Something i wondered, a lot of tanks are on discount now (30%) and someone told me they arent discounted in game. In that case , do you get the full gold refund if you buy a tank you already have? Or are the discounted in the game aswell? Or have WG taken care of this somehow?

Can I get more gold instead of the dinner date. I am sure my wife would object.

Yeah, you can get 20 extra gold if you refuse that dinner date.

I was thinking about buying Patton 59 but then I'd also have to book a visit to a psychiatrist...

You will get the discounted equivalent in gold. If you say buy another Löwe you get 8750 (12500*0.7) gold.

Have you tried or are you guessing?

 

The game does not know there is a discount in the premium shop, it will base any refund on the current in game price.  But then there is the current offer of gold with daily missions which could work out better if you complete all the missions.

Your wife would object to free gold?

The game knows if you sell a discounted vehicle, so I think it would be dangerous to assume the game does not know about shop discounts.

Confirmed, you have no clue what you're talking about.

 

Since the discount is in the premium shop and not in the game, meaning, for example, you can buy a Panther 8,8 with 30% off in the premium shop while it will cost you 100% of its gold value if you get it in the game, that means that no, the game does not "know" about shop discounts. In fact, if you sell any of the tanks on offer, you'll get the credits you'd get in any other time too.

 

It's safe to say you can buy tanks you already got 30% off while getting 100% of their value in gold in the game.

Confirmed, you do not know the difference between 'dangerous to assume' and 'it definitely is this way.' I said the former, not the latter.

 

I'm surprised, but on something like this am happy to be wrong :)

You also said "The game knows if you sell a discounted vehicle". These vehicles are not discounted in the game.

If it is discounted in game at the time it knows.

 

It does not know if you sell a vehicle you bought on discount.

 

I think it is pretty safe to assume you will get the full in game gold value.  The only way to test it is to actually do it.

Would be pretty good value , but what did you say about gold and missions?

https://eu.wargaming.../specials/6546/ (will need to be logged in as it is one per player).

 

5500 gold for the price of 5500 gold plus the chance to gain another 10x 250 gold as long as you can play every day for ten consecutive days long enough each day to gain 3500 exp, starting the day you buy the package.

So that 32% free gold instead of 30%. Indeed better value, but barely.

Try again, maybe it was a server glitch.

These are not. I was referring to when they are discounted in game. When you sell a vehicle in game, you get silver anyway even if you paid gold for it, but more significantly, if the price is discounted, the credits you will get are discounted too (at least normally, not sure if there are exceptions)

Exactly. Yes, if you bought it on discount and sold it later you'd get a refund based on full price (although half of that), but yes, after the sale is over it doesn't keep track.

So it seems my advised caution was wise after all?

Caution is always wise.
