Greetings Tankers!

 

I'm sure most of you remember the Advent Calendar, well.  The Festival Fair is just like that with minor differences!  Each day there will be a new tank available for 24 hours for in client Gold.  Also, there will be corresponding offers in the Premium Shop.

 

For a quick overview of the event, check out the video below:

 

 

For the full list of glorious details, follow the link below.

GLHF!

Will it only be tanks on sale? Will we see things like crews or crewbooks offered? Will it only be gold for the entirety of the event, no credits like the Black Market?

Good thing I was holding onto the gold I got last Xmess for this years Advent , but if the Fair has the tank I want then It's a early Xmess present for considering I have already paid for it. :)

So does WGNA plan on doing something about the cheaters in the Steel hunt mode like the Asia server or are ya'll just going to not care just like the T-22 debacle ?

Seems like a great event. I'll have to miss out on it, because I have no gold.

No offense but you griping about codes in every thread is almost as annoying as the codes themselves...

I believe they did mention in the video, or the website post that there will be more than just tanks offered. They said nothing at all about credits though. They only mention that in the game client the sales will be for gold, but on the website they will be for real money.

 

However they did state clearly that if you buy a tank that you already have then you get the value back in gold along with whatever bonuses it came with like the 5X missions, crew etc. Like the Advent event they simply may discount the gold price for a BIA crew. I think it was 500 gold for a BIA crew from a dupe tank i think. It was a fantastic deal for crews during Christmas.

I was hoping someone on staff could clarify the "More than just tanks" part, like do they mean it in the sense that tanks will come with crews, slots, and x5 missions, or as in other things will be on sale. I agree from the info that credit sales are out, but still wanted confirmation. I'll bug them during today's stream to find out.

just curious about the pending purchase button you have in game, does this mean you can hold one of that tanks for more then just the day of so you might be able to buy it later on in the event?

Could you please add the option to buy an advent calendar in the advent calendar next time?  I want to wade into this cultural phenomina 100 percent so i can possibly work this into my private life or job.  Any wot apparel you could add that just said "Advent Calendar" on it and has the wot insignia on it would be a boon, too.  

 

Advent Calendar. For everything. You've converted me.

I do not see a gold price for the deal. Do you see the price after you click on the "Purchase using gold" button. Or does that button automatically purchase the tank??

As much as I .... "dislike" these codes I agree that there's no need to harass the WGNA staff with this and other stuff that is off topic for the threads.

Same problem here. Have restarted client several times (in both safe mode and regular), ran a repair/integrity check, disabled Malwarebytes, nothing has worked. Only thing I have left to try is completely reinstalling the client, which I'm not about to do just yet.

EDIT: Just to add, I've gotten the pop-up that you're supposed to get when you log in for the first time each day during the fair twice today, and both times it also went straight to the home page. Clicking the fair offer from there just shows the cash buying options, no choice for gold.

EDIT 2: I fixed it. I did these two things, but didn't check between steps:

A) Downloaded latest version of Aslain's mod pack from his website (latest version isn't on the mods portal yet) and ticked the box to clear the game's cache on the last step before installation.

B) Went to both the home page and premium shop in Brave Browser (only chromium client on my PC, and set as default browser) and disabled shields for both the WoT homepage and the premium shop.

My guess is that clearing the cache fixed it, but if you do have Brave installed, turn the shields off for those sites as well just to check. I'm not sure where the cache data is stored normally, but even if you don't use mods, you can just download aslain's and not install anything to get it to clear the Python logs and the cache.

Thanks! Let me give it a try

 

Clearing the cache worked. Thank you!

I see AMX 13 57 is today's offer. Any chance we'll be able to exchange the GF version for the plain vanilla version?

Is there a list of the tanks that will be available? Also, how does the save tank feature work? Like once the day goes by you can save it to purchase until the end of the event?

Has anyone seen any leaks for upcoming tanks or anything? I've heard that they might add something new and premium

IF you  already own the tank and buy the offer, you get refund for the tank and.

 

for 300g, you get:

- 1 x garage slot

- 15 x 5X mission

but where is the 100% crew?
