Double crew XP and a free garage slot. What's more to ask for? 3x-XP-specials attracting more idlers, AFKers and 42%-WR-bobs?

I like this one, it's decent, good for my crews and not too much of an incompetence-magnet. like more spectacular specials. But of course, feel free to wipe your tears on your computer screen.

 

Edit: For the record: the special is still too attractive, as it is drawing thousands of terrible players, the worst which the internet has to offer, onto the servers. The amount of 5:15 defeats today has been unbearable.

So, no need to whine because of a "weak" special, but you may cry out loud for WG making the game so incredibly unrewarding and frustrating. Well done... not.

Wargamming, very poor weekend special. Are you paying your staff well for this kind of lack of creativity.

Dour non-imaginative drivel.

No, it's players who expect a little effort. for example what could we have  this weekend? Hmm... quick WWII encyclopedia search...  

 

Battle of Monte Cassino, January to May 1944, they could include some historic information about the battle, (From wikipedia) 

 

"II Corps in the mountains north of Cassino

It became U.S. 34th Division's task (joined by 142nd Regiment of 36th Division) to fight southward along the linked hilltops towards the intersecting ridge on the south end of which was Monastery Hill. They could then break through down into the Liri valley behind the Gustav Line defences. It was very tough going: the mountains were rocky, strewn with boulders and cut by ravines and gullies. Digging foxholes on the rocky ground was out of the question, and each feature was exposed to fire from surrounding high points. The ravines were no better since the gorse growing there, far from giving cover, had been sown with mines, booby-traps and hidden barbed wire by the defenders. The Germans had had three months to prepare their defensive positions using dynamite and to stockpile ammunition and stores. There was no natural shelter, and the weather was wet and freezing cold.

By early February, American infantry had captured a strategic point near the hamlet of San Onofrio, less than a mile from the abbey, and by February 7 a battalion had reached Point 445, a round top hill immediately below the monastery and no more than 400 yards (370 m) away. An American squad managed a reconnaissance right up against the cliff-like abbey walls, with the monks observing German and American patrols exchanging fire. However, attempts to take Monte Cassino were broken by overwhelming machine gun fire from the slopes below the monastery. Despite their fierce fighting, the 34th Division never managed to take the final redoubts on Hill 593 (known to the Germans as Calvary Mount), held by the 3rd Battalion of the German 2nd Parachute Regiment, the dominating point of the ridge to the monastery."

 

 

Then you could put some spin on the discounts and such around this theme. Calling it WEEKEND SPECIAL Is just Lazy.

 

That is my issue with it. 

 

 

Edit: Want more tanks? Next weekend they could have The Battle of Chipyong-ni

JEEEEZ; super PATHETIC:

 

WG, you have given me some 50 FREE garage slots during the years, give me tanks WORTH filling them also, meaning NEW tanks to play or this game is dying, without new tanks to play there is nothing to come back for.

It would be great if you'd get 1 garage slot for every 20 battle in first 5, repeatable during the weekend!

Yep, Not a big enough draw to bring the "Freebie Grabbers" out in force.

 

Should be able to do some good grinding and the Crew x2 is always welcome. I have several crews close the forth skill that it will help.

I've seen midweek specials/bonuses that are better than this.

Please WG, at least try and make an effort to show you actualy care about the game and not making up some weird specials or using all your time to find a way to trick people into using more money in your game. As people mention there is alot of history from WWII that could be made into a special. It's not the rewards, it's the lack of imagnitaion that bothers me. How can the people who work at WGEU be proud of their job?.
