I mean, there's the discounted tank at the end, but I don't think there's anything more. I played through the base campaign of KW and didn't get anything special, aside from the discount. Same with Sea Lion. No special rewards other than a really good discount on the Snakebite.

 

Speaking of discounts, I put off buying the reward package for KW until today, but the timer elapsed before I could do it and now I'm out one discounted premium. My own fault, though. I was too absorbed in playing a different game and it just slipped my mind.

 

Yes, thanks for the info...I already have Snakebite and I have Ripper too (this tank is Ripper without skin), so basically not much to look forward to..I will play it once maybe but I've still to finish Sea Lion OP...played only two chapters of it..

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

I think you should definitely give KW a go. I found it the most entertaining of the four campaigns. The second and final levels especially. Definitely some cool effects in those two.

 

In some ways, I'm a little disappointed that all the campaigns have been so short. The fact that three of them have only been three chapters, with the first campaign only being four chapters, makes me less inclined to bother following the narrative. I just skip the intros and epilogues and go right to the fighting. Four cutscenes isn't enough to immerse myself in story.


Be verbose - you have a vocabulary for a reason.

 

Good with words; bad with tanks. At least I can talk you to death.

Purchased the Kennedy's war bundle. Got the boosts, 3 days of premium, garage slot and 257,534 silver for already having the M4A2E4. Never received the Ace op.

You should have got it, unless you've already done it previously. If that isn't the case then try a support ticket. 

 

I liked the Kennedy's War, it's really good, although I'm glad I could use the ammo pickup. It's a shame, I enjoyed the 2506, but probably won't be able to use it again due to the low ammo count and the ridiculously low economies in Warstories without the secondary objectives bonuses. It's a shame, I quite enjoyed playing it...  :(

Honestly. Hmmm how to say it politely.

boring! And painfully easy. Completed the whole thing in 15 min and never needed to collect a repair kit. 

I’d sooner have spent my time playing live fire exercise. That one has more difficulty than Kennedy’s war. 

Swing and a miss. Better luck next time.

It was fun really like the maps "hint hint" but to be honest I wont be playing it over because I dont need the prem tanks I was very disappointed that we didnt get the 20k free xp or silver so the rewards for the op isn't enough to keep me playing the op

I've played all 4 war stories now and I found that all 4 are pretty generic....I've seen better AI in minecraft.....arty can snap shot you straight back to your garage....and giving us unupgraded tanks and then giving us the option to buy packages with our own silver and xp (or free xp) is so moronic. In my honest opinion you should make the war stories give xp and silver at slightly higher rates but only on the story tanks give them a special modification or something like a tank perk like the Krafts Panther has where you don't pay for ammo but make it where you earn 3x xp and silver per battle with just that tank (wallet warrior heaven).....now the fact the AI is so stupid is an insult to the community this is my biggest complaint about this mode considering how big War Gamming actually is and just how much money the company earns on an annual bases I was expecting AI tanks to be able to:
1. Drive Properly
2. Offer a decent challenge
3.Friendly AI shouldn't interupt the player AT ALL
4. Be able to use some form of tactics
Now I know coding can be a long drawn out process but try to keep to a minimum standard before throwing half baked gameplay at the player base it's insulting and it just makes the devs look bad.

Sorry for the long Post/Rant

It adds up, especially seeing how Live Fire lasts roughly five mins.

Kennedy's ammo rack? At least he had one...Finding current president's ammo rack would be a problem...and his turret camo provides much more protection...protects him from having a good idea...
