Yet again WG are charging us full price for tanks we already own just because they have a different paint job or in this case no paint job,

i bought the original T26E5 Patriot,

now they want to charge me full price £31.42 for the T26E5, 

its the exact same tank without the paint job and they want me to pay full price,

you can paint your tank for 225 gold and 500 gold only costs £1.97.

It's a total disgrace that when we already own the T26E5 Patriot, if we want the T26E5 without the Patriot paint job we have to pay full price when a paint job ingame costs less than £0.93p.

When you apply camo to the non Patriot version it will actually have a slightly better camo value than the pre painted version.

So if you think it's fair you can't actually vote at all then. This is poor even by the poor standards of polls on the forums.

Few months ago WG was exchanging Patriots for unpainted T26E5 for free. You missed your chance.

You get 2 different tanks or just one?

 

Double xp and crew training potential if you get 2, and double chance of extra credits since you can run more matchs without waiting for it to finish.

Exactly this. I did the same with my Patriot. Its now a normal T26E5 without 'Trump' skin.

Yes, but prepainted version has higher maximum camo. When you have full camo crew, Patriot and regular T26E5 with camo paint will have same camo, after you start adding BiA, Vents or food, Patriot starts being better.

 

Yeah, not much of an advantage in case of HT, but for example Black Bulldog GF is better than ordinary Black Bulldog.

It is indeed unfair, fancy a games company FORCING players to buy tanks they already have. Shame on you WG for thinking your players are stupid.

P.S. You poll is no good, as q2 needs to be answered so if q1 is Fair then you cant answer q2.

I thought after the black tank backlash this became an ongoing thing where players got a 50% discount for buying a different skinned (or plain) version of the same tank they already owned


That was a "surprisingly ethical" reaction from WG considering that its WG after all. So I am not at all surprised that once the dust settled they stopped doing it, WG being WG and all......


I had thought about getting the plain version of the patriot, but at full price theres no chance

The least they could've done is dress up in some skin-tight bright red latex outfit first. :sceptic:

That makes sense I guess. Not that many would train camo for their heavies though..

Sure, but as I said this principle applies to all prepainted tanks, including clowns, blacks and GFs. Their special camo is treated as intrinsic tank camo and increased by crew skill.

I suggest you go and get your eyes tested, or learn to read one or the other,

the very first option in the poll is yes it's fair.

If you think q1 is fair then you don't need to answer q2 do you,

because all q2 is asking is what price you think it should be,

and you already answered that when you said q1 was fair.
