When I started playing there was a sale on the US fighter line, the first two or three gave me the discount but after that nothing. I sent a ticket in but by the time they got back to me the sale was over. So I see today the Me265 is on sale, I have it researched but not bought so I go to buy it and yet again it's not on sale, same 1,029,000 price as usual. Is there something I'm missing?

hate to sound cynical, but for about a decade the game has been blatantly P2W.  just buy a thiston of gold and get what you want.  go big or go home.  sorry, but it's a banked-in-an-offshore account (cyprus), and chasing after the positive cash-flow model.  if you suspect that's why your solutions arrive too late to do any good, you're likely correct.  i left it for about 4 or so years because it sukt so badly--seems to be coming along nicely now;  either throw cash at it, or grind it--there are no intentional bargains here.  heh.

I think we have a Problem

Buying gold, microtransactions, to save time, with no appreciable advantage in the game, is not "pay to win".  Friggin gen y kiddies and their padded playgrounds and entitlement/trophy for breathing mindset.

Sooo..... 1,029,000 is the sale price for that plane/tier.  I submit the following evidence that you got the thing on sale if you were charged 1,029,000 credits:

Bonus fact:  The "normal" prices for other tier 7's that I can see in the tech tree range from about 1,300,000 to about 1,400,000 credits.  So, you are seeing the sale price for a tier 7.

Normally the 265 is 1.4 million.  Not sure what you are on about.

Well maybe if they made it even remotely clear that that was the sale price I wouldn't have had to ask the question. I checked here https://worldofwarpl...germany/me-265/ to see what the regular price was not knowing that they must have changed it for the sale unlike WoT where they don't. In WoT every discounted price is clear that it's discounted wherever you see it, thought they would do the same here instead of leaving you in the dark, since there is nowhere in the game client that tells me that it's on sale, the Specials page only says expires in two days, that's all it's ever said since I started, there is nothing in the tech tree or the depot that says it's on sale.

It's pretty clear in the pic I posted from the mission screen.  At least,  now you know.

 

WG has never been good at making things easy for people with time in wot with a different ui, different training, different premium plane training,  etc.

There's nothing there for me, if there was I wouldn't have had to ask.

OP, I had the same problem with the P-51 sale last week.  Start the game with the "clear cache" option and you should be fine.

I tried that, still the same.

It worked once, although the sale didn't, but not in a long time.

Did you click on "Reconnaissance"?  That is what opens the list for me.

Yeah, he must be a troll, because bugs in this game are extraordinarily rare.

But there is no bug - the price shown is the correct discounted price.

Thanks, that worked, I wish they'd make navigating this game less mud like. You think that since in WoT the price, wherever you see it, is always marked as on sale with the old and new price as well as the discount, they'd do it here.

You are the one who not only can't figure out the price is discounted without creating a thread on it but also ignoring pretty much everyone above said the same thing on where to see the price difference.  I bet you also create threads complaining you didn't know your box wine was single use and wasn't listed anywhere on the box.

 

Funny thing is the "answer" you wanted in no way reflects what your original post was crying about.
