World of Tanks Asia: Holiday Ops fiasco continues

Thanks to DeadArashi for the mail.

So the fiasco on the Asia server regarding the loot boxes not having decorations hasn’t calmed down… Rather, it’s escalated to the point where WG are now blatantly doing false advertising.

https://calendar.worldoftanks.asia/en/2017-11-30/

Here we can see on the advent calendar a new item advertised: the Holiday Ops crates. But in the description it says “Collect all decoration sets” implying that decorations are contained in the crates.

But there’s not. There’s still no warning up on the premium store or on the Holiday Ops that you get directed to from the advent calendar. Unless you hover over the box on the site to see what’s in the box (and continued lack of decorations) WG is leading players to believe that if they purchase the boxes now, they will get decorations… which they won’t.

To make it worse still, upon logging into World of Tanks, players are presented the advent calendar with the same false advertising:

Whether this is intentional or not, this is false advertising or a deceptive business practice and that’s illegal. And we may never know what’s going on because, except for the compensation at the beginning of the event, there have been no updates from WG at all.

      1. There is no server in South Korea. There are 2 servers for the “asia” server. Server 1 is in Singapore and there is a second periphery server based in Australia that until recently only operated at certain times. All South Koreans play on either of these servers.

  1. Well there is no reason to complain though, i bought 10 box and all of them give me avg 150 gold per box (4000 total), more than 15 day premium and pz B2. and the holiday mission refresh every week (~30 box per week) still continuous until now, so you can get lv10 atmosphere with out problem.
    The only thing to complain is hard to get all 4 special camos, that actually make them look special now.
