The real question is - is it worth for you?

 

The answer depends on many factors:

Do you spam gold?

Do you have a lower skill and make less dmg/spot dmg?

Do you want to grind many tanks?

Do you have a job/money to freely spend for enjoyment/hobby?

Do you value your time more than money?

Do you play more competitively and less recreational?

 

 

If the answer to 1 or more of these questions is yes, then I would recommend buying a premium account.

Part of the problem is it makes people advance too quickly.

Being premium helps you grind, but there's not a lot of point in grinding when the premium tanks are better than th ones you grind for. Maybe better to spend money on a couple of good premium tanks than on a premium account.

Personally I buy the Basic Needs pack every month, £11.54, 30 days and 1k gold.

So for the price of a Gregg's sausage roll and coffee every week I consider it well with it.

 

 

That is one damn expensive Greggs sausage roll and they ain't even that nice. For that money i could buy 6-7 Greenhalgh's sausage rolls and a couple of drinks :)

This is what I do too although I did buy 90 days premium when I had a 30% (iirc) token.

 

I did that a while back when they did the FV4202 and 90 days and as I had the FV anyway that got converted to gold and used a 30% off so made it quite a good deal for a change.

Do you have a lower skill and make less dmg/spot dmg? Ehm, between lower/medium skill, depends on the game.

Do you want to grind many tanks? Yes, I want to grind many tanks, currently I need credits to get IS-7,T30,E-75.

Do you have a job/money to freely spend for enjoyment/hobby? For now I do not have job, probably the summer i'll get one because now i'm currently in university and do not have the time for full-time job.

Do you value your time more than money? 

Do you play more competitively and less recreational? Some days i'm playing competitively, i have days which I am just playing recreational(but they're not much)

 

 

If the answer to 1 or more of these questions is yes, then I would recommend buying a premium account.

It would be so weird, but i do not like the prem.tanks, if I'm getting premium tanks, when I earn some free experience,i need to get some gold to transfer them from the tank.

You can tick the box "accelerate crew training" and the experience goes into crew training. That's what I do. I hardly ever convert the free xp with gold.

For me yes its well worth it as it speeds things up.

So assuming you play a lot and want to have no problems paying for the tanks you unlock premium time is a good idea.

You could always try out say 30 days and see how you go with that.

 

I used to get 30 days premium a couple of times a year and that was enough for me.

I got my 360 days when they gave me a discount coupon that was not limited in any way, it saved me quite a bit.

The extra daily bonus missions giving 50k credits X3 XP and 25 Bonds respectively are good and you also have the X3 XP boosters you can use 5 times a day on winning games of your choice.

Finally 10% of the credits you earn in every battle is added to a vault which opens every 7 days so that's up to an extra 750k credits every week.

Whether I will keep running a premium account after I unlock all the tanks I do not know I have 52 tanks left to get and have nearly  enough credits to buy them thanks to the premium account.

It's a good investment if you genuinely enjoy the game and know that you are going to play it a lot.

There's nothing wrong with spending money on something that you enjoy. Just make sure you enjoy the game and play it actively.

 

Prem acc will provide you with plenty of stuff that just makes the over-all experience a lot better.

Premium Account is definitely worth it over anything else in the game you can buy for money

Premium account is not worth it anymore IMO. In my playing time here, I bought numerous premium tanks & account subscriptions, but after the last few changes that WG have introduced the game itself is simply not worth supporting anymore. The game itself has become far too monetized and it has actually harmed the direction of where this game is going.

For me there are 2 ways to look at spending money on the game other than can I afford it or will I have to give something up.

First there is the I am not giving this company any more money because of some reason.

Then there is the I am going to make life harder for myself because of some reason.

 

I don't like the energy prices but I think sitting in a cold dark house because I don't think I should add to the profits of an energy company that just got a big tax break. is fairly stupid.

Premium account "helps" a lot with tech tree and crew grinds (as mentioned above).

 

BTW if you play WoWs and/or WoWp - keep an eye on WoWp Premium shop as their Premium Account covers all three WG products.

Prem time is okay. I just wish it did not count down on the days I don't play. It just feels like throwing my money away. 

But if you know you've got the free time, its your money.....

This.

If like me you only get to play one day a week it's plainly not worth it.

If I played the way I used to do - almost every day it would have been worth it - would have eased the grind no end.

Sods law - when I had the time I had no money; now I have the money I don't have the time.

If they only let us 'use' premium time when logged in, and it paused when inactive. While they would potentially take a hit in £££, I suspect many more people like me would actually buy premium, knowing it isn't being wasted. I literally play for a few hours a week, in spots. Not worth me buying premium to cover that time as it's largely wasted.


It'll never happen I know, but a man can dream.
