Most premium tanks in premium shop are pathetic in nowadays meta and they never lowered the price of them. 30+ euros for some pixel tank that sucks in current MM? Maybe Wg would sell more if they lowered the price. Many tank prices are around 30euros (tier 8). I look at them mostly for crew training but would never pay that price for not competitive vehicle( im not talking about op defenders and such!). Would you  buy some tanks if the prices were fairly normal?

You think the stuff in the prem shop is expensive? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Until a Tank becomes more expensive than a Drake Interplanetary Corsair then I'll take you seriously.

Prices of old premiums in the shop represent their gold value which are set in stone for some weird reason. I guess it's unacceptable to buy a cheap tier 8 premium heavy but you can, and will, get mauled in it by every other tank in the game then a random trade-in comes in and solve all your problems for half the gold value!

 

Why are you thinking of new ways to give them money?

I never said exspensive mate, just overpriced. I don't have problem with money, just don't want to pay some pixels that are not worth that kind of money.

Yea but there is a problem, if you are not satisfied with your tank you can have another one for half price, so you lose immediately. 'Cos im "new" player and would like to try some old premium tanks, but just like i said, i would not pay for lowe or is is6 over 40euros. Just my opinion ;-)

Depends on what tanks you are talking about. I can kinda agree with the IS-6 as it lacks even the HEAT pen the 112 has that makes that work. And the CDC should be priced just under the T26E4, not over it. But other then that? Nah not really.

then dont.

but if you want them just pay the full price or wait for special offers. 

infact Löwe was just the tier 8 of the week a while ago, and there was a special offer for it.

and those 30% coupons for tanks that cost over 30€ could be of use if you dont want to pay the full price.

Exactly and my post was a sarcastic response to this pathetic practice by WG. New players still fall for tanks like the IS-6, T34, CDC. etc.

 

Sorry guys, although i like the poll results so far and agree with them 100%, i think they're "meaningless" because you all must be arty or derp heavy players. Someone had to do it! :D

To be fair they have always been overpriced. Paying £30 for digital content when some AAA games are that price has always been to much imo, I own lots :) but have disposable income. Some of the vehicles I own have been worth the investment if I look at the time spent playing them. I'd guess about 50% haven't been though.

Its all personal choice, I just think WG should be at least monitoring how bad some paid content has become, there are a number of t8 prem meds that are a joke in current meta.

Agree, you can buy whole game for 50euros. And here you buy small part of game for 30+euros. And sometimes it's not worth it. Halve the prices and have total sale!

Yet, if I were to consider the amount of hours I've spent playing this game, the price of those premium tanks seems good value.

 

You do realise that if you made premium tanks dirt cheap, removed gold ammo, offered free crew retains (and everything else I've seen people suggest in the last week on the forums), WG would go bankrupt and you'd not have WoT anymore!

That's why there are cheap tanks and more expensive ones.

Also why if you wait you can win tanks or get discounts.

 

Is £30 a reasonable for a tier 8 premium tank, I guess that's something we have to decide for ourselves.

Prices have risen, I paid £23 for my Type 59 just before they removed it from the store in Jan 2012.

Ok, let's see. New tank comes out for a price of 35 euros. 10000 players buy it on Eu server. Other 150 000 players don't buy it mainly because of the price. Put the price at 20-25euros and 50 000 players buy it. So i can't see any bankrupcy here. Simple economy. People love to buy when the prices are lowered.

And Wg makes every now and then new premium tank, so again, i can't see any problems in that.

You are always free to buy whatever you like if you agree with the price; or not if you don't.

 

Basic economics 101.

 

And where is your market research to support the numbers you quote.

I believe WG has a very good marketing plan; they have been in business for 20 years after all ... just saying.

I was undecided so voted for all options.

 

But it doesn't matter what I think, what matters is do they sell enough to keep the servers running.

 i am living in aboring city. My life is work and play games at home. So i don't mind paying 30 euros to a tank. Tanks like Progetto46, Lorr40t, is3a, defender,dicker max,scorpion are worth their money. Is6 is meh... i sold it just like 112, they annoy me.

I think they can sell more unique rare tanks, good price like 50-60€ at short period and never sell them afterwards..

Fully agree. It's in game content they are selling, not actual games. Price level does not represent this.

 

If tanks were a bit cheaper I'm sure I would have spend much more on the game overall. I have plenty money, but 30-40 euro for in game content is ridiculous IMO.

 

The big "problem" as I see it is that basically buying 1 premium tank solves your credit issues in game. So the first tank you buy basically is a "pass" to prevent tedious tier 5 credit grinding at 10-20k per match. For this  it was worth it for me to spend the money. However after the 1st the only added thing you get is a crew trainer, and the option to play a different tank while still making credits. This is not worth 30-40 euro imo.

If it were up to me, after the first tier 8 purchase other tanks should be discounted to more realistic in game content price levels. 

 

On the other hand if I see how much money is spend on the game, and comments above, probably WG knows better than I do.

The tanks are overpriced in general. They always were. For one single tank I can get a whole new game that gives me 100+ hours of entertainment.
If this game was my only "hobby" - ok, who cares? But since I have some other things on my agenda that cost money, I rather spend the money there.
