Attention Tankers!

 

I'm sure most of you are aware of Tank Rewards coming back but for the few who haven't here is a quick rundown of what it is.  

 

  • Each month, new events are available featuring a slew of unique challenges. Completing each challenge earns you Tank Rewards tokens, which unlock new reward tiers based on your score. 
  • For additional information about Tank Rewards use these links:

 

Tank Rewards: Back to School

EVENT BEGINS: Monday, September 9, 04:20 PT | 06:20 CT | 07:20 ET
EVENT ENDS: Tuesday, October 1, 04:00 PT | 06:00 CT | 07:00 ET

 

Read the Syllabus, Earn Tokens, and Redeem Free Stuff

After collecting Tank Rewards tokens, you can select one of several rewards within each tier. Make it all the way to the top tier and you'll get one of these three Premium vehicles:

  • Tier V - Pz.Kpfw. T 25
  • Tier V - Matilda IV
  • Tier V - Excelsior

Got one of these already? We're also offering seven (7) days of WoT Premium Account!

 

Be advised: There will be no Gold or Credit compensation if you already own these vehicles.

 

For further details on mission objectives and reward information, visit our Tank Rewards landing page. Study up!

 

GLHF!

Way to tank (pun intended cause the rest is gonna be me on a rail) a good event, ESPECIALLY for new players, and completely 6th letter it up into a T9 and 10 grindy event WG.

 

Btw Jambi the reward tanks you list are from last session of Tank Rewards.   This session's are some tier fives or 7 days of prem time.

 

But I'm guessing you're going off the screwed up Tank Rewards page which keeping with NA's consistency started late per SOP.

 

Run a mission and your Tank Rewards page should reset.  Btw that information was garnered through forum osmosis as there's no official word that they actually fixed it. 

 

And since the page is still broken (unless you reset it per the above) there's no way to know how the player can fix it.

Also, TR page is down.

Am I crazy, or are the rewards for this TR supposed to be the Pz T25, the Excelsior, 7 days of prem and the Matilda BP? I saw the page earlier today and that's what it said, but now TR is down and the news posts all say last months' rewards.

It is the fives folks unless they change it while it's down.

 

Also running a mission triggered the PR page to refresh.

 

Maybe since it's down they're actually fixing it.

 

It'd be real nice if they roundfiled the whole set of mission parameters and made it less grindy ( those daily block missions by themselves :D:facepalm: ) AND open to more of the newer players.

 

Which was the way it started and they made it even more so the last session.

Have to worry when WG can't even get the announcement right.  Let's all be glad these guys aren't running a Nuclear Power Plant.  So many problems today.

Does RU have the same issues with their "Back to Gulag" event?

Yeah, looks like the TR page was all screwed up.  I saw the tier V reward tanks before the page went down.  If parameters don't change, you'll need a variety of tier IX and X tanks to get the reward tank.  From what's in my garage, the most I can get is the first level reward :sceptic:.   So looking forward to one free garage stall this time around.

I think one of the choices was at least.

 

Personally I'm fine with the reward changes in and of themselves.  But for that daily grind I'll bow out like I did for Steel Hunt and be done with it.

 

What my issue with it is they took an event with good potential for newer players and turned it into a grindy event excluding most new players because they're requiring T9 & 10s.   And for rewards that most of the "older" players won't use much that newer players would get more use out of tbh.

 

The earlier sessions and especially the last was a really good event for newer players.

I agree - this will be a long grind event, and one has to hv tier 9/10s to do well -

I've liked the TR events in the past, but this one may be too grindy, and seems to favor lights and heavies over TDs/Mediums?

Really, lights get 15 tokens for just spotting 2, while TDs hv to do hit points dmg and survive to get 10? not fair dude

(not to mention SPGs are excluded from getting tokens, but I suppose that's to direct players away from them to make a lot of people happy...)

So let's do some quick math.

 

With the freebie and the tier 5-8 challenges (I'm sure most have or can get a tank for this) and you participate EVERY DAY you get: 1320 points

If you get the points for the tier 9-10 missions: 2200 points

In total: 3520 points

The max tier is 3000 points. that means to get the max prize you need to earn ~85% of the total points on the table. You can miss a total of THREE DAYS.

 

I'm a huge fan of Tank Rewards, but this is ridiculously difficult to do this month. All of the other months were reasonably obtainable, but this is an almost complete lockout. If you want to do this route of making it super difficult, add more tiers to the event to get more prizes for those who plan at maxing below the top prize requirement.

 

Personally, unlike the other months, this month I'm not putting in the effort to play the variety to get the top prize. I'll earn what I earn and call it a day at the end of the month. At least with the previous iterations it felt worthwhile to play the different tiers and there were enough points on the board that if I didn't want to play lower tier I could still get the top prizes.

I'll just copy what I posted in the general TR thread so you can have all this month's feedback in here.

 

I'm really puzzled as to who you had in mind with this month's TR?

 

It's not new players, seeing how you ask for tier IX-X, in 4 different class.

It's not casual players, seeing how we need 136 pts/day to get the top rewards. That's 7 out of the 8 active missions per day.

It's not the average players, seeing how you requires pretty specific results over many different class including in the high tiers. Unless that player is really dedicated.

 

But seeing the rewards I doubt that the veteran dedicated above average players are interested in them.

 

Personally, I can't reach tier III and IV even if I wanted to unless I rush a MT and a LT to tier IX.

Seeing the grind involved in even reaching tier II, I won't bother trying.

Last money was pretty much a give away due to the ease however the tier 9-10 reqs needs to go as it locks out new players from the top tier rewards while frustrating everyone else due to increased point reqs. I miss the old TR that rewarded people for just playing instead of making them play at tiers they either don't enjoy or perform poorly causing additional losses for everyone involved.

Remember when TR were in form of 20k XP daily missions and when you were able to earn a variety of tanks from tier 3 to tier 6 and get gold as compensation?
