You clearly show a lack of understanding of sales and marketing principles.

 

One of the primary reasons they do events like this is to get players to engage and continue playing the game. If they blow the execution, they blow the engagement, and they are more likely to disappoint players.

 

Some people would leave the game or become totally disinterested without challenges being presented to them. If the player feels they cannot be successful in the challenge because the host company got it wrong, they have more incentive to leave the game. That is not something any player should want, particularly with our small population.

 

You, unfortunately, keep focusing on the prizes and playing for the sake of playing rather than the motivation to participate in the game.

 

Blow the execution? A bit dramatic, eh? If your sense of entitlement is so easily disturbed, then maybe you should move on to another game.

Or better yet, start your own gaming company and "show EG how its done."

Seriously people, get over it. Its free stuff for minimal effort.

Moridon, you seem to be going a little hard on this entitlement argument. The fact of the matter is that Wargaming can be a poor communicator at some times. The users with whom you argue are hardly entitled - it is not the players demanding something from wargaming, it is wargaming offering the players something.

Why would they offer us something? For being active in the game and community. Naturally, the challenge, if they really intend any, should be in the finding of the codes and not in the reaping of the benefits. Poor coordination with those who are releasing the code, combined with lack of a simple message along the lines of " all benefits will be rewarded after march 1 (or whatever date it is), causes confusion which is helpful to nobody.

"If your sense of entitlement is so easily disturbed, then maybe you should move on to another game."

Interestingly enough, this statement shows the problem others have with this scavenger hunt. It is intended to reinvigorate the playerbase, not confuse them. If people did what you suggest in this statement, it would harm wargaming, as playerbase size has been an issue.

It worked for me a little while ago.  Make sure there are you leading or trailing spaces when you cut&paste it, as their user interface apparently does not strip them off for you.

Did that. Had to enter it 3 times before it accepted it.

That statement shows nothing. The fact is, some people spend more time crying on the forums about the timing, communication, and delivery of FREE STUFF than they spend playing. Those people should probably find a new game to play.

The only people "having problems" with the scavenger hunt are those too lazy to read the information out there. It is NOT complicated. Besides, most folks I have shared this info with do not even know or really care whether they get anything for free or not. They just enjoy playing. FREE STUFF is a bonus.

Thanks to the code relayers. Without your help I wouldn't have a single clue about any of them. Keep being awesome.

Worked for me. Need to make sure there is no space at the end if you are cut and pasting it. Windows sometimes inserts a space. Also need to make sure you are logged in

Yes, I know. I was doing all of those. It finally took it the third time I entered it.

Please dude. This game is 2-3 times more expensive than anything else I have played. When a tier 6 package costs more than most aaa titles, you have to keep your customers happy. Wargaming is so extraordinarily cheap, they ghosted the NA server on Christmas and New Years. Most of the coupons and events are laughably weak. The server population has halved since the merger. There is a pretty basic reason for that.  

 

A normal gaming company would kick it into high gear and try to stabilize the population, maybe keep 20k around for 3-4 years. Instead it is crickets chirping on NA.

Thank you everyone who has been taking their time to help out the community.  You are truly team players.  We appreciate you.  I already had all the codes, but it was really nice to see that you guys are taking your time to enter them.  If others are stingy on  saying it, I want to thank you!!
