Well, this should be incredibly lopsided.

I thought I would go British but the amount of players playing US tanks well I think is far more than the Brits - so be it Yanks it is.

Nope - but I was playing with the wording since it getting bit silly now with all the codes and pick a tank then brush your teeth turn around 5 times walk backwards chewing gum and then play the game once you have completed - I like to know what WG is thinking by making players continue to search for codes to play events or even broadcast the codes to a click page - really this makes no sense period.  All I ask can WG explain why?

 

I figured I was just goofing around with your name. NO hard feelings I hope. ;)

This is exactly the type of event where codes are useful

 

Limiting it to tier 8 .... I realize it's a money thing and while I did register for Britain I doubt I'll put much effort into it

pick a picture, click it...hit enter - boom done.  It's like some of you try to make things harder than they need to be.


Absolutely lol. It sucks to have to enter codes and it'd be desirable to have some in-game option, but this is as easy as it gets.

A while ago they didn't even use buttons, they gave you the code and you had to paste it in the redeem page.

Register now for the 4th of July weekend event. Pick a side, and if your team wins you get to enjoy a x2 XP Weekend. 

 

Yes there is a code to enter but to make it more fun click on one of the Tanks below to pick a side. 
The Sherman for Continental Army

The Cromwell B for the British Empire

(The Tank choices are just to pick a side and can't be played for the event)

 

 

Registration for the Event is from now (24Jun) until 1Jul. 

 

As soon as you Register you can start Playing!

Terrible event design. Might as well just give a x2 weekend for American tanks on July 12-15.

WG keeps getting stingier and stingier. Back when the Christmas event was on, I picked team Krampus because the losing side still got a good amount of interesting rewards, namely Swedish food and other little bonuses. The winner got things like big Christmas crates, but I wasn't really interested.

 

Then when Ice and Fire was on, the cooler camo was the Ice one (not cooler than the fire one they gave by mistake to players, but definitely much better looking that the one we were originally supposed to get) but it didn't make sense to pick ice because it was obvious that when you had a Game of Thrones event people were going to pick fire because the most popular characters are on that side. Here already there was no rewards for the participants who joined the losing team.

 

And now, you have made a British vs American event on the AMERICAN server. It'd be like doing a German vs Soviet in the CIS server with no incentive to pick German at all. At least this time you're not having the tally live to see before the teams are picked, but you don't need to be a genius to realize which side is going to win. You could have thrown in some cans of cola and pudding and tea to make things more interesting, and some other extra for the winning team, but as it is, it doesn't make sense to even bother with the event unless you play American tanks. Christmas gave us a crate and Ice and Fire gave us a universal style. This is just the x2 weekend.

LOL  RIP UK

 

UK has 5 tier 8 Premium tanks (and several are Special Rewards), and only 1 available in the tech tree

USA has a dozen, 3 in the tech tree and the Chrysler Rental from last week

If my tin foil hat was just a little tighter, I might think this event was a ploy by WOT to get me to take one of their rentals out for a spin.

 

Ya know... It might just work!

I am going to play American Premium Tank 8. The thing is I don't think that a X2 is enough compared to Fire and Ice, which I won.

Wow are you kidding me? What is the point of making this a competition? Americans who will almost invariably choose "Patriots" right around the Fourth of July because "America!" will skew this to the point of ridiculousness.

Even if nine out of ten Canadians who in a lot of cases actually have loyalist ancestry play Loyalist and lets be very liberal here only three out of four Americans play Patriot; there is absolutely no way that the Loyalist side will win.

Why? Because there are ten Americans for every one Canadian. Why are you even bothering with this silliness?

Yeah... i'm going to add my whine:

 

from fun, to dumb.

 

It should have been any British and any American. Final rewards should have included flags and camo. Some increase in XP for playing the British or American tank as you go to encourage playing/grinding up one of those trees.

 

I'll probably be at the beach during the XP weekend...

 

(edit: Thank God I'm not Canadian)

You realize this is NORTH American server, not merely "American".   You have a commonwealth state to the north.....you know CANADA.....and who's their head of state?  Yeah...

 

WG tries to have a little something extra and some people always find something to whine about.  Why do they even bother I wonder.

Clearly, the Fury helped us win the Revolutionary War, so I chose America!

 

On a more serious note, I just played my Chrysler K GF and must have damaged 9 tanks because, I have the Premium Mission completed (2 tokens) and I'm 2 out of 7 for the next one.  My questions are:

 

1) Are there unlimited tokens?

2) Do I need to play a certain number of games? or get a certain number of tokens?

3) What are the tokens good for?  Just adding to the group's total?

 

As I see it now, I've done my part.  Got the Ace in my Chrysler so I don't need to play it for another month.  Please let me know if I have to do more.


Thank you for your time.

4th of July.  NA server.  If USA doesn't win this, then I don't want the prize.

 

Picking USA now and not waiting like a wanker.

Im rolling with the UK hence my screen name.  This event is 100% USA though.  The USA tier 8 tanks are just better and more to choose from.

It is pretty obvious here though.  I'm guessing the American players outnumber the Canadian players by quite a bit.  And the holiday is an American holiday.  I'm guessing my Canadian brothers will pick USA and ignore that Trump is our President for a moment.

Yeah, I just realized that.  Was hoping for a cool 4th of July skin or something.  They give out a couple great skins for the fire and ice one, and then for the 4th of July event no skin.  Makes me wonder if Trump disobeyed Putin or got one of his orders wrong.
