So almost every Premium tank I have is inferior to the free tanks I have by such a huge margin that I dont really even play them anymore. 

 

If WG wants people to continue buying them, they need to make sure the Premiums are at least EQUAL to the free tanks. 

 

Im not saying it should be pay to win, but it absolutely should not be "pay to lose". 

 

Some of us just dont have time to unlock all the free tanks, but we have money.

What you're suggesting is basically asking for power creeping premium tanks.

IS-6 used to be a beauty of a premium tank but now? who the hell plays it and likes it still.

So..........................................

 

I drive mine for the extra credit/exp I can earn in them.

 

I actually enjoy all of my Premium Tanks, even the KV-5...

 

I would like to see the Pref MM Tanks buffed to be non-pref, make tooning easier.

Disagree. Premium tanks are suppose to be a little weaker than the "free" tanks. They are for training crews and making credits at +50% more than a regular tank. Recently WOT made a mistake releasing premium tanks that were OP according to some like the Patriot and Defender.

I really wish you knew what you were talking about..

that's not the reason they are worse and not to mention there's a lot of premium tanks that are either balanced (these ones are bound to get powercrept eventually) or way better than their counterparts in the tech tree.

He is right on some level. Premium tank buffs and inception, should be evenly dispersed and spread - not dumped into 1-2 tanks.

 

For instance, more prem tanks like super P, MausBch, STG G should exist. Balanced machines that don't drastically alter battle. And less like skorp G, Lorraine, 252Y, Chrysler should exist. 

 

That that being said, loads of premium tanks like Toldi, AC1, Skoda T4O, Dickermax, CDC, CDA, KV12.2 could use buffing - as they generally stink. Especially with same tier prem comparisons, like Lorraine, lS2, T3485M, T127, T28F3O blowing the above out of the water.

I read somewhere that they are actually looking into what they're going to do with older premiums like the IS-6 which is pretty hard to get the base pen to work in in a lot of games now days.

I litterally just said not to make them better, just equal. How is that pay to win?

I strongly disagree! I grind every tank I play, so why should some player come along with a premium tank and negate my efforts? 

 

Bad idea.

 

I know we are given premium tanks by WG, but they are usually low tier and of no particular value. I usually play a few games then sell them. As for buying Premium tanks and not playing them because you consider them inferior, well no one is twisting your arm up your back! Stop being so bone idle and do the grind! You just illustrate perfectly the bad attitude of the average wallet warrior.

 

When I started playing the game, players with premium tanks were looked upon with a certain amount of contempt. Not without good reason. 

 

As for stating all premium vehicles are inferior, I'm sure there are those who may beg to differ. The overpowered nature of some vehicles has been well documented on the forum. Pity the OP didn't buy one of those!

 

Have fun, doing the grind.

 

Guffy.
