Hunt codes you redeem in February – the more codes you redeem, the more extra prizes you will earn.

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 right Contributors every day at the right time and stick around for their code.

So how do you get started? XanderP will be kicking off the February Scavenger Hunt Tomorrow,  February 1st, at 10AM CT.

He will be sharing his code on his Twitch Channel (Twitch.tv/XanderPTV), as well as his Facebook Community, World of Tanks International(https://www.facebook.com/groups/wotinternational/). If you can’t tune in at 10AM, Xander’s got you covered – the code (as well as information on who you need to watch next) will be visible somewhere on his Channel all day. You need to redeem the code before February 3rd at 00:00 CT.

The next code will go out on February 2nd, and will be active until February 4th at 00:00 CT. The remaining codes will go out during the rest of the month with according to the same release format and timing.

 

 

 

 

It's sort of a home-grown workaround using tokens and bonus codes rather than being built in as a full event, so it's a bit wonky.

I know the explanation is kind of confusing. Just think of it like this.

Redeem the "January" codes (BIGWHEELS is one of them, bug your favorite Community Contributor for their code, check our social media and Youtube for the other codes, they're all up) 

  • For every code you redeem, you'll get a Token that allows you to complete Mission 1 (once per token).
  • If you get 4 Tokens, after you Complete Mission 1 one time, you will get a Super-TokenThe Super-Token will unlock Mission 2.
  • At this point, you'll want to play the tank that should get the 30K XP.
  • Assuming you place in the Top 10 again, you will complete Mission 1 and Mission 2. You'll get the boosters for Mission 1 and the XP/Food for Mission 2.
  • Afterwards, you'll still be able to complete Mission 1 two more times.

 

I know it's kinda dumb that most of the codes are dropping at the end of the month. Without going into too many boring details, there was some back and forth about prizing and by the time everything got sorted, the January Plan was pretty much set in stone. The workaround is to have the missions start at the beginning of this month. It's honestly my fault for not getting the ball rolling on the project sooner. 

This month will be cool, though. You can get an absolutely ridiculous amount of boosters if you get all the codes in February. XanderP has the code up on his channels and he will be doing another code drop later this month as well so make sure you give him a follow!
 

 

Damn.

 

I totally realise this is none of your doing Domo, but why?

Why are there so many of these kinds of errors slipping by on the NA side?

Bit of a disappointment. 

Almost becoming predictable.

Its not hard, that's not the point.

The point is, in what world are you supposed to read the minds of WG rather than what they wrote?

Which is best to believe and when?

Their record is getting abysmal for this sort of careless, foolish, "no one bothered to proof read", type of BS.

The conditions totally make sense to me.  Wouldn't want bots getting that XP.

 

Thanks for your perseverance, and for creating the exposure for the community contributors.

Do you see how simple it was to explain the mission?  Like Domo did here:

 

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.

 

Compared to the original explanation below, which to many looked like you play one battle, then have to play 2 more battles in the second mission for a total of 3 battles to bet your 30k

 

 

Mission 1: Play a battle and place in the top 10 XP Earners on your team.
Reward: 

3x EXP Booster 50% 1 Hour

3x Crew EXP Booster 100% 1 Hour

3x Credit Booster 50% 1 Hour

 

Can be completed up to 4 times, once per token.

If you collect all 4 tokens, you will also receive the following mission:

Mission 2: Play 2 battles, placing in the top 10 XP earners on your team.

Reward:

  • 30,000 XP, applied to the vehicle used to complete the second battle
  • 3 of each nation's food consumable

 

The details for this mission could have been explained in a much simpler way.  "Finish 4 battles in the top 10 for experience.  On the 2nd battle you'll get 30k exp in that tank"

Is it:

 

"PLAY a battle and be in the top 10 xp wise"

 

or

 

"WIN a battle and be in the top 10 xp wise"

 

???

Alright folks, the fix should be live, saw some screenshots a few minutes ago of folks completing missions.

Testing on my end to verify if both missions are working!

I'm not getting the missions, but I put in all 4 codes and they were all accepted. wth?

OK, literally the very next battle I got two missions completed for the scavenger hunt. What a fiasco. I had already played about 5 battles this morning and in the top 10 XP at least half of them.

The win is not supposed to be a requirement. Please let me know if it is otherwise.

Seems like the missions are working now, but just to let you know, I put all the 4 codes and they were accepted (THEDUCKISBEST, BIGWHEELS, WOTSOCIALNY19 and CLAUSNY19) in the first 3 days the event came out, but I only got 2 tokens after the first battle. So something else is still broken.
