Have you ever done so? If yes, then why?

And did rebuying it pay off, no pun intended? 

I am looking to rebuy Excelsior.

Bought it very early on, did not do well, got rid.

But now I am older and slightly wiser statwise. 

I feel I could make it work now, a fun challenge.

I bought and sold a few but I did get  the 1 time account via support get back offer some months back for the wz 111 mission tank which i then traded in for the rev.

 

this probably doesnt count.. so no.. I have not paid for a tank. sold it then bought it back.

 

also excelsior is a very good pseudo medium... a bad heavy... if you want to fight heavies you need to press 2 and that sucks.

I love the Excelsior, it has preferential MM, you can pen even with AP rounds most of the time, even on T6, unless you are facing a T-150 or something with good overall armour.

Altough it's frustratingly innacurate, gotta get close.

 

I tried it twice, but I can't :(

Ragesold my T1E6 along with my Soviet M3 Light a long time ago, when everyone was driving KV-1s with the 122mm and I remember rage posting something about nerfing it and arguing with people who defended it like the statpad piňata it was... Then I came back when WG split it.

Never sold a premium tank. Silver I get for it I can earn...  Lots of free slots fell into my lap.

Only ever sold one. The M3 light "old tutorial reward". That I now have again. Never sold anything else, not even the Pz II D.

How'd you get it back? I sold mine in 2014 and was told I couldn't get it back.

Sold mine in 2012, got it back in 2013 before the new rules. I more or less just asked support. And they told me that this was my one time use of it and I could get it back no issues. As then there was no sell warning etc, or a 6 month min rule. Thus no questions asked.

I've ragesold a lot of premiums but most times I sell a premium, it's because I get bored of them and will never play them again. I do the same with normal tanks. I don't keep tanks that I don't have fun playing. 

 

IIRC with the new rules you can't get back something that you sold 3+ months ago. I might be wrong with that number but I'm 99.99% sure you can't buy something back you sold over a year ago.

If only WG would follow tje US examble here. Aslong as youve played a premium tank on your account, and can prove it. You should be able to get it back.

 

That timelimit is silly af.

Well damn, I have tried the same and was told it's only 72 hours, weird, because I was trying to get my T1E6 back...

I think you should be able to get the tank back anytime, if you have stats in it to prove you had it.

I remember selling my SU-85i back in 2015. Didn't know I can earn decent credits in the tank so I sold it because I was a dumbass back then.

If only I can bring it back... :c

I have ragesold one premium tank. It was right after the closed beta ended. Every CB tester who played 1000 battles, received the tier 5 "Beta Sherman" as a gift.

Back then, the gun felt anemic, which it kinda is, and I grew frustrated over the tank. I thought it would be more worth just to sell the tank and get some credits, than to keep it and not playing it.

 

When WG gave the offer to redeem one premium tank, I gladly paid the credits needed in order to get the tank back.

 

Even now, I rarely play the tank - but it is somewhat rare-ish so I will not be silly and sell it ever again.

I don't understand how it is actually possible to sell(for credits) something that costed cash out of rage; I guess people nowadays have no respect for their (hard-earned....?) money

Rage sold the T34, got it back through support, traded it in when got the chance. No regretti!

As for selling premium tanks, I did it and will do that again. If I get a tank after watching reviews, stats and feel that it suits me but end up hating it... well, it won't be missed and the credits can be put to use instead. It's not like I'm "saving for rainy days" in the form of premium tanks.
However, after today's QA with Evily, I'd have to say that I'll be more hesitant to selling a premium tank until next year as this period will be all 'bout balancing tanks (including PMM ones) so it might get interesting as refunding is not out of the question. https://thedailyboun...h-anton-pankov/

As to buying a premium tank, selling it and then buying it again, that's pretty bad bussiness practice as you actually buy two tanks (money wise) but get only one.

The only premium sold was beta gift sheman, then i got it back via support, played one battle with it and almost rage sold it again :)

 

Back in time excelsior was really great (with skill ammo :hiding:).

Been on the brink of rage selling the T28 HTC a few times, now it's just waiting for trade in to come back.

I did sell the Churchill III once, wasn't really rage but tank just felt crap compared to KV-1. Brought back on 50% sale, been decent fun and a great crew trainer.

I sell loads, if short of silver and buy them back when I have more creds, they just go into store nowdays and can be bought back.

Sold at least half a dozen. Bought the  Su 122-44 twice and sold it again ( hated the accuracy). Either I can't get them to work for me or find them boring . If they don't make me smile then they are gone  . I more regret not buying certain tanks  , AMX 13-57 GF in particular
