As usual, the best event goes to anywhere else but the EU server http://worldoftanks.com/en/news/pc-browser/22/sea-can-destroy/

The missions on the special are great... and easy.  The 25% equipment discount is a little disappointing though...

At the end of the month it will be an event with 50% off for equipment.

Edit: for consumables my bad...

OK,

 

 

Meh, then.


 

25% off equipment is useless.  Everyone (with a brain) waits for the 50%.  Double crew exp is nice, and the missions are pretty good, but the rest is pretty indifferent.


 

And yes, I am a miserable old git.

250k for module and 250k for killing. 

2x crew exp

and +25% exp for almost every battle if you are half decent.

Everything perfectly useful and easy to get.

I say great special.

And i think i will buy t-34-1 to have some chinese tanks in my garage just in case.

Re all the comments about discounts on equipment - I honestly think we've seen the end of the days when we used to get 50% discount on equipment quite often.  Obviously, I hope I am wrong, but I think it's likely that in future we'll only see it on very special occasions, like WG's birthday, or over the Christmas and New Year.

 

This was the same with vehicle discounts - we used to get regular discounts on 50% off all the way up to tier 7.  But that was probably 12-18 months ago.  Now, we *only* get 30% off tier 6 and 7.  On the plus side though, we do get discounts on tier 8s and sometimes even 9 and 10s, including the Top of the Tree special which we never used to get. 

 

Interestingly, I wonder if the days of the 50% sale on consumables and maybe even garage slots and barrack bunks might be numbered?  We've had a few instances recently where they've been 30% off.  Are they mentally preparing us for a future where the 50% sale is only a distant memory?

 

Obviously, WG have access to all the raw data and know how many credits the average player has and what the overall availability of credits is.  They also must love it when players buy credit packages from the gift shop or convert gold to credits in game.  I wonder how much these things affect the specials they offer us?  Squeeze the players for credits so they pay real money, whilst offering the odd 250k credit mission reward to keep people thinking they are being looked after?   Hmm...

 

Edit - as for this special....it's nice, I like it.  The Medium Tanks Rolling Out mission is a really nice idea and will help with some of my grinds - thanks guys :-)

Feedback: Stop doing 25% equipments. I'd rather one weekend with no equipment discount, and one weekend with 50% discount.

 

Crew XP is always good.
