I know some players have 100s of unused slots but I never have enough.

 

I begrudge selling elite tanks and like to buy back the iconic tanks from the lower tiers.

 

I currently have the T-28 Prot, IS-2 and T-20 all elited but I'm reluctant to sell them.

I also have the T-44 (elite) and IS-M (mid grind) with no crew but I'm reluctant to get rid of them.

Then there's all the tier 8/9 light tanks that I never play (LTTB, T54ltwt, Bulldog, Hwk 12).

And some other "keepers" that I know I should sell (Leo !!).

 

Is any one else similarly affected ?

 

Please don't tell me "they're only 150 gold during a discount weekend" as I also have a severe case of Skinflintitis and think thet 15 gold is too much.

You can prolly earn a good amount via missions and all that. I currently have "only" 5 slots free, but my garage is well filled up with over 150 vehicles.

If you don't play those tanks and aren't preserving because of 3 marks then sell sell sell!!!

You have some odd priorities tbh. Okay I can get when people are stingy to spent money on a game. I get it less when people don't mind spending money on a T8 prem, but won't shell out for a few extra garage slots.

 

So here's a tip you could appreciate. Next time you feel the urge to spend money on a premium tank, go for the package with gold included. Spent the gold on garage-slots. 3K gold gets you 20 garage slots on a discount weekend, that's plenty.

 

Note that the complaint 'Never enough garege-slots' does have merit if you are a full free to play player, as you don't spent money on the game then & missions/events that distribute gold (and garage-slots) are very rare. Moment you open your wallet tho? Buy some garage-slots, they're not that expensive & will boost your enjoyability of the game alot, as you can store & play more tanks.

Can't say that I have. I bought 10 slots in Jan 2016 on half price as I ran out. Since then I never bought a single new one. And I have 28 free now and bought many new tanks since then. Even old tanks I sold ages ago. As after I bought new slots the last time, WG started to give them out more and more for every event. Plus all the free slots from PM 1.0.  Just keep an eye out on the mission tab, they appear now and then. 

 

But ofc I've sold a few tanks since then too. And not all my grinds are keepers. But I only have 3 stock grinds at any given time.

Stop complaining then. :rolleyes:

Do you expect the game to support every kind of hoarder for free?

T28-Prot = sell. Too slow to be fun.

IS-2 = the CN one? Do you have the USSR IS? If so sell one.

T-20 = the USA tier VII medium? My go to platoon tank at tier VII only reason I kept it.

T-44 = best medium at tier VIII (although that is nothing much to be "best" about). I kept it.

IS-M = too situational, good but not much fun = SELL.

tier IX lights, you only need to keep the T54ltwt to be competetive, and the USA one to derp fun. Sell amx 13 90 and wz. I really liked the AMX 13 90 but the T54ltwt is better.

tier VIII lights sell the chit Hwk 12, and LTTB. Keep mini bat chat and WZ

tier VII light - keep USA sell rest.

 

You need to sell the poor ones and keep the better ones. Discriminate harder on the sub par ones.

 

EDIT

 

I have 168 tanks in my garage and 35 spare garage slots.

35 of those tanks are tier X.

73 of the 168 are premium vehicles.

120 used 40 free. Must have been at least 5 years since I got bought one. Seems like they just gives them away.  Not to rub it in though.

I've come to realise that it is not worth it for me to continue many lines. My skill ceiling appears to be tier VII, and although I have some good tanks at VIII to X, I am not in the least bit bothered about collecting as many tanks as I can.

 

I've abandoned several lines completely and others I am patiently waiting for discounts to consider progressing. The only way I am continuing the Chinese tank line is when my Type-58 hits 50% WR (it is going to happen) and I sell it to use the crew in a tier VII. Otherwise, I haven't bought a new Chinese tank for about three years.

 

Top and bottom of it all is- through PMs, rewards and buying too many in the early days: I have 18 slots spare. I keep buying back the odd lower tier tank to use a slot and a crew, but I have sold some that I didn't really like despite a positive WR when I first played them. I'd like to rise to the challenge of playing some popular tanks to a positive WR, but some of them I hated so much that I am never going to consider trying them a second time.

 

Incidentally, I currently have 81 crew in barracks, but some of them could go as they are original crews from Premium tanks- T-29, T28 HTC and T-55a for example.

I only have 121 and 113 crews in there, in hope that those tanks get buffed or better chinese tanks get in the game.

I'd love to see the "garage pass" bundle the sell on NA show up in the EU shop.

I got 14 free slots atm despite still having all the tier 2/3 gift tanks and maybe 15 tier 9/8/7/6 tanks I rarely play still in my garage...

 

I used to sell all tanks while moving through a line and only kept the interesting Tier 6 and 8 for Skirmish. But since the new WG policy of adding new toptiers from existing branches I try to keep every tank from Tier 8 and higher..just in case ;)

I cant remember how many free slots i have, I know its alot though. Why keep a tank you'd have to retrain a crew to use? Rather than thinking how many tanks do I need youre better off thinking; how many crews?
