HUH, WHEN???

 

EU gets them every once in a while. EU gets everything basically on 50 days basis and it just keeps on coming and rotating, while we on NA get ratsass!!!

 

Honestly I can't remember when was the last time we had discounts on exterior elements... I think it was like 6 months ago... ffs

I made a lapsus, was meant to type 6 months ago, so I wasn't off by that much. It's still a long time...

Camo sales are the rarest of things (I've never seen a discount on switching crew roles, but I've heard they happened at some point in the past).  I would not expect a camo sale anytime soon, if ever again.

 

FYI - No kidding, this is a Russian company that works on getting the most spend out of Americans that they can.  It is why we have the fewest discounts and the most "sales" than all the other regions.  In theory, we have the most $ per player available.

with the number of extra, movable styles I have, the price of camo doesn't even occur to me as having a need for a discount these days.

And we have the lowest player count among all available servers... So they are doing the excessive milking while they can. [Except for SEA, not counting that sh**hole lol]

Yeah, but I have 20 more tanks I want to put camo on. All my premiums (tier II - tier X), have camo, all my regular tanks have camo and now I only need to equip those regular remaining 20 tier X's.

It's something I want. Don't want rental stuff or to move camos back and forth. 

 

Btw, does anyone know if Clan Urban Style gets removed when you leave the clan? I know for a fact that Clan Universal does.

"Well, uh, can you help me anyway?"

" No."

Father's Day had consumable and equipment discount. That's the last discount we've had.

 

Camo sale was in May, or five months ago. It didn't include style or paints.

We spend the most per player of any server, That is a Fact.

That feels correct but any sources on that?

This is pretty much the thinking of every other country in the world, fleece the West for cash because they are "stupid". This has much to do with ignorance and in the case of the Russians, it shows immaturity with how capitalism is done here. We have quite a bit of disposable income and spend it freely BUT we are long steeped in the free market and are pretty savvy consumers. We like sales. We like a "deal". We often know we are getting boned in a transaction and sometimes will buy anyways because we have the money to do so. The success of Wargaming in NA is in spite of their pathetic marketing. When consumers are enjoying themselves and have a product they like, they will sometimes spend even though they understand it isn't a particularly good deal. This only works for a while though, eventually people grow weary of being taken advantage of and a company will be seen in a bad light. Reputation matters and if people feel they have been screwed over, well they will do what they can to exact a bit of revenge including poor reviews and memes. 

I feel I am probably pretty typical of a US consumer. Have no problems dropping $20 on something I may only marginally want. If someone gives me a significant coupon or has a good sale, I may even look at their products even though I may have only a passing interest in what they are offering. Having a sale AND having a coupon will make me look really hard at what is there and I will make excuses to buy stuff even though I don't want it. Successful companies in the West often pull people in with this tactic. It is rare to have a product that people must have no matter what the price. Apple is a pretty good example of this and has become super successful based only on the loyalty of their customer base. There are other examples of this with luxury goods like cars, jewelry, clothes, food, etc but they are not the norm and cater to the affluent.

Wargaming has much to learn how marketing and sales are done in the West. Right now they are stuck at trying to rake in as much cash as they can before people lose interest in their product. They should start trying to build a larger customer base and not try and get every last cent out of the people they have now. It is shortsighted and shows a lack of experience in how capitalism works. I don't blame them necessarily, they are still new to the free market but they need step up their game.

When's the last time we had anything on sale at all that didn't cost Gold? It seems NA's been completely stripped of all discounts.
