Suggestion and opinion:

 

Today I noticed that the IS-2 premium tank is on sale for 30% off. Originally $25.88 so it's now $17.99. That is already a good bargain.

 

But if you have discount coupons, the price can be even lower. Using my 15% coupon, that means it comes to $15.29.

 

The IS-2 is a good Tier VII heavy tank. Pretty much identical to the tech tree IS Tier VII heavy tank. Except you already get camo on it and, as a premium, makes more credits and accelerates crew training. You can help train many Russian heavies in this tank.

 

On top of that, the IS-2 comes with a 100% trained crew with the perk "Brothers In Arms". BIA crew are highly valuable. I've purchased some premium tanks that come with BIA crews more then once so I could get more BIA crews. You get the gold value of the tank, a garage slot, whatever else comes with it, plus the BIA crew which I retrain for where I need a good crew.

 

Just pointing this out.

BIA crews have been my focus for awhile now. Even more so when Crew Books came out.....Note: pay attention when thinking about buying a premium tank you already have for the crew and the gold. Usually if you are paying with money you'll get the gold for the tank, but they have been adding the stipulation that you wont on some of the sales such as the current Black Friday sales for the IS-6, T-34b and so on. If you don't get the gold and want a refund, they usually will do so IF you haven't already played it.

Tempting.  Have the IS-2 already, like it, wouldn't say "no" to another Rooskie BIA crew, especially with cheap retraining this weekend.

 

How do I figure out/find the gold value for my 15 bucks?

 

ETA:  Looks like it's a regular BIA, not a 0 Perk BIA, but that's still pretty nice.

Here you go:

https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wot/main/14298/

 

Also, maybe this is just a crew with the BIA skill, not the 0 perk BIA skill as usually comes on the IS-2. If so, then not as stellar a purchase as the IS-2 usually is, but still good. They did this with some other tanks before. Ones that came with the 0 perk BIA skill then sold them again but with regular crew that just had the BIA skill already researched.

Haven't seen this but was thinking about the AMX 13 57, $20 for me with 20% coupon, but buying the IS-2 and getting gold for it is tempting too

It's 0 perk bia, and the gold value of the tank is 5250 that you will get if you already have it.

So with coupon that's almost half off the price of the gold AND a Rooskie crew (even if it's not 0Perk) with BIA.

 

I'm sold.

FYI, all ...

 

M54E2 is in the shop, too - though I refuse to buy one until they change that "M" to a "T"

 

All yours, plus 3 days Premium Time, for the low, low price of $76.00
