Today we remember the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord

 

Operation Overlord was the codename for the Battle of Normandy, the Allied operation that launched the successful invasion of German-occupied Western Europe during World War II. The operation was launched on 6 June 1944 with the Normandy landings (Operation Neptune, commonly known as D-Day).

Is there to be any recognition in the game?  Ops, anything?
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

We should have a day-operation that involves only WWII era tanks. And I am not talking about the ones that where on the "drawing board" during WWII.. I am referring to tanks that actually saw service and/or used in battle.

That's actually a very neat proposal!

I think RaiBot's post contains the answer to your question; sadly.

 

But it should not come as a surprise, since someone said that WG did not propose anything special 5 years ago either.

No.  We will not be doing any promotion or event tied to DDay as today is a day of remembrance to respectfully look back and honor the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord.

Well, I wasn't specifically asking for something tied to DDay, I was just making a general suggestion.

Good.

 

I'm tired of every memorial event being brutalized by consumer demands for "BIG SAVINGS" and "COMMEMORATIVE EDITIONS" so that no day is actually anything other than an excuse to eject cash across a counter. 

 

You want something special for D-Day? 

 

Go to a cemetery. Participate in a memorial. Go to a nursing home and talk to a veteran of the landings, because that's where most of them are now and they would love the company.

Honestly I do not see having special ops or maps for consolers to run is disrespectful. WoT Blitz had promoted D-Day maps to engage players. WoT gave a free tank to commemorate D-Day. How is it not respecting those by engaging youth or post-war generations in a way that truly engages them.

 

Sometimes all you have to do is plant a seed. That seed needs to be engaging new generations in history in hope that they'll learn from the history and not be doomed to repeat it.
