Like always, there is a typo:

Fix it.

Here was I expecting a marathon to get a tier 7 premium, when what you get is a special that doesn't give you much but paints a huge SHOOT ME sign if you play a particular tank.

So.. when you use "ze Germans" aka Face the Eagle then it is X2 , but only 3 times a day

But when you use "the bloody Yanks" aka One Shot! then it is X2 , but unlimited times a day

 

Any idea why this bias?

What a stupid special again..... x2 ohhh wow....

All this coming soon.... historical article.... and than another premium tank. WOW

Why not a special mode or something out of the box.... instead of the weekly new premium tank and crap x2 battle rewards.

Also need to win on One Shot!, need to be top 3 exp on Face the Eagle.

 

Will suck to lose your 2x's on some losing matches in potato teams.

Im actually 5k away from E50 but I'm seriously considering not to pick the tank on this special. I don't wanna be targeted.

So I guess I can't grind my Pershing to get MT-15 for a whole week because I'll get targeted all the time...

Well... if there are some campaign missions where you have to block xyz  dmg, now is the time since you are going to be a target if you roll out one of these tanks... and you will bounce some (if you dont get penned and if you are top tier)

 

Anyways, i'm gonna roll out my SuperPershing, just for lolz

You have created a special tank and a special event around a rather unimportant skirmish of three tanks (I know the crews that were involved would not agree...).

Today it is 50 years from the start of the occupation of Czechoslovakia, where some 6 300 tanks were involved and which changed the country forever.

Yet there is not a single mention of it.

Does it mean that Wargaming is fine with what has happened back then?

I need to grind my Pershing as well. Other than the "Panter tanks" should have no reason for targeting us right?

Well, time for comment:

 

Use some specific tanks, damage some specific tanks, win the battle or be in the top three of the team ...

... well, the question is "Who is going to play for this event for just x2 XP?" ... probably no one or only a few and these just because they are just & by luck playing these tanks at this given time ...

 

... it is better to buy a lottery ticket, the chances to win something are higher.

why not have fun with history

 

Really WG?!? Are you serious?!?

Look, he is bailing out of a stricken tank - "fun with history"

Look, he falls to the street headfirst - "fun with history"

Look, his leg is gone below the knee, wisps of smoke coil out of the traumatized stump. - "fun with history"


 

Yeah baby, it is so "funny". :facepalm: :angry:


 

Everyone from that battle deserves respect and piety. And not some "fun with history"! :(

This and This.

I dont know much about the history of the occupation of Czechoslovakia.. but it would have been more interresting then putting something up everyone knows like they did now.. but i guess its better for the masses and less work since its all wiki'ed and documented so well on the internet. 

Also provided a chance for WG to put out a new premium vehicle for $$$$$

Personally i would have loved to learn something..........

 

This is a game that is gettting its age ... and more so in the future, ppl still playing this will not be your average young shooter 'fortnite' player but have interest in tanks.

 

WG knows this but yea. i guess the $$$ from a new prem tank was descisive

 

Greetings, Arco

About the context - Kucus_CZ have summarized it pretty well.

As for the special - drive tanks that you would rarely drive (cause they are not that good) to damage the tanks that you would rarely see (cause nobody drives them, cause they are not that good).... to get.... double XP....  

 

My guess is that only people who does have a slight incentive to drive those tanks are those who are currently grinding them.  Sounds like a failed special to me...
