Just wanted to spend some gold on discounted planes. 

 

They are listed under 'Specials", V-E Day , Part 1 as discounted, special is still valid for a couple days. 

 

But when I go into depot and try to purchase them, they are listed at the regular gold price, no discount at all. 

 

Any ideas?

 

P.S.: used WGCheck and restarted client several times, just to make sure, still no actual discounts on any planes. 

 

 

Update: SOLVED, see thread below.

I'm seeing discount prices in Depot and Tech Tree, for instance 4760gld for UK Meteor.

What price do you see for the Meteor?

Are you saying as you go to purchase a plane the price goes back to normal?

 

I get discount price right up to the 'Purchase button.

Weird. 

I only see the reduced prices in the mission/special window.

In tech tree and depot all planes (prem and regular) have the normal price, e.g. Meteor 6800 and Blenheim IV 1100.

And since at least SunnyKim seems to have the same issue, it is probably not an individual problem.

Yeah that's strange, maybe send in a Ticket about this if you haven't already.

 

If you go to main WOWP webpage, find the 'Warplanes' header and look up and purchase your planes from there.

Hopefully you will see discounts there.

Hmm, it could be something that you have to clear your cache with, there are times where prices don't update correctly for some strange reason. You appear to be relatively new so you probably don't know how to clear your cache yet so...

 

1: Open up Wargaming Game Center

2: Open up your World of Warplanes section

3: Next to the "Play Game" button there will be a little dropdown arrow, click on this arrow

4: You will see launch options, click on "Clear Cache on Launch" or something of the like.

 

Hopefully this fixes your issue but, if not then there's something a bit more screwed up than I imagined. Also another thing to note, when you go to purchase the plane it should still display the sale price despite the tech tree showing the normal price, so unless the sale is down, don't worry you can still buy it with a discount to boot.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

HA!

So many years playing this game, and I still forget about the cache hickups.... 

Thanks for reminding me Reitousair, that was it. 

 

Solved.
