None of the old premium tanks made it to the gift shop? For instance the KV5, T59, M6 US premium heavy, Type 62 Chinese, A32, etc....

Alot of ppl would really like some of the older tanks that were premiums. Just my 2 cents...



Yes I know my stats suck....Thanks for pointing out the obvious

They're likely not to be monthly, ideally they will change a few times within the month.
But the gift-shop will be stocked and rotating from now on.

Several tanks are not available at this time the T59/T62 being some of them. When they are available again, we will book them into the gift-shop.

Event End: 24 December
There's a high chance they'll do something for Christmas day that might be even better.

As it is all of these are pretty good and near the 250 gold per dollar best value, which is unusual for the lower priced gift shop stuff.

Not available? They on back order again Tan?

Will there ever be an offer of the older premiums?








I still haven't gotten my KV220

Thanks Tan, appreciate this.

I haven't done the math, but it seems these are actually 'value for money', as opposed to simply a re-posting of the ingame store prices - so well done! If I'm right, NA going to be jelly  :Smile_glasses:

I would like more offers without the repair kits and such consumables not included. I do not buy and do not want to buy these and as such are just a secondary cost added to the price of the premium tank which i do not consider worthwhile.

It feels like filler. To raise the gold value with fluff and make you feel good about the amount of gold to dollar they cost. If i were to deduct the gold value of these things i deem useless, then it would be more money efficient to just have bought them with gold.

edit: by 10-20 % in some cases.

Edit, the second: Fun fact, its better gold to dollar ratio to buy 3 4700 gold packs for 60 and buy a lowe than to buy the lowe by the gift shop. let alone if you just payed 50 or 100 dollars.

Also for those wondering I'm a miser tightarse.

I think a lot of us are missing the point of the 'gift'. With gifts it's the giver who decides what's to be given or offered, not the receiver. If the receiver is determining what's on offer or available then that's just a normal demand driven retail environment. Hence it would be called the WoT Shop, not the Gift shop.

If you don't like what's available you don't have to buy it.

Having said all that, can I put the Mutant 6 on my gift suggestions list please Santa?

You can gift them to yourself, or another.
They are not just for gifting to others.
Or,, there is the normal gold purchasing options.

With the giftshop the payment options alter, depending if the gift is to you, or someone else.
Most payment options are available if you gift to yourself, Playspan is currently the only option for gifting to others.

That's not the point I was attempting to raise. I do not find the gift shop specials, especially those fluffed up by consumables to be cost effective as to warrant being purchased over gold. I feel you add 30% the price with crap, drop the price by 5/10% and then sell it as a deal.

Edit: that still makes 20-25% junk price added.

Edit duece: The lowe should also IMO cost 52$ to make it on part with purchasing 50$ of gold at 240G/D
