Tankers,

I know you've all been patiently waiting for information on how to receive your prizes from the February Scavenger Hunt. The other threads are sort of turning into massive unwieldy behemoths, so starting a new thread to consolidate all the information on exactly how these missions will work. I've explained everything below to the best of my ability, and I've also whipped up a couple of snazzy infographics for ya.
 

FULL, LONG-WINDED INFOGRAPHIC WITH ALL THE DETAILS

 

SHORT INFOGRAPHIC WITH THE ESSENTIALS

 

First things first, please note that everyone who participated in this month's Scavenger Hunt will be getting credit for 2 extra codes via a mass invoice on our backend.So if you got 26 codes, you will get credit for 28, and if you got 28 codes, you will get credit for 30.

 

MISSIONS START: March 8th, 2019 03:20 PST | 05:20 CST | 06:20 EST
MISSIONS END:
 March 11th, 201903:20 PST | 05:20 CST | 06:20 EST

 

That said, let's talk about how these will function:

All month, you've been gathering bonus codes. These bonus code have been crediting Code Tokens to your account. Including the 2 freebies, you can theoretically have up to 30 Code Tokens.

If you have at least 1 Code Token when you log in, (Meaning, if you have redeemed any of this month's codes) your Scavenger Hunt Missions will activate. They should be visible in your Missions UI.

 

You have 2 sets of missions (Mission 1, and Missions 2-6 which are activated by Mission 1), and the conditions for completion require you to place in the top 10 Experience Earners on your team.

Every time you place in the top 10 XP earners on your team, you will complete the following mission: Personal Battle Mission: Scavenger Hunt

Every time you Complete Personal Battle Mission: Scavenger Hunt,  one of your CODE TOKENS will be converted into a FOLDER TOKEN

 

MISSION 1:
 

EXPAND


FOLDER TOKENS will unlock the following missions, which will give you your tiered rewards.


Once you collect 5 FOLDER TOKENS, you will unlock the following mission:

 

MISSION 2:

EXPAND

Because 5 FOLDER TOKENS are required to UNLOCK the mission, you will get your small consumables when you get your 6th FOLDER TOKEN

When you collect 11 FOLDER TOKENS, you will unlock the following mission:


MISSION 3:

EXPAND
 

Because 11 FOLDER TOKENS are required to UNLOCK the mission, you will get Large Consumables when you get your 12th FOLDER TOKEN

When you collect 18 FOLDER TOKENS, you will unlock the following mission:

 

MISSION 4: 

EXPAND 


Because 18 FOLDER TOKENS are required to UNLOCK the mission, you will get your Garage Slot when you get your 19th FOLDER TOKEN

When you collect 27 FOLDER TOKENS, you will unlock the following mission:

 

MISSION 5:

EXPAND


The 10,000 Vehicle XP will go to the tank used to complete the mission. Make sure you don't have 'accelerate crew training' enabled or it will go to your crew!

 

Because 27 FOLDER TOKENS are required to UNLOCK the mission, you will get your 10K EXP when you get your 28th FOLDER TOKEN

When you collect 28 FOLDER TOKENS, you will unlock the following mission:

 

MISSION 6:

EXPAND


Play one more battle + place in the top 10 XP earners to earn your final tiered reward of 30K EXP (going to the tank used to complete the battle) + food consumables.

Keep in mind, since everyone is getting 2 extra CODE TOKENS you can theoretically complete Mission 1 a total of 30 times if you got 28 codes this month.

 

Golly gee whiz, Domo! That's a wall of text! Why is this so damn confusing!?

Long story short, to make the Monetization guys happy, we need y'all to actually log in and play to get your prizes.

We picked top 10 XP as a requirement because it's fairly easy to complete, and doesn't require you to depend on your team and win the battle. But you can't just AFK and get the prizes, you actually need to play.


It seems pretty complex, but you just need to remember that each mission will unlock once you get the right number of Folder tokens.

