    Default World of Tanks Promo Code not working...

    [EDIT] Correct Link found at bottom!

    Hiya guys,

    I just tried to use the WoT promo code on the Disc ( by going here [url]https://game.worldoftanks.eu/account/promocode/[/url] ) and it's giving the following error:

    "ATTENTION
    Unable to use promo codes in this event."

    Is this code only for new accounts or am I doing something wrong?

    [EDIT]
    Contacted WoT Support - will keep this updated as soon as I know something.

    [EDIT] Got the following reply:

    Dear Player,

    Thank you for your quick reply. The code you have received is an invite code - when a new user registers in World of Tanks ([url]http://game.worldoftanks.eu/registration/wap[/url]) he may type an invite promo code in the respective box. Then such a user will start the game with the respective goods added to his game account. Unfortunately users who are already playing World of Tanks may not benefit from these codes (unless they decide to create a new account).

    We hope your question is answered and apologize for the misunderstanding due to the lack of informativeness on the issue. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact our team.

    Best regards,

    Hoping this gets fixed, I play a fair bit of WoT and was happy to see a promo code to use. Not so happy that it doesn't work

    There is a problem with the EU server at the moment. Hopefully when it's fixed the codes will work! Check the WoT forums for updates.

    EDIT: No, still not working. Perhaps it's because we get the subscriber edition and we have to wait for general release? No idea otherwise.

    I'm rather disapointed that this is only for new registrations. It would be nice to be rewarded for being a loyal player who has spent money on the game already, rather them promos being used simply to attract new players and their wallets.
