Would've liked to see a different list of tanks to become Black Edition, to be collectible like baseball cards, maybe making different editions of the Black tanks with a different design on them with each new installment (i.e. only releasing 2-3 at a time with a emblem on the side denoting the special event it's released for [100th anniversary of tanks, 5th year of WoT console, etc.]).

 

Regardless, still a cool move for those who missed out or didn't have the cash for them the first time around.

There should be a list of banned words that WG cannot use in this game. Soon, rare. and never are my top 3 picks on this list. Does anyone have a list of tanks that when they were sold they also said they would be rare and never be sold again for one reason or another?

Fair enough. Last time when some of us gave negative feedback, it was because we had already supported the game by buying the standard versions and merely wished for a trade in. As a trade in is an option now, this is fine.

Very dissapointed with this decision. After being so exited with the new 2019 ops structure.

 

Last kept promise broken and credibility on the game down to 0 for me. Offer a refund or something better than a crap logo to compensate at least too.

 

Finally I've decided to stop spending on this game as of today. Good luck with your game movings forward.

Haha, what a move. Now we know what a Promise is worth from Paingod - > Nothing. Let the sneaky sell of Black Tanks in Forum start again.

 

The new ones dont own the org. buyer Emblem? Who wants a second class black tank then?

I think it is safe to say there are going to be more people happy with the decision, than people adversely affected.

 

But before we throw the towel, one way or the other, it would maybe judicious to wait and see what the cost of those is going to be..... I got a feeling, it is not going to be cheap....

Well.....     there are Trade Ins and there are Trade Ins. 

 

How it should work: Regular T34 is 12,000 gold, Black edition is 14,400. Trade in regular T34 + 2,400 Gold difference and receive Black T34. Which still represents spending almost $10 to upgrade the tank that I already owned. This is what everybody wanted to do back when the Black tanks originally came out, and it would have been very fair and very profitable to WG to do it this way. 

 

How it will probably work: Get half of T34 value aka 6,000 Gold value for the trade in against the 14,400 Black T34 price, end up paying 8,400 Gold to get the Black T34. Which represents spending about $34 to upgrade the tank. 

 

At a $10 price point for trading in an IDENTICAL tank I'd probably do it a few times.

 

At $34 PER TANK to get nothing more than a bit of extra XP for crew training (which I do not need for these nations).........    not a chance, and if anyone chose to remain insulted by the whole Black Tanks thing I would understand.

You could always trade them in for something else

War Gaming console developers are a joke ! Can't do anything right this is ridiculous ! The list of things you do isn't reasonable. Where is clan wars ? The stupidest nerf in any game! Also what's up with your trash Instagram??

People that work at WG should be supervise and start looking for new employees cause the ones you have are now completely useless.

Well it is about dang time they finally listened up to the majority of players but don't limit them to only trade-in purchases. Some players may not want to trade in the stock version for the black version and should have a choice. I was out of town when they were first released and only had a limited amount of gold in my account so I was only able to get the STA black version tank at that time via my laptop. If i would have been able to purchase gold without being on my console then I would have had all of them. And no, I don't feel the need to complain or ask to be compensated because I already own one of them but I do want to thank WG for finally unleashing the reins on the ones I missed at the time so I can finally add them to my collection.

Or in my case, since I don't have a T34, I'd have to buy the basic T34 ($50), trade it in immediately for 6k gold against the Black one, or $50+$34 = $84. And that's just for the one tank. While I like that I finally have a chance to get a Black tank, $84 bucks is a little steep for me, so I'll pass. I don't have originals of any of the Black tanks, so I've got nothing to trade in. I guess that makes them a little more exclusive than anyone being able to just buy them outright.

Smart suggestion, but I'll let you do the Spending & Trading In Tanks from this point onwards.

I think the trade-in is optional, they are going for sale again and you have the option of trading in something for them if you want. 

 

They do state you can trade almost anything in toward their purchase, not just the regular version of the specific Black tank you want. 

 

I hope this trade-in program is for buying other tanks as well.

Glad to see these tanks available again!  Really surprised to see so many people whining about it.  More people wanted these tanks to come back than not.  They are giving the community what they asked for and there's nothing wrong with that.  Don't be so bitter!

How are WG going to compensate us then? We paid a rediculously high premium for these black tanks and part of the justification for that was that they were not going to be sold again.

 

Your compensation is having been able to play the tanks and train your crews over the last few years.

I'm sorry wargaming but you have now lost any sense of credibility that I once had in you as a company. Despite numerous assurances that the Black Tanks would NEVER be sold again, I guess the lure of customer's money was too great to ignore. (and yes, I bought the bundle the 1st time, as I did not have any of the regular versions of the tanks in the bundle.

 

This therefore means that any promises made by you have no validity anymore. In retrospect, it is not like this is a one-off occurence. What about the founder's edition tanks that "were never to be sold again", yet the T23E3, Pz V/IV and MTLS-1G14 have been on sale numerous times.

 

I think this is the final straw for me. With the way this game is going, with all the re-skins, poorly implemented mercenaries, mechs (in a tank game, seriously WG?) and no meaningful attempts at balance (Heshstar 275 pen, waffle e100 not removed, pre-nerfed K91 etc) I can only see this game getting further and further into trouble. Which could very well be the reason why WG are re-releasing the black tanks, since the majority of veterans have upped and quit.

 

I honestly hate typing these words, as I love this game with a passion, but I just cannot support a dev team that is full of empty promises and hot air.
