RE-RE-EDIT: An Apology, and Some Advice: I am sorry if the following post seems harsh, so this is an edited-in apology for being negative towards this special. I am somewhat of a perfectionist, so I hate it when things are constantly mixed up, and they aren't fixed correctly the first time. I honestly think that, as a company, you would do much better to thoroughly read/scan/test your products, Weekend Special Announcements and Game Patches alike. I understand that patches with lots of changes are difficult to test thoroughly, but it only takes 1 or 2 people less than 5 minutes to read through the Weekend Special Announcement and make sure that everything is right. If not, it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to fix it, even including a bathroom break.

 

I would like to quote the following people who replied later in this thread:

Take their advice. If you can suck it up and honor a discount of virtual items that really cost you nothing, your customers and player-base will be MUCH more satisfied with your services. The best thing you could do when these errors are made is to leave them as they are, but let your player-base know that they are getting more than was planned, and that you will not be changing it back to the original plan. Again, this would make your customers and player-base much more satisfied with your services, and more likely to spend money. As a company, I know you are out to make dollars, not sense, but this makes both.

 

TL;DR: Take just a LITTLE more time, don't rush things, honor the specials made by error, (unless it's unreasonable like 80% off tier 10 tanks) and they will come out much better with less complaints from your customers. I hope that lightens the harsh mood a little....

 

Now that I have that over with... mixed rage/review/spam/colors/strikethroughs/bold/pretty/#weekendspecialisbestspecial in spoiler below.

But the question is, will the game actually work over the weekend?

 

Only friday will tell.

 

 

If it does work I might bother to hop on and rebuy the IS to have some good old fun with it again.

sadly....i am aware of this OTR, but unlike EU we're not getting an Arty special weekend followed by an arty on the track right afterwards.

What? 50% off tiers 6-7? I think it's been at least a year since we've seen tiers 6-7 go for more than 30% off!

Dear hot fix patch, please solve my problems. I would like to actually play this game again. I'll let the week of premium I lost slide because I understand **** happens. Yours truly, yso.

Wow, Wargaming, I never thought I would see Tier 6s and above go for 50% off again. Thank you for pleasantly surprising me this time.

These 25% sales are getting quite annoying.  Could you just cut them out completely and put one thing 50% off?  Thanks.

I'd like an actual sale on tier 7 premium TDs, not your little bundle where you throw in a few premium days to jack up the price.  That bundle only equates to about 7% off in total.  I'll gladly wait until both are 30% off rather than waste my money on that crap "deal".

Once again, the normal 50% discount on camouflage and garage slots is reduced now only 25%. I'm not sure what your business model says, buy the perception of us members is that WoT is trying to GOUGE us by this sort of action. Please reconsider your policy to deviate from what was always your standard SALE PRICE of %50$ OFF on these items.

WG stated recently that they will continue with their previous schedule of 50% off (cammo, garage slots, equipt, etc) sales ..which was about 4x a year.  They also stated that the 25% sales were IN ADDITION to the aforementioned 50% off sale frequency.

Garage slots were 50% off (last week?) ..and a few weeks before that...and a few weeks before that... bummer you missed em.
