So I got a coupon. I'm like good I wanted to buy some dubloons and it is a nice option. Then I see this. Ok then, I'll buy dubloons as that's not gold. But noo. Then I'm like then let's buy a damn overpriced stupid space camo. Nope, special offer. Great.

You can buy anything except everything.

What an honour WG. Thank you. Thank you. So nice. I'll definitely spend my money in the shop. Buying a skin for the price of 3 games on a market starting with S.

Still leaves premium time or permanently premium ships you might have and are interested in. But yeah, that's not an awfully large selection.

 

Funny thing is apparently such coupons are flying from the shelf being given away at people ingame (supposedly for getting top XP), but I haven't gotten one (and yeah, I get top XP every once in a while ...).

Not that I'd use it on anything so I don't mind, just am mildy amused by it.

The solution is very simple: Buy a premium ships you already own. You will get the full doubloon price as compensation (for example buying the Tirpitz would get you 12,500 doubloons). But you only paid 70% for the ship. In the end you got the doubloons 30% off. You are welcome!

I've gotten one of those coupons, it was either for doing a lot of damage or getting a lot of xp. Don't remember and I never used it. The prices in the store are so inflated that I buy as little as I can on general principle. Some gold from time to time. Can't get lower prices on gold anyways, so... meh!

 

I also get turned off from being a customer by WG's way of treating consumers. It's pretty obvious that they're trying to confuse people into spending more money than they should. For example, how many people do you think actually buys premium consumables with gold? Only those who don't understand that they can click the little arrow so you can pay with credits, probably.

It's not stupidity, it's their avarice and belief of superiority. The way they claim BS reasons for inflating prices or removing offers.

That coupon is a perfect example of it. There are more items you can't use it for, than things you can.

Hmmm I only get the 10% coupons and often when I just used 30+€ in the shop. Needless to say that I never use them, might be the reason I get them in the first place.

Exactly what  I was planning on doing for my next 30% off coupon.

Hopefully the one I'll get for my account existing for 7 years on WoT is a universal code instead of just a WoT-specific one, since I'd dearly love to get my hands on the Musashi.

Used it recently on WoT to get gold to use in WoWP btw; should get me two premium planes there for a total of 50% combined discount. :Smile_trollface:

I've also gotten a 30% coupon this time.

Last time I gotten a 20% coupon but I ended up not spending it on anything as I found 20% a bit lackluster and at that time I had very recently already spend money during christmas.

This time the only ships I would want are Scharnhorst and that tier 5 Italian BB, but both those are not in the premium shop.

I don't have any premiums that are in the shop right now.

I might opt for the premium time though.

Already had two of those coupons (one was 10% and the other one 20%). Both expired unused.

 

GG WarGaming, your sales department is even worse than your developers and balancers. Which has its merit.

I bought Premium Time with 30% coupon but as an user above suggested if you need doubloons buy the premium ship you own and you will be rewarded with full price in doubloons.

 

I bet some people would complain even if they would receive something for free.

You seem to have to carry ultrahard,

I got one for my mainaccount for a carry of unbelievable noobs on PTS (however that worked) with -20%. That one expired though as I didn't care.

 

I got another -20% after a spectacular Solo Warrior match (again unbelievable noobs with heavy lifting involved) on live and this time WG got me with that honeysweet text they wrote.

Somtehing like "congratz you won that game and your team couldn't have done it without you. Here have some coupon".

After some days I went and bought Tirpitz (again) and have some Dubloons now to wait for another discount ingame.

Maybe I get De Grasse or Duca or both dunno. :cap_book::cap_money:

A discount is far from the same thing as receiving something for free, especially when the product is overpriced ones and zeroes.

Hi all,

 

I used my similar discount coupon (from few weeks ago) for buying "Premium Time"... IMHO the best value for money if you can afford it...

True, but not that important if you still have 200+ days of premiumtime still ticking down that I bought from my now almost empty stash of WoT gold.

Got one Too. Would have used  it for an Alabama, but since she is buddled up at the moment and not available otherwise except for  doublons ingame and also no USN  Cruiser is available in store I'm going to let it rot.

Just checked out that Boise and Nouve ship bundle. When I saw the price I started laughing so hard I almost peed myself.

4 days of work. 4 fking whole days. For a second I thought: Damn, why not? Then I decided from that money I'll go to watch a movie, eat at a nice restaurant, buy my transport ticket for a month, go out drinking one night, buy 3 cool books, buy a good game AND I would STILL have money left!
