This month is dedicated to two German wild animals: the Tiger I and the Tiger II. Let’s learn more about them, and enjoy some bonuses with them all the month long!

Full news text


Please note the following change -

Due to some issues, players received 20% extra credits instead of 25% during the beginning of this offer.  As a result, the bonus has been increased to 30% extra credits with the PzKpfw VI Tiger until the 16th October.

Regards

Ectar

So this was not posted yesterday because it was included here and that was good enough then, but now it is not as you make a post today?

Also, the current bonus on the Tiger seems to be 20%?

If it is meant to be 20% (or vice versa), does that mean all previous bonus claims are to be considered a little "off"?

PS.

0.8.0 - just check your game client version....

EDIT - Fixed sometime between fix announcement and this game (was still broken here). - EDIT

I should sue WG, as i almost died when reading that article :D Really, who is writing this stuff? Did they just hire someone off the street of Minsk or something? Unbeliavable.....

BTW, the Tiger with 10,5cm looks gross and rediculous :D I hope i dont meet that in battle, ever.

"Facing the enemy at a 90 degree angle makes it much harder to penetrate your hull."

LOL? It makes it much easier to penetrate it.

Also this:

Ofc this will expose the sides too much and if enemy penetrates then you risk ammo rack.

Its nice to play the Tiger as you should , you know sniping , BUT there is just one problem "That one bounced"!
How can you snipe if you penetration is junk? I hate WG  for this.

Loads of wrong info. :facepalmic:  
Also Tiger I "As you have seen, this tank has quite a boxy hull, making it vulnerable to penetration." With improved vulnerability in 0.8.0 because of buff to sloped armour. :arta:  :Smile_harp:

I was hoping for a discount for these cats, but credit bonus is also nice.

P.S. Wish I had such KT model :Smile_confused:

Crap penetration? The long 88 with its 203 mm of penetration can even hurt tier 9 and 10 tanks if you aim for weakspots.

What? It has some of the best penetration at it's tier. It can penetrate most tanks in game, with very few exceptions. Provided that you don't auto-aim, that is.
