Do you add new packages or just rename existing ones?

another terrible set of gift shop offers
.
i want to know who makes these offers
.
on the big and beautiful bundle
.
the difference between it and the golden bundle is that you give up 7500 gold for 3 million credits ONLY a fool would take 3 million credits over 7500 gold

LOL more Gift Shop offers ?

HAHAHA you should change the name, to something like " place where we screw you out of money" maybe or " give us your money idiots"

When you have something thats worth buying and isnt a rip off, then call it Gift Shop.

Bombardier Bundle is pretty good. I hope they make similar ten euro bundle of Chi-Nu Kai. I hate those 20 euro bundles with cheap low tier premium tanks.

seriously WG.. how long will it take for you guys to notice that the new chinese premiums are way too expensive?? You can advertise time in your gift events as much as you wont.. the sales wont go up with those prices. Make them around 25% - 30% cheaper and they will sell like hot cakes.

Please remember guys the gift shop isn't a "discount shop". If it was like that then it would make the in-game shop redundant. Our packages are set for a variety of players. In the future there might be different stuff available.  As with the weekend specials there is only so much that can be done until you perhaps see the same packages that may have been offered before.

I would like to see weak tanks(pz5/m10 or upcoming t34/85 with 126mm penetrations on tier7) on a discount or for a half price with some gold-there is nothing for me to buy them for a real money in-game,because u need a lot of gold ammo to balance high tier battles.

Well, I couldn't care less about most gift shop offers, but the "Big is Beautiful" bundle is strictly worse this time then the "Golden Bundle".
If you just instantly convert the 7.5k gold surplus into credits, you end up with the same amount of credits (3kk), 4 extra days of premium and even save 4cent (value!).
And that's without considering how much more useful and flexible 7.5k gold are over plain 3kk credits.

I guess the kind of player buying the bundle wouldn't even notice it in the first place....

"The variety of players" you refer to is one specific group of people with spare money who do not know better than to use gift shop.

Of course if it would be cheaper to buy prem tank at gift shop than in game the in game shop would be redundant.

But it doesn't have to be like that. There could be rare low tier tanks for sale, you could offer a regular tier 8 prem tank for some extra money if you would give something extra (NO! not large repair kits) like a poster with tank art (like the loading screens or weekend specials illustrations) or wot/specific-tank key ring, something "material", you name it, shipped to the gift's receiver.
If some changes were made to the available tank paint jobs you could offer unique camo or emblems that come with purchased tanks and maybe on top of that custom named crew with custom portraits (within in game selection) .... and that's all just off the top of my head. Really, it could be so much more complex and "gift-like".

As it is now, with rare exceptions, be it because of really saving (very little bit) money on specific offers or because the item can not be obtained otherwise (new prems), the gift shop is a waste of money and people who have any respect to their money and even a vague clue will rather gift gold and good advice how to spend it rather than gift shop package.

I can only second what Classic Frog said. There is no surprise, no real special offer. And by that I do not mean cheaper than usual.
I wrote some months before, that I want to see special tanks, which will be sold only one or day or less and then only on special events as price or so.
Or make some kind of surprise packages, where you can only chose the kind of tank: TD or Arty or normal Tank
And additionally you can put tanks of different rarity into them.
Or offer special premium tanks, where you later have the possibility to chose between different (gun)setups.
Or what about some kind of premium mobile "field garage", which let you change the equipment/modules etc during the 30 seconds of the match setup.
But not as consumable! It should be a permanent addition.

And please save us from these additional premium consumables, they are pay2win thing which I never used and always sold directly.
