you're new here right? (also I imagine Tan and co might have been occupied a bit by other 'events' noting Tan's just also recently returned from Japan) that and usual ASIA lateness I'm not surprised if the news goes up a bit later than other servers.

A bit later?
The NA server posted their amx 50b news on the 14th, for special commencing 15th.
Is now 16th.

I am just thinking it is forgotten moreso.

Nah its normal for infomration to hit the website after it goes live, furthermore the infomration that is posted on the website (late) is often incorrect anyways.

Was thinking the AMX 50B was the focus on 2nd half this month.
When i checked this morning it was still full price??

Is this special going to happen or is it being bypassed like last time this was supposedly advertised as special several months ago??? (when they accidentally put foch 155 TD on special instead).

The AMX 50B is due on the 18th for Asia this month, to prevent clashes in specials.

The US server has advertised their AMX50B as focus special. You'd think they would have posted here same time.
They posted 14/10/13.....

any mods know what has happened please?

News for specials due 18th, will be announced on 17th.

It hasn't started yet. They always start mid-afternoon so you've probably got another 6+ hours to wait.

Yes, but this will start 2pm Friday 18th.

We are aware of previous issues with content which is why the team size has been increased in size drastically recently.

Good news indeed Tan!
Kindly increase the size of the support service too.
Seems, there are tickets being left in the queue for weeks now.

Why does it matter if it clashes overlaps with another event?
Also the calendar for this server also has it listed for starting on 16th...

A lot of the tanks are on special 15-18 in another special, they cant be on special twice.
So when one special ends on 18th, the new one will start.

The EU and NA all have this for the second half of the month. Even we were supposed to have it for 15 days as all the 15 Anniversary specials went for half the month. This was not supposed to be a "weekly" special.

http://worldoftanks....nt/docs/events/

15th Anniversary Tier X Special: AMX 50 B Focus 15 October, 2013 30 October, 2013

Even the last Tech Tree Focus Special: USSR (27 Sept - 4 Oct, 2013) overlapped with the 1-15 October: 15th Anniversary Tier X Object 268 Focus Special

http://worldoftanks....ept-4-oct-2013/
http://worldoftanks....ject-268-focus/

So overlapping specials is not the reason. The event calendar has also been out since 01/10 so there has been over 2 weeks to review even after it was posted and get it right.

Still haven't seen a valid point other than someone having a brain fart and thinking they shouldn't overlap, really is no harm if the specials are set so they do not stack.
Again Asia server getting the short straw when it comes to recent specials (such as 35% and 25% discount on tier 2-7 instead of 50% and 30% like on NA)

So given that it is being delayed by a few days, will it also be extended by a few days?

Another request, can one of the expanded content team please be given the task of proofreading news posts before they are put up and correcting any errors.
