Fellow tankers,
For once, something positive in this section of the forum.  :teethhappy:

So I was busy beating the crap out of Tier 5 and 6 tanks in that über broken T-28E playing my T-28E with decent results and I ended the game with Large Caliber and Lehvaslaiho's Medal (2+ kills, at least one Tier higher). Back to the garage, a nice coupon was waiting me "to congratulate me for that epic medal": -20% on the whole shop.

 

Even if it's a trap to lure me into spending cash (again), I still welcome this, as:

-obviously, my wallet would bleed less if I wished to buy anything

-it rewards the player's efforts to carry games

-due to the reason above, it might motivate some players to do their best and thus improve

 

Thanks WG. :) Does anyone know if there is a way to use the coupon on an already discounted vehicle? :P

 

(Sorry if such a topic already exists, I haven't found it)

Got 8 kills and Ace tanker on WZ-111 1-4 today, but no coupon :(

I know of another player who got his after getting a levhaslaho's in his E25.

I wonder if it's random or dependant on other factors

Not sure. Pretty sure mine was just for a top gun. Might have bees a Pascucci's though.

I guess you have a small chance to get such a coupon whenever you get an Epic Medal.

If the conditions were fixed and the drop rate  was 100% under the right conditions, players would predictably farm like mad to accumulate those, thus breaking the gameplay.

I'm more inclined to think that they're meant for specific players, even if they might have a chance to trigger. Can't blame them, if the coupon said "you're doing so well in the game, maybe it's time to dust off that credit card?" there would be a massive uproar.

 

Just like the '5x experience on premium tanks after first win' missions didn't seem to care too much about the result, but something that triggered for players fitting with certain requirements (like busy with a grind, not playing a lot of premium tanks, who knows).

 

(I had a good game a few hours ago in Type 62 (R-W+Orliks), and no coupon.)

The conditions could be fixed with a 100% droprate, but with an additional condition something in the lines of "did the player receive a coupon in the previous 6 months", or "did the player spend any money on this game during the last 6 months"
 

Probably something of the latter, in an attempt to monetize on players who normally wouldn't spend any €€€.

I had 3 epic medals earlier that day before I got mine. Medals I've seen others get coupons for.  I got a Lehvaslaiho medal in my AC 4 when I got my offer. And as OP. It was a 20% discount offer on anything. So it might be random on when and if you get it. It was valid for 7 days.

Just pick any bundle or tank from the store. And select your coupon when you select payment option. It work's even if the tank or bundle is on discount. So the discount stacks with your coupon.

Got a coupon from a Lehväslaiho's medal but no coupons from Radley or Pool's. I wonder if you are limited to only getting 1 coupon :mellow:

I got a coupon the other day (Sunday, while on Chipmonk's stream) for 20% off an IS-6, valid for 12 hours.

Meh.

Got two before. One for going to tankfest, voucher for discount on Tiger 131.
Only thing is that despite 11 days left on the coupon, it had already been removed from the shop.

*this is the sound of one hand clapping*  the other didnt know what it was up to.

The other one was a 20% off anything. Which I didn't spend as there were no specials on, and the one tank I might have been tempted to buy (Ruby, for the crew) had just been removed from sale before I received the token.

According to the posts above, i seems this coupon drops more easily when you get a Lehväslaiho than RW or other.
I'll add a poll later

Yeah, I also got a random Lowe rental for 7 days a few months ago when I was running a bit low on credits - it was given "to earn some credits". I mean, I'm not even mad - currently Lowe is a pretty decent tank. Although a 100% crew could've been good - 50% crew sucks. :D

Bribe people with discounts.

Funny how ive played this game since 2011 and never gotten any coupons, only a "special deal" package for buying a tier 10, containing gold and credits, but i hear about people getting coupons left and right..

Never really thought of it like that and it wouldn't surprise me if some bright spark at WG thought isn't the best time to encourage a player to spend money when they are sitting back and basking in their own glory of just how awesome they are at this game.
