So, I got the 30% off coupon today. Great right? Well... I can't actually buy anything with it because of the restrictions on it. Or at least I can't buy anything I don't already have. So it got me thinking.

If I buy a ship I already have (say Tirpitz) for 30% off... do I get the full value of the Tipitz in doubloons? Or do I get the -30% value in doubloons...

@Pigeon_of_War Can you answer this?

 

Update:

Never got an answer, so I took the plunge and yes, I got full doubloon value of the boat I bought for 30% off.

According to leaked documents that Sid alpha got about Ai manipulating players,  if WG is using an ai, stop making purchases to get a coupon.

Its the new hotness version of dynamic pricing that Amazon tried a couple years back.

I got the same, and I haven't a clue what set it off.  Wasn't spectacular, whatever it was.  Possibly "Devastating Strike", "First Blood", or maybe even "It's Just a Flesh Wound".  Maaaaaybe "Confederate"?  Think I did that once last night but I don't think it was the battle before that popped up.

I'm pretty sure it's marketing.  The wording "that Achievement" works for just about any accomplishment.  Phrasing it as a "win" makes you feel good.   Using the word "treat yourself" is more subtlety.

 

Great Achievement (you did good).  You're WINNER (you feel good).  TREAT yourself (yeah..that's right...I DO deserve a treat).  Oh my, I can even save 10%...SIGN ME UP!!!!

If you want doubloons, you can always buy them and use the30% off coupon on that purchase.  Thats what I did when I got my 30% off coupon.  I got 12000 doubloons for $36.18 after the discount.

The fine print on the coupon say it can't be used on doubloons, limited time offers, already discounted items, or special offers.

Hmm.  They must have changed that coupon then.  Because my 30% off coupon was able to be applied to a doubloon purchase.  Does your coupon say it can't be used for any doubloon purchase or does it say it can't be used on doubloon package purchases?

It specifically says doubloons.

Nice coupon, I got it too and I was going to use it... only we find out that almost the entire shop is on some kind of special, discount, offer, whatever, or includes doubloons. 

So what's the damn point other than to troll me into looking at the premium shop?

@KilljoyCutter Use it mine to buy Kii (a ship I already have) and so I got the doubloon value and a port slot, so it was essentially 30% of doubloons.

I don't have any of the premium ships currently in the shop, or I'd have done that.
