I think I'll trade in T34b for ELC 90. Even if WG decides to buff T34 it won't be anything special, just another slow heavy. ELC is at least fun :)

112 - Decent heavy with lowish base pen but has PMM (doesn't see Tier 10s)

112 is a great tank, i have it a short time, but this tank really surprised me. Pene is not bad and the armour is really amazing :D many times bounced me tier IX tanks :D

 

No, no, just no. Yes you don't meet tier X, but what does it change if nowadays there are many tier 8 heavies which you can't damage frontally with that pen? And premium MM only means you're playing with tier 9 almost all the time. Yes you can bounce with this tank, but the gun handling is so terrible you're going to be frustrated playing with this tank almost all the time. I like the looks of it, and have some sympathy for it having 3rd marked it, but I wouldn't recommend this to tank to anybody, unless you're so desperate to buy something, anything, just as I was when I got it. :D

Previously I exchanged the Jadgtiger 8.8 for T54 mod 1, T-34-3 for W-111G-FT (best deal ever) and the AC4 experimental for the STRV M42/57 (or whatever it is called)..

 

Tempted to trade in the Panther 8.8 this time..

So... whats the purpose of trading in a tank for half of a value in order to buy a tank for full price? 

In this respect, the sample trade-in is pretty funny. Trade-in your Digger Max and buy Lowe for ONLY 10.900.

(or, perhaps I wait for the regular 15% discount and buy Lowe for 10 625 AND keep digger max). 

The only real value of such trade-in event would have been if you could buy tanks which are not part of tech tree. I accumulated some gold over xmas and not taken the FL reward hoping to get something decent in advent calendar or trade-in... Looks like have to wait till next year.

i want to get rid of the crappy Action X, but there is nothing i can trade it for. I only miss 2 tanks, STG + 112, but to trade it in for them is trading crap for crap :/

no fake news... you just misunderstood it (like I did at first)

non of the new tanks in the first list are available, you can only give them away if you have them.

only the tanks which you can buy in game with gold are available

Well... I can only get four vehicles using trade-in:

-AMX M4 49 (But I have Liberte which is the same tank)

-VK 168.01 P

-STG (but I have Guard which is the same vehicle)

-T26E5 (but I have the Patriot which is the same tank)

 

So there is only one tank which I might still need, in theory, but it's available in the in-game store so I could buy it from there at any time.

 

Sorry WG, no soup for me.

This trade in is pathetic as hell.

 

WG sucks so much gold from you by doing this. It's illegal and totally unfair.

 

You should only pay 500 gold for trading in your tank and what ever you can trade in, you should trade out. PATHETIC WG.

"Tanks used for trade-in cannot be restored with the Restore functionality."

 

So, if you trade in the Chimera there is no way of getting it back on the account even though it's a campaign reward?

How come you can't trade for some tanks that pretty much should be available. 

 

Like why isn't 50TP prot. not available. It's the only polish preimum heavy so why make it a limited edition :S

The Emil 1951. Again same deal

 

Say what you want if they are bad or good. But it's not like any of them are the 703 or E25. Just strange when you advertize premium tanks as crew trainers along with the credit advantage when you can't even get them. And yes 50TP was in the calendar but that doesn't mean that everyone had the opportunity to get it then.

Because WG needs some way to balance their books, let's say they have slow quarter which is about to end, suddenly baaam, Progetto and that wheeled abomination go on sale, income fixed, WG happy.

 

Also it creates situation where somebody is waiting to buy some tank they really want, waiting, waiting, until they give up and say better something than nothing, they buy some other tank and then 2 weeks later their dream tank goes on sale, so then in the end they buy it too, and they end up buying tank they never normally would if the one they wanted was available all the time. WG gets extra money, WG happy.

 

BTW. I remember seeing somewhere that Emil is restricted to being FrontLine reward, it wasn't on sale yet and it's not going to be available to purchase anytime soon.

I think that's called running a (profitable) business model. Like it or not, they are not in this to be a charity and they are successful at it.

 

Don't worry they will keep adding new stuff and making older Prems outdated. What the betting one day the Prog, Defender etc. are all power crept away? If the game survives long enough, it will probably happen.

I know, I wasn't really complaining about it, just explaining the situation to some unaware people.

 

On the subject of nerfing premium tanks I agree, in fact I don't really understand the hype about Defender, it already was nerfed to the ground with the introduction of all those high pen TD's on tier 8, like Strv, Skorpion G, SU-130PM, WZ-120, they don't even need to use premium ammo to hurt it. It had OP armor when it was initially introduced, but nowadays even many new mediums can easily deal with it. I don't recall situations where Defender would ruin my game.

 

With destroying Progetto it's not going to be so easy, because while Defender had only one OP aspect - armor, which you could easily counter by increasing pen on many tanks, Progetto has many things which add up to a strong tank, mobility, gun handling, autoloading system. Breaking it would require complete "overhaul" of the game.
