When the FV215B 183 was retired. Were was it stated its only worth 1000 sell price when I actually paid 6.1mill. I rushed to get this thing before it was gone blew 800k in free exp and almost 14 million in credits, I never  went down the British TD line and thought it be good to have one.

is this what they do to all retired tanks cause that's not right.

Not that I'm was thinking of selling it but wow only 1000 credits if you do???

They do it as it's now a "reward tank" and it also makes it significantly cheaper to buy back through support as opposed to the 3.X million that you'd normally need. 

 

And really, why sell tier X tanks, it's the single biggest loss of credits you can have through a tank sale. 

 

 

 

 

And really WG didn't force you to spend gold/credits to rush for it. They gave a pretty lengthily heads up this was happening.

You still have your credit/xp investment in the form of the Badger. Don't pretend they somehow screwed you out of something. They did this because they didn't want to hand out the extra 3 million credits to all the people who sold them, and then have to deal with support tickets from people who decide they want their tank back someday in the future.

Well, y'all bought the badger and the 183 was free (or reverse, your pick). Not sure why you expected 2 full price t10's for the price of 1.

It's a tier X no one can ever get again. Why would you sell it?

Totally missing the point I still paid for the FV the in-game (with credits and exp i earned)way so sell price should be 3 mill. WOT shouldn't care if I sold it or not. The tank was bought for a price it should be sold for fair price and since it was retired if you purposely sold it you shouldn't get it back. Cause i wish I could buy back my waffentrager auf e100, no that one is  gone right. I rember grinding for the waffentrager and gettin 2 months use out of it and having it retired. Another shameful act from WOT. Same for the FV.  If the badger was free so be it it should have the 1000k sale price of all that had it replaced. so now all that  want an FV cant. Once again selling it would have been my choice and would have been happy if it was said cant get it back not just wrongfully making the sale price 1000. IN-GAME credits

You paid for a tier 10. You got 2 tier 10's, one of which sells for normal price, one is a reward tank that sells for cheap.

Just wished they would have done the same with the Grille 15 vs the Waffle. The waffle could have been just like the death star is today.

I really want my waffle back.

I also only had my Waffle a short time before it was boxed up. Looking at my stats no one in their right mind could say I (it) was OP. I'm no Unicum. I'm more dangerous at 54% in my T95 than I was in my Waffle. 

In light of new tanks like the Obj 268v4 or that new Obj 726 there is no reason our Waffles shouldn't be credited back to us as a Special Tank like the 183 etc. Also, WG needs to keep adding tanks and content to keep the game rolling (and profitable), I don't see the power creep of new and more creative tanks ending. 

Guys if you truly want your Waffles back you have to take a page from the #NeverWaffle players and contact WG with your constructive argument why we should have our tanks back (that we earned). Submit tickets periodically. Post in the forums, YES we will get abuse from the trolls who don't like being killed a certain way but our voice counts just as much as theirs. Unless they pull a paycheck from WG we are all on the same level. Just remind them the tank isn't magic, it's not infallible.

China has the tank, Console has the tank, somehow they seem to manage... Why shouldn't we have the same treatment? Make your voices heard, don't give up.

speaking on what WG WOT is becoming they are bring out fictitious concept tank that never saw day in lite. I like a new tank every once in a while but its getting ridiculous, Heres a though how about stop making tank and START MAKING MAPS!! Not the type of hill lemming corridor funneling maps that WOT like to make but a real obstacle map  with more than 3 paths and a killing field. Would rather see a new map than a new tank any day. And please stop limiting where we can go on maps for GODS SAKE were in tanks. There are many maps where you can clearly see  reworked areas to keep you out of certain positions. Little mounds of rubble you cant drive over and steep grades you can climb in some spots and lesser grades you cant in others.

 

Said this many time whats needed a full urban map all buildings 2 stories or less no large blocks rows of buildings, a full on Forest map with no more than 50 meter visibility no center killing field no hill on that will make you radar.  and you should only be able to see tank on your radar than another teammate in radio range can see. this is not how it works now.

 

kudos to Cardboardjedi i think he gets it

I just took it out for it's very first game and nuked 4 tanks, bounced over a thousand from a Jgpz E100. Had a blast and only lost 4,500 silver.

 

(no gold was used in harming these tanks)

You can't, it's gone, they announced it 6 months and again 3 months and again 1 month before it was removed.
