As some might recall, the in-game store used to have some nice premium tanks bundles and even deals for premium tanks that were not a fixture in the tech-tree. That is not exactly true now.

 

Everything that is in the in-game store can be easily bought somewhere else. The store feels abandoned and useless. It was supposed to offer an alternative to the web store, but that went down quickly. If WG abandoned the store, wouldn't be sensible to remove it (i doubt that there are many people using it now, due to the lack of any actual deals)?! They can leave the bonds store, which is somewhat useful, but the premium store...I can live without that tab, due to its current state. 

 

Any opinions on it?! Do you still think that is useful in any way? Should be kept or removed?

On website you buy tanks for real money.

In game store you can buy them for gold. 

 

How is that equal ?

 

And a lot of times you can buy them in game store for a discount.

I followed the store in the past half year. That was only once when there was an actual discount. As for buying the tanks with gold... you do know that gold is paid with real money, right?! So the argument doesn't stand. Then why do i need gold in game if i have to buy them with real money anyways?! Again, gold also costs real money. It doesn't come free. Except rare events, gold needs to be bought with real money. What does that tells?! That the in-game gold is useless?!

Maybe new players that dont know much about game mechanics  and stuff,..

I know I bought a tank tier 3,4,5  here and there but that was in my first 3 months of playing,..now NO MORE, if tank is not tier8 and op in some way--> pass

Well, an occasional Skorpion, Defender and so on in the in-game store for gold , as limited time offers (just like in the web store), wouldn't be bad. The asked gold should, of course, match the web store offers.  Otherwise, i think we can live without the in-game store and gold and just buy for real money.

They've already had the money for gold where as when they sell tanks like the defender in the online store it's all new money for them. So they have no want to let people buy them for gold. 

 

Realistically the only uses for gold are converting XP, retraining crews to new tanks and the black market.

if you buy 75 ny boxes u get around 50k+ gold. 
for that you can buy 2-3 tanks on website. 
or 3-5 tanks in ingame store. 

get the point ?

Most of us buy gold with cash some get it by playing clan wars never done that myself so how much and how often no idea.

Most of my gold comes from the Loot boxes sold at the end of the year.

Yes it costs real money and then again no it doesn't, I am buying the boxes for other reasons the gold is a pleasant extra.

I get more than I would if I just bought the gold so you can argue some of that gold is free or discounted.

 

There needs to be a way to remove that gold from the game so we will buy some more same as they need to remove credits so we have to earn more.

The store can stay there so far as I am concerned as there will never be any new tanks there and I have the older ones so its of little interest to me.
