Just wondered what the majority did with their unused premium tanks? I have 108 premiums, a few are keepers, a few are possible trade ins (future trade ins) but the majority just sit in the garage. Do you guys sell these or just keep them? I was thinking of just keeping a couple of low tiers then the best of the higher tiers for silver grinding/crew training. I know some cycle through their premiums daily to get the x2 bonus but iwould need a 36 hour day! 

Your thoughts ladies and gents?

Many wouldn't agree with me but i don't like clutter around the house. I sell the ones I never play(haven't played for months) You can always buy back later if you wish... this is my 3rd t8me I've owned a jt88. Almost like buying a new tank. Just my opinion though

Yeah that’s been my motto but I was cycling through today and it struck me there’s a heck of a lot I’ve not played for months, mainly lower tiers

I am grinding silver atm to buy back my sold premiums, hoping to be able to trade my unused ones. Would be nice if WG would allow us to sell them for half their gold value at least and collect gold so i can use that gold otherwise and get rid of my dusted premiums.

But WG refuse to make profit with my gold it seems. :sceptic:

same here, that is why i set my self

the goal of at least one marking all tier 5’s and up, and not buying any lowtiers anymore because tier 3 doesnt work for earn ops anymore

That was another reason. I would never sell tanks like the locust as it’s just fun to play, but I have things like blitzen and mtls-1g14 (the same tank) ripper and m4a2e4 the same tank, vanquisher and sentinel the same tank, knight and Cromwell b the same tank the list goes on not to mention pz II JPS!

I would never sell that silver jackpot machine lol it just prints silver. Still don’t play it much nowadays so you may have a point

Indeed, I have to admit it's not one I like to play, but th3 amount of x2 silver ops I had sitting there was ridiculous , so it came back and made a few million for me. It will  go into retirement home again in a few months I'm sure

I would trade in my unwanted premiums rather than sell them for silver. But, keeping a meh premium--that I won or was given for free--seems silly to me. Especially now that we have a trade in system.

Now that the exception policy has changed and you have to pay twice the silver you recieve when you sold a premium tank, selling any of them isn't a great idea. That said if you're not going to play it again then why not, I've sold a few premium tanks that I have absolutely no desire to get back, but if I do change my mind they're always there I suppose.

Yeah you’re right of course but some just aren’t worth trading for tradings sake. If the trade in system was expanded then it might be but good call

I have a few I’d be willing to part with if I saw they brought something I wanted into purchase range. So far I’ve just sold earned mercenary tanks, but like I said, I have a few sitting around I’d part with if the right situation presented itself.

I keep them.

 

I'm not short on silver credits, and surely I don't need any more empty garages 

And every once in a while it's good to take one of those little rascals out for a spin :)

Only recalled selling the vanquisher.

 

I don't think anybody would disapprove of my decision there.

I take it once you’ve sold a merc tank you can’t do the earn op again? You must buy it back with silver?

well, I sold it for gold, it was the absolution, traded it in for the fv201 black. Then I saw that other mercenaries were eligiblefor the trade in program, so I’m earning a second one now, the biggest one they have, in hopes of trading it in for a nice gold discount for some future tank. Good question on re earning the tanks though. I do not know.

I have 40 tanks in my garage, 36 premium and 4 level X. I have some premium that I could separate without much grief but are all tanks that deserve to get used to, I keep them so in reserve for later, when I would like to take the time to tame one in particular.

 

My approach, however, is different, I think I already have too many tanks in my garage, it will really have that the next premium tank to be put on sale is "WoW" for me to buy.

I've sold a few premiums (pz II J, leaf blower, FCM 36) and I've so far traded in one. I'm pretty good at knowing whether or not a tank is for me or not for me, and I'd rather have the garage space occupied by something I play. I like the trade-in program, and I like how you can see up front how much you still have to pay for the tank, and how much silver you get in change. I just wish more tanks were available for trade, especially at slightly lower tiers.

I have 108 premiums, 96 Tech tree tanks (17 level x) 24 premiums below tier 5 that are pretty useless now for ops
