What happened to Tech Tree ship discounts?

One of the WG practices I liked was how they would put some nations or ship types on discount for a week (TII-V: 50%; TVI-VII: 30%, TVIII-X: 15%). I liked picking up some of the tech tree ships I either FXPed or had previously sold at a discounted price. When I started playing, WG would do this roughly once per month, which about 18 months ago I noticed decreased to about once every 2 months. Now it's almost been 4 months since the last ship discount offer. Any ideas as to when the next offer will occur?

Maybe not coming back?  Replaced by clan naval base discounts and incoming free premium consumables

I think it's this.  Have been with RST for over a year and I have discounts on my open tech tree ships.  I think it's meant to encourage ppl to join clans, even if they're social ones.

Wait, that nonsense is pending again? 

 

9.4 is the schedule. So Wed, May 6th if the 4 week schedule holds.

Ugh.

If everyone has premium consumables, then no one does.  It doesn't help anything.

Sure it does. It helps me get the benefits of premium consumables, without paying for them!

In my estimation anyway, the relative advantage of having them when others do not, is far overshadowed by the absolute added utility of having them, regardless of what others do or do not have.

IOW, I don't care that I have one extra heal and a faster cooldown than someone else, I care that I have one extra heal and a faster cooldown than I had previously.

There was a limited one around Christmas and US-only sale Thanksgiving before that.  The last full tree discount was during the anniversary.

Join a clan. If you don't want to get involved or be super active, join a WOLF clan. Most of them will have the 15% discount on all tech tree ships.
