So because I think it is wrong for them to sell a tank only bundled with 100 dollars I have decided to instead purchase a 14 dollar tank called the Firefly VC.

 

This tank having .35 accuracy before the crew and 239 pen with APCR will out spot, out shoot, and out pen the Object 244 with my 4 skill Cromwell crew. So, nothing against the Object 244 owners. I actually wanted to be one myself. But I'm not going to pay 100 dollars for a tier 6 tank that is situational. Sorry, not going to do it. For 14 dollars I have what they call "The Tiger Killer", which is actually going to be an "Obj 244 Killer" in the game.

The real question is why you decided to reward them with any money at all

I just laughed when I saw the price. If it was a stand alone purchase for 25 bucks then I might think of buying it. They are crazy only offering it in an overpriced bundle the way they have.

I was dumbfounded when i saw the price, i thought my eyes weren't focused and i misread it and i too would have bought a barebones version of this tank (just the tank, no crew, no frills) for less money, but yeah $100 for a tier VI, just let that sink in:amazed:.

Sounds to me like WG is getting more desperate for short term revenue, if they are selling a tier 6 tank for $100 without the option for a cheaper standalone option.

before i had the tiger c problem i would have considered buying it, the issue for me isnt fixed so have not bought anything new for months, they also have sold the btsv and pz2j in the big dollar packages. but you were at least getting a years worth of prem i think

Firefly is not as good as the tech tree premium available for gold.  I forgot the name of the thing.  Better camo, armor, accuracy and gun depression.

$25 is way to much, It's a tier 6, $15 and it would have sold more, It still would not sell a lot, The tank doesn't look to good, Is2 Berlin was around $35 with a Bia crew and 2,500 gold, You could have gotten all four of the original Berlin tanks for $ 74.99, All four came with Bia crews and you also got 30 days premium time. It was such a good deal, especially being the very first time WG ever sold crews with skills/perks, I bought it three times. The 2nd and 3rd times, I got 17k gold and 4 slots, 4 crews with Bia as a zero skill. and 30 days premium, All that and it's still $25 cheaper then this tier 6 tank

WG - Makes overpowered Russian premium tanks and only releases them in $100 bundles. Greedy and dumb if they want to keep players happy. I think they gave up on that long ago though.

You talking about the AC experimental?

If this was the case, the Obj 252U/Defender wouldn't have been sold at $53, but at $100.

The gold and the credits make up the bulk of the price. Factor those out and the tank itself is only about $20. $20 is a fair price for the tank alone.

WG should have offered us a $20 version, the Firefly VC & the IS-3A for example have multiple packages at varying prices available, supposed you don't want the gold or credits, we should have been offered more options is all.

Why do people care? You're not forced to buy the tank. 

 

If I'm selling a paper clip for $10000, would you complain about it?

This is such BS.  Garbad used to sell signed paperclips for 8k in.2013.  G is clearly just here for the money and to screw players over

Are you going to keep drowning, at the beginning of games, to protest against their bundle?  I'm just curious as to if you're being a turd, in game, or if it extends to all aspects of your life.  That Pilsen game, today, makes twice, this week.
