Greetings Tankers,

 

im sure everyone has a favorite tank (or a couple), they like to use often, like reeeeally often and many already do. What bothers me is, that there is no real USE for that. You have fun, yes, but for grinding up lines and buying new tanks you have to switch to prems to grind the money, train the crew etc. I find it especially bad, that you have to start with an all new crew on a t9 vehicle if you want to keep t8 AND get the t10 (is3-is7, wz132-wz132a, 50120-50B, you get it).

 

My idea is the following: You can go to the store and buy a "Premium-Upgrade", that can turn a normal Vehicle into a Premium tank.

 

The Price could be set tier for tier and be in the range of normal Premium tanks, so the price would be the same as for normal prem tanks. The tank of choice would get all the features of a premium (crew training, creditbonus, can use other crews etc) and stays the same otherwise. Itd be just like buying a normal Premium, but you get your favorite tank. This way the thousands of games on the fun tanks would farm enough money/ train the crew, you could get ONE crew for t8 and t10 and thered be no need to spend hours in prem tanks you dont like.

 

 

What players get out of it:

- even more motivation to have fun in their favorite tank

- far better crew handling, since you need less

- no more hours of farming credits in tanks you dont really like

 

What WG gets out of it:

- same amount of money as for normal premium tanks (i know players dont care, but its a business and hence they need a profit from it)

- probably more sells, since many players would find their perfect premium tanks to buy (and since most have many tanks they have a lot of fun in they could buy a couple of those)

- hundreds of new premium tanks without the need of developing new models, stories, balancing etc.

 

 

I tought this might be worth talking about and considering. I know the UI implementation of actually CHOOSING a tank after buy the suggested upgrade might be a bit of work, but otherwise it should be an easily to moderately doable feature.

 

Open for feedback and maybe improvements to the suggestion, id edit the post if you guys have any ideas :D

 

 

Thoughts so far (30.8.18):

- either tier 1-8, since regualr prems go to t8 only, but 9/10 would be viable too, since you dont buy the tank and start your first games in t10, so it wouldnt really be such a bother

- maybe limited to one per account, even though i wouldnt know why, since you can just pay for more, like you can buy several prems as well

- tanks like t67 could be spammed in t5 regions, but honestly: it already does cause you reeeeaaally need the little extra wn8 -.-

- balanceissues could occur with using strong tanks as prems. but unlike a couple years ago regular prems are now stronger than nonprem tanks, so that shouldnt be an issue anymore

- maybe make it a "premium-light" upgrade, which gives 25% instead of 50%

- implement it as a "token", that can be put on any tank and be removed again (maybe for gold / once a week etc), to balanceing doesnt affect "premium" tanks, because to token can be reassigned

 

to be continued...

I think you should be allowed one. Perhaps not above tier VIII.

Snap, I like this idea too and tbh your not the first  person to think of this. 

 

One question, would the upgraded to premium tank keep its current spec? Final and unchange able like the premium tank now. Ie could you change the gun on it as you can with non premium tanks.

 

Personally I think the upgraded tank should be set in stone unchangeable, but then again maybe the spec can be changed with gold.

The other tank game gives you an option to turn regular tanks into "half-premiums", i.e., earning 25% more credits instead of the 50% a full premium gets.

We had this a couple of times already. Conclusion was the same, if I remember correctly: Limited to one per account - one at the same time with the possibility to change by buying it again.

When the idea first came up, people argued that players would simply use an OP tank and ruin the balance of the game, but since the balance is now completely ruined anyway... there is not much pointing against that idea.

I only agree if I can make my leo PTA a premium. Otherwise I am going to personally call up Serb and make sure the idea is torpedoed.

This. The idea was already up before the game was officially released. And here is the reason why it will probably never come.

Churchill Gun Carrier.

 

Why? Because it's so bad, the only thing that would save it from the depths of hell it's currently in would be to make it a nice little crew trainer at tier 6.

 

Those that already have it in their garage should have it converted to special/premium status. Kinda the same treatment as the Deathstar.

For some reason,in a dream tonight,I witnessed something like a ''M5A1 Stuart ''Double''". You know like the same M5A1 stuart with those same 47mm guns,just the same way as they are on MTLS-1G14. Except with reduced pen. Could be hilarious if I ever got that.

Could we use this to make our favourite premium tanks super premium too?

I'd like to pimp my elc even 90 :)

i think you could change the modules. normal prems cant be changed, since they simply have just one module per slot. the service could just (my assumption) change a tanks value of "isPremium(false)" to true and itd be done, modules could still be switched. tinking of tanks like Leopard/Luchs itd be mandatory to be able to play autoloader and single shot gun, otherwise id feel too restricted.

If it came with the caveat that WG could change/balance them if proven both OP or UP.

 

As it is now they usually don't touch premiums no matter what, and the debate of this is good or bad for the game never ends...

 

I for one think they should be able to...BUT with option to accept or get a refund matching what you gave for it..be it gold or real money. They can even nerf my two defenders a bit if they want..I prefer tanks balanced.

 

Edit: Android autocorrect "features"
