Why not train crew to 90% with credits? With x5 XP you get them to 100% pretty fast.

 

Yes, that is most likely what will happen. Really had my hopes up for this special though.

We all did.

 

They built some hype for this special only to somehow disappoint us all in the end.

 The quintuple XP multiplier starts one day later, on 24 August at 07:00 CEST (UTC+2), with the same end date.

 

The fail is strong...

Did your train of thought stall at the station or something?

 

If you're worried to continue grinds, how the [edited]can you not worry about 5x?

 

Yes, but when all you tanks are elited and you want to start grinding the next one in the line but you have no crew, then what?  x5 will help crew training as well I guess but it is not going to retrain my crew is it? 

True, better not play at all when the 5x hits and wait for a crew train discount instead.:facepalm:

 

Some people...I can't even...

Why so soon, its not even noon yet???

But I must say, the "goodie" bag is PATHETIC and the whole "special" is nothing that special as was hyped about.

 

And they LIED: "The quintuple XP multiplier starts one day later, on 24 August at 07:00 CEST (UTC+2), with the same end date". This is NOT what you said: "23 August – 28 August: Same as every year, we are at gamescom, one of the largest gaming conventions in the world! If you cannot visit us at our booth, we've got you covered with a huge special event: x5 XP for the first victory"

 

So first you start to post lies about upcoming things, whats next???

Only 4 hours late with the announcement.

 

The special is pretty cool, but they built so much hype and failed so bad with the announcement and delay of the X5 that ... it really feels like a let down. And I really don't want to be a hater now.

X5 is a fine special to accumulate free XP - just launch booster and see it grow like crazy. That is if you have the patience to do your daily X5s on multiple vehicles, at the time when the usually band of brain-dead zombies storm the servers.

Haha, yes, because x5 is the most amazing thing ever, right? ;)

 

Dont waste your time and energy getting upset about things like this, you are angry because there is no x5, yet. I am disappointed because there will most likely not be any crew retraining discount. I never said I will not play.

I suspect when they reset the server they forgot the X5 bit and have to wait for a server reset.

My apologies for the late news announcement and fail regarding the special date, with Gamescom we are a little understaffed and we had trouble getting everything prepared in time :hiding:

 

I will make sure that your feedback is heard by the right people, but it is not possible to make any changes to the XP multiplier special at this late time :(

https://worldoftanks...eek-august2017/ says 23 August – 28 August will have x5 XP. Where is it?!
 

 

The XP multiplier is only starting tomorrow, the rest of the special is active from this morning.

Was it planned to start later, or did someone screw it up?

If x5 starts one day later, it should also end one day later.
