If they altered it so a repair kit was only lost if it was used I would be interested as it is I use the toolkit which is permanent.

Nothing of interest for me this month as I either already have or don't want whats on offer.

I do know someone after a T34 so he at least will be happy

Yes it is.  Very nice tank indeed, fast, small good camo, decent gun.  A bit short on Ammo but there has to be balance.

Good idea to add a low cost gift item to the shop.

Suggestion for April: Make gift packages with some of the low tier tanks (S35, FCM Pak, Locust, Lefh, etc) + garage slot + 100% crew + 3 permanent camo.

Was tempted by the American Steel pack until I scrolled down and saw "20 Large Repair Kits" Ugh, no thanks. Please WG stop using these repair kits to boost up the prices.

The gift shop isn't a discount shop. If every package provided massive savings then there would be no point in ever having the vehicles also for sale in-game for gold or for players to purchase the regular gold packages and other tanks.  These are alternative packages for players who may want to spend some money on the game, or pick up a premium tank with additional bonuses.

Sure the packages might not be for everyone, but they're there to provide options. Without the repair packs the prices wouldn't be altered much so they're in there for an additional benefit for players either as the consumable or to be sold for credits.

The Locust is a sneaky little tier III which can cause havoc in some matches and with it using 3 crew members it could be handy for helping train up your T71 crew if you pick one up this month and plan to keep it.  For a little bit more than the Lowe with the T34 package you're getting additional bonuses that will all help you in the long run when playing the tank.

You know sompething about discount?
Package with all what you propose dont need any one(especially Repair kits)
Price betwen your package and separately buying its contents is negligible.
Most times i better buy gold for buy tank then that packages.
Business laws have long been known, it's time you learn them.
Sorry for true.

I appreciate the purpose of "gift" shop and that the prices are a tad higher than gold value. But either way, it doesn't change the fact that the packages aren't very attractive. I wouldn't buy a pack with a bunch of useless gold consumables, be it for me or for a friend.

There used to be a package with Dicker Max + garage slot + 100% crew. That's a lot more interesting.
Gold repair kits are not much use and can be seen as a cheap way to make you spend gold -> use them, forget to untick auto-refill, oops.

Only good offer is the T34 one IMO (Assuming you have the T34 otherwise not worth it, unless you really want the T34). Would buy it rather than 50e gold package, I mean you get more "bang" for your buck with the T34 package (A bit like when the packages were first introduced, people were buying lots of them since they offered better gold per euro rate compared to normal gold packs)
T34=12,500 gold 12,000 gold
2500 gold
1 month premium=2500 gold (I count this as 2500 gold as I would use part of the gold anyway for premium)

So a total of 17k gold for 57,59e
Now the closest one you're going to get is the 50e gold package (14,5k gold) and 7e gold package (1,5k gold). Those would total up to 16k gold for 56,90e

So simple math gives us that the T34 is actually better gold wise to buy.
T34 package: 303,8722 gold per euro Misscalculation it's actually 295,19014 gold per euro!
50e+7e gold packs (16k gold total): 281,19508 gold per euro
50e+10e gold packs (17k gold total): 283,80634 gold per euro

Can we at least get some tanks that are not available in game tech tree?
For example:
PzKpfw II Ausf. J,
PzKpfw IV Hydraulic,
MTLS-1G14
etc...

I would buy those, no matter how overpriced they are...

Au contraire Ectar - there used to be discounted vehicles, etc. that were savings over the combined cost of the individual components.

While it's nice to see things available for newer players or those who missed things out previously, personally they are too expensive for what you get, and invariably have addons (like the much maligned large repair kits) that most don't use.

I can only assume as these keep getting trotted out month on month however that someone's buying them (and the cynical autobuying Loituma refers to works); not likely to be those commenting here though!
