Hello. are there still going to be new vehicles until the first? I was very, very hopeful the type-59 would be made available. As not being able to buy it is the sole reason I don't play world of tanks

Nope. 703 II will remain available until the end. No 59 for you....

I must echo what many have already said. I saved my gold, passed on a few tanks that I would have liked, but figured the 703 would be my best bet.... then you pull a serious "scrooge" by making the tank for cash only on Christmas morning. I seriously was surprised by such a "Bah Humbug / jerk" move... At least you could have posted that the last tank will only be available for cash a few days ago, so it would not have been such a let down today.  And to keep it that way for the next week will only rub our faces in it.

 

Saddening to see such a move.

I won't say "Screw you WG", as that's been said a million darn times over the course of the 10 years that the game as been around.  Let me say something a little more hurtful....

 

I'm dissapointed, WG.  I expected better from you...

Where have you been the past ten years? My expectations are already low.

And just like that, Wargaming gave me the middle finger, told me to F off, and not to make any purchases in 2021. So much for that gold-cash ratio that no longer exists, GOLD is about as useless and silver outside of grinding tanks!!!!! :)

I felt bad because i abandoned this game over a very petty issue, that of not being able to purchase one single tank. 

 

but after seeing how greedy wargaming has become with it slowly dwindling playerbase, i no longer feel bad for spending my depressingly large amounts of disposable income in that other, very similar, much larger game which will not be named.

I know what you mean, sometimes it feels like WG is trying to push players away from the game.

saving Gold, WG has enough from everyone who wanted another auto loader..  How many new auto loaders ready for 2021??  Why don't they make a auto loader server?

hoarding credits for 'BlackMarket..  At least when they Rip u off on credits your not losing much since they are free to us..  I hope the "Death star is back..

 Saving bonds and hoping for new Bond tanks.

It was clearly stated in the article that the last tank offered would be for cash only, like it was last year and the year before ......

why no more Advent missions for small boxes??  it shows that its from December 1st to Jan 1st..    Also for the new event it shows you can get them-->Win a Free 3D Style: Panzer Claus vs. Vital Spark!

 

Step 2: Collect Small Boxes

Once you've enlisted for either team, it's time to collect Small Boxes.

  • You can obtain Small Boxes by completing Missions From Chuck, Daily Special, and Advent Calendar Missions.
  • One point is awarded for each Small Box earned before Monday, Jan. 4 at 02:00 PT | 04:00 CT | 05:00 ET.

Maybe have a final day where all the tanks on the calendar are listed. That way those of us that feel wronged by having skipped and sitting with a pile of gold can get a consolation prize...

Y'all acting like we didn't have a leaked list OR know that the last tank was a cash-only tank BEFORE this event. We knew that this is an RNG event and no one is guaranteed a win.

 

And to all those that complain that they have 20, 30, 40k gold laying around with nothing to "spend it on", consider that you can save the gold for the upcoming latest premium tanks.

The list wasn't 100% accurate.

They rarely release the new prem tanks for gold either soooo.... just a flash sale for $$$ then poof till they want to bring them out again for another quick cash grab.

And either way this is one of the most preditory microtransactions for xmas/holidays that I have seen and each year it gets a little worse instead of better.

That would have been great. Can't see the harm in that from WG's perspective.

I would've liked WG to stick to what they said and make the last tank in the line "a special one", the reason why at least I thought was going to be for real currency only, and also a detail implied by the lady in the WoT videos.

We did end up with a "special" tank, but... not precisely "special" in the way I figured...

 

Now, I wasn't expecting a 59, perhaps at most a V/IV... However, in all due honesty, I just wanted to be surprised.

Didn't matter what with, but - wait! Surprised with something worth spending money on, of course! Or that I already didn't have because it's been for sale 23,948,209,809,382,019,382 times in the previous week. Or at least that's the impression I was left with. Everything in the calendar has been for sale multiple times across the year.

 

So... yeah, in this regard, "disappointment" sums it up pretty accurately.

Cheers and Happy New Year.
