28,000 gold.

 

Given how little stuff is in the in-game shop these days, I do wonder who would actually have a use for all that gold.


 

Convert 700,000 XP?


 

Buy 560 consumables in the old way, for actual gold?


 

Convert it to credits?


 

Methinks you'll not shift many of these packages today.

duncham1 - agree on this one. The recent marketing activities of not putting most of the new prem tanks in ingame shop has done it's "good".

Especially stupid is that WG never says, is this specific tank to be later added to ingame shop or not. :(

Way not worth it! The BT-SV might be fun for a couple of games but not much more. Power creep has made it an average tank and it's mobility isn't much to brag about. Fairly quick yes but with a huge turning circle.

Then bundling 30 days of premium instead of the full 30500 gold ruins the rest of the package. If you buy 30500 gold and then buy a year's worth of premium with the gold you get much cheaper premium time than the 30 days.

Additionally, as duncham1 says what else would you spend the gold on? All new premium tanks are just temporary website only deals now so you can't buy them for this gold. Wargaming's new strategy doesn't seem very well thought out.

noo, stop selling the rare tanks. there were so few of these tanks before (pz2j and btsv) and now you see them almost every match.

For suckers that buy this, I have a pair of magic socks on sale - when you wear them you gain +3 intelligence and +3 strength. Only 500 euros. :B

The only way for you to get that kind of money off of me is if you put the E25 up ;)

And when are you gonna cross your promises for greed WG?

When are you going to sell Type59, M6 mutant or Pz V/IV?

Let me guess, each of those will be a 200-250 Euro bundles, oh excuse me, I meant 199,99 - 249,99 bundles.

 

Please sell me a bundle that stops the game crashing ty very much.

Not really a collectors Gem anymore if you put it on offer every year. Just like the Pz.IIJ.

 

Nice deal if you need a couple of hours wages worth of gold but otherwise not really.....

So, WG, why not sell only tank? but bundle? again? for such money..???? I have enough money to buy this tank, but dont have enough to buy a bundle. If I have no money, then I'm a BAD COLLECTOR???

 

I've collected lots of your tanks. Bought some, some came from missions. But I've decided not to spend money on this game anymore until it will not be fixed to at least to normal again. Add new maps, return old good maps, fix all the problems all the people are talking about, arties, balances and so on.

 

Also i had completed 20 missions from 30 on Rampage, but you removed it. So you better think how you will implement T-22sr. or Type 59 to the game again, cause it's for COLLECTORS TOO!!! I want to collect them all, if I'm a COLLECTOR, not only those tanks, which come from bundles for 100 euros. :child:

I'd also like to know what the overall plan is behind a seemingly random collectors gem?

 

From memory, the Gem of the Week thing was stopped because you were running out of rare old content to sell (and I expect few were buying them anyway), and they weren't to be repeated.

 

Currently, other servers have the Pz.IIIK on sale, which is new. We get, without any obvious reason at all, the BT-SV silly bundle. Was this thought up by the same person who decided a 60s TD and a post war prototype were good for commemorating Kursk?

For me as a collector/wallet-warrior with too much disposable income and too few girlfriends to make me spend money on cinema or theatre, that could be a very interesting offer.

 

But, alas, there is just nothing to do with that heap of gold. I am not Smaug, so I don't enjoy sitting on mountains on gold that I can't use, and I don't fire gold shells, nor do I rename my crew, retrain it pointlessly or buy a lot of permanent camouflage outfits.

 

If some of the newer premium tanks were in the in-game store, I'd be totally interested. I'd get the BT-SV, and with the gold and the gold I got left, I'd right away buy the 59-Patton, the Mutz, the Kanonenjagdpanzer and the VK 4503 and maybe one or two more. And then I wouldn't have gold left, but I would be fully back in the collector's game, and every new unbundled premium coming out would be a huge temptation, to which I would give in more often then not.

 

But, it's not to be. Still very grateful for unbundled premium tanks, though. :)

Hey guys sure the tank is in focus here but it's actually totally not and just a super generous free gift and it's an insanely good deal if you were already planning on buying that other stuff. Which no one ever is. But still.

 

And with that sales pitch I want an Aufkl. thank you very much.

If you need the gold and 30 days Premium it's not a bad deal. 28,000 gold normally costs you £77.73 plus 30 days premium account for £ 8.34 total £86.07. The package costs £83.84 and you get a free 300 gold garage slot plus a free OP tank worth 1000 gold.

I'm a collector, and not even considering buying it for that price. Even for collectors there's a limit, and this tank is not worth the price and I suspect too many people have a lot more gold than they can spend at the moment since tanks are only put in the store mostly.

I got this bundle ages ago and I still can't spend all this gold... Ingame tank shop is dead. I've used some to extend my premium when it was discounted. But generally, gold is worthless these days.

Why anybody would need all that gold is beyond me and anybody spending that much has more money than sense

 

the only  gem  rare   / op tank i;d consider is the su76I which i really really want, (i know it won't happen, but it doesn't stop me wanting it) but i'd never spend a fraction of that kind of money

My thought exactly, there is really nothing to spend all that gold on anymore since they don't put new premium tanks in the in-game shop.

 

ps: Love the Smaug line :teethhappy:
