So, 30% as a discount seems like a nice deal, are you guys waiting on something special?

I don't think there are any premium tanks that I have an interest in and don't already own. That said it would have been nice to see the discount extend to the tech tree as well; every time they use premium store discounts but keep everything in-game at full price is a kick in the face of people looking to spend gold they got in past bundles.

But Summer sale has just ended few hours ago, what are you talking about? For the first time cards are craftable for another month, though.

 

I've finally got around to buying House of the Dying Sun and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

I still have no idea what the whole card/gem/crafting business is about. Sometimes I sell something on the marketplace but I have no idea why people buy these things or what they do with them. :unsure:

Useless trinkets which serve no purpose other than telling other players you have wasted more money on things without any value, except of debatable aesthetic one. Since on sales they give special sales-themed cards away for "free", I simply trade some to make a badge or two and sell rest.

IIRC game creators get some cut from cards bought and sold with "real" money (money in wallet isn't real at all), you could argue that featuring high level (5th level or foil) badge on your profile is a sign of support for favourite game, but really, badges, cards and account levels have no real value.

 

At some point, out of curiosity, I spent some time involved in card trading, it was interesting experience in negotiations, pricing and advertising. Among other highlights was the time when some russian (obviously) guy tried to scam me out of item bunch of pixels worth about 10 euro (it didn't work because I knew exactly how much that item was worth, few days later I finally managed to sell the item and buy heavily discounted game bundle, to this day I sometimes wonder how come that guy knew I had it so quickly after acquisition, do they just have a script scanning inventories of all players?).

I would like a Blackdog, but I know that won't go on sale. Other than that, consumeables sale and xp conversion discount. Wanna get me some Czech action going on.

Ah okay, I'm not missing out on anything then.

 

Could be a script that russian guy was using like you say, if player inventories are viewable/accessible then why not I guess. Money in wallet might not be real money but it saves you from spending real money on games so I can imagine there's people trying to trade their way to free games. Probably not the best use of their time if they're looking for financial gain but eh, russians.

I just purchased the Skorpion G. If they have that at 30% off I am going to mess my pants.

First need to fix mm to me consider buying anything. T8 is unplayable so why would I spend money on t8 tanks?

The only T8 worth getting at this point is the Defender.

This year summer sale was kinda weak... I was hoping for PUBG sale... Atleast 20%, but I guess it sells to well. Also very weak sales for Civ 6, X-com 2 and other year old games... I can get these for that price anytime from kinguin or other sites :(.

 

When it comes to the WG summer sale then I guess only the Defender.

It really is pretty bad, but not really unplayable. I mainly play T26E5 and Skorpion G and those can perform in tier 10 games as well.

 

But every time I see a stock Tiger 2 in these games, I want to give the guy a hug.

Not going to buy any T8 prems until they sort out the MM. And I strongly encourage others to do the same. Sales dropping is the only thing that will make them deal with it.

I was really hoping good discount for Type 62 but since it's T8's only...Dunno if that tier has anything that I need.

Could be worse, stock IS-3 KV-4 Caernarvon  110 T32 all come to mind, at least the Tiger II and VKA get the long 88.
