Wait, is this the special which was described in the calendar as:

 

Block Quote

Luckily with this special offer, you will be able to get as close to rich as possible.

 

How are we getting rich out of maximum nine +25% 2h credit boosters?

And this is all while WoT Russian server gets a pretty awesome 1.5 trillion credits special 
https://worldoftanks...liona-kreditov/ (100k for 1 battle, another 100k for 15 battles)?

 

In comparison a few +25% (not even +50%) 2h credits personal reserves seems a bit weak / stingy, but I guess EU server is the cash cow for SerB's moon base, NA server the dying one which has to be propped up by giving out free premium tanks left & right and RU server the developer favourite which gets nice specials.

It is the exact special described there.

 

...

 

WG, you could have made the whole weekend a 25% income boosted special. That would have been nice. This is again another overhyped weekend special. 

 

Please, tell the copywriter who wrote this: "Luckily with this special offer, you will be able to get as close to rich as possible." to tone it down a bit. You make it seem like the whole weekend would be amazing, when actually you are just giving away just a few personal reserves.

 

But then again, maybe it's just me and I've become a bit too picky with my specials. Thanks for the reserves, but it still feels a bit on the "meh" side.

I'd rather NOT to see this event at all, as announced before, a slap on player's face. Never mind, we forum readers are just 0.01% of the players base, maybe?

This is exactly the problem. If the calendar would have said "You will be able to gain a few semi-useful personal reserves." then this would be fine. It's not much but better than nothing.

 

But the wording "as close to rich as possible" in combination with the quite great RU server special makes this a major letdown.

 

Still, better than nothing, so thanks for that.

I think it may be time to create an account on the RU server.

Well, 18h of +25% creditboost could net you a nice sum as well. But only if you actually play T8 premiums for 18 hours, which given the current crap-MM is so much fun it hurts, and also doesn't help you with any XP-grinds like for the 183. And of course almost nobody will actually be able to use them completely before the patch comes on wednesday, so the special doesn't help much earning the credits for the 215b like it was advertised at the start of this month.

1 Personal Reserve: +25% Credits for 2 hours per day = 3x = 6 hours but you will not get the full amount of credits since it will be weekend and you will lose almost all the games!

 

So my answer for you is "Stick them in your ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ :facepalm: i better play http://marioflash.org/ than wasting my time in this game. Wargaming is fully take a sh^t on us for real,they don't care about our "tears and rage",they never did and why this? Because we are a bunch of stupids who keep play this sick game...

I'm just wondering how it's not a shame WG staff  to literally spitting in the face to EU community every "SPECIAL" weekend
2x is NOT weekend special, it is EVERYDAY event,.and 25% is FUNNY to talking about... REALLY NOT WORTH TO PLAY.

 

p.s, As Oxid and Cobra6 said, I cannot remember when was the last time you offered discount on crew training and retraining!

The real problem with personal reserves is that they don't work in strongholds.

 

My clan does team stuff from 8ish to 10ish depending on how many players are on.

 

I get on at 7-7:30 and go off at 11-12ish.  If I activate PRs at 7:30 I might only get 2 or 3 games before I get a skirmish invite and I'm unlikely to get a whole hour (7 games).

After SHs I'm tired and often a little tipsy and so the PRs go unused.

 

This weekend will add up to 27 PRs to the 250+ I already have.

 

It's another example of WG appearing to give out something but it actually being of very little value to anyone.

Ok, I've been thinking of putting up "alternative specials" based on what they give but with a bit more Historical thought than the generic special given, so may I suggest.


The Drive on Moscow, 

October 1941, cold weather causes the muddy ground near Moscow to harden, allowing the German 4th Panzer Army advance against stiff opposition of Russian forces at the Mozhaisk defense line.

https://en.wikipedia...attle_of_Moscow

 

 

2x Crew XP

 

The tank kind of fits being a tier 6 prem German, except the Tiger was not in service at this time.

Thoughts?

"You know very well that when it comes to tanks, there is no such thing as too much money. Luckily with this special offer, you will be able to get as close to rich as possible"

 

nice way to build up hype and then spit in our face

 14–17 October: You know very well that when it comes to tanks, there is no such thing as too much money. Luckily with this special offer, you will be able to get as close to rich as possible.

 

For 2 weeks I have been looking forward to raking in credits with this special. Then you post the actual offer and it is pathetic. WGEU, you are either too stupid too know what words mean or you are building up false hope on purpose for some idiotic reason. Which is it?
