It's Time To Trade In Your Premium Tanks!

It means, It's time to rip you off.

Never liked this "trade in" feature. It's filthy, for so many reasons.

 

Edit: ok, time to blow some steam off now. I see a lot of statistically weak players getting ready to be milked by WG here.

 

So, some players buy a premium tank, they find out it's not working for them. And they saw some youtube video or got owned by a better player in X tank and now they want THAT tank. And wow, WG allows them to trade their old premium in, and get a discount for a new one.

 

Not allowing them to test the new tanks first ( most of these players don`t research reviews and don`t understand the hidden stats from tanks.gg or even know about tanks.gg and the likes)

 

Just ripping them off. As some of these players will trade good premium tanks that just don`t work for them for a new tank that they have no clue it's trash.

 

If WG really wanted to help the players a bit it would allow them to test the tank they are interested in. They will also offer a greater discount or even allow a full trade of a tank for another tank without extra gold needed, right now it's just a milking scheme. It's not cool WG, really, you are mocking your paying customers.

 

 

People, also ... you forget the state of MM these days. Tier 8 tanks get thrown in bottom tier matches against tier 10s almost all the time. And most tier 8 premiums cannot handle well fighting against tier 9s and 10s. Let alone most players who usually buy them. It will be a very unpleasant experience. I have a lot of tanks in my garage, tech tree and premiums. And I barely play my tier 8 premiums anymore due to the state of the matchmaker.

Uh can only trade in one vehicle at a time!?

 

I wanted to melt down my IS2, Rudy and T-54 Mod 1 but if I can't put all 3 into one purchase then forget it.

 

Smells like a rip off anyway...

Why not make is so that we can trade in for example 3 prem tanks for 1 new.

Oh, Im sorry I forgot, you in WG EU have no means of making any decisions on how the game or these things works...you work just like a translator for the russians...

Where do you see on  "available for purchase list" the defender? Do you even english bruh?

 

IMO, the only thing that sucks is the fact that you can't trade in 2 vehicles (of the same tier at least) for a "new" one.But hey, WG.

​He is mistaking the sell list for the buy list, that is how :trollface:

Which is the best tank CDC or the FV4202, would it be worth trading in my CDC, or maybe even a Mutz?

The only acceptable trade-in I think is if we exchange a campaign reward tank for a premium, for example like I've already done exchanging my T28 Concept with VK 45.03 (which I like very much). Because I got the reward tank for free.

But you have 'solved' this problem by making Excalibur not eligible for trade-in...

It îs worth it to trade T34 for the buffed 112 ?
I grind the wz line but also the T57 heavy line but the crew on the T34 is already decent but kinda need crew for tier X Wz because I plan to get WZ and 113.

Does it worth it or is cheaper to just buy 112 when on sale in tech tree so that I also won’t lose T34 which I never play because is bad?

The excalibur is specified to not be able to trade in, but not the T28 HTC? I want to trade it in then.

Please, improve the "trade old for new vehicles" event. Now the premiums have become so many, I think you must make easier (and cheapest) for players to change them. I believe that the conditions of the event are too strict (for example exchange 3 for 1), the cost is high, and the list of vehicles is too short. I beg you to improve it.

Let me put this on a different way:

They sold a massive amount of useless tanks saying that they have a pref matchmaking and then they admitted that packing the whole thing in a nice package. From the fact that those tanks are sh@t, that does not mean that if they give a nice package to their fail, those tanks won't remain sh@t.

 

They offer to trade in on your damage, meaning that your sh@t tank bought for proper price at that time, is worth half. Furthermore, you cannot chose whichever tank you like, they still sell sh@t tanks in exchange. I would love to trade in my KV-5 (present) to a Lorr or a Skorpion. But it is not possible.

 

WG greedy company, when will you understand that with these moves you lose reputation, even if you have a working business model, that does not mean that it is ethical and on the top of that, continuing this way, you reach bottom soon. I know, many people said that, but I hope once, you will beg for people playing your "free to play" code. 

 

I do hope, that soon, something great will come and you will finally have a competitor. I will then pay attention who will I chose.

Actually in game the trade in feature does not appear to be working, no little icon in the tech tree.
