It won't.

 

We allow one ID.me account to be linked with one WG account. It prevents someone with an ID.me account from sharing his privileges with people who don't qualify, like all his friends.

 

If your CZ account (and you're not supposed to have multiples, by the way, but let's overlook that for now) is not your primary, we may be able to remove the benefits from it and put it to the other one, but you're going to have to pick one and stay with it.

 

 wolfsbite was created back in 2015 but the game wouldnt download for me so it sat in limbo  for 4 yrs then i made the acct wolfsbite_CZ played that for 6 months then seen that i had forgotten about wolfsbite so i restarted that acct as well that is why i have 2 accts

Well, that's as may be, but you still have to pick one for the veteran's benefits.

DD214 has our SSN's on it. Not sure if this is a smart move. Lots of data given up.  What do you think? Is this a safe thing to do?

I'm not military, but I would be a little wary about linking my service to a company run in a foreign country.

Glad to see I am not the only one who sees it this way - got to admit - great way to get data on other nation Military/Vets

There are three private companies in the US accredited by the US Government to handle such data to Level 3 of NIST  (SP) 800-63. USAA, Zentry, and ID.me, which is in Virginia. The US Postal Service goes only to Level 2. See https://www.idmanagement.gov/buy/trust-services/ , and https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180816005147/en/ID.me-Identity-Provider-Approved-NIST-800-63-3-Conformant to the point that the VA uses ID.me as a verification system. https://finovate.com/id-me-teams-up-with-va-to-bring-identity-proofing-option-to-vets/ . You can verify this yourself by going to the VA website and looking at the login options.

 

We in WG do not receive any of the personal identification information you send to ID.me. All they tell us is veteran status, and an email address or account number.to prevent duplication. That's it.

 

If you're still reluctant to verify with ID.me (and there are other methods than SSN) that's fine, but be sure you're doing it for the right reasons.

Apparently we get the email address used on ID.me

I just wanted to say thank you for the Veterans Benefits. I have been enjoying them for about a year now and It's awesome. I only have two requests though if you don't mind. 

 

The store packages that you offer are a great discount and they allow us to buy some tanks that aren't otherwise on sale and I thank you for that. However, they are a large amount of money at one time. And longer time players like me already have most of what is in these packages. So for a player like me I have not bought any of the tank bundles simply because I only need 3 or so tanks from any one of them. This prompts me to ask some questions.

 

1. Is there a way to just offer a veteran the ability to buy one tank of the nation that he served in, even if it isn't on a discount? I mean I have that 10% coupon right? As well maybe I could use another 20% coupon that I earn from tank rewards yes? I would just like the ability to get some tanks one at a time of the nation that I served in. For instance the TS-5. That's really the only premium tank that I want that I don't already have from the American line. It's because I never went down the American TD lines. But, now that I am at that point of the game where I am trying to complete the campaigns, I need various tank types from many nations, forcing me to go down play styles that I am not good at. I would like to get the TS-5 but I don't need to spend 200 dollars to get it. I simply already have most of the other American premium tanks.

 

Can you offer a package that simply lets me pick one tank that I need, even if it isn't on discount? I would pay full price for it. It's just never for sale.

 

2. I love that you change up the packages now I guess ever six months. But can you tell us what the new package is going to be before the old one is gone? 200 bucks is a lot of money to me and I would like to at least look at what the new package is going to be before I lose access to buying the old one? I can't imagine spending 200 bucks only to regret it the next day when a new package comes out. Or missing out on getting the TS-5 because the new American premium package doesn't have it. 

 

Thank you, have a good one.

Nice to see this has been extended to Canada but a Canadian or British vehicle would make more sense given that we are part of the Commonwealth.
