This preview tells me almost nothing I want to know...

 

Kind of a mixed bag.  Some interesting stuff, but none of it is of particular concern to me.

 

It's missing a truly useful "what's happening on the weekends for bonuses" segment.

 

And would it really hurt to announce in advance (or HAVE, for Ghu's sake) some of the classics - I wouldn't mind seeing another used tank trade-in and some on-sale consumables would be nice.  :)

bring back the month long Halloween event where you earn points to pick one of the three houses and it either be a trick or a treat where you got garage slots equipment consumables and a chance to win premium tanks loved that event a lot more then the leviathan event where all you get is stupid Precipitation ribbons which

Yep.

 

"In October there will be sales!"

 

 

....doesn't really tell me anything. The whole point of the preview articles was a way for WG to tell us what's coming up... There's almost no usable information in that post at all though. Either tell us the info or don't waste your time, because these in-between "overviews" that are ultra-vague are a total waste of everyone's time as-is. The only useful info in that entire post was that the Italians would be on-track next (which makes no sense...).

Any chance of getting an equipment sale this month like the EU server has going on now?

No Tank Hollow, no discounts, and not even specials.

 

Instead a useless October premium shop preview.

Happy early Halloween 2018!

 

I have an awesome idea for this holiday! Zombie tanks! Imagine 35 T37 light tanks on a city map at night mode: fires burning everywhere and the house windows visibly lit up. Now at the beginning, everyone spawns from one side of the map and looks normal and on the opposite side is ONE green color GLOWING T37! (evil looking little zombie tank) So while the other team is running for their lives and panicking while trying to outrun this zombie... 

 

Well I thought of 2 modes either all the guns are unusable and the zombie T37 turns other tanks into zombie tanks by ramming them OR you can turn other tanks into zombies by shooting them with green shells until the whole team are green glowing zombies! I'll let you figure out the winning points system and all I want is my fair share if you use my idea Wargaming! Ok, Happy Halloween everyone and have a fun ghoulish good time!

Looks good, can't wait to see what the "Halloween Mode" is for this year.

 

Say, is there a full-size image of that KV-1 on top of the article available somewhere? That would make a slick wallpaper for my rig if there is. :)

Basically nothing but premium tanks sales just what we need..... How about events were you can earn things people actually want? You know things that encourage people to log in and play?

I really wanna know what the new premium tank is going to be. I got a premium account because it is in 3 days so it will be a bargain either way. I just don't know what it is and I really wanna know. Thanks. -Tank

Thank you for putting up a preview slightly before Oct... but I hate to ask?  Is this all?  No tank Hollow or anything like that we are just getting well nothing now compared to last year?  That's crap..   Tank rewards has been gone this year.. 10 months to hire someone to do the job and I guess just a nice FU to the NA community.

If this is really the one I might throw my head out the window on the freeway. WOW. Like 3 dollars to get a tier 8 premium TD. (BTW I love TDs. I own the Scorpion G) I also have a 30 day premium account so if it is real imma tell my friends to get a premium account really fast. Thanks. If anyone has any other thoughts then please reply to me. -Tank

Does this mean that we are going to be able to trade tanks? It says for the EU server that they are going to be doing tank trading this October. It says on the EU calendar that they will be doing trading for that server from the 12th-25th. I hope we can do trading here in the NA server too! I want an E-25! Ill give up my T34 and my Skoda T 40 for that! Happy Tanking everyone. :) -Tank

This caught my attention.

 October is all about tanks that go bump in the night! A new vehicle debuts, monster tanks go on sale, and let us not forget special Halloween surprises not listed here (because if we revealed them, they wouldn't be a surprise)!

So looking at the EU WOT page for October shows tank sales, equipment discounts, and consumables/camo discounts.  Where are ours?  All this does is show us what is happening in the premium shop and it looks like NA is getting screwed on all the sales that EU is getting?

Where are ours?

So I will start with the positive.

 

Thank you WG folks for providing the October overview before October! ;)

 

And of course the other side.

 

Well upon second look, WG did not provide us with anything yet.  That is all EU server service.  I wonder if we will get any service???

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So you finally provided the info that we were looking for in the new calendar (https://worldoftanks...tober-specials/).  Better late than never.  Wargaming while I understand you wanting to hype the new feature, I would suggest that one or two new ideas could be used to do that.  Please do not take all of the information out of the Overview to hype something, even something great,  while this is pretty basic content.

 

So anyway...

 

There are a lot of good things that you do but the basics seem to be getting missed quite frequently.

 

Thanks.....
