Hello,

 

I know that there were some changes long time ago. If you activate a code which has a tank, or complete a mission in game which has a tank reward and you have that tank in garage you won't receive the gold for the tank anymore but instead the credits.

But if you buy from Premium Shop a tank which you still have it in garage, will you still receive the gold or the credits ?

In which situation you will receive the gold and when you will receive the credits for a tank you already have in your garage ?

 

Thanks

AFAIK you always recieve the gold value of the tank if you purchase from the premium shop, if you already have it in your garage. This is also the same for gifts you recieve.

 

Quite why you would do this and not just buy the gold you want is beyond me.

Not entirely true anymore. Some tank packages in the premium store contain small letters that say *If you buy this tank, you will be refunded the sell price in silver* Or the even better one *If you already own this tank, you will only be given the garage slot*  One of our Dingers warned about this on our forums. (Source: only for Dingers) If you like to know more: Join the Dingers! 

 

The package in question was the 180 premium days bundled with the T-28E with F-30, where the small print read:  "Should you already own the T-28E with F-30, you will receive the garage slot only." 

So when you buy tanks/bundles in the future & own the tank already: Check the fine print! Turn the offer upside down & inside out to locate the fine print! Look for possible traps when an offer sounds too good (for WG terms...)

 

As to the why, people often did this to get extra gold when buying certain bundles or good offers. Guess WG doesn't like that.

So only when you buy or receive gifts from premium shop the tanks which you already have, except those small prints, you will receive the price in gold.

Else, bonus codes, rewards ranks in missions or any other method will grant you credits.

The change was first added to prevent code abuse from tankfest etc. Then it was for events rewards you already had. But for most tanks you buy, you should get the full price in gold. Unless as stated above it's mentioned in the deal under it. If not, then yes you should get it. As bundles that have not given gold are not that many. Cowell B did it etc if you already owned it.

And they have reduced the credits you get when you sell a premium vehicle.

On those you buy? No, they should be valued at 50% of the silver value of the price gold as pr the norm. For gift tanks? Well some of them of late have been at 1 silver. Why? no reason was given.
