Best I can find so far is that Daily x10 means 10 lost battles, has nothing to do with a "day" of insurance. I thought that if it was 10 days it would be worth it for $5. You know for those x3 x5 weekends when 9 out of 10 teams you get put on are fails. Heck one of those weekends I could go through that in an hour. Oh well....

Yeah, if this coming weekend is x5 as they said in the Sneak Peak article, I might be tempted to try one of these.  Just wish they'd explained them better.

I purchased insurance in premium shop.  You need to be aware of something that is not shown in the details when you buy insurance.  WOT says …

 

We would like to inform you that in order for the insurance to apply you need to be in the Top 5 base on experience earned on your team.

 

Please factor this in to your decision before you buy insurance.  I was not aware of this before I purchased and like I mentioned this was not listed in the details.

 

Actually that's a good thing. That will keep bots and players who think they can farm "win" exp and credits without trying to win from getting the benefit. Though I really wish WG would learn how to communicate with the players when they start something new like this. They would save themselves so much grief from the players if they did!

Yeah they lack in communication. I believe, almost certain, the Day, Weekend and Month labels are just that, labels. It isn't time restricted from what I seen. First when it was being test like 2 months ago I got ~10 free ones. It was a significant credit boost, for sure. As for buying it myself, no thanks.

okay I bought the $5.00 daily to see how it works. It shows up under your missions tab as Insurance under Other Missions. So it's not like a personal reserve that you activate. You have to be among the top 5 exp on your team to get it and looks like it is limited to tier 8 and up. So that's a real bummer. So basically lose a game be tier 8 or higher and top 5 by exp on your team and you get x2 credits x2 free exp and x2 exp.

Tier 8 and up?  They should make that really obvious in the premium shop.  Guess they want lower-tier players to waste money buying something they can't use.

That is standard WG lack of communication. I don't think I'd give them the credit for coming up with an evil scheme to scam money. I just think it's plan old incompetence on their part.

Sounds like it would make losing super profitable if you're playing a prem tank, and also earn a battle hero medal on a loss.
