With regards to the "different vehicle every day" summer sale? I suppose so, except more specialised in the sense that it'll just be tier VIII tanks (in bundles) whereas advent calender also included lower tier tanks and things like gold or premium time.

Like any retailer WG have to get rid of excess stock by having sales, they can't store those tanks indefinitely or the engines would seize.

You're right, literally no other game developers or platforms hold a big summer and winter sale... oh wait... ;)

 

I understand that not all of the decisions we make are always popular but if you don't like the sale, just don't buy anything. I would hazard a guess that just like I find great games on Steam that I wanted at a discount, players that wanted a specific tank will be very happy when it pops up with a reduction.

Silly Conway... you're on the forums where logic and reason fly out the window. Shu shu!

Look, my gripe is with this silly xmasy calendar format, not with price reductions as such.

I like the format, its nice... Even if I don't buy anything (which I never do)... It's still a nice thing to check out

Now - if WG would actually state upfront, upon which day which premium will be sold, or at least say..... over these X many days these specific tanks will be sold... but they wont, people will keep guessing now, a mystery, and then depending upon the success, they will add the rarer T8 ones in.... maybe...

I need to know in advance.

If I cannot plan my expenditure,

I just end up buying nothing.

Their loss, not mine.

Logic, on an internet forum?

Good sir, go to your office and think about what you just did.

We can't have this kind of behaviour around here.

Anything else would be surprising and a bad move from a financial point of view. New premiums sell well enough for full price, the old ones probably aren't as popular any more so just throw a discount at them and there's bound to be some poorly informed suckers thinking they're getting a good deal on a good machine for earning credits.

"Like any retailer WG have to get rid of excess stock by having sales, they can't store those tanks indefinitely or the engines would seize."

A thought has occurred to me.. how do we know these tanks haven't been used before.  I mean they would be able to tell which accounts are no longer in use...    Someone could have had some of the early ones for ages!

Offer it with a bit of camo paint and we'd not see any of the scratches...

I really hope the Defender is nerfed so that I can get a refund. I don't mind if it's cash or gold but I won't accept credits.

Hey! It's like Xmas only now it takes place during the colder months of the year!

 

Any chance of finding Defender in the calendar? :B

Not to mention all the storage space these excess tank take. It ain't free.
