This is the stupidest "summer sale" I've ever seen.

They are selling lottery tickets called "summer sale tokens"...

No way, lottery is not sale, I remember when we had actual sales, mr WOWS CEO needs some grounding done, this what the marketing blokes are doing had completely gone out the window... :cap_horn:

 

I am not spending a dime in this charade, what I get for free I get and thats that... :etc_red_button:

My definitions of a "summer sale" is that everything is at least a third off.

My definition of a "sale" is that you can actually choose the item you are paying for. I want a paintjob for my Porsche. But I can only buy "a chance" to get a paintjob for an Audi, a VW, a Chrysler, a [insert other 20 brands] or... a Porsche. BS.

Doesnt matter how much off it is, its the principle, in my book sale means several articles in a store (or all of them) are offered at a discounted price compered to standard price, it does not involve a luck of any kind that goes past getting one before they are all gone...

It really doesn't surprise me anymore these days WG seem to make everything part of either a bundle or a lottery box. 

 

However for me I do not consider this a sale.

And you look like the definition of a Wargaming shill, with your 4 posts and unlikely gambling results.

To be fair, by making the sale completely pointless they're making it really easy to just save that cash for something else.

Yeah, my pet rats will get some new hammocks. :Smile_Default:

These gambling people are the reason we don't have nice things anymore. These dsys I don't blame WG anymore. It's these lootbox addicts that keep these nasty selling mechanics alive.

Same, hoped the "sale" included also a discount on elements you can choose, instead of usual loot boxes where you have the chance to win 5 camos

Yeah that's nonsense. Sale to me means I pick what I want, and don't need any luck beyond it being in the sale. Was hoping to pick up Atlanta at a discount, but I guess I'll just gather whatever free tokens I can be bothered with and see what I can get by the end of it. Wallet very much shut.

As I said this aint a sale, tommorow is my joining anniversary, should I get a coupon I might buy something I would buy normally with said coupon and if it gives some extra stuff fine even if its just a toss for random loot but buying into gambling lootbox with tokens aint a sale, a free lottery ticket you get with say 50€ spent on petrol station is not called a sale ffs

I think that what you chose to do is the best possible chance of winning something... :Smile_coin:

I disagree. I squarely blame WG. A sale would not make as much money as this casino crap. I can't wait for the EU to institute loot box regulations and hit all the gatcha companies - of which WG is not the worst, I guess, but still bad - with a giant stick.

Well you can buy two good T3 premiums that are no longer available in the shop. Together with 15 tokens you can collect, you will need to spend basically as much as per standard T3 premium so no discount at all. But as both Albert and Vampire are only available via Christmas boxes it is still nice offer. Everything else is just waste of money. I doubt we will ever see anything as those old 30% discount for T8 and 50% discount on anything bellow any more. So this is the best we can get now I guess.

I agree and I wish there were a rule that people need to declare their connection to WG. I often see "PSA" posts like "don't forget to buy Ship101, last chance with doubloons" and I wonder if people get... "incentives". I don't mind the posts themselves, but I do want transparency.
