The thing is, I was thinking of buying some gold for the T26E4 Super Pershing. I don't need 30.000 gold right now but I´m pretty sure I'll be playing WoTB for for the foreseeable future so I'll be using the gold at some point.

 

I can afford £100 and, as I wrote in another post about the Churchill VI, I'd still rather be buying tanks this way than having to gamble on the gatcha crates.

 

Looking forward to the Chieftain/T95, Churchill Mk. VI, AC IV Sentinel, 50.000 Gold + 24 months Premium Bundle for £200 later this year :teethhappy:

 

 

 

 

Its your £100 ..... might as well give it to WarGreedy in return for pixels that you will never own, and with all the others who get this bundle will just encourage WarGreedy to do more overpriced bundles.


 

Let me remind you £100 ..... seems the value of £100 isn't was it used to be

 

But then I don't play this game anymore ... so my reasoning is about as useful as a fart in the wind

It's a question of perspective. I'm going out to dinner with my wife tonight. The bill for the two of us will be around £100. Tomorrow I'll be hungry again and have nothing to show for it once the toilet is flushed. 

 

The Type 64 will still be in my WoTB garage.

It’s very true that some customers encourage WG to continue in their path. Although the fact that there are no real competitors is also a very important factor.

Tell me about it. It's 6-8 bucks in Copenhagen. Suddenly, instant never tasted so good. 

 

Times like this, I just go back to my favorites—Pattons, Types, and ATs. Today, I decided to blow spare parts on my Tortoise put it back into rotation.

The funny thing is that I can't bring myself to spend real money in WoT Console... yet...

 

But wow... what a lovely selection of tanks.

Bad choice

Too much avidity to not sell type 64 alone ......

You will loose more money to try to exploit it with this kind of bundle than if you would be fair with your loyal customers.....

Forget U WG

 

Ps : you should question you yourself when customers like me say this to you ..... remember : I have all your tanks in my hangar unless Kv220, IS6 Fearless and T95-Chieftain ...... more « loyal » we aren’t very much .....

See that’s fine, 40 tanks for 450 that’s 11.25 a tank. Here it’s 36.66 for a tank and there is a minimum buy of 3 tanks.

I really dont think this is such a crazy price. You get 3 Premium tanks plus you can buy a 4th Tier 8 Premium tank for 7500 gold. This leaves you with 2500 gold plus 30 days of premium time which is worth 20 quid for itself. So you are effectively paying 90 quid for 2 tier 8, one tier 7 and one tier 6 tank. Or 22.50 per tank. That seems fine to me, dont you think so? The reason why i wont buy it is that I really dont care about the Type 64 plus I already have the Mod1 so I dont need the Type59. But for someone new to chinese tanks it seems like its quite decent value.

 

btw I know people are angry that you cant just buy the Type 64 but WG has really done worse than that plus the 64 seems to be extremely lackluster anyway.

The problem isn’t the real price of Type 64 or the value of the bundle. The problem is that we can only buy Type 64, if we buy a bunch of other products that some of us (me for example) doesn’t have any use for. 

 

I have over 60 premiums including all the tech tree premiums that interest me. I also have all the tier 10s that interest me, except 121 which I’m working on.

 

So what would I do with 30000 gold?

 

Edit: As previously mentioned, it would be fine if there was Type 64 only bundle for 1/3 of the bundle price which is €36.66.

As I said I do understand it and it is annoying. However, at least overall the package is a fair deal for those who are interested in all tanks (or the gold) which is already something for WG these days. Thats all I wanted to say.

Pffff ..... this is a great reason why I left this game ..... WarGreedy again with no shame at all,

 

Not directed at you Peter_Moosey ..... but let's call it £100 (£99.99 really WG !!!! 1 pence FFS !!!!!) for pixels that you will never own and that can be nerfed when ever WarGreedy see fit to do so.

 

Stupid will never go away, WarGreedy will always find suckers to buy these stupid bundles ....

 

But why do you want anything they sell? Simply play the game, enjoy it with friends and if an opportunity comes along that you might fancy take advantage of it. If it doesn't don't let that take the fun out of the game. Now, if you don't have fun anymore, not playing is self explanatory.

Of course there is a reason they can't sell the Type 64 on its own. Its only a month ago some people were gambling away small fortunes trying to win it at the Blitz Fair. Imagine you spent a lot of gold on gatcha crates only to see the tank in the shop for £25 a month later.