Thanks for organizing this! There's a little hoop-jumping, but this seems fairly straight-forward. Play games until the mission with the XP reward has been unlocked, then play the tank you want the XP on, then go back to your other tank(s).

Does seem too crazy to figure out. Play some battles for however many tokens you got, win stuff.

wonderful summary -- greatly appreciate your effort to keep us informed and "fix" the little glitches that have occurred along the way...

 

One question: On March 8th, when things kick off, will there be any indication in our accounts of the actual number of "codes"  we've accumulated?  (I have NOT kept track and was unable to enter all of them while travelling overseas... so would be nice to know)

 

Thank you again!

Hmm, after dutifully entering the codes for 27 days, I'm actually going to be out of town for the mission weekend. That's unfortunate. Ah, well, thanks for the update, Domo! Events like this are appreciated anyway!

That's about as clear as Mississippi in the spring ...... but I suppose this is one of those things that becomes obvious once you start the event and is difficult to describe beforehand

 

Reading it again I see that there's no win requirement and that's a huge relief because the teams are often "variable", especially during the weekends it seems

 

Also.... this is a massive freebie giveaway, for those of us who have been collecting these codes diligently <waves> we're in a for a massive amount of stuff.

All these rules are like going to a BBQ and being served salad.

So...if you collected 20 codes + the 2 codes credited for late delivery +the 2 bonus codes for participation you can get up to 24 folders, + 4 (1 per unlocked mission)= 28, you can get the "final" large xp mission? A good deal for those who missed somewhat over a full week.

I'm so confused. 

 

Does it matter that I entered in all 28 codes, because from what I'm getting, all you need to do is do the missions 28 times

 

I mean, thanks for the graphic, but it makes me even more confused. Are these tokens represented by the codes we entered, or do we have to grind 28 battles to get to the top prize? It's not impossible, but really annoying if the latter is the case.

Domo;

I realize I'm risking sounding ungrateful, and believe me, I AM VERY grateful for the XP.  My only question is this:  The original video by 4tankersanddog shows 50,000 XP for 28 tokens, and your graphics show 30,000 XP for 28 tokens.  Which is it?  I'm asking because I'm planning on using the XP to unlock a new tank, and if it's only 30,000 XP, I might have to change which tank I'm planning to unlock.  Again, not complaining; I just would rather know now instead of screwing this up.

 

Thanks!

This is not happening to me this time (thankfully) since my Spring vacation starts the following week.  BUT, for the record, I think limiting the payouts to a short window of time after a whole month of dutifully following the rules is a pretty terrible thing to do to people at the end of the long slog.  I would be way more pissed off than Peak_Bagger if this had happened to me.  It's entirely unnecessary to screw people with such a short window to collect rewards.

First: Thanks for the details.

Second: Your post mentions 3x Crew EXP Booster 100% 2 Hours, while the pic says 1 hour... I'm guessing all boosters will be 1h.

 

 

Third... It's weird/annoying that after having collected all of these codes we need to jump through more hoops to get the boosters. The initial announcement kind of said "get the codes from CC, win some boosters". I understand the idea behind it for the higher tier rewards though.

 

But the part that bugs me the most is the restricted timeframe combined with 1 game per token. You're asking for 28~30 games (more than that in reality for the average players) within a specific 3 day window to get the prizes.

Opening up the timeframe to 1 week or 10 day (so that 2 weekends are covered) would be a minimum in my opinion. Or even better, give us the whole month.

sigh....all matches need to be done in those 3 days...i really would have liked the exp,but work and sleep and commitments for one of those entire days... for me all those matches need to be done in 4 hours total available game time...double sigh.

 

on the bright side...no win requirement. congrats to you people who will get the exp....im just hoarding consumables it seems and getting some personal reserves.

 

i really wish the mission window was 5 days.then i would have the exp. sure i might luck out and get 28 top ten matches in total of 4 hours,thats 7 per hour.

 

edit: or over 2 weekends.
