Wow, I never looked at the gold prices of tanks.... But that's pretty special.

Well you could look at the T-34-3 vs any other tier 8 med. As that as pricey as the T34 almost due to the gun more or less. 

 

Though when you look at some of the others here. Like the IS-3A vs the Defender. It doesn't make much sense vs others there again.

Don't forget the KV-2® and it's ridiculous price compared to other tier 6 tanks. :angry:

Almost like the gold value, especially for tanks destined as cash-only items, is basically arbitrary.

 

The IS-2 vs. VK4503 is easy to explain, however, provided that it does in fact have T8-equivalent credit earning.

You're a good artist.

 

I knew Squidwarts should've killed that guy and not Patrick Star (in the anime ofc).

I never really look at much of the prices, in my opinion dropping 30+ bucks on a pixel tonk that can be taken away from me the moment someone decides to shut down the servers is a bit steep. I think premium time and enjoy the other tanks in the game is a more worthwhile cash-hole than a single tank that is bound to be powercrept into mediocrity.


That's why I'm geniunly surprised at the seemingly random pricing.

So...my T34 must be much better than defender?

Why is one of the worst tier 8 than?

The only one that looks strange to me is Defender having a lower value than IS-3A.

Guard is better than Ravioli having a better gun in a low profile platform.

T-34 as a good gun compared to Paytriot 90mm shooting APCR.

And lastly, as Aikl said, VK45.03 has tier 8 credit multiplier.

I wonder how they price stuff. as my IS-3A is gathering dust in my garage while my defender actually gets played (now n then) because 1 is good and the other sucks so much balls its not even funny, yet priced higher! ill never understand WG.

good pen, worst acc and aim time, slower reload, much worst frontal armour

Yeah it's rather special indeed but as said the VK4503 makes tier 8 equivalent credits so at least that one makes sense.

 

However, the T34 being almost 2.5K more expensive than the Patriot (a MUCH better tank) is quite laughable.

Did not know this, have we had any official contribution on this?

True, but having better standard pen helps a lot on a premium tank. Less premium ammo shot so more income.

It's somewhere in the patch notes, but you can see it in my review as well which was made after that credit buff:

Except 10€ of the cost of that tank is the skin, take that away and it is quite reasonable.
