A neat and fun special event for this weekend. Will you take your AMX 40 for a spin or do you prefer duck hunting?

M4A1 Revalorise is worth getting, it's mobility was buffed lately. The very high speed of the shell leads to very few misses on moving targets.

It is a some kind of joke? If yes, it isn't worth the resources. Next time if have an idea for weekend special, just ignore it.

Appreciate the idea.

 

To *really* get the event (or any similar event) rolling you probably would have to release a premium version of AMX 40 for every player for duration of the weekend. The cost of transferring an existing crew to a AMX 40 is just too high in either gold or experience.

Let's see.

 

No-one drives an AMX40 for fun, and that's not going to change. Now if WG had actually decided to buff that piece of garbage, I would be interested, but as it is:

 

The mission rewards aren't worth the aggravation of driving an AMX40. As to killing them, we do that anyway, if there is nothing more important to shoot at. I suppose I could take my old Matilda out for a spin, but honestly, it's not worth the bother.

 

As for the sale, am I supposed to be impressed? Most experienced players probably have a CDC and it's not a tank for newcomers. The FCM50 has suffered too much from powercreep and as for the Ravioli, give me a break. If I want to drive a Sherman, I'll go back to the Jumbo. Sorry WG, but this is pathetic.

actually premium offers are quite impressive... i mean Ravioli with 30 days premium and 2500 gold and garage slot just for the price of Ravioli and 2000 gold is good enough

Looks like WG couldn't be bothered to think up a special this week.

 

So the focus is on a single, tier 4 tank and there are two missions :-

 

1) Once per day, kill the tank, get x2 Xp ... max 3 times in the weekend

2) Drive the tank (if you have it, or you could buy it, if have a crew and equipment for it), in a platoon (who TF platoons at tier 4), win AND come top 10 all for .... wait for it .... x2 XP

 

I won't be playing tier 4 or any French tanks this weekend.

 

A few days ago I unlocked the AMX 50 100, so this special means I can sell the M4 45 for a discount and buy the 50 100 for full price - so another FAIL.

 

Over Priced bundles for under powered, under performing, legacy Prems that would be better bought with the excessive gold that always comes with the non-tech tree prems, if they were worth buying at all, now that the Match Making changes has made Pref MM valueless - No thanks.  I regret getting the FCM 50t, it's crap (pref MM isn't worth crap).  I'm glad I've never fallen for the CDC or ravioli.  I love meeting traditional French Prems in the field, they are so easy to kill.

 

x3 for first victory ... yeah whatever.
