Nice special and also posted early, well done! As for the special offers, it's a good deal because basically you get 30 days of premium and the personal reserves for free. Shame I already have the IS6 and t54 proto...

I have a couple of Tier7s I want to buy so this will save me ~800K silver, which is nice.

 

I'll not bother with the mission though.  Too much grind, too little reward (100k for ~30 games in USSR Tier8+).  For anyone not running premium, the mission will be a loss maker.

Next weekend it's American tanks.  You can get the T34 or Super Pershing.

Is there some schedule for this that I could check out?

 

That being said, not much of a weekend special, bar the premium shop offers. I feel like they are getting worse every year. =(

+1 for being early.

 

Probably won't bother with the mission. Too much bother for too little reward.

Sale on the tanks is nice, though I don't have too many low-mid tier Soviet tanks I'd want anymore.

Maybe buy back the T-43. Still have too many Soviet crew just sitting in the barracks though.

 "Soviet tanks are just the thing if you can't be bothered with tactics and just want to plow through the enemy line like a Trans-Siberian steam engine!"

 

 

:great:

I'm hoping for a T8-10 discount special (I have 9 unlocked and ready to buy) but thinking that we are going to have these T2 - 7 nation specials for the next couple of months until all the nations are covered.

Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I read, you get 100k for 10 wins, per day. Which is 300k for 3 days (30 wins). And t8s are counted so where do you see credit loss here even on standard? Grindiness is relative, less than 20 battles so some have time some don't.

Think again, dude. You buy the tank for almost the regular price but you get 30 days premium and bonus xp.  Seriously, I think it's quite a nice special (that is if you forget the fact that the WG tank is priced as much as almost any other FULL GAME).

It is basically a type 59 with a (much) more accurate gun, better UFP and weaker turret (especially on the front) without pref. MM. You can sealclub cause difficulties for lower tier tanks and you can have nice duels with the same tier. Higher tier heavily armored vehicles are obviously not your priority. (However, the gun is accurate enough to snipe for weakspots) These days I prefer using it than the type 59.

You need 10 wins in the top 10 (top 2/3rd).  I estimate that I (and most people) are in the top 2/3rd about 2/3rd of the time, so to get 10 like that actually requires 15 wins.  And my win rate (and most peoples) is ~50%, so to get 15 wins requires about 30 games.  And yes, tier 8s are included that's why I wrote 8+ rather than 9+.

 

With breaks for drinks, toilet, phone calls, meals and interruptions from wife, kids, postman, etc., I play about 6 games an hour.  So 30 games is about 5 hours.  I very much doubt I could get the 10 wins in under 4 hours.  Add to this my own situation that I'm only grinding two tier 8+ Russian tanks (T54 and ST-I) and you can see that for me, it's just not worth the effort.

 

The 800k saving on the two tier 7s will take me <10 minutes.  100k will also take me 3-4 gates in the Patriot (~ 30 minutes).

Who would be dumb enough to buy the IS-6 or the T-54 proto now that the Obj. 252u and T-44-100 are going to be made available in the shop?
