When are we going to get the Kantemirovets style that was on the public test server? Is it coming separately or are we not getting it at all? I think the russian server already got it...

Man...that is quite worse special for D-day than even 10 anniversary...
2 reserves and cammo))))?
Really,WG?
Why you don’t do anything really special for such honorable days?
Like, discounts for bond’s equipment ( nobody asking 50%, 15-25%would be OK) or discount for training manual for example?
Now, you are doing a lot of specials, but it’s like my friend saying - SSED - same sh1t every day.
You should have fired that guy responsible for specials, cause he just use Ctrl Copy - Ctrl Paste every month...:(

Why do so many people have to complain that the free stuff they get is not enough?

Seriously, self-entitled enough or what?

If you don't like it then don't play. Not like anyone is forcing you to play is it?

 

The rewards may not be stellar but they are free so that makes it a good deal in my book.

30k xp and what looks like no restrictions on the tank chosen (and for basically no effort) sounds tasty, though. Will ponder a bit which grind/destocking I am currently detesting most. :popcorn:

Remember the sacrifice of those men by giving us some $$$. Even for wg this is very low. You could have at least placed the offer under the missions, to save face.

 

Can't wait for 26 april, 'Remember the people who sacrificed their lives and health at Chernobyl. While you're doing that, buy this Mutant, 'coz, you know, radiations make mutants and stuff like that. Whatever, give us $$$'.

Last year the special was:

- 2x XP for victories.

- 50% discount on garage slots and cammo.

- Mission marathon for the M10 RBFM.

 

This year:

- +50% xp for victories.

- 3 cammo and 2 emblems.

- 2 reserves for XP.

- 9 consumables.

- 30k XP.

 

What conclusion should we draw from this?

Clearly, this camo can only mean that we get a 3D-skin consisting of lusty Dutch wenches to decorate our Shermans with. :popcorn:

Its justified to complain in my opinion seeing that they announced "Plenty of personal reserves" as a reward. 2x 1h - 100% Exp Reserve is not really "plenty" of it.

Of course its nice to get some free camo, but then they should advertise this event with "free camo" and not with "Plenty of Reserves".

Fair enough. Can't argue with that but, to be fair, WG's communications have a tendency towards the egregious side of the English language.....

Yeah, not my definition of "plenty" either. But then again, Wargaming does not exactly have a reputation for being truthful in any way whatsoever. Quite the opposite, in fact. So that should have tempered the expectations somewhat. :mellow:
