Event Page updated for me with current coin balance (300); however there is no way to see or select rewards. I should be able unlock one of the elements now. Can we get a status update from WG on event page issue resolution?

 

Try refreshing the page and make sure you're still logged in I think I timed out at some point.  I honestly don't think I closed the tab or logged myself out, but it's possible I guess.   And I had to scroll around a bit before I could click anything even on the rewards page.  Maybe the page had to come out of stand by mode or something and this was right after I logged in and clicked rewards.  So the page should've been awake so to speak.

 

Which brings up another point folks.  For me I preferred to click rewards in the upper right hand corner or you can can scroll down and click rewards.  That page's layout is easier on the eyes for me and a bit more consolidated and less wonky to navigate than the first opening page imo.

The "landing page" was updated almost instantly for me when I completed my mission for the day about an hour ago.

It also displays the various rewards et that I can collect with my coins correctly and I use Chrome

 

I still can't believe anyone looked at the page design and said "That looks good, we'll go with that design" or words to that effect, to me it suggest that the designer(s) and their manager has had roughly the same amount of Belaya Rus while at work, a not inconsiderable amount if you ask me

So to sum it up, it works for me but it hurts my eyes

Why does WG honor the Chinese Lunar New Year but ignore the Lunar New Years of other cultures? Thats what I would like to know.

The crew seemed to be bugged, redeemed a 100% 0-perk BIA and recruited him and he did not have the 0-perk BIA skill on him.

 

It's actually me not knowing they are in my barracks LOL. No bug, fake news!

Oh hell you didn't go there did you?  I won't mention any names, but the last time someone eyes hurt from an in game page it was all those bothersome and clunky mission tabs.  And we all got CODES foR all of US as a result.  :B

No clue, but guessing probably not.  This is the PC Master Race forums.  But it's possible, personally I'm not sure what events are active on the serf's server.  :trollface:

 

Plus one for taking the cheap shot. ;)

I got the Combat Intel notification to go spend my gold coins but the "landing page" is a complete blank other than the header graphic, some text that launches itself off the right side of the page when I scroll down, and a left-right scroll bar 1/4 of the way down the page.  No hints as to how to buy anything. I hope the 6x insignia for each sign are good because it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get anything else out of this. :(

Potato way.

 

My Lunar page shows only 150 coins but the game client shows 300 coins. WG cannot program correctly a simple task. I heard that the best programmers had left GW and organized their own company. So WG has only crappy programmers now who cannot complete a simple task. I can believe it - Halloween event, Dawn of Industry event, Lunar New Year event. What else is broken?

LOL calm down Francis.  Over your head and did a hard 180 and hit you right in the feels.  Of course they were already sore by WG's lack of acknowledging all the other Lunar New Year calendars celebrations

 

Google Dogon Tribe and check out their knowledge of the night sky so to speak.  More specifically astronomy and particularly the Sirius System.

Update: I downloaded Chrome and the Landing Page worked fine on it (I normally use Firefox).  The Page is a mess - poorly designed and poorly coded - but I managed to redeem my 300 coins for a Water Sign and so the quest begins.

Thanks

Yep.  As far as I know, each mission is only available for 1 day.

Question:  When I redeemed my coins for the Water Sign, I got a recruitable "unique crewmember through 5/25/2020."  Does that mean I have to recruit and assign them by May 25 or that they will disappear entirely, even if in a tank, on May 25?

Yes they'll expire then and disappear.

 

Edit:  The dates may be based upon when we recruit them.  Also some like the Personal Mission girls don't have expirations.

 

Just wondering why they have an expiration as most outside of the Twitch deal deals don't nowadays.  The PM and Holiday OP crews don't nor does the crew from the race event.

So, the SEA sever is running the same event, but 888 players who participate are randomly getting a Type 59 - Is this same on NA? The landing page for the events look the same, but I can't find the draw email from NA; is there a separate code for the draw - or something?

 

(Just trying to decide which account to play. (Since I can't get them merged, on either server, so I only have one - grumble grumble...))

 

(Edit: ok it's only 64 winners getting a tier VIII premium, rest are getting premium time ( https://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/game-events/lny-2020/#  )  I can't find the raffle part on the NA server event - so unless someone knows better - I'm guessing this is a SEA only thing? )

 

(Edit2: From the rewards section  VIIIg142_m48rpz_icon.svgM48A2 Räumpanzer  OR  VIIIch01_type59_icon.svgType 59  (Medium Tank raffle tickets) WHAT A CHOICE!!! I wonder which one to pick :-b

Wait, does the winner get to pick, it's unclear... ? Imagine getting so close, then getting the 'dozer...  WG - that's just cruel.)

Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

This here is a special event to earn some universal "zero skill" BIA crews, crew books, and some x5 XP tokens for any vehicle. 

 

These missions run from now (23Jan) until 4Feb

 

How they work is so simple, even I can understand it..... 

 

I hope. 

 

You got your 12 missions in your missions tab that represent each animal in the Chinese zodiac.

Completing them earns you these radical gold coins that count towards the mission. There is a bonus sleepy cat thing you can poke to check your progress in-game.

 

Now you have to complete an element to earn the Crew which is 300 gold coins.

 

This unlocks the 5th element of Metal which awards some crew books and a training manual. 

 

If you aren't feeling the crew or the books/manual you can spend your gold on other super cool things like camo, tanks, reserves, and Premium time. 

 

For more information on the event click HERE.

 

To check out the spiffy progress page click HERE.

 

 

Don't let this guy beat you to the punch.



Ninja Edit by Domo: Please leave your feedback in my Event Feedback forum thread!
(if you already left feedback in boop's thread, don't worry, I will be checking this one as well)

 

 

Sigh...

From the TAP article.  Thanks RB plus one.

 

To save folks from zooming.  Gilded pack odds:  7 days 65%, 14 days 20%, 21 days 10% & 30 days 5%.

 

https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2020/01/25/world-of-tanks-lunar-new-year-missions-and-why-wargaming-is-greedy-again/

 

EDITED: This has come to my attention. On the SEA server, Wargaming has to abide by the law and disclose all lootbox odds.

 

 

As you can see, gilded pack isn’t as gilded as it seems.

 

 

Dr. John cover.
