5th Anniversary Specials: EU vs NA

78

Good evening,

these are the specials for the fifth WoT anniversary:

Nothing new here, EU players are  again getting the short stick by being milked with bundles, even the “appreciation” package for long term players costed   99.99. Seems like what was spoken to Wargaming at Cyprus hasn’t completely passed through the skull of the EU marketing team who’s been consistently the most thick headed department, and yes, nowadays we have fair prices with tank bundles but still,  99.99 euros, for mostly powercreept-shatted on tanks? That’s 1/4 (if not more) of a monthly minimum salary in many EU countries! Why cant every EU player have a chance at getting the tanks they wish? Also, if they milk the players why can’t they add at least nearly as much missions as NA does?

fu2

On the NA side, as usual, they introduce things after EU and then add extra this or that on a “d*ck” measuring contest but even their “special” free tank seems a bit lame and lazy, was expecting them to give a bigger variety of tanks like EU did or, if just a single vehicle, something more special than a LTP. I suppose its free credits and garage slot to add with the other freebies… at the end of the day, NA players win.

Note: There will be more “offers” apparently, but my hopes are already very low, we will see.

    Too bad they gave away the LTP for the 2013 anniversary so if you have played for 2 years or more you have already sold the tank 5 times or farmed the gold only this time it will be credits. Really with they gave brand new tier 2 even.

  6. Deano says:

    the 100 euro package is a complete joke id struggle to justify spending more than 25 euro these days on wot because the game just isnt as much fun as it used to be for me partly because of their incompetence in balancing their game *cough* premium ammo *cough* arty *cough* e5 *cough* is3 *cough* there are others too but those are the most prominent. maybe i need another break from the game but i cant help but remember the days back before the big return of artys and before the introduction of the wtf 100.

    its frustrating because there was a period of months where you could play at tier 8 and see maybe 2 artys in total if you played for 4 hours where as now if you go above tier 6 theres basically a guarantee to be at least 2 per side and when theres 5 per side in a tier 10 game you may as well just quit out because that games gonna take the full 15 mins because everyone is afraid to move from cover.

    i just hope at this point that wot does go the way of war thunder i cant even look at that game any more yet i loved it more than wot for a while but the games own creators just ruined it but im hopeful right now because the new physics were a definite step in the right direction so if they continue in that direction and have a patch which completely tackles an issue all at once in each of the different patches then thatd be great. (as in rebalancing the tiers to make power creeped tanks relevant and over powered tanks balanced even if they just do it tier by tier in lots of patches id be happy or a patch which solves the prem ammo issues or arty issues all at once id be really happy so i hope they take this approach and dont half ass it)

        Why? The T-10 is great. The IS-8 was great and a well balanced tier 9 with a good gun, great mobility for a heavy, and very reliable turret armour but shitters couldn’t just point their front at the enemy and win like they could in the IS-3 so WG buffed it unnecessarily so its side armour is E 75 level + magic Russian spaced armour, the turret was buffed for fuck knows what reason, etc. but pubbies still cry that it’s bad because its frontal hull armour isn’t IS-7 level.

    These NA rewards are garbage for being a 5 year anniversary bonus special. would have liked to get a tier 4 exclusive tank for free for playing dedicatedly for 5 years! I’m tempted to just skip out on their 5 year anniversary specials completely. i am so thoroughly disappointed

    • “sharap peasant and pay for the privilege to play and the new Cyprus HQ. You think those custom seats are free?” Seriously now, both specials suck, but NA is at least free, whilst the EU costs you 100 freekin euros.( half a salary in my country). As the HQ went up, ht gameplay and quality just went steadily down, and it seems like not even it’s creators can recognise this “Frankenstein” of a game. Oh, and the fact they decided to make a new server hub in freekin Kazachstan!!!!, when one in eastern europe is not only a must, but becomes a necessity ( delayed renders, freezes and sudden FPS dropps/ping spikes are commonplace now). It seems like it’s becoming a pattern now. Make an awsome game, then crew it up once it aquires a large player base you can milk on a regular basis.

    i remember that i think for their 2 and 3 year anniversary, they had showers of good prizes and stuff. this 5 year anniversary is hardly even worthy of being called a shadow of those deals for either server. They could have made rare tanks up for purchase (or at least rental) as a special thank-you to the dedicated gamers. (It’d be awesome to try the M6A2E1 or bring back the T-50-2 for a limited time rental)

      Honestly, I would have liked to see them actually start selling all the premiums below T10 (don’t really want them to ever sell a T10 premium). I’d have bought most of them once, upon a time…not any more though, not another dime from me.

      For me, the last straw was not replacing the FV215b, a fake tank, with the Chieftain, as they promised 3 years ago.

    • yeah, so have I, on EU. Of course, I won’t pay a cent on this sh*t package, but since you guys on NA only have to play 5 games and win, seems like a give away to me. Especially if you get compensated, you get credits and a few free garrage slots ( which cost 300gold each BTW). So, thunbs up NA, and a biiig _I_ to EU staff.

    The EU 100Euro package is pretty ****. The Pz38H is not an awful tank, but it certainly is a victim of power creep. I have seen more of them that usual (I usually only really see one when I take mine out), so a few people are buying the packages.

    They should have just handed a tank out depending on how long you had been playing, if the3y really cared about the players, but all we are to them is “£££s,” which is stupid and short-sighted.

    Did anyone really expect anything more? They have come through with a very few of the promises made last year. Everyone seems to forget that Wargaming is a big business. Therefore they will do all of the things any big business will do, AKA saying one thing and doing another. Final solution, stop giving them money!

