I would much prefer to see map conversations in a thread of there own, you both have very good points and I would be interested to see if a thread about maps and blocking would get any traction.

I have 2 maps blocked and have been content with that and only because I really, really do not like them.

 

to me, I see this thread about "popular demand" ...

Yea The Type 59G is going to be sold for only 100.00 xD. You are nuts sir. :P

how am I nuts for asking it to be sold for $100.00USD when in fact Serb himself sold 2500 of them on the NA server for 25K gold and FYI 25K gold is $99.99USD so if sold at $100.00 that's $99.99USD to Serb $00.01USD to wargaming that seems fair to me

Well is it a good tank?

 

I picked one up when it first came out

 

If you like heavies it's a fun tank to have   ...

 

On the slow side, but still quicker than the TOG or those British AT TDs

 

Find some cover to hide behind for the long reloads, then peak out and do some serious damage  .. armor is decent, too

 

If you can land 5 or 6 good hits you'll have over 2000 damage easy and make a decent load of credits even if you spam APCR

 

With the long reload you don't want to get isolated  …best to hang with the other heavies IMHO

 

I was able get in the top 5 with some wins and get the extra 40 points for the October Tank Rewards a few times   … and I'm still in my early muppet stage

I did. It's a difficult thing to argue when there are so many ways to earn consumables for free in the game. Bundles, missions, Tank rewards, all offer consumables. 50% off is hard to swing when all you have to do is play the game and you get them for free. 

 

 

Yea The Type 59G is going to be sold for only 100.00 xD. You are nuts sir. :P

 

 

WoT premium offers you to two Map blockers. If you don't have WoT premium you get one. 

 


KRZY,

 

  If you are going to ask for anything it should be the sale of crew training/retraining for credits that I have been asking about.  We haven't had one in over 3 years you know.  Even after being told to watch for it.  The rest of these sales are way to damn redundant atm.

I am honored that this thread, has made it this far Boop.  I posted the thread as a satire post.  I just hope I am able to purchase one of those tanks but with the way things are going, I may not be able to.  Medical bills are piling up faster than my checks can get into the bank so funds are extremely tight right now.

As others have said premium time or no doesn't block enough maps, and to be perfectly frank ALL of the maps are bad for one laundry list or another it's just how many pages is that laundry list long.

The why did they ever give them in the first place if they are so plentiful ?

It's a great tank even though it has that long reload.

 

Also, most players in that tank just sit in the back and cower in fear, wasting their armor simply because they can't use/play the tank/game correctly. 

 

So whether or not it is being sold again, does it matter? Does it matter when most of the player base with it applies to the above template?

They don't want to put them on sale because they give them away for free... You'll have to explain how this makes sense...

 

I'd also note that the premium consumables like food, you know the ones people wait to buy on sale, are rarely offered for free.

It's not that they will never put them on sale, but the frequency of which the sales happen. I am only speculating on this, but from noticing all the mission rewards, Tank rewards, and other rewards could effect how often they happen.

They had a one day blink and you'll miss it crew training sale a week and a half back. Before that though its been 6 months or more. They are not running the sales often, but they have occurred several times within the past 3 years.

given their track record on maps, and how awful many of the new maps and reworked maps are, I doubt that would work...

 

I'm aware

 

two blocked for prem time is not sufficient given how many truly cancerous maps exist, and/or 8 year old boring maps that have been functionally identical this long...  thus why the only premium time I've had in over a year now is from missions, tank rewards, and/or battle-rewards (whatever you call those things that give out the blue print fragments, etc)

 

If players were given the ability to block most of the corridor maps and the boring maps, there would be very few maps left to play.

At the last 50% sale, I purchased 500 large repair kits. I am now down to 100 and I play the game. If they were giving them away like clamed by krazyboop, then I should be nowhere near only 100 left.

See, this is why reading comprehension is important.

  There have been no sales for CREDITS in over 3 years.  The sales for GOLD have been occurring at a regular enough interval that anyone who wishes to use gold could.  The rest of us who do not use gold have not had a sale in some time.
