When was last ammo discount? Anyone remember? Any chance there will be some in future? Even for standard ammo only would be good enough. *cries in corner*

Many many years ago. I don't even remember when, so it might've been before I even started playing.

Puh... My guess is 6 years ago? Maybe there will be a discount again after they removed the buy-for-gold-option. (and reset the price to 100k credits per shot)

It was before they brought in the option to buy premium ammo for credits and it was only a discount on premium ammo.  So six years ago or something?

The last ammo discount was back then when premium shells were only available for gold.

 

I dont get the point of this topic to be honest.

Ah no, there was a discount on premium ammo for credits as well. Once, to my recollection.

Prem shells have been available for credits for as long as I have been playing this game and I have experienced multiple ammo discounts. 

 

That being said, it has (literally) been years since the last ammo discount, so don't expect another one.

Oh please, no. Don't do this. *has flashbacks to 2013* Please. Don't do this to me.

 

People whine & complain about goldspam, but they never drove in those prem ammo discount weekends. So much prem ammo fired... I still have flashbacks. You don't know what premium ammo spam is, until you played during those ammo discount weekends...

 

Game has improved alot since then tho, also in MM; have a look at how it was back then: 

'Fair MM' anno 2013

Major source of income for them via the necessity for premium accounts and tanks....you don't discount your cash cow. And yeah, years ago.

No idea what point you're trying to make here, as none of us stated anything to the contrary when it comes to premium ammo being available for credits. Your post is not in any way connected to those you quoted, and should have been posted by itself really.

 

Also, unnecessary use of 'literally'; It has been years indeed, and the literal meaning is implied quite strongly already.

Just because you don't understand doesn't mean you need to write in this manner.  I understood him and the literally word was reasonably used. Play nice .

  Well, I don't really care about premium shells. The thing is that some tier 8 tanks like centurion 1 have hard time breaking even since standard ammo is quite costly per shot. So I figured that If there was some ammo discount coming... I could stock up. But looks like there won't be coming any.

Wasn't there also some issue where you could buy the ammo reduced and sell it after the event ended to make credits, so people were investing in a squillion rounds and making millions out of it?

Correct, and then people complained when WG counteracted that at the major shell price change of 0.8.6 (and major economic change) check here: Ammunition changes 0.8.6 + link to that patch economic changes

Prior to that patch, you could make free money by buying the right shells on discount when a new shell price balance was coming up.
