If you sold the tank as a stand alone without the fluff, I'd buy it.  As it is, no bueno.  No buckos.
 
$20 or $25 for just the tank, crew, and garage slot?  You got my monies.
 
$40 entry for a tank and a whole bunch of stuff one can have with an hour or three of gameplay?  Absolutely not.

I would pay for this switch on my GF tanks.

I'm sure there are some guys that like being ripped-off by paying for stuff (bundle content such as camo net etc.) that can be earned by just playing the game, sort of like some people like to be spanked by a dominatrix chick... I'm neither so no sale until WG NA realizes that many people are actually capable of critical thinking and know a bad deal when they see one.

​I've said it before, I'll say it again... Wargaming needs to make the Premium Shop a la carte. Problem solved.

That would definitely be a good option but what WG wants is to create a fictitious shortage of virtual merchandise and this is where all the people that are impulse buyers etc. open-up the wallets, By the way virtual merchandise actually is not capable of ever being in short supply as it is created as needed by the end user once first instance is designed by the company.

Great timing to put this on sale when I'm grinding the SU-152 for On-Track!

 

I hope we get that swap option soon!

SWAP! Lets get rid of the gawd awful WGL skin forever. So many great artists at WG how the WGL skin made it is a real head scratcher.

 

I dont mind having a WGL skin, but how about a good one. Less billboard, more tank.

Any chance of the M41 90 and other store only tanks entering the tech tree for gold?

 

I've more than enough gold for the next year, no need or inclination to buy anything where I have to get extra gold in a bundle or, for me at least, useless things I already have (like crews, equipment, garage slots or boosters). I'd just prefer to buy from the tech tree.

I'm confused. The news article says it's available for three days, the premium shop says only one day and the monthly overview says both?

They always should offer a bare bones version for sure. My justification on this one is If your average tier 6 is $20, tier 7 is $34 and tier 8 is $40 to $50... $38 seems OK to me for a kind of rare unique OP-ish tier 7 tank I have wanted for a long time (without the big white GF stripe!) and with a decent load of gold i will use on camo and crews and equipment that might only take 3-4 hours to earn but now i can spend that on an unlocked tank i am grinding. Is a $38 13 57 going to make the credits and xp my $40 Mutz makes? No. Will it be just as fun? probably more. [update] Bought it, put my 13 90 crew in it, the vents and optics that came with it and V Stab., played it, love it.

In April of 2016, Wargaming offered the 13 57 GF for $24.99.  If they weren't doing another obvious money grab, the 13 57 would also be available for $24.99 or less considering it doesn't have camo included in the skin.

Selling only bloated packages when WG NA is dying... No thanks.

So let me get this straight, people are upset that a highly hyped and sought after tank WG wanted to give everyone an opportunity to buy doesn't cost what it did 2 years ago before it got "buffed" and became "all the rage"? What do you guys do when gas prices go up?

 

Some just can't be pleased...

This only seems fair.

Agreed, if this becomes possible on NA all original owners of the tank should consider this:

 

The logo camo was never the highlight of the tank but after today will become the only thing that differentiates the original players from the "hype train" version sold today. The new plain one will definitely look cooler with a decent paint job but I for one will always keep the infamously ugly logo for the badge of honor it has now become...

 

 

If this is of little meaning to you I'm sorry I've wasted your time. :)
