Well not entirely. We will just get our credits back....

From EU forum post by their community manager.

Quote

There are players who are spending a lot of credits and then sell.
I inform you that the price you pay to sell ammunition in 8.4 will be 85 credits.

Greetings

Double confirmed post.

26 pages long, 225 people currently viewing topic....  You're all excited about what tomorrow may bring.... It will give you one of 2 things.
A - A stockpile of shells.
B - Your money back.
For shells purchased in 8.3, they sell back for the same value in 8.4,
for shells purchased in 8.4, they sell back for their increased value in 8.4
Buying a ton of shells now does nothing for you except fill your depot with lots of HE shells for the 20 pounder.  Sorry folks, the Developers were on to this. The spike in purchases especially today was kinda huge.

Be aware that so far two community managers confirmed this for the EU server. NA server could be in too.

EU CM confirmed the changes for NA server too. Post

The shell value is the same for NA as it is EU.


LE:Apparently RU server got to profit from selling the shells at 130cr!

There is no such thing as russian bias lol!

Folks,
We understand the concern, but unfortunately we cannot make a statement on what might happen to those that were able to take advantage of this, as it is against our policy to publicly discuss account sanctions.


No one noticed anything strange going down on RU server

View PostGeneralDirection, on Mar 05 2013 - 23:08, said:

You're forgetting the RU cluster got this update on February 28th, with the full notes only being available for a few hours before. The major issue only appeared on the EU and NA clusters.
I'm sorry you're upset by this, but we're not going to allow an additional 2.5 billion credits to enter the game economy because of this.

Wats the deal WG?

View PostGeneralDirection, on Mar 05 2013 - 23:23, said:

The issue is that the game is balanced in a way that progression takes a certain amount of time. There is a reason we do not discount tier X vehicles, and that is it. In a lot of cases -- believe me we've spent the past few days reviewing them -- this would have resulted in the ability to get a tier X vehicle completely free just by clicking a few buttons over the course of a minute at most. That's fairly game breaking.

Stats went crazyonly for NA EU  

View PostGeneralDirection, on Mar 05 2013 - 23:32, said:

To put it in better perspective, the credits spent on these shells increased by 35,459% when comparing yesterday -- when the issue was most discussed -- to the day before the update notes were available. That's something we can't sweep under the rug.

How many shells stockpiled?

View PostGeneralDirection, on Mar 05 2013 - 23:54, said:

Okay, let's remove the potential manipulation then. 1 thousand shells were purchased on February 27th. 56 million shells were purchased yesterday alone.

Oh but yet the Russian server got to sell the shells back at a higher price?

What a crock of beep.

I knew it, they changed it to zero profit, zero loss.

Keep it on the down low next time...

This is BS... this is something they need to anticipate, not screw over everyone who already planned for this.

Well, that's too bad if true. Was hoping to have enough money to buy my T-62a this weekend, but oh well! If they make the sell price 85c, at least they're being generous. They could just make all our gambling fail and let us sell for 43c.

This assumes WG changed something after the Russian release.  It would have meant the Russian players got to make credits off these HE shells.  I didn't see anything to confirm this.  From what I've read in the EU forum, the re-sell price was already coded that way by the developers.  Not sure if someone can confirm with access to RU servers.

I kept trying to warn people about this.  You get nothing for free in life. Get-rich-quick schemes are shams and WG isn't in the business of giving out free credits.  At least those who spent millions on this won't have to take a loss.

So, we just wait until the sell price goes to 130 credits again. They can't keep the sell price at 85 forever when the purchase price is 260.

Well, you know, apart from all those times we got free tanks, slots and 100% crews when things got shuffled around - but who's keeping track?

Amen bro.

Again so russians got time to sell their mk3 stockpile to 130cr or this change applies for them too? or only NA and EU got trolled?

I am doing everything in my ability to stay with this game but WG is doing everything in theirs to drive me away.

EDIT: After all, we are just 35K in number, WG can well do without us, no problem, no sir. I dare them to try the same tactic on the Russian server.

I remember someone confirmed the 260 buy and 130 sell price on one of the topics here. And, to quote Silentstalker on the EU forums:

Wasn't a problem for Russian server apparently...
Oh wait. I forgot. Russian game.
I had this moment of goodwill today when I thought Wargaming isn't bad and that I'll be a good boy from now on.
........aaaaaaaaaaaaaand it's gone.

Just hang onto your investments(?) until 8.5 releases.  :Smile_teethhappy:

























Quick, make the call to your broker to buy every Luchs on the lot and every turret you can get your grubby hands on.

Yeah, they should have just rolled with the mistake. Now when people buy the new HE at 260 and want to sell it, they'll make less than half.

Really? Your breaking even at least.  WG just prevented themselves from being screwed by people exploiting this.

Instead of blaming WG for this next time blame the 592 people who decided making threads about this was a good idea

Except for all the other times get-rich-quick schemes worked and WG gave out free credits.
