I've been ;looking at the Frontline Rental tanks, and I have to say I'm a little confused by the T-44 FL...obviously it's based on the tech tree tank rather than the T-44-100 premium, as it lacks the sideskirts, and actually has a different module set up, as per the table below. That makes sense as you can rent it for silver.

Module T-44 FL

Equivalent tech tree T-44

T-44-100
Gun LB-1 or 122mm LB-1 or 122mm LB-1
Turret T-44-100 T-44-100 T-44-100
Hull T-44M T-44M T-44-100
Radio R113 R113 9RS
Engine V-54-6 V-54-6 V-44

But, what does that mean if we rent it for the full period for 1500 Gold, what happens afterwards with the gold? Will that be counted as a discount towards a T-44-100 or some other variant in the same way that gold spent renting the Pz 58 FL can be used towards buying the Mutz?

I guess no, I heard in Chinese server, they also have rental tanks, which last 1 month, after that period, if you still want that tank, you can either keep paying the rental or buy that tank for full price.

All the Gold spent on rent will be accumulated in a special fund that can be used to get a discount on the purchase of the original version of any of the leased tanks.

It doesn't matter what tanks and for how long you've rented them, all the Gold will be in the fund.

Seems pretty clear to me.  It doesn't matter which tank you rented the gold goes toward any of the premiums.

Maybe I need to rephrase the question....

I already have the Mutz, T34, Schw 58, T34B and T-44-100 other in my garage, along with probably everything else that will be offered in future episodes....is there any forthcoming reason to incent me to rent the T-44 FL for gold or silver? Will I be able to buy another T-44 premium variant at the end such as the T-44-122? Or is the 1500 gold wasted/lost if no purchasable premium tank comes up?

It's also pretty clear on what is coming up to rent in this season and what happens to the gold if you don't use it for a discount and that you can only get discounts on the regular premium versions of the rental tanks.

 

The T-44-122 no, that is not a premium thank it's a special reward tank.

Well no, I still don't see it as clear. Like I say, I've all the premiums listed in the regulations, but it's not clear whether there will be some sort of offer related to the T-44 series. i.e. what do they consider the "regular premium version" of the T-44 to be.

It is clear.

If you use the 1500 gold to rent the T-44 FL for the full season then you'll have 1500 gold to go in the fund and use on any of the 10 premium vehicles.

You obviously can't buy a T-44 with gold, so its any of the 10 premiums you can rent in Frontlines.

The gold will only be usable to get a discount on one of the 10 rental premiums (nothing special in that list, just techtree premiums). Probably only those you actually rented. So if you only rent the T-44 FL the gold is most likely wasted (the credits are wasted for sure).

Seems that everyone is of the view that there will be the 10 premium tanks available, and nothing for the T-44 then. I was hoping a WG CM would respond and say that there'd be something worth spending the T-44 rent for, but I have the other 10 already

Result....not worth me renting anything at all. Sometimes I feel like WG just doesn't want any more money from me.

There isn't one.

 

Stop looking for offers which aren't there and aren't going to be there.

 

It's not like you even need the rental.

The rentals are primarily there for players who don't have three tier 8 tanks.  Being able to get a discount on a premium with the money they have spent is just a bonus to entice them to spend more money.

Tbh... why should there be? It cost silver to rent pr week. And gold for all 10 weeks FL is up. And it's a normal tank, not a premium in terms of income and crew. So I would not expect there to be a... discont on an unrelated tank tbh. I even supsect the gold rental price to drop pr week the event is up.

There shouldn't be necessarily, but if there was the slightest hint that it might be worth getting in the circumstances, I would have done. The fact is that for the ten premiums, you could buy them after. For the T-44, there's nothing offered. If that's just the way it's planned, fine. But I wanted to be sure...now I am....question answered.
