Tankers, 


Just a quick update: The Holiday Ops event will end on January 14th, but your unlocked holiday ops vehicle slots will persist until January 28th.

With that in mind, make sure you break down your ornaments into shards and reach the highest level of Festive Atmosphere bonus that you can before January 14th. Collections, Albums etc. will be going away on the 14th, but your slots will remain a while longer - that way you can utilize the Holiday Ops bonus levels for each tier. 

Additionally, reaching festive level tier X will provide you with Soviet Blueprints, which should help you fast-track up the new Soviet Double-Barreled line that's coming up soon!

For all the details, check out the article on the news portal.

Thanks Domo.

 

Now, I'm just hoping that when the Holiday slots get taken away on the 28th that the tanks I have in them don't go too.

They definitely should not! I can't imagine that happening but in this line of work I've come to know that one should never say "never."  If something like that were to happen, Customer Support would be able to help out.

So the least exciting portion of the Holiday Ops is going to hang around for a while. Neat.

Yeah, the Slots that give class-dependent bonuses and can't be used with Premium tanks, those slots.......wow gee Wargaming how thoughtful :sceptic:

Will the credit bonus persist for all tanks, or just for the tanks we have in the Holiday Ops slots?

Just the Holiday Ops slotted vehicles the way I read it.  Also another couple things.  Doing a direct copy/paste from WC's code thread so if the context is stilted a bit that's why.

My text in blue.

 

 
EVENT: BEGINS: ENDS:
Holiday Ops 2020 Main Event Ongoing Jan. 14 at 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET
Holiday Ops 2020 Vehicle Extension Jan. 14 at 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET Jan. 28 at 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET

 

Moreover, the maximum Credit bonus you achieve during the event applies to tanks placed in your Holiday Ops Vehicles' slots. Play at your leisure and farm tons of Credits along the way!

 

Swapping the bonus vehicles will change a bit for the extension.

 

You can change each tank in the branch once a day for free, but additional changes will require you to spend a few Credits. A little hint: the cooldown resets daily when the game servers restart, just like your ×2 XP First Victory bonus.

 

This isn't a surprise as it's been speculated, but I personally haven't seen anything official that the double barrel line jumps off the KV-3 though I may have just missed it. 

 

These blueprints help you research the upcoming Soviet double-barreled vehicles faster. The new sub-branch starts with the KV-3 at Tier VII, and the Holiday Ops Vehicles will help you earn more XP so you can drive it.

I have not used a single one since they don't apply to premium vehicles.

Considering your avatar and that fire pic you posted when the credit boosters got added back that's no surprise.

 

HQ's monetization department anytime NA calls.  :B

I can't describe how disappointing that is to me. If that's true, then I second this:

People have suggested that it should be possible to turn regular tanks into premiums or semi-premiums. That's sort of what this does, temporarily. I like it and I'm glad we get it a bit longer.

You rather have a poke in the eye with a sharp stick ?   No ?   I thought not.

And for all you numbskulls that will wait 'til the afternoon or evening of the 14th to act, and then complain that the event ended earlier than they heard it would.

 

IT ENDS IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE AM ON THE 14th !!  So, for practical purposes, for the great majority of us... we should get it all done no later than the night of the 13th.  You have been warned.

 

                                                            :great:

An excellent warning. You'd think people would be used to it by now, given that every event in living memory has ended that way, but there are always a few who still complain.

So you have researched all the tanks you have wanted to then. I mean the bonuses help in getting xp and crew xp so it really isnt a bad thing

A Special Bonus to Free XP, Combat XP, or Crew XP

If you’ve reached Festive Atmosphere level V or higher, you can still take advantage of your Holiday Ops Vehicles. Like before, these machines receive a special bonus to the Free XP, Combat XP, or Crew XP earned in Random Battles. Remember, the type of bonus depends on the type of vehicle!

Moreover, the maximum Credit bonus you achieve during the event applies to tanks placed in your Holiday Ops Vehicles' slots. Play at your leisure and farm tons of Credits along the way!

 

Does the quoted text in Blue mean that I have to leave all the decorations in place until the event ends?  No last minute sharding in a vain attempt to get more slots in my albums filled?

I'm kinda hoping they keep, and expand upon, this feature. I use to love the "Reserve" feature in Aslain's Mods when I was running them.

Now that I'm running a vanilla client, I'm really missing the ability to separate/filter tanks that I want to play from those that I don't with a quick filter click.

Thanks for posting this Domo, it is appreciated. I may not completely complete this years, but I will finish that last two years, before it's over and I will be a happy camper about that, at least.
