Already mentioned this a few times in other topics but putting a tank behind a subscription service that players really want sure seems like a sleazy way to keep them subscribed for services they don't really want or need. Rationalizing it by talking about how awesome Prime is isn't the point because in the end we just want to buy the tank.

I read WoTExpress(RU version) through translation and I can't tell how official/reliable the site is that the tank would be given to players permanently after their deal with Amazon ends but no telling how long that takes, probably too long since we just want to buy it. I need a correction from WG here.

If this succeeds without much feedback i could foresee them doing this with more tanks and might get worse.

They way I see it I was already paying for prime when I learned about the Prime Loot.  I got the loot plus I linked my kids Nintendo Switch account and got a year of online access for it as well.  I'd be annoyed if it were some obscure subscription to audio books or something but prime is pretty mainstream.

Why is it sleazy? You don't have to participat eifyou don't want to. IF you buy premium tank for real money and trhis one you get a subscription and a tank for real money it doesn't seem sleazy to me but an offer and a subscription. The only tim eit would be sleazy is if your win rate is directly depednet on this subsription.

Dan,customer support, informed about my tiger being a permanent rental based on my continued twitch prime membership. So I dont recall this condition being stated when I bought the tank w/ its (?)20-40% discount. I can see a limited tiedown to my twitch acct but a permanent one seems excessive since the discount really wasnt much more than ur regular specials. I recommend a posting to the description of future twitch tanks of this condition as well as a rethink of this permanent rental condition b/c in future I will not be spending money on these twitch tanks w/ this obligation attached. As for twitch prime, I like it and will continue my acct in spite of this permanent rental condition attached to my bought captured king tiger. What do others think about this?
