I would love the ability to "rent" a tank
that's one of the major uses of the "test server"

expect a new test server to pop up any time within the next 4 weeks

great for test driving premium tanks and deciding if you like a proposed regular research tank line

XP: 245 (With Premium):XP:3,546   (Lolz)

I think you need to look at your maths.  A 50% increase from 245 is 367.5  :Smile_amazed:

LOL at the EOW stuff. Thanks for the link.

"- regarding the earlier statement about needing 100k "petition signatures" for the devs to recognise a mass problem, it wasn't meant seriously (duh), what was meant is that the devs rely almost purely on statistics and not "community feelings" about some things - "but if you want to make a petition - go ahead, or you can call american bombers and force democracy upon us".

I remember when we only had 2 free slots. I'll take the 5 we have now and not complain about it.

It's highly unlikely any more gold items will start being available for credits.. WG isn't going to remove their income source.  The gold rounds for credits was actually a move to generate revenue.. The main reason being. The vast majority of players go broke fast shooting credit based premium rounds, but it gives them a taste of what they can do.. Meaning if they want to do it a lot, regularly, then they have to open their wallets.

There'd be no incentive to make people open their wallets making other gold based commodities available for credits.

Untrue. They did it for e-sports. At the most, we may see gold consumables for credits in the future.

Man you need to keep up with the Q&A, especially the russian forums, and EU forums...

2) WG's CEO in an interview stated that WG makes it "Profits" from Premium accounts...(Not Gold ammo, or consumables, etc) and that even though the RU server is HUGE..the NA server is the LARGEST source of revenue for WG..

Also untrue. If you re-read the interview, you'll see that he is talking about ARPPU (Average Revenue Per Paying User). What he is saying is that the average NA paying customer usually buys slightly more than the average paying Russian customer. Some basic math would clearly show that the revenues generated by the NA server are insignificant in comparison to the Russian server.

I've sort of lost track of the number of tank slots I've gotten over the year and a half I've played.  I think I've gotten 2 from just having the french and brits added to the game, one more when the KV got split, and another when the Panther and Panther 2 got downtiered.  So 4 free slots?  oh yah, one for the Tetrarch tank givaway and another from a german premie givaway.  So 6 slots in the past year and a half without spending a dime.

I'd say just be patient, WG has been pretty generous about giving out slots.  I've only paid for 2 out of the 8 extra slots I've gotten.  One of those was from the T14 when I bought it half price and the other was during a "half off" sale.  I've honestly spent more gold on expanding my barracks than I have garage slots.

So no to the slots for credits deal.  Neither is pay to win.  Especially given how generous they are with slots already....

A new player will start with 6, but no more...

I did find it on page 12 of the link...

- regarding the (contested by some) thicknesses of M103 armor: "the numbers were provided by Americans from the Patton museum"
- at this moment, Windows 8 is not officially supported for WoT
- there are "small" precautions taken because Wargaming expects more players to play this weekend
- there will apparently be a second French TD line
- there won't be a decal possibility to put decal "white lines" on the barrel of your tank gun for kills (as it happened real life) because there is no limit to kills the barrel would simply end up being white
- deep water does not "eat" shells
- there is a proposal lying in the development office to actually introduce the possibility to (individually) check winrate and other statistics of the players you are in the battle with from inside the game
- there is a distant possibility that "gold" consumables will be available for credits too

- there is no plan to further give out garage slots for free in connection with introducing new nations
