Hey, everyone! 

 

Hope you're having a great end to your week! 

 

I just wanted to let you know that fom May 25 to 29, you get an exchange rate of 1 Free XP to 10 Crew XP. We also have missions where you can earn American flag emblems (for having 10 victories) and Personal Reserves.

 

Also, you'll earn x3 XP for Memorial Day. This is a repeatable mission, the first win doesn't count, and you need to be one of the top 10 XP earners on your team. 

 

Check out this article, as it lists all the event dates and explains the missions for this weekend: Celebrate Memorial Day! 

 

Please be sure to join us in honoring the men and women who serve in the American military and remember their sacrifices.

 

"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." — Harry S. Truman

Interesting.  This may be the first Memorial Day weekend "special" that does not include a crew retraining sale.

Sure, don't mention the best xp grind weekend you've had in many years (since that x5 one years ago)!

Okay, it's the best grind weekend since the one years ago.  But I still stand by my original statement.  Just an observation:  this might be the first Memorial Day weekend without a crew retraining sale.

Lost a few sailors on my ship. R.I.P. guys. To my brothers fellow soldiers who lost their lives in Iraq R.I.P. to you as well. To those who I did not have the pleasure of knowing thank you for your sacrifice.

3x exp for every battle? If it is that's just awesome Thank +1

 

Is 3x exp for every battle from May 25 to May 29? Or is it only on one specific day and which day is it?

I'm not a Veteran but I have several in my family and I'm pretty certain Memorial Day is not a "Celebration" just sayin...To all the vets that play WOT thank you for doing a job not many can do. And to all those that died fighting for our freedom R.I.P.

3x XP is nice, but I'm more concerned about whether we're getting the On Track to the IS-7 this weekend or not? The May Overview said it would start today.

For one of the most important military days for Americans, the rewards are small. No discounts on consumables, equipment or non premium tanks. No (re)training or x5 or other pluses. I don't usually complain , but felt it was necessary this time.

Was counting on at least a crew training discount, guess we will have to wait a bit longer....

IDK but good to see this post as "last replied" on the front page. The "Changes to vehicles with..." had been there for days.

Up until the 29th in the morning according to the ingame mission info.

 

This wasn't so clear on their announcement... Writing 'Memorial Day weekend' would have made it clear.

I spent 20 years in Navy 74-94, I am 62 and 100% disabled from the VA. This is the greatest stress reliever I have and greatly appriciate the game. I am not very good, so my apologies.

I just received a +25% credit booster for 1 hour. I got after receiving an Ace Tanker with my T-10, 1501 base xp. Is this the hidden mission MeatheadMilitia hinted of? You get credit boosters for Ace Tankers?

Hmmm I believe you are onto something...I got one too for an Ace Tanker match earlier...I couldn't figure out what mission I had completed I bet you are right

In Flanders Fields

John McCrae, 1872 - 1918

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row, 
That mark our place, and in the sky, 
The larks, still bravely singing, fly, 
Scarce heard amid the guns below. 

We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, 
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields. 

Take up our quarrel with the foe! 
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high! 
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
