Hey tankers! I have a question.. Does free exp ever go on sale? If so when? And if not, do you guys think it should go on sale sometimes for half price?

it has never gone on sale in the past, and I don't think it's very likely to happen in the future

I've never seen converting exp to free exp go on sale. Well, not to my memory. Maybe like 2 years ago they did an experiment but I'm quite certain that they have not done one of these in a LONG time.

Ok. That would be pretty cool if it did though, do you think?

No, but once a dev said it may be possible in the future to me  .... but no current plans.

Alrighty then. That kinda sucks.. They should do it sometimes IMO.

I think if it went on like.. 10%(?) sale for 2 days they would make good profit...

They will never put it on sale because it makes up the bulk of their income.

Business wise it's the perfect product to never go on sale.

Nobody needs it. Lots of new players don't even know it exists - it's not intuitive that it should in the world of grinding and tech trees. Free exp is potential, it just sits there, and as you learn more about the game it gnaws at your mind.

Your Rational Brain: "Ahh, WoT, love this game... only a weekend and I'll have that gun."
Your Other Brain: "But wait, for a couple of bucks I could have it now!"
YRB: "Huh? What are you on about? I'm having fun now, it's not a race it's a fighting game..."
YOB: "But just think how much MORE fun you'll have... if you just spend a couple of bucks... c'mon kid, a couple of bucks...
YRB: "Well........"
YOB & WG: Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!

I agree that's a good point. Even if it's only 10% off, don't you think that would encourage people that have a couple of their tanks elited to buy some gold to covert the xp. Or even if it doesn't go onsale for the gold, just make it 50 xp per one gold.. Something cool like that.

Dinner and a movie with wife costs $100.00. I think that upping the gun on a tank I play for HOURS / DAYS is a small price to pay for $5.00 or so.

We think alike; free exp is second only to premium sub in what I've spent. But bottom line buying it is not needed to play, even to play well. WG knows it, I know it....

But the cravings, the cravings....  :teethhappy:
