This is actually nice speciall at last!


Nice amount of extra XP for your tanks..
Tho the "survive the battle" makes it bit more difficult, but it is very doable.

 

But seriously.
There could have been some discount offers too,
but at least it is bit better than the previous 2 months of "copy&paste" chain specials.

 

Edit:

Hehehe. I was sure I will get heavily negrepped for saying my personal opinion about this. =)

...the thing about crew experience...is that it isn't linear up the skills... So once your past first skill, not to mention like beginning on fourth...15k crew exp won't raise it a single percent :/

 

Plz on specials like this rather let it be tank exp?

Even with first skill it takes 18,670 to raise it from 98% to 100% so it's basically less than 2% with any skill: epic special :trollface:

I do like specials where the crews are the focus.  I'll be able  to lift a crew through the last stages of first skill if I work this right.

2nt skill it would take you from 0% to 33%

2nt skill would take you from 98% to 98%, but your not far from 99%!!!

 

WG didn't mention a tier limit (I am guessing tier 5 or 6?) but if there is no limit then it would be good for people with lower primary skills. 96.5% -> 100%

 

Just be sure to be in one of your 6 crew tanks and not a 3 crew tank ;)...

not sure if crew in wrong tank type would take a penalty, but it could be worth moving crews from the wrong tanks over to a large crew tank ... If there is no penalty.

None. You will have to buy it with gold.

Seriously who is in charge of weekened specials for EU cluster? Don't you exchange ideas with the other regions?

 

Meanwhile in RU cluster for the same missions you get GLD, Rammer and Camo net and 50% off camo and emblems and garage.

 

 Asia has M4 Improved and Amx 13 57 in the prem shop

 

US cluster with Amx 1357 in the shop, 30%more xp for every battle for "doing damage to 2 tanks" during battle....

 

 

I can chip in if you need to replace that broken copy/printer with the weekend specials running through it. The print file seems to have gotten stuck. Come on now. Where is the incentives? Where is the "for the players"? At least after the Rubicon fiasco you would come to expect something to make the player base happy again. Something I do expect is the same old same old "Every cluster is independent...bla bla... something will come later..."

A Weekend so special it has no theme or name, it's the "Weekend Special"... Well done WG some hard thinking went into that.

Basically next to Nothing dressed as Something..

Double crew training for all games hasn't been in a special for what 8/9 weeks?

Perhaps they realised that a lot of players dont need a premium tank as a crew trainer with that running regularly and have stopped giving it to try selling more premium tanks

This tiny derisory boost will appeal to players who don't understand the ludicrously high experience requirements to improve crew experience beyond  the first 30% of the first skill

The X3 for 1st victory is face it ...Only a 50% boost over the standard 1st victory for a SINGLE game in each vehicle-not really something to get too excited about.

AND NOW THE BIGGEST (VERY LIKELY) NEWS...

EVERY special for rest of the month has EXACTLY the same description as this rubbish in the event calendar with no mentions of ANY DISCOUNTS...

Thats right We're facing 3 WEEKS of this face-slap...

I wont even log onto RU/NA to look what they're getting.. Its bound to be  better than this-if they put this special out on RU they'd have to hire bodyguards!

X3 logo's going be getting pretty worn out by now! There are other weekend special logos you can use and other buttons on the keyboard other than Ctrl,C and V.

Wouldnt double crew training for every game be a lot better for that? We used to have it on this server.....

Maybe they keep it low and sort of modest because next week there is Nov 11th?

End of WW1 anyone?

Just sayin'...

Once again WG EU just can't be arsed to do any work and try to create a "Special"  

 

"Just give them x3 for the first battle and be Bolloxed to them ! , They think we are nice at the moment due to caving in over inscriptions and emblems ! Right back to the wine bar ! "

I refer you to my post above and the observation about the event calendar...However if you want to engage in wishful hopeful thinking good luck I hope all your dreams come true.

Truth is we do get let down a lot on this server
