Is the special for next month the one listed on the announcement page? German tanks get a X2 bonus? That's really it?

Oh noow you tell me what these missions are actually for...too bad I didn't do it last weekend...well then I guess I'll have to pay 10€ to get that token...Wait a minute.....NO! Go [edited] for this move WG. The end mission rewards are garbage for the effort (unless you usually play that much).

It is a lot faster than twice as fast... The reward for that amount of grind isn't huge, but for players that play a lot (or are grinding German exclusive!) then it could be well worth it.

I just wonder what they are going to do about the fact that the first mission didn't seem to give out a token (something they ignore to talk about in all request, but you call one of them a twizzler and they answer straight away to say they are lovely people)...

 

Wait..how are these mission rewards good if someones grinding German tanks? Think about this for a second...what are the chances someone has T6-10 German tanks that they haven't finished grinding? If your definition of "finished" is that you've progressed to the next tank in the line then the chance is 0%. Only if you go around researching modules on lower tier tanks will you be able to fully use these rewards.

 

Realistically to maximize these mission rewards someone has to be grinding pretty much every German tank line and simultaneously be on T9 with all of them. 95% of T10 tanks don't even have modules to research. Remember this all has to be done within 2 days so the likelihood of actually getting useful Battle XP in 1 tank line (in terms of progress towards the next tank) is VERY slim. And it'll use at most 2 of these mission rewards.

 

What it boils down to is, and it's pretty clever by WG, is that people will get the bonus XP on already elited tanks which they'll then spend gold on to convert to Free XP.

The gold for doing the stripes is welcome, but the unlocked missions for next month are just a big dissapointment for 99% of players. And if you plan to do same for every country......just consider scrapping the idea unless you want to dissapoint more than those 99%....

Pretty sure there's the SU-122-44 and the AT-15...although you're not far off.

The only weird thing about this is that WG markets a "fail-safe token"  (in case you miss one weekends grind) for 9,99e. Sure these missions will make grinding the German tech tree almost twice as fast, but I still find the fail safe token totally overpriced.

The weekend specials with discounts and gold are nice... thumbs up ... but the October mission with the German tanks is a bit meh.... certainly not worth buying a token if you miss it....

Discount on tier VII premiums. Great.

Are there any other avaiable apart from Su-122-44 and AT-15A ???? No.

Yes the fail safe tokens seem a bit wrong.  That's all I can really say, the free gold gave me an excuse to play tanks, instead of warships for a bit of a weekend.

Well, at least that has saved me the other of logging on this weekend, now that I know the effort to reward ratio is beyond a joke. I wonder how many people will be appealing for refunds on the fail safe token, I would be, but I didnt buy one because funnily enough I expected this BS. It's not really a secret that WG forgets the EU server exists most of the time. Although if I was running a company who has lost over 50% of it's playerbase on one of it's servers in the past year, I would be trying everything in my power to keep the players that remain playing. Driving away consumers with crap like this reduces profits.

20 x2s in any tank would have been better than this German tank, tier dependant reward...

c'mon guys, it's not like this one takes much effort, just play your normal games and you should be able to do it easily, a bit of free gold helps and if you happen to have a few german tanks then all the better...
