During the weekend of December 7 to December 10, you will be able to use special discounts in the game client!

Discounts and bonuses:

  • –80% to the cost of accelerated commander training in doubloons
  • –50% to the cost of commander retraining in doubloons
  • –60% Elite Commander XP/doubloons for resetting commander skills

I hope this is just a small part and more info will be added. If not, then this is a mistake and a huge missed opportunity. Discounts on Arizona, WV '41, Monaghan should be present and maybe a free commemorative flag for some combat missions. Pearl Harbor is not just an event of historical significance to U.S citizens and the NA server; it's one of the turning points of WWII, featuring quite a few of the ships in the game from both sides as well as famous naval commanders.

I will be terrorizing Tier 6 in this a lot today, and starting each match in chat with "December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy..."  Lest we forget.

Im not certain of your nationality, but it is not as significant as you think to other countries.

Regardless, it is a missed opportunity to be sure.

I'm from the EU personally. Yet as someone who reads alot of history, especially military one, I can't help but place alot of importance on Pearl Harbor.

I didn't mean that in other countries people go around commemorating the event, just that fans of military games, and especially one about naval warfare know about it.

Aren't they doing some big stream/giveaway thing today?  I could be wrong but I thought that was happening today.

Agree.

I will take out Monaghan - pity there are no submarines to sink.

Texas wasn't at Pearl Harbour, but she's the only US BB I have, so I'll take her for a spin as well.

They name the daily missions after every major naval battle. Since the missions joined we had no extra event. Think that's the easiest way for WG to do this.

You can try to add some CM like @Femennenly or @Gneisenau013 to get some attention to this and if enough player want a change WG may do something.

They are, and it would.

Two years ago, as Dec. 7 was approaching, some players expressed wishes that the Arizona (which was not being sold at the time) be put up for sale on Dec. 7. Those folks were shouted down by those who thought it would be disrespectfully profiteering on the occasion of Dec. 7. Rightfully shouted down, I will add. Dec.7 came and went without the Arizona being for sale. Later in the month, it was made available for purchase.

Whether WG themselves had plans to put it up for sale on the 7th and changed their minds about it or not, no one outside of WG knows.

I suppose you could ask WG to make an Op for it: CV players only, bomb a bunch of moored ships, maybe one or two get underway. Bot AA effectiveness reduction of 40%, a few land-based bot aircraft to give your fighters something to do. Riveting stuff.

Pearl Harbor is not a navel action. It was a sneak attack air assault. World of War Planes should have an event. Last year we got the 75 anniversary flag.

Do not waste money on doing the retrainings; with the coming CV Rework (that also effects AA skills (and maybe CE as well)) there will likely be server wide resets/free resets of all captains for free. And given that is likely only ~2 months away, patience and virtues comes to mind.

1) They never do events for Pearl Harbor. Every year someone asks, every year, it doesn't happen and 2) I think you grossly overestimate how much a Russian company cares about what a bunch of americans think, especially on the NA server, the least profitable server of the 4.

All the above. The Server profitability goes, in order: RU, SEA, EU, NA.

Yes, they are. @Femennenly will be streaming and giving things away. They repeated Friday about 30 times on the stream about it. :Smile_Default:

Take everything RC1138 says with a grain of salt. He’s proven to be dishonest and one of the most toxic forum posters.

A pattern solidly established in 2016 when on the centenary of the Battle of Jutland, Wargaming... ran missions and events in honor of... Brazilian Father's Day.

Pearl Harbor is the most defining moment in US Naval history and perhaps, the most defining moment in US history. Even a post to commemorate the service given by the men and women at Pearl Harbor would have been good enough for me. Take the money/profit part out.

1. Navel action is for belly dancers

2. Last year was the 76th anniversary

I don’t think it would be disrespectful if Wargaming did an event to earn a ship that was present, such as Arizona so players could sail the ship in remembrance. After all keeping the memory of that day alive so the dead are not forgotten is important. And good to have reminders for people so they do not forget.

The ST Alabama was an uproar on all the servers, and the W'V remains to be seen if they actually DO anything, or just slapped a 41' on the release to shut everyone else, to say nothing of the fact all of the servers also complained about a Pre-Rifit WV. If you actually WENT to the other servers' forums you'd know that. But the Russian server, duh, get's the most attention. Hell the actual DEVELOPERS (not just Community Managers) actually post from time to time on the RU/EU forums. And they keep a VERY close eye on the SEA. NA, not so much. It's the least profitable market which makes sense.
