I'm sure a fair amount of us remember last year's party celebrating the game's release. At least those of us who didn't convince me that they were sailing while intoxicated. But if you'll recall, there was a huge event with special awards and the like with the great bonus of Dragon flags for every tier X and 1000 games. However, considering that we've yet to hear any announcements despite the anniversary being on Sunday, I'm guessing that things won't raise the roof quite as much. Which is kind of a pity since I really enjoyed figuring out the secret achievements. I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like this party is going to be a lot quieter this time around.

I wouldn't expect too much. Their trend this past year has been to limit rewards. Even weekend missions are now win capped, adding to the trend of weekday win capped missions that has been in place since spring. I think they are slowly trying to ween the playerbase off of in-game rewards and more towards the premium store.

WG seems afraid to give stuff away anymore....Are they really expecting to make enough money off Camo to be worth the negative blow back of poor event rewards? Project-R was a great event, and gave away 13k Kami-R's and lots of nice stuff. Project-X? They won't even post the exact numbers, but I'll bet it was less than 500 Kami-R's given out, and a whole lot less other goodies.

Signals and consumables used to be handed out by the ton, with no limit in holiday special events. Now they hand them out with an eyedropper and by a limited amount per day etc. I guess they could see consumables as a possible income stream, since they can be bought with dubloons (And are by default) but what about signals?

And is this cut down on the free stuff really helping the game? Numbers don't seem to reflect that, in fact we are barely treading water, with new players coming in due to all the advertising...what does that say about retention issues?

To be fair, the free tanks were ok at the outset of Wot (tetrarch, Bt-7 (A), British Light Mk. V 1C, US T1 E 6) but many freebies since then are garbage.  Same with WoWP.  Give away GOOD stuff.  Not crap.  Good stuff will keep people in game and make new sign ons wait for next round/ anniv. of give aways.  Give away nothing or useless crap nnd people will leave in dribs and drabs

I'd like to see them reward players who have been playing regularly since the game release with nicer gifts. Perhaps a tier system based on how long you have played with minimum games played. Everyone gets something but the regulars get recognized. (cough, free Alabama, cough cough.......)

I could get behind something like that. They did that last year with dragon flags based on games played and number of T10 ships.

 Appreciation rewards are nice, based upon battles or ships at port, or amount of permanent camos you have,  etc   but yeah WG-NA have cheapened out a lot recently, I am not expecting something spectacular.

Dream on.  I paid good money for my Alabama.  They're not going to give it away to freeloaders.

 

You'll get the opportunity to own the SoDak at some point though, so just bide your time.

If Bernie Sanders were elected you would have had to share your Alabama with us freeloader :-p

I got to meet the Original Banana Splits in 1969 at Kings Island!  Met Mrs. Johnny Bench and Pete Rose as well.

 Well, Alabama is now in the Supercontainer ship roster :)   ( one can just keep on dreaming to get it that way)

LOL good thing that will never happen!

 

I would rent her out though.  We need an "Air BB" rental service for battleships you're not playing at the moment.

Five or ten gold per use.... good idea but it won't happen because WG doesn't benefit
