    1. Don't use them than.... I hope they'll never put that in any special again.

    2. I second Loodak's comment, don't use them then.

    3. its always good to have 6-10 gold ammo on tier 6+ tanks, but you have to use them to win the match, not waste them on every battle.

      Delete
    4. And this is why the number of gold rounds should be limited to a % of total ammo capacity. This would benefit tanks with larger ammo capacities.

  3. FUCK IT. I THOUGHT TYPE 59 WILL BE!

  4. eh.... i got a 59, is the 62 worth it?

    1. 62 is fun but makes no credits. 59 is less fun when mobility was nerfed and the gun was buffed slightly, but it craps credits.

      Delete
    2. The Type 62 is pretty fun to play if you like to play light tanks. For me it makes around 30-50k per battle (with premium account). And its a pretty good crew trainer for the Chinese light tanks (hell, even for the other ones)
      I hope i could help

  5. the giftshop offers suck... type 62 nice->looking at the price nope never ever... making it 2 as much as it should be by adding useless things to a tank is not the way to make us happy, WG.

    BTW I think after close to 3/4 year they could start selling type 59 again

  6. Kinda wished for some T7 or T9 love but this is nice too :)

  7. Eh... I'd buy the KV-5 for like 30e, but I foresee that it will be at 40 euros at least. Which is a no-no.

  8. Well that is one disappointing special. Does not really match the calendar description of discounts on everything that's got tracks on it.
    And I was saving like mad......

  9. Congratulations for the stupid poll, the flags are related to the official supported languages, it's not weird that they didn't include Scandinivian countries, they didn't even include Italy that was a major Axis power for that matter.

    1. So... why is there the flag of Argentine then? Right next to the British one...

      Delete
    2. Does anyone know how to get rid of this fucking Garage?

      Delete
    3. Apparently you can't. Not even rewriting files works.

      Delete
    4. I'm thinking it's the same garage on the EU and NA servers, and that the flags represent the official sections of each site, hence the south american and canadian flags.
      if this is true, this shitstorm could have been avoided if WG just explained it. of course, then we would have a different shitstorm :D

      Delete
    5. Who knows, maybe they have an official presence in those countries, Brazil and Mexico are also represented, I don't know.
      And Germany flag is just in the middle between France and Czech republic, if you're referring to THAT thing...

      Delete
    6. they have, sort of: in the NA there's a french section, so that explains Canada, a portuguese section which explains Brazil and a spanish section, which explains Mexico and Argentina, which are IIRC the more populated of the spanish speaking countries.

      good thing they didn't put in the flags for something like Uruguay or Bolivia, or else the whining could have been epic :D

      Delete
    7. The worst part about that anniversary garage is that is so badly optimized and together with that Flash GUI even the mouse cursor has parkinson :(

      Delete
    8. Here is a solution to get rid of the garage ...

    9. Funny thing at the side, there are two german flags I think, one on a pole and one on a balcony/wall. German bias much ;-)

  10. Pretty lame special, nothing we didn't have recently. A premium code would be nice as would be sale on premium ammo.

  11. This was the the russian anniversary special:

    1. it seems that code would have worked at the time even for us non RU players... we just weren't told about it, and of course it's expired now...

      Delete
    2. if you would bother reading, its a special from august of 2012. this IS not the current 2nd bd special.

      Delete
    3. That's because the RU server went live before the EU&NA and at a different date. So they're slightly older than us.

      Delete
    4. it's from the 2nd anniversary special in Russia...

      comparing the second anniversary special on their server, comparing it to the EU/NA server specials is not appropriate how exactly?

      or were you unaware that they already had their 2nd anniversary special?

      quoted for emphasis
      "Updated. Remember that for the second anniversary of the project World of Tanks for all the players were given a special bonus code to receive gifts."

      basically they gave everyone a code on the RU anniversary, and just didn't tell anyone but the RU players is what it looks like to me.

      Delete
    5. or you were unaware we HAD this special in AUGUST too...

      Delete
    6. i was indeed unaware of that... i must've missed it somehow, but i did find it now that i knew to look for it...

  12. About the Gay-rage (lol) it seems silly to leave us scandinavians out. Even the Argentine flag is there, you'd think our flags would be there aswell. All flags or no flags IMHO.

    1. The flags there seem to represent official communities.

    2. who gives a crap about which flags are shown???

  13. Oh wee. 5x xp for the first victory.
    Guess I won't bother to play then.

  14. Well.. hard times are coming. Lots of bad games.. lame victories and unrealistic defeats. I hate it as much as I like it.

    Best of luck to all.. hope you will manage to get your new tanks without too much of suffering and rage :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh yay, 5x exp so all the idiots come out and play. And I was hoping to get rid of my T21 and AT2 faster, but with the teams I've been getting during the past 5x exp events, no way that'll happen. And the discount on tanks is useless for me as I either have the tank already in my garage or I don't have it researched.

    Shame we don't get our own tailored special, but still some good stuff there.

    ReplyDelete
  17. btw.. what are the chances that we will also get a bonus code for one day premium acc? ^^

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, too bad there is no nice discount for the gold I stocked up...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Only 15% off T8 prem. Absolute bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Shit special tbh. After all the hype from WG this is VERY disappointing. No tier 9 discounts, only 15% off tier 8 premiums (which is next to nothing when you spend 10k gold) and the only other stuff is the usual 5x noob fest and a bunch of mid tier rubbish.

    Not even sure if I will even bother logging on its that poor.

    1. .. one year ago ppl were happy when there was a tier 7 discount not even to mention tier 8s.. now all tier8 are on discount and stupid kids still cry for more...

      Delete
    2. +1. It seems some people are never happy.

      Virtually all Tier 8 tanks are 30% off and you get more creditearnings on them and a load of other tanks aswell ranging to 100% extra.

      equipment, crewtraining, skill retraining, etc. half price.

      And then some more. Seems like a pretty good special to me.

      Only thing I agree with is that Ectar raised expectations to too high levels writing that pretty much everything with tracks on it will go on discount. I sort of expected discount on T6 and T7 tanks aswell, but this special is still very good.

      Delete
  21. well overall will be annoying by the ammount of bad players trying to do the x5, also t8 will be filled with kids with new toys(premiums and stock tanks), they will suck badly anyways...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I was really hoping for Type 59 as I failed to buy it when it was still available and I could really use a premium medium for earning credits.

    As for the anniversary special itself it is not really so special. Is it just slightly better than a weekend special for some historical event anniversary. They just added some more tanks to the offer and mashed a few extra discounts together that you usually see on different specials.

    Don't get me wrong, it is still a very good special, but with all the hype they created and "calm before the storm" they kind of disappointed me with something so ordinary if that makes any sense to you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well this is a really great special for non premium users. 100% more credits with t5 tanks, give it to me :) Also discount for t8 is ok.

  24. No crew xp...I'll skip this madness and will have a nice weekend instead ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well I expected some bonus for player who are in the game for two ears, but this seem to good too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. If it is indentical, I'll be happy. I'd be surprised that that many US Tier Vs get a 100% CR bonus. That should set me up with cash for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What happened to:
    Bla bla bla,,, and special offers on pretty much everything that’s got tracks on it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, no 2nd Anniversary Giftshop Bundle with Type-62 ???

    Anyway, still some great bonuses available.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah whats the story with the Type62 bundle?

      Delete
  29. 1 day of prem account too with some goodies as all of you already know..

    I think it's pretty good special after all!
