Have you ever done it? Regrets? 

 

I got the CDC the other day.

If it looked more generic,

I would have passed on it.

I have but it wasn't the CDC, I bought that because I enjoyed playing it on the test server, it was a huge disappointment on live.

I bought the e25 cos it looked so different, In my very early playing day. It go removed from the shop about 2 weeks after, I didn't realise how good it was till a few 100 games into playing it. 5k + games later in it, I'd say I'm very happy with my purchase.

CDC was one of those for me, really like the tank as well.

Tiger 131 because Tiger.

VK4503 just super sexy, again super cool tank as well.

 

I would also love to buy the AMX49 but unfortunately I am not spending money on the new OP premium tanks because I don't want add to the existing problem. It's been hard to resist the temptation though because it looks almost as sexy as the VK4503.

STRV S1 because it looks like a sexy cheese wedge. Regret buying it? 50/50. when it can do its 1 trick pony sniping its good at it. but its possible a tank that should never have been implemented due how inflexable the maps make it, siege mode is cripple mode.

I Aced my beloved TOG II today, once again.

 

Even though I seldomly play it, and I should be shamed for playing it so little, I will never regret getting the TOG.

Got the Turán last year in-part because of the looks.

No regrets because it is a solid tank as well.

AMX 13 57 - "WG logo on this? Hm... Nah I'll just get it later. Maybe they'll remove it by then"

leFH18B2 - "Premium Arta? WTH is his thing? Looks bad and that makes it look nice... But I'll buy it later as I don't need French stuff"

 

And now they're OP, which means they'll be sold as much as the E 25 from now on. Which is kind of a turn off. I don't wanna be seen as getting seal clubs.

Unfortunately it was mentioned in a Q&A that WG won't be selling the AMX 13 57 anymore (we all know how much these promises mean of course, *cough* mutant-6 *cough*) but I would pick one up immediately.

I liked my AMX 13 90 at tier VIII, and so I bought the AMX 13 57GF as a crew trainer, even though it was fricking ugly with the GF branding. Before patch 9.18 the AMX 13 57GF was very lacklustre, but oh my godness what a buff it had with the new MM, now rather entertaining to play (albeit still garish).

jesus I sincerely hope not.  just why would you spend real money on "looks" with nothing tangible to show for it?

 

however I'm conscious I'm in the minority and my ideas might be a little victorian.

The only reason i got all my premium tanks, is if they were used in ww2 and / or they looked cool / looked fun to play

 

i was a bit disappointed with chi-nu-kai / jt 88 mobility and su85I gun handling, but don't regret any purchase

Just remembered something...

 

I bought the SU-122-44 twice man. Collossal and stupid waste of money.

 

The first time I found out about how horrible the accuracy was (can hit a 59-16 moving while on the move and send the turret to Earth's Lower Orbit but fully aimed shots kiss the ground)

The second time? I forgot about the first.

 

And the AT-15A. Don't regret buying it. I regret selling it. But I can't stand slow vehicles.
