Greetings Everyone!

 

As most of you have already seen, we're kicking off the Tank Festival with the Czech Holidays which brings the Škoda T 27!  

 

Essentially, the Czech Holidays is like a "Super On-track" in some since that the majority of rewards are for the Czech line and Škoda T 27.  For mission details, rewards, and a closer look at the new Czech Tank use the links below.

 

Czech Holidays:

Friday, August. 9

07:00 PT | 09:00 CT | 10:00 ET

Monday, August. 19
07:00 PT | 09:00 CT | 10:00 ET

 

Celebrate the Czech Holidays!

 

Introducing the Škoda T 27!

 

Also, for those who were requesting the Czech Flag style, we finally got it on NA!

 

GLHF!

Hi Jamb. Please pass on to the devs that a lot of players want to shut off the dog tags.

In honor of the holiday you should give out T27 rentals for people to try out. No need to send crews if that mucks things up, and we need to enter a code to get it. Great idea for a steam bonus :medal: or just post it to celebrate the holiday:great:

The missions for the Skoda T 27 look great.

Too bad you guys are still putting codes on everything which means I am not buying.

I also thought the Grosstraktor with 30 days of premium time was a good deal.

Sadly I will pass on this one too. Darn codes.

Am I reading this right?  You can't get the 4 Female Crew without purchasing the Skoda T27?  :amazed:

I was sad to see that, but it looks like they are limited to that nation, so it's just kind of meh now, but it would still be nice to get them since we'll all be getting national fragments.

Yup. Unless you come across a rental with the right timing, which should be available via some CC.

 

But they're not the usual Female crew members, they are all Czech and they each have a designated role. And obviously the commander is won on the last stage.

:(  I already grinded my way to the Tier X and put 4 ladies in her already.  If those are limited to that line, then it saves me having to buy this mediocre Tier VIII Premium tank!  :great:

 

You know it can't be good when every reviewer says its mediocre and its only redeeming quality is that it's better than the tech tree tank (arguably the worst Tier VIII in the game).  Plus, I know 3 people who've purchased it today and all 3 say that they made a mistake buying it.  Oof

From what I read this morning and by what the missions in game showed, you have to get the tank to grind for the female crew members.

I'm really not surprised that they all think it's better than tech tree...but still sucks. Instead of balancing the tvp they just sell a better version.  Pretty standard MO from WG these days.

 

Im also not a fan of the dog tags.  Can't think of a single person I've ever played this game with asking for dog tags or anything like it.  I can remember a lot of people asking for more maps and better balanced maps though.

This event seems poorly implemented and is just a slap in the face for people that buy premium time but don't buy premium tanks.  Seems like if you buy premium time you don't get full access to the game unless you want to shell out more cash.  This would be like World of Warcraft saying you don't get access too all the dungeons/raids if you don't buy each dungeon/raid on top of paying us a monthly fee on top of buying the expansions.

 

It should be if you buy the tank you get the crew with the tank and some other goodies.  If you don't buy the tank you can still grind for the crew, but you don't get as good a goodies.

how UN exciting ....

 

If you have already grinded out the Czech medium line (it's the only one) then you will already have the tanks and the crews you'll need for this 'entire' tech tree. If you have not grinded out this tech tree by now, then its prolly because you ain't gonna.

 

you get blueprints for tanks you have already researched and crew locked in for tanks you already have -or- have no interest in.

I'll grind through the missions and collect the 3 pieces of equipment by simply playing my 'other' tanks as I would have done in any case.

Ergo, either way these missions and the rewards are mostly useless .... it must have taken an extra 'special' genius from WG to plan this event out lmbo

 

good luck selling them T27 WG !!! ..... hilarious !!

A marathon where you can´t earn the tank, you have to buy it to play and get the nice rewards... "Czech Holidays" sounds like missions for 100 blueprints and some regular modules... i´ll pass.

Bad move WG, really greedy, wallet closed this time.

I never knew the Russians hated the Czechs more than the Poles, but this marathon is strong evidence this is so.

If this isn't called pay to win, I don't know what is.

It's not P2W.  The tank is mediocre at best and you won't get any direct advantage over other players if you buy the tank.   They should have just made a single set of missions and added any extra content with the tank in the shop.  If they had done that I'd be willing to bet there would be minimal complaints about the mission except for people expecting WG to give out a free tank everytime they release a new premium tank.

I was talking about the rewards (though this tank is infinitely better than it's tech tree counterpart, the TVP VTU). By buying the tank you get access to simple missions that will net you much superior crew (female crew with 0-skill BiA).

Am I able to complete the Czech part after I complete the normal part? So, I don't have to control which tank I play?

They say you can only complete each mission once.  So no, you have to play the Skoda T27 until you complete your daily mission or you risk completing it with another tank and miss out on your additional reward. In this one instance, a code to choose your mission set would probably have been a good idea.
