I was looking at getting a premium account, but how do I upgrade, I must be overlooking it.

1) Buy gold, outside of the game.
2) Buy premium, inside the garage.

>Step one, buy gold.  2500 gets you a month.

>Step two, click the premium button (extreme top right in the garage)

>Step three, pick how long you want to be premium (2500 for a month is the most economical) and press OK.

>Step four, enjoy the premium account.

I have a question maybe someone can help me? Is it true that you get gold every day while your premium is active?

So if I buy 3000 gold @ $14.95 and then a 1 month premium for 2500 gold - I will receive gold every day for that month? (150 gold per day?)

Thanks - I've searched quite a few times and cannot find any info on this. I'm having a lot of fun with this game and would like to show support!

No, that is completely wrong rumour. You don't get any daily gold for having premium account.

Thank you for the response. I saw a post talking about 150 daily gold from around December last year, I guess that no longer applies.

In Closed Beta and Open Beta we got 150 gold day so that we could get premium tanks, and in general get all of the tanks faster to test them out by using premium, and platoons was also not an issue, neither was converting xp. After release in April however the game requires you to buy gold with real money just like any other f2p game and their microtransaction stuff. And if you're wondering, everyone's accounts got wiped so EVERYONE started from square one again unless they prepurchased gold in one of the packages that were available and got a few premium tanks.

I'd hold off guys until after the patch tomorrow.  They have even said on the website to refrain from purchasing things during the patch, and we nearing that hour.  Game is going to be down most of the day it sounds like tomorrow anyways.  If it were me, I'd just wait until after the patch, and then buy the gold, and premium then.

This is copied from their statement about tomorrows patch:  Attention! Due to the patch being released World of Tanks game server and all the related services will be unavailable. We strongly recommend you to abstain from payments during the period stated.

Just my .2 cents

Good luck.  :)

The 24h is real time, not game time.
