I am starting this debate because I would like  to have my garage and my stores clean .Also to be able to get some, if symbolic, return in credits for some features in garage that I do not need .

I have around 100 tanks in garage ,and by now I accumulated over 30 unused  garage slots.I do not see realistic to obtain 30 more tanks, and by the time I obtain new tanks I will accumulate even more garage slots trough missions and rewards just by playing game casualy.Also every new premium tank comes with a garage slot, which makes existing slots unused, and accumulating even more.

I am getting new garage slots every once a while trough mission, and because I have them already to much this actually makes garage slot as reward entirely uninteresting ,( if not repeling!). And that is the case with every player who has to much free garage slots.

It would be nice if we could sell slots for some reasonable ammount of credit. Perhaps ,since garage slot costs 300 gold, which is 120 000 credits, a fair ( round number) sell price will be 50 000 credits.

I think this will add to sense of compleetnes of the game, and in fact make garage slot economy  more dinamic, since players could sell garage slots, that later if they needs them of course obtain by gold or missions. In this case getting another garage slot by reward, will be actually a reward for players  who have many unused garage slots already- which will make rewards more atractive.

When I could copy-and-paste some of the posts from the multiple threads that have been created about this or I could direct you to the pinned WoT Suggestions thread. Which would you prefer?

If you find me there is thread about this subject with  argumentation on my intellectual level, I will agree to be drawn in mediocrity.


What's you opinion ?

Well if you use the search function, it's not hard you know, you'll find loads of opinions in the multiple threads that have been created proposing this.

I fail to see where the win if for WG in this proposal when you get to sell things you got for free ...

 

 

That is the first thing you have to think of when making a proposal to WG to change something. If it doesnt benefit them you might aswell press the delete topic/post button.

My opinion is that it is a valid idea, whether or not it has been raised before. However, there is a suggestions thread on here somewhere, and you should post your idea there.

I dont have many spare slots, and I dont seem to get free ones as often as you, but I can see the value of being able to sell them back to WG in the same way you can equipment or unwanted ammo.

I suspect he want's to know people's thoughts today, not what they were 5 years ago.

Add to this that resurrecting dead threads is generally frowned upon, it is entirely appropriate to start a new thread.

If you don't want to comment because you previously commented on an old thread that's fine, but please don't try to shut down a discussion amongst others.

There is no rule (in this forum or anywhere else in life) that once something has been discussed once, it can't be discussed again.

 

As to the topic ... I can't see any down side to allowing this.  I don't believe the old "WG are money grabbers and they wont allow it because it will harm their revenue" holds any weight.  WG are doing lots of things to keep the player base engaged and this would certainly help that.

 

One thing I find interesting is I have the opposite problem to the OP.  I have 96 tanks and not one single spare slot.  I recently got 1 from the W/E special and 2 from FLs.  I will get 1 more from FL and another from the month long special but I will still be short for the ambitions that I have.  I'd like to buy back the Pz1C, Luchs, Leopard, Hetzer, KV1 to name a few.  I also suspect I'll want to keep the Caernavon and I've recently decided to keep the T-44 (it was my first T8 med and I was sad when I sold it the first time).

 

One other thing I've said many times.  WG are very good at giving rewards that "appear" to be good but in actual fact are a lot less useful than they appear.  The first obvious example I saw of this was for the 5 year anniversary.  Players got 1 slot per full year in the game.  So players with 5 years, and inevitably loads of tanks and loads of spare slot, got given 5 they probably didn't need/want and players like me, who were desperate for slots, got given one. Whoop de do.

You want to be able to sell a garage slot for 50k credits?  I spend more than that in a match derping with a Deathstar!  I think you might be really desperate for credits, in which case you should look for an actual solution.

I have a solution.

Get every tier 1 tank in the game and populate the garage slots for free.

You might even come short - so you can buy more garage slots.

You are welcome.

As in every case, there's an easy to understand reason for that, which is money.  Then players who need the slots the most are the ones who will be more likely to  spend gold to buy them.  It would harm WGs profits to give them slots.  It harms them little to give slots to people who don't need them like myself since we're unlikely to buy any. I had 11 free when I last checked.

my idea is that you should be able to sell them for the 1/2 price that you've got them for.

Well considering I've gotten 35 of the 40 free slots I currently have for free since WG are giving me one here and there rather often of late.... that would give me... nothing. So I might as well keep them :P
