hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahah

 

PS .

 

first time first, but this really is a little bit late IMHO

 

PPS.

 

I have played a lot this weekend. Much more than I have for a very long time because I have managed to find myself at a loose end over the back holiday. I did the grind without tokens for the IS-6, super P, WZ-111, tog-II, type 62, Dicker max and the chi-nu-kai, not to mention the Stug IV and type 28 HTC so I know and accept mission grinds.

 

BUT I have not even got anywhere near 40 wins in a day, and have just about ended up with 40 wins over two busy tanking days. GJ to anyone who managed it as you are part of a very unique and small gaming club. There should be a medal in it.

So the special was already on this morning but there was no announcement until few hours later.

Come on guys, is it really that hard to announce it a day earlier because if I remember correctly they are planned a few weeks in advance. Some people would like to know in advance to plan their weekend and possibly play more, so please assign one person who can write a simple article each Friday and make sure it's posted in time.

 

It shouldn't be that difficult, right?

Is it just me or the mission name seem unfitting for a WW2 remembrance event?

 

Special: End of World War II

and mission name:

 

Let’s Win This!

 

So basically they are indirectly laughing at Germans who lost the war? (Just personal opinion)

Nothing special about this special. It doesnt even deserve weekend special tag, let along END OF WW2 special. STILL waiting on the FV201 mission that Ectar said will be given to EU players as well. You said there will be only one-time offer on the Berlin duo and Rudy, but....yeah...why i even bother...

There is nothing special about this special.

But that EU norm. So I am not complaining. I got used to that. :great:

Special not bad - 3X freee XP (15%), 50% more XP for good win...

 

But "Let’s Win This!" mission is total fail - 40 wins in top ten in one day - this is only for no lifers with good win rate. For average/casual player this is 12-15 hours of playing - this is crazy! If it was "Once per account" with no reset in 8 a.m., mission will be OK, but now???

 

P.S. And as usual, they are late to annonce. Paris WG EU at their best...

Great special again. Thanks WG.

 

How dare you tell me to stop whining! Every time there is a special, the only reason I come here is to whine as it makes me feel like part of the gang. Surely it is not beyond WG to have a special every single week which is better than the previous one?

Is this a mistake ? Should it not be 40 wins during the period ?

 

Otherwise : 40 wins in top 10 = 60 wins overall. 60 wins overall = 120 Games. 120 Games @ 8 min = 16 hrs gaming per day ?

Do you honestly think we will get anything good ever? WarGaming and WG EU hates us. If they would even show a bit of respect towards us, they would make better specials and give us better stuff.

Only a fool would believe we would get an FV201 mission. The WG officials are liars. They don't keep their promises.

at last, 3 hours after the event begin you "announce" it.....:facepalm:. Pls arrange it somehow that we see ALL parts of a weekend special in the game, like the missions are now, then I don't even care anymore about your [edited] ups..

 

and 40 wins a day? you serious? with a winrate of 50% you need 80 battles, average time in game is 7 minutes==>> you need to play ~9 hours straight to get 1xcoated optic and 1xtoolbox? Nope thx

 

the other stuff is pretty nice though, yet now very special  :)

It's even worse as you not only need to win, but also be in the top 10. In one game today, we won, but I got killed by arty - no top 10. In another one, I surviceed but was lowest tier and barely could do any damage - win, but no top 10 either/...

Yep - the "Lets win this"-Mission really is a no-brainer, i.e. someone with no brain had that idea. :facepalm:

 

Triple free XP though is a really nice bonus we haven´t seen before. :great:
