The premium tanks that are on the tech tree are stale. Why haven't you put new premium tanks on the tech trees that stay there long term? As of late every new premium tank is now a high pressure sales pitch...

because they don't people to use free gold from clan wars or tournaments to get the tanks. They want the $$$. They have expensive cars to pay for.

Not sure, but didn't the FV4202 become a tree premium this patch? Or was that the last one?

Because RareTM  \(◕ヮ◕)/

You're more likely to spend money if you can't reliably buy it any other time. 

Also lots of people have lots of free gold, and WG doesn't like giving tanks away for free.

In Canada, Subsections 74.01(2) and 74.01(3) of the Competition Act...  You can't have a sale of an item unless it sold a substantial volume at a higher price or was offered in good faith for a substantial period of time at the higher price.  So I'm not sure, but I all of a sudden see a tank like the VK 45.03 for "20%" off.  So either this tank was for sale for a long period of time or they sold a bunch to put the sale on.

 

Not sure how all this legal mumble jumble works in the online world, but some of these 'sales' are utter nonsense that might be deemed illegal here.  But corporate fines here start at $1,000,000

and max out at $15,000,000.

I like my FV42.02 (P), Great sniping tank with Pen better then the IS-3. I think of it as my "what would the Lowe be if it was a medium tank"

I will admit I only played it like 2 times after the buff and sold it, I may have to buy it back to try it out again. However the fact that I played it a handful of times pre buff and it left a very very bad taste in my mouth did not help my overall perception of the tank.

The 20% off is comparing it the price of the tank itself if you don't buy it as a bundle. So they have the tank by itself for the listed price. The Sale is how much you are saving on the regular value of the item if you buy it as a bundle. It seemed pretty clear.

I never played it pre-buff. I would not buy it back if you didn't like it the first time. I'm just going by my post-buff experience with the tank. It is slow but has a fantastic sniping gun.

The real question is why don't the British have a tier 8 Heavy Premium yet? The UK seems to get the short end of the stick on variety of Premium tanks.

They had a tier 7 heavy premium and it sucked too. The FV201 (A45)

 

Got it for free by doing missions at least :P

One odd thing that I did notice is that the FV42.02 (P) is now in the tech tree but not in the gift shop with the rest of the standard Premium tanks?? Odd.
