Here is a list of tanks I selfishly want to be put on sale:

 


 

Pz.Kpfw. 38H 735 (f)

I have no idea why I want this thing.

Probably just because I can't.

 



SU-76I - My prediction for Christmas 2018.

I know it's considered OP.

I don't care what it does to newbs.

Starting out in WoT is easier than seven years ago.

Even if nobody does that anymore. It's not my fault.

 


 

A-32

Promises here are paper thin already...

I would bet there would be more happy customers than angered old salts.

 


 

Pz.Kpfw. IV hydrostat. - My guess for the next 'Rare' sale tank.

Not considered OP.

Just sell it already.

 



Pz.Kpfw. V/IV

Again, promises be damned.

The old skewls have the 'Alpha' version anyway.

 


 

M4A2E4 Sherman

Not that anyone really needs another M4....

But it's on most collectors lists.

 


 

Object 244

I mean come on. 

How long has this tank been around?

It's not even categorized as premium.


 

OK guys, let me have it.

 

Forum's dead anyway.

Might as well start a flame war!

 

:izmena:

 

p.s. Shameless plug:  

 

If you replace my name with yours in the link below, you can look at your premium tank history.

If they released a chieftain tomorrow, thousands upon thousands would grind for it and spend gold. But they won't do it.  Instead they peddle weird made up tanks that nobody wants.

Hydrostat is sold fairly regularly.

Yeah, last time it was on sale I shrugged.

But of course, it was bundled.

Only tank I really what thats a premium (and not a CW reward) is the ISU-130.

Yeah, my list doesn't include any tanks that are earned in game.

That's different because I could dedicate myself to getting them and do so.

There's quite a few others people regularly beg for, but in Russia the Customer is always wrong.

I mean... except for the T23E3, which was a CW reward.

Since they sold the M6E2A1 again, there's nothing much stopping them selling the A-32 and the Pz V/IV now.

Ahh I didn't know that.

I was wondering why it was off my radar.

 

Learning.

It’s time for them to put the Panzer V/IV and the A-32 up for sale. The fact that they rescinded the exclusivity of only the most expensive pre-order tank seems like bad form. Then again, the M6A2E1 is the only one of those tanks that’s particularly well balanced. The A-32 was a bit garbagey back in the day, and the current incarnation of the Panzer V/IV is arguably OP. Still, I’m sure that there are plenty of players dying to get their hands on those tanks.

Agreed, The Panzer V-IV one shot rams any other tier 5 at top speed (don't even have to try). It's pretty funny. Take out a Panther and ram tier 5s, same result.

 

I just need the A-32 ;P

If any are released,  it will be with a ridiculous year premium, 1 mil silver bundle etc. etc. I sure they would sell a damn sight more if they were a reasonable price.

The Pz IIJ is a classic example.

I selfishly want CW tanks which will apparently remain rare for me, cuz I don’t want to put in the time to get one. Done it one time and was the most stressful experience ever over a game, fighting over playtime, back stabbing clan mates, and fame points left a nasty experience for me. These low tier rarities, just not my bag O’nuts.

I do not own THREE of the early tanks , Sherman , Panzer , A32 ..the clan war rewards etc. I collect the pictures of tanks so would buy like baseball cards the tanks I do not " have " . I can use my cash on this or just go shoot big game in Africa like an idiot . I rather collect tanks like an idiot as at least I do not have to pay for mounting them. There will be over time no real rarity as the marketing types now feed the cash cow and will sell ANYTHING to meet quota . They know the stuff is really crap NOW yet look at the " hype " they use when selling these things. In bundles and for a big amount . This bundle was WORTH buying but not for the tank . IF you need time and play the game on a regular basis and if you had 99 USD to throw at them.

That collectors site is not totally accurate.

 

I am wondering if you have to play at least 1 game in a premium to get it to show? I have a couple that are in my garage but yet to be played and they aren't on the list.

 

EDIT - which is logical because how will the site kow that the tank is there.
