Hey WG,

 

Thanks for allowing us to purchase tanks through the advent calendar with gold.  Why the hell is the VK 75.01 K not included in this?  Putting this up for real money is BS when people have been saving their gold to purchase this tank, or the EBR ( i was waiting for it ).

 

Very not cool, I'd use other language to describe this scenario but the post wouldn't make it to the page.  You have probably made a lot of people very unhappy and pissed off.  

 

Good Game!!

Because big brain Wargaming thinks this tank is special I guess? Or they are just stupid. There is nothing special about the tank for it to not be put up for gold, it's just another random tier 8 prem that came out this year just like a lot of the other tanks in the calendar. So really it just makes no sense, have fun figuring out the puzzle that is WG marketing.

No time to figure that out.  Time to start the turkey.

 

Merry Christmas everyone else.

And it is, at best, a mediocre vehicle.
It's not superscaryOP like the Defender (was not offered) or the ChryK (didn't buy - got too many tier 8 heavies as it is) or some of the other actually rare(ish) tanks like the Pz2j, SU hydro TD, or platinum hype59...

WG marketing assumed that NA would 'not be on the internet' on C'mas day to put up a mediocre turdmobile expecting people to shell out yet *MORE* $$$ the one day of year where they'll be at their most broke?

Should've offered up a completely unique, never before seen vehicle or 3D styles.  People would've snapped them up like a 4 year old after candy - for $$$.

My guess is they want people spending some more of their real money instead of just using the gold they have left over from the holiday boxes.

I have to ask... If they are scumbags why would you continue to support them?? I'm pretty sure that only a scumbag would knowingly and willingly support other scumbags so are you exaggerating or...

Its beyond me why they would have decided to make this the last tank ! So many other much better option where people might actually have forked out the cash. Really dont know who will go and buy this after spending money on loot boxes and premium time.  This tank was on sale not too long ago and will probably be on sale again in the next few months unlike some other tanks like the EBR 75 that has been available only once since release.

Totally agree.

It's no more special than any of the others.  See this is the type of stuff that I have been complaining about with premium sales and you guys laugh at but your not laughing now.  Are ya?  It's hitting  home.

Yeah it's pretty frustrating.  Completely forgot they don't offer the last one for gold, although they should.  I would've gotten the VK..  

 

Even more frustrating is the difference in sales on the EU server.  They're so much better and cheaper over there.  VK deal is like half the price.  Not to mention the black Friday where they had like every t8 premium for 30% off.  

 

Exactly what I would expect from WG.  Always feels like the NA server is shafted

This is just more [edited]from them.  They are starting to be as bad as Gaijin in this regard.  Was going to re-up another year of premium because I play this game a lot.  However, I think I'll just start playing non-premium after this stunt.  Can still enjoy the game, they just won't get any more cash from me.  Gold to spare and nothing to spend it on.  Was really hoping to use it on today's tank.  rip
