In case some of you have missed it, the October sneak peak feature mentions "Upgrade your arsenal":

 

"19–31 October: Do you want something fresh and exciting from the premium arsenal? Take one of your premium vehicles gathering dust in the dark corner of your garage, return in to the store, and get a discount for the new machine!" 

 

I think I will get rid of my Super Pershing, I had one great battle in it and ironically felt I don't want to play it any more. Never again, Weird, I know.

 

I do hope it is a 50/50 deal for another tier 8.

It's kinda crappy if it's only for in-game premiums.

It's a shame they won't be willing to allow people to sell unwanted premium tanks for some kind of token.  These 'tokens' could be added together to buy better discounts on new premiums.  As it is, the deal never seems worth it so I never bother even looking at what I could buy.  Also, sucks that this only seems to be usable for tech-tree premiums and not store premiums.

IIRC last time it was for in-game prems only, you can't trade to a lower tier tank and you basically get 50% of your old vehicle's value in gold as a discount. So tier 8's will still cost a fair bit.

Yea, that's why I didn't use it last time.

I want to get rid of my IS-6 but nothing seems worth it as I have no interest in a 240 alpha medium and even with the trade-in the Lowe is still pretty expensive. Tried the Strv on the test server but that siege mode...

 

I will however ditch the SU-100Y for the Type 64 if I can.

Last time it was a poor deal, and Kozzy's idea of being able to combine tanks would be very sensible. But I've got just about all tech tree Premium tanks so I have little interest in buying anything, again it's a good reason for some sort of token so I could perhaps buy consumables or equipment etc.

Indeed, I was looking forward to trading in my Defender to get the Matilda Black Prince :P

Don't do it, WG have promised to buff the Defender soon so that it can deal with the TVP VTU menace.

I´d get rid of my IS-3A, but the programm will most likely not cover this one. I played this tank quite a lot but now that I know how guns should handle, I cannot bring myself to go back to it. I´d rather grind money in the IS-2.

Well, if I can only choose from among in-game tech tree specimen, I don't know what to exchange my Super Pershing for ...

+1 for multiple trade-ins. I have several tier 8 premiums that I hardly ever play any more but I'm too tight to only take half the gold value for one of them against another.

The Löwe is probably the best tech-tree premium you can get right now. At least one of the best.

I traded in my IS-3A last time because after I got the Defender I saw no reason to play it

last time this happened i traded several T8 tanks i got as missions and a few low tiers so i could buy myself a Revolverize, a Steyr WT and Type 64. I traded the WZ-111, Dicker Max, T28 HTC and Stug IV (is it?). I'm quite satisfied with the exchange to be honest.

That would perhaps be on top of my list. Then I'd just have to figure out what I want to trade in. An image begins to form up in my mind.. I seem to be seeing something like 'T34'.. what ever could that mean?... :amazed:

i must say i quite like this idea. We all have prems we dont like to play since it is either UP either boring to play. On last such event i changed t34 to lowe and it was one of the best moves i have ever done in this game. Sadly we have few big problems about such events. 

1. t8 mm is horrible atm.. it isnt worth to buy any t8 atm even for half price..

2. we really lack new t8 prems in tech tree.. in last like 3 years we got only strv thats is very very situational. So for older players it isnt really what to pick.

3. since t8 mm is dead atm to play t7 is much better idea but again we have only very few t7 prems available in tech tree..

 

All in all idea is good but wg will always find a way to ruin it. Still i might think about getting 4503 for maybe at15a.. but i again i must first look how much it could cost. Somehow atm i dont wanna give any real money for this company:)

It's a nice option for some tanks, but treading carefully might be a good idea. I kept my IS-6 and KV-5 for a reason. Both are somewhat outdated, but recognized as in need of a buff/rebalance (even if it's soonTM). Besides, there are few trades worth doing. Best tech-tree tanks currently are VK4503, Panther/M10 and Löwe. Revalorisé earns a 'maybe'. Second-best T8 premium medium (or medium overall, depending on how much you like the 416) after the Lorraine 40t, but 200/250mm penetration isn't great for what essentially is a support medium.

 

(T-34-3 might also be worth a look post-patch, though T8 PMM tends to be quite harsh with the guns they get.)

Could always hope they'll mess up and let you trade in the T28 HTC again. :D

Dang. I will tempted again for 14 days to trade-in my T-34-3 for a 112.. I could barely resist last time around.. only switched AC 4 experimental for a Strv m 42-57. Very happy with that still.
