Nice!

 

EDIT: Two questions though:

1) Since Mission #2 does not specify you need Mission #1 tokens first, I assume both can be completed at the same time?

2) Do Mission # 1 dmg carry over? Say I need 300 dmg for my first #1 token and I do 1500 dmg. Does the 1200 excess dmg carry over, or does the counter simply reset to 0?

Would be nice if you explained what sides the various nation counted for. Yes USA, UK, France, USSR, Poland, Germany and Japan are obvious, but I'm talking about Czechoslovakia (over-run before WW2), Swedan(neutral) and Italy (fought on both sides).

The restrictions are shown in mission descriptions: Allied missions are limited to American tanks only, Axis missions are limited to Japanese tanks only.  

 

I understand the event tries to mirror the actual Battle of Guam but it's a game, we could do without such nation limitations.

I will double check both, but I believe it worked the same was as Monte Cassino, in that they work in stages.

You can use the other specials for personal reserves and grinding tier 5's to really collect credits.

Could you please clarify? The sides for the Battle of Guam are listed in the article.

The German tanks did not take part in the battle of Guam I'm sorry to inform you. For equipment discounts, because you asked so very nicely..... Soon!

But on top of this, for everyone who says you don't need limitations, you will have another saying that Polish tanks never fought in Guam for instance ;)

Dingers t-shirt is amazing and I'd love to wear it more, but worried I'll wear it out :D It was an amazing and comfortable t-shirt! I hope to see you all again and hang out more ! :D 

 

Double checked you can complete them at the same time, you just need to do each 3 times! :) :honoring:

This seems rather skippable, so why not spend a lovely weekend out in the sun.

FYI, you can perform the missions with American or Japanese tanks only.

please stop calling this a "special" because it is not.

proper specials are very rare these days where few years ago they used to be a regular weekend thing. they always had greater xp multiplier and some discounts on either equipment, consumables or tanks. 

watering down proper specials and spreading them over couple of weeks is a bad move wg. if you want to keep players playing give them something worthwhile to look forward to besides endless spam of premium vehicles and weak missions.

shame wg. again

"Proper" specials you speak of were in fact highly rare and barely seen, with many times non seen for a month or so. It is impractical to keep a high level of special value if you try to keep everyone happy and engaged. 

 

Thank you for referring to the timing of this special and the ease of which to complete, you will note this special and article is intended to refer back to a particular event in history and has no monetisation attached, just free stuff for playing, I'm surprised you find free things for playing normally so egregious.
