Hiding missions in release notes

I was just watching flambass on twitch and saw him playing with overchkin captain. Ok - i'm an idiot for missing it, but why on earth were the ovechkin missions not available unless you clicked on a link from the release notes. Can only assume he'll turn up as a commander in the premium shop at some point - and this is why it was buried.

 

I mean what comes next - 1000 doubloons to anybody that gets to the bottom of the next set of updated terms & conditions?

Visit forum more often. Overjerkkin was a celebrity here at some point.

there were multiple separate news articles about the whole thing, most of which even got bumped a few times. so, in conclusion, see above...

Bumped if you happen to be in the forums regularly, and looking in the right forum. And what % of WOWS players visit the forum, or properly read the release notes? Lots of people missing out.

Nah,  got that one - and I certainly don't remember having to click on link to activate it - although happy to be proven wrong.

this should be mandatory! And imho every special/discount/event/whatever should be this way, that you have to activate it...

Yeah you are absolutely right..

 

They just recently started doing this click to participate thing. And i genuinely can't figure out why? Maybe because of those some that don't want that kind of content in their game? It used to be a big fuss for some people when ARP was a thing, because "curse those damn weeaboos and their degenerate ideas."

There have been a number of bonus codes available in the last few months - Steam containers, premium for 24 hours and flags and other consumables.

 

Most of these have been posted here in the forum sometimes along with a link to the original news item.

Maybe less wanted. But didn't you have those patches? You had to click on things to get them too. Could be wrong. I click on so many things.

Yes, but should you be a part of the passive, lazy players that do not bother glancing a few seconds on the news, I watch news every day, if there is something, watching the forums if there is codes etc.

Lots of small free stuff you miss. You must decide if you want to pay the prize to miss this or be part of the active group. WG has decided that activity should be rewarded.

 

I will not flame you or anything, just make up your mind which group of players you will belong to in the future as WG will hardly change their stance.

I have certainly missed things in the past, especially the first year of play GNB f.e. I noticed after 2 weeks to my horror and paid my lesson then.

Well, i guess that's me then. 

 

I enjoy playing the game, I've played 10k battles - i'd just expect to see these sorts of notifications "in game", but perhaps i should go and play Tetris, as has been suggested so often in chat.

Yes, you have news in game also now. Sure WG can do better - but they will not. It is the same with spreading stuff on Facebook , reddit etc instead of writing here, in their own forum. No play WOWS, I just think that it is not so much effort in reading the news now and then and there are some interesting articles also.

As I recall, the 'hockey chappie' missions were advertised in game - it was covered in a least one of the news stories.

 

I do agree that the 'click to participate' thing is a pain though; too easy to miss stuff, unless one lives on the forum...
