Hey all,

 

I am sorry if this topic already exists but i couldnt find anything similar.

 

Would you pay some real money to promote your fully researched (elite) tanks to premium tank ?

 

I think it would be great, for example, to promote my Hellcat to premium and use it as crew trainer, without penalty,

plus it could add 50% bonus to XP and credits.

Would be cool if Elite vehicles could already do that without having to pay, but the XP and Credit bonus be minimum 25%.

This comes up quite often and is imo good idea which WG should have used right from the start. Unfortunately hindsight is twenty-twenty and now we and they are stuck with the unnerfable stand-alone premium model.

Think about it....until this week's update, I had everything in the game researched. Giving all my elite tanks the premium status/advantages means that I can drive ANY tank, and will only need a single crew for each nation/class. Very soon, the crew will be fully trained with all skills complete. So, everyone who is newish in the game gets absolutely slaughtered by players driving around with insane crews. I'm not convinced that it is a great idea, even though I used to think it would be great to get premium benefits on my charioteer for example.

Indeed... It would be great, if it is too much for WG, they could limit this to once or twice per account...

It can be limited to one or two tanks per account, that could settle it...

Plus, you have a lot of tanks, times 10 or 20 euros, would you take it ? I didnt say it has to be for free, that would be unreal...

Limiting it could solve the problem admittedly. I don't think the cost would, some people pay amazing amounts on gaming.

Been suggested 9999 times. Problem is that on some tanks it would not make much of a difference vs others. But we all know that no one will pick the Hellcat. Instead, everyone will pick the T67. And we don't need more reason for everyone to play that way more often.

 

But if they did that, it can't be 50%. 25% could work them to control it more, and a tier limit. But tbh I would rather see an option to convert it to a special tank for a price. As in 1.5x crew bonus and you can use any crew for it vs income.

It is bad idea because it would be hard to nerf tanks which you payed to gain premium status.

Sometimes a one sentence answer is the best.

 

The problem that WoT has is not reinventing ways to monetarist tanks, they can always bring in an XP income whether Elite or Premium, it is the end of the line crew skills that hit the buffer. So rather than buff tanks (a can full of worms) it would be better to make any ongoing crew skill a free XP option when the full list of 100% skill/perk slots have been reached. This way the crew XP from an Elite crew can be shared as you grind any other tech tree or amongst any other crew.

That does happen anyway though, usually accompanied with 100% premium ammo spam.

No, you couldn't limit it because that artificially and pointlessly restricts sales. Instead each one would be have to be sold at a price point similar to the actual premiums we see today.

as much as id like a premium SU-100, I cant imagine that it would promote the playing of other tanks and tiers.

 

for the majority, you make money on lower tier tanks to finance the higher tiers, if you take that away, then the only ones left in lower tier are those who like a tank there, like the T67. 

that's not good for the economy or the game dispersion.. its also not good for the newbies

 

will someone think of the newbies!

Well if they make them a "special" tank, and not premiums, as in crew training only etc. And make sure that people understand they are still subject to change. And so that it won't cost a fortune either. I'm sure they can get away with that. As a special status on "that other game" on any normal tank costs about €3 on a tier 5. Then it gets 25% more income. And they are still subject to nerfs etc. As is clearly said and pointed out in a warning before you convert it. And they never had issues with it.

Would this cause a delay in calculating the battle results? The game would need to check every players account to see if their tank was now a faux premium before the xp/credits earned could be calculated. Extra strain on the calculations, extra strain on the servers as extra entries in the database would need to made, and another reason for players to complain about the time they have waste waiting between battles and the loss of precious seconds of premium account or personal reserves they have running.

Don't know about Elite tanks. How about just doing it for reward tanks and doing it for free?

If you are going to do it for Elite tanks, use a voucher system so 24 hrs of premium tank costs 10 gold (arbitrary number).

So you basically want to promote your overpowered tank so it can never get nerfed cause now you invested real money in it? Is that it?

lol at all those voting up to 10 Euro.  Get real, if such a system were introduced then 10 Euro might get you a tier IV.  WG aren't stupid, you won't buy a premium tank if you can convert a regular one for half the price.

 

It won't happen because of the no nerfs to premiums policy though.

Well, with World of Warships they pretty much have this in the form of a premium camo, since the premium vehicle bonuses are tied to the camo they get.

And with WoWS, you can buy premium camo for any techtree ship of tier 6 and higher, at the cost of 1000-5000 doubloons, depending on tier (1k for tier 6, 5k for tier 10).

So €4,27 to €18,86 depending on tier.

 

As for nerfing those tanks:

They get nerfed just fine in WoWS so I doubt there should be a problem for it.

Then again, with WoWS you're just getting a better camo... :unsure:
