Double Crew Experience and Double Experience for every victory (when you are in the top 10 that is)? Unfortunately these bonusses are not parallel but one by one, but Sunday will be nice for grinding.

We just wanted to clarify any questions/comparisons that may come up regarding this event and being compared to the current RU event which rewards 2x exp for wins and losses during the same date.

 

We though long and hard about this in EU and felt that rewarding everyone for losing would not encourage a productive atmosphere for playing during Sunday. By giving players 2x exp only for every victory it means that you have a goal to work towards and winning feels more special. If you knew you were getting double exp regardless of the outcome of the match, this could lead players into not caring if they win or lose and battles not being "played to win" which is not something we want to encourage. Additionally only the top 10 players in the winning team qualify for this bonus to prevent anyone from going afk or just charging blindly across the battlefield to die quickly, going into their next battle hoping their team carries them to a win.

 

We hope you understand where we're coming from regarding the difference in the events and wish you all the best of luck during the weekend and especially on Sunday.  Should this type of bonus prove popular with the community it's likely it will feature more often.  :honoring:

Great special for the 2x XPs alone, even though I don't own even one of the vehicles in the list, despite 30+ tanks in my garage.

 

 

What I find funny though, is the Damage Inc. mission (Deal at least 4,000 damage in one battle) restriction to tiers IV and above. A tier III vehicle has about 200HP on average. You would need to kill 20 enemies at that tier to achieve the goal. I'm absolutely sure no one in the history of WoT has ever managed to do that ! :smile:

Nice special +1

Just one thing - no reason to pick a light tank for scouting.

"Deal at least 4,000 damage in one battle"

 

Is there still any reason left to pick a light tank and press battle?

Friday to Sunday as the announcement says?

or

Saturday to Monday as the Calendar suggests?

 

EDIT: never mind, apparently every part of the special has his own timeframe. Rather confusing. Nice special though.

 

EDIT 2: Reinstating my question: how come the calendar says this special is from saturday to monday, while all the special activities are from Friday to Sunday?
