Odd Title but feel it suits what i wanna say...

As everyone knows 2020 has been a crapyear for most with job losses, tight for cash due to the ongoing pandemic.

 

Now with that in mind and the issue a few weeks ago of the loot boxes being rigged (and from what i gather people still waiting on refunds!), who at wargaming said f** all the people who still own coupons for 25% off premium ships with doubloons in the armory? cause i saved it for today when i thought i could buy a georgia for 25% off, but low and behold wargaming seem to pick and chose what ur coupons apply to... 

 

This isnt me demanding wargaming give the voucher an allowance here (cause we all know thats never gonna happen) but seriously wargaming? lucky for myself i will still be buying a georgia as i want one and if i make the coal in time cool i can buy another ship, but seriously wargaming stop with this picking and chosing of when we can use discounts we have held onto for aslong as most of us can remember.

 

Like i said i will still be buying The USS Georgia (was tempted to get another if the voucher had been able to be applied) but shame on you wargaming...

There were a series of "promotional" coupons that expired today (or last night, not really sure). Those were "special ones" for Christmas season and had a shorter expiration, it was clearly pointed and the coupons even had a different color than the regular ones, I guess those are what you are referring in your post and I really don't see what's the issue about them. Also, you should have in your Armory the "regular" coupons, one of them for 25% discount, unless you already used it. In any case, the expiration date was explicitly indicated, even had a timer on it and I'm sure because I used one yesterday precisely because it was about to expire.

I have to agree to this. Just honor the coupon.  It is kind of cheesy to pick and choose ships eligible. It should be a general coupon.

Must be nice to be able to buy a ship at all, the amount they want for ships either cash, doubloons or resources. Don't get to play as much as I'd like so earning resources is slow, trying to find work and then working as much as I can when I can makes for no time and little money. Game is a good way to relax and unwind but ships cost too much in these messed up times.

agreed, this wasnt a topic started to bash people who couldnt but actually the opposite to show that people such as urself are having a real craptime of it all and if they could of just let this one thing slide after the mess what was the lootboxes they would of done some good... hell if the coupons worked i would of sent ya the money to use a coupon if u had a valid one...

I got one, and happy to have it. I always wanted the 360 degree turrets on the Nazi light cruisers but didn't want to work the line to get them.

I kinda like the Nurnberg siblings, all 3 of them.  Konigsberg isn't bad at its tier.  Very squishy and easily detonated from the rear, all 3 of them.  Use caution.

Well. You could ask a NA Community Manager. Just ask nicely. You just never know. Anything is possible.  Except Tyranny, that got the stop sign. E Pluribus Unum.

There is an old country saying: "You can catch more flies with honey, than with vinegar."

I'm not down on the people that can afford ships. My issue is that in a lot of events you need this or that ship and the way things are now days a lot of us don't have that extra $$ to spend on games and the amount of coal or steel needed is way beyond what I can get with the limited playing time I have at the moment add on the fact that the ships in the armory is very limited (most not being that special anyway). Just frustrating trying to improve and being hampered so strongly by needing ships for events and cost of ships, coupons not a big help.

Nice. It's a bit like asking your favorite celebrity for an autograph, and they go the extra mile and kick you in the balls instead.

well buddy, it's your job to be aware of the expiration date of anything. Can't blame that on WG. The expiration date is clearly labeled on the coupon.

And you keep taking the kicks cause you don't know any better.

Better yet, you got the autograph although it was from some bum off the street signing the celebrities name on your forehead.

Bwhahahaha.

WG you so silly.:cap_fainting:
