Hmm?

 

Why not hop over to the in-game store, buy yourself 127,000 Gold, and get the Soviet Mega and Germany Mega bundles?

48 awesome tanks! For, like, a month's rent in some places lol.

 

I know it says "mega" but did it need to be every single Premium these two trees have?

Who would be a player willing to spend that amount of money that didn't already have many,if not the majority, of these vehicles anyway?

 

Just weirds, to me.

How about complain and encourage better sales?

Well, it's not really a complaint. I find it partly funny, and partly weird.

I wouldn't buy any of the packages anyway - I just find the astoundingly high cost of these bundles... well, astounding.

:teethhappy: yeah sure that is how it works, people obviously buy these things otherwise they would have been done by now and to be fair much cheaper then buying them all individually i don't see the issue?

Agreed i don't buy any either, nothing against anyone that does pretty good deals to new players to be honest. you tagged it as WG plz and emphasis madness so kinda came across as a complaint....

 

I could not justify the cost in one go but i have spent way more then that in total on tanks so yeah these deals back in the day would have been awesome so guessing they are to new players.

I mean if I'm buying both mega packs, I'll have to put permanent camo on every single one of those 48 shiny new tanks.  Also, might as well convert gold to silver to bankroll the purchase of 3 pieces of equipment for all those tanks. I mean let's not get cheap here!

 

No need to buy much else, its gonna be a Ramen and Mountain Dew only month for me!!

I just still think forking over that much in one go would be insane.

 

New player or not.

 

But I guess I'll just go remove my account now. :P

ha ha, me too mate i could not justify it but obviously plenty of people with enough disposable income/chicken noodles to do this, to be fair to Wg they have put a massive discount on these bundles, i mean over the years we see lots of different things they try this will move on at somepoint i suspect, i wish pains picks were actually vehicles i wanted though with that nice discount.

The last bigger bundle I purchased was the Black Tanks Mega package for like 34 K gold but that included 4 tier VIII heavies (the IS-6, T-34, Löwe, and Brit. FV201) of which I had none & it broke down to sth like 8,500 Gold each. I thought it was a good deal but haven't bought anything since.. 

 

These uber- mega German / Russian premium packages contain like ALL premium tanks, and I have a lot of 'em already especially German ones. For a new player who's got the $$ to spend, they're actually not a bad deal cause they're 50% off..

Tbh why not do it? every nation so far has had a mega bundle with EVERY prem for that nation. I'm sure some people will buy it. Just not many lol

I think the sales coming up in a week should be considered "better sales". These bundles are just options. I too bought the blacks and still think it was a wise buy. To each their own I guess.

I don't think it's pointless, if these bundles were offered when i 1st played console tanks i would of picked up the French and Soviet mega bundles.

 

I like to think these are aimed at newer players who are loving the game, or vets opening the wallets for the 1st time.

I cant understand a new player that would spend that much in one go, i've spent more than the cost of these two bundles over my time playing WoT but i couldn't bring myself to spend that in one go.

And I think the French, Chinese, Japanese and even UK bundles were fairly appropriate - the latter being more expensive than I was willing to spend, but, y'know, a pretty sweet smattering.

The US bundle was edging on the upper edge of "this is weirdly pricey", I find these insane.

 

If you're the kind of person willing to drop £200 on a whim for either mega pack, I can't see this being a first purchase or an early purchase - I'd have thought someone doing that would be a regular, fairly seasoned player. One who probably already has several of these tanks.

 

It's just the inclusion of so many tanks, thereby inflating the price. If they'd had maybe 12-16 tanks apiece, and been priced to reflect that, this thread wouldn't exist.
