Will the mission tracker be fixed so that it displays kills in those three tanks? Because it doesn't do so at the moment.

I know i am going to be neg-reped for this, but the last mission....WHY only the tier 5 vehicles?.Some players just don't like low-tiers( like me ), but they want such a bonus.

Lot's of crew experience is always welcome, and it's even better when you get "second chances"...  :teethhappy:

Well... last mission would be fine... except i have none of those tanks, and none of them are researched... or tanks before them or any leading up to them... oh well, very uncool :(
p.s. but i do like the prospect of having such "bigger" missions in the future(tanks as reward too?:P)... just hope they wont always be that restrictive :P

As this special is live tomorrow morning, the Mission Tracker should be updated and show the correct details.

Enjoy the bonuses guys, I know I'll do so during my weekend :D!

Lets see how MM will handle the load of T5, my guess is as follows:

Tanks in queue:
T7: 50
T6: 75
T5: 500
T4: 200
T3: 75

Yet every battle on T5 tank will include at least 1 T7 and 1 T6

Well, the last mission seems, well maybe not interesting, but at least attractive. Good thing my Type 34 crew is still in the barracks. Or maybe I should just take advantage of the double exp from victory bonus and grind a few tanks.

Question about the wrecking steel sessions. Is it needed to kill those 60 tanks in 1 day or do we have the whole weekend till the special ends?
OK good and thanks for quick answer Asuschrist. Although i had a feeling it was to be that way i had to get a confirmation.

It's like that all the time, yet I end up being single bottom tier every time  :sceptic:

Thats what I noticed in past during many T5 focused specials. One would think you will get fairly balanced T5 battles with so many players in queue, but no.

and what is wrong with that? ( except i don't have type t-34 but as is tier 5 is easy to get... )
reward is nice for quite "easy" mission to achieve, is tier 5 we talk, and any player with little skill can achieve frags fast... maxiumum should be 60 battles for all 3 tanks...
and to be more correct, reward is Excellent.

Eagle eyed players may notice that this special is pretty much the exact same as the NA special. going forward for all future specials EU and NA will be pretty much doing the exact same. Obirian has been doing a lot of work behind the scenes and talking to our NA counterparts and as a result we will be doing the same specials.This is something that's been requested by the community for a while.
As for changing to a Fri-Sun special from a Sat-Mon, this is still being considered. The number of players over the weekend still fluctuates.

Pathetic how exactly?  20 kills in either of those tanks is pretty easy and can be done in about 6-8 games each.  Ok so some players might not have all 3 tanks, but then it's like that with no matter what special we do. That is also only 1 part of a much larger event.  I find it surprizing you overlook everything else just to be negative about something you don't feel you can take advantage of.
Events cater for all different types of players. If stuff doesn't suit you this week, then perhaps next week will have something you enjoy.
"Pathetic" isn't really helpful feedback. It's not better than "I don't like it" or "Nope".  At least tell us why you don't like it, then we can use that feedback when planning future events.
