Oh boy, more hoops to jump through. And this time around, no compensation for people who already own the ships AND no baseline reward for completing the mission?

If you already have the ships, then why would you try and compete? You would just be taking a free ship away from a player with none of them. And I'm pretty sure its stuff like post a screenshot of a battle where you did X on social media or smth. Like last year with the other giveaway.

They actually aren't giving compensation, they're just redrawing so if you already have all these ships this event is Not Applicable for you.

Previous giveaways (for example the weekly forum screenshot contest that Hapa used to run) had both basic prizes for submitting a screenshot to the contest, and also a chance to win one of a smaller number of larger prizes. People who already had the ships would submit screenshots for the guaranteed small prize, and if they happened to get picked, they'd win the ship's value in doubloons.

If these challenges are social media screenshot contests of a similar nature, the no-duplicate-compensation rule combined with the no baseline prize would hinder participation. Anybody who has the ship (or doesn't really want that particular ship) has literally no reason to participate. That's really poor design for this kind of event, since the objective of social media contests is generally to get people to generate buzz about your media property.

So you are not going to have in game missions for such a possibility of free ships? I guess I will not be a winner since I don't believe in Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Why you punishing us Wargaming if we don't use those programs?

The only times I've used the 3 was for the giveaways last year. I just did the screenshots, wrote the things, and was done with it. Haven't touched it since. Hope I remember the passwords...

Indefinitely removed, is so vague. Many other games say the same thing yet a month later they on sale again.

Just seams like a cash grab to me.

As for winning a ship it's also very vague on how many winners. The way it says right now is 1 winner a day.

I don't want to "take anything away" from another player BUT why shouldn't I have the same chance as they do at winning something? So I don't get the ship but I could get the ship's Doubloon value as compensation. WG is already giving away a set $$$ value so what does it matter if it is the ship or doubloons.

It is ridiculous the way WG thinks this is OK and not a slight against those of us with the ships already. It's like watching a Twitch Stream and getting drawn for a ship but then not awarded it (compensation) because you have it already. WG needs to stop doing these things for a select few. I should have the same chance to win the prize as any other player if I watch the stream, do the mission, or whatever it is. 

This (below) is one of the most asinine statements I have seen WG make in a long time. Every player is NOT being given a fair chance. Many of us are excluded. But that is what WG does best; exclude people from one thing or another. They can't grasp the concept that every player/customer matters at all times.

  • To give every player a fair chance at winning a new ship, no alternative compensation will be issued for players who won a ship they already have. Another winner will be redrawn instead.

This is only for people on a social media platform.  You say "every player a fair chance to win".   How will someone like me win if we don't do the "facetwittegram" thing?

 

thank you

Actually we have no idea if there are any rewards beyond the ships because they haven't told us what we have to do to complete the missions. The only ones I have any interest in are the Haida because it is a historical ship and the Lenin because I am a BB player.

Looks like a psychology move.
Instead of telling folks these ships are going away...   make a contest out of it.  Make folks work towards something -- then fail.
Then they might be more interested in buying one.

I bought the Lowenhardt the moment they said it was going away.  I now have as many premium German CVs as I do US and IJN combined.

And on top of that, assuming NA updates on Wednesday as expected, the drawings for all but the first two will take place after they’re no longer available to purchase. So if you want the ship you have to buy it before you know if you’ve won, and then if you end up winning you don’t get anything because you’ve already bought it before.

I miss those contests.

I’ve entered a couple on Discord and even sponsored one. The only downside was, I only have a NA account. So it was only available for NA server members.

From Devblog:CHANGES IN AVAILABILITY OF SEVERAL SHIPS

If you don't use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you're already a winner.
