So - I get a ticket for 30% off in the Prem shop for 6 years of service (Hell I've been where I work for over 20 and got feck all for my troubles) which gives me a dilemma.

As tight-fisted as I am - 6 yrs of free play and I do kinda feel I should make use of this, though it won't tempt me into Gold or PremTime.

It sort of feels like I'd be selling my soul.

Thoughts? Any one else faced this dilemma?

I'd say if you have been thinking for a while of buying something, then do it.

 

If you haven't anything particular in mind, forget it (you will be paying the 70% don't forget)!

I got one of those recently. Though not for 6 years. 

It expired after a week without being used. 

 

I might have bought a Rudy, but they removed it from the shop the day before I got the coupon. 

 

Instead of buying anything in WOT, I instead bought Mirrors Edge Catalyst on sale for about 1/4 of the price of a tier 8 prem in WOT and have been enjoying that immensely.

Why you wouldn't want to get Prem time is beyond me, selling your soul might sound nice and dramatic but just comes over as twatty tbh. If you enjoy the game and have the spare cash then don't feel guilty aout spending some money on it. I buy gold/prem time pretty regular and last I checked my soul was still intact... my clanmates opinions may differ....

They gave me something like one of those after I made a purchase, typical WG giving me the finger. Don't bother unless there is something you really want.

its your choice, its a game you've spent time on, gotten enjoyment from, why not use the discount and get something you'll use?

I mean 6 years of free play, why so stingy on contributing to the game you've played so much?


 

I like the game, I play the game a lot, so I have no issue with spending money on it, after all, other games cost just as much, or more than wot these days anyway....

Well, it's really up to you. However, currently the only interesting special is the SU-122-44. Now 19 euro... so with the 30% it would be 13 euro. Now this is just my opinion.

 

Don't use it for lower tier premium tanks, as they often are being sold with 30 or 50% discount already. Unless it's now being on sale.

One would expect to get some kind of gift, for instance a free tier 8 premium tank, after 6 years of lojalty... But it's just typical WG: Thank you for playing our game for 6 years, now please give us more money! :D

WG and morals don't fit in the same sentence.

Current state and direction of the game suggest me to spend minimum amount of money (ideal amount is zero). This is my opinion.

 

On the other hand, if you are willing to use the discount and your choices are gold or premium account, then gold is the better choice. because it is more flexible, you can buy premium account with gold as well, therefore you will not lose. Additionally, you can even buy premium account on discount (at least twice a year) with gold and get more out of it.

Agreed, Prem time will make you more silver than any premium tank. Unless you have a favourite tank that you would like a crew trainer for.

 

 I have played for six years on 11th May 2017, and received no discount coupon, but then I run constant premium time.

You do realise you could get a year of premium time at the low price of €0.15(6) per day, right?

 

Then again, I spent mine on the Ishizuchi @ Warships.

If its a matter of principle, don't be tempted to give-in for the discount. For most purchases it's a matter of a few euro anyway.

Decide first if you wan't to spend on something you have your eyes on, or just to support the game you have been enjoying for 6 years now. If this is not the case, just let it expire, it's not a big deal.

Was aiming more for humor than twatty but I guess RNG got in the way. Ive never done prem time because tbh my free time is too erratic to warrant it - certainly on say, a month at a time.

Think I will use it, though tier 8 is a little..."interesting" atm

The more you buy, the more you save :P
Buy a tier 8 premium tank if you haven't got one already. Otherwise I'd spend it on gold, since it's always usefuk to have some in stocj to demount equipment etc.
