The T2 Light is a good fun tank, but takes a lot of getting used to.  I bough it early and havea 30% WR initially, but it's more like 60% these days.

Anyway the gift shop isn't the place to look for bargains for yourself, it's really there for........gifts.  Probably mostly where someone wants to ask a partent/other for a WoT present.

The only package that realy interests me is the "Hunting Season"-package for €49,95 but then i started calculating...:

Jagdtiger 8,8 - 10.000g
30 Days prem - 2500g
200k silver - 500g
1 garage slot - 300g
+2000g
Totals = 15.300g
wich is worth €52,70 (compared to the 14500g for €49,95) so you save yourself €2,75 wich is barely over 5%.
Now i might add that when i detract the 200k credits, wich i don't consider to be a very valuable asset to this package (since i just bought a Tier VIII prem tank), i lose another €1,72 (compared to same gold package, if i'd compare it to the 2500g or 5500g it would be higher) wich adds up to a profit of €1,03! that is a full 2% discount!

Now, i'm not completely stupid so if i realy want to get myself a Jagdtiger88 i will wait till the Tier VIII prems are 15% off again wich happens in regular intervals and buy everything seperatly:
-Buy 14500 gold for 49,95
   -Jagdtiger88 - 8500g
   -1 garage slot - 300g
   -30day prem -2500g
   -200k credits - f that! i just got a Tier VIII prem! why would i need to convert gold to silver now?
   wich will leave me with 3200 gold, so i made 1200 gold profit when i reduct the 2000g from the gift shop offer.

Sorry WG, for someone who can actualy calculate that gift shop offer just isn't profitable  :sad:

(EDIT: what i want to add to anyone reading this, i am not trying to say "hurrr! when i buy things on sale they are cheaper! durrr!"
I just want to point out that compared to other discounts on the SAME vehicles that pop up very regular, a -5% price reduction on a timed gift shop package realy isn't that great of a deal while i feel
that buying a whole package of premium stuff should offer some better value, atm it's not tempting at all since the profits are very small compared to buying everything seperatly, only €2,75 (or a true €1,03) in this case.)

People just seem to miss the point of the gift shop. Not all that surprising, coming to think about it.

Maybe WG is missing the point of a gift instead of vice versa? What is the point in getting it from the gift store if buying pure gold for them is more efficient and cheaper? It makes no sense. And a difference of € 1 is not enough because you are not as flexible as when sending them pure gold. This has been said many times.

That it's a gift fine but make it more practical then pure gold else what is the point behind it with all the random items that hold no value to the average player.

According to the Blog we are not allowed to link to SerB said the Type 59 will NEVER be back on sale.

Try Ectar's then

Check for Ectar's response in the Gift Shop Packages for March

On the US forums a list was posted recently to show all the tanks we can't offer, that list is pretty much the same for EU. It will take something exceptional for a tank on that list to feature in a regular package. I will echo again that the Type 59 will not be sold again in the foreseeable future and the majority of questions about it being on sale again go unanswered because we can only say this so many times before it's clear some people just won't accept what we're saying or take note of it.
Also just to confirm, the Type 59 G will never come to the EU servers either. This has also been confirmed directly by the developers.

I agree totally, but if all the items in the gift shop were available in the game then I'd see no reason for many players to have an 'oops-a-daisy' but since items like the lowe, etc. are not available in-game it's technically not just a gift shop but also an online store where many players will pick up deals for themselves (not particularly good deals - but hey!)
