So how often did you spend 40 Euro on a pixel tank anyway?

 

I have not bought a tier 8 in a while simply because none of them have interested me.  The tier 6 and 7 premiums are much better value for money and interesting.

Well I got a Lowe way back when it was 7500 gold.  If the current tier 8 heavies were that price then I might have a few more.  I also got a Type 59 at a discount. 

Had  Super Pershing which I bought at a reduced price and sold back for full gold value. 

T25 Pilot which I managed to reduce the cost of by getting some of the tokens. 

WZ-111 was some kind of bundle which looked quite attractive. 

Panther 88 I bought with in game gold at 30% off,

same with FV4202, just using up some excess gold from bundles.

AMX CDC was also during one of the Xmas sales.

 

That's 7 (minus the S.Pershing since I got my money back on that) in 7 years.  You've got 10 (you think) in less than half that time.

 

Of the currently available tier 8 premiums I don't have there's only 2 that look interesting, the Primo Victoria which is overpriced and the Ravioli which I might pick up next time there's a sale on.

Here are the ones I would have otherwise bought: STG Guard, AMX Canon d'Assault and now Primo Victoria. I didn't buy Primo Victoria the first time it was available because at the time I thought WG would buff my FV4202 so I didn't feel the need. I am not complaining, though. I have used the 300 euros on other needfull things, like alcohol, booze, whisky and beer.

I haven't bought a premium for ages and will not buy one now. Any company that doesn't listen to customers and has really poor customer service is doomed to fail, so it'd be a total waste of money.

Bought the lorry 40t.. instant buyers remorse due to crappy MM.  Cant even get my self to play the prem tanks that I allready have. And I got the amx 13-105 unlocked but the tought of having to play tier 8 makes me puke, so doubt I'll get enough credits in time to buy it while its on sale.

yup i am not buying them mostly bc of that. Also some of them are simply total broken so buying them you simply ruin. So no point to blame it after that. I think my last t8 was on last new year. Not going to buy any more until they fix mm. But to be honest dont think this mm can be fixed.. Anyway still have more then enough of them to earn some creds.

T8: T26E5 (cuz I am on US tech tree so credits & crews), Primo (bought it first round and actually enjoy playing it), T-34-3 (boy, what a bad buy that was...)

 

Other premiums I own are mainly T6 with some T5s & 7s in there as fun-to-own (Tog II!) or crew trainers, and cuz I still have a lot the learn about the game...

Stopped buying prem tenks because of the devaluation of the same tanks.

(OP prem tanks)

And of course, WG's lack of truth, honesty and refusal of improving their comms.

I haven't played this account for a while, stopped after the new MM came out and screwed up T8,  haven't brought a T8 Prem for 8 / 9 months and wont buy another. You must be some sort of weirdo to want to pay real money for a tank and play the current T8 MM

 

I'm quite happy dicking around on an alt account in t5/6/7,

and who wouldnt buy them anymore because their arent as OP as defender chrsyler liberte patriot and co anymore ?

or who would say im not buying anymore because i got enough ? 

IS 6

SP

Wz 111 (2x)

T25 Pilot

T44-100

there were quite a few tanks you could obtian by playing

with the changes in the techtree you could add

T34

and the FV4202 to the premiums without paying list

 

and then there are the special ones like T95E2

 

so do i need to buy new premium tanks just for the purpose of earning money ?

 

im boycotting wg more than most of the persons coming here to start a boycott   but not for any deeper reason just because i feel like "i dont need it"

sure my average exp might be lower than others by 200-300 points

sure i wont earn as much crds/exp as others do

sure a grind would take longer

but so what im not bothered by it

i hardly ever got the feeling i must have this tanks rather yesterday than today

​You are not boycotting WG you're just exploiting them. Boycotting would be to uninstall and never come back until they meet your demands.

I've never bought any tier VIII Premium tank.

 

If I need credits, I play with my tier V tanks...

I stopped buying any prem tank simply because I have (more than) enough now.

Yes I know I spent way too much on this game but been enjoying it since I started
(still do most times)

I often bought for close to 200€ a month from the premium shop for my son and I.

I completely stopped buying tanks since the MM overhaul and only buy premium time and some gold to retrain crews, the bare minimum.

 

It seems server population has decreased since then too, according to some people posting graphs here.
