I wonder why we have never seen discount on crew qualification. 500 gold is quite a lot.

A discount every now and then would be nice.

 

 

Well this is not something that you will be doing a lot anyways, so the amount saved by such a special during an average year would be quite insignificant. Not saying im against it, just that there is a long list of things Id like to see recurr instead

Have you noticed that WG does only these specials with XP multiplier? They never do something with credit multiplier, which would be awesome because it would be new and different and immediately useful.

 

It's a business decision pure and simple. The higher the tiers you play the more credits you need, which creates a big incentive to buy Premium Tanks, Premium Accounts. The whole 'economy' of World of Tanks (which does not really deserve the name economy at all, since everything - tanks, gold etc. - is account-bound and cannot be traded freely between players) is based upon the principle of creating as many incentives for players to spend real money as possible while maintaining the impression that the game is free to play. The change that 'gold' ammunition can now be bought for credits should also be seen in this light; it has massively increased demand in credits, which indirectly translates into more revenue. Yes, World of Tanks is free-to-play, but unless somebody has insane amounts of spare time he will hardly be able to play successfully on higher tiers, let alone be able to get high-tier premium tanks, those few available in marathons being the exception to the rule. It all works amazingly well, which is why Wargaming is so successful in comparison to other so-called free-to-play titles. No wonder Victor Kislyi is one of the few billionaires in the gaming business, apart from Gabe Newell and a couple of Asian guys.

 

So - I don't think Wargaming will hand out credit multiplier bonuses again. Won't happen, just like they will never reduce the role of gold ammunition in the game.

"2016 was a good year for World of Tanks. We have introduced many great changes and additions to the game in order to enhance your gaming experience"

 

You really are full of it..

 

Flooding the server with tier 5 op artys, clown tanks and e25 sales aint a good job, and u have done all twice at least.

 

 Lowe had some love, other than that, lousy year, with Eu playerbase beeing mocked at every turn..

 

(i wont even mention the lack of proper mm)

 

We could hope wgEU to be nicer to players in 2017, but then it wouldnt be wgEU i guess..

Pathetic, just lost for words.

A simple weekend special.

Does anyone in Paris noticed that this is end of the year? It happens once every year. Like once every 52 weeks. Maybe do a special worthy of it?

 

Yeah, I know WG, you showed us middle finger on the anniversary, on the Halloween, on the black Friday, on the Christmas, so I guess it would be too much to expect some respect from you in 2016.
:D:facepalm:

 

they kind of short in $$$, not enough $$$ in their bank, stingy is one of lots of word they deserve.

they close the tap of incomes to their comuunity so they should buy it, no other way to make decent in battle.

idiots not die, they just replaced.

Yeah, disappointed they wouldn't do a equipment discount, at this time.

 

 

I thought they will give us discount at Christmas.

 

But since we didn't get it, I was hoping to see that on New Year's celebration.

 

Well... I was wrong... once again...

 

Equipment is so damn expensive. Is it really hard to give a little discount for a few days???

I think this special was very nice, and a good followup on the one that just ended.

 

We all think you are retarded. Is a crappy special, you are a shitty kid if you like and lick this crap.

No - only random battles. And even in those only when you finish the battle no worse than 10th by XP.

Hope you've had a great Christmas, wish everyone a happy New Year.

I particularly appreciate the old special with better conversion rate free xp to crew xp overlapping with the new better xp conversion rate, gold to xp.

lol, you need a hug? :)

 

like and lick? Are you sure you posted this on the forum you intended?

 

1. Solid tank discounts. 

1/2 of the new tanks either free or heavily discounted. All T8+ tanks discounted

 

2. 5 FREE swedish female crew members for everyone. 

 

3. Various boosters galore

Its just raining personal reserves. 

 

4. Massive crew xp bonus

I like this more than the normal xp bonuses. Top 10 means less people are motivated to log in and afk. 

 

5. Free xp to crew xp boost. 

Ive spent 210 000 xp to get 10 more commanders with 6th sense. For the next 10 tanks im planning to buy. 

 

6. Crew reset and retraining discount. 

Always awesome. Period. 

 

7. Cheaper conversion of xp to free xp, right after x5 galore ended. 

Cant speak for others, but I used this to get over 300 000 free xp. 

 

 

So I am a shitty kid for thinking that this is a very nice special??? Really? Lol :)
