Hi folks, 

 

30% on tech tree tier 7s is tempting, 15% on higher tiers not so much.  I'm wondering if I should save my credits for later, for tank purchases.

 

Does anyone recall how good last year's Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals were, likewise the Xmas/New Year ones?

For the first few years, the Black Friday was the best. IDK for the last three-four years, hasn't been playing.

WG should sell the Type-59 for 199.95€ this Christmas, maybe they'll get enough funds to fix some of the major problems the game has.

Only Black Friday I remember is the shitstorm created with the T34B, IS6B and TotallyNotAMutzPz58B

 

AFAIR maximum values was obtained when combining some of the Advent Calendar Discounts with New Years discounts, but that really only works for discount gold packages combined with discount in game for gold tanks.

You do realize the founder of WG is a billionaire and the company is racking up 100ths of millions each year? Money certainly is not the or any issue for WG.

As far as I remember that's the most those tiers are ever discounted. It's usually 50% off up to tier 5, 30% off tiers 6 and 7 and 15% off tiers 8 and higher. Same percentages apply to discounted premiums. As Duffer notes above, you have to do some mental gymnastics* with the Christmas/New Year offers to find other deals but they're usually for premium time and/or gold.

I wonder though why they did the -15% tier 8-10 discount so early. I don't think they'll do it again neither on black friday, nor on christmas-events. As far as I remember I was hoping for that to happen last year only to see some premium tank discounts, prem time discounts and some lower tier discounts so I would by some high tier tanks if I was you.

The General Rule for spending credits on events:

 

Cheaper Tanks in tiers that don't get discounts often (9/10)  > Cheaper Modules > Cheaper Consumables > Cheaper Tanks in mid tiers > Cheaper Tanks in lower tiers

Sure, they don't fix things because they lack funds. :rolleyes:

 

Things are the way they are because they rather hoard the money and give as little back to their own product as they possibly can. If they truly wanted anything fixed, they could do it all in about 2 months, and that would include full HD, multi core support, havok physics, balance armor around regular ammo and removal of premium ammo, and everything you can think of. There are plenty professionals around the world that could be hired to get all this done in that sort of time. But they rather use their game as a money cow, milk their players and leave it all glitchy. Russian mentality is the problem, not lack of money.
