First post in my 6 years in the game.

 

Could ANYONE in WG explain how the 50TP Prototyp was simply removed overnight from the premium vehicles in the tech tree, silently and without any warning whatsoever, thus it cannot be bought with ingame gold? Shouldn't you give us a notice, concerning such actions (as you have done in the past)? You think (let's say you do) that this is ok, because not many people will notice, as it was not stated anywhere? You think that this is professional (what? we are talking about WG here)?

I hope for a straight answer from someone in your staff, that knows what he/she is talking about (yeah right) and not a " I'll see what i can learn" one, or any other irrelevant comment from irrelevant people in your team.

I think that nowadays WG is becoming shadier by the day... And the other s too.

 

Thanx for reading

Was it ever even a tech tree premium? I don't think it was.

It was written somewhere I'm sure, I saw it. Give me a couple of minutes and I should find it.

It was just written in the TAP site today, after the removal. And really, external sites know their crap and not WG?

Also, sorry, NO it doesn't happen like this, they are supposed to inform us. If I am wrong in this, don't know what would be right...

It would be nice to tell us but they dont have to.

 

And anyway why complain. Unlesss you were about to buy it today (?) in which case it will be on sale again anyway.

Actually, I was about to buy it with in game gold, not real money! It was totally removed from both tech tree and ingame shop.

Anyway, tough luck for me, but the issue remains.. shady stuff

And man, ofc they have to.. why wouldn't they?

Wow, you are right, just double checked it.

Well, that sucks, because I was thinking about buying it, too.

Thanx for the link Drago, but why should I check the German forum in the first place, since I don't speak any German. I suppose you were better informed than most players out there, since WG was not kind enough to make a note of this ANYWHERE in the English forum. And finally, why check the forums for such stuff/changes? Until recently, there were articles in the news section of the WG site, concerning the removal of (various) premium tanks from the tech tree.

Doesn't matter anyway, thank you for your time guys, still no WG answer

Premiums in the tech tree and the store are rotated constantly. Just because it's there, don't mean it will be there forever. Some have a long warning, others a rather short. And regardless of what way they let us know. We will still see topics like this.

 

Why was it removed? Who knows. More so then not it's due to declining interest in it. And removing it and selling less often spikes interest in the tank again. Those back in the store I suspect never did well on resent "rare" sales. It's been like that for years starting with the Panther M10 removal back in the day.

since wg messed up the tech tree so much with collectors stuff
it is impossible to see at a glance which tanks are availabe and which not.

 

now it takes 10x more mouse clicks to get an overview

 

I didn't even know that tonk was available for golds!

As far as I know/understand (and correct me if I am wrong), the 50TP Prot. is one of the strongest premium 8s in the game, even CCs are comparing it to the Defender. So I really don't think it is a matter of interest or popularity.

It was put on the tree with the last patch, along with the ELC EVEN 90 and the HWK 30. I strongly believe that they put it there by mistake and now they took it back ( why sell it in game for 10.700 gold, when you can charge over 40 Euros for it).

I don't freaking care about a pixel tank that I cannot buy with gold, can live without it, but as you can see, there is silence from WG all over, leaving the players trying to figure out by themselves, what happened.

This is my problem, not the removal per se ( although I was about to buy it )

Yeah my guess would be that it went in by mistake. 

 

Now they removed it.
