Last discount for crew retraining was over 16 specials and four months ago.

Crew retraining discount was 6th May then before that was 29th April and 28th January. Btw why the hell would you have this discount on consecutive weeks? :facepalm:

 

I've got 17 new tanks ready to go with crews that need retraining. I can just about justify paying gold when on discount but those tanks can rust in the back of the garage rather than give WG full gold costs.

I notice last weekend WG EU had discounts on a lot of tier 8/10 tanks and we just had the new line of Chinese tds released so a lot of crews need retrained or brought. :sceptic:

 

So are WG EU being incompetent or moneygrabbing? Probably a bit of both.

 

P.S WG NA got crew retraining discount this weekend so this isn't a global Wargaming policy to try and squeeze gold out of you so I'm leaning towards the incompetent. :angry:

Garage slots, barracks space and crew retraining are things that usually don't come that often on discount. Never have been, not even once a month. Heck it took over 6 months between garage slots discounts the last time. Then again, not really complaining. As WG toss more free garage slots then anything else it seems. As I've not bought one for ages. And I have 24 free slots and growing.

Yeah and it's been ages since they had it to. But as you know, NA have more events and discounts then any other server. As that's more or less what's keeping it alive. And getting people to return now and then. I suspect it would not be on 20K for so long at peak hours if they had the specials EU had all the time.

Depends on how they set up December. As before, most of the big discounts is part of the end of the year specials. And did not appear until mid January. Like the Garage slots sales that did not appear until Jan 12th one year.

I don't expect crew retraining even once a month, Id be happy every 8 weeks or so.:)

 

On sorta the same topic - Sneek Peek Posts on WG website, almost a waste of space !

Especially when we get pearls like this from last month "we aren't spoiling any of our plans for now. Instead get yourself ready for a big suprise" :facepalm: Thanks for that.

 

I miss FTR and the "insider" info which gave exactly what is on discount for the upcoming month.

This being WG europe it would not surprise me to find out tomorrow that in fact there IS a retraining discount on this w/e. 

 

The important thing is to remain calm and under no circumstances should you retrain for the full gold price, the in game gold is pretty useless now if you've been around for a bit there's not many tech tree premiums worth it - so the main way of getting you to part with it is crew retraining and Camo 

 

I'm in the same boat, they've been quite clever  as there's been loads of tank sales since the last crew skill reset and sales of berlin crews etc - now they are hoping we will run  out of patience

Since WG just released a new tech tree there is a very good chance we'll be waiting at least a month longer for a crew-retraining discount.

 

I've noticed as well that it's been way longer than normal for us to get this crew retraining discount and frankly it's a bit annoying.

But whatever you do, don't be tempted to spend gold on normal crew retraining because then you are just playing into their little game. Have patience and prove you have a stronger will than them, wait for the discount.

 

Same goes for all these new OPremium tanks, don't be weak willed and give into the temptation to buy them. Don't spend money on something that will be bad for the game in the long run or it will just get worse for everyone over time.

Agreed. It's just too expensive to retrain crews for full gold. Looks more and more like a cynical move from WG EU now I think about it.

Another month passes and still no discount on retraining crews. 

WG EU post Sneek Peek: September "this special is packed with a vast selection of discounts" Seems not that vast.

Don't get me wrong, plenty of nice discounts this weekend but I can't help but think the absence of crew retraining is deliberate. 

 

Longer this goes on the more cynical this looks. A year of pushing premium tanks, now this just looks like they trying to squeeze every cent out of us.

Well, I think they are keeping those discounts because we keep asking. Now I have 5 tanks I am not gonna play until I can retrain for less. Not gonna fall for their disgusting trick.
