Does anybody know why the discount coupons you get with Tankrewards are only applicable to a very limited amount of tanks in the premium shop? Haven't seen an interesting tank with discount in months. Apart from #walletclosed because of equipment 2.0 the useability for me of these coupons is literally zero.

How so? Most premiums will be better with 2.0. Inc the Progetto. Because most will have the rammer as a hidden equipment not taking up slots. So technically some will have 4 slots vs how it is now. Thus more DPM vs now.  

 

But, you get those coupons once a month, thus their short lifespan, and limited availability. So when you finally see something you want, you might still have one, vs having 50 of them stacked for something you won't ever buy.

Discount coupons are just there to play with your mind, make you think you're getting a good deal and part with you money.

Discounts, to make you believe you made a good deal while having money spend you otherwise would have kept.

You always "loose" money, no matter how much they "allow" you to save.

#walletclosed because WG shoves something down my throat that is a clear money grab due to the limited amount of demount kits....i am not going to spent any real money on demounting equipment over this.

I think i know the answer, Those coupons seem to be valid on packages only, not on an single tank + garage slot + 100% crew. Just caught my eye.

What do you mean? You can get the reward any time, no matter when you reach the points. The coupon is only valid for some days but you can decide when the counter starts...

 

Also for someone with wallet closed you have a suspiciously high interest in discounts for premium stuff :trollface:

Fun fact for you: if you lined up all the almost useless discount coupons received but not used by WOT players, that line would reach from the Earth to the Moon.

They could have prevented toilet paper shortage by just sending you printed discount coupons.

Missed opportunity.

How is equipment 2.0 a money grab? They'll demount everything for free when the change is implemented.

Known issue. I'm confident WeeGee is hard at work to find a fix even as we speak. :trollface:

NOT! As you would say.

The actual plan, not your deliberate misinformation, is as follows:

 

"

If all these changes hit the live servers, your equipment on all tanks will be converted to fit the new system in accordance with the following rules:

  • Old equipment will be replaced by new equipment, taking into account the specifics of the reworked system. For example, the Medium-Caliber Gun Rammers for tanks and SPGs will become Gun Rammer Class 2, so you can mount it on the Tier V–VII vehicles and Tier VIII–X tanks with which it was previously compatible. The Large-Caliber Gun Rammers for tanks and SPGs will become Gun Rammer Class 1 and be suitable for Tier VIII–X tanks.
  • If any equipment has already been mounted on a vehicle, then the tier of this specific tank will not be considered. For example, a Tier II vehicle with Coated Optics costing 500,000 credits, when all changes take effect, will have Coated Optics Class 1, which is designed for Tier VIII–X tanks. But this equipment will remain on the Tier II tank, and you can freely enter battle with it. If you demount this equipment, you'll be able to mount it on any vehicle that uses this specific class of equipment. However, you won’t be able to mount it on other vehicles that use a different class of this specific equipment.
  • If any equipment was mounted on a tank for which it can no longer be used in the new system (for example, due to a different vehicle type), it will be automatically moved to the Depot and converted.
  • Moving equipment from one slot to another on the same vehicle isn't considered demounting and therefore doesn't require spending gold, bonds, or Demount Kits.
  • All improved equipment mounted on your vehicles will be automatically removed to the Depot.
  • In some cases, the equipment cost will increase. On the one hand, we want to take into account the interests of players who purchase new equipment. On the other hand, we also take into account the interests of commanders who already have this equipment and may want to sell it. So the new price will remain quite affordable for the widest range of commanders.
  • For vehicles that will have fewer equipment slots in the new system, on the Sandbox server, all equipment from non-existent slots will be removed to the Depot.
  • After the feature is released, each player will receive several free Demount Kits. You'll also be able to earn more Demount Kits by completing special daily missions for a limited time."
