And that's the bit that's fine. It's a free to play game, this is literally the business model.

And of course, the Mega bundles are a "good deal" compared to buying all the tanks individually - but who buys all the tanks individually, except over a year or more?

 

Getting kicked in the shins is a "better deal" than getting kicked in the nuts.

I'd rather not be kicked in the first place.

(this metaphor is in no way insinuating or suggesting that I'm somehow "forced" or badgered by WG into buying these packages)

 

Well, for old players that have many premiums they started lately to sell tanks individually again like they used to (Rudy for example). I have to give them that. Wasn't expecting it to be honest.

except its not, because refunds work AFTER the fact - so you still have to buy $300 worth of Gold just to even buy the bundle in the first place!

(and then you're stuck with $200+ worth of gold laying around after)

 

this is true, but I've never had a problem finding something else to use the gold on, or save it for future use.   These bundles might be more for the 'big spenders (the 'whales'?).....those who don't have a problem buying large quantities of gold at one time.  It's actually a very good marketing strategy by WG - if you want the best pricing you have to spend more $$ up front (for larger gold packages). I have no problem with how they do this........ it's a good business practice.

What a deal! :coin:

You actually do save on individual tanks in those bundles, if you want to drop the $$$ on gold , take the refunds and let it sit in your "account" for future purchases.

 

I got the 112 for 9,000 gold because I bought the Chinese bundle and was refunded for the rest, used the remainder to buy the Rudy and T-40.  I won't buy a bundle to get the IV/V because it will be for sale as a solo tank soon.

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.

The target market is tank collectors.  They are a pretty good deal if you dont have many of the tanks.  Additionally if a collector has missed one, this is a way to get it quicker and you get gold back for the tanks you own.  I just picked up the German all star package to get the kj panzer, I had the other tanks and the gold in this case so it was a no brainer.

What if you already have all the tanks in both bundles? :hiding:

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

Seeing all the bundles I have bought gave me a garage slot for every owned tanks, my opinion would.be discounted garage slots in exchange for getting a lot of your money upfront that you have to spend in their store.

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!!

It's s ramen month because inbought the french Bundle

... because the prices are still absurd even at 40% off, to just unlock some tanks in a video game.

There's nothing I can say to change your mind if you think this is a deal and not blatant free to play greed, so I'll just move on.

 

So, are you saying that if you owned a business, you would try to make as little money as possible?  If it were me, I would try to make as much as possible.  I would definitely push the envelope to try to figure out where that price point would be.  I guess that is just me.:)

You guys should do yourselves a favor and use that money to buy new tires for your car. Youll thank me later.

I find the duplication in the bundles irritating. Unless you have a KV-5 you wouldn't know if you wanted both it and the Grynch together, or you literally just want it for the numbers. 

 

Also the Fatherland is only a few weeks old, where it was described as get it before it's gone - well it's back faster than a boomerang and 30% off already. That's bonkers - WG needs to really work on how they word their promotional material...

It could be argued that would be unethical and exploitative practice, but whatever.

This should be interesting.  How exactly is trying to make as much money as you can from selling your product, unethical and exploitative?

This is what drives me nuts. I have gory, why would I want a plain boring KV-5? Same with Motherland, etc.

If you have the money and already have the tanks, I'll happily take the money for the gold.
