I remember there was a 30% off two years ago but nothing similar since

 

And also some rare 50% off for some really piss-poor tanks

 

But a 50% off normal tanks, has there been any?

 

Asking because T92 is 30% off right now, which makes my AMX 13 57 purchase seem stupid (more expensive lol).


Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

Unless its a marathon mission, I can't remember any either.

Usually its 15/30% off in my memory.

 

(Edit: for tier 8 and up I mean)

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

I take your point but long term I don't see how you wouldn't enjoy the 1357 much more, so arguably worth it.

Too bad WG made mission 279e completable with tier 8 or higher

 

That is the main reason for getting premium LTs. I still need a German and a French.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

If you bought the 13 57 off sale it's still good value.

 

The T92 is not worth the coin. The ELC is better for missions. Failing that, that EBR thing could be good for missions too though it is a mobile scout vs the ELC's capability to be a camo scout. 

 

There has been some strong sales on 8's in the past - even a 50% IIRC - but I sincerely doubt you'll see one before or after xmas (which is usually hidden inside loot boxes).

French LT missions are generally not hard to complete tho

 

My French 15.2 was completed with either an AMX 13 105 or the EBR 105 in one day. And it so happens to be also the first win after 5 battles in that day. So apparently winning is as hard as a personal mission on the Asia server nowadays.

 

So less need for a premium

 

Trying to complete LT missions for Alliances on the other hand... I had to use a T49 and that was painful. And UK did not have LT back then. Not that the current ones are good for scouting anyway.

The t49 is fine as a scout  due to its view range - tho i guess depending on mission. But then i dropped my rammer for vents and have a pretty good crew which will help.

Man I've been trying to get that damn 2 Patrol duties in 12 games one and even EVEN is failing me. Got 4.8k spotting last night zipping about the middle area of highway, 8 tanks assist damaged and it was still not good enough for a Patrol medal. I'm not sure if all the spotting damage to a particular tank has to be done while your the only one spotting it, or if its just a portion of any spotting damage. :sceptic:

Can't remember a 50% off tier 8 prems, unless it's from one of those "coupons" that WG gives out randomly.

 

Best I can think of is 75% off a Matilda IV

STA-2 had a 50% off. It is that bad.

IIRC, they have to be tanks you initially spotted.
