Ok, I do not know if this is the right place to post this, but i did not want to create a separate thread for this.

 

Yes we are getting the patch with the other servers (yay). And the patch brings with it the Italian tree, also Yay!

 

Now the other servers are getting a special missions to usher in the new line.

 

NA: https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/premium-shop/progetto-m35-mod-46-bundle-extension-0518/, this mission is limited to the tech tree tanks from the italian nation.

 

EU: https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/special-offers/month-long-prizes-week1-may2018/. This mission is not limited to the italian nation tanks.

 

So i went over to the asia server site and checked the news. And there was an article and i was hyped! this meant we may be getting the special too.

 

Asia: https://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/general-news/ps-italians-coming-may2018/

 

Yay? Well not exactly. i was hyped for a second until i read the fine print: Note: These missions will only be available to you if you purchase Mamma's Bundle!

 

So what about us guys who do not purchase this bundle? Most of the guys i assume may have purchased the progetto with the discount from the marathon. If EU and NA can have a mission for everyone why does Asia have to lock it behind a paywall? I mean getting 1.5 times the xp and 2 times the crew xp is a big bonus for anyone moving up that line. Can we expect any mission for the guys who purchased the progetto earlier. Or are we going to be the only server having a month long special behind a paywall?

This is a sneak peek, so not all details of specials and missions are fully released. Do remember that portal articles for weekend specials (in-game and premium shop) go up on Fridays.

I really hope the missions are good. Because the mission in this bundle is too good. to put it into perspective iirc the top of the tree/ on track will give a 1.5 xp bonus only up to tier 7. and the bonus will not be available on the tier 8-10 or the premium tanks. here in the bundle you can get 1.5 times the xp on the premium as well as all italian tanks tier 1-10 tanks. This is the first time i am seeing a huge bonus like this on a bundle in the shop where the maximum is generally 15 x5 missions for victories.

 

This is basically a on track+ without the crew xp for the higher tiers (only 10 times) and the tech tree tank discounts! Basically has me wishing i had not bought the tank on discount and could have had bought this package and power grind the italian tech tree!

So now it's Friday, and what's the new special to do with Italian tanks? He was talking about those missions in that Mama's bundle or something.

Well the military month specials are here and they are the same as on EU. No missions for the italian tanks though. they are stuck behind a paywall as far as i am concerned.

 

I never minded the x5 xp for victory boosters as they inflated the price of the bundle and did not have a very great value (other than getting a good crew). But here we have a mission which applies to tech tree tanks when you buy a premium bundle. Something which no one else gets unless they spend a ridiculous amount of money. x1.5 xp for all italian tanks (premium and tech tree) has huge potential for anyone grinding the line.

 

I am personally disappointed by the mission only for those who pay, but i guess i am the minority.

 

As far as i am concerned this sets a dangerous precedence. Pick up a premium tank with a pseudo top of the tree for the related tech tree for money, while no one else has that benefit. lets see how this pans out.

I'm not going to grind those Italian tanks so personally I don't really care, just feel bad for those who rushed to pick up the tank on day 1 of the marathon without any discount. And I agree this is a rather dangerous and ridiculous way to sell a bundle, WG's greediness is beyond my imagination...

NA server did it quite better imo. they put up a bundle on sale but they have a mission which is active for everyone (but the boost are less,  30% extra xp, only for tech tree tanks). https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/premium-shop/progetto-m35-mod-46-bundle-extension-0518/

 

Something like this is ok as everyone is getting the benefit of the mission which directly helps with grinding a line. Ours is not even close. I understand that asia is a small server and they have to monetize more, i also get that many of the guys just bought the progetto during the marathon and hence selling it again so soon will be difficult and may not get many customers, hence maybe missed targets. But the carrot you dangle to attract people should be thought out properly.

This is plain ridiculous. Nearly everyone who got a marathon Prog - whether they purchased it or ground it out - will now be wondering why they bothered (with a few exceptions like me, who don't give a damn about any of those missions - as lucrative as they are - because spending minimum cash on this mess was what I valued most).

 

I'm probably just going to go back to working on personal missions, so I can pick up more female crew, enough so that I won't worry about throwing a couple at a line which might not be any good.

I'm not even remotely concerned about the bonuses applying only after buying the bundle. I got the 46 at a steal, and I know we'll also get the non paid for tree discounts ar a later date anyway. If people want to pay for them, well thats there choice.

 

Besides I'm getting the x2 just about every game anyway, which is way better if you're not just pushing the Italians.

 

Don't we also have the IS7 and cent line already in play at the moment. It kinda defeats the purpose of them with 3 in play.

no regrets with the marathon prosciutto...it’s a great tank that’s very fun to play...anyway, who wants to pay for missions?

 

im also farming personal missions to get another girl, but I’ll probably get 6th sense before that happens cos i’m doing ok in it with x3s etc
