deals WG has offered in a long time (Yes there is the premium year also).  To give you some

perspective let's first cover the prices of the tanks and items being offered in it for $100

 

M4R - 7200 Gold

Lowe - 12500 Gold

WZ-111 - 12250 gold

2 Garage slots(?) - 300 Gold (Add in another 150 if it is missing one)

1 Wk Prem - 1250 Gold

 

Total in gold:  33650 gold (Missing Garage slot added)

Gold Per dollar price: 336.5

Gold total in Vehicles only:  31950

 

So for all these vehicles you are getting one heck of a deal even if you already own one of

them.  This is better then 17% Gold bonus sales with the bonus being 27.8% over normal

price.  However is worth it to buy for tanks alone?  Let's examine them...

 

M4R:  Probably the biggest winner out of the bunch.  It's buffs were massive and pretty much

allows you to play the tank as it should be played - a tank destroyer.  Actually a competent

tank now...

Lowe:  I'm not going to lie.  The Lowe has been a Female Dog ever since it was buffed.  I

even have trouble with occasional gold round due to it's armor buffs.

WZ-111:  WZ-111 ehhh....   It's LFP can still be penned rather easily but it handles more like

it's standard Tier 9 equivalent.  It's the only Chinese Heayy for sale though since the 112 is 

now embargoed.

 

Verdict:  If you own all the tanks (Which might be a rare instance)  BUY THIS PACKAGE!  If

you don't, consider picking it up as the tanks in the package have been nicely buffed to

competent level, especially if you need one of the tanks...

Very tempting to get 3 tanks for that price and play the heck out of them :-)

its funny that so many  of these wallet warrior kids think paying $60 for a virtual tank is some kind of good deal.

 

the Kool aid around here seems to come with a chemical lobotomy.

Has it ever crossed your mind that 60 bucks may not be very much money to some people?

yea, and I can also think of 1000 better things to do with $60 than buying virtual tanks off the top of my head. .  Its really pretty pathetic the lack of imagination some of these wallet warriors have.

Please enjoy your economics lesson of the day, kid.  We give you the ability to play this game for however little money you make.  Also affords you the option to whine on forums about it.  From all: you're welcome.  :)

Since you are starting to sound trollish I will keep response short.   Your thousand better things are your view of entertainment value for the dollar.   Each of us have an entertainment budget.    Maybe 1 of those thousand things for me is buy a tank.   To feel you have the ability to determine what gives entertainment pleasure to someone and not understand it will be different for all sounds a little elitist to me.   But I think I will just call you a troll for now:), or a jealous individual who doesn't have money for the tank.

Excellent deal.  I already have the Lowe and M4 Rev so this is basically a free 112 since I'd buy the gold eventually anyway.  Gold is set for a while now.

 

Sorry for hobo troll who thinks that spending money for entertainment is bad.

For some this is a hobby, people churn money through casinos or build model aircraft than smash on their maiden flight. It's called entertainment and that's what people pay for (go buy a NHL game ticket or one for a Superbowl game and see how much that runs you).

 

Technically speaking everything you experience is turned into electrical impulses in your brain, it doesn't matter if the stimuli is solid matter or photons.

frumpy...  You're a good player.  You've got 30k matches under your belt.  To hell with Kool-aid, why you gotta spray Hater-aid?

 

Besides, YOU have plenty of premium tanks your damn self.  Just scrolling down your list of tanks (impressive, by the way), and I see Type 62, Type 64, friggin' Type 59!!! (lucky so-and-so), M46 KR, Super Pershing, Mutz, Panther 8,8...  Even Chi-Nu Kai and AC 4 Experimentals (really?)...  Let me see...  Um, T-54 mod.1, T-44-100 (you could have earned that one), FV 201 (A45)?, Heavy Tank No. VI, T14 (really?), FCM 50 t, Churchill III, TOG II* (I mean, I have one too, and I got mine for free...  Did you pay money for this?  Is this why you hate so much?), Löwe, KV-5, IS-6, Dicker Max, E 25?, AT 15A (hell, even I don't have one of those), StuG IV (so you do the missions...), T 28 HTC (you do the missions quite a bit), Type 55A (Damn son...  A bit of an over-achiever, aren't we?), SU 100Y, FCM 36 Pak 40...

 

I missed a bit but I wanted to make a point.  You could have earned some of your premiums...  You could have won some of them...  But to say you don't ever open YOUR wallet is either disingenuous or...  You have one HELL of a sugar-daddy...

 

In Southern California, $60 is going to an IMAX theater and getting a popcorn and a drink, twice...  So, let me think...  Six hours of experience (where the combined salt and oil from the popcorn and the sodium from the soda might require one to invest in a portable dialysis machine) OR...  Playing with a tank in a digital game for as long as the game exists.

 

Everquest I, City of Heroes, Star Wars Galaxies...  People spent money on these games and now they are gone.  Are they 'wallet warriors' too?

What else could I do with $60... oh, wait, I already did them all.

I already have the Revalorisé, but that would just mean all the other stuff plus 7200 gold...  Hmmm....

Oh geez... really?

 

I'm one of these "wallet warriors".  Whenever someone makes ignorant comments like that, I bet those are the people that go out and don't think twice about plunking down $100 for a dinner or playing $25 for a movie, including drinks and snacks. On a $ per hour of enjoyment ratio, buying these pixel tanks is actually a better way for one to spend their money and have it stretch. 

 

Maybe you don't have the money to buy pixel tanks. That is fine. I do. I love buying pixel tanks. I'm a 40 year old kid when I play this game. I spent 20 years in my career to be a business owner and respected in my profession. So, I worked hard for these pixel tanks and I will continue to buy them and play the heck out of them. 

 

oh..and lack of imagination. Um..I also distance run. I just completed in a 200 mile 12 person team relay and just signed up for another. I also backpack, mountaineer, play guitar, expedition kayak, hike, etc... you get the picture? No lack of imagination here or lack of diversity. I've seen and done more than most people will ever see and do.

Interesting numbers for the gold equivalent when purchasing the package.

 

I would however like to hear from someone who had bought the package and already had the 3 tanks mentioned in their garage already. Seeing as it is a sale in the eyes of Wargaming  I am reluctant to believe that they would give you the full gold value of the tanks as compensation.


 

If any player is thinking of buying the package and are already in possession of the 3 tanks, please post here what you received in gold.
