Serious question: In the past the hydro was bundled with 10K gold and 10 mil credits or similar.  Was bundling it with only 10 mil credits on purpose or is this another WG store typo?

Hydro ain't worth $100 dollarydoos (or whatever your local currency equivalent is) though it's debatable with 10k creds and 10k gold, I guess.  With out both amounts it's not worth it.

 

Hydro's neat, but I'd pass.

Yeah... this can't be right.

 

In the Premium Shop, there is 10,000 GOLD and 10,000,000 credits for $99.99.

 

The Hydro deal is replacing 10,000 gold with a tier 5 tank & garage slot (combined full retail value of 2800 gold).

 

Therefore, selling the tier 5 medium tank for 9700 gold (~ $39).

 

Holy moly... 39 USD for a tier 5 ???

Seriously guys... you're over-monetizing WoT. I know that if you don't get no tolls, then you don't eat no rolls but this is getting embarrassing.

There's a sucker born every minute. Actually I doubt they are trying to rip us off, the people that put the ads together just don't do any proof reading and they aren't familiar with the products.

In a 100 dollar bundle that has 10 mil credits but NO GOLD... but wait, it's on sale for 10% off!  Are you serious?  You've lost all credibility with this one.  Please go talk to your monetization team to save yourself the embarrassment of having to deliver these deals. Seriously, they're trolling you hard.

Wargaming.  You have always tried to sell the Hydrostat as a $100 tank.  It is not worth $100.  That is why it is a rare tank because so few of us are that stupid.

Change it to the Skorp G and you might actually sell some.

I'm going to assume a mistake was made here. I don't expect the error to be fixed though. Just like WG shouldn't expect anyone to buy this. At all.

I only write what is truthful and logical.

 

I'm neither pro-WG or anti-WG.

 

I don't "jump on bandwagons" or "run with the crowd" of WG haters. Therefore, the haters want to demonize me as a WG "lover", which I am not.

 

I try to be fair to WG, though... they do have a business to run and keep profitable. Many of their detractors fail to consider that.

 

I like the game a lot and, as long as that is true, I will support the game, with my posts and my dollars.

WOW! I mean WOW! Of all the broken offerings this one rates right up there. I had to double check to make sure it wasn't April 1st because I figured this was a joke... but it is not. War Gaming are seriously trying to sell a Tier 5 very average tank for that much money. Ohhh but wait, War Gaming say it is a rare tank. It is rare, but only because not many will actually purchase one at that price. I am the first to admit that I once spent money on this game but it was back when the game was great. It is no longer great, maps have been ruined and match making is broken. The 3, 5, 7, MM has ruined tier 8, it is a shame because that is where most of the premium tanks are. Kinda why I no longer buy them. This way over priced joke of a deal on a tier 5 premium tank takes the cake. Did I say WOW? LOL

 

Good luck War Gaming,

From the lack of any sort of reply, I am assuming this is WG purposefully trying to sucker it's player base.  I'm not surprised. It isn't the first time and it won't be the last.

sad part is that you will still get 1000 people who are to brain dead to realize this is a bad deal, and still buy it thinking it will increase their winrate 10 fold.
