Afternoon all,

 

I'm thinking of buying a second Cromwell B for the BIA crew. I've never bought the same premium twice before, but I understand that I'll be refunded in gold. I'd like to know precisely how much gold though. Can anyone tell me please? (with references).

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Geoff

ps should take the opportunity to have the standard moan about the dearth of crew-retraining discounts. When I get home later I'll have 5 shiny new tanks without crews. :(

It's worth 3450 gold.

Muchas gracias.

 

So, according to my maths, as I normally buy gold in deals of around 14,000 for £44-ish (£44.80 using prem shop calculator), then my gold price is around 32p per 100 gold. As Brom is for sale at £12.29 and I'll get 3450 gold back, at 32p per 100, that's £11.04. So the 0-skill BIA crew will cost £2.25 (which in turn equates to 703 gold) . I guess that's a good deal as buying a new (Brom) crew from scratch would be 500 gold (best case, if you can wait until the next mythical crew retraining disc).

 

Just found a similar thread, but the maths is slightly different. I guess it varies depending on the derived value of gold, number of crew members and precise price point the tenk in question costs.

Didn't they stop giving you gold for premium tanks?

If I'm not mistaken that was only if you won a tank you already owned, previously you won gold but now we just get credits.

Just quickly found this thread as well:

Only if you get those tanks through missions or give-aways.

If you pay real money you generally get gold compensation (based on the current in-game gold value, including discounts). However a few weeks ago they started selling bundles with premium tanks as bonus where you don't get ANY compensation at all (which created a pretty shitstorm as it wasn't listed explicitly in the bundle description initially): https://eu.wargaming.../specials/6799/

 

So now you always need to double-check the actual offer if the tank is actually part of the package or just a bonus.

 

Tanks that you get without paying money (e.g. from missions) are generally compensated with credits, but there are also exceptions (e.g. T8 CW rewards I think)

When buying a tank in the premium shop that you already own, you should get get the value in gold but I think if the tank is discounted in the client as well you will only get gold worth the discounted value.

 

IIRC I used this feature to buy extra BIA crews with Rudy and IS-2 Berlin.

Yeah, I had the higher tier HT's and MT's in mind when doing this.
