I read that the silver discount for Tiers 9 and 10 during the Japan on-track are 15%.  Isn't it usually 30% for those tiers?...or am I possibly thinking of the semi-annual Tier 10 sales?  Luckily, I only have one more Japanese vehicle to purchase, the Type 5. I'm rounding of course, but isn't that only about a million silver off the normal 6.5 price?  I'll survive, but 25% would have been a nice number.

At least you remembered the discount. For the last 3 on tracks in a row, I've bought back a tank when the on track was announced, waiting for the XP OP, forgetting about the silver discount. :(

You're right.  It is usually 30% at tier IX and X.  However, I think it is usually 30% at tier VIII as well.  50% up and including tier VII.

The last on-track started this 15% crap.

to tell the truth, I didn't take note the last few times...shame on me. I do remember buying a handful of tier 10s during the recent tier 10 sale, so that is probably what I'm getting mixed up then.

In the past I did some free XP conversions to make sure I could by a tier IX or X tank at a discount and then use the extra 25% to build the crew and/or upgrades. Right now I'm working towards the tier IX medium. It's not worth converting the free XP for the silver savings. If I don't get there in time it's no big deal.

I have about 100,000XP on the STA-1. I should get there, but I'm not going to convert to do it.

The discounts for the last two tiers are pretty low.  As someone else stated, they started this with the last on-track event.  Kind of disappointing, really.  It definitely needs to be upped a little more.

You shouldn't have any problems getting to the STB then, or at least pretty close.

I've been having the damnest time getting my x2s (and the x3 on Monday) this week. I've had multiple 3500-4500 damage dealt losses this week. It's too slow to carry the team on its back. I'm under 70k left to the Type 5 though, so I should have it just a day or two into the Op. I'll play it until I get my 2 mastery, then it will gather dust in the garage waiting for a buff someday.

Shouldn't you be happy you get a discount at all? I paid full price for all my Japanese tanks.

After what happened at Troy, I for one will definitely look a gift horse in the mouth.
