For as many weeks as I can remember, there has been no more weekend specials for the NA server. 

 

No 50% discounts on equipment, 

 

No 50% discount on crew training

 

No 50% discount on crew skill reset

 

No 50% discount on consumables.. 

 

What gives?

I noticed that too.  Disappointing.

It seems to me WG is assuming Tankrewards.com can take over the discount system by giving the player base a limited amount of equipment, consumables and personal reserves for 'free'. That way we cannot 'abuse' the discounts and buy greater amounts of stuff at sale price. Just another form of a Gold, credit and $ squeeze on their player base.

Europe for example still gets occasional weekend sales (but has no Tankrewards.com access). Last weekend they sold equipment, consumables, crew retraining (or skill reset, I'm not sure) and garage slots at 50%! When have we seen that combo the last time?

I remember waiting for specials to re-train my crew, which was 4-8 tanks a month. 

 

Once I was done with tier 8, I stooped using gold.  Just credit and put my crew in a lower tier premium and bun a skill training booster.  Good as gold in an hour.

I don't really care anymore about sales.

The game in the current state with a broken contact list, who needs friends (most people want to socialize on this game) and not to forget the rubber band lag on east.

But as it seems wargaming NA is to busy or just simply don't care to address some of the issues that pester the game!

I don't mind spending money on this game because I like the game, but my wallet closed about two month ago and want open until I see some improvement.

I have not spent my gold at all because of the lack of specials.

 

I always wait for sales, spend away and get a little more...

 

Must be making enough coin with crappy bundles and OP prems.

I have to say that in the past few weeks just playing I have racked up 99+ boosters and a ton of consumables.

Maybe they are 'taking turns' with the giveaways?

Did you just miss the consumable discount?

 

You are correct in that the weekend discounts, as we have know them, have slowed down a bit. I personally have several higher tier tanks that I simply won't move a crew into until their is a discount. I'll play that waiting game WG. 

 

But, recognize that WG is basically giving away a tier 6 premium (T-34-85M Marathon) for completing very doable (so far) missions. That's a $19 plus if you used real money, and T-34-85M is a very decent tank.

 

Add the daily missions and I think WG is being very generous, but just not in the way we're use to.

I can feed the pigs with boosters. I got 351 and rather would have some specials! Smile_sceptic.gif

We have not had a paint sale since the new tier 10 lights have come out.

I have nearly a dozen tanks that need permanent paint.

I wonder if the hundreds of "Weekend Specials bring out the worst players" threads have anything to do with it?

Consumables were on sale a few weeks ago, but no cammo or crew discounts in ages. Sucks like a ***** in a ******

This is my thought too.  Recently we DID get a 50% sale on consumables, because I bought a crap ton of repair kits for 10k silver.  

Not too worried, these specials run in cycles.  It'll come back around shortly, I'm sure.

Abuse discounts??...lol..thats like saying dont go shopping during sales,when sales are meant to get you out shopping.Only thing you got right is WG squeeze.And tank rewards is just to try to bribe the player base to stay when they fail so much in other areas.

Because Maus is so OP and so big, WG will charge you double for the camo paint needed to cover the vehicle. Then they will release digital gremlins to paint grafetti on it.

I have an obscene amount of tanks that need crew resets, paint, etc, but I have decided not to send WG any more money. They screwed me over an infraction and they have made the game crappier. Add to the fact that they are making the game more expensive to play and I see no reason to give them any money. When I run out of tanks to grind, I'll  either go the silver route or start a new tank line.
