What a horrible, horrible special. Are you running out of ideas?

 

Edit: Why, cause it simply translates to "do about 75-100 battles and get some free stuff". There is simply nothing special about that.

This is what WGEU calls a challenge? Well, considering their standards...

Crappy special, bring the one you have cancelled last week because of the football thing.

Yes! The special announced on Thursday again :)

 

Double crew XP always welcome, the rest is good for credits. I always sell any premium consumables I get anyway.

Compared to the NA missions, this is pretty garbage.

Why is there such a HUGE difference??

Ok, I'll accept this challenge, and I'll counter WG with a challenge of my own.  Do you want to bet me I cannot do this using only my KV-2 in 80 battles or less?

Useless. junk. call this a challenge? a special? they seriously need to get there act together. give me a tank on sale...ANYTHING! give me a freaking major discount on a Prem tank and a few higher tier normal tanks.! this is a joke.

 

Edit: U.S servers get SU-100Y 11% discount...its £10.13...

I WANTED THAT TANK ON DISCOUNT! DAMMIT!

So ~150.000 in consumables and ~250.000 in modules meaning a total of ~400.000 for like.. what will you need 30 battles?

 

Best thing i can say about this special: We had worse.

 

:wacko:

Oh noes...

 

The "I WANT MOAR" crowd is out again... and the first "WHY NA GET BETTER SPESJULS" has appeared as well.

 

Pathetic bunch of spoiled brats.

 

Personally I never did anything special for the specials, but any time I get something out of it, I think it's a nice little extra.

You dont even understand the definition of "spoiled brat" if you think EU are the spoiled brats. pretty sure "getting something amazing and then complain about it" is what a spoiled brat does. EU GET NOTHING AMAZING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.

More than that, I think.  If I understand it correctly, you have to win 15 first.  Assuming a 55% WR that's about 27 games.  THEN you need to get the 15,000 damage - that might be anything from 5 games to 15 or more.  THEN you need to get 15,000 base XP.  That's harder, I think, with maybe another 27 games (using my avg stats).  So that's a total of maybe 27+15+27 = 69 games.

 

FINALLY, to get the toolbox you then need to finish top of your team by base XP.  For some players that's just never going to happen, for others it might be a few games.  For more average players call it about 10 games.  So that's why I reckon I could do this in under 80 battles.

Comparing a weekend special to a two week one? Well, okay...

They used to, some time ago (about half a year, year), every weekend. The response was that people demanded more every weekend.

If these weak weekends mean that the specials during big occasions (D-Day, start of war, etc) will feel more special, then I don't mind having weaker weekend specials.

Here's a challenge for WG: try to come up with a special that would catch my interest when there are tons of other stuff I could be doing

 

...I see they've already failed
