Enjoy the special!  :bajan:
And for those who can't access the portal - here is the info:

It is time for the real deal. You have grown up to be a veteran commander, and now you can battle with a bigger toy without worrying about every flickering leaf. Wargaming has grown as well. We actually grew up a lot over these last few years, and to celebrate our 15sth anniversary, we have prepared some offers for you. The first of these offers involves bonuses on heavy tanks over the course of two weeks. After all, now the mightiest machines no longer impress you because the time when you used to cautiously drive a small Tier I are long gone. Let’s do some real damage with top tiers all month-long with these Big and Heavy offers!

From Wednesday 1st May 07:10 until Wednesday 15th May 07:00 CEST (GMT+2), this first edition of the Big and Heavy special will give you:
30% discount and 30% increased credits on the following Soviet heavy tanks:
  • Tier VIII   IS-3
  • Tier IX     IS-8
  • Tier X     IS-7
If you want to park these heavy beasts in your garage, it will cost you less. If you already have them, each time you play a battle with them, you will win more money. This offer for lasts two weeks, so be ready to rake in the credits!

There are 9 heavy tank lines. Why can't we get some bonus for other tanks? What about those players who like to play with fast french heavys, or some accurate british ones, or maybe want to try special hull down tactics with americans? Give them some bonus too!

Allready have them, but extra 30 % in credits isn't bad at all :). Have to roll IS-3 more often, haven't played with it 4 a while.

When I was reading it for the first time, I almost expected: "...now the mightiest machines no longer impress you because the time when you used to play them as real heavy tanks without überOP tier X TD guns and heat shells flying all around are long gone..." at least that's my feeling.  :sceptic:
But at least I can now afford full ammorack of APCRs too.   :teethhappy:

Too bad I'm already through both russian heavy lines and sold my IS-7 for being a crap tank.

Would rather like to see all tier9 and tier10 tanks reduced, afterall its the 15th anniversary of Wargaming.net - and if someone is aiming for the IS-3, has already unlocked it, he will profit for the 1st day of the special (and the +30% credits until the 15th), but he surely will not profit from the is-8 discount, unless hes playing his is-3 24/7, which i bet NOBODY will do.
so afterall the use of the special for anyone in the community is very small (up to 2, maybe 2.5 million credits profit) - it would make more sense to either reduce all tier9 and 10s without the additional credits, OR just give us a "normal" event, therefore x5 XP (the increase in smart players - attention sarcasm - is barely noticeable and spreads on both your own and the enemy team) and maybe some other good stuff (reduction of tier8s by 50% and tier9s by 30%) until the next monday.

Wargaming.net's worst special at the moment, not because I won't profit from it, but because a lot of players, that means anyone that is already past the IS-7 line or too far away from it, will not profit at all, and those profit, who do benefit from this special, will be very small compared to other "big" specials like the 2nd anniversary of WoT.
Afterall, it happens to not bother me at all, this special, the only change for me will be a lot of more IS-3s and IS-8s driving around in stock configuration (especially iS-8s, as there will be quite a few who rush towards the IS-8 from their IS-3, may it be with the extensive usage of gold to convert XP, without unlocking the essential BL-9.

Did they actually discount tier 10 tank with 30% although they said it will never happen?
I already have IS-7 so I only benefit from increased credits :D (I don't need IS-3, and certainly don't need that heavy medium tank IS-8).
Since I bought M103 few days ago, only thing I could really benefit from is if they discount french heavies (which they won't).

russian always first. IS7 is the folder tank  used in CW, every body has it, it is the first tank to grind.  why not putting tier X british or french, or chinnese, those are tanks that are still grinding, but IS7 ?¿ come on ??? I really expect not to see IS4 next special.

Did you actually believe they would not do something, just because they said that they wouldnt?
You are registered since 2011, do you actually remember a promise they kept when it was not convenient anymore?
Like only tanks till Korea - hello amx1390 and T-62A, Expert:Country "This will not be removed when new tanks are added" - until it got removed when new tanks were added and so on...

Second part of the special: The other russian heavy line? Or the E-100 line, because the E-100 is only viable with gold, so it makes wg lots of money...
