Because you trusted wargaming (not to discount tier10s), so you got what you deserve (and hopefully learn from it).

Nope

Not if you go on the article, it clearly states on the article that those 3 tanks are the ones on special between the 1st of May and the 15th of May.  There will be another half-way through the month.  Though I hope for a wider selection than just 1 line of heavies personally.

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!

Woah woah woah.... Not so long ago we were all wrong for not discounting tier 10 or 9, and minute we do, we're doing it wrong? Now I know all nations or having  heavies, mediums and TD's all at once would be awesome, but that's a pretty substantial discount and event, especially when it's not been done before. Lets walk before we can run and see how this month goes and then we can go for there.  Yes other nations would be good, but no matter what nation we started with people would ask for something different. This is something really awesome, the first time a tier 9 and 10 tank is discounted AND on increased credits. No other server has done that before and if you notice it's cross region, we're all doing it (you know, all specials should be the same as people were requesting not so long ago  :blinky: ).

Specials/bonuses shouldn't be taken for granted, they're a boost to your normal play and for some this is pretty awesome. They're never always going to suit everyone and well, there is a whole month still to go and I'm sure that everyone will find something to be excited about.

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.

IS-7 being the most used tank in CWs? In which world do you live? T110E5s are most commonly used due to 1 simple reason: versatility.

@Ectar: I'm sure you won't tell us which line will be on discount in part2, but my bet is either russian meds (if we stay russian), and if we don't stay russian, it'll be the 'Muricans (is this special trying to get more clans into CWs by discounting the most common CW tanks?)

Hang on, this isn't a troll?

Does this mean more tier 10s will go on discount in future? Also, it leads me to believe from the announcement, that this will change through the fortnight?

Thank you WG Staff for this awesome event, you really made my day. Honestly, I never believed I would see something like this, but I am probably one of the happiest player right now .
Have an awesome day,

Depending on the success of the current event, but probably yes.

The logic behind it is this: players get cheaper tank and credits gain boost.
WG gets money for xp conversion and perhaps some credits too. Also, stimulates players to reach and play top tiers, which in turn sells more Premium accounts.


Win-win.
