For a second I was thinking we were getting an equipment sale.

 

Somehow I think playing German vehicles during this special is not a good idea.

I suggest firing person responsible for creating these specials. Lame, boring, not really making me going for it with randoms full of bots and tomatoes. 10 extinguishers? Its D-Day, gentleman. Oh wait, its not a commemoration [edited]. I used to spend quite a lot of money on tanks and premium acc, not anymore, keep your [edited] Q&A and lame work, good luck to you.

Damn man, from the details of the event and rewards associated with it on commemorating one of the most momentous events of World War II  I'd hate to see how you'd commemorate anything else:

The birth of your child: So happy I think I'll make a cup of coffee

Win the lotto: Think I'll make myself some toast

Alien makes first contact: They seem like lovely people

Operation overlord (one of the most momentous events of World War II): 1 premium day and 10 fire extinguishers, and a few other little bits and bobs.

 

Something between the event offerings and the actual text detailing the event is either overstated or understated. Either the rewards are understated in what is offered compared to the sheer momentousness of the event (in your own words WG), or your text is overstated for what's on offer, haha. Not sure which one to pick. Let the neg repping begin.

Just checked my replay folder: I have again played 69 games without seeing Overlord map even once.

 

But I see Ensk 4 times, Prokhorovka 3 times, Fishing Bay 4 times, Steppes 4 times...

 

So maybe in celebration of Operation Overlord... you know... I could play the map?

Well, lets compare the 2015 event with the 2 previous years then.

 

2014 http://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/44/special-dday-2014/

 

2013 http://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/44/remember-d-day/

 

Looking back it's interesting to see how much the community has changed in 2 years I guess.  If we offered the 2013 one now there would be outrage we only care about mid tiers.  If if was aimed at higher tiers the newer players wouldn't be happy.  It's almost impossible to cater to the individual, but at least compared to previous years we're offering more vehicles on discounts and at variety of tiers.  If you don't want the 10 Automatic Fire Extinguisher's then it's a free 50,000 credits. Personally I'll take all the Automatic Fire Extinguishers I can get as they always earn their keep.

I'll take the 2013 or 2014 offer over this. I would rather get 50% on equipment or consumables than this overflow of Automatic Fire Extinguishers

Really ! 100,000k credits or (another) 10 extinguishers and 1 day of premium for for killing 40 tanks of a specific nature and win the battle in the top 10  ! And this is to celebrate D-Day ! 

 

Considering we can get 10 extinguishers in 5 days (without premium) by just winning 10 battles in the top 8, makes the special look pretty poor !  

 

Someone earlier mention that if this had been a Eastern European celebration it would be a stronger special ! I tend to agree !

You are actually throwing vehicle discounts in our faces almost weekly. But you completely got rid of credit bonuses. Why?
I have unlocked or em close to unlocking 15 tier 10 vehicles. I just recently bought my 4th tier 10. And I've been playing with premium for 99% of my battles. I barely use premium consumables or premium ammo and I play on a far higher level than the average player. And while I'm happy I'm ALWAYS making profits in my sessions, it's an extremely slow process.

Premium tanks are mostly boring to play for longer periods and anything below tier 7 is filled with institutionalized people I really don't want to play with nor against without a good reason, and I'll never in my life pay real money for your ridiculously overpriced credit packages and I pity any fool, rich or poor who does.

 

So, looking back. Give back those 50% credit bonuses on mid tiers to make me, and many others play more mid tiers again. Give us an incentive to bare with total idiocy and nerve wrecking mouth breathers that fill these battles while honoring their lifelong motto: "I plai 4 fan"
