this has been bugging me for quite a while now, and I haven't been able to find a satisfactory answer yet.
Is it possible to get promotions on tier VIIIs (or higher) and if not, could it be made possible?
Yes I ask because I'm partial to this kind of promo (I want the KT & Ferdi)
Many thanks in advance for any constructive reply
I'm afraid this is very unlikely. Tier 8 tanks are intended by design to take a long time to get both in credits and experience. Dropping them to 50% is a huge discount. Sadly some aspects of the game are time sinks and you have to put the time into the game to acquire them. If you could get everything quick and easy then then having tech trees and advancement becomes pointless and you have nothing to look forward to. Another issue you have to consider is the very minute tier 8 tanks are discounted, players then would start asking for tier 9 discounts or even tier 10 discounts...
The tier 9 discounts we had recently was for a very special introduction of the tier 10 tank destroyers and Mediums. If we win gold joystick the same discount is going to be applied for all tier 9 tanks, not just meds and tank destroyers.
I can't say never however. We're constantly looking at ways to introduce new and interesting bonuses which offer different things for different players.
