Vehicle Trade-In: Volume 11

TRADE-IN PERIOD BEGINS: Jan. 18 at 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET
TRADE-IN PERIOD ENDS: Feb. 1 at 03:20 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET

 

Important: Active Premium tank discounts may affect the value of the vehicle you’re trading in, if that vehicle is currently on discount. Discounted vehicles will be marked accordingly in the trade-in window.

Are You Eligible?

 

You can trade in a Tier VI-VIII Premium tank when you buy a new Premium vehicle from the Tech Tree of the same or higher Tier. When trading in, half of the old vehicle’s value in Gold will be deducted from the price of the new one. Only one vehicle can be traded in at a time.

 

Example Trade: 

Say you want to buy the Löwe, which costs 11,200 Gold. In exchange, you’d like to trade in your old Dicker Max, which normally costs 2,800 Gold.

Just like when selling vehicles gives you half the original value in Credits, trading in your old Premium tank will get you half of its value in Gold, which is then deducted from the total price of the tank you’re buying.

 

In this example, trading in your Dicker Max gets you half of its Gold price, 1,400. That lowers the price of the Löwe by the same amount, leaving 9,800 Gold as the cost to buy.

 

Important: Active Premium tank discounts may affect the value of the vehicle you’re trading in, if that vehicle is currently on discount. Discounted vehicles will be marked accordingly in the trade-in window.

 

Vehicles that can be TRADED IN

 

Vehicles that can be OBTAINED

 

 

How to Trade

 

Method 1: Through the in-game Store

 

 

 

Method 2: Through the in-game Tech Tree

 

 

 

Keep in Mind…

 

  • This feature is only available during the dates and times listed above
  • Can only trade in vehicles of a lower or equal Tier to the vehicle for purchase, and no lower than Tier VI
  • Only one vehicle can be traded per transaction
  • Gold price may be affected by Premium vehicle discounts
  • Ammo, equipment, and consumables loaded on the trade-in vehicle will automatically be dismounted and placed in the Depot for free
  • Camo, emblems, and inscriptions on the trade-in vehicle will go to the Depot; however, as they’re vehicle-bound, you can only use them again if you get the vehicle back in the future
  • Crew on the trade-in vehicle automatically goes the Barracks; if there aren’t enough free bunks in the Barracks, the trade-in won’t be possible
  • Trade-in vehicles can't be restored using the in-game Restore feature
  • When trading in, you don't need to buy an extra Garage Slot, since the new vehicle will take the old vehicle's Slot

 

 

 

 

Folks if you have a rental of the tank you want it won't let you trade for it as it doesn't differentiate between rentals and owned vehicles.  So make sure to remove the rental if you're trading for one.

Nice, I think I'm finally going to trade in my T34 B. Never could make it work for me.

I never cared for the trade-in promotion. I feel like I am not only giving up a tank at half price bu tbuying the new one for 1.5 times the price.

Its different when you trade-in obsolete junk you got for free for new and shiny fresh tonk.

Eg. In first trade-in, few years ago, I liquidated original "free" T34 I have not played for years into new and shiny Strv S1. And now I could do it again with T34B I got for credits just in case of trade-in, but tank list is a miss for me.

Hmm, you could technically turn in bonds for tanks to trade for gold if you have more bonds then gold sitting around.  Something like 1.88 bonds per gold if you buy the is-5 to turn around and trade it away. 

 

The thing I wonder is if you can get a tank from the recruit program more then once.  As I have all the tanks from that program, but have two recruit slots open.  My thinking would be to trade one of those tanks off then find a new minion to complete the program to get the tank back for free.

 

Though you can't get a tank for free by trading in something of equal value.

Know what bugs me, though?

 

You can't trade down. You can only trade up, or same tier.

Traded my 703II for an IS-6, will the 703II crew lose any capability in the IS-6?  Thank you.

 

Don't know why but never like the 703II.

Shouldn't.  The IS-6 is a premium, any same type (i.e. "heavy" ) crew is fine.  My T-150 crew is infesting my IS-6 as we speak, and they're happy as clams, still showing white stats, not red ones.  :teethhappy:

Tried to trade a two for one?

 

Am I right that I can't do that and if so why am I not surprised.

 

 

Wallets closed WG so keep your shady deals.

Makes sense to me but have never put an existing crew from one Premium to another Premium.

I have almost 380 tanks in my garage so almost all of them gather dust. Grinding my premiums gets me more credits, Grinding the Christmas loot boxes earned them all the money they will get from me this year (11-2020 to 11-2021) SO I guess my perspective is different than those that play with a lean garage and leaner economy.

That would certainly NOT be me! 

I was just happy to have some use of that dumb T34 after all those years :D

I have several russian heavies. They bounce around from tank to tank before playing in the tech tree home tank.

No the commander is the radioman in both vehicles so those skills will still work.  Of course you'll have an extra loader in the barracks as the IS-6 only has one.  They're both prem tanks so the crew will work the same retrained or not.

They discounted all in game store prems awhile back so that's probably the end of tech tree prem discounts.

 

They were offering discounts bundles of prems in the in game store that aren't normally there periodically before Advent.  Hopefully those bundles return.

 

But the discount on them is in name only.  They bundle the tanks with some x5s a free crew and some boosters.  The price is the normal gold price, so the discount is on the bundle.  Essentially you get the extras tossed in for free. 

 

Still I was able to use in game gold to get a few prems that normally aren't for sale in the store.
