Latest offer.....

 

Schmalturm tier 6 Medium. On sale for £14.99 (also know to the players as the Starchaser, and usually released for May 4th (Star Wars Day)

 

Bundle also contains

1 Garage Slots (250 gold - £0.75)

Legendary Camo

7 Days Premium (1250 gold - £3.75)

 

Extras total value, £4.50, Tank value £10.49. Tier 6 premium tanks normal cost around 3000 gold (£9).

 

Now WG are advertising this bundle at a 20% discount, meaning the normal full price bundle would be £18.74 and the tank would cost £14.24.

 

Compared to other Tier 6 premiums sold recently it is a little more expensive, but you get the legendary camo which WG do charge extra for (not that you can get the tank without it).

 

It's a pretty good tank, and tier 6 is probably the first tier of tanks in the game it's worth getting decent premiums for, especially for tournaments where this tank is great at working ridges.

 

For the money, even with the discount, it's middle of the road. Your money can go much further in terms of earning potential on higher tier tanks. But it is a decent tank none the less.

M4A2E4 Sherman, tier 5 medium. On sale £9.99

 

Bundle also contains

1 Garage Slot (250 gold - 0.75p)

7 Days Premium (1250 gold - £3.75)

 

Extras total value, £4.50, Tank value £5.49

 

WG are listing this as 22% off meaning they would normally charge £12.80 and therefore value the full price tank at £8.30.

 

Tier 5 premium tanks typically cost around 2400 gold (£7.20), so they are pitching this a little higher than the tech tree equivalents.

 

Not a bad tank for its tier, but for premium tanks you need to be looking a few tiers higher to really get value from them. As it is, this is a garage filler. Have a few fun games, but not a tank you'll want to spend your time credit grinding in.

 

The bundle at the cost specified is pretty decent, you do pay the extra for the premium time (whether you want it or not).

Girls Und Panzer specials......

 

Hetzer Kame, tier 4 TD. On sale for £4.99

Panzer IV Anko Special, tier 5 medium.  On sale for £6.99

Kuro Mori Mine, tier 6 Heavy. On sale £9.99

 

Triple Bundle (all of the above). On sale for £22.99

 

Each tank comes with the following

1 Garage Slot (250 gold - 0.75p)

Special Camo

 

Extras total value, £0.75

 

The bundle also adds 30 days of premium time (2250 gold - £6.75)

 

Tier 4 premium tanks typically cost around 1500 gold (£4.50)

Tier 5 premium tanks typically cost around 2400 gold (£7.20)

Tier 6 premium tanks typically cost around 3000 gold (£9.00)

 

Each bundle is shown as being discounted, so let's look at the value in real terms.

 

Hetzer Kame, 6% (so originally worth £5.31). So the asking price is reasonable for a tier 4, though to be honest, it isn't a great tank.

Panzer IV Anko Special 13%(so originally worth £8.03). This is pretty decent value for money, and is actually a good fun tank for the tier, though tier 5 is a bit nondescript within the game.

Kuro Mori Mine, 12% (so originally worth £11.35. This one is a little bit overpriced (only a little), but this is an extremely capable tank at tier 6. And as there are tournaments in tier 6 you often find this on the battlefield due to its excellent side scraping capabilities. A very worthwhile purchase.

 

Bundle, 25%, so originally worth £30.65 but watch out, as the discount really only gives you the premium time for free. If you want to buy all three tanks, then definitely get the bundle as it costs the same as buying the other 3 tanks on their own, but if you only want one or two of the tanks then just buy them stand alone.

 

Of the three, the Kuro is the stand out tank with the Panzer IV Anko being the runner-up for a bit of fun.

Special camo for Ha-Go is 150 Gold...
Honestly i think this is very good offer and also very reasonably priced... and without any booster, gold or etc. other stuff which would make the tank x times more expensive.
Hehe Now i have GUP tanks also.... Kuro is, must have, if you play tournament and on Lvl 6...

Latest offer.....

