Buy a regular premium tank you already own and you'll get the gold value as compensation. Only useful if you really want the gold, of course.

Although they do have removed the 'vast' in the coupon description, I'll have to give'em that.

 

It used to be written that it was a discount on a vast selection of WoT offers, now it simply says a discount on a selection of WoT offers

 

At least they're now a wee bit more honest about their coupons being very restricted on what they can be used for.

Do note, not using the coupon will give you a 100% discount. A great deal if you ask me.

I did this, and it was a very profitable transaction. I don't know why we can't buy gold on 30% discount though.

 

Then again, only if you want gold as he said.

The only coupon I used was for Heavy Tank No VI so that it was less than a tenner. Was a good buy tbh it's a decent tank.

Not much else to use it on anyhow.

These coupons are probably not mainly intended for long time players that have the garage full of premium tanks, but rather those players, which are the majority, that seldom or ever spend any on WoT, who can now get a regular premium tank with a nice discount.

I think those coupons are just a cash crab. I have a -30% coupon for premium tank only and premium time bundles and a -15% coupon for the same items but only if they cost +18€.

 

Bundles and specials are for players who rarely buy anything. Normal premium tanks are for players who already have garage full of stuff so they don't need the equipment, crew, gold with the tank. 

 

IMO these coupons are horrible. They are valid for 360 days of premium, which is on sale every Xmas anyways...

If it's valid on gold, buy gold at 30% discount, then wait for 15% discount on premium time in game and get a premium account for 45% off.

 

If it's not valid on gold or *ALL* premium shop offers/bundles, it's useless indeed.

I bought only 25 WoT lootboxes and... 25 WoWP lootboxes.

So that got me only a month of premium or so.

I've just noticed I have another 30% voucher. I used the last one for 3 months premium account but if I'm going to use it I'd likely get a tank this time and expand my play style. I quite fancy the M4A1 Revalorisé which would be roughly £16 and from what I can tell it seems good with high speed ACPR which are extremely cheap at 580 creds each. Pen doesn't seem that high compared to my Skorpion but I'm wondering if the numbers are misleading since the tank is likely closer to the enemy that a paper TD would be so that actual pen values might end up being comparable? Not being much of meds player I don't have much knowledge of them so for those that have the tank, would I be making a mistake buying it or is it actually decent?

I always found them useful for discount gold if needed. I'd normally spend €20 for gold at a time if I ever needed it for transferring crew and buying camo etc so since I have an M4 Rev, I would buy it again for 30% discount, which ends up close on €20 anyway, maybe a little more, but would get the full price value in gold conversion. So WG get some money I probably wouldn't have spent at that time and I get better value gold. 

 

There's a few decent premium tanks you CAN use the discount on though if you don't have them already. The Revo as mentioned, the WZ Chinese TD can be pretty savage under the right conditions but generally useful in most battles and fun to play. You can also pick up a T-34-85M for around €10 with that discount which is a really decent tank for that sort of money and not map reliant, always useful and fun to play.

I got two coupons. I have 40K gold left from the 140K from XMas lootbox bonanza, 417 days of premium left and ALL (no kidding) premium tanks that are in the store right now, except for the HWK 30. Which I can't buy at a discount.

There is literally nothing these coupons can give me. So thanks, I guess... but I have no need for them.
