Is this weekend special really only 2 days long? That end time @ Feb 2nd 6.00 am isn't a typo?

 

Edit - Nevermind, I only now noticed all the different parts have different times they're on.

Nice special after that IS-6 mission - means I can get T29, AMX M4, and Tiger I to accompany my Tiger P and Black Prince in garage... Maybe I could get an IS-2 as well... gotta check my silver =w=

That's only for the experience - check the mission at the bottom of the page, it covers this Sunday bonus in a slightly different way (pretty much like the last Sunday) ;x

Also, considering picking up an Excelsior or T14...

First of all, 20% more income with T6-T7 tanks ? Useless.

 

Second, if you want to give x2 xp for each victory, why the f...k do you give it on sunday, when the WR is by far the worst (10%-20%) of the entire week ? Last time I played for this special I had much less average xp on such a day than I have on a regular day.

Sunday 2x  xp mission is great... rest is OK for those still looking to buy tier 6 and 7 heavies on discount. The other missions are a bit meh...

First, T6-7 already make a lot (T6 is along with T5 one of the most profitable tiers in game), so there's no point boosting their incomes too much, especially when it's by percent.

 

Second, you switch cause and effect - it's not that mission is bad because of Sunday, but because there's a mission, lots of very bad and very good people play, so it's easier to affect the battle and more extreme results happen. If you placed the mission on Saturday, they'd play on Saturday and it would as bad as Sunday is "bad" now - if you get bad teams, that is (or play bad because of frustration after first few losses, but I guess you wouldn't admit that possibility, right?).

Guys, I can recommend the T14 whilst on offer, fun little tank, it needs some premium rounds loaded occasionally but that goes for most low pen premium tanks

Is this one of those 'sock puppet' accounts I've been hearing (ok, reading) about?

While I feel sorry for the new players during this special (good luck at tier four- if there wasn't a huge problem with the disparity of people at tier six dragging people up almost every game already there will be this weekend!), it's not a bad special. Might buy an Excelsior with the gold from the 'earn a T-15' mission last week and finally get around to buying the Churchill 7.
