I was in my garage recently and saw a pop-up in the combat intelligence thing regarding Premium insurance.  Is this a serious implementation of basically over paying to lessen the grind?

 

The basics of the insurance are that if you lose in a Tier 8-10 match and you have a premium account, but place in the top 5 you will get double the XP, credits, and free XP.  It seems to function like a booster in that you can buy a set amount of them and they will engage when you the parameters are met.

 

I really hope this isn't going to be offered as an item because this is getting ridiculous.  You haven't gotten a full plan to fix MM yet, premium shells are still an issue, and the map rotation could use some good fresh maps.  Now you want to try and squeeze more out of people who have premium because they lose and in the few instances they get in the top 5 they can get a little more in the loss.

the insurance thingies are dumb and, like Bonds, are not something this game needed.

There are no issues with premium shells.

 

The only issues are certain guns, like Type4/5, KV2,  .oi., ARL44 - that can be easily fixed.

Oh hell yeah. Nothing like holding back half an enemy team at a choke point by yourself just to watch your team sniff glue in the corner of the map. I really hope they do this.

Sqeeeze me WG, Sqeeeeeze me... For me like tanks.

It's been a while since I had it but luckily got one today, came in real handy with the losing streak I had and trying to finish the On Track missions.

I get that its not a good thing for the game in itself .... BUT I bought a 100 game insurance pack and this was one of the best things I have bought yet in WOT.

My Win rate is 47%, that said this is how pretty much 90% of my games go: 

I have an amazing game, do 3K to 4K damage, my team lose !!!  I play 2 or 3 of those kind of games in a row, lose every time.

3rd or 4th game, I get killed 3 min into the game with 1 penetrating shot .. we win !!

EVERY FREAKING TIME !!!!!!!!

Its almost as if I have a great game we are guaranteed to lose, if I have a complete crap game my team wins !!!!

 

So yes insurance for me was the best thing ever because I was able to get MORE XP and Credits on a loss than I did on a win. I would definitely buy it again if I have a tank to grind and dont want to play 400 games in it !!

l do not think that is how it truly goes. Keep telling yourself that.
