The Mod is a Girl in a Blouse ? 

What's that got to do with things ? :sceptic:

I got my second and then third M3, and a Tetrarch. I don't expect I'll ever play them as I'm not about to spend RareParts to equip anything below tier V. So, meh.

 

The complexity of the event was needless and leaves one with the sense that it was intentionally designed to hide the unlikelihood of acquiring anything you actually wanted.

 

I was quite happy with the 2016 Fair as I was able to play around the gambling element. 2017 was pure gambling, inescapable and in direct contravention of many nation's laws against underage gambling. 

 

I agree with others that we'd spend more if the price was clear and fair. I loath gambling and everything associated with it in real life; I feel the same about it online.


Gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us.

Yeah, I guess. 2016 is when you actually had hope to win a decent tank, now this fakr was pretty much paying for nothing.

Bring back the old blitz fair?

I doubt that 7 tickets chests are rigged. Today i lost more 5000 golds & more 300000 free xp to chase & bet KV-5 ! If i buy it in bundle, it could be cheaper.

Lodge a ticket under the support tab with a screenshot as evidence, and give a detailed description of what your problem is.

Yeah, I guess so. But the fair, you could win much higher tiered premium tanks. But if you wanted the bundle, there’s nothing stopping you.

The fair was good for me. Got 8 premium tanks (tier 6+), which is great considering i'm a f2p player (spent free xp and earned gold).

 

The complaints about the fair are justified, though. The drop rates of any high tier tanks from the standard chests were negligible/non-existent, and so spending tickets on them meant boosters and credits. On the other hand, spending tickets on legendary chests did give out progress points, but if you had a small number of tickets (eg. the 130 tickets that could be received via flags/missions), the progress points would be divided over the offered tanks and chances are the player would get nothing. On the flip side, a substantial number of tickets (around 600) would pretty much guarantee almost all the progress points tanks.

 

In the case of legendary chests, it was a case of all or nothing; and for the standard chests it was just nothing - hardly any middle ground.

Clova - I am still thinking that you cannot pass a Turing test.

I would make an awesome bladerunner.

You never watched BlackAdder (Mr Bean) series ? In one episode his 'manservant' is actually an attractive young woman named "Bob" dressed as a man and thus the reference to wearing a blouse comes up. BlackAdder is rather fond of "Bob"..

Just seeing what users feel about this Fair, and what’s they think WG should change of it.
