I received a 30% discount voucher. But pretty dissappointed on what little I can use it on.

I have played since beta, I own many tanks, there are a few I am yet to purchase, a few days back I was awarded a 30% discount voucher in game, I noticed the new French premium Sauma and thought maybe on payday.

 

Well the voucher cannot be used for time limited offers, cannot be used for gold, cannot be used on sale items, pretty much pointless.

 

I could buy premium, well I had premium pretty much non stop since the servers went live, and played rarely these last two years with my last huge premium time which was well over a years worth only just running out a week or so back, so it's poor value for casual play.

 

So £35 on a tank with no discount or £48 a years premium and probably play even less as the game offers so little to get enthused about these days.

 

Or just let the discount go to waste as it's clearly not aimed at players like me.

In the past you could use these 30% vouchers for anything including time limited offers and sale items.

At the moment there is pretty much nothing worth buying for a seasoned player. WG Marketing fail.

WG can't start being generous. That would counter their core values.

You get these 20-30% discount vouchers automatically if you haven't spent money in a while with them, they are meant to drag you in .... entice you into wanting something, and then you see it's not applicable, but wanting that (or something less) is still on your mind, so you buy it.

The 'anniversary coupons' are still valid for any offer in the shop. I'm not entirely sure the 'random' coupons were ever valid for any offer, though it certainly feels like there were less restrictions before (the current ones are beyond ridiculous, and would be unless you got e.g. 50% off for a specific item).

Yeah, the vouchers are so limited as to be largely useless unless by chance your requirements match theirs. But this is no different than any other money off vouchers IMO.

Eh, I let my last 30% off voucher expire when it wasn't possible to use it to buy the things I actually wanted to.

Yeah vouchers nowadays only seem to be for stuff nobody wants or already has. It's quite disappointing actually.

 

The first batch of vouchers way back had vouchers valid on everything, I once got a 20% or 30% off of everything, of course at the time the premium shop was filled with stuff I didn't need so I didn't use it.

 

So far I've gotten roughly 5-6 vouchers, didn't use any because either they are not valid on stuff I would want or stuff I want is not in the shop (Type 62, AMX 13 57f).

And this is the bit of your psyche that they are aiming at.

 

You had no voucher yesterday and didn't want to buy anything.  You still don't want to buy anything but feel you must because you have a voucher.  Just ignore it and it will go away.

I manage to stack a 20% and a 30% discount to get the S1 for £19 before XMAS but have noticed that most of the coupons now are very restrictive. As mentioned above I think the anniversary coupons are still unrestricted.

Tokens you cant use on anything you would actually want - "brilliant" marketing and pretty much this is the WG standard you can expect at least on EU... since we are here to pay for others...

Same here.

At first I was like: Yaaaayyy!!! and headed straight over to Premium shop. Treat myslef to a shiny new T8 credit farmer.

 

Then the T&C slapped me in the face like being slapped with a cold, wet, raw haddock on a blustery morning in south Wales by a vicar in his underpants.

- No bundles

- No items on discount

- No premium time

- No gold

 

So pretty much all I could spend it on at that time were some t4 premiums... Nice one, WG, Nice one.

I was good to go to buy a nice T8 premium...  Guess I'll be keeping my money.

Yey a voucher for 30% off. Cool wonder if there is anything in the shop worth getting?

Wait what?  - Looks at voucher restrictions.

 

That is not marketing that is bottom of the barrel trolling, but I guess some suckers will fall for it.

Having now cried wolf those vouchers will now go ignored as it is the equivalent of spam and I don't waste my time with that.

 

Except when it is in a tin with a hexi burner in range.

Well I left it. Never bothered, now two little voices each side of my head, one in white saying I was right not to spend £48 on a years premium, a little one in red telling me I should have bought the years premium as if even only playing casual I would benefit and get better value.

 

Well too late, I did buy a couple of games on Steam though that I have never played and that were well reviewed when they were released, and a little different to tanks, Warhammer Vermintide and Tomb Raider (2013) with massive savings of 75% and 85% :)

 

Currently playing Warframe though, though I played Beta but nothing from then nor any Beta status shows since it went to Steam?

 

Edit. Being properly trolled here, another voucher received with 10% off purchases above £30, and 180 days premium i snot available with that discount due to being a bundle currently.

 

Note, I see any bundle with a premium tank already owned will only award a garage slot?

WG punishing players who bought previous by discriminating them within special offers now?

 

So due to previously spending the full RRP on the T-28E F-30 premium tank I am now not allowed any equivalent value of that item if I buy a bundle that is contained in?

 

In effect charging me more for 180 days premium than someone not owning that premium tank.

 

Gee Wargaming, what is with your marketing?
