Tankers, January Tankrewards kicks off today! It started January 3rd 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET and will last until January 26th 03:00 PT | 05:00 CT | 06:00 ET.

 

This month's tankrewards campaign commemorates the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, one of the largest tank skirmishes in history. Also known as the Ardennes Counteroffensive, the Battle of the Bulge was one of the last offensive campaigns by the German military on the Western Front. Starting December 16th, 1944, the offensive campaign was intended to cripple Allied forces at the port of Antwerp in Belgium. Though the US military suffered many casualties, the Allies rallied their air and ground forces to beat back the German army until they withdrew on January 25th, 1945.

 

Head over to the news portal for more details.

I'm going to say the same thing here that I said in the other thread:

I think the difference between the top tier payout options is kind of crappy. An M10/Panther retails at 5750 gold while a week's prem is only 1750 yet WG is presenting these 2 options as equivalent. cheap bastards IMO

The Panther M/10 is a fantastic tank for those that don't have it already. Additionally, you can sell the sucker before you claim the new one for some sweet credits.

 

We have to let the old "golden" days go as they shall not be returning.  Yes, Tank Rewards used to be better, but it's more consistent and more frequent now.  Rather than spanning 2 months, they last just 1 and 7 days of PT is nothing to sneeze at, nor are Tier VII tanks.

 

Would I like to return to the old days?  Sure, but then again, I'd like to see hair on the top of my head and my abs as well, but those ships have sailed never to return...  :sceptic:

Why does the mission "Preparation" not work?

 

Random Battles, Grand Battles, Skirmishes, and Advances

Tier II vehicles and higher

Once per day

Thanks, Domo - I hv a love/hate rlatnship w Tank Rewards - it gives me nice incentive to work the missions, but then I hv to WORK the missions...

 

FYI, the mission "Preparation" does not exist/it's a duplicate of Ardennes Counteroffensive...

 

Agree w the disparity complaint about only 7 days Premium Time v a tier VII tank....  (but I'm still going for the PT - I don't play mediums...)

That's what I was wondering also. The website shows 11 missions, but only 10 missions show up in the client. Guess it's a coding typo/duplicate.

I think you'll get a lot more productivity out of the week's worth of premium.  WC is in the minority of people who believe that the m10 is "awesome."

Yes It kinda sucks for us that bought this tank with money. 

However this tank does not do enough alpha damage. If you are fighting tier 8s you pretty much have to play like a td and hope your team does well so you can rush in and help clean up.

When I first started this game I bought this panther and partailly because I was clueless and partially because it has low alpha and lots of hit points it really messed with my stats. There are lots of meds thats have better alpha and I would always choose them first.

I also bought teh Jtig 8.8 but thats another story lol, sixth sense is always nice and a clue.

Glory days of the past.  As for the hair part, using a black camo net.   :D

Maximum points per day is..... 210?

 

EDIT:  Okay, maybe 220 is what I meant, because I've done all of them over the first two days, and now have 440, so 220 per day?  Or are some not daily?

I accumulated 300 points last night. I had 2-100 token missions, 3-20 token missions, and some 10's. Not sure I finished them all.

Correct, 220 for most, 320 for verified Veterans (the id.me thing) as they get an extra 100 point mission.

yeah but the wins in tier locked missions is annoying and just encourages seal clubbing

But being at the mercy of wins...  This makes the lower tiers particularly interesting...
