No crew retraining discount but there is an interesting mission - Island Assault. Just wish there was crew retraining discount since most of players will have to go through several tanks to complete it, which means they will have to train crew for new tank/s.

 

50k exp is enough for me to complete my Conqueror, then complete Churchill Gun Carrier, then move to Crusader 5.5-in. SP and that's only on U.K. side. I will also complete my Easy 8 and move to T20.

 

Just saying Island Assault and Crew Retraining discount would go together like bread and butter.

 

Question about Island Assault mission: do first victories of the day and premium bonus go towards 50k exp to complete this mission? Just asking because on EU server it's only base exp plus you have to be in top 10 players?

 

Please let me/us know.

 

Thank you,

 

Dasm

No x3 for each first victory of the day like I thought I saw on the EU server. That was about all I cared about this weekend. Oh well.

Would be nice to see a good credit earning mission - too bad they have turned into endangered species that are rarely seen...

 This event just makes me wish there was an island map, and the tanks landed on the beach on landing craft... I'm sad now.

We're getting 2x crew xp, aren't we already getting that as part of the month long August event?  Ouch, I guess at least the game will be playable this weekend.

The reward for completing the Inland Assault mission is: Automatic Large Repair Kits (10). Cool!

 

Hax, I'm telling you.

The Tog is 20$ CDN currently at the gift shop   with the 30% gold discount  it will be discounted there too I'm guessing?       Anyone know how much it will be?    i doubt it will just be 30% off the cash price.

Guadalacanal was the best battle of WW2. The only battle where there was land, air and naval engagements between two equally matched opponents.

 

Boo hiss on no crew retraining. I was planning on moving into a T30 this weekend. Maybe next weekend.

It was the real turning point of the Pacific not Midway, IMO.

So I get WG is still withholding the credits bonuses, but it's really overdue for a consumable sale.
