Been waiting for Tetrarch for ages now so this is a great special. A long with all discounts etc. Done the first part, 2nd part should be easy with x5 (just had 12.5k from one battle lol).

Is it just me or do the x5 for the 1st battle do count for the total of 50K XP needed? I had it in no time.

Yes, x5 and PA counts, but you must be in top 10 by base XP...

It will probably take the whole weekend to get those 50k xp. A lot of xp were denied for the count (like 3k for first win) because I finished 11th or worse. That's not fair.

It is very fair. It prevents botting. Else people would just run a bot program which would get you the xp without any effort, while ruining the battles for the teams they get in.

Then why don't just the three best players get the bonus, in case the remaining 12 are botting?

Because WG wants money. People have been complaining against bots for ages. In this case you have had the short end of the stick, which sucks obviously. It sometimes happens to me as well.

 

Yesterday, a red 580 WN8 player with 3 or 4k battles I think,  came on my team in his Tiger I. There were 3 or 4 tier 9 tanks on each team. He said: "I can't do anything against Tier 9. I'm out of here." It took him a minute to drive to the water front and then he drowned. I'm very [edited]he didn't get any rewards for the game he had.

 

I was surprised this guy had 580 WN8 as there are plenty of players with a lower WN8 and more games. The game doesn't need to encourage these players to remain bad.

Thanks for Tetrarch, but what now? Do I want to keep playing rest of the night after grind?

Not really.

Sweet! Just got 750 and a garage spot for the mission! I was afraid that since tanks are 50% off that they would only give us half the price, like with the Chu nu kai mission, but here we get all of it, and I think is a nice move from WG :)

Thanks again WG! :D

Tetrarch was not for sale at that time, so it doesn't get any discounts in gold.

True, but they could have been not cool about it, but they were, so I'm happy :)

Thanks - nice missions, for bit of extra gold; 2 pieces of equipment I would not normally by but am pleased to have; Tetrarch (which I have always resisted buying in the past). Best of it all, I was annoyed because it said I had won a garage slot, yet I still only had my previous 3 spare. Then I realised the extra one was *already* occupied by the Tetrarch, ie mission completed before I had even realised it. Can't be bad.

Won the little bugger an hour ago, had to play for a while since I have only a few tanks in my garage, but managed anyway.

...now to grind for some silver and rebuy those binoculars I sold like an idiot... :hiding:

Same, I have a 275% Crusader crew that'd be perfect and make the tank into an ultimate seal clubber. Still yet to play it as when I got it yesterday, I was close to losing the will to live

Yay! And as a matter of fact Bristish (the one with the machine gun is unreliable) tree lacks low tier premiums alongside French and Chinese. But Russian tree have many low tier premiums and Tetrarch is a British tank. It's kinda silly that it's in Russian tree instead of British.

It's because it pre-dates the British tree.  I got mine several years ago when they gave everyone one for free (for xmas, or some anniversary).  Was my tier 2 fun tank until I discovered the cruiser 3.  Still I'm happy 750 gold + garage slot (worth another 150 gold) is a great result.

I am not so sure these armours will be coming into in-game shop later at all. Finally T-34-85M did not make it there either.

Oh, I don't expect them to stay for longer than the event. I'm just amused at how the pricing would've landed an IS-2 buyer with a worse tank that still has to fight tier 9s. Could be considered worth it because it's a limited edition tank, of course, but I'm still amused.

I have to say something about the new garage. 
WHERE IS THE CANADIAN FLAG? Where's the Polish flag? Where's the Scottish flag (ok, can forgive that one). Where's the Indian flag? Where's the Australian flag? Where's the New Zeeland flag?
Yet, there's the French flag? I'm sorry, I don't want to offend my French friends, but you can't seriously have a remembrance of the ending of WW2 without the flags I mentioned, but do add the French flag.
Either add them all, or don't add any. Europe wasn't liberated only by the USSR, UK and US. 
I'm Dutch, and it offends me that you don't remember the Canadians and Polish heroes.

 

/rant.

Well, this is a Berlin-themed event, and the four nations represented by the flags were the four occupiers of Berlin after the war. In that respect there's probably not a lot to be proud of. All the Commonwealth nations came under the purview of the Union Flag, while Poland was then aligned with the USSR.
