Is this event for the EU server only?

·                                 Play any battle type with ships of Tier V and above, with signal flags mounted.

·                                 Every 15 signal flags "spent", you will earn one chance at receiving a prize (30 signals = 2 chances, and so on).

·                                 Prizes are limited to one per account. 

·                                 In total 3,050 winners will be determined at random on the EU server.

I'll assume they meant NA

 

Hey Junostorm - If this event was advertised on the EU - I'd caution against making this assumption - the 4 servers and China have their own promotional activities in addition to the global release coordinated activities.   As such, in the same way that the EU server didn't have a Corgi event this weekend, this event may be for EU only - if the source of the OPs info came from a EU forum or WOWS EU website, this likely only applies to players on the EU server.

Unfortunately, that was in the news article on the NA homepage.

Actually, it came from the in-game's General News. The link next to your name. I only play on the NA server.

i see - I was looking at a early unrefreshed homepage before this notice was posted - you're right - this probably falls into the 5 server coordination/transation issues that often happen.

Apparently the event happened last month  on the EU server, I suspect it is a copy paste issue. I run no less than 5 signals per battle and sometimes all 8. I don't have much luck at hat picking though.

Yeah I noticed it too. I assume it's a typo, but in the grand scheme of things: meh. Going through 100 flags in a weekend is nothing, so my behavior isn't gona change either way, and 3050 winners is a small pool anyway so I'm not gona sweat on this.

Yeah, it's normal. WGNA just takes  WGEU's work and copy paste it on their website. 

Look no further than some of the announcements for the KOTS event that only listed EU matches and EU times...

Well.... the office is moving so.... I am thrilled we get to mirror EU rather than just have a dry spell.

also is the drawing immediate? or only after 2 days of play? say you spent 15x10 flags, you rolled 10 times at the end? but the total number of winners are fixed, so how exactly does that work? I guess can't be rolled real time otherwise those played early will be the winners...

PS, my guess is it has to be rolled at the end of the event, then top 3050 rolls win

and

before you get too excited, only 50 roma will be rewarded, and 3000 type 6 camo (each win 10)...

NA Server

Hey Junostorm - As I responded to Ricky Racer, did not know the source of the OP’s comment & the notice was posted on the NA server later today than when I originally looked at the homepage of the NA website.   Agree this promo is suffering from some of the copy paste & translation issues that WG sometimes has in coordinating its regions.

Thanks for the clarifications all. I was just curious.
