hi 

i already have t26e5 patriot and today from lootbox i got t26e5, im aware that there is some kind of compensation if you already own that tank, but this is just stupid to have two same tanks, not sure if its inteded from WG side or just bug. already wrote ticket so will see if WG has something to add.

That's not the same tank. One is pre painted, other is not. Game considers them different vehicles.

Now you can make credits twice as fast as the two T26E5 types are the best credits earners in the game.

What problem?

 

You have two very similar tanks.  That's an extra daily for your American heavy crew.

It's good, very good

But not quite as good as the guy that won all the T4 tanks, and sold them because he didn't want them and was a bit surprised when he won them again when he bought some more boxes.

You can submit a ticket to try and get the value in gold, but chances are extremely likely (somewhere slightly over 100%) they will tell you that they are two different tanks.

My biggest regret in this game is not buying both the Defender and the 252U.

For t8 clan wars with tank lock, having both is a bonus.

Same goes for the Patriot and T26E5.  Worse case scenario, you can always use one of them as currency if u need credits at once.  Since it is a non tech tree prem, you can always restore it.

Sell it, buy what you need, then grind the 2.5 mil and restore it at your leisure, and so on.

Not very similar, SAME tank who owns lor, and got lor got compensated with gold, and me doubled with SAME tank, do you think it's fair? I don't think so.  (paintings not make diffrense or  would you buy it another 30 € just to have another paint on your tank? i don't think so eigther)

[edited]my friend, you can restore 1 time only. 1 that means 1 and if you used it all gone, just like when you die, get it? Still not fair compansation somebody gets 10k gold someone else got a copy paste, it's ridiculous

No one force you to eat, you still does, behind the joke. I hope you don't work in marketing or business, because with this thinking of yours, you would get bankrupt faster than the speed of ligth.

Stupid comparison. One you don't have to do the other one you need to do to survive.

:facepalm:

 

You are aware that your body requires sustainance to survive right? Not eating means you will die.

 

Not buying loot boxes means exactlythat. It will have no effect on your life.

​Um, A smart man once said, if you don't know what you are talking about, you are better off not saying anything.

If you sell a premium tank that is available for gold in the in game shop, like for example a Lowe, then you have a limited amount of time to buy it back for the credits received. Afterthat limited time, you have the option of a 1 time restoration for silver, via customer service.  If you have already used the one time, then you can rebuy it for either gold, or money.

If you sell a premium tank that is not available for gold in the in game shop, like the Patriot, Liberte, T26E5, AMX M4 49, KV5, Jagdtiger 88, KV122, E25, and several others, then you have an indefinite time to rebuy it for silver, and of course having a slot available, or you have to buy a slot when restoring.

 

So, if you have a Patriot and a T26E5, you can sell one when you need credits, and then grind the credits later when you are not stressed for credits, and rebuy it.

There are plenty of people who bought both, same with the black editions.

 

And yes, I would, I was hoping they would release the Lowe black edition so I could have both.

 

If you have a problem having both tanks then sell one for credits and pretend that you just won a load of credits.  Nobody promised you a tier VIII premium.
