Looks a lot better, and I get prices in my national currency.

Pretty sure most of the complaints about the gift shop were not about the aesthetics of the page but more so about the lack of value in the packages that are being sold.

I do like the new design, easier to search through and having the price in my native currency is a big plus.

Oh one little thing, the link on the bottom of the news article does not work...
-
Edit: Yeah, now the link opens the news article again only in a new tab...
-
Another edit: Third time is the charm, it finally works now.

People have 2 issues with the gift shop - you cannot get rare tanks there and it generally has poor value offers for players.  Taking into account that those 2 issues are not what WG have designed the gift shop for I would say:
.
I like the redesign.  I think it looks very smart, is well layed out and it's easy to find things.  Also great to see all the tanks there, with their prices in local currency.  Best of all is the countdown timer for offers, which is an excellent idea.  So good job, well done.  Kudos to the team involved.
.
Now, how do I get my hands on a Panzer II J or BTSV?   :hiding:

Nicer design, better range of products, but some of the items look messy...for example.
        

The description scrolls off the bottom of the text box and you can't see all of the description.

Nice to see you update the visuals, but the main problem was never that. It was the actual value/price comparison of the offers/tanks in there.
Couple that with the price differences of packages compared to other regions as well as the limited amount of tanks on offer and the fact that buying the same content in-game is usually cheaper.

Still, nice effort though!

I like the new 3-month premium account option, allows for some planning if you know you'll be away from the game for extended periods and don't wish to waste premium time.

I think my only concern has been addressed and that is the difference in price between GBP and euros that meant anyone using GBP was overpaying due to a poor exchange rate.

As far as I can tell that has now been fixed as the gift store now is available in GBP for anyone in the UK. The gift store prices for gold as an example now match the portal prices for gold which where always much more favourable

I only "think" its fixed as I can't remember what the old portal price was for 5000 gold and now you get redirected to the gift shop from the portal and dont get the seperate purchase dialogue.

I like the new design, localised prices and easy payment methods.
I have one problem though. Some time ago I watched your advertisement about Pz IV S.
You said that it is a perfect choice for people who want to just 'sit back and relax'.
The old tier5 PzIV (before the patch) was my favourite tank so I bought the PzIVs and was crushed with disappointment how bad it performs.
Long story short - your advertisement lied. I made a purchase based on a lie and I feel cheated (I know, nobody cares  :smile: ).
You should allow people to sell back premium tanks for gold!

Argh, I can't access it yet!

But we're glad there's some positive feedback.  Looking forward to checking it out for myself.

A big improvement over the previous interface and options.
However, the special offers/discounts are paltry, even when compared to the in game discounts on weekend events, such as 50% off on premium tanks etc. There should be corresponding/similar special discounts from time to time on Premium tanks in the gift shop.

Looks good but I have a question. Why do you guys from WG remove premium tanks? For example you removed type 59, kv-5 and some other tanks. You know, there are people I see in matches with my type who are dreaming to buy a type 59. I don't see any reason why WG should remove premium tanks once they put them for sale.

Not sure if all of you guys support me but I think it's good if all premium tanks are for sale.

And yes, I think once a year all premium tanks should be on sale at 50%. It would help people build up their game.
