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.

You would have more credibility if you didn't shoot other players just for driving premium tanks on your own team. I have seen you do this to me.

 

Apology accepted.

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?

All of them rentals, bought with tourny gold or won in a contest or marathon.

 

I didn't pay cash for any virtual tanks because doing so would mean I that was supporting wallet warrior gaming.  I have integrity and refuse to support crap no matter how much fun I might have dominating people in overpowered premium tanks like Patriot and Skorpion G.  It is not about having money or not like some want to pretend.

I pretend nothing of the sort.  Money is money and everyone in the world in a semi-industrialized nation onward has to have it, use it, and oftentimes seeks to amass more of it.  I expect you have money, since you have a computer upon which to play this little diversion.

 

But you say you have integrity...  So, strong moral fiber, honesty; good character.

 

And then you metaphorically crap on others, insult them, belittle them and in general act like a grade A, First Class, Numero Uno Boor.  I sincerely doubt you were taught to be rude, so this is an acquired activity and/or obsession.

 

So I say to you, no sir, this is not integrity.  This is pure, unadulterated self-righteousness.  Plain and simple.  You have a crusade, a jihad, a vendetta against something YOU perceive as being ethically bankrupt.

 

If I were you, and I am glad I am not (since it has taken me many decades to get ME where I am [and I've no inclination to attempt another path at this stage]), I might look behind you.  You may notice that your financial vaults are full, perhaps even fit to burst.

 

But your coffers of kindness, courtesy, honor and class are bereft of anything even approximating a widow's mite.

 

And for that, you have my pity.  Even if I have naught but your scorn.

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.

I am looking to buy it tomorrow.  Expect an update when I do...

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.

That gold will be useless in your quest for a 112. If they ever do sell it again it will be in the store for money. It won't go back into the tech tree for gold because pref mm.

No, its about feeling like you have the moral high ground (you don't). People buy digital goods, get over it. Nobody cares that you "stuck it to the man" by not paying for a friggin tank in a video game.

30,000 battles at 4 minutes per battle is 83 DAYS you have played world of tanks. 

stop being a whining crapper and invest in your obvious hobby.

I agree OP, this is a very good deal (much like the year of prem deal, only that one was better).
 
I already own a Lowe and a WZ-111.  Together, they're worth 24,750 gold.  Add one of those slots, and it's 25050, which is about the price of gold for $100. 
 
I am getting an M4 Rev. for free, along with 7 days prem and 2 additional garage slots for something I already do every few months (i.e. pay $100 for gold).

its not self-righteous because the negative aspects of p2w wallet warrior gaming effect everyone, even people that don't play WoT, since they are making so much money that every major developer wants to copy their model.   WoT wouldn't have so many horrible glaring balance issues if WG didn't allow greed to trump gameplay.   Really boggles the mind why some of these kids think this  $60 virtual tank wallet warrior crap is acceptable when some of the most profitable F2P games operate on selling cosmetic items alone, or paying any amount of money for a cash exclusive tank.  Absolutely disgusting.  Yes, I have the moral high ground and a right to condemn what effects me and what I view as the cancer of videogames.

The only good deal they have EVER offered, other than the heavy grinds for free tanks, was the year of premium for less than half price.  Not saying that I haven't bought several of their bad deals, but I'm learning.  Oh, and I didn't buy the premium year either.  WG gets no more money from me unless that T-28 F-30 is really cheap.

31,950 plus the garage slots and premium days.  So it is a better deal then buying the 25,000 gold for $100.

 

p.s. sorry frumpy I have money to burn and will do with it as I please.

I once bought a $45 cigar which, literally, went up in SMOKE, so I have no problem spending money on this game.  Having worked hard and reached a point of having plenty of disposable income in fun.  I chuckle at the righteous indignation of some folks who take offense to how I spend my money.  All that aside, the Buffet deal seems good, but I'm still pretty happy slogging around in mid-tiers trying to learn the game better (though I did get my half-price Schwarzpanzer 58, TY Wargaming).

people who are irresponsible with their money are the main part of the problem.  These are the same selfish type of people who keeps black market organ stealer/dealers, elephant poachers, violent drug dealers and crack houses in business..  They don't care about anything or anyone else but their own petty personal gain. 

 

If these selfish and disgusting wallet warriors weren't so willing to buy power over others with cash, wargaming wouldn't be constantly allowing their greed to trump gameplay like they do, and we would have a much, much better game.

 

Just imagine the unknown thousands of players who quit once they saw how pay2win the game was with its pay2win premium ammo and overpowered pay2win premium tanks like KV-220. T-127, M22 locust, panzer2J, LefH and many more.

 

Remember they "don't nerf premium tanks", so that FCM pak still has a ridiculous 400 view range at tier 3, and special TD camo bonus when firing that they removed from all the non-premium TDs.

 

Balance isn't a thing in this game, and the disgusting wallet warriors are responsible for that.
