  5. x5 for one battle per day is nothing special, so I wont make facebook account just for that, BUT if you will give whole day of x5 experience, not just first battle, then I would make 100 accounts to like this idea :P

  6. You all say its not alot, but with a 5x for the first battle I can make around 50k across all tanks...

  7. Once you reached your goal in the tree all xp related events are useless. Of course if your goal is to get all tanks in all trees it'll help. I'm settled with the german tree and after 6.6 there's nothing todo than to wait for the german TDs. A lot of XP will be collected until then. Afterwards there will only be premium tanks or other nations.

    Make up something new.

  8. why only one day? why not whole week or month?

    ReplyDelete
  9. It is all a matter of revenue... One day of 5x xp for the first battle is absolutely uninteresting. Make an offer I can't resist to create a facebook account...:)

    But as always 5x xp for one day is already set in stone, so there will be no adjustment...:(

  11. Giving us loyal player a 1 week of X5 would really make us very happy and we'll be happy to have 1 week premium for that.. I hope it would be 1 week of fun..

    ReplyDelete
  12. just in the 1 first battle? meh.

    ReplyDelete
  13. LOL, one day of 5x instead of 2x for the first win is not worth spamming my friends. Sorry guys, you need to do better than that.

  14. You all say its not alot, but with a 5x for the first battle I can make around 50k across all tanks...

    Smart advertising...

    Agreed you have to use gold to convert that 50k to free EXP.

    Smart

  15. x5 xp for one battle that's a win is better than nothing I guess, but nowhere near motivating to spam my friends either. nice try though..lmao.

    start getting serious with gifts like other mmo's, maybe then you'll attract more support.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's quite a lot you're asking for very little reward. Either make it a weekend or have the whole day be 2x, or something. You're asking us to promote you for free, after all.

    Which raises the question "Monday in which time zone" :)

    Pardon my inner geek, but I love these sort of stats and facts. I'd love to see you blog a bunch of these fun tidbits some time in the future if you have some time.

    Thanks a bunch.

  18. x5 better than nothing, but for casual players it would be a feature to bring such things more often or frequent.
    Or make a premium feature for more exps. For real casuals your premium isnt very interessting.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would take a 48-hour 2x(all) weekend over a single day of 5x for the first win, but I suppose it's better than nothing.

    A: UTC timezone, if you are interested. And this applies to both EU and US servers.

  21. Sorry but 5x to spam too little to ever think to spam friend list.

  22. @all Anonymous

    Please keep in mind that WoT has no obligation towards you, whatsoever.
    Therefore this is a nice gesture, period.

    I am seriously annoyed by the display of appropriated rights and demands of a lot of people.

    @Overlord, please accept my apologies for some of my fellow gamers, and my gratitude for this nice free game. Also towards the rest of the team.

    My biggest turn-off was the impossibility to play with friends, however this is addressed to in V 0.6.6. as I just discovered.
    So for the moment I have nothing to wish for.

    Best regards,

  23. Does this mean that the 5x will replace the current 2x for each day? Will this be forever or just for one day?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Q: yup, good question, Overlord, it will be forever, so x5 experience replace current x2 exp, if we click "like" ? In this case, i create facebook account for it... or if not, i dont do it, coz i think it is too little, once x5 exp.

    Please keep in mind they're asking us to advertise for them, for FREE. Out of our own personal time. For each new player we bring in, there is the potential for that player to spend $50-$1000 on the game. I know some who have spent 2k in real money on WoT.

    If they want us to jump through hoops for their benefit, guess what? They just became obligated. If they can't cut a deal better than making one of our 2x matches a 5x, then they will get zippo from us. Getting a 5x instead of a 2x is, what? About 500-3k xp on that tank, depending on various factors? So we get them potentially thousands of dollars, and in return WE get about 1% towards our next tank on that line.

    They know it's a ripoff. It's a good marketing decision because they get little know-nothings to run off and spam their friends, bringing in more *actual* money, while they toss you bread crumbs. Virtual bread crumbs, even.

    So, agreeing with the other posters... No, we aren't stupid. Most of us, anyway. You're trying to run a business, and if you want more business, you're going to have to do better than that when you cut a deal with your clients - especially such an obviously slated one.

  26. Wow poster above must be a self entitled douchebag irl

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sry Overlord i would never use Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  28. mmmmmm i think poster above has a real point. its addictive . and the company is trying to suck every penny out of people nothing is enough. i bought 60,- euro in gold and i will buy a lowe this week for the credits. so that will be 120,- i'll spend. i never ever in my whole life spend so much on a game. thing is you only get a lowe not 10 extra slots not a 5 month premium to go with it, its just ridiculous. i mean really enough is enough. a 120,- spend should at least open every single thing in a game up. at the very least you should get a slot for every tank out there in those trees.

    floris.

