This weekend, hop into your most trusty tank hunter, get out there and punch a couple of big holes into some enemy vehicles!

No discount for high tiers TD's? Shame.

I've been in the game for nearly 1 year and in that time this is easily the most lack lustre, least interesting weekend special I've seen.

 

  • Tier VIII and above only
  • Tank destroyers only

 

So this is only for old timers.  There will be plenty of players who don't have the tanks required to even take part.  I like TDs and got my very first Tier 8 just a few weeks ago.

 

  • 1 x Binocular Telescope
  • 5 x Personal Reserves: +25% XP for 1 hour

 

Spectacular, Binocs that can easily be moved from tank to tank (so having more than two sets is purely a convenience) and some PRs that give a whole 25% for a whole hour.  You really spoilt us there.

 

You should bring out some PRs that give 5% XP for 15 minutes to help us appreciate this special.

 

Even the week long sale is a pain in the arse.  I've got an empty Stur Emil sat using up a valuable garage slot.  I've been waiting about 3 weeks for the Top of the Tree to sell it for its full value.  Now I have to wait another week.

With an appropriate mod, you need only one set of Binocs, Camonet and Toolbox and it is moved automatically between tanks. It's incredibly easy, it's just like a spare set of these was always available in depot, so you can mount it on as many tanks as you need.

 

Well, I suppose you could always sell it...

Funny since discount is tier VII and below. So discount for lower tier TD's that are cheap anyway and nobody has problem buying them because you not losing money on lower tiers, but no discount for TD's that are needed for mission.

Maybe I will finally do my MT-15-3 mission with all the TDs ... but, to be honest, that Tier VIII minimum requirement in order to get the binocs and weak PR is kind of meh for the average players who don`t have the tanks.

 

In other news, a discount for those planning on buying low and mid tier TDs is not that bad.

 

 

Fingers crossed for next weekend special to be more special. :)

I think it means all Premium TDs below Tier VII are on discount for 30%

I was wondering when we would be told whats happening in october, I mean as usual the NA server has a list of their events for the whole of October posted 3 days ago.

Its nice that you found time to tell us whats happening in the first 4 days of the same month.

 

Love my TDs so happy to have an excuse to play them.

In a weekend with heavy top of the tree, they give us TD's specials...

One week of discounts? means one week of selling tanks with reduce costs...

And personal reserves with 25% bonus? and for only 1 hour? Where are those with 200% for 1/2 hours???

Cheapskates EU guys!!!

Every time I think about that mission I find myself in a battle using a tier IX medium and the opposition has a single JPE100. Just maybe there may be enough TDs around for a while to get that 2000 damage.

OK, so there is a high level TD balance problem, right? What to do.. what to do? First, abuse this and make a shitload of f' money with a premium tank (Scorpion), because there are players who actually wants to enjoy high tier TDs, make money with it, or just finish personal missions with less pain. Dicker and Grille can help to encourage more sale.

 

Make a patch where you tell the sneaky tank positions like that (new damage indicator). Already underwhelming tanks? Balance? Once again, who cares?

 

Don't solve the problem, use it! Brilliant!

 

And now you can win a Binocular with your new and shiny Scorpion? But the important thing, you really should play more with TD tanks, because...

 

What a f' joke!
