Hey Tankers!

Remember that sweet Promo vid we did with Italian Football (Soccer, for you Americans) superstar Gigi Buffon? In case you missed it, here it is again below:

 



Well now's your chance to have him commanding your favorite Italian Tank!

 

You'll have a week between May 11th and May 18th (Starts and ends at 4:20 PT) to complete a set of 4 special battle missions to receive a special Zero-skill-sixth-sense Commander featuring Gigi Buffon's likeness and voice acting.

 

For all the details regarding the missions, head on over to our News Portal.

Make sure you pick up yours before these missions say...

So if he's my commander and an enemy tank drives past me really close does he dive to the ground, rolling around in pain and clutching his shin?  You know, like the rest of those pansy "football" players do?

I don't even have a Tier 4 Italian yet.

So that gives me less than a week to get 35,000 damage and 20,000 base XP, ONCE I get up to tier 4.  I give up now, it's not even worth it for 1 guy.  1 week for that is ridiculous, especially considering I have a Tier 2 Italian currently.  That's not even something I can do with a job and spare time in the next week.  You can keep him.

I have to say, the amount of work and effort you want for a single special crew member is ludicrous. Maybe for a whole four-person female crew it would be worth it, but for a single commander with Sixth Sense, I don't care how famous the guy might be. Swing and a miss Wargaming, swing and a miss.

I appreciate his talent, and he's unquestionably, top 10 all time, but I pray he is never on my team.  He's an embarrassment to watch because of stuff like this and whining to the refs, etc.

I doubt it would take anyone more than 50 battles maximum to complete these 4 missions, since it looks like they can be completed all at the same time, rather than in stages. This seems like the least amount of work it could possibly be, short of the mission just being "log into the game". For a week long mini-event this is pretty tame, as its basically playing 7-8 battles a day and not being a complete and utter potato. If I had a Progetto 46 (or any of the tier 4+ italian tanks Id definitely be doing this).

No man, this is Buffon.  So what he'll do is argue with the ref, get a red card, and you'll play the rest of the match without a Commander.

By this time I think anyone who bought,the Prog during discount/marathon period would got at least 1 skill on their crew. So if you're not a fan of him…

Even though I grew up watching Gigi in Italy and Juventus, I have a great crew in my tier 7 Italian carp tank and don't need a new Commander.

But since you've put this gif here, I guess I'll do the missions. 

 

Pretty good marketing. And sense of humor. :D 

 

A river der chief to you as well!

Personally I like the women's national soccer matches.   The play is slower so you can really follow the play, the flops aren't quite so prolific and the US is actually one of the better teams. 

Also like that I don't have to watch commercials ad nauseum like football timeouts, quarters,halftime, etc., baseball's between innings, NBA's 75 timeouts per game, etc.  

And how the game doesn't last forever and ever and goes fairly quickly.

 

But yeah, I'd rather play (poorly) than watch and I'd rather watch those other sports than watch any regular soccer/futbol game.

For the players saying that they don't have a tier 4 yet to do the missions: IT"S A X3 WEEKEND.

It would take less than a hour to get from tier 1 to tier 4. Basically win and move on at the lower tiers. 

 

Forgot to mention the Italian Tech Tree event is going on, that 30% XP bonus each battle.

 

If you were going to grind the Italian line now would be the time to do it, regardless of the reward(s) the bonus xp during these events are a great time saver.
