Oh Wow ! What a spectacular Special ! I can't wait until tomorrow for it to start, I am going to have to set my alarm early to get a good start ! 

 

Spoiler

 

Important: Please note, both the T-34-85 and T-43 are excluded from the discount on Tier VI - VII Soviet tanks

 

So All V - VII are on discount apart from those that aren't ! :rolleyes:

Can't we have like a duo-event? Y'know, celebrate the American independence and Kursk. A.k.a discount for not only Germans and Russians. But also British and Americans to make it a bit more fair?

I feel rather dissapointed that I saved up 2 million credits just for this occasion to buy the T20 and Cromwell when they're on discount, apparently they're not.

30% discount on all except T-34-85 and T-43?

Spoiler

 

I mean... why? Am I missing something here? Were there special circumstances that prohibited the T-34-85 and T-43 from participating in the Battle of Kursk?

I don't get it.

 

EDIT: nvm, got the answer. It's conflicting with Top of The Tree thingy.

stuff about other servers getting better stuff

 

Nice, EU servers get the $h|t end as always, thanks!

 

The NA situation is easily explained because WG have to work much harder there because WOT's isn't popular in America like it is in Europe. But in relation to how the Russians get more specials & freebies (and where they're the same specials & freebies they get them earlier), something occurred to me.

 

Quoted on Ritasblog, Storm commented that the RU players enjoy seeing all the aggro on the EU forum caused by us getting worse specials. Maybe WG taking the [edited] out of EU makes them more popular in RU, helps with their brand, PR, and so recruitment & retention on RU. Maybe WG treating EU relatively badly is entirely on purpose and part of their home market strategy?

I think it's not to do with the event surrounding the tank's participation at Kursk,  but rather because of the Object 140 Top of the Tree Special. Both T-43 and -34-85 are already on 30% discount, so they, technically they're  on discount, just not because of the event.
