Well done WGCB for allowing everyone to trade their Tier 5 and below tanks only for an alternative, good job.

 

How many more ways can you think of to alienate players wallets?

 

Keep up the good work.

Huh, wot?

 

Edit: did some research, get it now. OP shouldn't be surprised though, WGCB is still a company that has to make money to keep the lights on, not a charity.

As an example, take, if you will, the Legion 59-Patton available for trade-in on the Premium tech tree.

 

Why?  Can I not? Trade anything over Tier 5?

 

 

btw, the clue was, 'in full swing'

Hello, only a selection of Premium tanks can be traded-in each event towards the purchase of another Premium. I'm going to assume that you don't own any of the eligible Premium tanks that are higher than Tier 5. :honoring:

What you do is grab yourself a load of gold (give WGCB real money) go to the Premium tech tree line and look for the little green symbols that WGCB deem are "eligible" to trade this time around.  If, you, yourself, have, an, "elibible" tank in return,  WGCB will offer you an absolute pittance in return for an "eligible" tank.

 

If you don't have an "eligible" tank, don't worry, you can always trade one of your lower tier, worthless piles of crap for an "eligible" flavour of the month, pile of crap.

 

Piles of crap that are now "eligible" this time round, will be deemed "non-elligible" next time rouind.

 

But don't worry, you can still always trade your, worthless lower tier "eligible" piles of crap next time round for more "eligible" exorbitant piles of crap.

 

With me so far?

Goto the Premium tech tree and your looking for tanks with the green recycle icon. Then press triangle on PS4 and Y on Xbox. You'll get a list of the available trade in tanks.

 

Ain't worth it though. Looks like they've hand picked the tanks with low trade in value.

I'm still waiting for a trade in where I can trade several tanks at once, or get rid of the exact tanks I want for premiums I actually want. 
 

The trade in is not a bad idea, the bad part is restricting the tanks available.

Lol, yeah I was paraphrasing Claus with a little of my own 'artistic licence' thrown in for good measure.

 

The fact remains WGCB will, and, do so, continue to move the goal posts to suit themselves as and when they see fit.

 

The ever decreasing/increasing nerf barometer, depending on your view point ...

 

Clearly my Scourge/T95/Snakebite/131/BogHorror et al, are not deemed "[edited]eligible" this time.  Where as they have, EVERY OTHER [edited]TIME!

 

Just saying.

 

Wallet closed.

WG of course could make it so you could trade multiple tanks for one.  But why would they, when they can squeeze extra money out of there cash cows?

I got 178 prem tank's including every german prem the only tier 8 i can trade in is a td i love then i can only trade in 9 more that i also love.

Trade in feature should allow all prem tank's we own to be able to trade and every prem TT tank apart from black should be on trade in its another stupid useless feature from WG 


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

I haven't participated in the trade in events simply for that reason, if I could trade in multiple premium tanks towards one new premium tank then it would be worth it, but as it stands at the moment I don't think it's worth it.

If you don't like your premiums and you don't like the premiums in game it sounds like the problem solved itself and you don't need to worry About spending  money rather than complain like a child who didn't get their way

I would love to trade in a dozen tier 2 & 3 premiums for a nice 8.

It is hard to get a game below tier 5 these days.

 

How about having a 2X bonus for a specific tier below 5 some day.

This would generate enough players to have single tier matches!
