How about if we could buy rental versions of any premium tank in the store ?

Pay a fraction of the full price (say 2%-8%) and play it for 1 - 7 days.

That way we might get to try out tanks we might otherwise never consider worth buying.

             - we might find tanks we like or we might find we don`t like tanks we thought are good.

It seems like a good idea, but WoT already implemented Premium tank rentals as rewards some time ago. After trying the JT 8.8cm, I know that I would NEVER, EVER, E V E R, buy that TD. I wasn't keen on the TOG II either.

 

I can't recall any others, but at least WoT have demonstrated that they have considered it.

Well was quite a while ago, but if I'm not mistaken you can take most of them out on a test run on the test server and as PowJay mentioned above, making it any easier than now to test drive the tanks would most likely hurt sales for WG, something they don't like that much.

You would rather have a low tier player buy a permanent premium (thinking its the tank not his skill the problem) or have them buy it for one day and see they dont belong there yet ?

Well that don't happen, people play the tanks they like regardless of skills, heck wasn't that long ago I came across an E75 player with 50k battles that drove backwards to protect his frontal armor.

Trying premiums (and T10s) are probably half the reason why people even play the test server, in the end important to figuring out bugs and "balancing" (:P)

Or end up not buying tanks you were considering buying.

Which scenario do you think WG prefers?

WG would make the money from trials:

 50 ppl x 2% 1day trial = 100%

renting is always more profitale than sale >:)

Why should WG rent out tanks as long as enough people on EU buy every craptank WG can make up in less than 5 minutes (Black Editions)?

And it's not like WG hasn't experimented with this: https://thedailyboun...um-tank-rental/
