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

 Disregard my prior statement, it no longer shows a gold refund like it did this morning.

They found another way to screw it up.

Had I done it this morning :facepalm: I might have bought some gold to get something big, now I'm not doing anything. They lose out again

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

 

I seemed to get the Pudel change right on the cut-off point.

I was going to go for a FV201 and a KV-122, but I'm certainly not doing so for a silver refund.


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

They did this the last time black tanks were sold, just in a different way.

 

They were all announced at a discounted price, I'm not sure exactly what is was roughly like 50% off, then they edited the news feed and changed it to 40% off. Again I'm not certain on the exact numbers, but in principle the deal was worse then initially stated. There were many players that didn't buy them at the time because they felt misled by the initial announcement. 

 

This time it's even worse as people who were on earlier literally got an offer not honored to the rest of us after 5 years of playing. terrible costumer relations whether accidental or not. Many of us saw those figures and were planning on making purchases tonight. Now we have to purchase even more gold then we already were to make the garage moves we planned this morning/afternoon.  Makes me and I'd assume others not want to buy any at all and miss out on the black tanks again. ugh

 

I love this company, but it's getting harder and harder to defend them.

Meh.  I was able to trade a bad tier 8 (Fatherland) for a mostly OP Tier 7 w/ PMM, but got some silver back instead of gold. 

 

It was still a great deal.

 

Plus, they are more or less giving out gold every month with the Winter Games Op, and the Long Haul Op gets you some scratch too.

 

Someone made a mistake.  They fixed it.  It happens.

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

 

i received silver in the last trade-in event. however i was not trading tier 8s for 6s. maybe thats why

Well, I was going to trade in my Fatherland for a Pudel and then put the balance toward another tank when I get home from work. But, if there's no gold coming at me, then it's not worthwhile to me. So WG, you would have made some money on me today but now you won't.

T95E2 should work ok. I only got 100 cashback for the Pudel so you would only lose out on 100 Gold. Maybe the AMX CDC as well.

I was more interested in the 4k in gold to put towards one of the other tier VIIIs I want and looking at the Pudel as a bonus. Hopefully WG owns up to what they did and switches it back to gold for the rest of us that work for a living and couldn't get on this morning.

Just posted this on my Twitter so i'll leave it here too as had a friend asking :)

 

My guess it was patched. According to the Portal, it was never meant to have Gold Cashback so the early people got lucky and used that exploit which shouldn't have existed. Now it's back to Silver as the Portal stated (which Badger pointed out). People are mad but it wasn't meant to exist so i can't complain too much.

 

It is a bummer for you guys however and i feel bad for those that missed out.

Well that is unfortunate. It is what it is, I suppose. But I am disappointed, as I spent all day debating what I wanted to trade for the Pudel and then what else I could put the difference towards. I mean, we are only getting 50% gold on our trade anyways, so what is the big deal. Free tank or one that was purchased with money, it's an obvious major downgrade to be able to receive a gold payback anyways. Plus I'd bet most people were looking to use the difference to put towards another purchase. So WG still would make out. I rarely call WG out but thos was either poorly thought out and/or poorly executed.

That is soo naughty of wg changing that in secret i also traded in my fatherland earlier for the a45 black and gave me 2k gold i was looking at another trade in that offerd gold as part of the deal but wg changed the deal that is bad not even notifing us of the change i feel bad for the americans and other's that have missed out on decent deal's.

 

If this is how wg plan on doing deals count me out its bad enogh they only give us less than 50% of the tank value off another tank that is lower teir!


WG support say when you sell a tank your crew sell's with it be careful commanders

I put a request in to get my fatherland back early this morning (normally it takes less then an hour for them to look at it) and they waited all day until after they changed the gold to silver to look at it and give it to me.

I was tempted to trade the fatherland  this morning but not really fussed.   It's pretty shady for all those that wanted to trade but will get shafted.
