I put in a ticket regarding the issue and asked for equal treatment with people who got gold refund

Looks like I got lucky then. Good. I do think the argument about putting the gold you get back into other tanks has some merit. On the other hand, it does feel weird to me to be able to earn gold with trading in tanks I got for free. As it seems, WG agrees on the latter one. I don’t necessarily disagree.

 

The way this was botched once again, probably in the communication between different departments is just plain ridiculous. I mean, fix your communication already WG.

Well perhaps its on purpose, a planned "mistake" the early bird die hards get the rewards!

It's difficult to believe that they consistently make the same mistake accidentally.

Someone should do a poll, (polls are rare in the forums :teethhappy: ) a poll about getting rid of the trade in program because it does not give gold back or keep it as is with silver refunds. :coin: I'm pretty sure players will call for a boycott ;)

 

Too many Polls lately lol. It's like something went wrong, Instant Poll and they get it wrong anyway by not adding all possible possibilities, I've not voted on a few as it's only Yes or No, no Inbetween.

When the trade in got activated , it offered gold Back if your tank even at half off went over purchase price of new tank , it disappeared after several hours , waiting for WG’s statements regarding this ...

As for my thoughts on the Gold thing, I'm glad i did it as i got an HMH AMX 13 57 which i wouldn't have got otherwise but on my Alt today, i traded Fatherland for the Minuteman regardless of the Silver (It allowed me to kit up the Minuteman on an account where Silver is precious). Why did i make the trade?

 

a) I don't like Fatherland

b) I considered the Gold thing, Not as a right but as a Bonus like Games with Gold

 

Yes the Gold thing was very nice but if it wasn't meant to exist then i consider it a Bonus if i got the opportunity in the first place. I however do agree that it sucks for people who didn't manage to take advantage of the limited exploit.


i generally post more News on Twitter these days but "may" post on Forum from time to time on my Future Vehicles Thread

Well WG should take responsibility. That is what respectable companies do. You still have to pay 100% price and only get 50% of value on the tank you trade in. Secondly. People say that you turn in free tanks for gold - it is not the case. You have devoted resources for acquiring one (either time or money). Both of them are needed for the game to run. So it would only seem logical that offering gold refund gives players some flexibility in return for designing the garage inventory as they see it fits their needs. This is how I see it would benefit the players who in return are willing to open coffers to invest more into the game they like or have positive feedback from WG

As i said earlier in the thread from what i can see there was never meant to be a gold refund, it says that in the current news article and the FAQ for the first December trade-in:

 

Block Quote

 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.

 

https://console.worl...best-trade-deal

 

Block Quote

If you trade in a tank for a lower priced premium, and there is still change left from the tank you traded, will the refund be in gold or silver?

If the trade-in value is greater than the tank being purchased, players will receive the remaining value in Silver

 

http://forum-console...am-is-now-live/

 

People calling this dodgy/shady etc its not, its just another mistake on their part.  Nobody is being duped here, its clear that you're getting silver when you do it, no?

 

Those calling for everyone to get it, its not fair etc.. its just one of those things, some people are lucky, some people are not. If a shop messes up and gives your mate something cheaper or extra, you try it on and get the same thing right? you don't run down there and start demanding you get the same thing

 

Yes, WG are in the wrong as yet again they've messed up and again not communicated after the fact but thats about it.

Agree gold compensation would have brought way more income compared to silver. I am now hesitant to even do fatherland to 131 trade. People loose 50% of value anyway when they do trade in. So why should they loose even more gold when they trade for less valuable tank? Greedy [edited]...

I was really happy for their trade in event when i saw gold compensation and my only wish top of that was open whole TT to trade for.  You [edited]ed my goodwill again.

Wargaming should hire you. You have more interest in defending them then they themselves do. Not one response in this thread or in the feedback thread on the developer bulletin. The mistake should be at least acknowledged.

Don't confuse me not agreeing with the current reason for carrying pitchforks as defending them. in my last sentence i have said they messed up and haven't communicated about it.

The fact that it has been 24hrs and not even a response to any of the threads (to my knowledge) or any kind of statement is pretty ridiculous. I think we all know that it isn't going to change but it is just something that should've at least been acknowledged. Numerous people did get gold and many of us were planning on getting the gold back and making a 2nd transaction afterwards, before they ghosted everything. I would be salty about it still but my attention has turned to waiting for my ticket response (after the bonehead move I made to buy a tank on accident lol).

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!

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. 

Hello tankers,

 

The refunds are meant to be done in silver.  Presently, our first party partners are the actual gold vendors, and consequently, refunds have to be made in Silver when trading via the trading system.

By first party partners I assume you mean MS and Sony?

Thank you for the response. That was basically all I wanted. I ended up making a different transaction now knowing that silver was being paid back rather than gold. All good though. I'll save the Fatherland to trade in for the next one. :honoring:

Right. This makes it even more difficult to understand for me personally. So MS and Sony are in charge of gold compensation? And they do let you guys give gold away for Ops, but not for trading tanks? So that means you messed up the first hours of the trading program, I guess?

Considering I have over 40mm silver, this decision does not appeal to me.
