Is one the GF version and one the non-GF version? Recovery gave you back the GF version which you had originally owned at an earlier point (or you cannot remember because you bought the account on ebay?), and you bought the non-GF version that was on sale for cash?

 

I have two, but I fully intended to do it as I like training up my French tier VIII and X crews.

and your first thought was to come on the forums and tell the world you have got a free tank that WG obviously will now know about... loose lips and all that fella.

If you rebought it, how was it free?

He rebought it with credits, not gold. So basically what he's saying is that he got two premium tanks but only paid gold for one of them.

Ah ok. Did not know it used credits.

Interesting, it's almost as if you found a bug. Did you report it, or planning to?

Probably just a feature of the way they implemented the swap.

 

It does seem slightly dishonest though and I certainly wouldn't be telling the world about it.

The right thing would be WG removing the GF version completely from my garage

That's why you should report it as a bug. Worst case scenario the swap is done correctly, best case they say it's ok for you to keep it.

My GF wasn't available for recovery, not that I would have checked immediately on logging in after receiving the email confirmation of the swap because getting a second tank that way would be against the rules and the spirit of the exchange.

Good for you.

However, flapping your chops about getting one over on WG isn't exactly a smart move.

For a second, I though you meant an actual GF.

I think this post from the OP deserves a bit more attention. :)

Sorry, your GF won't be normal unless you dump her.

 

As for the 13 57GF, follow the instructions given in this link:

https://eu.wargaming...t/help/116/133/

 

(Oh, and don't play the tank after you sent the ticket.)
