Ok, but.... why?

 

I mean I get its a Russian company who makes this game but wheres the link? Was he a tank commander before becoming a cosmonaut?

 

This just seems random as balls, like if they did a event to commemorate Babe Ruths last home run.....

Was Chuck Norris a tank commander before becoming an actor?  How about Simon Claws (Santa Claus), Queen Maeve, and Cmdr AF?

 

Sure it's random as balls, but you just need to relax and enjoy the game.

I was genuinely asking, Astro and Cosmonauts are usually drawn from the services, at least back then.

I really believe that Yuri Gagarin was a really good man. It was a sin that he died at age 34, I often wonder about the true circumstances of the plane accident. Russians love their heroes and Yuri was one. Of course he has nothing to do with tanks obviously but this is a Russian game after all, let them have their fun. I am sure they will (and have) commemorated non Russian people and events.

One day, soon, Russia and the USA will partner on many things beyond the ISS and realize our joint destiny of humanity.

So enjoy the pomp and ceremony from our Russian friends.

He was a fighter pilot. But you know, LOL World of Warplanes.

Chuck Norris' and his voice acting and the fact that you can't turn it off is one of the most annoying things in this game right now. I honestly don't care who they make as commander but I'm sick of commanders with non-optional voice packs. I can tolerate a custom portrait in the crew roster but I have no interest in hearing Yuri Gagarin praise the latest 5 Year Plan or Chuck Norris talk about punching tanks.

 

Right now there is basically the option to have commanders speak their native language or your native language (so for example my Type 5 Heavy commander speaks English). I would love for WG to make it so that you could disable custom voiceover commanders as well and have them speak the generic lines.

BTW, i actually found the Chuck Norris commander funny at first, but if I'm going to play like 100 games in a tank I want the ability to turn it off.

 

edit- And if Santa had a HOHOHO voiceover I would be pissed that santa was in the game.

 

I also take back my opposition to Gagarin if it turns out that he doesn't have a voiceover, though it seems odd they would brag about his professional voice acting if he wasn't.

Nice little event here, rewards and something to aim for each day is a nice addition.

Just another mission with rewards that are crap and as usual you can not sell them or get rid of them, bad plan.

lmbo the common mission is literally impossible for the low NA server population 

 

WG NA not adjusting the amount of points needed for the common mission based on server population is hilarious and very on brand for incompetence 

 

At the max we get 20k people online and IF every single person does the daily mission (award 150 points) the max points achievable PER day is 3 million points and check this each common stage is only avaiable for 1 day! HAHAAHA what a [edited]joke.

 

Stage 1 - 7,500,000

Stage 2 - 15,000,000

Stage 3 - 22,500,000

Stage 4 - 30,000,000

Stage 5 - 37,000,000

Another HO Hum non event that makes free stuff available BUT the money WoT wasted on this must be incredible!! The explanations of what,how and HOW to get them is designed for rocket scientists to understand!! If you want to expand the player base this ain't gonna do it at all. Tank University? GONE  Tank Rewards? GONE  Stream codes? GONE.... IF I complete these "missions" I get another free "commander" that they wanted to take away from us in the nonsensical 2.0 crew "realignment?" And of course we know how space missions were critical in tank warfare..... Another World of Tanks money grab for the Pay to play skanks....

Am I reading this right, that you either cash in your stupid tokens to progress up the chain of stages, OR, save them up and use them on crew books and such, but not both?

If you do all missions(one a day), you get a total of 1,800 star points in these tokens. It costs 1,500 to progress up to get Yuri.

The personal training manual costs 1,800, and the other selections are less.

So, do we have to choose which way we want to go here? Or, did WG(in it's infinite wisdom) create another paywall here that makes you buy more of these tokens, points, whatever to be able to get the maximum out of this event?
