Hello,

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) :Smile_harp:

Many thanks in advance for any constructive reply :Smile_great:

tier 9 at tier 8 price only if WoT wins best MMO at Golden Joystick Awards. Similar promotion was made before the arrival of tier 10 mediums and td's (in 7.4 if i remember right).

PS: T95 and T30 are in plans to be bought at the price of tier 8 by me.

In specials they never put tanks tier 8 and above on sale, although there was a tier 9 dispatch (tier 9 tanks on sale) a while ago when they changed the tank tiers

No discounts on tiers 8+ because of balance purposes

The don't want too many high tiers so lows can also have fun. But as you might have noticed it is working as intended xD

It's the way the game mechanics are set up to make players work for tiers 8, 9 & 10.  It should feel like an achievement when you get there and you should be serving your time in the lower tiers gaining experience as you earn the credits you need.  That's the theory anyway.

The fact that it encourages a lot of people to buy a tier 8 premium is purely a coincidence, I'm sure... ;-)

Wargaming has declared that highest tier of discounted tanks will be 7. Although in some special cases higher tears might get discounted like at pre-7.5 release (all T9 medium and TD's were discounted)

The last 50% discount of a tier VIII which I can remember was the ferdinand. But that was a long time ago..

the -50% stops at t8, after that it occasionally, under veeeeewy spezial zercumstances the prices of certain t9 tanks might go down 1mil, but not 50%

I have only 2 tier8s: Panther2 and Ferdinand, and both make good cash. Not (noticeable) less than my tier 7 and tier 6, but then Ferdi is a big damage-dealer and Panther has low ammo-cost.

I guess it will change when I get tier 8 heavies or E50 somewhen in future, hm?

But it was said: Basic game design is to keep all tiers populated. Making higher tiers profitable (i.e. cheaper) would work against the design - and would be veeery bad for WoT in my opinion.
You don't want to hear this, but: get yourself a couple of low/medium tiered fun tanks. Don't worry too much about higher tiers, you don't get a benefit for them (well, for your ego maybe, but that's all).

Yes, that was a Battle of Kursk special(the Ferdinand debuted at Kursk). Other than that, i've never seen a tier 8 special.

Cheers

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.
