Today I saw this in the news:

I was quite happy because I thought "finally I can buy some permanent cammos for some of my ships" and I checked into the game how much it would cost for some of my ships (tier 7 and 8)

But noo... permanent cammo doesn't has any discount. WTF?? In the news said "40% discount on camouflage" period!! There is no other text saying "only for..." or whatever. Even more, at the top says " with great discounts on credits and doublons!"

 

Just... WTF it's going on lately with bundles, discounts, offerts and all that?

The discount is not on permanent camouflage, which was quite obvious.

In the past they mentioned both types of camos when both were discounted.

if you really expected any different, you might want to check your connection to reality...

Especially as then the overpriced spacecamos would be affected too.

Just imagine the outcry of those people which bought the spacecamos full price. :cap_haloween:

That already happened to me a couple of times, thats why I almost never buy anything at normal price.

What is it with the recent wave of WG "offers" not being accurately described and causing some confusion!! ...geez :Smile_child::Smile_coin:

I think the offers are perfectly clear, people just don't understand them on their own fault.

Keyword, Mission.

But I do agree that maybe WG needs to implement a ELI5 way to communicate with their playerbase.

If the offers were "perfectly clear" then no-one would be having these issues would they?

 

So, looking at the actual words WG used in their adverts -

 

WG say "Here's 30% off EVERYTHING" but then say "excluding the following very long list" - So it's not "30% off EVERYTHING" then is it, it's "30% of SELECTED ITEMS IN THE SHOP" - an accurate description would prevent this problem.

 

WG say "Here's 40% off CAMOUFLAGES" but then don't discount all "CAMOUFLAGES" only some - So it's not "40% off CAMOUFLAGES" then is it, it's "40% of SOME CAMOUFLAGES" - an accurate description would prevent this problem.

As a native English speaker I realise that, at times, the descriptions given on various parts of the WG EU site may not always be the most accurate as they are rarely written by other native English speakers. However in the examples above the descriptions "as written" on the website (not as what people guess was meant) are written poorly, which has led to the problems described by others i.e. if you say "Everything" that word means "Everything" and that word is very clearly defined in the English Language. If you are not offering "Everything" then you can't use that word without causing some confusion, especially to those who may not be native speakers which, considering it is a EU site, maybe large numbers of people.

I do not remember any complaints from the last time the camos were on discount.