  29. why not make x5 exp, per 1st win in battle every after 1 hour , 3 hours, or 5 hours interval per battle.

    depend on time interval u decide?

    example:

    at 8:00 hours u have your first battle won with your panther 2 u get x5 exp, then after an hour if u have a battle won with panther 2 u get another x5 exp.

  30. "We guarantee to give each player experience rate increased 5 times for the first battle on American and European World of Tanks servers."

    Its a nice offer if you take the 2 seconds to do it your self but not worth advertising on a personal level.

    1) Is this 5x Exp fist battle or first Win with each tank as per Daily Double ?
    2) Does it Stack with the Daily double or replace it should your first match of the day be a win?
    3) Is the 5x Exp for the first battle a one day occasion or will it be over an extended period of time ?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Overlord I know this is not the right place to ask but have you got any idea when will the retail version hit the stores here in Europe?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Let dev know how they are beloved outside of Russia

    ReplyDelete
  33. OH WOW

    ONE battle you get 5x exp per tank

    fuck you guys, I'm so fucking close to uninstalling this train wreck of a game

    WORLD OF GRIND

    ReplyDelete
  34. You want me to expose my friends to this POS and give you guys free advertising/exposure? For 5X XP ROTF LMAO

    How about just work on the game and fix some of the stupid shit and earn it like other games. You could start with the STUPID spot system and SLOW xp grind. Don't make people play SHIT TANKS because they just bought them, new tanks should come with a gun that's in that tier.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Until this game stop being biased and Russia patriotic, a lot of us ain't going to do sh*t for WoT.

    Like my entire clan, we'll all stop buying premium from now on and it seems several EU and US clans are going the same way.

    And I don't agree with UltraPulse's "..WoT has no obligation towards you..", of course they do. Most of us are PAYING customers. Without us there's no such thing as WoT. We pay for their salerys you numb nuts. ;D

    The final nail in the WoT coffin will probably come in 24hrs or so. Did they uphold their promise to the E-series, or did they decide to go with the über nerfed test3 patch. I heard they decided to yet again nerf the E-series down to not be competitive with the Russian tanks and if that is the case, I'm guessing a huge $ loss for the WoT team this time.

    And on the subject, one game x5 for spamming, that's not much of an offer in any case. :)

  36. "The day World of Tanks Facebook Page has 200,000 likes ..."

    sure, and that after the horrible 6.6 patch notes ... no comment, hope WG have to wait for their likes until 2020 ...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hehe so much crymachine lol. Make russian tanks if you think they are so OP. None will stop you to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Anonymous, you can whine all you want, but in the end of the day, the game is free.
    You choose to pay for it as it is, or not.
    You choose to like it on facebook, or not.

    You are not forced to do so, just rewarded a little for it.

    If you think the game is shit, why do you stick around and pay for it? (and call me a numb nut for just enjoying it for free.)

    ReplyDelete
  39. How about stacking the 5x with the 2x so it becomes like 10x then even for one battle it would be worth it ... But u guys also have to know that with their b-day coming up they might be giving us free stuff so...

    ReplyDelete
  40. 5X xp for the first battle of the day is relatively useless, really, for an event prize. If it was 2X XP all day long, 5X on the first win, then that would be something special. But this? Meh... to be honest.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yea this is all a total scam for free marketing on WoT's part, using it's fan base to spam their friends to play a game that is (blatantly)biased toward one nation. To only get ONE game of 5x xp, it better be for a few days or it's not worth even "liking" the page. Then bugging the hell out of your friends to get them to "like" that page, even if they don't play. It just makes you look like a tool.

    ReplyDelete
  42. 200,000 likes... not gonna happen so soon. maybe next year

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think a single 5X replacing the 2X is a gift that well resembles a game celebrating a year after which they haven't accomplished anything except getting some money from idiots who keep paying for improvements that never come.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You guys are all just trolls that have nothing better to do than complain about the 5x xp.

    Well they dont need to give you anything!, but they are! be thankful for once and maybe they will continue to give you nice gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yeah they dont need to give us anything. But the most are paying for this. WG need to give us a little bit sometimes, because they need us to pay for the expensive gold

    ReplyDelete
  46. Awesome, so many rewards, contests and extra things ( ^__^)

    New players can catch up a bit too =D
