The recent pre-sales for tanks have included something along with them. The HWK30 had rental codes, and the M41D came with an extra crew trained with one skill. The article leads me to believe that the perk of this pre-sale is the ability to buy the skin, or will we be able to get the skin in the regular sale? I love the look of the skin, but was hoping to buy it separately if I liked the tank or at least not in a mega-bundle, and was going to wait to see if the regular sale had different bundles or would offer the skin separate.

As a concept I believe the intended selling point of presales in general (for us anyway) is getting access to the vehicle earlier than the rest of the server. They don't necessarily always include an 'extra' incentive, although personally I think it would be nice to have some extra incentive included in the presale bundles whenever we release them. Happy to pass your feedback on to our money folks!

It is sometimes easier to "Ace" the tank before a lot of players have it, since the master is based on averages.

The "bonuses" of the recent pre-sales have been very nice :medal: My concern is that this pre-sale has a "bonus" like the others, and that "bonus" is the ability to get the skin (Article: If you purchase the War Chest, Ultimate, or Loaded bundles during the Lancen C's Pre-Sale period, you also get the vehicle's Unique Style!). I understand that the article states you need certain bundles to get the skin, but I'm not 100% sure if it is also implying that the ability to get the skin is unique to buying in during the pre-sale and if I wait till the regular sale I won't be able to get the skin at all.

Thanks for the sentiment and its certainly appreciated here. However I fear once it gets to the 'money folks' aka marketing they will circle around heads bowed and hands clutched tightly together uttering arcane mix.max chants and make any presale bonuses more useless things like bonus credits or gold for even more money. Not bashing your idea just being a realist after years of being a wg vict.. err customer. :P

Looking at the current, regular, offers the pre-sale gave you the special Viking-camo from 'Loaded' bundle and up while now you only get it with the top bundle. Current 'Loaded' bundle is $11 cheaper than the pre-sale one with the special camo, so people have to decide if it was worth that or not.

Nothing more really.  Just an other way to pressure you into spending more money.  I always wait until the general sale.  The extras are not needed and I am not buying any premium for a very, very long time until the change it to be more like it is in Armored Warfare where you can buy all you want but you can use it one day at a time or activate the whole amount all at once.  I have over a year of premium time that I haven't spent a dime on but won it through competition but only use it one week at a time.

Apparently what was special was the ability to buy the skinand only shell out for a $65 bundle. Where as, during the sale you have to shell out $100 for a [edited]tank with a neat skin.

I guess the Pre Sale you could get the skin at a discounted deal ($65 for the lowest skin package) but in the normal sale its $100. 
shame, I did like the skin a lot but not 70$ worth of skin. guess I'll just buy the normal one then 

I do have to say Thank You for for releasing another broken premium tank though.

It would be nice to hear that wot fixed the mm instead of creating a fancy muzzle brake for another tier8 tank. That would be a bridge too far...

Along with some other issues as well.  Then many more players may come back and begin playing again which would lead to more sales.
