Okay so I got an in-game message about obtaining a special Graf Spee flag for my Graf Spee for FREE. Yup. Free. I clicked on the link, it opened a browser window. I copy/pasted the link into a text editor to review it, to ensure I wasn't getting spoofed. It looked legit. Took me less than a minute. 

 

I sign in via the browser window, go to the premium shop and I'm told "This item is no longer available." 

 

What?! 

 

I immediately went to my account control and changed my password. I doubt anyone can hack into the game and put a message up like that to obtain a userid/password but ya just never know.

 

If this was/is legit - explain yourself WoWS/WG. What's the big deal taking me to a browser window, having me sign in only to tell me it's not available? 

tia fyc.

Its' a promo plug for buying premium stuff. WG targets premium ship owners with individually tailored offers, especially if you have not bought premium stuff for a while, even small stuff like flags or doubloons. I got one for a flag for Hood. Kept my money in my wallet!

I got an offer for the Oleg's flag too:

I'm good on credits, and the doubloons and premium time separately are about $12 total. Doesn't really seem worth the $19 for the flag bundle.

I finally got one of the bundle offers this evening and now understand what they are.  The offer mentioned having missed out on buying the ultimate bundle, so I think the bundle adds the extra stuff included in the ultimate bundle.

 

On another note, I seem to remember there were some ads that were being spammed a few months ago by a third-party offering various items that was was a scam.  there was also a bug in the offers last week that took you to a Page not Found Error.

It is mainly for the bling of the flag.  That type of stuff does appeal to many people and is a money maker for many MMOGs.

I think once you are logged into the shop it's under the specials tab.

Yep.  The various 'special in-game offers' players have been getting have been for different ships, but it does seem to be the 'fully loaded' or 'ultimate' part of a premium ship they already have (but not always).  The link to the offers are bugged, but if you go to the premium shop under 'specials' within the temporary time frame, you should see it available there.  There have been many threads on these offers.  They are legit, but the in game link is busted.

Well let me say I'm impressed... nay nay... bowled over. I finally get a special, limited offer from the game (seems like six months or longer since the last go-round) and the link's busted. Heck - I wasn't sure if it was legit, especially when the link returned item no longer available. 

 

This was supposed to be free... seriously, they do need to learn how to deal things out to the players. Borked/broken links do not inspire confidence. Nor does offering something you no longer have.

Still feel a bit snargled since they promoted something that wasn't available. Do hope they get that straightened out.
