So I was thinking to myself, you know the way weekend specials currently run from Saturday morning until Monday evening, well for many, Monday is the start of a weeks work. When they get home Monday evening, they are tired and a bit fed up, not really interested in doing much. But Friday however, most are finishing work, are very happy and have that "yay weekend!" buzz(and money)) so wouldn't it make more sense to move the starting and finishing times from Friday morning to Sunday evening instead? 

I know I'd certainly enjoy arriving home on some soggy ol dreary Friday evening over winter and being able to have that tank discount right now and being able to play that tank immediately along with whatever else is to be had with the weekend special in effect, a X3 first win perhaps or reel off an evening of battles with a X2 crew xp per battle in effect.

 

Might be just me though so I'll attach a Poll out of interest, I know there are those that work very different shifts and so on. It's a simple adjustment that WG could certainly implement quick and haste free so if there's a large support for this, I'd imagine it will happen but maybe most players are happier to have their weekend specials as they are, ending Monday evening. Let's see. :)

Well, while most of the workers have saturday and sunday at home, some categorys work during weekend and are close on monday (like hairdresser). So having weekend special last untill monday is good.

I was a bit surprised by the Ranked mode running monday-sunday

also the monthly event last month had weeklong missions running friday-thursday

 

I would like some more standardization please.

Yes! I can vote for both options.

 

I want them to run from Friday and until Monday depending on what shift I am on.  I would also like them to run Tuesday to Thursday when those are my rest days.

For those of us that work Mon-Fri, the timing of specials is largely irrelevant.

I think they changed it because people asked it to be changed.

 

There's two reason for it.

1. People doing weekend jobs could not benefit from specials. Most of weekend workers have Monday off, so they can benefit now.

2. Lot of people are tired after week and are doing other things (going to bar, spending time with missus/kids) than playing WoT on Friday evenings. Friday evening is not prime time for WG same way as Saturday and Sunday are. 

 

With Saturday - Monday specials everyone get something, and most don't lose that much. At worst 24/7 players go from one good evening and two good days to two good days and one bad evening while non-weekend players go from "can't participate" to "enjoy one day of specials". Doesn't take much thinking to see benefits for WG.

I'd like to keep Monday open, so I can have a final day push on whatever mission/event there is on, w/o schoolkids and people of mentally challenged status on my team. They seems to be fewer of them on between Monday and Thursday :B

I prefer having the monday. I'm often gone the entire day on friday. And I always forget about the monday being part of the special, so it's a nice extra surprise.
