It seems unlikely but then again WG loves their secrets...

Does seem rather bizarre that they've gone back to this super secret, don't tell your customers anything attitude.

Considering the outrage is was generating a few years back, you'd think they'd know better.:Smile_amazed:

isnt Christmas a different day in russia? easter sure is

The primary religion in Russia, IIRC, is the Russian Orthodox church.  And the Orthodox church does indeed celebrate Christmas on a different day.  Orthodox Christmas is on January 7th.

No to your no. Last year, the sale was unannounced  or given very little fanfare and started very close to Christmas. Almost every premium ship, except the newest ones (like Kidd) and the forbidden ones, went ino the tech tree for doubloons at discounts equivalent to the tech tree discounts:

50% tiers 2-5

30% tiers 6-7

15% tier 8

Im not denying that it was unannounced, but the sale started very early in the season. I remember it specifically because I started buying crates in hopes of getting a GC. Then after expressing my annoyance of getting nothing but a Gallant, one of my clanmates said "why don't you just buy it off the tech tree? They're discounted."

We just have a new ship and new campaign bundle, it is not good marketing to put up sales of ships straight after.

Maybe on Christmas day or later time.

I'd like to know this as well, as I want to buy Ashitaka.  Is WG support nice enough to give back the doubloon discount if I were to buy now and it goes on sale tomorrow hypothetically?  I doubt it but if they were consumer-friendly enough and there's a precedent I would just buy her now.

Actually, that's right - they put them all on sale right before they cleared out all the old line-up 

The new batch of premiums in game should stay as is for a little while before they put those on sale .. maybe after Xmas crates disappear … maybe :)

I'm pretty sure it's going to happen.  They left a strong hint in one of the videos.  The 'traditional ship sale".

They might have been referring to tech tree ships??
