Ok, here's the thing - I'm not normally given to complaining about free stuff but seriously now WG, if you want me to spend many hours enduring the torture that is weekend games, you need to make these 'specials' a little more enticing.:)


 

To put it simply, the rewards are simply not worth the time & effort required to attain them.:sceptic:


 

You want me to spend the weekend playing your game instead of another, then you need to offer a bigger carrot.:coin:


 

Enough of this cow chutney for the weekend - All Achievements on DOOM on Ultra Hard should be mildly less stressful that this.


 

Whine over - gl today & tomorrow gentlemen.

Actually, after getting today's 3 +25% credit boosters very easily, I think the special is fine.

It is better than nothing. It's just 3/10 tops. 2nd worst special I remember this year.

Its the EU server. We will get more XP boosters.

Isn't the reward 9 personal reserves for attaining a bit of XP?

 

A fair reward for the very little time that you have to play.

Yes...but..what annoys people is that the EU get far less bonuses than the RU and NA servers.

Dude, the special is easy AF. 

 

If getting 7500xp 3 times is too much for you ... I have no words.

I think you should play the game because you want to play the game.

 

Not play the game just because you want some small bonuses for a game you apparently don't want to play..?

I'd have played anyway, and in fact without an OTT special the gameplay seems to have been much better.

Actually we´re getting trade in premiums. Maybe some boosters on top of that, but I wouldnt hold my breath.

While I don't get too excited about a few 25% credit boosters, they have more effect than what you might think - since the 25% comes on top of the gross credit gain, before repair and ammo costs are calculated.

 

3x7,5K XP is not a lot if there's no tier restriction (doesn't look like it) and premium account/boosters also count (they usually do even for the salty marathons). Heck, buy some low-tier tanks and go club if you lack tanks to do the double in.

You misunderstand me sir - the reward is cack & not worth wasting any time on at all.

Then, my friend, you have been very lucky indeed.

Many one-sided battles for me - nearly an hour and a half to get a couple of cack reserves - just not worth the effort.

We are richer than RU.

We are more hooked and less promiscuous with other games than NA.

It is therefore a sensible business decision by WG to reward us less than RU and NA.

If you don't like it, make an account on one of the other servers (I have accounts on RU and NA), it's not difficult.

Yup, easy peasy lemon squeasy. My only issue with it is that they over-hyped it in the monthly sneak peek. 

Otherwise, meh ... thanks for the easy reserves I got by grinding my tanks. :) They are not great, but not that bad either.

I don't understand the constant whine about specials. Currently we get at least one awesome special per month and there have been very attainable marathons for like half the year.

 

I guess people have the memory capability of a chicken. It takes only one week after a massive discount weekend and generally the whining will start the moment an "average" special begins.

This weekends special is fine imo. Double crew XP every battle is nice. I prefer them above the better first victory multipliers. Feels like weekend matches are better too when people are training their crews instead of unloading every tank they got to get the victory bonus.

Weekend mission is nice too. Perhaps not the best reward; but it's easy to get when playing. Rewards many type of playerd, from casual folks who play only some games; getting the reward to more hardcore players who go for all 3 completitions.
