So, FINALLY!!!!  WG comes out with credit boosters in their premium shop.

When u break down the bundle into individual items, it actually is a nice little pack.

30 days premium account = 9.95 Euro.

1000 gold = 4.25 Euro

= 14.20 Euro.

Which means the 10 Two hour 50% Credit boosters cost 0.8 Euro, or 8 Euro Cents per unit.

 

NICE.

 

Next step is to actually unbundle the prem account time and/or gold, and sell the boosters only.

Personally won't buy them seem to have a lot from Xmas giveaway and various ' missions' but can see that some can be useful.

The one I tend to use, when I remember about them, is the X2 crew skill boosters.

Decided, a whiles back, to see how many skills I can achieve on 1 tank(UDES). Up to just starting on 6th skill so find these boosters useful for this. Yes sad I know but curious as to how many I can accumulate.

Nice thanks OP, wouldn't have seen them if you hadn't posted. And I actually needed some prem account as well.

 

Makes tier 8 credit grinding more bearable when you are making like 100k profit a game. Plus I have lots of credits needed, need to buy back M48 Patton, buy the Conway and buy back the FV215B 183 ready for when it gets replaced.

Yep, just picked one up. Good way to make millions of credits. The rest of the package is just a bonus.

 

Might save mine for TB as that's a good credit grind.

​No need to nag the Clan commander or XO to activate MB's.

And yes, a competent + player will earn 100K silver quite easily with a 50% boost and a Skorp/Defender/Patriot/Liberte/Lowe

 

Edit: o wait, I am the clan commander.  I gonna get nagged.

I wonder why WG didn't publicise these credit boosters more.

seriously.

I make it a habit to browse the shop with my morning coffee.  This is due to missing out on the SU76I.  Once in a while, you find a little gem.  Like the Veterans bundle.

It was a good spot.  Worth watching the World of Warplanes shop as well - Gold + Premium is shared with WoT and they sometimes get better specials - occasionally very much better discounts.

​Now that's a plan.  4 clicks instead of 3.  I am lazy, but that is doable.

You realise that .8 would be 80 not 8?

Hmm. Doing the september missions currently, mainly for the credit boosters. With a value of 1.20 euro for 15 units I'm a bit sad how little my effort is actually worth :amazed:

If 10 units cost 0,8€, it will be 0,08€ per unit.

This offer was announced as a preparation for Ranked Battles:
https://worldoftanks...season/#premium
on the bottom of the page. It ends tomorrow.

 

They are trying to lower tier X in randoms, while pushing you to play more premiums VIII.
Fixing the MM without touching it...
Someone said on WG HQ, "and why not make some money with this fix?". "Good idea." said Schill.
Nice offer.

That's probably scary close to what actually happened.  :)

Yeah my bad, missed the x10


In GBP its


8.52+3.63=12.15 vs 12.82 for the bundle


A good buy for people who cant afford annual premium time or larger amounts of gold but a dreadful buy for everyone else

But to be fair, comparing it to the individual items isn't a good comparison, the basic needs bundle is 1000 gold and 30 days too, so that is really what its competing with directly which is £11.54 rather than £12.15 if priced separately

I'm kind of curious who these small packs appeal to and how often someone would buy a pack with 30 days of premium time in a year tbh


Does anyone run premium time almost constantly but purchase it in 30 day blocks? If so is if for flexibility due to having months where you barely have time to play or because of limited and fixed income making the annual bundles untenable?

At the moment I think this pack is the only way to buy credit boosters.
