What's this methinks?

A message in game congratulating me on four years of playing (most of them rather poorly).

And what did I get for such unflinching loyalty?

20% off anything in the Prem Shop!

Amazing!

Thanks:sceptic:

Whining?

It's called sarcasm.

Besides, something isn't free if I have to spend money to get it now is it?

Technically, it is free. You got the discount for free. Will anything be different if you dont use it? But will it help significantly if you were  planning to get something in the prem shop anyway? Yes.

 

Dont complain about a free discount, If you dont want to spend money on the game then it doesn't matter, and if you do its a free 20% off. They didnt have to give you anything..

I guess from the perspective of someone (like myself) who has been involved in marketing for so long, you get to see straight through the 'generosity' and see it for what it really is:

'Ok, you've been spending fairly regularly for four years, have a free chance to give us more money'

"You got the discount for free." I don't understand what this means.

I have no doubt that WG did not do it out of being kind to their loyal players, All im saying is that if you would of usually spent that money anyway, its just a good thing.I got one of these discounts awhile back few days before i got 30k gold for myself. I would of got the gold either way discount or no discount.

 

But i guess on the other hand it would just encourage people who dont usually spend as well. So it kinda depends on the way you look at it

If he doesn't buy anything will he still get the discount?

So true ... reminds me of a french humorist, wanting in a shop to get for free the "gifted" bottle of a pack of water.

How is the discount for free if in order to use it he has to pay? In the context of purchasing free literally means 'without charge' but there must be one in order to get the discount  so it is most certainly not free in any way shape or form. Even if you want to argue that point he got it for playing the game for 4 years... twice not free! double not free!

 

Did I mention it was not free?

 

Free 20% off... as opposed to a 20% off he has to pay for? sounds bonkers when you think about it no?

 

I agree with you that its not something to be annoyed or upset about.. assuming he is either or both of those.

 

stop whining OP and go and buy some stuff!

You can’t consider that as a prize. Its a discount. There are some things I would point to be bad (from my perspective):

 

1. I got discount coupons like 5 times already and am no veteran (and all where 30%) so what makes this 20% any special?

2. What WG gives you is virtual, does not have any "unit production cost" - so they don’t "fail" if they not sell it. Its a case of  "here, buy this discounted, but if you don’t, we don’t care". Much appreciation for being "loyal customer". Bottom line, you get whatever, but we get the money.

3. If WG wants to make it a prize let it "feel" like being one - 1 mil. credits, t3 tank, 500 gold, 50 boosters... whatever. All that costs them the same - nothing! But nooo, there is no money for them involved - so gtfo player.

I used my 30% coupon on premium time.  My premium account costs me 15p a day.  About €0.19.  Not bad for the two games I play.

Imagine...

 

Guy runs a marathon (with a paid entry, of course). He comes to a finish line. Organizer shows him their appreciation: come to our kiosk, we have a marathon (donations financed) t-shirt for you - for 80% of the price.

Actually if you check it i think you will find it's not off anything there are limitations on it.
