Ironic... it's an event celebrating British tanks.... yet the event times for the bonus are really not suitable for British players. 11pm -2 am ..... -sighs-.... I better buy in more coffee :P.

This part:

Between the hours of 15:00 and 18:00 PST on Saturday (23:00 and 02:00 GMT):

Bonus Event

The top 25 players achieving the highest amount of experience in a single battle (premium/daily modifiers do not apply) with a British tier V and up vehicle will earn 2,500 Beta Gold30 Days of Beta Premium Time500,000 Silver and our kudos!

Additionally, play 10 battles between the hours listed above and you'll earn one week of Premium time after launch!

 

 

Hope to see you there en masse, looking forward to finding out who the winners will be!  Side note, the winners will be determined after the event;  I will put the list up on the forum and the payouts will be done manually, so there will be a delay in getting your prizes.

 

Hope you've also noticed that this is an OPEN BETA weekend!  If you have friends that have not had the chance to join, now's the time to get them in!!!

So does the 10 battles for a free week of premium and other bonuses apply to all vehicles or just British ones?

The beta will be open again! That's right guys and gals! Starting a 2am Pacific on Dec 13 (10am GMT), anyone can download the game and start playing. We have heard your concerns that their are too few players in some tiers so we decided to open it up one more time. It will close again at midnight Pacific on Sunday (8am Monday GMT) so be sure to tell all of your friends.

 

We're also having a super special bonus event on Saturday! Play 10 battles from 3pm-6pm Saturday, December 14 and you will earn yourself one week of premium time, gifted to your account at launch! Be sure to click the link because we have a TON of stuff planned!

Modifiers refer to the daily bonus modifiers (5X for the first victory of the day or crew xp modifiers).

They'll be able to play for 7 days if they don't have an Xbox Live Gold membership.  If they have an Xbox Live Gold membership, they'll be able to play whenever the fancy tickles them :smile:
