Top of the Tree Update

Hello,

Some of you emailed me asking what had happened to the "Top of the Tree", the EU tier 10 discount will be coming back on the first of March with a new format.

-Instead of a new discount each 2 weeks the European server will be doing only one per month;
-The community (only for those with registered account) will have the power to vote on which vehicle they want to be featured;

  • "The vehicles subject to voting in the polls will be restricted to 1 class per month. This means that, for example, in March you will be able to choose only from Tier X heavy tanks, then in April only tank destroyers or SPGs will be available, and later in May we will put just medium tanks up for a vote, and so forth.The vehicles subject to voting in the polls will be restricted to 1 class per month.

-Players who voted on the winning vehicle will be earning 2 special missions
  • Players who have voted for the vehicle that wins the poll and unlocked the vehicle after the poll has ended, will be given access to the special missions as well.
  • Players who have voted for the vehicle that wins the poll, but have unlocked the vehicle in the past already, or when the poll was still active, will not be eligible for access to the special missions. However, they will still be able to enjoy the discounts on the respective tech line, as well as the Crew XP bonus.
  • Players who have voted for a vehicle that does not win will be able to enjoy the bonuses on the tech tree that won. However, no missions will be unlocked for their accounts. Of course, they will be able to vote again in future polls as well.

Honestly, this is going to be a big load of crap, I went to check the voting poll and I'm so not surprised to see vehicles like IS-7 and E5 on top.

Because cutting the discount variety by half wasnt enough, this voting system will create strategic voting and just discourage players from grinding new tier 10s.

This is a bad, bad idea...

This are my sugestions:
  • Instead of making only class rotation, remove previous voted tanks from roster
  • Hide the F*ing vote amount until conclusion!
What do you think?
