Saw the advert, yet another one, saw the comments and started to comment then thought, what's the point? I am going to play anything else for a bit!

Advertising at its best/worst is offputting and annoying. WG, you reached the annoying advertising peak some time ago, now I simply switch games! See you later!

 

​I hope you have fun in the other games!

Lol, I saw one in front lines, I was so surprised I stopped what I was doing momentarily and got reckt due to my shock at seeing one in battle, I think I can count on one hand the times I have seen these things in battle. This is a tank you only have to look at to see it is garbage, like cross between the rubbish KV2 and the horrible KV4, I cannot see one thing about this to even consider buying and would not do even if were only a fiver, the price it should actually be. £35 for this, someone has been on the vodka a little too much.

 

I'm a sucker for premiums, but not that much of one:trollface:

 

It is fun to bully things, it's so heavy that anything trying to brawl with you is easy enough to push and shove into submission :D

In this case, the rarer tanks are usually monetised in bundled, but in this case, the bundle with 3500 gold would be tempting as that's pretty good value, but I already have the tank! It was my go-to for ram kill missions! 

Saving 7ct and getting 15 Missions is not really a good value. But i get the point of selling rare tanks for a higher price. fortunately, i got mine back in the days.

 

I'm looking forward to the improvements on the matchmaker, as the KV is one of the main victims of the current state :great:

I bought one when it was first released, the Tank only works against people with like hundred matches or so, and that doesn't use the Pen indicator or a brain or the left mouse button. 

 

If you hide your Hull weak spots by Reversing all day eventually people will see the 2 Huge Weakspots on top of the turret.

 

Calling it a Rammer is quite hilarious as well since it will never reach the top speed before the game ends of it goes down the Mount Everest.

 

Selling it for 40€ adds insult to injury while making it a 7500 Gold tank. None should ever pay this much for a useless T8.

Lol, maybe if you sell a Type 59, Defender or IS-3A.

 

No one wants these crap tanks.

KV-5 is by far my most played tank and 59% win ratio, which is also far above my average, tells a lot. It was a beast which perfectly suited my aggressive playstyle. However, this tank fell victim to power creep so badly it's almost funny. Still can shine every now and then, but for the most part playing it today is usually frustrating experience.

the gold alone makes the offer somewhat good value considering the tier 8 thrown in, everything else is just gravy!

You don't need to be top speed to be able to bully and push your opponent around, including doing damage with little nudges.

Have to say that I was one of them...thank you for listening. Can we have a multinational tier 8 premium arty next please...with mobility like the Lorr 155 51 but turret/auto-loader like the BC 155 58...the perfect weapon for Frontline ;)

Gonna pass on this, jeez I spent way too much on the Christmas/ new year event (nice job btw). i held back for a good 3 months before the event, spending cash on WOT, still got plenty of Gold left now.....now it'd be really great if WG provided some good deals for players to use thier mountains of gold on something useful ehh this year?...

 

I got a Defender (and really enjoy playing it:medal:)on Christmas day and that will be my main Soviet Heavy trainer now! :girl:

I do like these troll-ish tanks :)

 

Would have bought if there was an option to buy for gold. Got waaay to much gold left over after the x-mas boxes

Many people have commented on the fact that this tank originally cost 7500 Gold.

 

Funny how Wargaming are not commenting on that fact.

 

Its not worth £35 of anybodies money.

I am tank collector, to be precise premium tank collector i love rare premium tanks to have in my garage.

 

Sometimes i open my wallet for rare birds such as E25, unmarked 13 57 (thank you Cobra, you recommend this one or me) and many more.

 

however my mind is drifting towards not buying them anymore just because you are putting this nice vehicles in a bundle pumping up the prices for 20, 30 euros above they original worth. No i dont want x5 missions or added gold or crew or anyting. I just want simple and plain tank. that is it.

 

Also i understand you have to make money in free to play game, i worked for War thunder and i get it. BUT you really need to sit with your marketing department and talk to them because you dont realise you are making this harder for you. Yes you will sell few KV-5 now with this price, but you will sell much much more for cheaper and without bloatware you are forcing with them.

 

Please if you want this community to respect you and players to actually come and not leave consider this as open letter to you, the developer, the company. You made something amazing dont let it become cash grab.

 

Boris (radijacija), those who know me from war thunder pop in and say hello.

Remove he other items in the package and then look at the price of the general tier 8 heavy. You will have your answer, I figured it didn't need a comment for common sense sake.

You will also be aware that some tanks are bundled for value reasons and for other marketing segment reasons :)

It's more to do with the fact that you know quite a few players will want to buy this tank.

So you artificially inflate the price by adding in 3500 gold, which nobody wants.

 

Sorry, but yet again its #walletclosed.

​That's your choice but for every player you know that won't buy for gold, there's at least 1 who will because it has gold.
