My thoughts (after watching video of illustrated living history):


http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

I vote for a E.Rommel and R.A. Montgomery quiz.
And a Pz3 vs. Crusader quiz

Chance to win gold and an in-game Crusader!



http://www.youtube.c...h?v=rYDKK_idUP8

+50% free experience for M3 Lee, Pz3, Pz3 Ausf A., Pz4, M4, and Matilda (closest thing to a Crusader at the moment)


http://www.youtube.c...h?v=-6OhUGPZumw
+50% free credits for Arty tier 4 and below.



http://www.youtube.c...h?v=hJhZgWV-FS0

M4 quiz
Winner gets a Ram II and T14.



(apologies that the videos are hosted by someone with a political agenda)

Tankers!
Are you ready for another special this weekend?

The Battle of El Alamein took place from October 23rd to November 5th, 1942. The German and Italian forces were attempting to take over El Alamein to get closer to the Suez Canal. Following two operations, Operation Lightfoot and Operation Bertram, the Allied forces were able to push back the German and Italian forces, thus successfully defending the Suez Canal.

In honor of this Battle, we will be holding another special this weekend, from October 21 – 23.

Details about the special to be released as soon as possible!

Well no your information is incorrect;

  • The Second Battle of El Alamein occurred during that time frame. The Battle of El Alamein, which was a German attack, occurred 1-27 July 1942 and was successfully defeated by British Commonwealth Forces.
  • Operation Lightfoot was only the initial part of the battle. It didn't involve any tanks.
  • Operation Bertram was a deception plan nothing more.
  • There were no allies in either battle it was all British Commonwealth (UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India) vs Germany/Italy. If you include Free French and Greece, no disrespect to those soldiers, then perhaps you might very loosely term it as allies.
  • There are no British tanks in the game. Those tanks that are M3 Stuart (Honey), Valentine, Matilda would be the only one in numbers, M3 Lee only a few as the British used the M3 Grant mostly. British tanks currently in the game (Soviet Lease-lend) are Soviet versions not British. There are no Italian tanks in the game.

As an Australian, whose father served in North Africa as part of the 9th Australian Division (AT Gunner 2/3 Anti Tank Regt), I find your lax attitude to historical fact very insulting.
