So I was contemplating buying this new T-34 because I'm grinding missions for coal in WoWS right now to but specific slot upgrades.  I won't have time to grind for this tank.

 

You're presented with three options.  Looking at the standard package it says 0 Gold.   lookes good to me...

When you click on the link the offer includes 3,200 Gold

There doesn't appear to be an option to buy the tank alone.

Can't see any reason to give WG money until they cough up some real answers to their PMM balancing idea.

 

And the current 3:5:7 also....sigh!

Well, with the AMX 13 57 and Type62 I understood the logic as a sort of gatekeeping to prevent a huge influx of them on the battlefield having a bad influence on general game play.

 

However, for this piece of trash there is literally no valid reason to artificially inflate the price of the standard bundle.

On a somewhat related topic the Supreme package looks really generous. You basically pay for the 20k gold + 30 days of premium and get the rest for "free".

 

20k gold = 613 sek

30 days premium (+ a Toldi) = 89:95 sek.

Total= 703sek.

Supreme Package= 723.

 

And that is not counting the "extra" gold you can earn by doing the missions. Wonder if WG effed this one up or if its intentional. 

 

Sadly for WG...#walletclosed.

But it lists both 3200 gold and bonus gold for missions. It smells and I'm staying out of it. :P

Even with 3.2k gold this bundle is not worth it.

You get an equivalent of 6.15k gold (3.2k + 2.2k T-34 + 750 camo) for 30 EUR (not counting PR), but for this money you can buy 8.2k gold.

When you want to grind all 50 gold missions with it, you will get 8.2k gold at the end, but that's the amount you can purchase for the same money anytime. And you also get the tank, camos and probably reserves too

The only scenario when it is worth it is when you must have the tank and you can't do 30 missions. Or you need it now instead of after 30 missions. In all other cases you lose, or break even at best.

I would assume you get 3.2k immediately and up to 5k for daily missions. But it is still bad value -see my post above

Nope, the missions can yield up to 5k gold extra IF you buy today and then complete every daily mission, or nothing if you buy on the last day or complete none of the missions, so they can't really charge money for that. The 3200 is a flat bonus on top.

That was to be expected. It's a T5 tank afterall that would cost about 5 Euro alone (well, 10 Euro as they set an inflated goldprice for it similar to the T-44-100).

 

What's "fishy" in this offer is the compensation: Buying early and then playing missions will get you more gold for the mission completions, but no gold if you earn the tank or styles. Buying late will net you gold for the tank and styles IF already earned, but less gold for mission completions. So if you buy at the end of the event because you've missed a few missions you're screwed as you get neither. If you really want the tank and aren't sure if you can complete 30 missions, you get more from buying now rather than waiting until the end.

You actually get two camos (one for the T-34, one for any tank) so that's 1500 gold. Also a 100% crew which accounts for another 800 gold for WG, and the PR of course also have a gold value. So by WG calculations the gold value of the package is probably close to 9k or even higher.

 

Of course the real value is way lower: A T5 premium usually cost about 1500 gold, the 100% crew isn't very useful as it has to be retrained for a techtree tank, and most people likely wouldn't buy the camos for 750 gold and are drowning in crew XP reserves. So personally I'd set a pricetag of like 20 Euro for the bundle (most of that for the 3200 gold), and that's without any bundle discount.

75000 credits.

Trained for a premium tank, so only a 90% crew if you spend credits training them for something useful.

PR of course also have a gold value.

Something they give away pretty much every day just for turning up.

 

The bundle is about ten quid too expensive.  No matter what WG's accountants think it's worth.

If it seemed good to you, that implies that the offer was acceptable at that price. So you then find that what was looking like a good offer, and you would have been happy to pay for it, comes with an added extra at no extra cost, and suddenly its not such a good looking offer. 

 

I can understand that your thinking is along the lines of,

Oo! A tank for £25. Nice. I can afford that and I think I will buy it.

Then you see the bundle contains the unexpected gold.

So your thinking now changes to,

Oh! A tank for £25 but I dont need the gold, so I want to pay less for it, but WG only offering if in a bundle I dont want. Greedy Wg.

 

If you had gone direct to the Premium Shop, you would see the offer included the gold. It looks like the Game Website was incorrect and you went to the offer via that link. So, at the end of the day, only you can decide if you want the tank or not.

Could always use some of that mostly unused sweet premium time to do more normal random battles while yelling 'for Kursk' really loud.

If you look at the first image there's no price mentioned. You only see the price when you click on it, are taken to the premium shop and see the offer.  That is the first time you see the price and the first time you see the gold.

 

I did go to the premium shop.  That's where the second image was taken.
