Tankers,

Please leave your feedback for the Trading Caravan event below. I encourage you to hold your feedback for after the event kickoff, so you can get a good idea of how everything functions before forming your opinion.

 

In particular, we're looking for specific feedback on the following points, but of course we welcome any and all feedback - good or bad - related to the event in general.

  • Event mechanics
  • Offers available
  • Perception of the event overall

 

I will be selecting 2 to 3 winners (depending on volume of replies) to receive a General Frost 2D style. I will enter the usernames of everyone who replies with feedback into a spreadsheet, then use a random number generator to select numbers and pick the usernames located on the corresponding row numbers in the spreadsheet. Commenting more than once will not increase your chances of being selected.

Thank you for your time.

Start times should be staggered so that they start at fairly decent  hours for each server.  Just a thought.

Start times are stupid, some of us work for a living and you totally shut us out of the special event with this crap, Wargaming giving people willing to spend money the middle finger well back at you.

That's great, but we all know how well WG random number generator works. It will probably pick the same winner 3 times in a row:trollface:

Not just the NA server but we are not going to have another Black Market.  This is what they are doing, instead.  This event and the one that we just got out of, last month.

Based upon the comments from overseas, this thing is getting implemented poorly and will be upsetting once folks realize how expensive it is and that popular items will sell out quickly with no recourse.  The idea was okay, but the rest...

I won’t be at home when these things break, so I’m locked out.  Oh well.  Badly done.

 

Okay, so the first piece still stands as the limited items were gone before I ever was able to log in after work.  Second complaint:  when you re-roll,  you shouldn’t be able to roll the same thing again.  They take your either free re-roll or 75,000 credits and give you the same thing???  Who thought this was a good idea??

Click on the Store button at the top left, it will open from there. Bottom right seems bugged.

 

Offer I got was the T22 for 25,000 bonds, is it worth it?

Restarted the game and all seems to be ok again.

 

Looks like it crashed?

 

Hit the shuffle button and the buttons greyed out, but it didn't bring up another item.  So I closed it and reopened through the Store button, and now it says: 'No bundles available, but you can still purchased saved bundles', however none of my 3/6 saved bundles are showing up...

 

Or have ALL of the possible bundles available today been purchased in the first 5 minutes?...  Cause that would be pretty f'n stupid.

Rerolled the T-22 for bonds, came back with T-22 for bonds.

 

Rerolling for camo or directives seems like really poor value. Players with significant collections are incentivized to not play. (Especially Astron owners. Give us a pile of training books or something for a silver instead of just a horn toot.)

Easy to understand and use. The shuffle option is cool to provide choices

  • Offers available

My offers from day 1:

10 aim tuning directives for 5K bonds: Seriously, 500 bonds each? 500 bonds for 1 games worth of consumables? Who TF would buy that? You can buy them in the shop for 10 bonds each.

900,000 credits worth of consumables for 980,000: Sorry no, I math better than that.

T77 for 10.1K gold: Actually a reasonable gold price for a tier 8 heavy, but with the added bonus that you cant usually get it for gold. Personally I've no interest in another tier 8 heavy, but might have considered it had it been offered for something less than "list" price.

  • Perception of the event overall

At the risk of passing judgement after only the first day, my overall perception is the same as it's been for the last several years of similar-esque events: I'll probably check it out for a few days and then stop bothering to even look. If the goal is to entice players to drain their in-game resources, try actually offering something at a price that is lower than, or at least equal too, what one could get it for during other in-game sales.

Spent 28m worth of Credits on rerolls, got the same offers back to back multiple times, not being able to remove saved Offers is a bad idear. Total fail in my books. Give us reroll protections atleast.

As a method of offering items to the players I support the concept. A different method and presentation.

 

A chance for newer players to get things they might not have.

 

A few new items to appeal to players who have most of what is being sold.

 

A new tank to spice it up for everybody.

 

That there were some glitches is disappointing and reinforces the idea that Wargamming are [edited]at implementation.

 

 

EDIT - The 2 main tanks, Kirovets and Astron, have sold out by the halfway stage. Not good. The Kirovets is my prime motivation for participating.

Did rerolls and realistically the event is not worth the credit drain - this morning was doing the event and too many camo cycling and useless items not worth the effort. WG needs to go back to the drawing board.

Way to many duplicates for 75k credits a pop. Also too many directive and crew skill packets in the offers. Maybe split the offers into tiers and the best offers you have to pay to re-spin for.

While the event seems like an awesome idea and it is easy to navigate the re-rolls, BUYER BEWARE.

I had an offer for the T103 for 1.5 million credits.  With the normal gold purchase price of 6400 gold, I "assumed" this was one of those sweetheart deals that Wargaming does from time to time to promote purchasing a tank.  Made the purchase, trained and buffed the crew, equipped and camo'd the tank only to find out the price is for a SEVEN DAY RENTAL.  As I am scrapping egg off my face realizing after playing as long as I have, I should have known better.

As others have noted, the idea is an awesome one and I fully support it.  For the players, I cannot stress enough to read every bit of the offer so as NOT to make the same error I did.

Good hunting.
