November Scavenger Hunt

 Every day, one of our Community Contributors will be releasing a Bonus Code at a scheduled time.

 

Here’s the Catch: Each code is only active for 2 days, starting at 00:00 on November 1st

 

1st Code: Active from 00:00 CDT on November 1st to 18:00 CDT on November 3rd.

2nd Code: Active from 00:00 CDT on November 2nd to 18:00 CDT on November 4th

3rd Code: Active from 00:00 CDT on November 3rd to 18:00 CDT on November 5th

 

...so on and so forth, until November 30th.

We will be kicking off the November Scavenger Hunt on the news portal, under the November Scavenger Hunt article.

 

As customary, all Scavenger Hunt participants that redeem at least 1 Code this month will receive credit for 3 extra codes on the 20th, provided they redeem that code prior to 23:59 on 11/19.This will allow you to receive the 30K XP Bonus for 31 Codes.

 

After polling the community on the Forums and Discord, we've decided to go with the simpler route and simply release 3 extra Scavenger Hunt Codes.

These Codes are active until December 1st, 00:00 CT

So what exactly does this code give you? A set of personal missions tied directly to how many codes you redeem during the month of November. Here's how they work:

 

Each code you redeem will give you 1 "Secret Sign" Token. This token allows you to complete Personal Mission: "Scavenger Hunt" 1 time. That means that the number of times you're able to complete this mission directly correlates to how many codes you've gathered. If you gather 5 codes, you'll be able to complete it 5 times.

 

The more codes you gather during the month of November, the more missions you will be able to access, and the more rewards you will receive. Players will receive access to additional missions, based off of milestones for total number of November Scavenger Hunt Codes redeemed. You can review all the missions, and their corresponding rewards in the table below:

 

MISSION LIST

 

Checking How many codes you've redeemed:

 

Checking how many times you've completed the "Scavenger Hunt" Mission for Boosters:

The number next to "Completed" in the window that comes up after clicking on the panel in your mission UI tells you how many times you've completed this mission.


 

You can also click on any of the other missions to see how many "Manual" Tokens you've received. The number of manual tokens can also be used to track how far away from completing these various tiered missions.

Checking the progress on your tiered reward/milestone missions:

 


 

For all intents and purposes, the most important to keep track of are your "Manual" tokens because these tokens are what will trigger your Tiered Reward/Milestone missions.

 

If a contributor is releasing the code one letter at a time, they are obligated to finish and release the entire code at the scheduled time. If a streamer starts up their stream early, they are not obligated to reveal the code until the scheduled time as well.
Keep an eye on the time that each contributor will be releasing their code! 


Please don't harass my CC's. They're all really nice people and they're doing both me and you a favor by signing up for the Scavenger Hunt and creating all this awesome content around it. If you harass my contributors I will curse you with a lifetime of bad RNG and 6-arty games. Okay, I don't actually have the ability to do that but I won't like you very much.

 

 

"Oh boy, Domo. That's a lot of text, and it's all pretty confusing! Why's this so complicated!?"

I know it seems complicated, but it's really not. It's just really difficult to quickly articulate via text. At a very basic level, here's what you need to know.

1. Redeem a Code

2. Login, place in top 10 XP earners on your team in a battle. 

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 every day, up to 31 times, and get extra prizes.

4. Keep an eye on your tokens to make sure you're using the right tank for your 30th and 31st completions, because these will award XP to the vehicle that's used to complete the mission.

Side notes: 

  • You don't have to log in and complete missions every day. The missions are active all month, so you can complete them at your own pace.
  • While you don't have to complete the missions every day, you've only got 2-day windows to redeem the codes themselves.

 

As customary, all Scavenger Hunt participants that redeem at least 1 Code this month will receive credit for 3 extra codes on the 20th, provided they redeem that code prior to 23:59 on 11/19.This will allow you to receive the 30K XP Bonus for 31 Codes.

 

After polling the community on the Forums and Discord, we've decided to go with the simpler route and simply release 3 extra Scavenger Hunt Codes that will be active until the end of the Month. This will allow you to gain 31+ codes despite there only being 30 days in the month.

These Codes are active until December 1st, 00:00 CT

Plus one.  :)

 

Just a friendly copy paste oops heads up Domo.  You're first mention of the 3 bonus codes still references redeeming the code by 9/19.  I know what you mean and the last mention has the correct date.

Just figure an early edit will save some "reply time".

 

Again thanks Domo.   Great daily rewards and that 40k end reward xp great for grinding. :)

As usual, CC's will be the weak link in the whole thing.  This is nothing new.  Pardon me but I will be sitting this one out.

If you don't want to deal with the occasional hiccup as life throws us curveballs, I recommend bookmarking Warchild's monthly Scavenger Hunt thread here on the forums or the inevitable Scavenger Hunt Reddit Thread that will be made once the event starts.

Good stuff and I look forward to it. I don't suppose in the future, WG could look to substitute a new prize for the 20th redemption? I've got something like 30 extra garage slots right now.

Most people seem to be happy about upcoming new code missions. Myself at a quick glance find the overall skim of this event a little confusing with the necessity to watch CC's that I might not even know and or like, then put in a lot of gaming time, this sounds to me like something that will be very time consuming. Sort of schedule fit for a school drop-out kid with parents willing to let them have unlimited time in front of a computer.

Not really, you can see the codes posted everywhere, within the forum, Discord, Reddit, you name it.

The Code thing bugs me because while it's easy to get a daily code, getting 27-30 is a bit more difficult. But even then it's not so much the difficulty- it's that as the month goes on and you have invested in getting the codes each day you become increasingly anxious about not missing one. There is the ever present threat you go out to dinner or take a short trip and lose all your progress. 

Yes, Warchild for one posts a helpful list but he can't change the fact that the codes expire in 48 hours and way too often the party responsible for posting waits 18-24 hours to post. 

If you like doing it, more power to you. For me it's not a fun hunt: it's a stress inducing chore.

Yay! this will make my Stock Tier IX tanks VERY HAPPY :great: 40K xp is really nice for those 60K xp gun grinds.

Congrats to you Domo it's been a year (almost a year?) since you first started these Scavenger Hunts! funny to see how the whole thing has improved/gone smoothly with less problems than the first time.

+1 for the extra detailed information about what to look for and where in the Missions tab.

 

Now, with an optimistic view, I'm hoping to only see 3 threads from players asking "...where do I find the how many I've completed?...".

Heads up...you can only miss two codes to still get up to 31 codes total, because November only has 30 days, not 31...good luck for those travelling for the holidays!

The file is getting pretty big.  Maybe it is time to start a new Codes-R-Us v.2.0 page to streamline things a bit.  Just add a link on the first page (there's like 92 pages attached now).

 

Keep up the good work, many of us appreciate your efforts.

I just have it load the first page...the rest doesn't seem to slow it down any...

While WC is the go-to guy, sometimes he sleeps late, or being part of the old guy club, takes a nap, and someone else posts the codes at the end of the thread.  Which is easy enough to skip to, just saying, at 92+ pages it's getting to be a long thread.

 

Btw:  WC, did you get the Geritol coupons I sent you?  I get a discount if you use them.  Or we can go in on a case if you want.
