2020 Summer sale?

So the highlight of every summer for me ever since I began playing this game has always been the summer sale that occurred. Generally, this takes place late July/early August however it's almost August and we haven't even gotten a clue if it's happening let alone confirmation when. Normally I'd just assume that it's going to be a late-year but with all the crap WG has pulled in the months with the lack of events or anything really I'm really starting to think we're not getting a summer sale at all, or at least not like in previous years. The only clue that summer sale might happen is that it's happened in previous years and that a brand new "summer" camouflage is coming for Atlanta.

If someone from WG would just confirm or deny summer sale is happening I'd appreciate it.

Actually, the best WoWS sales historically occur around Christmas. Yes, there have been summer sales, but they don't tend to equal the deals from Xmas (1/2 off premium time, Santa crates, and sales around Thanksgiving).

This was on reddit about a week ago with a sneak peak being summer themed skins most likely.  

Edit: probably will have more than just skins, that just what I figure boyarsky was referring to for "revealed content"

It has been a little light on directives and combat missions.

Yeah, I don't think that's it. I thought they always sell older premium ships for significant discounts? IIRC they had 20 days of ships, different one each day, at 50% off.

They do, but there's no reason why they can't put some general cosmetics in as well. (That said, I hope there's ships - I've been waiting for this sale)

Its probably not a skin exclusive sale, i was just trying to reference the content from the blog post.  The skin for atlanta could mean that atlanta will at least be on sale, but well have to wait and see

August is the anniversary of the game and in the past they’ve had all kinds of sales and collections (and snowflakes, I believe, last year)  WG seems to be phoning it in this year, maybe they’re too busy re-tooling subs again, so we’ll see what this anniversary looks like.

I'm suspecting that their latest deal with Azur Lane obliged them to push it back. Licensing agreements might specify when the ships have to be sold (e.g. to tie in with AL's schedule) and that meant changes.

I will be looking forward to this year's sale if it comes to fruition.

Sarcasm?  

With the Dockyard event, German carrier directives, and latest Ranked season all happening concurrently, my plate has been pretty full as of late.

Anniversary event should be right around the corner as well.  Last year they gave away Super Containers for T10 ships and gift containers for lower tiers:

Would be cool to see something similar again in September.

Is that the universal symbol for sarcasm?  I wasn't aware.

I've always thought that a sarcasm font would be a million dollar idea, but I suppose this will do.

Aloha,

So YES some of the items were revealed for our summer sale here: https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/42 as some have mentioned.

However, the other stuff and scope has not all been released yet. Just gotta wait on the announcement. :Smile_izmena:

It's from HTML code.  Before forums had toolbars for fonts, you had to use html code to make something bold, italic, etc.

To make something boldface, you had to write <b> something </b>.

People started using sarcasm tags to denote sarcasm, and would make a statement as follows:

<sarcasm> Well, CVs are actually pretty balanced. </sarcasm>

After a while, it just became abbreviated to /s at the end.

Excited to see what goes on sale this year. It's been awhile since I've gotten a new ship so maybe this can be a chance to try something new.

(Also that Atlanta camo gives me huge mario sunshine vibes)

I like the idea of changing consumable slots myself.  For me it would be nice that the T would always be repair.

I was literally just thinking the same thing when I checked it out.  Might have to dust off the Wii for some Cube games this weekend. :cap_rambo:
