I have either been using them out of control or simply forgot to buy them last time they were on sale. I just noticed that my small repair kits dropped below the 100 mark down from like 4k. Any predictions on when WG might offer them half price again?

I think the last one was July 4th so I'm guessing Thanksgiving or Xmas maybe?

And here I thought I used them a lot.   :ohmy:

Well, if you play a lot, and get hit a lot, you repair a lot. Used to be one a game, now it may be five or more a game.

I don't think you get charged more than once per game.

Yeah, I am down to 108 repair kits from the 1000 I bought when they were on sale.

It looks like my aggressive style (usually the idiot in the lead, first to lose a track) really eats up the repair modules.   I'm guessing my repair module count is greater by 2X than the other two combined.   

 

I've still got 1st Aid and Fire bottles in the depot, but ran out of Repair kits a couple of weeks ago.   It'd be nice if there was an accounting UI in the game.   Of course, we would then realize what it costs to play this game and some would then die of heart attacks.  :ohmy:

Yeah, I know it's weird, the game doesn't keep an accurate count. It just seems like I'm using them up faster than I used to.

That's because of the ridiculous arty splash.

You only get charged once per game no matter how many times you use it, well at least as long as you use it once.  Don't use it no charge.

They're 1-per-match, if used, not each time they're used.

This reminds me --- I bought a slew (something like 600) manual extinguishers years ago. And now I never use them because I have auto extinguishers on all of my relevant tanks. So before consumables go on sale I need to sell my manuals back for half price (if you sell during a sale, you only get half of the sale price back, so a quarter of their non-sale price). In theory I should have a net zero gain/loss, since I bought them half price and will now sell them for half price. And then I'll be buying more auto extinguishers, as well as a ton of food for those tanks in which I run food routinely (not many). Same with small repair and first aid kits.

That is why there is nothing wrong with dumping all credits into consumables or equipment when they are half off. If you use those things, cool. If you find that you don't need them you can always just sell them back and get your money back. In that way, it is like putting money into a bank account.
