unfortunality again a news w/o the information how much GE we must spend to buy the temp. available vehicles.
relating to the japanese event:


I thought you’d ask why it didn’t have it, but no worries — future specials after this one will include the GE price in the article.



Everything is very good, everything is very nice. Where is the APDS-FS for the Type 69-IIA? Because at the moment it is using ammunition almost 20 years older than that tank, and the issue of the APDS-FS is already reported.
Apparently it’s too much work to add a bullet to the game.

Is there any plans for adding Bengali crew voice for the T-69 IIG?
Also gaijin should add T-69IIG’s rubber paded tracks and increase it’s power to weight ratio(It’s incorrect in game)

The GE price is listed in game (obviously). Why not just look there?

because some of us may be still at work and have no access to the game until evening…

Its, the chinese!!!

So why not just look in-game when you can? It certainly can’t hurt Gaijin to include that info in the post, but it’s really no big deal if they don’t. A player will find out when the fire up the game. Simple as.

yes I can get the info when I look into the game - but I also then get the news on events and new vehicles - so in your logic why GJ posting news in this forum???

its all about curiosity…

The news and other updates include a lot more info besides one specific thing. I.e., history, background info, how to obtain a vehicle or participate in an event, etc. The GE cost of a vehicle is one very simple point that’s easy to learn by logging into the game. You’re going to anyhow, right? So just check it out the next time you login.

Nah, it’s all about instant gratification. Some people have no patience and just can’t wait for anything. If it was simply a matter of curiosity, then you’d be fine waiting until your next login to find out.

But whatev. It is what it is. Cheers and have a great weekend out there on the virtual battle field!
