I bought some and got some, not happy with some. Do I get gold for selling? I can't almost sell because they all now have prem components and that stops me from seeing what I get. Vents and such....
...just along for the ride :child:

No gold, just silver.

don't sell them. just be unhappy with them and play them once a day to get a x2 for a crew of that nation.

you see I really don't understand people that say this. Unless it's your only silver making tank, if you don't enjoy playing it then don't play it and if you don't play it what's the point in having it sitting around? Play tanks you enjoy and find prems you enjoy and you'll make a lot more silver than forcing yourself to play tanks you dislike, and more importantly you'll HAVE FUN.

because if you sell it then it's literally the worst way to waste money. you might as well use it and live with your decisions.

Might sell thy Panther 8.8, no regrets. Just not enjoyable.

Also selling my Churchill III, not enjoyable either, especially the Captured KV-1 Power creep, and the mass of PZ V/IVs that will be coming won't be fun either.

Would it be possible to gift it--like what may be coming as mentioned in the Q&A:
 

Any thoughts on Clan members sending Silver/Gold to each other?

We're hoping to add gifting to the Store soon. Fund transfers are tricky because laws vary by state and country, so direct currency transfer isn't likely. 

 
 
So what tanks are you not liking OP?

Keep them. You only have 4k Battles, maybe you will enjoy them when you're more experienced. Not every premium is easy to play, you first have to find your playstile with the tanks and this will take a few battles. 

Btw: Which tanks are you talking about?

All I see in his profile is the Fatherland, Blitzen and BT7A.  If that is all I had, I wouldn't sell any of them.  You will need the high tier to make silver--particularly as you progress up the ranks.  The low tiers you will need to train crews faster.  Maybe sell the BT7A after you get a crew with a couple skills.

I agree with Warlock, keep them and maybe one day you'll be glad you did. It's happened to me on more than one occasion where I didn't like a premium tank at first and later on I came back to it and enjoyed it after all. I shudder to think that I almost sold my Tie Fighter.

I have sold some premiums that I don't miss at all though so I suppose it's one of those things that you'll just have to figure out.

If they did not come off the tech tree and you need the garage slots or the silver, sell them.
If at some point in the future you decide you want them back, just send in a support ticket asking for tank restoration. Then you can buy them back for the amount of silver they gave you for it when you sold it. (if you have the silver and an open garage slot)
This is only applicable to the so-called "rare" premiums that come and go from the store.

Correct!

 

You can restore ANY TANK EVER SOLD(minimum 1 game played) for its Silver sell-price :)

You get 4 such Requests per year, unlimited Tanks-per-request, and if you need to you can sell/return/sell/return however often you like :)

I sometimes wonder about this though.

 

What is the population of the forum?

 

Because I think unless you're on the forums you won't know what the Rampanzer is. Just like the non forum users didn't have a clue that the US Sexton was OP.

 

The Rampanzer is very expensive for a tier 5 premium, well over a thousand​ more gold than most tier 5 tanks. That price may well put many not in the know off.

I think if you got GOLD for selling premium tanks then I can see why some people would sell them.

But as you only get silver I don't get it.

Most premium tanks you pay real money for, to then sell that premium tank you might as well have flushed that money down the toilet.

I bought the KV5, and I don't like it, but I wouldn't sell it as I paid real money for it.

It'll just sit there in my garage gathering dust like a lot of my other tanks.

There's very little upside to selling off a premium tank. If you need the silver, just run a handful of games in the premium tank and then you have both the silver and the tank. If it's about the garage slot, it shouldn't be too difficult to come up with 300 gold. A little over a dollar. Or wait for a sale to come along and stock up (thanks to Parking Pass a long time ago I still have 23 open slots). 

 

Only other reason I have seen is to clear up the "clutter" in the garage. And while I can understand that, I haven't found clutter to be a problem and my garage has well north of 100 tanks in it. Filters/Favorites FTW.

Then you should get it back. Open a support ticket, you need a garage slot and the silver you got when you sold the CDC. 

You can restore tanks 4 times a year and as much tanks as you want every time, also non premium tanks. 

I hated the CDC too at the beginning, it took some time but now I'm getting along with it and i'm very close to my 3. Moe.:honoring:

Only premium I ever sold was the Knight when I got the Boilermaker, that is it. I'm just not a Cromwell guy, even though most people are.
