Stop these "excluse" and back stabbing gimmicks! If these plans go ahead, they will cause a genocide to all original bt-sv owners.

 

  • ​When the 2012 Soviet Collectors Gift Pack and the 2012 German Gift Pack got released, I and many other asia users bought these packs from worldoftanks.ru for ~$300 each, with the understanding that there was a limit of 5000 copies to be sold of each pack
  • Then the 2014 Soviet Collectors Gift Pack and the 2014 German Gift Pack got released, limited to 5000 copies
  • Now the premium store wants to sell unlimited copies for ~$100 with content better than mugs and key chains

 

Here are two rectifying options for WG to take before they betray more people:
 

Option A (my preferred):

  • put all premium tanks (even 'rares') into the premium shop and keep them there forever.

 

Option B:

  • don't put the BT-SV on premium shop to avoid betraying everyone that paid ~$300 for these tanks

 

The thing is, those Gift Packs you bought in Russia were meant for Russia. I don't mean to sound harsh or high-and-mighty but the matter of the fact is, they were available to Russian server before and so, we are making it available to Asia server as well.

I am terribly sorry you had to pay a lot of money for those packs it but it was never meant to be bought used in Asia.

 

If some tanks are accessible to some players via purchase in a server, then, in my humble opinion, it should be available to all players in that server even if only during a limited time.

I can't say if other tanks will go on sale just like this, we're taking this one step at a time.

 

Thank you for your continued support of World of Tanks Asia.

You are still entitled to your opinion so feel free to share with us how you feel about this month's special.

WOT Asia has never sold these tanks and never made any promises regarding them. 

If you have one it is because you bought an RU pack and support agreed to load it for you.  The other option would have been for you to buy the pack and then support to refuse to load it for you. 

They basically did you a favour after you unofficially bought a pack not for use on this server. 

How are you being 'betrayed'

WG, any chance you can fix the tank + gold + credits bundle please? Someone failed at maths.  I was going to get the below bundle, but decided against it.....

10K Gold + 10M mil silver is $127.78 NZD

BT-SV + SLOT + 7.5K / 7.5Mil is $135 NZD


 

 

Current 360 day premium account is 127.78 NZD

BT-SV+Slot+365days is $123.12


 

25K + 6.5k gold is $163.08 NZD

BT-SV + Slot + 30K gold is 153 NZD

in short:  Tank is free if you are getting premium, or gold, if you want bundle with silver, you are getting screwed :p

You are mistaken. The tank (BT-SV) & garage slot is free (not calculated in the price) in all 3 of the packs.

No, Wargaming doesn't have a bad track record for "limited time offer"

Players have a bad track record of making such things up, or reading the made up quotes from players and assuming WG actually said what the player made up.

There is no such mention of "limited time offer" written on this sale, as there has been no such decision made at this time.

It just states its for sale for the first time on the Asia server, which it is.

Tan

So in a couple of weeks it will be for sale as a stand alone for 20$... Same as the KV-220(from rough memory)

Also just for Feet

The BT-SV is provided free with ~$100 packs for the month of November.
It won't be sold/gifted in any other format during November.

December / January hasn't been decided yet, as the planning is still in progress.

 

But its "likely" the tank will be sold in this format (free in ~$100 packs) every ~3 months.

Tan.... 

I detailed costs of each pack fairly clearly.

The BT-SV bundle with gold and silver is more expensive (and gets you less gold and silver) than buying the 10k gold + 10 mil silver by $5 USD

Ahh got you.

The 10k gold / 10 mil silver pack is highly discounted.

The credits in that pack are calculated at 666 credits per gold, rather than the usual 400 silver per gold.
