In the recent patch they made it so you can now buy Directives for credits, but we can't sell them? Why?

 

I could understand it back when we could only buy them for bonds, but now they cost credits just like premium and non-premium consumables, why can't we sell them?

We get plenty of them for free, could it break the "credits economy"? I wouldn't go as far as to say it would since; we also get small 'first-aid kits' and 'repair kits' consumables for free, and those can be sold for credits.

 

I think we should be able to sell the Directives for credits just like we can sell other 'one time' consumables.

They don't want to give a freebie to those sitting on top of hundreds of directives earned in the various events and daily boxes.

But they give them plenty of free large and small consumables, and if you ration your large consumables you can easily earn hundreds of thousand credits in one go.

It really shows what an afterthought Directives for credits was as a decision.

I think a combination of:

 - the amount they gave away to try and encourage use of directives

 - the ridiculously high price tag (20K silver - so sell at 10K a pop)

 - WG’s ‘war on silver’

 

The above is I believe why they are not allowed to be sold. I wish they could be sold, I have thousands of them gathering dust, and would convert to silver in a heartbeat!

is a good strategy actually, you sell expensive and you refuse to buy back even at half the price

I agree.

 

Just a question, can you still buy them with bonds? I really dont want to use 20k credits for fire-skill directive... I use that pretty much in all my tanks and it was okey with 2 bonds each since I only play high tiers where I earn them.. now with this im using 80k credits per match (repair, first aid, food, directive). Of course I buy them with discount but maaaaan it will get expensive after I run out pre-bought things..

no. I spent 10k bonds on the 3 types I use (FF, rammer and SS) the last day possible and I wish I had spent more

Goddarnit, I wasn't that clever!

I seriously thought that  after the patch you could choose what you use to buy them :(

Yes!! Even if its 100silver per directive. There are some I will never use!

Or maybe have a directives market where the good ones (vent, rammer and 6th sense) are worth more. And you can trade for them at 3:1 ratio.

yup, I have a stack of these that I only use on 1 tank ,so I'd welcome the opportunity to get shot of them!

I personally prefer to buy up large numbers of big and small repair kits, medkits and fire extinguishers, so food gets sold whenever I win some, wish I could do the same with directives :)

I mainly play randoms - won’t piss them away on those unless it’s the 6th sense one for a commander that has none. Would keep them either for more important games (ranked/clan/whatever), or just wait it out until a change in selling policy.

I did create a topic about the proposed cost and buying them but, for some reason, when I got the answer as too how much they cost on the TS I asked for the topic to be deleted :(

It really shows what an afterthought Directives for credits was as a decision.

 

The afterthought starts when they decided the cost (in bonds ) for the firefighting directive. It shows they had no idea it would end up being the most useful, and now they 'fixed' their mistake.
