No it's a time four multiplier for first battle, instead of times two or three.

But yes that's it for this weekend.

Dunkirk this weekend, and the tank most used by the BEF was the Matilda, but no special linked to that.

Another skull? Didn't we just get one of those? I want one with two crossed pink rubber batons. 

 

edit: ribbed batons

OK, let me start with a disclaimer. WG do not have to GIVE us, or allow us to EARN, ANYTHING, but they frequently do so.

 

Having said that, the quality of weekend specials has been going to the dogs for quite a while now. Usually a weekend special meant a discount on a nation, or a vehicle type- almost EVERY weekend. Now, there is ToTT and just about nothing else other than Premium tank discounts most of the time.

 

Some other discounts have been coming around again and again, but I have been waiting for half-price crew training for MONTHS. I now have close to ten crews that need retraining for new/repurchased tanks. M7, S35 CA, STA-1, Lago, tier VI Swedish TD, AMX 50 100, T28 Prototype and probably, just for good measure, I was going to re-train the Czech crew for the T-34-100, which I don't own yet (YES, I KNOW!). That might be it, but I will be shocked it I have recalled all of them. I was going to train them all for Gold (or nearly all) but if WG are waiting for me to spend ALL of my remaining Gold on full-price crew training, they can go and whistle. Most of them will be trained with Credits, even though that isn't what I want.

 

The missions have been pants and I haven't even bothered trying for them most weekends through a combination of limited time and unlimited apathy. If I played long enough, I would probably complete them by accident in many instances, but deliberately? Nah! This weekend will be hard not to complete, obviously.

 

Like I said, they don't have to give us anything, but if WG are going to give us SOMETHING, then it may as well be something worth having. x4 will be nice, though. (And we've just had the T-34-85M, of course)

I've stopped bothering with clicking "Missions" button to avoid the vivid pictures in my head of ancient missions where we all were spoiled with gold and other useful stuff. It's all gone ( duh, mr. obvious )

Oh, yes they have to do this !

Because thats why they call WOT a F2P game.

 

And you forgot one important thing...or dont even know..

Other regions get much better events and things than EU.

Same game, same company...but different treatment. Why?

 

I think nobody had a problem if events were balanced between those regions...but when, for example, NA gets tier 5 tanks on this event and we get...a crap emblem...i really feel nasty and discriminated by WG.

And this after all other stupid changes wich on other regions are not implemented...(like new Tournament rewards)

How funny can some of you be sometimes..:)

 

Of course it didnt have a lot of things...because game was much smaller, younger. But it evolved and for this is perfect normally to offer something like this.

Game evolved because have players, and mostly of them PAY...and now WG what offer back to us? middle finger ! + a lot of premium offers, sure..:facepalm:

 

Like i said above...look on NA events...you will understand.

Dunkirk, BEF (to coincide with the opening of the film, not the actual anniversary of the event).

Battle of Arras May 1940 see https://en.wikipedia..._of_Arras_(1940)

Special tank (at price similar to Tiger 131) I think WG missed a trick in not selling a special Dunkirk skin Matilda. I give you, as used by the reating BEF-  The Goat;

Now, I wondered why WG had provided comprehensive instructions on how to view the tanks eligible for x4. The x4 icon is no longer shown. Is this temporary, or another sign of WG messing up changing things that don't need to be changed? Cough, cough, mission interface, cough! :amazed:

Look on the bright side, even a bot will win it within two or three games so maybe then the children who stink up weekend games will go outside and play.

How about crew retraining for half price, I have a fair number of tanks researched now, not planning on retraining for full price...
So pretty please with sugar on top.

Why would I do that ? I do not look how much a big mac costs in the USA when I buy one here in Europe.

The skull Dunkirk emblem is in the game, if you don't want to earn it you can just go ahead and buy it with gold. No x4 shown on any of my tanks, though.. no x anything actually...
