Actually not. If WG would offer the possibility to upgrade ordinary tanks from the tech tree into premiums, then they could simply offer a refund of the premium upgrade each time they'd tweak the stats. It would solve the problem of having OP premiums that can't be nerfed.

 


 

@qpranger: I like the suggestion, and would love to be able to transform my Tiger, Königstiger and Jagdtiger into premiums :great: Although when it comes to the price I'll have to say lower, I think that most premiums are rediculously overprized, most tier 8s cost about the same as an entire AAA game :ohmy:

There have to be boundries to stop this becoming an easier way for dopes to credit farm their way to tier X. Such as you can only turn 2 ordinary tanks into premium tanks. If you wish to turn another tank into a premium you LOSE the money you invested in the other tank.

 

Other than that I shouldn't see why not.

I would have gladly payed to turn my beloved Hellcat into a premium, but this before it was nerfed to the ground. This idea would have been great back then.

In the current meta though, this is nonsense, becouse if you are to pay anyway, there are a lot of premium tanks which are on par or flat out better than the non premiums of the same class and tier, so you simply buy those and that's that.

Example: Would i pay the price of a Skorpion G in order to turn my Borsig into a premium, or would i simply buy the Skorp instead?

I would certainly turn borsig into premium because gun performance of skorpion g is more fake than boobs in cheap porn, and borsig can mount 150mm of fun

I'd have to think long and hard what my favorite tank would be...

 

EDIT Never occurred to me before but that's a peculiar turn of phrase. :amazed:

I can imagine all those JPE100's in 420 blaze it mode. Or premium Type 5's.

Since WG gave away how it can ruin gameplay itself (see T8 MM - most of the tanks that i enjoy belong to T8 - now stop playing all of them and sold some) i wouldn't bother to spend a single penny. Thus not interested.

It would still be a problem and, maybe, ultimately bad for WG. Some players will indeed choose their favourite tanks whether they suck or not, others would choose 'FotM' vehicles. When these vehicles get nerfed, players get a refund and proceed to apply it on the next FotM vehicle. This will make the FotM problem worse,  since the 'best' vehicles are now also premiums (so more people choose them over smth else, increasing their numbers) and whenever there is change a lot of players migrate this premium status, free of charge, to the other new OP toy.

 

Even though there are a few non-premium vehicles that I would like to be made premium, I'm not sure it is that good of an idea.

In principle, yes. I would consider paying for some of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE >55% WR tanks to be Premium if I could. I am not saying that I would do it, but I like the idea.

Well question is kinda badly asked - I'd pay as less as possible for prem:)

But if that tank would have act like premium in all respects, it should have same price. The idea itself is good, I cant see any problem with it. Only that people would whine even more if nerf hit their favourite toy.


 

P.S: idea is already working in WT. And its really good to me.

except in WT that feature only increases xp, not credits. it works because the grind system is different from wot, wouldn't be the same here

I know, i was refering to to general idea of making premium from regular tank. Idea is same, but there are few differences, as you pointed out.
