Well it wasn't, if anything it was a reward tank for Alpha Testers and that version has not been sold (KV-220 Alpha).

 

But yeah I do agree with the general point you are going for.

 

Cobra 6

Cobra 6

 

I don't have it, nor will I get it on this occasion, but I don't mind them selling it again. I only discovered/got into the game about 2 years after its release. So for people that got in late, or new players it's nice to get access to the rare tanks. Some people don't have the money to buy all the stuff as soon as it gets released either.

 

These offers are better than the usual crap you find in the premium shop.

Love it or hate it but the collectors gems are the only good specials Wargaming EU offer so perhaps tone down with the "it was not supposed to go on sale again" comments lest they decide to stop with the collectors gems entirely.

KV220 or CDC hmm tough choice as they are pretty much the same price.

Its a decent enough tank with limited matchmaking, if I was a cynical sob I would be convinced that this was deliberate.

 

Make premium tanks that are reasonable because they are generally weaker than fully upgraded similar tier tanks have limited matchmaking lower repair costs and enhanced earnings

Remove them from the game making them "rare"

Bring them back occasionally at vastly inflated prices

 

Production costs to make one virtual KV220 zero

Production costs to produce 6500 in game gold zero

Cost of materials for above zero

 

fyi I own 40 premium tanks some you have given me some I have won most I bought I love collecting them and still want more.

Some were bought full price, some on release with 30 days premium other bought much later when they went on sale.

Never have and never will buy using a deal like thie one because wargaming has a habit of not making premium tanks for sale using in game gold.

 

Happy to buy the KV220 if I can later on use the 6500 towards the next premium gem of the week or the Scorpion or AMX13-57 and so on.

Not going to happen because if the past is anything to go by when the next offer comes along it will be shop only and contain even more gold padding.

well i decided to buy it, it'll go with my other premiums (IS-2 Berlin, IS-6 and Church III) to help train my IS-3 crew, who are just starting their 4th skill, and quite a few other Dingers have one, so we'll be 'tooning up later...

 

that's my 39th premium tank, but the only freemium i kept was the Tetrarch, the rest went without a single battle being played in them, i also sold the jgtiger 8.8 - i just couldn't make it work, then the T2 light and matilda IV really don't like them two...
