Wouldn't this be a win/win?
Being able to convert your favourite tech tree tank/vehicle into a premium tank/vehicle seems like good idea or am I missing something?

 

[EDIT]  up till tier 8 and no arty premiums OFC.

Why would anyone play with tech tree tanks, even with a premium status?

 

As you know, Tiger II Premium would be a great idea against Defenders.

I'm sorry I can't hear you in my 53TP premium.

Why? Because extra credits and xp on a tank you enjoy playing, there are lots of tech tree tanks that are better/on par or have some interesting characteristic compared with their peer premium tanks on that tier.  Interesting suggestion.

If done right. That other game has it, but it only gives half the premium bonus vs a fully fledged premium. Nor any crew bonuses. And if they did it here. Everyone would play their fav tanks more often, as it made credits and crew XP. Imagine all the T67 owners, or the M44 owners. Just saying. But then again on other tiers it would make no difference. But here and there you have a fan fav you know would get spammed due to it.

Has already been suggested, I like it.

But it means less revenue for WG, so not going to happen, they need to pay the 180 map designers at work 24/7 you know.

It wouldn't be less revenue if they created and sold a 'Change Tank to Premium' ticket tho. Money talks.

For a quick $ now it'd possibly break the game economy in the long term.  A lot of players have to grind credits at lower tiers to be able to afford to play tier X, for example.  That wouldn't be necessary if they prem'd their fav tier x tanks.

 

You'd also get more people in already op tanks like the t67 at lower tiers.

 

I do like the idea in theory, I just think it needs a bit of thought before it'd be workable.

Depends. As I suspect for this to work, they need to make it cheap, and less effective then a normal premium to not make thos useless. As if it's the same bonus on both. We might have other issues. Again say it gets a 25% permanent silver and crew XP bonus. Or just one of them for even cheaper and at 35% etc. As if it's cheap enough, I suspect most would not complain even if it was as low as 20%. As it would basically be a permanent personal reserve bonus on that tank.

Well, players have to grind credits at lower tiers, thus it spreads population too. If they had a tier limit at this. Say 4 to 6 only, and a lower % bonus, or capped it at tier 8 for silver. And made tier 9 and X crew only. The impact would be less. That and it depends on if crews could be taken from a different tank with no penalties.

I remember answering to a topic like this a while ago. 

What goes around eh :), but personally I would love to see this happening.

 

Bugger, I've still got my warning point :confused:

What exactly do you propose? 

Would you change any of the tanks characteristics (armour/gun/pen/dmg)? 

Or just make it earn more xp/credits per battle? 

 

If the 1st, then there would be an imbalance in battle. You could have 2 players in the same tank, 1 standard and 1 with the added extras. Would that be fair?

 

If the 2nd, then why not just run reserves? Or do you want even more?

2nd choice and only up till tier 8 and no arty premiums.

Well people don't pay to just farm credits and XP, they pay to get an edge over others. Almost none of the tech tree tanks can stand up to their premium counterparts. And people are used to premium tanks being better than tech tree ones. You can't unring that bell. Once it's done, it's impossible to undo it. No one would pay to give premium stats to any tank while they have to fight Defenders, Progettos, Lorr 40ts and other premium tanks. Instead they buy these tanks and fight each other. 

 

The only way this would work if you could apply premium stats to T IX tanks. That way you can crush the most OP T VIIIs while earing credits and not having to worry about OP tanks.

This sounds like an interesting idea, but knowing wg they would pull the dirty on us with this so I dont really recommend. Unless you have a plan how they should implement it, which case I would support this. (I dont want wg to design this, would be great if we, the players could plan how it would be and when its ready we should present it to wg and they maybe implement it. At least thats how it should work in my head.)

I like the idea. BUT only if "premum" stops being a balance blocker like it is already.

If we could transform our favoutie tank into a premium tank? Defenders wouldent be in the game.
And we wouldent see tanks like defender E25 who on their own, singlehandly NERF every other tank in that tier.
Why reseach a tank? When you can simply buy a tank that is superior to any other tank in same tier? That is simply p2w. nothing else. And destructive for the gameplay.

Take a look at FL? How mane techtier tanks do you see there? hardly any. Because you can buy tanks that a downright superior to anything you can reseach.

 

If you payed for a reseached tank to be premium? It wouldt be superior, now would it?

The problem is the WG policy of not nerfing premiums.  Suddenly every tank is a premium and you have a balance nightmare.

 

And why bother with a complicated system when you can just introduce a clone tank as a premium (such as KV-2 R).

no arty premiums OFC

Such discrimination.

You already have that, its called Premium Account:D And I'm sure WG will not change that great SaaS to the one-time payment solution
