Why WG, don't implement a system, where you can try, for free, the premium tanks in the tech trees? 

 

Before blocking them, we should be able to try 2-3 times a tank (in case you get 1 shoted or you didnt had the chance of seeing the tank potential).

 

Is this a bad idea?

If they did that they wouldn't sell half as much.

Okay since forever they have public tests of upcoming patches where you can use the tanks that you haven't got in your main account.

How about leasing ? You loan tank, pay gold per day which is substracted from total amount once you decide to buy it, or you loan until you finally own it. Or terminate loan if you decide to drop it.

Public test = GOLD SHELLS all the time...not so precise

That's only for premiums available from the tech trees. You can't test a Skorpion G, for example.

 

The second problem is stated above, the test server is full of kids playing tier 10 tanks with full gold load-outs so it's hard to tell if you're going to like a tank for regular random battles.

Interestingly, War Thunder has "always" had the test drive feature, basically an open field and some AFK tanks and planes to shoot. I think it encourages sales, though WT leans more towards the Defender-approach to premiums than 'worse than tech tree tanks'. Sometimes, at least. I think WT's premium M46 got a fancy HEAT shell and lower 'tier rating' than the tech tree one at launch. Fun stuff.

If they wanted to implement something like this it would have to be business as usual regarding equipment / consumables and ammunition but you get no XP, Crew XP or Credits after the match.

I'd like to see that but you've got to wonder how many CDCs they'd have sold if players discovered how fragile the bloody thing is before buying one.

I still get notifications when he replies to me.  I just don't see them.

 

Seems he misses me.

You've named me twice in this thread - you're doing a terrible job of ignoring me. It's almost as bad as when you fail to build an argument and resort to making stuff up instead.

 

:D

Everybody knows, nobody cares. Seriously - if you want to ignore me, ignore me. Keep naming me and I'll reply because I'm polite like that. And yes, I only quoted the halfwit here so he'd get another notification. He'll post that same message again now to show me how little he thinks of my messages. Honestly, it's like dealing with a child throwing a huffy tantrum who has to tell you they're angry because they're just so darned cute.
