question: if you have the fcm pak in garage and you complete the mission, do you get the full 850 gold value or just 425 - as the tank is 50% off at the same time? Can anyone clarify this.

Yeah, what the hell? Their New Policy is no discounts on tier viii +? Why? Fewer players at top tiers? Why?

Presumably WOT are losing buckets of money from people waiting for discounts before they buy their higher tier tank (ignoring the fact that players expend more credits and gold to play >vii than <viii...)

Can some decision maker at WOT please explain this?

The value of the tank when you receive the tank.

It is absolutely astounding, that no matter how many times events like this happen, people always asked "omg du we gt d goldz if we haev tha tank already"

 

The answer has been, and always will be the same. If you have the tank, you are compensated in some form.

Good sign. Shows that there are new players joining the server. Be it new account or bought account.

Hello

 

It gets a bit more complicated in future. In April we will be using TLV's for rewards fairly heavily.

And then if players already have the tank, they wont get compensated for getting it again in TLV format.

 

As per this post.

They use to have 30% off then 15% now nothing over tier 7. I sold my tier 9s in Japan and German td last year and refuse to buy tier 10 until they bring back the 30% as the 15% was not good enough for tier 10 discount of over 6 mil creds that you buy knowing its a huge money eater more than the other tiers so why bother buying them especially if you already have a few. How many do you need? Even with those lockouts in cws they weren't severe enough to worry about losing more than 2 tanks locked in a game because then soon it would release them. If they locked them out longer then maybe there would be an incentive to buy them for that purpose if you like that sort of thing.

Not every year is a major anniversary, right? (iirc March of Nations was to celebrate 30 years of WG or something)

 

It's like having a bountiful harvest 1 year and then expecting every year to be the same.

The one you were referring to is August and yeah it was the milestone 15th anniversary last 2013, then 16th 2014
April is the servers 3rd anniversary for WOT.

 

Both are fairly large, but the one in August often comes with some extra's with it being a global event, so it can include some extra pretties like tank development / gamer mode development / etc

His point was that there have (almost?) always have been discounts for Tier 8 - 10 tanks - usually 15%. Why don't you address that point?

"It's like having a bountiful harvest 1 year and then expecting every year to be the same." - Except that it's not like a harvest at all. Harvest quality and quantity are  subject to the vagaries of a chaotic and unfeeling universe. WOT discounts are... oh hang on, maybe you're right.

 

Is Tanitha hinting at discounts in April (but not April 1 right?!).
