In January 1943, Montgomery’s troops entered Tripoli, an important milestone in the North African Campaign. Let’s commemorate it on our battlefields.

Am I right that that is double XP for all victories (finishing in the top 10XP) after the first triple XP win?

I am genuinely impressed.

 

First the tanks in the special actualy fought in the campaighn (not like last year when British tanks where excluded from the Alamein special) and the missions are really quite sexy.

 

First ever time I've pos-repped a WG thread.

Double exp for all victories is Sunday only.  This does not stack with the triple exp for first win as that bonus is not active on Sunday.

 

Remember Commanders if you don't want to use the Large Repair Kits or the Automatic Fire Extinguishers:

 

15 Large Repair kits will sell for 150,000

5 Automatic Fire Extinguishers will sell for 50,000

The special runs for 3 days as normal.  The 3x first win is only active for the first 2 days. On the 3rd day you have 2x exp for every victory.  

Tank discount and missions run from the 24th to the 27th.

 

 

*Semi important edit* 

Also please note the win for mission "It’s Too Hot Here!" and the win condition for  "Summer maps"- this is intentional. Whilst the event is a themed event for a historical desert encounter we felt that only rewarding players for doing matches on desert maps was a bit of a tall order as they are the least common map type. To make it more enjoyable we switched the condition to be on the most common map type which in turn makes it easier for players to complete.

This might get me back to WoT at least for this week-end. So, a total of erhm...505k creds and a slot and the only requirement for that is playing around 120 battles in 3 days.

May I suggest some kind of table with the mission and the dates in the future? I've learned to look closely at the dates, but many players won't notice all the details with so many different missions and bonuses during one special.

 

Otherwise, very decent special, always looking for some crew experience bonuses. Might even go for T-15.

Time to buy Matilda again, but don't see 50% discount (only 50% income bonus). Is that intentional?

 

Anyway, very nice special, good job this time!

Great missions and all, but please Ectar eplain to me why suddenly all the special activities are from Friday to Sunday, while the calender still says they run from Saturday to Monday? Is it really so hard to fix the calendar? After all it is only the second week this is happening...

T-15 is not as cool as Locust or Pz.I C

The 2x exp for the victories was added after the calendar was created. Normally once event dates are announced they don't change however this was a global change for all regions to have this Sunday bonus. 

I'll ask to get the calendar updated to reflect this.
