I think it's fair to say that a few players need to manage their expectations. December had some huge end of year bonuses and some first time events. Players can't expect tier 8,9 or 10 discounts every month, nor things like equipment sales so quickly again.

 

There is still cool stuff planned, but nothing on the level of what has came at the end of December.

Hmm,two discounts for heavy tanks?

"Slow and Steady"

"Heavy Duty Weekend"

 

I hope that "Africa: Beginning of the End" will bring something for  light tanks too.

Ehm... management of expectations is part of YOUR job and Wargaming marketing, not that of the players. Not a very smart thing to put out there to be honest. I still say Wargaming needs a serious boost to it's marketing department, it would solve a boatload of issues.

Well, I guess nobody expects high tier discounts since you said that another Top of the Tree even will be in February. Anyway I bought all the tanks I wanted already so I won't be angry if you will take a rest for a while :coin:

Weekend events are never planned week to week, they're planned out for the entire month.  If asking players not to expect the same stuff in January as you got in December is being unreasonable, then nothing else I can say will change your expectations for that.  It's a 2 way process and some players need to stop thinking their specific needs are the only thing we should cater for.

 

I'm advising you here and now that January is going to be nothing like December. I'd have thought that would be pretty obvious to most players and expectations can be managed accordingly without further input from myself or my team members. I'm sure later in January I'll still see requests for things like equipment sales or tier 8/9/10 discounts regardless, or players saying the entire event is "rubbish" because that 1 single thing they want isn't there. It's the never ending circle of weekend special announcements.

Well I for one have spent up. And I guess this was the cheeky plan for December​ all along  :sceptic: - lol

 

I had a garage full of tier 6 tanks and now I have a garage full of tier 7 tanks (with some higher tier beauties) and its gonna take me a while to recoup my spending and get these tanks to elite, so a few quiet months will suit me down to the ground.

 

And the wifey will be happy with a few quet months of tanking too - ROFL

Last time Sweet Dreams Are Made of Steel was half price tier 6 tanks.  Handy for anyone making a last dash at the IS-6 mission.

 

Hmmm... I notice Chinese tier 6 are already 30% off that weekend as part of the March of Nations, lets hope they put batteries in the calculator this time. :veryhappy:

So there won't be any monthly missions for silver or premium time? Sounds fun :(

Ectar, what about the Monthly Missions? Don't see them in-game nor in calendar (at least until 16.01).

 

I'm missing this 250/300K silver daily :)

 

And what about Rest of the Month Missions? Some preliminary info, pls...

Sneaky Sniper. Time to remember the good old days of ambushes and stealth. They’ll never know what hit them!

 

Wait... you mean that finally we gonna see teams filled up with TDs that will kill enemies without even getting spotted?

 

Wow, at last... it's been so long since we last seen that kind of thing...:trollface:

People whining all the time.... More more more is all I hear. Your not entitled to free stuff/ discounts. If they come accept, or play another game. Stop venting your ridiculous internet trolling.
