Thanks for this bonus, guys.  It was a pleasant surprise.

 

I have a question about the coupon, though.  How does the regeneration work?  I used it for a discount on the Offspring tank and it regenerated immediately.  Do I have to buy something every week to keep the coupon regenerating, or will the 7-day countdown start over after it expires or what?


Thanks.

I have been verified through account management and have got nothing. I have closed and restarted the game and still nothing. Submitted a ticket, nothing.

I think this is a great initiative.  I would however like to suggest we do not only include Americans.  There are quite a few Canadian military people who play.  Is there no way to extend this?

Thank you for the recognition and the awards. Being an old Vietnam vet it's nice to get something good instead of a kick in the [edited] :)

Does this work on the console version too? I am an Xbox One player for over 4 years on WoT

just want to say i’m happy to see WG offering this to veterans, however i don’t play PC anymore and was just wondering to see if there were plans to continue this to the console players.

Obviously I don't post much on the forum, and maybe this is why it doesn't let me share the image or even reference a link through the photo option (I get an error message when I try).  You can view the screenshot here:   https://imgur.com/7rTOgB5

 

 

I'm told that they have changed the system so that they no longer say that they will send us all that information. If someone who hasn't yet signed in can confirm...

After seeing that this is not yet available on console, since I linked the id.me to this war gaming account, will I be able to transfer or link it to my console account?

 

I was surprised to see i had to create a separate account here because I already had created one that is linked to my Xbox account.

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?
 


Its through the ID.ME site which you need to use anyway for veterans benefits.  i dont think you are sharing data with wg but just letting id.me verify that you are a vet.

You are correct sir! Thank you for recognizing our paranoia and helping alleviate it. This is what they show now as information given only email, group association (assume vet or active duty?), branch, and member branch. Thanks again this IS a great deal.....I can hardly wait for my VETERAN LOOT BOX under the tree! LOL

My happiness at this offer was short-lived as I scrolled through the information only to find that this benefits US service members / Veterans. I am happy that you get this deal! I am disappointed that other nationalities don't. When it comes to some of the "nice" things one can receive with Veteran status from multi-national corporations, I find that they tend to stop short of helping out all veterans. I know that company policies vary, and while people that run some companies have affiliations with the military that they deem to be very important, others only provide a small benefit because other companies in their sector do or for marketing purposes. WG is International. If they are going to provide this nice benefit for US Service people, they should be making a commitment to ALL veterans, and not just a "maybe if and when we get around to it". My service was not less important than anyone else's service. There are I'm sure a ton of veterans of other nations militaries playing Tanks or Ships or whatever in lots of other countries. They are all as deserving. I get that it is relatively painless for WG to use ID.me, and that there is no real equivalent elsewhere, but just because it is more difficult doesn't mean it is wrong, or unimportant. The message I get from being refused on the basis that I am a vet but not a US vet is that because my country has a smaller population, it is inconsequential, and so is the contribution I, my family and my military family made. Make a commitment WG! We'll give you some time! Give us a plan to include us too!

The offer is nice, but if you can't include everyone, then it really is just marketing.

got confirm email yesterday AM.   nothing yet as far as all these "benies"; here, email, or most importantly, in garage.

 

as has been pointed out; many of us draft era vets provided our DD214 with SS# showing(!).  :deer:

did we all just get sucker-punched?  i don't need yet ANOTHER "military" site to give me (us?) an ID. 

have all i need; most importantly, the one which accesses ALL vet & active official US Govt sites.

 

bad enuf that U included these asinine Mario Bros wheelie carts... now yur scamming all us veterans for personal info above & beyond what U have already gathered?

 

groan :facepalm:
