x2 on every top 10 win,

half price garage slots and equipment.

 

Not as stupendous as the christmas special, but no complaints really.

 

Some advice to my fellow tankers ...

 

Spend ALL your spare cash of useful equipment, even if you don't need it right now.  Buy rammers, vents, optics, GLDs, verticle stabs, nets, binocs and tool boxes.  Buy as many as you can. Spend all your silver.

If you ever need the cash back you can sell the equipment for the price you paid for it.  If you buy a new tank you'll already have the equipment you need for it and wont have to pay full price or wait for the next discount special.

 

There's no downside.

does the 2x stack with holiday ops bonus AND personal reserves? so 3.5x for every win (if you're top 10)?...that is pretty crazy if true

Nice special, 2x XP is always welcome and so is equipment discount.

Yes! Equipment discount! Finally I can equip some 10 tanks I acquired over the past 2 months.

Agree with you up to a point; I have 15 mil available and going to spend around 4 mil for the tanks I have. Buying an extra 11 mil in equipment seems a bit overkill to me, since I need to keep some credits aside for the tanks I am currently grinding. I will however buy the equipment for those tanks so once I acquire them I can slap them straight on and roll out!

​Still no AMX 13 57, nor Type 62. #Walletclosed. :trollface:

 

Good stuff! I have half a dozen of tanks unequipped. Not even counting the holiday special reward discounted ones.

As usual, I can't buy discounted equipment, because I have to re-install the whole game...

 

Perfect timing, WG...

 

When your game is going to be as "normal"?

And that's going to take you 4 days?

That goes without saying..... :)

 

But we do have the OPatriot on sale again, a tank which we've seen what? 5 times this year? Really worthy of being on sale *yet again* right?....

It's not that hard.

Luckily Patriot drivers are usually so bad that it's pretty much the easiest "op" premium tank to kill. Also, it doesn't do that well in tier 10 games because of the peashooter gun.

Good Morning Commanders. Patriot it's now avaible on Premium Shop WOT. Do you recommend to buy it ???   I dont have any American Premium Heavy Tank, and I think Patriot it's near to OP.....so do you think it's perfect to train my American crew or wit for a T34 offer???   Now I have T29 and I climming up to Amercian Heavies line. 

Thanks guys.
