I will never again wish for new tanks, in fact every now and then i am selling some tanks, trouble is i a like a woman and shoes, I have way too many.

 

Although I still hope in vain that the Chrysler K comes to the shop soon but WG negated that by putting in an arty in the vote what could possibly have gone wrong?

 

 

 

Will tank trade in ever return, such a useful feature of the game and why is it not a permanent feature?

Never understood this mania for buying new tanks.  FOMO I guess.  I suppose people grow out of it...

More than one is too many.  Less than one is not enough.

Buying a premium tank and playing it for less than 300 games is pretty dumb. 300 games is enough to master the tank, train some crew, get some good credits etc.

Most important, it allows you play enough so your tank WR settles down, you learn about how and how not to play it. Then you can have a proper opinion. Anything bellow 300 games just can't justify the money spent imo.

Very well reasoned statement.

And to do that one must avoid looking at forums AND youtubers singing songs of how OP is that new tank....

I agree, well sort of.

 

For a £30, Tier 8, 300 games is still 10p/game.

 

After 50-100 games crew training becomes so slow that it's effectively valueless (unless you are training multiple new crews).

 

So 10p per game for 50% more credits.

 

Premium time is ~ £1/week if bought annually, so probably a lot better value, especially if you play a lot.

 

I regret a lot of my premium tanks.

For some, less than one = divorce ... which in turn = one too many..    all this thinking is making my head hurt

For me a premium tank has to fill one criteria and that its fun to play. My main regrets for purchasing prem tanks are turretless tds, which I find quite boring to play.

I would also never buy a t8 prem heavy/heavium/armoured med again in this game as being cannon fodder isnt fun.

I own lowe and patriot and constantly playing them as "support" vehicles is not fun either.

Watching the new polish heavies get smashed by t9s and t10s in my last session confirmed that stance. If you are going to be bottom tier constantly u need speed.

I would have added the LeFh to my incredibly limited number of premium tanks, but because WG were focused on money grabbing by forcing it into a bundle instead of just letting people buy the tank on it's own (like it previously used to be available) I missed out yet again...

I will never understand why some people feel the urge to buy everything they can in the premium shop when it comes to F2P games, but hey thanks for keeping the servers up.

I'm amazed you thought it would beat the E25... or a majority of the premiums even. It did not sell to well to get hyped that much.
