I have to admit, I find it funny that you won't take back the Kannonenjagdpanzer.

 

Hello Sgt_King_Gunner,

 

We have special plans for the kannonenjagdpanzer in the future. We are excluding the tank from the trade-in feature due to these plans.

I am unable to select "trade in".

Also, can we trade in multiple tier 6 premiums tanks to get a tier 8 premium?

 

Hello eragon0319,

 

You need to have enough gold to purchase the tank in order to use the trade-in feature. You can only trade in one tank for each transaction.

Why are NONE of my American premiums available for trade-in when every other tank in the other tech trees are?

 

Hello Vauntin,

 

It should be possible to use the trade-in feature for all tanks listed in the news article. Could you please send me a screenshot of your garage or explain what issue you are seeing when you try to use the trade-in feature? Thanks!

I can't do a trade in from the tech tree. Need some help.

 

Hello ER_Hero,

 

Can you send me a screenshot of your garage showing the issue or explain what is happening? With more information I should be able to assist you.

 

Please note, you need to have space free in the barracks and enough gold to purchase the tank in order to do the trade-in.

hmmmmm.... why can't we just sell the tank and use that $$ to buy another? What kind of special deal is it if we get only half price of the trade in and get a new premie at full price?

 

 

Hello Charlie_Tuna,

 

When you sell a tank, you receive credits and not gold. The trade-in feature is the only way to use the indicated gold value of the tank to reduce the cost of a different Premium tank in the tech tree.

50% is too low for a trade in. Should be 75%.

Hey Dance

 

good to hear that. KJP could use some special plans. And this explains why it was left out. 

 

Thanks for responding

Pointless discount is pointless...

 

I want to back down FROM higher tier premiums I never should have purchased in the first place, not stay the same tier or go even higher.

Alright I see whats going on here with WG's scummy system.

It's a cash grab in disguise.

First off you have to have to gold price of the tank in order to use the trade in system, so therefore if you don't have gold you have to buy some of the equivalent amount.

Secondly you are only getting 50% value from your tank and you can only trade in one so really honestly it's not that worth it unless you have a tier 8 that you hate and really want another one.

And of course its only tier 6 and above, I mean I have some tier 5 prems I don't play anymore and would like to have another one instead, then the trade system would be more worth it.

Why are tanks that were won either via missions or clan wars allowed on the list?

 

Sorry, but premium tanks from clan wars or missions should not be included... they never bought them in the first place.

 

Because they're just trying to get you to give them money for nothing to begin with.  If they can get you to give them $20 that you weren't going to give them, it makes no difference to them which premium tank you have.  Doesn't cost them a damn thing.

Of course it costs them something. 

 

Some number of people who would have made a cash purchase will instead get a discount and spend less. 

 

They likely are hoping that the overall volume of sales is higher because of this

On top of that, lets say you wanna buy a T34 for 12,000 gold.

You have to purchase the 12,000 gold first which then lets you use the trade in feature.

So you trade in your tank and get a T34. WG has lost nothing because you already purchased that other premium tank.

This is some seriously dirty [edited].

This offer needs to extend to ALL premium vehicles in the store....not just those in the tech tree....otherwise it's a pointless gesture. People have had the availability of the premium vehicles currently in the tech tree for years....if they don't have them already they either have had them in the past and don't want them anymore, or just don't want certain ones in the first place. The ones that would attract the most attention in this offer currently are only available in the Premium Shop....so that means they're not a part of this offer. Thus rendering the offer pointless as those tanks, such as the new Lorraine 40T, can't currently be traded for but are the most sought after.

 

And what's the point of needing enough gold on-hand PRIOR to trading in? That completely negates the whole purpose of a trade-in. You don't go to a car dealer with a vehicle to trade-in because you have enough money to pay for the new car already....you take the trade-in specifically because you DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY CASH for it.

 

C'mon, WG....you got the right idea, just put a little more thought into what you're trying to do!

 

It wouldn't be too awful difficult to do, you've already attached a half value gold return on "used" tanks.....go one step further and attach a real world monetary value to that gold and allow it to be discounted from tanks in the Premium Shop. When you click on a tank to buy in the Premium Shop, before the "purchase options" drop down comes up, have a drop-down that asks if you have a trade-in. You already have to be signed into the website to make the purchase to begin with so the Store is already looking at your game account and can see what tanks you have that are eligeable for trade-in. Put a checkmark beside the tank you want to trade and the website can automatically deduct the real world monetary equivalent of the gold trade-in value from the purchase of the new tank.

 

And why in the world would you make this a limited time offer? You're wasting time...both yours and ours. Make it a normal, permanent part of how the Premium Shop works. It should have been implemented that way years ago anyway!

Tanker!

 

Have an Premium tank that you don't use anymore? Want to trade it in for a different Premium tank? Now's your chance!

 

From now until May 15, 2017 at 04:20 PT / 07:20 ET, trade in any tier VI-VIII Premium tank when you buy a new Premium vehicle from the tech tree of the same or higher tier. When trading in, half of the old tank’s value in Gold will be deducted from the price of the new vehicle. Only one vehicle can be traded in at a time.

 

Find out all the details, including which tanks are eligible for trade-in, in the news article here!

 

Please WG let us trade multiple tanks for the one we really want... as it is, not very useful.

I am Convinced the player base is a bunch of spoiled whinny snot nosed children that would find fault in anythng. If you dont like it keep you yap shut and don't participate. The rules are the rules.  It's a business they want to make money why do you complain about that.  It's the basis of our economy.

Pathetic

I was excited for this until I realized that you need the full cost, in gold, of the tank you want to buy before you can trade something in.  What is the point?
