could these offers not be bundled up with useless ballast?

 

so far, nothing impressive has shown up.

Can somebody explain what I am going to get more exactly back? Because I don't think it's going to be gold... I mean that would mean, that I only pay 300 gold for it? Or is viceversa, I only get 300 back?
Thanks!

 

You will pay just short of 300 gold and get a garage slot, crew, and missions.

EDIT
@Zolti

 

If I see correctly, you should get almost all the gold back. So no, it`s not the case where you get back only 300 :)

For the moment, it seems that I payed the full price in gold.

When skill4ltu checked if you get the crew, it didn't show. Maybe he didn't see it, or you actually don't get the crew.

I got the crew, but the full amount of gold was deducted and nothing was given back. I even restarted the game, and still didn't received anything back. So, honestly, I still have no idea what that note means..

You didn't by chance have the Skorp without camo and now bought the one with camo?

You're supposed to get the gold back a few seconds after you purchase the tank, but if you don't get it back in a couple of hours, you should try opening a support ticket.

That`s good advice. I suggest waiting a bit but if after some hours there`s nothing then the support is your friend.

For people who bought any of the Advent tanks with gold: are the x5 missions tied to the tank, or can you complete them with any tank?

They are tied to the tank. I did this on the EVEN 90, but unlike last year you DO NOT get the crews when you buy duplicate tanks for gold, which is rather disappointing to me. :sceptic:

If you have it already and buy for gold you will not get the crew.

Make sure you have a BiA crew to put in it, because for some reason the long range accuracy is disappointing without it, you can fully aim at a stationary target, but the gun will be like, "Nope! Lemme put that shot in the 20% of the reticle not filled by the target." 

It is rather frustrating when you put a new-ish crew in it without BiA. At least that is my experience with the tank. 

Otherwise, this is the most popular premium in WoT for a reason, those big dmg shots never get old to see and it farms credits exceptionally well. 

Sounds like wg normal mm+rng shenanigans

Nope, I used it for a few games back then, when you could get it for a rental from codes.

Still nothing, so I guess support it is.

Eurm, you only got a rental? So you don't own the tank?

Support will not be able to help you then I'm afraid.

Its funny how people think Premium tanks still have the stats from when they are released the first time....I got skorpion in the loot boxes last year ,played it some games and it was decent .

Then the aiming and accuracy started to act strange and from then on poor skorpion is gathering dust along side other ''op credit makers '' that people claim .

Meanwhile i have alot more fun and good games in tanks that people think are crapjust because they are so bad WG forgot to mess with the stats after release :))

Ohh i forgot ...Do people remember that Grille should be the MOST ACCURATE gun in WOT ? :)) Its parked near the skorpion.....

Ah... if it was just a rented one them I`m afraid there would be no big gold refund. 


It would have been refunded if you bought the Skorpion in the past. Rented vehicles do not count in this regard.

No problem, I wasn't expecting any, I wrote them to ask about that sidenote, worst case scenario I just found a misleading bug. :)

I have 13 premium tier 8 tanks and this is by far best tank, it is not aitting duck TD like many ppl think and it is NOT CORRECT to compare it woth SU-130PM, it is totally different type of tank, it can snipe, but best roles are in support and shoot and relocate gam, very mobile and accurate with good crew (have it 6 skills and perks). Great tank!

Imagine if WG sold premium tanks for 20 eur and not in [Edited] bundles.

 

As I keep on writing around, the main point of this event is to give you the chance to buy certain tanks for gold. The Premium shop offer is supposed to be a plan B. :D

^This is correct. Pointing it out to dispel any doubts.

Tried the scorp as a rental. Did not like it.

 

Well that's why we came up with rentals. No harm done if it's not a vehicle for you. :)
