As the title says. When? 

 

We can buy every other reserve, why cant we buy 25% and 50% credits for both 1 and 2 hours? They should be more expensive than the rest but still available. Or even put them in the bond shop at a push.

Getting really frustrating having to wait and grind FL every month for credits and credit boosters.

They'll never sell credit boosters because it would break game economy even further and they wouldn't be able to sell credits directly (for money) in the shop.

You can IIIRC, in game 

EDIT: Or at least you could previously if you went in the store they were in a bundle for 5500 gold, which had 50% credit boosters in it, with some other booster.

They have sold them in the past - they were part of a package sold in the run up to one of the Ranked seasons.

This will be a slap in the face for the people who put the effort in grinding FL in order to get the boosters. Isn't this your position about selling reward tanks in the bond shop?

Credit boosters have never been JUST frontline from day one. Could get them from bonus codes, ranked (earlier ranks also which were easy for everyone) Various missions during specials. and Other regions such as NA you can buy them in bundles with other reserves straight from the premium shop occasionally.

I'd love to be able to sell boosters.

 

I would flog almost all my two hour ones and roll in the credits...

Do you seriously believe that?

As I said they have definitely sold them before, I have about 40 credit boosters and only have so many because I bought a package from the in game store for 5500 gold as I gave up on Frontline a while a go.

credit booster were available in-game shop for a very long time, they removed that  bundle few patches ago, it was something like 20 crew xp boosters+20 battle xp boosters + 20 credit boosters 50% for 2 hrs, if i remember correctly. 

with booster freely available i rarely played my tier 8 prems, tier 9s with booster did as good as tier 8 prems without boosters, i guess that is one of the reasons they removed them.

Credit boosters have been sold at least once on EU.

 

The reason why WG won't sell those is pretty clear: People would buy those instead of premium tanks and/or premium time.

 

EDIT Major_Gitgud there said basically the same thing before me  :)

 

EDIT2: And Shane...

 

Reading is hard for me.

Would this be more profitable than just buying credits? Comes down to the same thing anyway.

Now you can buy 10 1h credit boosters for 1,5k gold, 6 times in the Homefront mode. I don't know if you can get them by playing too, but that is best you have now in terms of buying credit boosters. Hope it satisfies your need, certainly did satisfy mine. :)

It might be blasphemy for you but maybe try to press less on the 2 key ?

One doesn't have to be pressing the 2 key all the time in order to want more credit boosters or credits. I would assume OP is in a position some find themselves after a lot of time spent in the game. He wants to buy back tanks to mark them or just play them, equip them and use consumables on them. Since we haven't had a consumable or equipment sale in a while, one can guess OPs reserves are running low.

Well, he is playing in a clan that is able to activate credit boosters to my knowledge.

Do you think clans run credit boosters 24/7 and as far as I've met OP in battle it's always been late at night when I don't think any clan is running boosters. That might be his only time he is playing, like it is for me so I wouldn't be able to get any use of clan boosters.