 

Type 64 tier 6 Light. On sale for £28.99

 

Bundle also contains

1 Garage Slots (250 gold - £0.75)

6 Equipment slots (relative costs - rough cost 90,000 credits ~ 225 gold ~ £7 (or more if they have assumed timers would be used, could be double this cost at £14)

 

Extras total value, £14.75, Tank value £14.24. Tier 6 premium tanks normal cost around 3000 gold (£9).

 

Now WG are advertising this bundle at a 27% discount, meaning to them it's actual worth is £46.

 

Now, only a short while ago, they presented the Stridsvagn tier 6 medium with 6 slots unlocked, but only charged £20.49 for that bundle with a similar discount.

 

You are getting a £9 tank for £29...just to have the slots unlocked.....This tank is massively over padded, and of the two, the Sdridsvagn was not only the better value, it was the more fun tank to play as well.

 

You are also paying for the uniqueness of this tank, it was only available as a very rare reward in the blitz fair at Christmas so very few people have it. I'd say avoid this unless you are an absolutely ardent collector.

New offer out today.....

 

Type 62 Dragon - tier 7 Medium on sale for 12,000 gold (roughly £36)

 

The tank bundle also contains

1 Garage Slot (250 gold - 0.75p)

Dragon legendary camouflage

 

Tier 7 premium tanks normal cost around 4900 gold (£14.70)

 

As you can see, £36 for a tank at a tier where other premiums cost £14.70 is pretty steep. This is a very good tank though, and a lot of fun. It is priced up due to the rare camo, but way beyond its actual value.

 

I can't honestly support this from a value for money perspective though, it's way over priced.

 

** Addendum. This tank was previously available in February for £40.99 - Check this thread for details

New out today.....

 

Type 59, Tier 8 medium. On sale for 13000 gold (£39 equivalent)

 

Bundle also contains

1 Garage Slots (250 gold - £0.75)

Ding legendary camouflage

 

I'll start by comparing this to the T34 tier 8 heavy that was put on sale a short time ago, for only 9300 gold, and also contained a legendary camo and 7 free days of premium time in that figure. They are pricing the Type 59 £12 higher than that tank at the same tier.

 

The type 59 is another legendary tank in the game, and is great fun to play....but it is not worth £39 which is about double the value of any tier 8 tech tree premium tank...and all you are getting over those is the premium camo.

 

If you have to have it, then fine.....but it is way over priced for its tier.

I don't have the Type 62, and I'd like to have it but only for a price comparable with the normal prices in the tech tree (and some extra for the dragon camo). Otherwise I won't buy anything.

 

Type 59 I have from the Blitz fair and I suck it in, honestly. It's not the tank, just me :D I need to get better before I can play that tank decently. The Type 64 is just a mediocre alternative for the Bromwell, which was priced for 15 euros a couple of months ago. Thus, no need to buy the 64. There are also a lot of other tier 6 lights that are just as good like the T21.

... Type 64 are overhyped...reload is too long, accuracy awful (u will hit anything but the tank u aim), IMHO its fast (but gain speed slowly) card box... Honestly nothing to write home about..  After tier 5 all lights and meds basicly are the same.. IMHO.. so VK28 And Shmal stay the best... As ARL44 and Kuro in heavy end

I think WarGaming should sell whatever it is they’re smoking, they would make more profit that way!

There is a point to note about the 59 and 62 they are very good credit earners... 

Old dog with new tricks ...  and a few tanks. Still mostly sh*te at this game

T26E4 SuperPershing and T23E3 are not worse and cost 45 to 60% less than this Chinese robbery...

If you compare these deals to the recent  Berlin deal where  all tanks also had special cammo it doesn’t look good. And you got different play styles.TD, Med x2 and Heavy.

What’s the market like in China that their premiums are overpriced?Hardly ever see their crate premiums on the eu server.

ok i have to admit i bought the type 59, i just wanted a med for crd grinding and so far im very impressedi had 2 games with both 2.3k and 2.5k dmg and i nearly got 100k crd on each (with is6 it would be like 60k or 70k). this is just perfect, if you are tired grinding with heavy tanks. its worth it IMO.