    I’ve been into Warframe lately and it really put into perspective how hilariously stingy companies like Wargaming and Gaijin are. Both these guys will make you complete “tasks” or an “event” for a tier 1 – 3 shitty premium.

    Being used to that, I was incredibly surprised when Digital Extremes, for their 3 year anniversry of Warframe, gifted all players a shiny and improved version of an existing fan favourite weapon, which has become one of the best weapons in the entire game.

    THAT is how you reward your players for their loyalty.

    • Plus Obsidian gave everyone who plays AW a Type 59 “legend” last Christmas which is a very good tank in its tier. What did WG give us? On NA we got a funny video where at least one WG employee recognized how crappy the Christmas tanks really were advertising them as a free garage slot. Oh and said crappy tank we all sold and kept the free garage slot as advertised 🙂

        Also do not forget the T62 Veteran. That was another nice tank they gave freely by just logging in.

        In addition
        a) AW doesn’t hammer you if the game was lost but you played well. You can make good money and xp, without pissing you off with losing money to a crap team.

        b) You can make “premium” any tank you like for 500-1000 gold. Fox & OF40 are my all time favourite tanks, which I constantly play (alongside Zhalo S from the pre-order of beta).

        c) Gold to xp conversion rate, is great if you want to bypass a tank that you do not like. I did it on swingfire to get to Fox. 380 gold was needed. On the contrary WoT & WT are more expensive so no conversions for me there.

        d) AW is more balanced. You get a Tier 3 tank, and rarely you will face tier 4. Never tier 5. And if you do because you are member of a platoon, they do not one shoot you and you can fight your way through the battle against anything. WoT, a tier 3 tank in T5, or worst a Tier 5 tank in tier 7 not only you cannot do even sh*t, but you will get trolled 1 shot from something, making you lose money and get frustrated.

        And we play games to have fun, not get frustrated. Hence no more WoT for me.

        @Panos I can’t like because I don’t have a WP account but have a virtual +1.
        Don’t forget the Gold Rush event, 3k gold for playing 5 battles a day was generous and the daily bonuses just for logging in.
        I’ve played WoT since 2012 but have been playing much more AW lately because it’s basically a lot more balanced, fun, and there’s far less cash grabbing going on. On PvE mode there’s hardly any toxic garbage in chat either.

    So how is the LTP a gift tank for anyone who has played the game since before August 2nd, 2013 when they gave it away to every player as part of the WG 15th anniversary celebration? You only get 170,000 silver, which is nice, but I really would have liked the gold.

    For some reason, I’ve actually kept my LTP even though it is a poor tank. Oh right. I kept it in case I ever won one again so I would get the gold value. I guess I can free up a slot in my garage now.

    At least I’m going to get 12 boosters, a day of premium (really broke the bank there), and 2 garage slots from these missions.

    I have to say I’m kind of disappointed. The previous anniversaries led me to believe that the 5th (a special anniversary) they would be doing something special. The graduated missions on NA are kind of neat, but the bundles on the EU, ouch! 100 Euros for tier 2 or 3 tanks? Not unless it’s a Panzer II J. Then there are the usual inflated “special” bundles. *SIgh*

    So sad to see a once great game getting worse every patch.
    Right from the start 5 years ago there where a few big issues with WoT but the never got rid of a single one. Instead they implementet even more imbalanced and plain stupid useless stuff.
    It seems the are trying to f*ck up the whole game as hard as possible on purpose.

    You’d think now that the game is 5 years old they could claim a statute of limitations on those old pre-order tanks before the game went live – it’s literally free revenue for players like myself who didn’t find the game until a few months after it was released and are still playing today.

      They once made the mistake of putting those in the premium shop. The butthurt on the forums was insane, I don’t think you could find a topic which didn’t mention the word ‘lawsuit’. It’s since then other packages (like the WoWs) mention the words ‘exclusive for one year’ instead of just ‘exclusive’…

        I know about that “4 hours of ZOMG” moment… that’s how I bought the Panzer V/IV – and when I decided to buy the Mutant while driving 20 minutes to my office, I logged in from work, and they were gone. I’ve been advocating for a “Statute of limitations” ever since, since there was absolutely nothing in writing about their exclusivity – and I’m fairly certain that even verbal agreements (even on video) can only hold so much legal binding without even a simple handshake with the recipient party (which is a couple thousand people who aren’t even playing the game any more or care about something they bought 5 years ago and quit playing 4 years ago).

      • Shade01982 says:

        That kind of depends on the country. In the Netherlands verbal agreements have the exact same amount of legal binding as written agreements. And all agreements are 100% binding as long as they don’t break any laws (law trump contract, a contract is void if it does not adhere to the law). Problem with verbal contracts is they are a lot harder to hold up in court unless you have trustworthy witnesses.

        But I digress. I had the same idea you had. I saw the packages and was thinking about it. But by the time I decided, they were already gone…

    Stop whining and don’t waste a single dollar on this game. Play for free, who cares about a useless tank? You just need to register on tournaments, earn gold while you have fun, and buy ingame premiums at most. They don’t give a shit about you, because no matter what, you keep throwing your money to them. I’ve never spent a dime and I have FCM, T34, IS6, 907, FV4202, SU-122-44, SU100Y, etc… Actually I have 25k gold unspent too. Last tournament (I don’t remember the name), we earned 10k gold and a Cromwell B, and we didn’t even had good results. USE YOUR REAL MONEY ON REAL WORLD, NOT PIXELS.

    Hello THE_GRIM_REAPER007.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Eu servers and Na servers are different in content that way there are some different events and promotions.

    We are sorry that there is some promotion that you like in NA server and it is not available on EU server.

    If you like there is always option to start play on Na servers emoticon smile

    If you have any other questions, please contact us.

    Best regards.
