What do we need the most? Equipment discounts.

What do you put on sale? Every-flippin'-thing else.


Another weekend goes by and the majority of my garage collects dust 'cause there's no way I'll put undiscounted equip on any tank. thx a lot



Edit: 14 tanks on my to-buy list, but what's the point in that if I can't play them?

No equipment discount? Like really? You expect golden shower out of real currency but I will give you some in liquid form.


edit: grammar nazi correction

The discount on consumables is handy. Haven't had one in a while.


The rest is disappointing. The LIS Challenge is just too much of a grind at lower tiers.

Lol! Well played WG! Well played! 


And agreed, last year had equipment discount, so why not this year?!? Guess I will continue to play my 5-6 tanks I have fully equipped (with 'old' equipment) until then...

Discounts on consumables and tech tree tanks are nice. But won't play my new tanks until we have an equipment discount.

precisely this. i really don't know what your problem is WG, and just don't send in this Eek saying something about currency balance as in game trading in only player vs. system/WG, not player vs. player, where currency balance COULD BE a factor to consider.


you are pulling the game down to the abyss, well done.

I literally was waiting this day to get 50% discount on equipment so I could finally try these new equipments out but it seems like I have to wait  another few months or so which is kinda dissapointing. I have even saved up all my credits for it and combined some of my tanks with the specific equipments in the comparison list as I want so I wont forget which equipments to buy when its on sale but oh well :sceptic: . What hurts is that literally everything else is on discount besides equipment. Im guessing WG knew we are all waiting for equipment sale and they deliberately left the equipments out. I was so hyped about the equipment sale but now im just dissapointed :facepalm:

Gamescom missions are nice, especially the 2nd mission for national German blueprint fragments. Thanks! Free camo is nice as well. Great stuff to help the grind for my German heavy line Pz VII.


Regarding CS-52, I am disappointed not to see the new polish mechanic that was introduced with the line. Imo, this tank is nothing special except for its power to weight ratio and a nice turret.

Oh, WG, WG...:ohmy:
I see... everything was going too good - trade-in, marathon, calm expectation for EQ discounts...
I mean, discounts you’re offering are nice and welcome, but why without equipment? Especially after 2.0?  Is it really necessary to fail like this?
Just to show boss doesn’t care what clients ask/want/need?  Only this reason makes sense for me then... cuz everybody knows equipment discounts was THE MOST expected and valuable... why don’t you skip that 50% customization or garage slots or even x5 and 1x40 free XP?
I still think it’s a prank... if not - that’s a shame:( 10 years WoT ~ 4 months no equipment discount...
Anyhow, thanks for tech tree tanks and consumables discounts, those are nice ones. Just advice next ToTT tanks before discounts end to know which tanks we can get with 30% off.

I remember someone saying to "wait for August 28 for equipment discount" a while ago but I being sceptical replied with "I wouldn't be so sure about that as it's WG after all".

I often hate being right.

It's funny how WG refuses to give discount on equipment. First they completely screw us over with 0 compensation (yes, I have equipment that are basically useless on some tanks due to introduction of some better ones for particular tanks), now

they refuse to give us discounts. It's pathetic beyond measure

Looks like I'll have to skip the marathon just because almost all of my tanks are just waiting for equipment sale with some important equipment missing. I don't want to waste millions of silver buying dozens of binos and new equipment at full price just to have nice set of tanks usable for marathon. I was also trying to save all my gold from old missions to get some nice tank, but looks like I'll now lose that to demount all the old equipment no longer optimal. Hopefully there's some missions to get gold as 100% free-to-play player or at least plenty of demount kits because I still have way less than one demount kit per tank even after buying all available demount kits. Unfortunately, I wasn't at home before equipment update and thus failed to demount all my binos, camo nets and repair kits, so that's quite a big problem also unless too high class binos and other equipment get demounted for free from lower-tier tanks soon. Maybe I'll just have to skip this marathon and Gamescom special and just do something else until next equipment sale because watching all those empty equipment slots in my garage is just too annoying.

Nah enough is enough.Unninstalled.Done.Finito.
It's been nice while it lasted but recently greedines is just to much.
No equipment discout which is most anticipated one and no polish discount which is also most anticipated alongside equipment discount.
This is just pathetic and your greed doesn't have limits.There's way to many free to play titles that offer good and enjoyable content for me to bother with this overlyexpensive p2w game.
The more and more time has passed we were required to have as many stuff as possible.1st it was only prem account now we need to constantly buy battle passes and all the kind of stuff...I found myself paying way to much for this game and on top of it the fact that they are cheaping on the worst possible stuff is remarkable.
Premium tanks are OP and ruining game.
Arty is a problem for way to many years.No matter what u do it will always be toxic.
OP tier Xs.
Worst of all premium ammo that never got reworked.Made heavy tanks like maus unplayable.Other ones too.
Worst possible relationship with customers.
2.0 Equipment was nicely done but poorly executed.We lost a lot of hard earned credits on it and also gold.It would take me 1 year to get all the tanks into normal if i kept playing.
Whole 10 year anniversary was failure. ( I don't expect free premium tank but ffs some credit booster or gold would be nice wouldn't it?)

Bare in mind this is coming from a player with 300 days of premium left.I can't even bother to w8 for it to expire.
Had long time hopes for this game to be fixed but it's just getting worse and worse.

This my last comment ever here.Farewell and gl with 20 year anniversary...Or even 11 year anniversary at this tempo.

Gl everyone who still plays and have fun.I am kinda jelaous :)
