This one fills me with the general feeling of Meh. The mission is fine, but it feels like it needs a second one for those who don't have just armour.
50% off barracks... I can't even open my barracks it's just blank.... it may as well be 50% less lag...
2X crew XP is nice.
EDIT: I spot a flaw in the special, that you can't buy barrack slots even if you wanted to, and I get neg reps?

The mission is kinda meh. I'm missing the missions from last month where we could get some cool rewards like premium consumables and lots of credits.

Nice special, nothing I need though! Well, a part from the crew experience of course :smile:

Bad Tier V?????? I see the T1 Heavy there! A +50% credits on that is ...... a lot.

Yeah can grind shed loads on this thing. Also got a new ish crew in it after moving the old crew to t29 so some extra exp will go down nicely too!!

It's not a very big special - we had better midweek missions last month - but at least I'll have spare time to try the new german TD line on test server...

I guess we appear an ungrateful bunch probably because the missions started off WOW !!!!! and now well they are just Oh wow.
in the first week we had the chance to get a weeks premium I managed to get 14 days eventally which was very unexpected.
Combined with missions handing out equipment and lots of points for 15 victories and other pretty darn good missions.
I theink we had several easy-ish missions that netted players 25k and 50k
A week later and the missions are all hey tankers do this mission and get X1.3 crew experience or do 50,000 damage and get 250,000 xp.
as I said Oh wow
So this is a not unexpected reaction to the change in missions, I know we cannot have great missions all the time and if you handed out premium time and 250k all the time it would get silly.
If you give a kid ice cream and chocolate cake one week then a slice of toast the second but bring out each surprise with the same tadaaah fanfare you would get the same reaction.
Kill missions and victory missions are a lot easier to get if your best tank is tier 3, try playing all night and doing 50,000 damage if your in one of those.
Its a lot easier in a KV2 or ISU152 than it is in a PZ38t
Please consider decent missions for the newer and or lower tier players.
Now I must go get some coffee I appear to have a high level of grumpyness this morning
edit yes I agree x2 crew experience is very good and I have lowered my grumpyness with cafein

"50% off barracks... I can't even open my barracks it's just blank...."   ----- i see that everybody has this problem, what's up with that?????
we can not buy barracks slots, this offer is useless

Why is there so little apreciation for x2 crew xp. For example I recently got an isu152 which gave me a noob-loader. ( extra loader in isu152 compared to the previous td's in the line ) If I train him in my su122-44 I get x4 crew xp for him every game. Just a few games each day gridning some cash in the su122-44 will get him up to 60-70% in his first skill. I could probably get him to 100% first skill if I wanted to.

I'm probably also getting some of the ' mainstay ' V tanks. They do regularly seem to be used for missions, and buying them now is free of charge, because you can always sell them making no loss if you desperatly need the cash.

It's a poor man that sees nothing in this special.

It's a bit meh.
On the plus side:
-Tier 5 increased income and discounts (it good for new and veteran players)
-2 x crew XP is nice
The downsides:
-the tank selection is rather poor. Add more vehicles to the special
-no additional XP bonus for the 1st win of the day (I don't think it should exclude with crew XP bonuses)
-the mission is very limited (as of only viable on quite specific vehicles)
