With the introduction of the AW Phase 1 the premium repair consumable was added to the game. I believe there is a missed opportunity here for both the players and Wargaming.

Premium consumables, namely exact copies of the existing consumables that are purchased once with gold and are reusable Large Repair, Large First Aid Kit, and Extra Rations (universal).

Unlike the repair on the AW Phase 1 these would be exact copies of the existing consumables with exception to the "Extra Rations" which would be usable by every nation but provide the same effect. Ideas for pricing should be low enough that it is conceivable people would buy multiples yet not so cheap as to make it the only option. My recommendations would be as such:
Large Repair Kit (Reusable) 500 Gold

Large First Aid Kit (Reusable) 400 Gold
Extra Rations (Universal, Reusable) 600 Gold

I think 1500 Gold for a full set is right in the middle of too expensive and the only way to go.

It would be a tempting offer for F2P players, and a slight boon to income for everyone.

 

Again these would be exact copies of the consumables already in game (not a special one like the AE gets), the difference is that you would only buy them once with gold. They could be moved between tanks and nations and the extra rations would be applicable to all nations.

Sure, more ways to screw FTP players over. Sounds like a great idea!

Huh? ok suuuure you would have to pay $8 (at full price) but then you would never have to buy those with credits again. The savings you would have over their lifetime as a (near as makes no difference) F2P player would be astronomical especially considering how much more you will be playing without premium time.

Even if you're only replacing small repair and heal that's going to go a long way for a very small investment..

The definition of FTP means they literally don't put money into the game, they can only get gold from clan activities or tournaments. At full price, most people up to a top 20 clan would be lucky to get 1500 gold for a season. So you're telling me that instead of saving up for a premium tank, they would also need to save up 1500 gold per set of premium consumables?

 

If they don't like the current form of broken tournaments, there goes their only other payment method.

 

It just sounds dumb when they already put those consumables on sale 50% off around most holidays (just buy in bulk), you can earn plenty of credits in frontline even without premium tanks and they even give out consumables for free all the time. 

 

It just sounds unnecessary and would only really benefit people who put money into the game to buy gold. Especially around Christmas, people end up with 200k+ gold and could just load up every tank with premium consumables while the player who buys nothing is screwed.

Since tanks for bonds doesn't seem like it will ever happen and directives are the in game economic equivalent of buying lottery tickets, perhaps this will be a bond consumable that is actually WORTH the bonds.

So if they get 1500 gold for free during events and buy a single set that they can freely move to any tank at any time this would be a bad addition for a free to play player?
I'm genuinely confused why you're opposed to this if you're a free to play player this would be a huge benefit to you... You would get premium consumables that would help you preform better and save you the purchase price of those consumables. Even if you buy in bulk for half off that's still silver you would otherwise not have to spend. You wouldn't have to buy a set for every tank even though many would you could move them around as you see fit.

Wouldn't be opposed to that either but I'd like to see it as another purchase option in addition to.
