Dear players,

 

Unfortunately, due to an internal system glitch, many players got a wrong notification about winning our Naval Tour WoWs contest. The winners for the Laptops are:
- pingpong01
- Ramsauer73

 

All winners of this contest are listed here: https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/common/the-grand-naval-tour/

 

We apologize for this mistake and any inconvenience caused by this. Sorry for the mistake.

 

Your World of Warships EU Team

So nice after how most of the players were originally excluded from winning it. WG EU hasn't got better since last year, just changed.

I knew it couldn't be correct when I recieved that message.

That would have been a very good April fools joke.

I guess most of us wouldn't either. We're very sorry about this, this was clearly not our intention to send it out to the wrong players.

In Dutch we have a saying for this: "Iemand blij maken met een dode mus".

It's literal translation would be "To make somebody happy with a dead sparrow" :Smile_teethhappy:

It means as much as "promise somebody something great, which in the end turns out be be worthless or even nothing".

 

I don't think I will live long enough to see you guys host an event or giveaway without a f*ckup :Smile_facepalm:

A very good example of "small mistake severe result".

This will raise the salt level to 9000 considering the very let's say controversial requirements to enter the competition.

I take it lightly and think it is funny though and don't mind, but this could be because i was able to participate (and already knew i didn't win because i checked preemptively). :cap_haloween:

after removing majority of EU countries from this contest...because of some local hazard rules or whatever was excuse...and after selling tons of x-mass presents which are okay, because its not like hazard :cap_yes:

I hope that some good lawer will pick this case and earn laptops for everyone who got this message. I will be then laughing for rest of my life  :cap_haloween:

Give everyone that got the message by mistake a day premium or so (I didn't participate). No skin of WG's back and everyone's happy. :)

According to Sehales on the german forums everyone who recieved the message should by now have recieved a second one with an apology. In addition to that second message five rare premium camos have been added to the affected accounts.

Same. I got this exact message and the 5 camos. The camos look very nice! :Smile_great:

 

Might be Orange Is The New Black, would kinda make sense?

 

It looks like this on my Cleveland.
