Bundles, bundles everywhere :facepalm:

After having a slight interest in this vehicle it was promptly ended, just why WG?

Gj! Eu marketing department, yet again! NA - You can buy the tank outside a bundle, EU - worthless bundles..

And here I was thinking of spending some money.... guess not.... Might give them to someone that actually treats their customers  nicely!

I'm waiting for this tank for ages now, but it comes with 5k gold, which i don't need.

Still have over 30k lying around and since WG refuses to transfer it to my WoWS account - something which is possible on the RU server - i say no thanks.

The tank alone would have been an insta-buy, sadly WG just has to inflate the price on these rare tanks.

Well, the FV 201 is rare. I remember when there was this huge marathon, and I just didnt want to super grind in that small window. But, the tank is crap. I can not imagine, why the heck 40 euro bundle. Even if it woud be 25 Euros, it still woud be a weak seller. It is no way a Caernarvon at tier7. It needs buffs.

I don't think EU had a Marathon for the FV201, or it ever being available without a bundle.

If there was a second British heavy line... *Cough*Cheftain*Cough* it maybe of interest.

I would of got this if it came with a month premium as that is low and a nice tank to go along with it would of been nice but i think id save it this time round and get premium time with some gold attached instead

Actually the tank shouldn't be that rare on the US, RU, or Asian server, they were given a mission to earn it for free. (the grind was a bit excessive, but I am sure a lot of players would have done it).

So for now they want to keep this a "Gem" item, perhaps it will appear at some point as a tank we can earn - but I wouldn't hold out much hope as there are other tanks they can pick IF they pick any at all.

bundle bundle bundle .... wg.eu ... don't u know we dislike those with a vengeance when you try to show them up our places without sun!?

 

I really like the game,... but those of you in WG.EU responisble for the Q"#&!#¤&#&(¤/) clown tank cammo failure and these bundles .... not so much ...

 

Let me introduce a possible name for offers like this: "Here, a new magnificent B.O.H.I.C.A bundle!"

 

It's also know as the "bend over, here it comes again" rule :/

.....and I became now a my own creation, a legendary  WG baboon.http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/613667-collectors-gem-of-the-week-t-28e-with-f30/page__pid__13808614#entry13808614

:facepalm:

 

Because I bought this bundle ,yes I did, I made a sin, but  its very rare tank and very rare British haevy  tank, and a British tank.

 

Don't you dare WG to release any more Birtish premiums , because this is the only thing I can not resist. And don't you dare to buff this tank and other British haevy tanks because it will be evil bribe to unconditionally  love you WG.

 

Damn.

Well, i have to tell myself to stay away from this "offer", despite my inner voice yelling at me to buy that tank.

After all, it's one of the tanks i want to buy for ages.

 

I have to remember why i cut my budget for WoT in the first place (gold transfer possible only on RU? Thx WG, not appreciated - at all) and moved my wallet over to MWO where i spend 200 bucks on mech bundles which did not have useless ingame currency and other useless $hit to inflate the price.

PGI knows how to bundle, WG fails every.single.time.

I think I bought mine for that price. The US had a marathon to get the tank and when they put it on sale I figured I didn't want to invest the time to complete the marathon as it required playing the rental vehicle a lot. I haven't played it a lot. If you are a collector, you probably already have it. In the other case, get a Liberté or Skorpion instead.

A British HT trainer for 40 euros? Okay. I would advice to get an Excelsior for a lil bit of gold instead. That's cheap fun.  :child:
