Ooo la la, zut alors.

 

x3 is the only thing of interest to me.

 

Expensive bundles on already massively over priced DLC. - No thanks.

To be honest i'm glad the missions are really bad because after the marathon frenzy I'll gladly welcome regular old x3 weekend stupidity instead of that insanity...

Thanks for the missions! Free consumables (especially those expensive ones) are always great. :great:

Sadly I am away this weekend, but good luck to those doing the missions. They are really easy and at least some low tier ones as well. :)

 

But, why do the discounts stop at tier 7 WG?

 

And where is the Lorraine 40t you were teasing us about?

I love these "offers" and "sales"

 

FCM50t, normal price €37, bundle it with useless cr@p and ballast that no one asked for, THEN deduct ~25% (new price €34) and act like it's a bargain :teethhappy:

 

How about:

FCM50t, normal price €37, discount 25% so new price€27,75? You know......an actual discount?

 

 

Cobra 6

Yeah, err, gg, I spose.

 

Wait, 20k XP and top 10.  Top 10 is about 2/3rds of the time and most players (like you and me) earn an average of ~700/800 XP per game.  So 20K XP will take us (20k/750) / (2/3) = 40 ish games.

 

40 games to earn 5 coffee that could cost 100k silver to buy and deliver 50k silver when sold.

 

Alternatively, a handful of games in a premium tank ...

I would add to that a discount for those prems in the tech tree as well. I mean they are not really discounted if their prices are the same in game, right?

x3's count towards the 20k, as do personal reserves iirc. and if you're bottom 5 1/3 of the time then tbh the mission will and should take much longer. (btw your average xp isn't  700/800 per game, it's 488)

 

all in all easy missions that can be done each day for a total of 900'000 credits worth of prem consumables. (45 Coffee in total)

be fair... over the past 1,000 games his average XP is 642...

though even at 488 with a premium account he'd get 488*1.5=732xp per game
