It's a pun, the Jagdtiger 88 is using the Pak 43 gun. A pun on the gun, if you will...

Hey mods/admins/community:

 

Whatever happened to the "We'll announce weekend-specials on a Thursday from now on instead of Friday" regime you started 3 months back?

The last two weeks or so you've failed to do this.

Recently there has been a lot of article stacking near the weekends sadly so sometimes news articles have to be shifted. We're working hard to get news articles published in advance but for some articles it's not exactly an urgent priority. Knowing 2 days or 1 day earlier doesn't make a massive difference when it comes to weekend specials. The main reason anyone ever gives is basically "It would be nice to know".  I know everyone likes to think publishing news articles is easy but when you're doing it in 7 languages and co-coordinating with at least 2 other regions in different time zones who don't have to worry about translation, it's not as easy as you think. For every player who says they don't care about the other regions, there is just as many players who complain the other regions got the news out first.

FTR is doing the job instead of the lazy WG EU. All specials for August were leaked (and were true), as well as all for the September are also leaked (since late August). Just give up following the official portal, as they always have better things to do thank actually working... Just a head start:

20.9.-23.9. 

- 50 percent discount on equipment

among other things in the meantime...

 

Just follow the source managed by one blogger, instead of the whole office with employees on salary :-).

Are you getting articles 2 days before they need to be published then? I'm just wondering as translating a slab of text is half an hour work if you have a native speaker as a translator.

 

I know you have a lot of stuff to coordinate but generally the only articles that interest the people on this board truly on Thursday/Friday is the weekend special :smile: Things like the gift shop etc. can wait.

I'm not going to go into detail otherwise everyone from the forum who's suddenly a global and regional content manager will then start giving their advice. Rest assured it's not as simple as everyone likes to think it is otherwise there wouldn't be any issues and we'd just magically do what players suggest. Another thing you have to consider is we also post to 4 different products now.  You can't seriously think for a second we delay news just to annoy players do you? Of course not so there is other things sadly that are sometimes out of our control.  From what I recall we've only once in the past 2 years failed to get the weekend special announced 24 hours in advance. The article will be up today and players will know what to expect for tomorrow.

The problem with say the gold and premium time is that I might be tempted by this, however, whilst the gold could just sit in my account the premium account would start as soon as i buy the package. Now I am going to be on holiday which would be in the middle of when the premium time started so it is not worth it as i would lose 2 weeks premium.

 

I would prefer the gold in my account and perhaps a code for the 30 days to use whenever i can make use of it? Just an idea.

 

EDIT: Can i gift this to myself? would this then sit and wait until i accepted it, so i could buy it now as a gift to myself, then accept when im back and it would start from then, or are you not able to gift to yourself?

Nope you can't gift it to yourself :( such a pain that you can't choose when to use it, that is why I didn't renew mine a few days before I went away for 2 weeks.

Will be ever have an opportunity to purchase the Pz. Kpfw 35H again?

 

Currently the Xbox store has a really nice and well priced bundle available. Whilst I understand they are separate and get their own offers, I have not seen this tank in any bundles since my time of joining the game over a year ago. Would be nice to have an opportunity to get it.

That was not what I meant at all so I'm sorry if it came across the wrong way. What I meant was that hardly anyone gives a toss about "news" articles a part from details on the weekend special so it might be preferable if that was posted as the 1st article on a Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.

Thanks for your work Ectar. You're just lucky that only a tiny, tiny percentage of players feel the need to criticise everything WG does!

Yep, they are also the type of players that moan constantly and still play the game, double standards at its finest.
Ps. I remember the days with no weekend specials.
Keep up the good updates WG, you have my full support (financially as well)
