    " WG has mentioned when patches are scheduled to drop. " They only published that in a news article less than 24 hours before the patch hit.

    Yes, and as I said, there was less than 24 hours notice of the patch dropping. Thus, players had a tiny window to spend tokens earned on that last day.

    I guess you didn't read any of the prior posts. Players received tokens AFTER THE END OF THE EVENT, at the server reset. Thus, they were able to spend tokens AFTER THE END OF THE EVENT . Players can't spend tokens before they received them. So the fact that the end date of the event was published is irrelevant. The only relevant date was the date the patch would drop. There was less than 24 hours notice for that.

    Everyone knew the event was ending. That is not the point. The end of the event was not the end of token utility, so, citing that date is missing the point.

    You got 2 points the moment you chose not to change teams. You didn't get the last 3 points till the end of that days event, at the same time you got the container. " all of yesterday." Yes, and only 24 hours is a tiny amount of time. Not everyone logs in every single day. It was less than 24 hours notice.

    OMG, Really, could you at least attempt to read the points I am making. You just keep recycling the same points, that don't even respond to the points I am making. The event ending date was obvious, and also NOT RELEVANT. That is not the end date of token availability. Why do you keep citing the date the event ended? What part of this point don't you comprehend? There is ONLY ONE relevant date, the date the patch would hit. There was only 24 hour notice of the patch.

    24 hours is not 'plenty' of notice. If you think 24 hours is plenty, how many hours notice would be not enough, by your definition. 1 hour? You, yet again, cite end of the event. What don't you comprehend about the fact that the event ending is not a relevant data point? I am talking about the end of token availability. NOT the end of the event. I never, ever indicated that I didn't know when the event was ending. So your repeated insults implying I was ignorant and not reading the news, completely miss the mark.

    Because you don't get your last 3 loyalty points until AFTER the last days event was over. You think everyone should wake up at 3am (or whatever timezone), and quickly spend their tokens just in case WG suddenly decides to delete them?

    " ALL over this thread to when the event was ending" That is NOT the deadline for spending tokens. Thus, its not the relevant data point. Event ending is not the same as the last chance to spend tokens. "You are trying to say that it was only 24 hours, when there were multiple mentions of spending your tokens before the next patch. " Yes, and there was only around a 24 hour window to do that. Players received their last tokens on the 21st, after the last server reset. The patch hit the 22nd. The notice about the patch hitting was less than 24 hours before the patch hit. "to find out what is going on. Don't read it, then don't complain when you do not know." Yes, and the news items don't have the pertinent information, until the last 24 hours. " "For stuff you got for free? Sure. For those crates he bought with money? No." What Percentage of players do you think log in on the average tuesday. 5%, 10%? This idea that 24 hours is enough, really fails to grasp what the vast majority of players actually do. " There were plenty of notifications, that were IN GAME as well, for when the event was ending "

    For about the 5th time. The event ending was NOT the deadline to spend tokens. You are citing an irrelevant data point.

    Read my prior reply. There was only 24 HOUR window of notification of the patch hitting. People didn't assume they would have only a 24 hour window to act, as that is ridiculous. "you care how I spend my time on the forum? How does my post count affect anything, " I am not saying anything negative about your post count. My point is, you have an abnormal perceptive, since you live on the forums. You don't represent most players. Something that is obvious to you, is not obvious to most people. I am sure you are very helpful for people in general. "Sorry, no sympathy for those that could have kept up " You really think a 24 hour action window is reasonable, for a multi week event?

    Players didn't get their last tokens till the 21st. There was only around a 24 HOUR window. They didn't announce the patch date till less that 24 hours before it hit. That is TINY window of time. You really think its reasonable that players have to check the news every 12 hours just to make sure. Especially after a grind mission, where players, you know, often take a day off playing. Its ridiculous, Why didn't they just leave them in the arsenal for 1 extra patch. Its not exactly a programming problem.

    :"you hovered over the team icon you saw the end date": And as I previously posted, that was not USEFUL information. - You don't get your the last of your tokens till AFTER the end date. - The end date was NOT the end of being able to spend tokens. You are citing a misleading data point. "As far as buying crates and not getting to use them...I'm again having to ask why would you buy crates and let them sit in your inventory unopened?" Well, that was not me. BUT, in my case, I didn't know how many tokens I would have till the event was over. Thus, I could not make intelligent buying decisions till the last second. eg, I didn't always get the option to switch sides. So, I would not know if I would get 3 or 5 tokens the last day. Since I was at 45 points for one nation, that made a massive difference My intent was to, if I had enough tokens, buy a couple of crates and get an extra permanent camo. For some mysterious reason, WG removed the crates from the store 1-2 days PRIOR to the event ending. Thus, I lost that chance, and they lost sales.

    What % of players do you think know there is a 4 week cycle? What, software patches are always on an exact cycle? Its a silly thing to assume people will know. WOT publishes patch dates 1-2 weeks ahead of time. They don't announce then drop a patch within 24 hours, on the basis that 'people should have just known' " 5,752 posts " " 6,390 battles " You apparently spend as much time on the forums as actually playing. 99% of players don't do that. Something that is obvious to you, is not obvious to normal players.

    The many players who were affected could have bought camo's, which are far more useful to many players than credits. "Why would you not spend them on the last day of the event?" Because players didn't get the last of their tokens till AFTER the last day of the event. There was a TINY window of time before the patch dropped. All you folks responding with 'read the end of date info', have failed to comprehend. People received tokens at the END of the event, at the server reset, you can't spend them before receiving them. Saying 'you should have known you had to do it before the patch', misses the point. We didn't know WHEN the patch was arriving. ritastatusreport even has a warning up for EU players so they don't suffer the same fate as NA players.
