Tankers,

 

The content team wanted me to let you know that the ISU-130 Presale is over and the general sale is Live!

 

The ISU-130 is a rare and slightly bizarre machine, being offered in a host of bundles as well as a standalone bundle with Tank and Slot.

Money Money Money.... it's all about money and the ridiculous "Bundles".

 

WG puts on a very successful Christmas promotion where participants accumulated un-unprecedented amounts of gold and we have NOTHING worthwhile to spend it on other than premium time and a very limited selection of tanks in the in game store. 

 

THROW US A BONE! Put something nice in the in game store to help us spend our gold!

 

Rant Over.

I guess the artwork is the only thing that is good on this bundle.

That the TD is a smoking turd is pretty obvious looking at the general and in particular the gun stats.

They went up to the cyber attic, blew the dust off this fossil and thought: "Why not?"

I was just talking with our Monetization guys yesterday about this (giving folks something cool to spend their Gold and Credit reserves on, as well as a Tech Tree discount - they seemed open to the idea) and while nothing is set in stone I'm cautiously optimistic we will have something for y'all soon TM

For what it's worth there is a small silver lining in the form of a standalone bundle, so at least those who are interested in getting the 130 without any extra stuff tacked on have that option available.

It's not too late for a tech tree discount THIS WEEKEND! 

 

 

Before the campaign starts! Please! It's been 5 months since the last tech tree tank sale...

Just a suggestion: Add more camo styles, preset styles, and then have a sale weekend for Gold.  I'll buy more camo than I could ever use if you guys do that.

Hey Domo 

Any word on when the paint feature will be available for tier 7?

We need some more patterns that incorporate transparent zones to blend with paints.

Wait i thought they had a bunch of tech tanks for sale just last weekend? At least the gold ones. (up to tier 7)  I thought a bunch of credit were also although I admit I didn't pay much attention to them.

It is, though. Event plans are finalized at least a few weeks in advance. Things need to be approved by quite a few different stakeholders and they need to be implemented by server-side devs. 

We're fighting the good fight, Pickpocket. Bear with us <3

No updates on that front :( But I agree, there should be at least 1 transparent camo scheme per season, per nation. I want to show off my bright purple and blue paintjobs :izmena:

Domo. I want to thank you for finally selling this tank. Its knocked one of the more elusive desires off my list of desired tanks. And its awesome.... I love it.

 

Also I would echo Yankee in saying that Tier 7 tanks need access to the cosmetic paint system. Its way overdue... please remind the devs, just incase they forgot... (also maybe remind them about tier 5.... they also need access to the paint system).

Here is my only issue.  Its cool when you pop out rare tanks like this.  However when you guys are selling a tank at around 50 dollars I always always try to gather as much information on the tank as I cant.  In doing so I try to determine if this will be a tank that I will enjoy playing.  Especially if I am going to drop 50 bucks on a piece of digital coding I will never tangibly own and God forbid WG ever shots WoT down will be  just a memory in the wind I spent 50 bucks on.  But looks up its stats, watching videos on it rarely tells me if I am going to like the play of a vehicle or not.  

 

This usually takes me down my secondary considerations for a 50 dollar premium tank.  What practical service is it going to provide me.  Will I be able to fit the entire crew of tier X tank into it for training is chief among those.  I can tell you when I am not sure if I will like how a tank plays and the tank cant fit the entirety of either tier X TDs crews into it then that becomes sla strong ticker that I probably will not purchase said tank period.

 

It would be nice if you guys would off a rental on tanks like this so i can test drive it and decide if I am going to like it before I pay 50 dollars for something.

..or at least post the full set of vehicle characteristics (including all soft/hidden stats) for potential customers to see. Seriously, why do I have to go to a 3rd party website to glean information about a tank?
