...do we get "rare" tanks only in bloated bundles while the other servers get offers like this and and can choose to buy the tank without bloatware? 

 

Speaking about the FV201(A45) here, which was sold on the EU only in a bloated bundle.

I really would like to know the reasoning behind this.

If people keep buying the bloatware then WG will keep selling it.

^  What he said.

As long as bots keep buying tier 8 premium tank bundles they will keep doing it.

Is it not obvious? Cos we are EU, the most wealthy part, and with the highest WTP possible. Milk it as long as it milks

Because EU is the main cashcow for Wargaming.

 

Also, last year they proudly announced they hired someone new to come up with better ways of extracting money from the customers as if that was a good thing (for the customers).

Which tanks do you want to buy?

  1. Money
  2. Because selling them without bundles and stuff would mean they aren't "rare" anymore

Soon after this tank was for sale they changed their policy on selling tanks in  bundles to include a 'basic' bundles which was just the tank+garage slot, I believe?  So, if this tank goes back on sale it should follow the same format, I'm guessing, but who knows with WG...

It's NA, not gonna keep that server alive selling silly bundles to that low population. On EU you can. Simple as that.

'EU' is the short answer.
