So Trade-In is available right now, I'll probably ditch my CDC for a Chinese TD. Also IS-5 seems like a good option, it's worth 6k gold.

Whatcha gonna get?

Hmm I also have a CDC Rotting in the garage. Couple of other options in there too come to think of it. 


Not sure though, bit reluctant to spend any more money on the game. Up coming life changes will mean considerably less playing time. Shame really as I'm enjoying working up a few new lines (for me) at the moment.

Hmm I already traded the Jagdtiger 88 for STA-2 but for some reason my win rate with it is 33% so I stopped playing it, maybe it's time to sell this one for a Mutz. (let's just say I don't buy premium vehicles for crew training).

Why sell / trade in your old premiums? If they get buffed in the future, you cannot recover them. All you do is pay a lot for a new premium tank (the "discount" is a lie).

 

You are better off waiting for discounts to that specific premium tanks and that way you can get a new premium and keep the old one as well.

Because this is how WG tries to reduce the number of "Object xxxs". Now players are struggling to recognize all of them by the names/numbers.

I have never tried the Dicker, but Strv M/42-57 is a really nice tank, I like it. It can also make some nice amount of silver. And there is a rumour that high tier Swedish mediums will come, so it could be a training machine as well for the future.

i'm not playing tier 6 for credits...i have a crap ton of tier 8s for that...the only thing i hate about it is the same turret as on french lts...6 degrees of gun depression...when the entire swedish tech tree gets 10+...and 12 degrees of elevation...i'm grinding the amx 12t now and that elevation sometimes kills me...i'm still stuck choosing between the skoda t40...want to start the tvp line...or the swedish autoloaders...i like autoloaders...but have no patience to get up the tiers...but the tvp is sooooo good...hard choice.

Because the trade-in option has only ever been available on tanks you can buy from the tech tree with gold.

 

undutchable makes a good point about whether it's worth doing, however. I've been thinking about trading in my FCM but the thought that it might be buffed in the future makes me hesitate. I've said in the past that I'd be prepared to trade in my Defender but while I'd get a new tier 8 premium for half-price, I've still paid for the thing in the first place so I'm effectively paying around 1.5x the value of the new tank. Waiting for a discount means paying 0.85x the value (15% discount is usual for tier 8 premiums) and having two premiums in the garage. Although that means paying 1.85x the value and keeping a tank that I never play. :unsure:

Time to ditch that Heavy Tank No. VI, I will never set my foot in any of those jap heavy abominations so I have no use of it whatsoever. Did not pay anything for it either so it is a win-win.

I'm keeping the DIcker in prep for the next set of missions. It's alpha to Hp ratio makes it perfect for those "do x5 your Hp in damage" missions and it's lower tiered enough to be sure of a pleasant amount of yolo scrubs.

 

Thinking what sperms I have in my garage I would happily swap my WZ-111 but for what IDK

Now you mentioned the IS-5 might trade that in as well. And the IS-3A. Might get the T-54 mod 1, doesn't that have like 20 p/w now? Anyone has an idea if that tank is worth getting?

Don't trade your IS-5, it might not be the best tank but it's unique and you probably won't be able to get a new one.

 

CDC will also most likely receive a buff relatively soon.

Thing is I dont think some will get buffed at all. There's a pretty big stock of old premiums that WG have just left to rot, basically to encourage you to buy the latest, more up to date one. 

 

The CDC is a case in point. It has needed a buff for quite some time but they chose to upgrade the M4A1 rev instead and ignored the CDC.

This is no longer valid though is it?:

 

"Camouflages, Emblems, and Inscriptions applied on the vehicle that is being traded in will be stored in the Depot. As they are vehicle-bound, you will be able to use them again only if you get the tank again in the future"

Yes the STA1 & 2 are real Win rate %  killers as is the whole Jap med line

14.65hp/t without equipment according to tanks.gg. The armour buffs were welcome and it's got a bit more pen now (190mm vs. the old 183mm IIRC) but it's still a fairly average tier 8 premium medium. I might trade mine in, seeing how I also have a T-44-100 which isn't part of the offer.

14.65 is the old value. Tanks.gg still hasn't automatically changed it. Now with the 760 HP engine it has a p/w of 21.41
