I logged in to agree with this. Before clicking, i thought "no, you know what be a good idea, a bloody discount on equipment" and there it was. Yes. I do believe the Russian servers got a 25% discount on equipment during the Fest? I read that somewhere, please correct me if i'm wrong. It should be 50% for everyone, in my opinion. The equipment is what i'm actually saving for these days, got a bunch of new tanks and they're all blind without some coated optics and whatnot. Yes, definitely equipment discounts. Great idea. I subscribe.

I'm the kind of player that stocks up with about 1500 of each consumable(not including food) when these discount weekends come around, something I don't imagine all players doing so if I'm starting to feel the pinch, there must be a lot of players out there that run with the more expensive consumables that are being bled dry of their credits at this point. Ya you could go on some credit grinding run but that's like work if you HAVE to do it just to play some tanks, the game shouldn't really be about anything much other than just playing and having fun imho.

I also stock up huge amounts of consumables when there are discounts.

 

I sold enough for a Deathstar when the Black Market was on and kinda regret it as I really to replenish my supplies. Down to the last 500 or so repair kits...

Well I am a cheapskate when it comes to consumables, basically i think "is this match/team really worth spending a repair/first aid kit for?". Usually, the answer is a negative, but i did see that's starting to affect my performance, so yeah, i'd like to stock up on those as well.

It's Friday and no news on the subject. Yet another weekend without discounts on consumables and equipment? Feels bad. :sceptic:

Don't hold you breath w.r.t. August specials, 2x crew boost this WE, another 3x crew is crucial the last WE, XP fever was last WE, another tank XP WE coming, and a Gamescom 5x XP planned…

No discounts in sight :bush:

Of course it's entirely possible that we may never see discounts on equipment but especially consumables again. I'm sure WG can monitor input/output of credits players are averaging and it's possible that they are going to have the game setup in such a way that we get more credits than we did before but to stop personal credits building to laughably gigantic levels, consumables and equipment will remain never to be discounted. Do you guys think we are making more credits than ever, or the same, or less? For me, I'm always chopping and changing, buying tanks and selling tanks so it's hard to say. Only thing about that is I can't see how it would anything other than very difficult for new players to make their way through this game since they will regularly need to buy new tanks and modules along with struggling to make credits with stock tanks and poor crews etc. What do you guys think, do you think there's some purposeful strategy at play here as to why there hasn't been a sale on these items for so long?

Weekend specials used to be special. That was what made them "special". Now we get a weekend of simple bonuses, Premium tank bonuses and objectives to earn yet more PRs and any other token currency that WG can come up with. It's nice of them to give us something, but even a bonus x3 for first win is now as rare as Churchill GCs.

 

Another weekend related to crew training. It's good to have a bonus as crew training does take a while, but you have to play a stupid amount of battles to make any significant difference to crew skill levels in one weekend. I won't be playing as I am working and then going away. Believe me, I am not exactly gutted that I am missing this weekend event.

 

I do have a few vehicles that could benefit from an item of equipment or two, and I probably could do with making sure that my Consumables levels are also up to scratch. Never mind. It will soon be the Christmas period with every discount you could ever need. :great:

Quick look on the depot says I can wait for the consumables, but I need some equipment for sure.

Some reason like that is probably true but if guys are pointing out there's discounts for equipment and consumables on RU and US servers then its a total hatchet job on EU. I see there's a X4, 50% crew transfer discount, crew training bonus per battle and a discount on garage slots(meh) so I guess someone is taking stock of us pointing out how lame the anniversary/event is and stepped it up a little bit. At least there's something all players can benefit a little bit from, as it was, there really was nothing apart from collecting those tickets for a shop of old junk and stuff we already get every other day and dont really need, so there's hope yet!!
