What were your thoughts on buying really rare premium tanks for credits?

Here is what I think:

#1 M41 90 GF

Nice deal for 5 million credits and you can make back the credits you used in about ~60 battles as long as you are consistent with your skills.

#2 FCM36Pak40

Impossible to obtain over the past few years, it is a tier 3 sniping monster, but at 3.5 million, the people who buy it are either TD Sealclubbers or Collectors.

My main discussion point is when the specials change over. Not entirely enthused by 2am for east aussies or 4am for unzedders.

Nice to see these Black Market sales are not limited to only T8 premiums. That would’ve been boring as hell. The only downside is that you need to be around for the next sale, not to mention have the credits to afford it. I just hope I don’t miss out on a tank that I really want. Overall I think it's a great idea. I'm not one of those who get bothered seeing rare tanks go on sale though.

My understanding is a week, so 14 tanks. Edit: just read the article (yes they ended up doing one) and it sounds like it won't be only tanks but we'll get boosters or similar instead... What joy.

 

Also hoping someone updates the forums when the next tanks change - could save people having to login.

In before only the first day being a T8 premium, rest of the day useless stuff. Then tell me about boring as hell.

Type 59 G for 25k gold.

From 180 stock all gone in less than 3 minutes.

 

edit: apparently the stock is more than I assumed.

I guess they said there would be no rules. I was hopeful for the idea of spending credits. But oh well. I'll be interested to see whether the goldies get the chinese server xp and credit modifiers or if that many people just shelled out for a 59 skin.

Most likely. Why wouldn't they? If it didn't, it'd cause a major uproar.

x2 earnings compared to a normal premmie right?

 

I can't believe I missed out on on because I overbrowsed on Facebook. But eh meh there'll probably be some interesting leftovers.

Type 59 Gold

Today they added the Type 59 Gold into the client, it might be sold. Its ingame price is 15000 gold but it doesn’t have the x2 base exp coefficient like in China. Expect a bundle for it.

 

So its price is ratcheted up by another 10k because smuggler's fee, and it's just a reskin. A golden reskin. Might work as desert camo against players with too much screen gamma; otherwise it's a covert way to 'sell a Type 59' with massive overhead.

Some people paid hundreds to get a Type 59 in Christmas 2017, this presents a better alternative.

 

Also, looking at the speed of purchase, most buyers probably have too much gold in their accounts anyway.
