... I have them coming out my a*s now, 500+ of the things which I have never actively attempted to acquire. I rarely play WoT for 2 hours at a stretch so theres not much point in me activating most of them. Either let me sell them or you may as well start donating mine to a virtual tank charity of my choice. Much obliged. 

 

Or ... let me gift them to players who don't act like a*shats in random games.

"Permission to speak, sir?" "Sir, I should like to volunteer to be the one to be the virtual tank charity of your choice".

 

I like PRs. I try to help teams in random games.

 

OTOH IIWY I'd just activate them (three types) and ho hum, of ou don't play for two hours, well since you have them coming out of your ears,you won't miss them.

Even if you only play one game , you might as well activate them. No harm done if you have 500 of them.

I'd love to be able to gift them to players I thought had done well. Probably abuseable in some way so make it that you could only gift 1 per player to players in the last game.

I hate the thought of wasting stuff so if I activated a PR I'd want to make use of it all. I've used some of the ones that had 1 hour durations.

 

It could be a form of OCD, pity me.

If you collect 1,000 personal reserves, you will get the Edelweiss tank.

How is that significantly any different by 'wasting' them by never bothering to get any benefit from having them?

You can potentially make use of the full duration of ones that haven't been activated yet. Ones that are only half used are always half used.

It's not wasted if it didn't cost you anything. Just use it and stop playing when you don't feel like it. I don't have that many "free reserves" but i just stop playing when i start raging. Makes no sense forcing yourself to play only because you don't want to waste 50 mins. of reserves. And obviously not spending them seems to burden you a lot more.

Dingles is phrasing this in the most friendly and polite way possible. Stop making up problems, the games has enough real ones. More importantly, stop trying to make it so other people can't earn PRs because you don't have the common sense to use the ones you've gotten. Even Mr Scrooge was only looking out for himself. Be less of an arsehole in general, I guess is my point.

Is it because the gift horse spits?

Why can't I sell them like other consumables?

That's true. I'd like to be able to share stuff with friends but I think WG has done us good for denying us the chance. The last thing we want is a Black Market.

Already have enough of that with people selling their  accounts on ebay despite it being clearly forbidden in the EULA.

Wouldnt really be a black market if the only way you could gift them was 1 per non platoon mate to players in the last game you played. It's be like 'well played fella' currency.
