The special is kinda underwhelming when it's told to you like it's a nice special.
The problem why everybody's dissapointed is in the way WG announces its specials.

The new 'specials'-system expects to accumulate the month missions with the top of the tree missions with the interactive/random draw special.
Therefor, the weekend-specials will be less interesting than they used to be.
If they focus more on the part where it's all together (Yes, they do, I've read it, but it isn't highlighted as much as they should), people would complain less.

People will still ask for equipment discount, training discount, *5 weekends, discounts on tier 8 premiums or tier IX and X, free flying ponies and instant-win-buttons.
WG should keep their community happy, or shouldn't get them hyped up and then showing them something less than they're used to.

I think its not big special, because they won the golden joystick award and next week is halloween :), so they will give us big specials after this small special.

Honestly, I don't understand who can make such 'specials'.They thought that everyone would buy premium and increaase their revenue, because it's a rare occasion where they give long-term premium discount. It's more of a special to WG than to players.Their logic is flawed. If they made and awesome weekend special, with awesome mission and loads of extra xp, more people would be playing, more people withou premium would be considering buying premium (because it's on discount and because they want to take more out of this weekend).

I only hope that the next weekend won't be infested by clueless team-members, unpredictable useless ones and retarded idlers looking at the sky. Otherwise this special was sweet for my Crew.

Ok, Ectar i know it is your job to defend WG and that is fine. But tell me please, if EU community could vote on every friday which special do they want EU, RU or NA what do you think votes would be?

I predict 70/25/5 for RU/NA/EU. It is simple as that...

I think anyone would vote for the most amount of stuff they could get each week regardless of which region was doing it and actually regardless of how much that actually applies to them.  They simply want it because it's more. That doesn't mean it's a good solution.

So can you then point us to a single event where EU got more than RU? Shouldn't be hard if it's a matter of "one had to be on top and it alternates" as your response makes it imply.
.
Not trying to heckle you but many of us, myself included have dialed down on the money we spent on this game because of these and various other public relation factors.
.
Once my premium expires I'm honestly not sure if I'll extend it either this way. Do check on my account if you'd like and you will see a decline in expenditure.
.
Please do extend this info to the Russian overlords. They ARE losing money over all of this.
.
Best regards.

Italian tanks still lack, they were at El Alamein and they can bounce Churchill tanks....

But Ectar even you can't say that +20% exp for winning on desert maps which are only 3 maps out of 36 in rotation (excluding Dragon Ridge) isn't extremely underwhelming. It's the same bonus that was for summer maps before and then it was fine since most of the maps are summer maps (29 of 36). But now it's just a joke, no one is going to notice the tiny amount they get from that.
