This is the first special where I've thought "is that it?"

 

Just a discount on heavies?  No extra skills/XP bonus?  No equipment or training discounts?

 

This makes me a sad panda.

 Unleash the biggest, heaviest machines onto the battlefield and enjoy the sound of puny lightweights getting crushed as you roll through them like the ruthless battering ram of doom that you are.

 

Vs:


On a more serious note, next week's medium event will probably have vertical stabilizer as reward, and SPG event the week after that, gun laying drive.

Probably.

Wasn't the whole idea of shifting to icons from clearly listing what the discounts are to make it simple and easy to see what bonuses & discounts are included in that special?

(personally I still need to mouseover to see exactly what you mean with the hieroglyphs)

 

Because now you seem to have started to hide relevant bonuses in the wall of text.

Last weekends "Light tank focus" was missing the crew xp bonus -icon and now "Heavy camp focus"  is missing the increased xp for the first win - icon.

  • Tier VIII and above only
  • Heavy tanks only

 

I have 3 vehicles that meet this criteria, all Russian and I've completed the Russian part of the T44-100 marathon, so nothing for me.

 

£6 off a £39 tank.  Yeah awesome. :-/

Who would have thought that T34 is not a heavy so no discount applies to it. :D

And yeah, kinda waiting for KV-5 and TOG II, even though both are pretty mediocre.

I missed that bit.  I was looking at the super secret icons.  Even so, the saving on a tank won't even cover the cost of essential equipment, and I was thinking of spending actual gold for crew retraining for the first time ever if it had been discounted.

 

I'm still a sad panda.

3x XP, always welcome.

 

Don't really need anything else at the moment.

KV-5 mediocre? It's overpowered as [edited]. It only sucks for the people who absolutely refuse to shoot gold and rather lose their credits by bouncing off AP shells. It requires some gold rounds to work but I still make very steady profit with mine and it's an absolute beast.

Agreed, plus as good a time as any for me to get off my *edited* and get that IS-2 (Chinese) that I've been meaning to get for a while now.

I like my heavy tanks, but this is just pointless and with little challenge to it for not much reward.

I don't recall having much problems playing against KV-5, the thing is a size of a barn and has a speed of a snail. Track and you can run circles around it all day. Maybe the players I've played against in their KV-5s were just noobs.
