100 euros for a package?

Are you insane?  :confused:

30000 gold costs the same.

Gold: 15,000
Credits: 10,000,000

Well... 15.000g x 400 = 6.000.000 Credits (ingame conversion rate). So they add 4.000.000 as Bonus.

Still... Who in their right mind would buy credits worth 50 € ...!?

The problem is that they still haven't realised the following thing: 400 credits for 1 gold is very little! The conversion rate should be around 1000 credits for 1 gold, so that it might actually be useful to buy credits (note WG: people would buy them with real money). This would also help with the gold shell fests since you couldn't profit any more shooting HEAT/APCR only.

I wouldn't go for it, but I think it works out at 40,000 gold if you value the credits in the package at the standard 400/1 rate (10,000,000/400 = 25,000) plus the 15,000 raw gold

*edit*

I'd sooner see what is happenning with the weekend itself first, the gift shops there all month :)

Don't forget most of these offers are aimed at those who get Daddy to pay for on his credit card, as they can't be bothered to earn the money themselves.

Like others I'm not interested in buying credits with real money. After the end-of-may packages I thought: 'WG finally got the point that players don't want to buy automatic fire extinguishers/big repair kits/large first aid kits for real cash.' Unfortunally the 'Tier VIII of the Week'-bundle proves I was too optimistic. In the regular gift-shop packages you offer: Tank+Garage slot=package. Can you do that with the weekly offers too?

Since you asked for feedback: Please, stop adding spam to the packages.

The conversion rate for the Fort Knox bundle is 666. =)

So, if I buy th Fort Knox package WG will remember that and if I convert gold for credits in next 2 weeks they'll give a rate of 666.  Not sure how that will be policed?

Will any gold for dcerdit payment be at 666 per gold in net 2 weeks opr just for the people who have bought Fort Knox?

It's a bit of a bug in the forum. After you reload the page the amount of battles should appear.

Well, the big problem in these packages are the credits. Buying credits with gold is the worst thing u can do. Better buy some premium vehicles and spin them around, than buying credits with actual life money. It would be better if WG Europe made some nice exclusive gift packages with some rare tanks, not things we can actually get one way or another. If i buy gold with my money for 50 euros worth i can customize every aspect- i can get, for example, a tier 8 premium, some premium time, or just save some gold. Buying the package, however, i give my money for things that are rather useless. Part of the ingame fun is to grind those credits, not just buy them.
