WG is giving us a nice X5 exp bonus in the Christmas special from today (24.12.2016 – 01.01.2017.) BUT it was cut a bit by adding an extra line in the description of the special:
X5 will be damaged since you all plan to play over holidays, so NO X5 all the way, just 26.12.2016. – 01.01.2017. Ok that’s life 🙁
Now we get extra DMG, it says: NOPE you greedy players, 27.12.2016. – 30.12.2016.
Then you log in to the game and get a great news of X5: 27.12.2016. – 29.12.2016.
From 8 days special, we get X5 for 3 days.
