Try to play arty all weekend to try to get bombardier... that is, if my shells can even find the ground.

Not too bad this week. Sure it's only scouts, but there's a mission for destroying them too. Plus, who doesn't like a good old 50% camouflage discount? :smile:

 

More detailed review to follow...

 

- Tier 2-7 LT Credit Bonus: A bit of a weak bonus for the higher tier lights, but certainly helpful.

- x2 Crew XP: ALWAYS useful. Great for the people who have a crew at 90% on the first crew skill who are trying for 6th Sense. Very happy about this.

- 50% Camouflage Discount: Good to see there are still some 50% discounts out here. I've been waiting for a camo discount for a while, glad to see we have one!

- 50% off Insignias/Inscriptions: Personally I don't use them; they aren't worth the gold to me. However, I know some people do, and will be happy about this sale.

- 30-50% Premium LT Discount: There a few more that could have been included, but we can't have everything every time, and I guess these are the most "scouty" premium lights.

- Mission "In Spot We Trust" : Not a bad mission. Difficult, but with a decent reward.

- Mission "Spotting Means Victory" : Personally, I think it's a bit too hard to achieve for the reward, but that's just me. I'm sure dedicated scout drivers will be happy. Might even attempt it myself.

- Mission "Two for the Price of One" : Another one that only a very small amount of lucky players, or dedicated arty players, will ever achieve. The Bombardier medal is probably the hardest in the game to get, aside from Raseiniai Hero's Medal, especially with arty being so spazzy and buggy after 8.11. A good, solid reward if you can pull it off though.

 

Overall Assessment: Not epic, not terrible. It's a bit better than the past 2 weekends, PLUS x2 crew XP and 50% Camouflage discount, which makes it much better. Those two bonuses alone make this a good, solid weekend bonus.

 

Personally, no -1's shall be given to Content_WG this weekend from me. He/she/it might even get some green today! (EDIT: Turns out that's not the case. Oh well, optimism doesn't always work.)

 

EDIT: Just another thought, it would greatly improve upon this special and other specials in the future if whoever makes them would include some bonuses for the higher tier tanks, in this case, the tier 8 lights. Tier 8-10 tanks get little attention, so including them in some specials would be nice. Just a suggestion for the future. :smile:

Sale on camo, inscriptions, and emblems.  Just what I was waiting for.  :smile:

Would have been better if you used the other medal (can't remember the name) that requires lot of spotting damage instead of this one that promotes suiscouts.

So this ever encourages suicide scouting to get the medal?

They have to survive the battle and place on the top 10 exp earners. Suiscouts will get nothing!

This mission is almost as [edited]as last weekend's El Halluf idiocy.  Almost.

According to the description of the mission, you have to survive for it to count. Suiscouting is therefore out of the question, though this might make the mission very difficult.

 

50% discount on camo is nice enough, I guess.

Its mediocre, as per usual. I was planning on buying some lights this weekend. However none of the lights (except gold lights) are on sale.

Do you honestly think that's going to stop baddies from suiscouting?

Baddies will suiscout with or without any missions. Then they will be coming to the forums complaining: "Wth, spotted 10 tonks, did not get bonus, fix the game plox!". Baddies will be bad regardless.

Another meh weekend.

 

Not really in love with these missions. What about patrol duty? Arguably the most valuable contribution medal any scout can receive. And that bombardier medal mission is horrible - not because I won't achieve it (which I probably won't) but because of how it will encourage kill hunting with arty when they should be doing damage. :(

Since I need to buy 2 scouts at this point, it would have been nice to have them on sale too.  Its actually surprising that there aren't any non-premiums on sale.  Would have been nice to see (and this is the usual pattern, or one of them):

 

T4-5 LT - 50% Discount

T6-7 LT - 30% Discount

T8 LT - 15% Discount
