I know it's a stupid thing to be worried about but I've waited pretty much a day and i don't seem to have the AMX 13 57 in my garage, I actually got a reply on my ticket several hours after i sent it but the process hasn't been completed yet, Afaik they swap a load at once so i'm wondering why it hasn't already swapped yet.

If anyone has had a successful swap please tell me below!

When I swapped the Patriot it took several days.

Not worth swapping, there is a real chance that the GF version will never be sold again(I would imagine they would've sold it now if they intended to) and it has a marginal camo advantage if you have a good crew. This also allows you the opportunity to buy two clones of it and queue both of them if you have two crews. As we all know it's just a funny light tank and not OP tank at all, why not double up on the stat padding fun?

I might have considered buying the second version but they bundled it with three thousand gold.  Just greedy and I won't reward that.  Swapping costs me nothing.

I swapped both Patriot and Liberte for their non camo versions. Both took 3-4 days IIRC. Then they just appeared in my garage.

M41 90 regular version has never been sold, but it is in the game files.

 

The gun marks stay with the old tank: If you swap 13 57 GF for 13 57, it's basically a new tank.

I don't believe in tank collecting. 

 

The moment the servers shut down your "collection" is gone.

 

I prefer to have regular camo for now on my amx 13 57gf. Not all players are unicums and not all are equally good at identifying tanks. If my amx looks more like a regular amx I believe I will have a small advantage. A better advantage than marginally better camo. And I am bored with the GF look. It was never pretty, and I gotten used to it, but I would like to personalize the look of the tank.

No no. Not collection value. By having two copies of the tank you can play the GF version while the non-GF version is in battle. When the black tanks were released I would've immediately bought a black KV-5 for this reason because I would've been just happy to spam battles with KV-5. With only one copy I always had to wait for the battle to end or alternatively I had to play something else. Unfortunately the black KV-5 never became a reality but I could see someone having a similar situation with the 13 57.

Only GF for normal version. It is written in the rules.

My 13 57F has disappeared from my garage but the 13 57 has not appeared. Is this what has happened to everyone else, or is the 13 57F still sat there?

 

I have opened two tickets to customer support that are now un-answered into their second day.

 

My ticket numbers are 4558685, 4559751. It might help others to post your ticket numbers and see how far behind they are?

 

I asked someone else in WG via PM and they said that CS might be busy due to 1.0 going live.

 

How hard would it be to have a notification on their website saying "Currently dealing with ticket number XXXXXX"

Mine was swapped in 24 hours. I was impressed with the speed.

I did that on the IS6 and IS6 Black..... not my cleveriest buying decision. You can see the power creep in my stats... my experienced crew in the IS6B fairing far worse than in my original Is6 when they were novices :) WG bastards :P

"Grrr, Support are still dealing with ticket 123456. They've been working on that one all bloody day!"

"Have you pressed F5?"

"I shouldn't need to! I'm raising another ticket to find out what's happened to my previous ticket!"

 

 

I shouldn't mock, I created my request at 10:14pm on Sunday, received confirmation at 00:01 and the plain tank was in my garage at 16:36 on Monday (timestamps from email notifications). Hope you've got it sorted, LRS. :honoring:
