How about you fix the ms lag first so we can actually enjoy the specials?

Sure if was going to be russian tanks on the discout/credit special, but makign the mission for the same tanks is a bit much.

Normally you have missions to kill tanks that get the bonus income, here it is all one way.

Nice special!

Shame the US gets the premium TD's at 50% discount instead of our 30% though. Why is that?

I'm looking into this now as well as the fact that the US has one more mission that then EU do.

Well there's a couple of tanks I need to pick up off the discount list so that's a bonus.

I'm sure our EU team will get us the same special regarding the prem tanks.

Much appreciated getting the news up early too. Cheers.

US same special but 50% instead of 30% discount on SU-100Y and SU-122-44. Double standards :/

What about SU-122-44 as credit farmer? Is it comparable to T8 farmers like JgTiger 8.8 and T34, or is more like other T6-7 premiums (20-30K net silver for good battle with premium).

According to vbadict not great silver farmer:

Any suggestions, to buy it or not? Already have Pz4S, Panther/M10, Dicker Max and E-25 and SU100Y on other account...

Nice to see you guys care about this, just as we players do. Hope you can sort this out, as I was planning to get SU-122-44 and 5 garage slots.

BTW the additional mission was present last weekend on EU server  :trollface:

You forgot to put the Stalin inscriptions at 90% discount...

Also I posted this old joke back in the October calendar topic but I find it funny enough to be worth repeating.

At the pentagon there are a lot of agitated people, the president is briefed:
- Mr. President sir, the USSR, Sir...the USSR has launched the first man-made satellite into orbit a few minutes ago.
- Oh my god general, how on earth did they manage to do that before us? This is a stain on the American flag.
- Well, sir, the only explanation we can find, is that they have better German scientists than us.

Should make the German tankers feel proud but hey, they developed rockets first.

Good special!

I'm at SU-85 now, heading towards ISU-152 so this really helps

Aah...this has me in a bind.  Should I buy back the SU-152 and KV-3 to try and complete those grinds, both previously abandoned through sheer frustration?  And what about the T-34-85 which I pretty much skipped the first time round?  Aaagh what to do????

Small update!

The reason the EU does not have the mission "Earn your steel Part III" is because we already had it back in September, but the US didn't as they had to postpone it due to technical issues.

As for the discounts, that's still being looked into.

Meh, there's nothing you can do about it, that's how EU community has always been treated.

They won't fix anything until the next patch at least... there's no point in stabbing the same wound in every topic. If they do NOT fix it in the next patch then we can start a whole new wave of rage threads.

Ok special... sad to see the free premium missions gone  :confused:

A 1.000x this! It is unbearable at this point at evening hours. Please look into this a.s.a.p. because it's just getting frustrating. Never mind the tomatoes you get paired up with and the troll MM you get occasionally (sometimes even 5+ battles in a row) where you are at the bottom of the list and the people on the top are playing worse then a 3 year old.  :angry:

I would totally buy the SU-152 if I were you and just troll around with the 152mm gun and gold shells. Nothing gives me more joy then tier 8 vehicles crying that I nailed them in the side for 600+ damage or ammo racked them.  :trollface:

A little bit to late for the German Unity Day special. Oh wait...

And it's a fact that soviet russia would have never lauchned this satelite before the 90s if it weren't for stolen technology from germany. Same goes to the USA for the moon landing.
