+ Bundle not too padded. Only extra is gold.

- Still a bundle.

--- One tank for the same price I got Fallout 4 for.

Shame that it's included in a bundle yet again, something you know we didn't ask for and we don't want.

 

Please Wargaming, stop artificially inflating vehicle sales with useless ballast. If we want gold or premium time we will buy them separately.

 

================

 

As for the actual special, *awesome*, I've got a selection of new vehicles that need crew retraining and I was waiting for exactly that. Thanks a lot!

 

I might also buy some T10's

This is not fair at all, that RU server has been able to buy only the tank itself for 27€ since weeks now, and us in the EU are forced to get it only thrrough expensive bundle!

Stop this discrimination WG!

Was just about to hit the +1 for the nice special when I noticed that again ... like before and time and time again ... that you are totally unable to supply us with new premium tanks unbundled!?!?

 

Keep the vehicle only in the web-shop so that only real life money can buy them (instead of in-game tech tree with 'free' cw gold) ... but ffs plz JUST THE TANK!?

 

If I want gold or prem time I'm perfectly able to buy that .... I just want the darn vehicles :/

Where is Ectar now to give him examples when they are late with special announcements.

If i knew that 15% discount will start today i would sell VK A yesterday and then buy VK B during this special.

Silver loss is something like 200k, now you might say that is not much but i rarely have premium account and 120+ tanks in garage with many lines ready to be advanced to next tier so i have to manage my silver with respect and buy tanks when they are on discount..

Oh, you want the tank now, in that case, as with anything else newly released you have to pay a premium, at least with this you get something for the extra you pay, unlike, say, a new phone where you just pay a premium for the fact that it is new and if you wait a couple of months you can get it a lot cheaper.

I will do that and have been doing that pretty much all the time.

 

That does not mean however that we can't continue to point this problem out whenever it arises.

 

Unlike a new phone this tank is just a collection of 0's and 1's, nothing physical and certainly not as expensive to produce.

 

It's a matter of supply and demand, it's Wargaming's task as a service provider to provide the service that is wanted. It has been made abundantly clear on these forums with every new instance that the players want the option to buy *just the tank* and therefore it's WG's job to listen to this (as we are their customers, their source of income) and to provide what is being asked. They managed to almost pull it off with the M4 Improved earlier this week, which was a step in the right direction.

It's not an unreasonable demand and neither does it cost them money to make it available a part from 10 minutes salary for the guy punching in the numbers on the website.

Ah but that's where you are wrong.

 

They will make money out of the "OMG new tank must have" customer who will buy it no matter what they throw in with it.  Don't go assuming the WG marketing department don't know what they are doing.  The M4 improved is just rubbish and they knew that only the most die hard collector would pay a premium for it.

The what?  Sounds like you need to upgrade from that 286 you've been running on.

Yes, WG should fix the laws of physics and make faster than light internet connection.

 

What are you on?

No I'm not wrong at all, they will *still* make money if they sell the tank alone, just slightly less per package.

However this will be compensated because *more* people will buy it if just the tank itself is on offer.

 

So in effect they'll sell more then when they sell the tank with this useless ballast alone.

Lol, blaming wargaming for not announcing the special in advance.

Be happy that you got a decent special finally.

There are no words for some kind of people..
