wotspecials.com counts 14 weekends that included Pz III/IV and 17 weekends that included Pz IV. Looks ok to me.
Only those that include whole branch/tier/class/nation.

They could at least add something like 30% off desert camo for credits and gold, because it's a desert themed special, a mission with improved vents as a reward "to make crews more comfy in hot climate" or a special mission to kill each of the listed tanks on the desert map for some good credits reward - 100k maybe?

And that's what I came up with while typing. Seriously, if you struggle to come up with any ideas, WG team, just ask forum users for feedback and pick the most interesting and realistic propositions.

It starts to be ridiculous funny to see how week after week there's no 50% crew (re-)train rebate. Now it's more than 2 months* since we had it last... and counting!  :great:not
*(edit: the last time we had this rebate was gamescom special Aug22... That's 2 months and 2 days ago........ )

Poor special, discounts for cheap tanks.  :sleep:
And, how many special for campaigns in North Africa, featuring roughly the same tanks (Crusader, Matilda, Churchill, PzIII, PzIV, Tiger) are we gonna see?

On a positive note though; this is the 2nd time in a row you post the details for the special on a Thursday, well done on that!  :smile:
Getting spoiled here after months of details not even being published by Friday...  :coin:

in 2013 it seems like there have been 2 specials specifically mentioning Pz III/IV and 5 specials specifically mentioning Pz IV. Not that big a difference, but still you have a point.
Then again, most tier 5s have been involved in about 14 specials so far so Pz III/IV is right on the average while Pz IV is above average.
Poor KV-1 has only had 9 specials and T49 has had only 8 specials. Seems to me the more popular a tank is, the less specials it gets :)

It's a meh special as many have said, but next weekend should be good. And don't forget; they don't have to give us any specials. I have been critical of WG about specials in the past, but with the quite good specials over the past few months that have resulted in an invasion of, what could best be described as "special" players, this weekend might make playing the higher tiers almost pleasurable. I hope

So no 50% on crew retraining or x5 on first victory this time either ...

starting to loose interest in this game now, they let us get stuff, sure, but not anything that could make THEM not get there money ...

Will not renow my premium now until they get better.

Every week... huge disappointment. Why cant yo make normal special that would actually make people want to play ? Equipment discount must have been more than 2months ago now...

Your trolling is getting old, WG.
I still cant imagine how you can even make this-like special? For all specials what i remember, this is probably the worst.

Discount and credit income only on 4 tanks.
Mission is total RNG. This game has only 3 desert maps. Im sure that i will not get that +20% exp in this weekend that often.
-10% off from 1/2 year and 1 year premium account? Well, not so many guys put  that much money once...
Most. Pathetic. Special. Ever.

Just 4 tanks on discount?
What about all the others that took part, why are they not included?

No discount on desert camo or other related items?

Feels like a distinct lack of effort from wg.

Oh well.

Still no equipment discount.
Spoiler                     

Can we get equipment discounted more frequently than once in a blue moon I wonder. Also the mission is crap IMO.
