Look at the bright side.

By all means you got the Defender and garage slot for free. I guess WG just didn't want to take a chance if some 252U owner actually didn't mind getting free Defender, so they don't automatically refund the Defender if 252U is already in garage.

 

Still would be nice if WG allowed refund by tickets. 


Back to World of Tanks for now.

I kinda want support to resolve the issue by removing it from the account.

Nope Rejected by support  - This is very poor from WG. Bad design.

 

Thank you for contacting Wargaming Support.

We understand that you have received the OBJ 252 Defender from the Loot Box and would like it to be refunded or compensated. We also understand that you already have the OBJ 252U Tank and would not want to have the Defender.

However, please know that the Tank is from the Loot Box that you bought and we can only refund the Loot Box itself if it is unopened. Also, in game gold compensation will be credited to the account only if you received the same Tank. In this case, the Defender Tank is not the OBJ 252U that is why you have not received the compensation in Gold.

With this being said, we apologize but we are unable to grant your requests of refund and/or Gold compensation for the OBJ 252 Defender Tank. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Thank you for understanding, Commander.

 

"The defender is not the same tank"??

 

why because it has a skin???

 

WG acknowledge that we get duplicates of THE SAME TANK and its useless but will not do anything about it.

 

And here is why I said no . If they bow now , can you imagine how in the future other tanks would follow . Re the whole Black line . eg IS 6 and IS 6 Black . WG have created this little monster . Hence their stance now .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

hindsight is hilarious, and WG certainly way too short-sighted for their own good.

Special camo tanks are the worst offenders since a lot of players already demand special separate skins for a while. Well, maybe one day WG will relent and allow gold exchange for special camo tanks if you also have vanilla one, but i won't hold my breath.


Back to World of Tanks for now.

As a guy who owns a 252 instead of a Defender, I kinda get the point, but I'm not really going to pitch a fit if I happen to get one (unless I buy a ton of boxes and that's the ONLY tank I get, lol).

 

It would be nice if they could something about this, but I sure wouldn't hold my breath.

why should i trade in the same duplicated tank and insta lose 50% of the gold value, due to such blatant, inconsiderate, preventable mistakes from WG? 

 

This kind of low lvl mistakes can be prevented,, cause there are ppl who hold their wallet & it really hurt the lotbox sales.

No it doesn't.

 

Sell the tank for credits.

^^^ Pretty much this. If you didn't want to risk getting a defender, don't buy the boxes.
