I´m exceptionally curious. This would allow me to play WoT without feeling like I have the hanbrakes on regarding grinding, but also give me flexibility to take breaks whenever I want, maybe even play something else, without feeling like I´m wasting my premium time. 

 

But you don't get to have the choice on a day to day basis, it's a 'random' choice of player that gets offered it, and probably less 'random' than the usual concept of 'random'.

I purchased 30 days flexible premium, but unfortunately it's not as flexible as was advertised.
When I play my first game of the day in the evening and want to make use of premium time the next morning: another day of premium triggers.

Also: I received 1 day of premium because of missions last week. I wanted to use that, but again: another day of premium triggers. I now have three days of premium going to waste.
The fix for this issue: do not trigger the day of premium if premium is already active.

Where did you bought it? i cant find it in Premium Shop (also funny, that i dont see ordinary 30 days premium, i guess is buggy cos 105 german TD is also unavailable).

Is price different than ordinary premium? 

Can be bought with ingame gold?

This is true. I got the ingame offer as well and instantly bought it. I've been waiting for this since you can spend money on the game. Seeing that today another day of premium got activated despite 12h from yesterday were still running I was pretty confused. Vuque confirmed it was working as intended this way. So it's at best half as a good offer as it seems at first sight :sceptic:

I think this is a good idea but people might still compare the price to an annual sub.  Buying a year's worth is still probably cheaper for those who play on most days.  I pay 19p a day  (€0.25).  That means my monthly rate is £5.70  or €7.50.  That's substantially less than what folks pay if they pay per month.

This is my complaint number 1 when it comes to premium time! I struggle to get value even from 1 month as you pretty much commit to play that game every evening. Now, half an year and year purchase of premium is actually viable as you are not tricked into buying stuff which you are likely to waste majority off! Can't wait for it, but hopefully, wargamming will keep the price the same or just little bit higher, because otherwise it simply won't be worth it as monthly subscription is so much better. Throw 13 euros, get premium, some gold for pocket change and you are set.

My post was regarding the potential circumstance that this flexible premium time is successfully tested and and becomes a regular, all time offer in the premium shop.

I like the idea very much. But disliking the idea of activating when you enter the game and play. Sometimes i just enter to browse garage, compare tanks or make 1-3 games.

It should be activated by the player manually. Whenever he decides he will have free time to take full advantage of the premium days. Like holidays, vacation days, days off work, flexible working days, etc... Otherwise you cut the chance of the players to play 1-2 battles daily when they don't have much time. They would be scared to enter the game and activate the free days for just a few battles and 30 minutes of playing time.

They confirmed that this is as intended? Good job offering a process that makes me want to play less, not more. I will now only play if I can start in the morning. No more WoT on Mon-Fri. Thanks.

I 've wasted 2-3 months outta 6-month packages in the past so this would be very interesting to me. Even more so since I now tend to play sporadically.

A normal 30 day pack that I used to get a couple of years ago, feels like an obligation (to play) nowadays.

I see where this logic comes from, however the offer isn't that bad actually. When you buy a standard 30 days premium you never know how many days you'll miss by some unpredictable IRL incidents. The price I paid (€ 10,80) was insignificantly higher than a regular 30 days, and if they keep it up that way it would be a good thing anyway.

Same here, I got the flexible premium offer and bought it, but because it activates automatic if I just want to play a few games, I now don't play anymore during the week....

It should end up in the personal reserves and let you activate a day when you select it.

The main problem I see with the flexible, is that there are a deadline on when you have to use it before. With the 30 days offer I got, it said that those 30 days should be spend within a 60 days period, which doesn't really give you that much wiggle room with it anyway.
