I have 1900 gold to spend, but nothing in the store seems very interesting apart from maybe the T-14 (don't care for Sexy Sam, and I've got the BT-SV already). Is there some way to know what the next couple of tanks in the store will be? I could use a nice french, czech or chinese premium, but are there even any nice tanks from those nations in that price range?

Any suggestions for something else is also welcome. :)

Save Your money for Summer. If WG isn't lying, we will get many decent premiums such as: RHM Scorpion, AMX M4 49 or German Bulldog

Well if you want a Chinese premium, wait and see if they will sell the Type 59 again. Very handy machine if played right.

Don't rush. What do you want, a silver earner or crew trainer? I've got plenty of premiums gathering dust because i bought them just because they were there. If you've got a favourite nation then buy a premium from that nation but wait for the one you want rather than buying one for the sake of it.

That might be a good idea, although I usually don't play that much in summer. But aren't they probably going to be out of my price range? I mean, sure I could wait and get some more gold down the line, but paying in excess of 15-20 euros on some pixels still seems like utter madness to me, and I'm probably not going to do it. Not in my current finacial situation anyway.

Thanks for your input. I've been considering the Hype 59 as well, but isn't that thing like 8k gold or something like that? How about the Type 64? I like playing my lights (even though I suck in them).

Trust me ... Summer is the time when many great OP premiums will be in store. If You are not planning on spending much money on World of Tanks, only 1 good tier VIII premium will be enough for You.

I would prefer a crew trainer, since I already have the Fatherland, Hammer and Boilermaker, which all farm me ample amounts of credits. Maybe something with dual nation capabilities. Is there a french/chinese tank out there?... :trollface:

I'm in no rush, and that is also why I'm trying to figure out if anything nice is coming up. +1 for reminding your fellow forumers to think twice before buying, though. :)

Look to the lower tiers for crew trainers. Higher xp bonuses and cheaper.

I just keep an eye on the website.  Usually well prepared by the time something comes out that I'm interested in getting.  The app still links to the News section if you have it, all its good for now really.

Well, I was not exactly imagining that my 1900 gold would get me past tier 5, but thanks anyway. ;)

CKV-1 & T-34-88 dual German & Russian. The Churchill III is a proper crew trainer because you can put a 75% skilless crew in it and still do reasonably well whereas the AMX Chaffee ( dual French & American) and the Type 59 aren't real crew trainers because without at least 6th, BIA & camo or repairs you'll get smashed all over the place, they're more skill increasers.

Low tier would be the Pz B2, T-127, T15 or Locust. Fun and cheap.

Aah yes, I'm not planning on training many crews from scratch, rather increase the crews i have already. :)

​The Churchill III has a 78% xp bonus (highest in the game I believe) and not only will it help bring crews up to 100% when you move them around but since new perks/skills are linked to xp it also helps with them as well. I think the Churchill III also only gets +1 MM so it is easier to be top tier.

I got all hyped when the Captured KV-1 came out. I liked that it was a dual trainer and that it was a tier 5 heavy. Then I bought it.  Now I hate it. For best results you have to spam prammo.  My advice would be to wait and look carefully at all your options and as was already said above keep in mind your play style and if you'll use it for training.  I'll get another premium tank (Panther 8.8) but I did my homework this time.

OP, what nations do you enjoy most/ need a low tier for?

Well, I have found tanks in all nations that I enjoy, but since I don't have any french, chinese or czech premiums, I would prefer one of those nations, purely for the crew training. That is not really set in stone though, as I am looking just as much for a fun and/or different tank. Just to elborate, these are the premiums I have, with a short comment on each in brackets:

Blitzen (Fun little clubber when top tier)
Vanquisher (Only played a handful of matches. Not a fan)
Boilermaker (Love it!)
Pz. II D (Basically a turd but i keep it for the novelty factor)
Hidden Stug (Absolutely love it. One of my most played premiums)
Champion (Okay, but nothing special IMO.)
Hammer (Haven't played it much. Good gun, hate mobility. Not really my thing.)
BT-SV (Makes for fun, hectic matches. Quite like it, though turning sucks)
Raseiniai (Good fun when top tier)
Fatherland (Nice and consistent machine. Fun, but sometimes a little boring)
Chi-Nu Kai (Like it. Bit slow, but an efficient support tank)

I think would prefer a nice medium, heavy or perhaps a light. I'm not interested in arty, and a little meh about TD's. I'm planning on grinding out the 121 next, so somethign chinese would be nice, but maybe something american might do it as well, since i only have the Blitzen.

Man, more often than not, when I'm up against a captured kv-1 they do really well. 

 

It is on my list for next Premium tank. 

 

Regular ap rounds are terrible? I don't mind spamming prem rounds ...Lol

 

Seems like decent mobility and speed.
