I made a ticket (#2013466) asking that why the M4A2E4 Sherman (Tier V American premium medium tank) isn't available for gold or even € purchase? It is there in the techtree of the Common Test servers for several patches. They answered that it was a beta gift only and isn't available to get.

 

"Please note that the Tank is not available in the EU Store and will not be since it was only for preorder payments and will not re-enter the shop according to our current details."

 

Ahha, I see, it was so preorder, that SEA server had an own mission marathon for this tank! Plus on the RU server this is also the case, and they can purchase it continouosly for in-game gold despite of this fact! The almighty preorder tank is a regular, in-game vehicle there. Why are SEA and RU server players are better handled than EU server players?
 

They recommended to ask this question here, in an official support ticket, by link.

 

So the question is there. Why are we, the EU players are less? Why WarGaming treat us different?

 

Thanks!

 

BR,

George

iirc, SEA was created after the beta period, so they never got it the same way the other servers did, thus they had a mission for it. And RU never had this tank as a beta reward. Thus there it's as you said, a normal premium.

 

NA and EU were the only servers that had this as a beta reward. RU got the KV-220 B. And thus why they have not had a 220 mission... like we had.

Normally people whinge because WG go back on their promises by selling tanks that they had previously said that they would never sell again (E.g. M6 Mutant).

 

Seems that people are also going to complain when they stick to their promises to not sell a tank again as well.

Because we earned it in beta and those on the SEA server didn't.

The Russian beta testers were given a special "beta test" version of the KV-220 for their participation in the testing, not the M4A2E4, so they were free to sell the E4 on the Russian server since they made no such promises of exclusivity for it there.

 

EU beta testers were told that they would be granted exclusive access to this E4 Sherman and they've actually stuck to their word so far.

It is okay with the KV-220 beta test, but the regular KV-220 is a common tank there. So they somehow get both. Why not the same here in EU? Beta testers have Beta Test M4A2E4 Sherman, other players have access to regular ones. We do not have the little Sherman as they have it...

 

The same as on the RU server with the KV-220...

No.. only beta testers got both, and that's the key part. As the B remains an equally exclusive tank as the M4A2E4 is here. It's a Beta reward still. Something to show how long you have been around. No reason to ruin that for the few that still has it just because you want it to? Just like the M3 Light is equally pointless now. As that was also a sign that you were an old player, as that was the old tutorial reward they had in 2012. That they later sold in the store a few times. So now it means nothing.

 

They could sell a different version ofc with a different name. But the current M4A2E4.. will remain as is... only for beta players.

Because RU players will put up with such shenanigans.

So finally they don't treat EU and RU players equally. RU players have way more possibilities.

 

– KV-220-2 Beta Test is a beta tester reward, and very rare on both servers.

– KV-220-2 is a common tank on both servers, and despite that EU had mission for it, RU had much more possibilities to purchase it in the gift shop.

– M4A2E4 Sherman is very rare on EU, but a common everyday tank on RU. It is even available for in-game gold in the tech tree.

 

I don't know any other situation as any tank is frequent and still everyday purchasable on the EU server, and a you-can-never-got-it-rarity one on the RU server. I may be wrong OFC, but feel free to correct me in this case.

 

Sum of summarum: they don't treat RU and EU players equally.

I don't remember them ever saying that they wouldn't sell the tank.

it wasn't a preorder, they gave the M4A2E4 to all the players who had a certain amount of battles in the beta test phase. reminds me I have to send yet another ticket to get mine back

It was 1k battles.

 

Also, I'm not sure why OP is even mad about "RU has beta sherman, we dont, servers arent equal reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee". I can tell you a bad platform with the M3 Lee gun is nothing special.

They claim (so this is an official statement) in the ticket that they consider all players equal. Then do it, not just say the empty and meaningless words.

The REAL reason I think is to dont affect sales on other high tier american premium medium tanks (Fury, Thunderbolt, Super Pershing, Patton KR etc).
Just my opinion!
