Disregarding it's crew training for the third week in a row it's actually a decent special...

 

The mission is a bit of a "screw you" to lower tier players though.

 

But all in all, thumbs up :)

Such a special. Worse then the original one are you kidding me? Giving us 30% discount and 20% more credits while the original one had 50% off and 30% more credits? :facepalm:

Looks a lot like a copy/paste fail since they use this format on the american server.

One line that is important for this special.

Let's hope it is just a introduction to Xmas-NY specials!

They ran out of ideas and decided to give us a special like the previous one except the new one is worse.

We had a lot of great specials lately, so 2 mediocre ones in a row shortly before x-mas season kinda feels like a letdown.

Several scientific studies show that the world will indeed explode if WG makes more deals with tier 8 and above.

 

Thank you WG for saving the world. We owe you.:medal:

Imagine the madness that would happen if we did that. We just can't have that happen kikox, I don't know if everyone is ready for it yet.

Except not. You can't relive something and have it different.

 

You could of said, "hey we have a special which is somewhat similar to another special we had earlier in the year, but hey we didn't have missions then! So no big discounts for you!"

I wonder how all of the WG staff have like a lot of positive reputation,when every time i enter the forum and see some of them wrote something - they are always given the neg reputation.

I think they add positive reputation themselves.

So much truth, You can relive the special only this time it will be worse? GJ!

 

If it is part of the Xmas build up surely you could have given us a better version? Even basic like including the Excelsior?

 

The community give so many good ideas and the best you can come up with a 50% version of an old special - at least you are consistent!

 

And before people harp on about whiners - man its impossible to believe how many ways WG can take something good and dirty it, you cant make it up!

 

EDIT to clarify they are actually giving us a special that is half as good as the one it is meant to be reliving - maybe memories fade?

This couldn't have been a better time! I'm literally 10 games from unlocking both Black Prince and T29 and both are discounted! That's close to a full 1 million credits saved!
