Thanks to your help I was able to enter all the codes except not sure I got the first one in on time. I had planed to block off the time this weekend to collect the rewards and also contribute to the Tier VI madness. Now my wife tells me her parents are coming for the weekend. Now I like my in laws but I  don't want them to think all I do is sit around playing computer games. (I do) These two events just got a lot tougher for me. I just might have to get up and play after they all go to bed.  WOE IS ME!

 

Finished the scavenger hunt last night after everyone went to bed, helped along by 21 game run with a 57% WR and swinging 300 pts. over my recent WN8. Like many others the key prizes came the next game after the 10,18, 27, and 28th top 10. I also picked up some 3X exp's and consumables from other missions. I had two active tanks  that could use the 30K exp plus my KV 85 needed slightly over30K to Elite. I didn't want to leave any exp hanging on the KV 85 so I put the 10K there. I got carried to a win in my T29 getting the daily 2X but not top 10. I had the IS in the reserves with trained  female BIA  commander and driver  but waiting for a crew training sale for the two other crew. I decided to take the good gun crew out of the kv85 and take the IS out for a trial run. I got accused of being a bot but finished 6th EXP and a win so got 30810 Exp to help upgrade the modules. All in all it was a great event for me.

I know I input all the codes, and I know I put them in on time.  I have a ticket open for this (ofcourse they are saying that I probably put them in too late).  This company doesnt seem to want to treat their PAYING customers with any sort of respect.  F this, this game is ftp from now on for me, not one more cent to these morons unless they can start treating us with some more respect.  What does it cost them giving me a few more reserves and 40k exp for a tank?  I mean, dang, stupid stupid stupid.  bloody WG

I'm glad some of you had fun, The missions were a real grind for me, must have been the 3x weekend. In 3 hours of play on Friday night I had 2 victories! Most matches were almost perfect, 1 - 15,  as my team rushed out to die as quickly as possible. Although it was easy to finish in the top ten on my team it was not a lot of fun. (Thanks WoT for not requiring wins as part of the mission.)

I think I did 19 last night but they are not working this morning.  I don't think I missed any codes but might of missed 1 or 2 but I still should be able to complete more missions.  Anyone else with this problem?

I'll be the outlier, then.  Had 28 codes, had 28 work, no problems.  Other than 279 boosters. 

 

They could have been a little more generous on the premium consumables at the later stages, but oh well....free is free....

Weren't the mission supposed to be available through the 11th - well  they seem to be gone for me!

 

Redeem each code for a Token (up to four (4) Tokens) that allows access to Scavenger Hunt Missions available Feb. 6-11

means you ran out of codes that you input. You're SUPPOSED to get 1 missions per code you put in during the February event (30 possible due to the 2 free ones)...Some of us aren't getting credit for all the codes we put in though.

You are one of the few. I entered in every day and somehow they said I missed 4.

Right it seems to show I had only 22 - but I know I entered more than that confirmed - in fact I am sure I only missed 2.

Stopped at 27 for me.

 

This would have been better if there was a way in game or on the website to track progress and verify successfully entered codes. It would reduce the number of complaint tickets filed- thereby reducing workload of support techs (saving WG money). AND it would increase customer satisfaction in that we wouldn't have to go through the annoying process of entering a ticket and complaining about it on the forums. It would be a Win/Win.

Yes, I thought I had entered 27 and didn't get my bonus tokens, but support told me they show that I only entered 25, and the bonus codes got me to 27.  I'm not going to argue with them about it, because I'm sure there's a lot of players that entered like 10 codes and are sending in tickets claiming they entered them all just hoping support will credit them without checking.  So I'm glad Wargaming is keeping tabs.   

 

I think the first day they were a little more liberal with just sending extra tokens to people so they could be done with the ticket, because people were receiving extra tokens very quickly after submitting a ticket.  But I did get the 10k experience and all those boosters, so still nice happy weekend :-)

I agree, tracking them would be nice and could make it easier.  But part of me thinks it could backfire, because there might be a lot of players sending in tickets each and every day swearing that they entered the code, but it didn't register.  Or saying that it would not let them enter the code, and wanting compensation. So instead of sending one ticket, there could be some slackers forgetting multiple times a month and sending in a ticket every time.  LOL, I hope not, but you know some will be like that just by reading all the forum posts throughout February.

Finished my run about an hour ago. I ended up with 29 completions of the Scavenger Hunt mission and 1 of each of the others (Collect 5 CC Codes, Collect 11 CC Codes, Collect 18 CC Codes, Collect 27 CC Codes and Collect 28 CC Codes). Interestingly, I had to actually end up in the top 10 an additional time to get the Collect mission rewards (6th time for 5, 12th time for 11, 19th time for 18, etc.). This was per the tracking of the number of completions for the Scavenger Hunt mission as displayed on the Victory/Defeat screen.

 

Most importantly, (at least, if others have the same outcome that I had) the 10,000 EXP was actually awarded on the 28th time I placed in the top 10, not the 27th, and the 30,000 EXP was awarded on the 29th time I placed in the top 10, not the 28th (again, per the tracking of the number of completions for the Scavenger Hunt mission). I was able to get the EXP rewards on the vehicles I desired but, hopefully, the heads up will help others do the same.

 

Lastly, thank you once again to anyone and everyone who contributed to this thread; especially GAJohnnie. With your help I was able to get a grand total of 312 consumables, a garage slot, and 40,000 EXP! Congrats to everyone who persevered.

Mine worked exactly like this, sounds like I was one of the lucky ones with 27+2=29 codes that all worked.  A big shout out to GAJohnnie for putting this thread together, but Domo is the man.  Keep fighting the good fight, mate.

Welp, after everyone was having so many issues with entering these codes I made sure and kept track of what codes I entered and when. My tally came up with 26 (not including the 2 freebies), but I could not complete the last mission for the 30K xp, and after a ticket I'm told I only entered 25. I know I did 26, but I suppose next time I'll need to screenshot every one to prove it, sheesh, what a cluster.

I entered 28 codes and got the 28 of the reward packages, pretty easy...
