ALL players from EU servers should stop playing for 1 or 2 weeks....then I bet we will get some "real" missions and discounts. If all of us play daily why should they give us good missions?

 Am I right or not?

WG have you stopped discounting tier 5-6-7 vehicles? I've not seen those discounts for ages? :unsure:

Please WG why no themed weekend specials? These " WEEKEND SPECIALS" just strike me a lazy idea with no thought.

 

Thanks to wikipedia...

Battle of the Imjin River

 

"Though minor in scale, the battle's ferocity caught the imagination of the world", especially the fate of the 1st Battalion, The Gloucestershire Regiment, which was outnumbered and eventually surrounded by Chinese forces on Hill 235, a feature that became known as Gloster Hill. The stand of the Gloucestershire battalion, together with other actions of the 29th Brigade in the Battle of the Imjin River, has become an important part of British military history and tradition.

 

 

The deployment of UN forces meant that the 29th Brigade, with its four battalions, had to cover a front of 12 miles (19 km).[23] Gaps between units had to be accepted because there was no possibility of forming a continuous line with the forces available. "Brigadier Brodie determined to deploy his men in separate unit positions, centred upon key hill features"[28] On the left flank, the Glosters were guarding a ford over the Imjin, known as Gloster crossing; the RNF were deployed near the centre, around two miles northeast of the Glosters; the Belgians, occupying a feature called Hill 194 on the right, were the only element of the 29th Brigade north of the river. Their connection with the rest of the brigade depended on two pontoon bridges about half a mile apart. These bridges connected the Belgians with Route 11, the 29th Brigade’s main line of supply and communication, and thus made vehicular movement between the north and south banks of the river possible. The Royal Ulster Rifles served as the brigade’s reserve and were deployed along Route 11 (see map showing the situation at 9 a.m., 25 April, below for different routes in the area).[28][23][29]

 
Chinese Spring Offensive, April 1951

The scattered deployment was one aspect which complicated the defense of the 29th Brigade’s position. Another was the lack of heavy artillery. Fire support was provided by 45 Field Regiment, RA, equipped with 25 pounders, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel MT Young, and by 4.2 inch mortars of 170 Heavy Mortar Battery, RA. No heavier artillery support was available.[28][30] Further support was provided by Centurion tanks of C Squadron8th Hussars, under the command of Major Henry Huth and by 55 Squadron, Royal Engineers. However, defensive preparations were not carried out very extensively because the British expected to hold the position for only a short time. Neither minefields, deeply dug shelters nor extensive wire obstacles had been constructed. The British position on the Imjin river "was deemed safe" but vulnerable in case of an attack.

During the night, as the Glosters’ B Company faced numerous attacks, the Chinese 188th Division crossed the Imjin and attacked the Fusiliers and the Royal Ulster Rifles on the right of the brigade’s line. The 187th Division also engaged the brigade’s battalions on the right, while the 189th Division kept up the pressure on the left.[39] Most dangerous for the unity of the 29th Brigade was the Chinese deep penetration of the line between the Gloucestershire Regiment and the Northumberland Fusiliers, cutting off the Glosters. To counter the Chinese attack and protect the Glosters from being completely surrounded, the Philippine 10th Battalion Combat Team (BCT) was temporarily attached to the 29th Brigade. A combined force of M-24 tanks of the 10th BCT and Centurions of the 8th Hussars supported by infantry reached a point 2,000 yards (1,800 m) from Hill 235 on 24 April. However, the column failed to make contact as the lead tank was hit by Chinese fire and knocked out, blocking the route and making any further advance against heavy resistance impossible. At this point, according to an official American narrative of operations, "the brigade commander considered it unwise to continue the effort to relieve the Gloucester Battalion and withdrew the relief force".

 

In a tribute to the 8th Hussars, General John O'Daniel, commanding the US 1st Corps, stated: "...In their Centurions, the 8th Hussars have evolved a new type of tank warfare. They taught us that anywhere a tank can go, is tank country: even the tops of mountains."

caloo78 i do agree tho , cant see something special ... and if nothing so special why dont u include crew training 50% at least, i keep checking NA server and EU looks so poor if you compare , i mean so poor.. I pay and play the game and i enjoy it for real, but the thing is that if NA does so many stuff and EU doesnt !? it kinda seems not fair for EU players , at least dont give the permission to NA to do so many stuff cause we EU players feel so unfair.. In anyway last year was the WZ mission, is it anything coming up ? anyone knows ?

Couldn't agree more !  After unlocking a couple of T9 TD's and having another couple of crews to move around this would be ideal

Nothing Stopping you going and playing on the NA Server and enjoying the "Better Life" over there Hun ! :)

 

Or you can just accept the fact that the EU will never get as good a deal as the others until the player (Money) base drops dangerously low !

It appears they tricked us, I figured myself to get one last premium tank before wasting any more coin on this game. I got some gold thinking there would be some more discounts this weekend as there have always been with the anniversary specials. Alas I was wrong, missed opportunity WG/Comm team to get some goodwill back from the community.
