Sadly no 300k for me as I have no japanese tanks :harp:

 

ps I suppose it might give me the chance to shoot a few rare tanks for the national medal/award :playing:

Well it's lucky then that we also have:

 

Triple Experience for the First Victory of the Day

50% discount on all standard Japanese vehicles, Tier III - V

30% discount on all standard Japanese vehicles, Tier VI – VII

 

That way if you don't have Japanese tanks they're easier to pick up with discounts and everyone can benefit from 3x first win of the day.  

 

Along with the 300,000 mission reward, the Onigiri and Automatic Fire Extinguishers you collect can be sold for additional profit meaning even more credits.

3 T4+ Japanese tanks in garage... I think I'll give this a try, 15k XP a day is doable and it'll help me get closer to Type 61.

New plan for the weekend -> play a handful of games in Ke-Ho -> bag 300k and that Onigiri ( Japanese food made from white rice formed into triangular or oval shapes and often wrapped in nori (seaweed). - Wiki)

Missions are ok but was really hoping for a crew retraining discount again, shame it's missing but maybe next weekend then :)

 

I'll be focussing on playing the STA-1 then!

Nice special,  since i get close to get the STA-1, and maby even getting the Type 61. i need these tanks for the september missions to get the Type 62!!

3x Xp for the first victory is good for the premium tanks so i can get higher tiers more easily.

But why would anyone do that? Japanese tanks are good only on the highest tiers, but you have to crawl there first, and that will be doable only for a skilled player, because your average WoT player will get frustrated quickly. They are made of paper, and one of my favourite targets for HE shells... There is a reason why these tanks are not popular. They are not the Chinese copy pasta tanks, they are quite unique and have their own characteristic, but this characteristic is well, crap (for most people). They are rare, even with all these Japanese fanboys present (just look how many have avatars/sigs with dem Chinese cartoons), and well the general popularity of Japan as a country and culture, as well as their part in the WWII history.

Surely, a variety is one of the strenghts of the WoT, and it is nice to see various tanks instead of lets say flood of OP Hellcats and KV1S which result in a boring battle, but as I've said an the beginning - Japanese tanks are not noob friendly.

Dont agree with you hated only the Chi To, Ke-ho for example was really nice, might even get it back for this event.

Why are you guessing what will be next week, when the details of the specials for whole August were leaked, as well as the ones for September are? Just read FTR, everything from August was true form that source, so may be as well in the September, which will have a really silly mission for the ekhm, ekhm, "exclusive" KV-220 BTW.

They may not be new player friendly but then you're never going to learn something if you don't try. You can get the 300k by working on the other missions which will help you learn the tanks and there is plenty of guides on our forums to help players learn these tanks.  The alternative of making the mission for tanks that are "noob friendly" then means everyone would be able to get the mission completed easily and well, missions are intended to require a little bit of work to achieve  them as the rewards increase.

 

You're generalization of players who use Japanese tanks is a bit off, especially when you're confusing sigs with anime images as "Chinese cartoons". I play German tanks but I have no interest really in German culture for example. I also happen to like mecha anime but that doesn't influence my choice in playing Japanese tanks. The only reason I personally play some Japanese tanks is because I want the STB-1 as it has similar characteristics to the Leo 1 and Fv4202, both tanks I really enjoy playing.
