Yeah, but who in his right mind would want to reward Wargaming for this patch?

Any penny spend will just confirm them in their believe that they created a marvelous event for all players to celebrate.

How to even complete the first one, without this cruiser, when the only completion criteria for "Holidays right ahead" is doing it in this ship? =)

Those who don't like being told by others on what to do with their earned money?

The Puerto Rico event  is the single most blatant cash-grab event i have ever experienced, i have played War Thunder and World Of Tanks and i know what a cash-grab is. The missions are RIDICIOLOUSLY hard and normal people cannot ever hope to complete them, while still enjoying the game, You are ruining your own game and destroying its player base with the fact that you can "just buy it" for 54K DOUBLOONS; ARE YOU MAD? its over 150 EUROS FOR A SINGEL SHIP.! The containers were risky enough, but this just shows that WG has no connection to their community and its playerbase with this awful event. JUST GIVE US THE SHIP AS A GIFT, IT IS CHRISTMAS PEOPLE! We put up with the games normal BS and then this..

I have to admit it seems like you have set a new precedent by insisting players have to buy a premium ship before they can play any of the the combat missions in game. I hope you rethink this policy, especially as it's part of the Christmas events. Even Scrooge would blush in embarrassment at this one guys. C'mon Wargaming make this the last mission instead of the first and give us a choice.

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all from an old Submariner.

Shame on you WG for this upgrade. Dont use words like "simple" in your descriptions, its insulting. Its clear this is a money grab upgrade on your part.

Well, they had this model before where you had to first get the ship, then do the missions - but those times, you could get those ships a lot easier than Gorizia is now. And of course it was a dirty cash grab model of mission design then, too.

 

The real shame is that WG apparently can't make content people may want to spend money on and instead make content to make people feel like they have to spend money on...

Its sad that we can now see the corporate WG move on monetization of WoWs. It was this agressive monetization pushing that killed WoT.

simple my underpants, what good is it with this stuff if you have to build it.. spent hours (which I dont have) spent money (which I prefer spending on saving for my kids education).

 

This should be do-able for all types of players not just the elite. 

 

Im not spending more time or money on this, if that is gonna keep me from getting "presents" (which aint free since im paying for it anyway) then so be it. I thought the game has changed and improved since before my lil break..

 

Oh well its still fun to shoot n sink ships..but thats it.

 

sorry not ranting, just getting it off my chest :)

 

 

ps: To get the Gorizia you need to complete the first 3 levels and then you need an crap ship (Gorizia) to complete more levels.. sorry I prefer my North Carolina or Iowa over any ship. :)

You brainless morons don't learn anything from these gamble lootbox practices do you? As long as there are people buying this crap, they'll continue to do it. It already happened in so many other games and people still fall for it. They're playing on human emotions and it's [edited]disgusting. Just. stop. buying. this. crap.

Hi!  I must congratulate you on captains logbook now we poor players can see what are we missing.  It would be nice if you would help us to acquire items we are missing in bundles (as you did with black flags and patches) or in special captains containers containing random 2 or 3 flags and patches.  It should be like in collections player should have an option to exchange duplicate flags and paches for missing ones at the rate of 5 to 1.

Best, Tomislav

Had a years' premium from the Christmas sales for several years now for WOT/ WOWS; but never again I'm afraid. Your recent track record WG of 'events', along with the sword of Damocles otherwise known as submarines - just too much.

If you ask me  I think it isn't smart to buy Santa crates if you don't have all the lower tier ships.

Buy a Ship to do the directives. Then they make that ship an Italian SAP thrower, No way paying for that then.                                            Next offer I see is 360 days premium mmm after all these antics and more on the horizon with the training centre and there are some warship games released in 2020 can I see myself still playing in 12 months time I think I'll hold off buying anything for now..

Sad really as I enjoy playing and  watching the CC's vids that's if there is any CC's left.

5. Profit (500 dubloons and 30 days of premium time extra)

Once they have you trapped for a year, why they should care about making fun events instead of money grabs like PR.

 

In short, PR event = NOT FUN =No money spent.
