Guys I don't get why you need to complain... it works fine for me, win or loss... look at your post game results under reward for mission completed, you get the same amount that you earned from the game.

just checked the 2 times bit out... NOT for every battle after a win. False advertising. Premium account owners will see no difference at all. 

 

Ummm....you might want to check again.

Hello tankers, 

 

The article has been updated with more information about this event today. 

To get the x2 on every battle: 

 

"You'll need to get your daily first-win on each tank in order to activate the x2 all-day bonus for that tank. After your first win, the x2 XP icon will not show up in your tank carousel, but it will show in your after-battle "Detailed Report" screen regardless of a win or a loss."

 

I apologize for the confusion surrounding this event.

But they will. Premium account gives you 50% more. X2 means twice as much = 200% instead of 150%.

Need the win first, stuff like this makes me glad I don't spend money on the game anymore. 

Why, because you can't win a battle?

Because whiners gotta whine.

For an unexpected bonus day it is really great.  Just wish I had time to play today.

It cheapens the event. As I lost 12 games that would have been doubled because I have hadn't gotten the first win of the day on them. Every other player is going to miss out on some as well most likely 4-7 depending on how many tanks they are trying to grind up today.

But it is an unplanned event! You didn't have this on your calendar as this is the day I'm going to grind tanks because there will be a 2X day. So whatever you get is a bonus of what you would have got without it.  Its Monday, usually not a day for bonuses.

I don't understand why someone has to always complain about something they are given.

This was a planned event even Rita's blog mentioned it on Thursday . . . also Wargaming would never just make a snap event 12 hours before the server reset although they are pretty good about announcing them 12 hours in . . .

I wasn't clear on that, what I meant is we expect events on the weekend and many holidays. I doubt many would have said a week ago " we should have a special on Monday because it is leap day".   At least it never entered my mind nor did I see anything on the forums about it previously to last weekend.

 

But as I can see from the bottom of your posts, you are always looking for the negatives in WG and never the pluses so you will continue to find any fault you can.  I still find the pluses outweigh the negatives.

I would like to ask an honest question to WG and/or WGNA.

 

Why rampage mode is always excluded from any mission?

 

Thanks for your answer

Ghost Prime this leap day event was HIGHLY confusing indeed.

 

This event should now be LEAPED to Saturday  and sufficient info given before hand.

 

but we know this won't happen which it really should

 

You posted this at 14:09 too !   

 

That is 9 minutes after 2 o clock Eastern standard time guy!  The day is half over ! :amazed:

And you should be banned for being a greedy child. If you cant guess that a win is needed first (Like every other x2 event), and instead just complain, then maybe you dont deserve to play. Ghost is PST, which means that its just past 11. If you read Ghosts little tag, hes a community coordinator, which also comes with other jobs then just reading the forums. Be glad he responded when he did, as its only 11 there and im sure he is busy. Thanks Ghost.

I'm not getting the 2x ether.  Oh Snap!  It's Tuesday and I won't get hm from work until much later.

 

It would have made more sense having a 24hr special in the Weekend.
