Hello, I have saved up a lot of credits because I like to buy consumables at the discounted price,today after logon I am shocked to see that the half price sale has gone.So I will no longer buy food. Only buying the necessary basic repair and med kits plus auto fire extinguisher. This is a further step in the P2W direction  this game is going.

I noticed this as well, but it's not strange. Players get a HUGE amount of credits for simple missions, marathons, Personal Missions etc, compared to the past, so this will balance things out, though I don't like the change.

Yes, when I thought about it a bit more I also came to that conclusion,it was just a early morning rant,it's a pity WG  aren't  as clever at balancing the game as they are with credits :rolleyes:

It probably won't be permanent. WoT has had reductions of less than 50% (either 30% or 25%) off equipment before now, but it's at the regular 50% reduction again today.

Oh boy. We have a [edited] genius here, don't we!


 

THEY HAVE OFFERED EQUIPMENT AT A LOWER DISCOUNT RATE BEFORE NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY THAT THEY (for some reason) OFFER CONSUMABLES AT A LOWER DISCOUNT OF ONLY 25%. NEXT TIME IT WILL PROBABLY BE BACK AT THE REGULAR 50% OFF.


 

SO STOP GETTING YOUR PANTIES IN A TWIST.


 

:facepalm:

And you are apparently illiterate. At no point does he say that food has been at a 25% discount. 

If you actually read what he wrote, rather than, hilariously, accusing him of being a shill, you would see that he clearly stated that he was referring to EQUIPMENT.

You all just use too much food. When the demand is high the prices go up.

The Tread is not about Equipment,it's about consumables.And he does say that food is at 25% discount today, ,and that's what this discussion is all about.It's not me who is illiterate. Go lie down in a darkened room with the curtains closed and give your brain a rest.

Well As I use them anyway 25% off is still a discount! As I've run out brought the usual 1500 large repair kits and top up the large Med packs.. 

  Who know when another sale is going to be on and if it will go back to 50% might not be till Christmass or never :sceptic: it could be 25% off ..

YOU, OP, have got your knickers in a knot complaining about the consumables discount being only 25% today instead of the regular 50% off.

 

You have spat your dummy and complained that it is P2W.

 

I have pointed out that the usual discount on other items, i.e. Equipment, has been reduced from 50% to either 25 or 30% on at least one previous occasion but is back to the more usual 50% at the moment.

 

The implication being that this current reduction of 25% on consumables is not necessarily permanent and may well be 50% reduction the next time it is offered.

 

I would also note that when WG usually discounts ALL tier VIII to X vehicles it is usually only 15% and it is currently 20%. The implication is that discount amounts are not set in stone.

 

And you are going to look like a complete tool when Consumables are 50% off next time for throwing your toys out of the pram for no reason.

You accused him of lying for claiming that food has been discounted to 25% in the past, which he did not.

 

You are not only illiterate but also lying in order to shift attention away from the fact that you made a mistake but are not mature enough to acknowledge it.

Meh WG!

 

Only spent on small consumables because of only 25% discount.

 

Will wait for 50% before buying big consumables and food...

(PowJay) and (Only Slightly Bent) have you actually read the whole thread? I don't think you have as both of you are talking the same s**t

Try reading from my first post so at least you may be able to contribute something useful,but I very much doubt it.
