Beyond getting the single camo to signify that I was included (opt-in) I have seen exactly bupkis.

It would be nice if WG would sort this dumpster fire out.

Reading is OP.

Meet the criteria above and get the following loot sent to you by Jan. 11:

It's only morning, people are barely getting into the offices, calm down.

I forgot about that one... but yeah.... Haven't seen anything. But then I'm not even sure if I used 20 required camos or not... Pretty sure that I did.

Still not a particularly good reason for why this could not be automated.  Also, if they weren't going to give them before Jan. 11 they should have said "On Jan. 11" not "by".

Hasn't it always been EOD?

Of course, they sometimes miss some people that completed these things.

I think the idea was that they would start work on them, but everyone should have it by EOB on Jan 11th. That is how it has worked in the past. Why it was not automated is unknown. I would speculate that it was a NA late addition, so was not coded, but that is only a WAG.

True story.

Still waiting to see if the homepage gets updated with any new deals for the weekend.  Several ships have to be very close to release, no?

Doesn't look like any premium ships coming out today.

:Smile_teethhappy: Your title says it all.

Unfortunately it wasn't the best exercise in communication by WG. We'll have to wait a little longer to see if the rewards do indeed come out today. :Smile_Default:

If you can read Spanish or copy and paste some stuff into a translator, you might find that some segments of the WOWs user base have a right fine deal going on.

WG has always been 'By End of Day' on this kinda thing.

Actually, in the world of online gaming (including WG) the term "by"  has always appeared to mean that once the stated day has arrived, the stated objective needs to have been completed.  If a mission has to be done BY January 1st, for example, once the clock ticks over past midnight and the day is now January 1st, it's now too late to work towards the objective.  So while I'm ok giving them "until the end of the day", I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the stated rewards to be in our hands earlier in the day, even at the beginning of the day.  After all, Cyprus and the US are not exactly in the same time zone.  Right now it's just about noon in the eastern US and unless I miss my guess, that means that they're already closing shop in most of Europe.  Friday night.

it didn't exactly give me a warm and cozy feeling to see that the thread linked to by the original News item for this event has been locked, either.

I believe I managed to complete this challenge:
https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/community/yes-to-the-dress/

But I did not get these camo's......did anyone get them?

Got mine about 20 minutes ago so looks like they've started working on them.

Events run by the community staff are often tallied by hand (or manual spreadsheet, at least). That can potentially take a really long time, so yeah, give them a buffer.

Just blew up and when I got back to port, the package was there (the only difference I could confirm was the Tokyo Game Show camo).  Not a very good day for me to be impatient - so apologies to anybody who took my anxiety personally.

That's ok.  I still have enough stuff left to do after completing the P.E.F. campaign yesterday.  Ground out all the steel for T9 and T10, so now it's just the T8 premiums left.  That will take up a decent chunk of time this weekend.
