So I was looking at trading my Fatherland in for the Pudel earlier and I would have gotten 4,064 gold as part of the trade. Now when I look it says free and 1,978,240 silver refund. I like how my exception ticket hasn't been touched, nor have we heard of the correct price for Tiger Power but WG.managed to change the refund. 

 

That excess gold was going to help buy a big tank package I am now going to pass on. Good job WG!

As was I. 

 

Either Wargaming decided to pull a deal from its consumers or its glitched. We have not had confirmation yet, but it appears like the earlier.

No doubt the former, despite how they said they had two  tests of the trade-in program and were happy with it.

Where was it said you would get the excess in gold? It says in the news article that it's silver

I couldn't find in the print where it said about any type of currency as your payback. But numerous people have made transactions earlier today and received the difference in gold. And that is how it should be. Silver return is garbage when you are already only getting 50% value on trade-in.

We could do it for Gold earlier, I traded Fatherland for Minuteman + 900 cashback (I would have done even without the Cashback), I then spent 700 Gold of that cashback to get the HMH AMX 13 57 with the T34.

  • Note: If the trade in value of the vehicle you are trading in is worth more than the vehicle you are trading for then you will be refunded the difference in silver.

It was for the previous trade ins and it was showing gold earlier today. As mentioned in a different thread, just expect the worst deal possible from WG.

ok, I wasn't aware people were getting gold back. I'm not sure the intent was to ever give gold as in the Dec trade-in faq it says about giving excess as silver as well.

Well I just got home from work and glad I checked the forum first.  Still got time to make the needed trades.  Hopefully this gets straightened out.

No gold refund, no trades from me. Goof on their behalf if they allowed gold refunds to some earlier they should stick to it.

Sorry but it hasn't been. I traded the last time there was a trade in and got gold. People earlier today got gold.

As in "always" you mean times not from 3 am mdt to 12:00 pm mdt earlier today, right?

Its GOLD people, yes GOLD refund. But you only get half the gold value on your trade in, so few tanks will actually get you a refund, but it is gold. Any silver refund you are seeing is for equipment, but not complex equipment, that will be destroyed unless you unmount it

What did you trade? The way I understood the last couple was that you could only trade in lower or equal tiers so the chance of having anything left over would be low.

I agree that it was Gold but it has been changed.
