"Those of you interested in hard currency will have plenty of packages to choose from. The most prominent offer this week will be the Big Six bundle – 6,000 gold and 6,000,000 credits will provide a solid resource basis for every progress-oriented commander out there. Please also note that the credit conversion is much more profitable when purchasing this package, with a conversion rate of 440 credits for 1 gold, instead of the usual 400 credits for 1 gold!"


~22€worth of gold and some credits, now only 66,95...

this might actually be the worst offer ever

Dat price range ...

Seriously this is by far the most expensive F2P I have ever seen. I mean I really want to support WG but the amount of money you guys charge is simply insane.

thats so true. If gold was half the price, i would buy lots of it to get a few Tier 8 premium tanks and convert my elite tanks XP into free XP. As it is, i'm not buying any more than the one package i got, which will last me with premium time for a few months.

The PzKpfw IV Schmalturm is a Premium German medium Tier VI tank. It has an amazingly accurate gun with great penetration that will make enemies fear you as you snipe at them from far away. The tank’s additional side-skirts make it more resistant to explosive rounds, including artillery fire.

Wait, weren't we told that those sideskirts are just a cosmetic detail? I am confused now.

Wow. Really, prices are insane. I remember back then when I bought Type 59. It was around 25 EUR (I do not remember exact price but definitely less than 30 EUR). I thought that price is insane but look at those prices now! Almost everything is 50 EUR! Way too much!

They're charging the price of an AAA game for one tank...or 5 months' premium...no thanks. Really love this game, despise the business model. This kind of pricing in F2P is about as ethical as a financial pyramid scam.

As far as I know they have no effect at all besides looking something different to the regular PZIV.

I do not agree with most of the gift offers now a day as it seems like WN has increased the cost of almost everything from the "good old days" when the Löwe cost 7200 gold (or somewhere near that price range). Still, it's their game and they do what they want with it and it seems to be working as people are still playing it hehe.

Anyways, the thing I would really like to see is some sort of permanent or large scale charity pack, one which do not expire in one to four weeks, one which exist for about half a year and at the end of that time all the charity money is given to the charity and then WN posts how much money that they collected for it. And then they add another new package for another charity to do the same thing again.
It's not an order, it's a kind suggestion. From me to you WN, please make it happen, I would really support such compassion!

PS. WN is still great, it has flaws, but all in all I still think they are on the right track.
PSS. Why not add a World of Tanks soundtrack to the gift shop?

There ought to be a big public service sticky at the top of the forums, and displayed on the tech tree:
"Newcomers, be aware that gift shop tanks can be bought at 30% or 50% discount if you wait for the right opportunity (or if you want them quicker, just move to the Russian servers)".
This "offer" gives about Euro 1 discount on the Schmalturm package, vs. the 30% - c. Euro 6 - thats just been discounted off the tank itself on RU....

Why aren't you giving us the same gift shop with similar offers as the RU/NA servers?

https://na.wargaming.net/shop/
https://ru.wargaming.net/shop/

i want that gift shop! many of us want it! why wont you give us it!
i would buy more if i had that shop, now i look at the gift shop and see ''hmm i need that but not all that stuff meh i'l wait till next offer'', with that i can just go get what i want.

(really WG you got to fix these differences between servers, People are getting agitated)

absolutely pathetic
.
the gift shop is a complete joke same tanks every month in the same overpriced/stupid bundles
.
i really feel sorry for the people who think these are good offers they are boring/stale/repetitive/terrible
.
also nice false advertising on the pz4s "The tank’s additional side-skirts make it more resistant to explosive rounds, including artillery fire."
.
i spit on your pathetic offers
