I know the tank is meh and it might be a very interesting way of telling your customers not to buy it, but why is the VK 168.01 not discounted while there is an ongoing special with 15% discounts on tier VIII premium tanks?

 

The tech tree price shows 11.5k and no %discount.

Interesting question. Asked the same when saw the ELC Even 90 not discounted..... Bought in anyway, but still cant understand, why arent those tanks discounted.

Remember  the good old days,   when ud get 30- 50% off every tank, (tree or premium...) 

 

Bet they'd sell a lot more if they weren't so stingy and boring as Scrooge these days.

 

some price reduction at top tier must be a real snub to new players and recruits ... pity

Only logical conclusion: it will be in the calendar in the next few days.

You made it sound like 50% on tier 8 premiums was every event. It's been done sure. But it was never a common price. It's rarely done. As in all the years I've been here, I can count on one hand how often I've seen a tier 8 prem with more than 20% vs the normal 15%. 50% on mid-tiers? Sure. But high tiers? Hardly. We got one tier X for 40% last Xmas. One, not all of them.

I'd have bought the Even 90 as I have gold from lootboxes.

 

But it seems WG can't even do that right. 

 

Especially as the event says 15% off T8 Premium tanks, doesn't mention any exceptions on the news page.

 

Although wait long enough and it'll be discounted, just play the long game...

They we’re added to the in game shop few days ago, logically I’d assume WG forgot to add them to the discounted list

They added those tanks to the techtree literally like a few days ago, of course they're not going to be discounted.

It's not the only conclusion, but I hope you are correct. If I understand correctly there are a couple more offers on the advent calendar, until the 24th, so there is time.

Keyword: logical, as in, if it was done on purpose.

 

WG [edited]-ups are the norm, but not logical.

They are now discounted, guess it was a mistake on WG's end, of course I didn't have enough gold for the 168.01 at full price so I bought the Even 90...also at full price...and now they are both discounted.

 

I guess I'm s**t outta luck.

 

I'm also hoping it actually was a mistake and not someone intentionally waiting until after a bunch of people bought the tanks at full price to actually apply the discount.
