Hello WG,

 

My apologies if this has already been offered. I believe it should have, but I think it's the perfect time to reconsider this right now. 
I believe that instead of pumping out new premium tanks you should introduce the ability to ADD  a premium status on any  (up to Tier 8) vehicle. It seems like this is the perfect time since you say that premium vehicles will now be on par with regular ones. What is the point of giving new tanks when anyone can choose what they love. This would be good both for WG and the player:

  • WG does not have to spend resources on creating "special" tanks.
  • Players will not cry about premiums being OP as they will be thew same as regular tanks.
  • WG will keep the right to buff/nerf tanks as they see fit since they won't be nerfing/buffing the premium vehicle per se.
  • Players will be able to choose and there won't be the exact similar prem in each game.

I see it as a complete win-win. They were not able to offer this earlier as WG had this stupid idea that prem tanks should be worse. Thank god you came to your senses....

What are your thoughts on this?

It seems is a good idea on paper but WG won't use it because they wouldn't be able to produce new OP premiums then. Remember, WG is hell-bent on making money short term, even if it means braking the game, so anything logical like that is not an option for them.

It would break more then it would fix tbh. As on some tiers. Everyone would pick the same tank, and make popular tanks more popular and more used. Tier 5 would be full of T67 "premiums" etc.

It obviously should be nerfed. Even without my offer. I think this is obvious enough.
I thought averyone will be on board with this. Seems that I don't see things the way others do.

Problem is, if you nerf something people sink money into then they will complain no matter what. 

 

Also, this already exists in Blitz and is known as "Enrichment" and it is a barely used feature because to "Enrich" a tank often costs twice the amount of gold as purchasing a premium tank of the same tier.

There is a huge problem with this though

 

You would only every have one crew for each line

Why would I have an IS3 crew and an IS7 crew for example

Russia is somewhat of a bad example because it has 2 heavy tank lines and hence two tie 10s but you see my point

 

This would actually just make the game even more to pay to win

We had two of those threads last week and the problems of that idea are pretty obvious.

 

Always use the search-function.

I Think they should add it. because then you can make some more money with your favorite tank. most of the premium tanks that are now in the game are not that good, like the 112 and IS-6 175 pen WHY!
