WG, your practices are getting out of hand -- those of us with prime already have the T4 Dante yet we're being forced to buy it again in order to utilize our tokens effectively?  This is almost as bad as getting credits for our T6 premium we already owned earlier this month.

Examine customer support for ship reclaiming. If you owned a ship you sold or disposed of in your account's history you are entitled to reclaim that ship ONE PER MONTH for a fixed amoutn of credits (Usually to maybe 16 to 20 million credit fee, you will be told how much it will cost with fee 10% and you will be notified if you dont possess enough to finish the ticket.)

Yeah, it is irritating and I think the Prime thing happened after the early access was set up to go.

It is like rewrapping a Christmas gift and giving it back to the person you got it from.

It is the Wargaming way maybe that is how it is done in Russia.

More like opening a present and getting credits, which is what you get.

You got free credits for it if you already have it, almost a million i think is what i got, so atleast they give you something for it.

Give a wows player something for free and they will call you greedy for not giving them more stuff for free.

There's nothing free in this game.   Having prime isn't free, earning tokens of value to use them for anything isn't free.  Trading your time for something doesn't make it free, it makes it earned.

So you're one of those people that only plays because you're "paid" with loot then.

I have been an Amazon Prime member for a while.  Eventually, WoWS partnered with Twitch, and I found out since I was an Amazon Prime member, I could also sign up for Twitch Prime.  It was a free bonus for my Amazon Prime membership.

Would you have played World of Warships if they didn't have missions and currencies that you could get rewards with?  If so, you admit you would be playing, anyway.  So those mission rewards ARE free.

huh?  You play because of the meager rewards and consider it pay?  Interesting.  I was simply pointing out nothing is free, especially in the game.

I'd probably play it half as much if it weren't for the meager compensation doled out to attempt to keep server numbers up.  I typically stick to competitive events where payout is substantially higher.  Playing randoms just cuz is just too much work.

So that's why you're here on the forum, you're asking for a pay raise. You feel that you're entitled to more compensation to play this game.

You misunderstood the OP.

1st, if you already had Anshan and earned it again via dockyard event, you received 5.5 million credits.

2ns, if you had Prime gaming,  you already had the T4 Italian battleship.

Yet, to get to the t5, you still HAD TO BUY T4 BUNDLE FIRST...

No compensation and no refund of tokens....

Getting the ship from prime was just early access nothing more. It's not meant to allow you to get further in the event than non prime players.

no, "getting further in the game" is not the point. They are talking about refund for a ship that you already have (through one way or another). Lets say I already had Makarov (from elsewhere), and a container with Makarov dropped, you would get a compensation in doubloons. OR if I already have, idk... Alaska, and than bought the Admiral bundle because I wanted the flag for it (hypothetically). I would get all the "fluff" such as paints and the napkins :Smile_veryhappy: the flag, but I would also receive doubloons back for already having the ship itself.

In this case we already had the ship (regardless of how we obtained it), yet there wasn't any "refund" for the ship. It does suck. someone mentioned rewrapping the gift. Well IMO a better analogy is...

You get the gift, open it and use it, than take it to the store who rewraps it for you, so you again take it home to unwrap the same gift a second time.

Edit: Same with the temporary new year campaigns we just had. I had some ships that were awarded as rewards, and got the compensation for them.

But your gaming time has zero value. It's like trading farts for unicorns.

You're not buying a ship you own, you're buying a bundle you do not own. The ship is merely part of the bundle.

Based on my reading of the offer, the ship wasn't the "gift", EARLY ACCESS to the ship was the "gift". 

..and anybody that believes that playing a video game for fun is work, doesn't understand what work really is.
