This weekend we are focusing on the Chinese school of tank design - break the enemy with brute force and enjoy some nice discounts and bonuses!

So we have X3 EVERY weekend nowadays??? WG you really want kids to progress up the tiers fast these days???

What, does their daddies buy them more prem tanks this way:

"Kid: look daddy, I´m already at Tier 8 of 10 in this game I started playing a few weeks ago, its so easy to play and to advance in. Daddy: oh my dear boy, you are so talented and must be really good in that game (), here, let me reward you with another T8 prem tank, where do I pay" :facepalm:

Or daddy thinks: "Damn, he is going to fast, in a few day's/weeks he doesn't like this game any more and I have to keep him bussy. Beter give him a few premium tanks to keep him happy so I will have more me time". (I really know some one who gives his kids premium tanks, gold and time for this reason :P)

You clearly don't have kids yourself and as an FYI, most of the "kids" on here with their T8 prem pay to win tanks are actually men in the 30-60 year old range !!

This special is very unappealing to me.  In previous weekend specials I bought 1 German, 2 Russian and 3 US tanks and so don't have an empty garage slots (and I'm not paying 300 gold for them).

I don't have any Tier 8 Chinese tanks so mission isn't even available to me, never mind worth the effort.

 

I might be tempted by the Type 62, if it was available for gold but it wont be, so you can keep your pixels and I'll keep my 30 Euros.

 

The x3 is nice but not a particularly valuable bonus (it saves 1 game per tank - Wooo).

But lets cut the sarcasm and point out the real question that was in there somewhere: Why do WG want to speed up the progress for players this hard nowadays, X3 every weekend, X5 really often, xp and other multipliers, tooning multipliers and what else? This didnt exist a few years ago at all, back then we really had to grind the tanks, and the amount of XP needed is the same.

 

Do the math, you need 100k xp, and average 1k base xp every game, how long will it take:

- without any extras

- with X3 + 200% personal reserves + tooning bonus + I probably missed some more bonuses there are available.

I seriously cannot believe that there are people who actually complain about having 3x weekend specials, discounts or any other events that would be beneficial to players who wish to progress faster through the tech trees. Not to mention the way in which  their discontent is expressed on the forums. This, and I am referring to Wargaming's specials, is what the game precisely needs to keep their current player base and to increase it. More events, but good ones, please! I have to admit that the game is quite boring without them during the midweek. As for influx of bad players during the weekends, you'll just have to suck it up and do your best (Note that i'm not claiming to bea good player, please). WoT learning curve is difficult to climb, but it is so much easier to pick up the pace with YouTube content created by some of the best players out there.

Of course, there is a number of issues, repelling new players, that require attention, like the matchmaking sistem (i like what WG has in store for us on the sandbox), tank statistics s balancing and generation of new content, as in maps,  adding tech trees and expanding existing one, but, hopefully, that will be resolved in the not so distant future (Right?). 

 

Peace!

I would buy Type 62 for 19.99 but since it's bundled with gold for 29.99 I will pass :(

Already have 5k gold waiting for crew retraining discounts and more than a month of premium time...

This, IMHO, is getting to be a bigger problem than x3 or x5 XP.

FFS people, around new year you all got pissed off for not having more days with x3 or x5 and now you have something against it... This forum is full of morons.

Morons may be putting it a bit strong, but a classic example of how you can never please everyone, this.

So, serious question - is there much point in getting the Type62?

I don't have any Chinese tanks, but like the idea that I can get this and (with the bundled gold) get most of a type 64 through in-game

Can I use these both effectively as trainers and in Strongholds - or is it a risky strategy with changes to light tanks coming up shortly??


 

Many thanks,

Yeah im surprised people here manage to complain about literally everything.... 

Sure i complain about a thing or two in good time... but complain about too many 3x bonusses?? For an average player like me that means 2~3k free exp per tank during the time of the bonus. That's hardly a game breaking advantage. And the guy that complained about kids advancing too fast.. i imagine they benefit even LESS from te 3x events.... the 3x events benefit awesome players like him the most.

Not a fan too when they bundle it... but this was the reason why i didnt get any extra gold during the paypal discount... Since i knew i'd have gold from bundles like these anyway..
