AWESOME! Discounted premium tanks!

 

I am confused - how do I access it? through the store panel/button inside the game client?

The in-game store, a special icon selection will appear once the market goes live.

Oh, so it is not active yet. I guess will have to check it later. Thanks for the info!

Looks like they just opened it for business on the EU server.

 

First post says a tier 8 premium for 5 million credits.

Huh, a M41 GF for 5M credits, i don't particularly care for this tank but a Premium for credits?! i won't pass this up, unless of course maybe they're doing a different tank each day!! :O that'd be real great, though what are the chances they're doing just the Black tanks? Like T34 B, IS-6 B, Schwarzpanzer 58, and does Chrysler K count?

Open for business!  You'll find the black market in your store tab in-game.

5 Million?

The tank costs 6,500 gold

Do the math, It should cost 2.6 million?

Correct but it is good for people that can't put real money in the game though. I picked it up just to have it sit in my garage. But it is what it is right.

Well you could look at the math this way.  The last marathon for a tier eight premium took me 200ish battles.  A battle in a tier eight premium nets me a average of 50k credits.  So if I buy the tank for 5 million credits it would take me 100 battles at 50k a pop to make the credits back.  So you roughly get a tier eight premium tank for half the battles of a marathon with no need to grind it out in two weeks.

this means that people who have spent years and thousands of games grinding out a multi skill crew advantage can now watch a new player negate it by spending gold (money) on silver.

.

additionally, it means new players who want to keep up must match this strategy, and spend money to compete evenly..

.

the game has already gone pay to win, but this seems something of a slap to the time-invested players who have achieved 4 and 5 skill crews.

.

I hope its priced so that its difficult and pricy to crank up more than a couple crews a year.

.

the smaller ones, gained as bonus drops will be fun though.

.

.

.

wonder what Tazilon thinks of this plan....

Same. I would have bought the thing too.

Heh, I end up going to sleep 20 minutes before it goes live thinking I’ll catch the deal in the morning anyway. Guess I was wrong. WOT really is about managing frustration, even when it comes to sales.
