Well there was me thinking I could get a nice 50xp in the mission to upgrade the TVP, but no WG money grabing *edited* that you are make it prem tanks only.

 

This isn't a mission, it's *edited* scam to sell gold so all us idiots convert it, in the conveniently timed better conversion rate that will happen soon, just by coincidence of course.

This is news for you? It's not like they haven't done this "special" half a dozen times already.

What is the event?  When I saw it mentioned on the forums Thursday, I checked the news page and couldn't find any mention of it.  I wasn't going to play for a while, since 4 spaghettos a side was getting weird.

Well this weekend is pretty poor overall tbh. It's all premium affair and no discounts on regular tanks or equipment, no battle bonuses such as a constant X2 xp or X2 crew xp for the win, no free consumable with 5 wins or the likes and tbh, with the battle count I have, unless I REALLY want to play, then if there's no bait, I really couldn't be arsed playing. Git gud WG :sceptic:

 

 

P.S. I'm also in shock at how many players invested so much time for a discount on some tier8 Italian craptank 3 round failoader but you know each to their own lol! :teethhappy: Is it good? do you like it? It's even better than a Defender right? I bet it just wipes the floor with every other tier 8 and not to mention the the tier9 and 10 it faces, how does it handle the plethora of better tanks it faces every battle? and it only took you four years straight of gameplay to win? wahahaa!!! :teethhappy: "No I bought it!" wahahahaa!:teethhappy:

sigh... it's the 100th time they have these missions. And they appear a few times a year. Why are ppl still surprised that they only are for premiums. I mean based on what you said. I'm amazed you thought WG would give one of your normal tanks 50 000 xp on the 25th game. They are nice now and then. But not THAT nice.

For profit company runs event which rewards paying customers - hardly a scandal is it? Most specials are open to all players.

Boohoo, the optional bonus content is only available for certain players this time. That makes the game completely unplayable!

Seriously... grow up!

I didn´t buy Progetto myself but I can´t see nothing wrong about this particular event. You could have the tank completely for free or for significant discount + other rewards. Why not?

 

Tank is not OP which is quite appreciated. It is not for braindead people. What do you want? Premium Obj. 268-4? Your statement is completely stupid.

 

Furthermore most people bought it because they want trained crew before Italian line is out. For your information this is one of the main aspects of premium tanks... to train a crew.

​My problem was with how the 'discount' scheme was run. The stated discount only became effective once and if you reached the very last stages of the marathon. If you didn't, what you ended up was a stated discount percentage on a bundle that kept getting devalued in the process of moving from one stage to the next. For me, having completed stage 4, this means a discount of 40% on the bundle, not the tank itself on which I can only expect to get about 12% off if I were to buy the bundle.

 

:sceptic:

 

The fox is laughing all the way to the bank.
