Thanks for the coupon which I will not be using.

 

Though it was very much my intention to renew my premium account, you had to bundle it with a low-tier German Light Tank (I'll repeat: Low Tier, so it's food for FCM PaK seal clubbers, German, so you know it's gotta be bad because that's how things work in COBEUKARA WG; and it's an LT, though to be far, their differences are not as pronounced.)

 

And since you can't use coupons in bundled items, no deal.

 

Pretty sure you had a meeting with some CCs and they asked you to provide an alternative to bundles...? While there's nothing wrong in providing the vehicle, as I'm sure there are folks that want them, I just wanted the 30 days. And WG PA is not WoT PA.

 

Here, have the celebratory GG, WG! GG!

I demand somebody get fired over this! :izmena:

 

(on topic: Yes, I agree the coupons are stupid since they don't work on anything meaningful)

lol.

 

Obviously not.

 

It's not about the money, though. Why bother with the coupons at all if you can't use 'em?

 

Heh... Don't mind my rant. I'll eventually get the premium time but why not give players a failsafe alternative? I don't think the discount applies to gold.

I went and had a look in the premium shop to see what this was about, and I see that cross-platform premium has gone entirely - when did that happen?

 

Doesn't strike me as a very smart move by WG; I play a couple of titles, with varying frequency - once my existing premium time is used up, I think it highly unlikely I'll maintain two sets of premium time; I'll just pick whichever game I'm regularly playing...

You people can scoff all you want.

 

This person has brought their issue to the forum, one person in a tiny minority, if the shills are to be believed.

That means there are many, many more who have done exactly the same thing but not come to the forum

 

It's the same for the few that post #walletclosed. there are many more with closed wallets that don't bother to post.

 

I spend very little these days, as it seems WG don't give a flying fuckk if I don't enjoy the game, due to their rigged RNG and matchmaking.
So fuxkk them right back, in their wallet.

 

Just think how much money WG could make if they fixed the issues in this game and allowed everyone to have a fun experience every time they pressed battle, regardless of their skill level as well as allow people to buy the tanks they want to buy, including the ones reserved for try harders and match riggers

Probably just an oversight. I suspect they bundle these low tiers in with stuff people might actually want not just to increase perceived value but in the hope people will play the things (since they're there anyway) which keeps low tiers populated enough for sealclubbers not to be bottom tier all the time, which means said sealclubbers have more fun and are therefore more likely to spend money in turn.

The fact coupons don't work on bundles must either be WG hoping you'll feel compelled to spend that coupon on something that isn't already a better than normal deal of some kind because they don't want you to save money on anything, or alternatively it might just be good old WG incompetence.

That all depends on the type of coupon. I currently have a 15% off coupon which is usable on anything in the shop.

Getting fed up with bundles, I understand peoples view point on that.

Getting fed up with discounts that don't work when/where you want them to, I understand that one too.

But lets just look at this particular issue....

14 days premium...……………..£6.29

30 days premium, plus a tank....£8.51

90 days premium...…………....£23.49

Maybe WG are awarding a massive compensation to anyone having to have this tank in their garage? Either way, it's a very good deal, and if they choose not to let you get a further discount on it, I don't really blame them. However, if you want to use your discount, can't you buy the 90 days, which works out better percentage wise, gives a larger saving if you can use the discount as well, and doesn't require you to have the tank?

 

P.S. If you actually wanted WG Premium rather than WOT premium, you can get 30 days for £8.52 on the WoWP site, but I guess the WoT discount wouldn't work there

They 'forgot' to put it in the premium shop like they said they would. Instead, if you click your name on the top right of this page, when the box drops down you'll see WG premium at the bottom.

It's a low move by WG to fool more players into accidentally buying WoT PA when they go to the portal.

Thanks for the tip - much appreciated!

 

That's pretty poor by WG! At least you can still find it easily enough via the WOWS shop...

You are not allowed to speak about meetings with CC. There was a meeting with Mailand and Circon a few weeks ago in Paris and it is completly silent what was talked about. Some rumours even say they are forced by WG to not speak about it.

Are we talking about the 30d WoTP + PZ II D?

Are you logged in when you are in the shop?

For me it shows the coupon icon next to the item, so coupons can be applied.

Nah. I could've bought it when it was on sale but I'm not a fan of low tiers.
