Used to regularly top up my consumables every month when the 50% consumables were available, but the supply seems to have dried up!! Have now run out of all my vital consumables and looking at the full price to replace them. Using up my cheaper options now and suffering badly. That large repair kit is so useful!! Have loads of credits but I will not pay full price. What's going on?

I wait for them as rewards or just use the normal three except for large kit on TD as it shocks the cheeky buggers who track you then think you are buggered.

Supply and demand, I bet. It's not the first time it's been a while.

 

The solution is obvious - buy an arseton when they're on sale. I treat it like a bank account - worst-case I just sell off the excess. During the black market sale I had something like 30 million in consumables. Handy stuff.

 

(Oh, that might just be it - WG ""forcing"" you to get premium account time because you've wasted the credits buying T34B and crew books. No chance in hell they don' run a tight ship on the credit counter.)

There is a 2 month long event going on. I suspect it will be one soon enough.

I've noticed it as well have almost burned though 1000 of them (from half price) since the last half price sale on the Large Repair Kit and this last year the rate of use is more than double what it used to be, not so much the large Med Pack.

Not just consumables although I admit I will sorely miss that discount soon. What about modules?

When was the last discount for gun rammers and their ilk?

I think thats a waste of a Large Fire Extinguisher, Some tanks absolulty need it.   Some never seem to get caught on fire.

 

In my experience, T-44... might as well call it Zippo. It the most I've burned in.

i get so many consumables that i have to sell it from time to time. i always have 10 of all big packs (repair, med and fire) at the ready and at the end of the month i sell away 20-50 pieces of each

i dont use food so that gets sold as soon as i get it.

All food except Chinese used up, running low on everything now. Have 30 million ready to restock. Premium account has made the difference so far. Just can't bear the thought of paying full price!!

There was two very close together recently and I stocked up with 300 of each nations food and 500 large of both. TBH I play a varied bunch of tanks and I still have 100+ of each (but then I don't use the repair kits for tracks/turret etc unless it's suicide not too). I'm not starting to worry too much but expect another around the FL week (they usually are just before when most players have little money to splurge on them)

Food and large med and repair kits.  On the plus side I had so many auto fire extinguishers I sold 600 of them.  However, I've now run out of quite a few bits and pieces so some discounts would be nice.

There were 2, 50% sales in quick succession in the spring, (i guess that was a mistake on thier part) and none since, so i suppose they're now making us wait:(

 

when it's up again i'm going to spend 10mk out of the >95.mk saved up just on chocolate so as i don't run out again :coin::P

14:39 Added after 5 minute

My m41 90mm seems to be made of match wood, but i use food instead of auto firex, the expert firefighter directives seem to be quite good tho

 

Edit:many years ago (2012/13 iirc) when i had the Pershing, it seemed to catch fire twice every battle

Yeah, but nothing has been hinted at in regards to a consumeables sale. :sceptic:

 

In the same boat, been waiting for months now for a sale, and there hasn't been one. Ran out of small repair kits first, now recently I just ran out of small first aid kits...

Unlike past months. They have been very discreet on what comes. Even the monthly video update was more or less 5 min of "You will know more later". So don't waste your credits until you see something you want on a discount. As I suspect different things will come and go over the next 6/7 weeks.
