Sorry,  While I respect the fact that WG does not have to make W/E specials at all, the event is getting weaker and weaker, while your counterpart in the NA server is banging out better and better specials.

 

Why all the premium consumables?  Why not str8 up credits?

 

Please try to do better.  Not insane New Year Specials for run of the mill w/e, but you guys at WG EU know how to put up a nice w.e special.

The purchase of PANTHER M10,the premium one,i dont know if its already done,but if not,it should be delivered with at least 2 PERMANENT camouflages free,according to its history in the battlefields(Ardennes).

I expect an OFFICIAL answer from WG staff for this.

Medium tanks ftw! Nice special. Would love to see the Medium discount be 5-7 or so instead though. :)

I have a number of premium tanks. I own a Panther V/M10. I have only a single piece of advice. DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE. It is by a long way the worst premium tank that I own.

 

Best  to worst of my collection;

1. Type 59 (8)

2. IS 6 (8)

3. Chi Nu Ki (5)

4. e 25 (7)

5. Lowe (8)

6. T34 (8)

7. Tetrarch (2)

8. S35 739(f) (3)

9. Super Pershing (8)

10. T-127 (3)

11. T1E6 (2)

12. LTP (3)

13. T7 Combat Car (2)

 

I would therefore rate the Panther V/ M10 as 14th!

Reasons why;

(a) poor gun for tier

(b) poor speed for tier

(c.) very poor gun for tier

(d) poor manoeurveability for tier

(e) extremely bad gun for tier

(f) poor camo

(g) horrid gun

(h) view range poor (350m)

(i) terrible gun for tier

(j) Can't mount a VStab, which makes snapshots and shooting on the move ineffective.

(k) terrible gun for tier

(l) Front hull armor is weak and will be penned a lot if exposed

(m) really very bad gun for tier

(n) Below average, or almost average in tier DPM, depending on which calculation you use (first shot, or not first shot).

(o) did I mention how very bad the gun is in tier?

(p) if you want a German medium crew trainer the T-25 and Schmaltrum are both better tanks in their tier than the Panther V/M10 is in tier 7

 

It averages about 22,000 credit profit, so worse than all my tier 8 premiums and not as good as my e 25. Preferred MM when not in a platoon means maximum tier 9.

 

The only reason to buy this sub par premium is some form of bet that WG buff the gun. Since this is extremely unlikely to occur do not buy the Panther V/M10.

Meh. I've hoped for 50% discount on consumables. MAybe next time.

As for thr x3 - not bad, but for me the x2 crew for every battle were better, but I'm not grinding tanks - just driving the ones I like.

I now that not all the weeks it can be great specials, but the last time you're disappointing me war gaming. Especially when i see the other servers. So give us at least once a month an awesome special, with non stop 30% extra crew xp and 30% more income on medium tanks etc. And stop with those large repair kits, give us credits instead. 

 

I'll hope you will change things very soon.

 

Kind regards Sjaaksnel

The repair kits are there because we have certain limits on what we can rewards players with with regards to the values.  We reward repair kits so players can either choose to use them or sell them. If you got the straight up credit value, you wouldn't be able to purchase 2 repair kits.

Let's start with some good stuff. Triple exp for the first victory, nice standard weekend special bonus. Discount on certain meds, not spectacular but decent for some players at least.

 

But, ...

... those missions are pathetic! There used to be a time when I cared to play extra battles to complete a mission goal, not happening anymore, and sadly it's been like this for a couple of weekend specials now as well as for recent monthly missions.  Why would you even cap the times of completion??? 30% extra crew XP seems nice but why only for three battles, even more three victories? Maybe I'm spoiled by past time events, I'm not going to start about current events on different servers. 

 

I'm wondering, what are you WG EU aiming for when you make such an event? Have a nice day.

Is the "Run with the Wolves!" mission limited to 3 times per day?

 

As for the consumables... have you considered giving Large First Aid Kits or Automatic Fire Extinguishers?

I agree about the misions I used to really look forward to seeing them done and completed. i used to play more too. Now I rarely even bother with them... mundane and unimaginative WG..
