Comments for upcoming/ongoing events:

1. Thanks for coming, this thread will most likely be history(no prediction, for reference only). Feel free to leave a comment.

Past/ongoing events (as of 08/12/2018)

Event Date from Date till consumable Port Slot Upgrade Commander skill redistribute Commander Retraining tier2-3 tier4-5 tier 6-7 tier 8-10 FEXP Comments/URL

Note: certain links are not working after WG changed the name of their sections, e.g. "specials-and-events" to "sales-and-deals".

Note 2: WG started to remove the old discounts in Aug missions onwards. WG is releasing the deals per week instead of per month, and deleting the old deals in the same post.

Note 3: Since the new clan naval base update in 0.7.9 (https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/game-updates/new-clan-base/), your clan can upgrade the "Shipbuilding Yard" to get up to 15% permanent discount on ships. This makes waiting for ship discount on tier 8-10 ships irrelevant, another way of telling you to join a clan.

----------------------------------------------------------------我是分界线---------------------------------------------------------


Story: I have created/compiled a list of discounts happened since August 2016. This is for those who want to plan/predict when they want to buy their ship/upgrades/etc.
This list tracks discounts on consumable, port slot, upgrade, ship and free exp conversion only. Sources are from wows website and personal experience (sometimes WG do not tell you that there is a discount). I also missed out on some (e.g. there was an upgrade discount during the hunt for Bismarck, but I cannot find the link, I remembered because I bought my Baltimore during June 2017 for the upgrade discount).

Feel free to contribute to the table by informing me in the forum on the events I missed/wrong info.

Oh, thought you have info on the current premium ship discount in game. I did not see any discount during last Lunar New Year though.

There have been many, many more than the list states. I can't name them all but as someone who pretty much only ever buys anything when it is on discount I can tell you I haven't had to wait long between purchases.

I felt that there are too many hidden discounts, that is why i want to track them and see. I am also the kind of person that buy ships/upgrades only during discounts.

You and 90% of the player base, explaining why the WoWS virtual economy is set up the way it is. All WG is really interested in is $$/transaction however, which explains why the "discount" is usually a bundle with sweeteners like doubloons or a 10 point captain. You pay more for the premium ship, but still feel you got a deal.

That said I'm seeing 30% discounts on ships like Scharnhorst currently, Dunkerque also... no bundle. So... yay? [Looks pointedly at shiny new Scharny in port...]

If you are referring to the premium shop, then I do not track there. I prefer to use credits instead of money (i.e. never bought a premium ship, yet).
