Stupid icons strike again. Having a hard time telling what they mean and no explanation given.

 

I guess they're for standard tanks, although the gold background could imply premium.

 

x3 xp for first win?

Yep...

 

I am hating them too

Must be a throwback from Tablet gaming  :sceptic:

It actually took me a few seconds to interpret the middle icon. I guess the hand sign is "V for Victory". So it's x3 for the 1st win.

 

I really dislike those symbols alone. Not clear enough and last time Wargaming forgot half of the bonusses because there was no space on the image left...

Can you not write a short list with all bonusses in addition?

 

Event itself is decent though.

could you, at least, make a list of all icons, and explain what they mean. I'm tired of guessing.

And how about you don't change the icons?:amazed: even if it is only the colour of the roman numerals, it makes things only more unclear...

 

 

Also why don't you use the ingame symbol for Free-XP? You know, it would be a bit more intuitive...

Srsly: Doesn't it take even much longer to make the picture than just writing a short list? I mean: What's the sense of it? Has the average age in WoT dropped from 10 to 8 now, so people aren't able to read? It's the only explanation I can find.

Being told about special a day before it activates? What happened? ;)

 

Appreciated, free stuff is always nice ... and like some said above ... perhaps a perm link to whatever all possible symbols could mean?

Why not put the icons and a description? The addition of icons is a good thing, since it makes it clear without having to look into the actual article, but since this is only the second time these icons are used people still need to get used to them. Having the icon banner and a short description of what the specials are in the article would be the best.

I like the icons, but I wouldn't mind an explanation in text.

Not a bad event and I can live with the icons though its going to be difficult to convey a variable with an icon.

 

As in up to 50% off camo for instance.

 

So either variable reductions are a thing of the past or they will have to come up with a pretty fancy icon to explain it.

 

I would give you a plus for the event but im all out have a virtual +1

yes! the 25 to 35 exp per 1 gold will help me out with my MAUS! xD by the way, just a suggestion to WG, those ICONS, should be with HYPERLINKS that could lead us to a certain part of the page that could have a resumed explanation of what is it.

Why only random battles? Battle is battle.  CW, Stronghold and teambattle is also battles.

Yes, MM is not popular anymore and players must be there coax.  Who is to blame that is not popular?

Oh yes, players are to blame. They do not want to play unbalanced MM. Very bad...:confused:

What is up with the icons seriously? 

 

Writing up 5 bullet points is not expensive enough you have to Photoshop icons to spend some extra money ? 

 

Or from the latest server statistics you assumed the average player is so dumb they cant read? 

 

Good special though.

Dear Wargaming, if you're short-staffed or something, I've been looking for a job. :)

So last week when you first started this you had 15% discount for all tier 8 tanks symbolized by the number 8 in black font in a grey rectangle in a white circle.

15% discount for all tier 8 premium tanks was the number 8 in black font in a yellow rectangle in a white circle.

 

Now the letters are white in a yellow rectangle :|

 

Is it so hard to keep the same colours? Moreover, is it so hard to explain all the symbols first or put a link somewhere with an explanation of all the symbols? And what was so wrong with the old way of presenting the specials?
