So you have to watch streamers to get codes? No thanks

Wow that's what you got out of these posts or did you just jump in without reading anything? I'm not gonna give the "secret" out, READ!

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.

If the codes were released for the full 48 hour use, it wouldn't be so bad.  Most of the codes will only be usable for about 30-36 hours.  Straight off their website:  First code goes active at 0720 EST on November 1st, but the code itself won't be released for use til 2200 EST on November 1st.  Code expires at 0720 EST on November 3rd.  So about 32 hours that it can be redeemed.  So now let's say you have a job and you are in bed by the time the code gets released.  If you forget to redeem the code during the next day or the evening after work before you go to bed, you lose that code.

Might be tight getting all 31 codes this month... given there's only 30 days.   Those extra three bonus code credits will be a necessity.

Domo...thank you for all that you do for us. Still relatively new to this game (almost 3 years), but I'm having a blast and all these extra personal reserves take the edge off of some of the grinding. Thank you again.

I really enjoy the Scavenger Hunt and have managed to complete all but one (missed a code somehow) and all the goodies have been really helpful not to mention the nice XP rewards. I also like the Tank Rewards when they don't require vehicles I don't own. I enjoy them enough that when they are announced and it looks like I can complete them, I go ahead and buy premium time to maximize my earnings and pick up a low tier premium tank (the 30 days + free tank package for $12).

I work full time, have a family, and have my "honey do's" to perform, yet I can manage to find a few minutes each day to hunt down and enter the different codes, mostly due to the efforts of Warchild.

NO you don't.  There's other MUCH EASIER ways which have been mentioned by Domo himself even.

I'm logging in now are you saying they still botched it so the missions require 31.  Because if that's the case Domo may find himself unemployed and in need of bail money...

 

Spoiler

 

...because that happened last Scav Hunt.  IF that's the case I'm gonna guess he'll see to it we get an extra free token which is why we got one of the two "extra bonus" ones in September.

 

Edit:  Tabs not showing yet, I"m guessing cause the server hasn't reset (get my times mixed up as server doesn't follow DST), but I do notice the article says 31. 

 

And the link to Trob's channel on the article is busted - go figure.  Here folks, https://www.twitch.tv/trobsmonkey

 

I hope the article's borked, but considering Domo's avatar....      I"ll just leave that one hanging.

instead of watching streamers at a specific time, why doesn't Wargaming just make a 5 minute video for us to watch anytime with a hidden code in it?

they could do a different video everyday and on your own time.  They can have it ready everyday when the new code starts, after midnite? or something like it.

 

Just a thought :great:

This started as a way to thank streamers by giving them more views/traffic. 

 

If you want a summarized version just go to WC's code thread.

It hasn't been formally posted for quite some time.   I think it goes along with the "hunt", "seek", "find" part of a scavenger hunt?

I intentionally made the codes longer when generating them for this month. I poked the content team about getting the timestamps on the article, but it's correct here on my forum post: Each code is active for almost 3 days this time around, expiring at 18:00 Central 2 days after their drop date.

Generating bonus codes is not an instantaneous process. There is no way to time the codes so that they are generated with each Contributor's planned drop time to guarantee you a full 48 hour redemption window, which is why the redemption window is over 2 days long. Copy + pasting a bonus code shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes, so quite frankly regardless of whether a contributor releases their code in the morning or the evening, you have more than enough time to locate the code and activate it. In fact, most of the people reposting the codes end up generating them via auto-redeem links so you literally just have to click a link to redeem the code.

At its core the Scavenger Hunt event is intended to drive traffic to contributor channels - with this goal in mind, offering a fairly substantial window of time after the fact for you to redeem the codes regardless of whether you actually tune into each contributor's channel on their drop date is a pretty reasonable compromise. 

Additionally we kept the 31-day format because the missions have been working properly and we don't want to break something for the last Scavenger Hunt of the year - as is customary, and I mentioned in my OP here, all players will be receiving 3 extra tokens around November 20th, to make up for the discrepancy. I also might have a few extra codes up my sleeve in case we run into any issues as the month goes on.

I'll tell you, there are some guys so lazy that only serves to tie the [Mr.Fu]king of others. Going on vacation? To redeem the code use cellphone. When you return play the accumulated missions.

:facepalm:  Now that you mention I actually SEE that and in a nice bright highlighted hue to boot and TWICE.

 

This coming from the guy that posted "look at my boss proofreading skills" on the September wording in the beginning of the thread.  So good I not only completely missed the 31 day heads up that I quoted and removed said red highlighting from, but I mentioned it in both open forum and a PM.  :hiding:

 

Kudos to Domo for kindly pointing out that it's mentioned.  Sorry to add to your avatar's flames Domo.  :facepalm:

 

I hope my RNG is better than my reading skills otherwise I'll be like this guy not only in ye olde forum, but in game bouncing shots like ping pong balls.

the streamers do good work but some of us work late like myself and don't have the chance to see the live streaming or can't sit for the whole show to collect a code.

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.

 

Your loss.  I can't imagine why you would not want hundreds of Personal Reserves for free.

That's why you use this thread or the Reddit page to get the codes. No problem.  :)
