I bought them hoping to get a better tank. Why do you buy them?

I usually earn my premiums since I'm cheap on this game. 

 

But I keep them for crew training. Also with premium matchmaking they end up being my most played because of the current state of matchmaking in this game. 


If I only had a Baneblade....

Oh premium match making, I should have added that to the poll answers!

I am the one who answered "Skip Grind". Playing for hours on a tank I hate to accumulate the necessary XP and the money to go to the next stock bin in the TT? I do not like it.

 

In my garage I no longer have any TT tanks, only premium tanks. It's interesting because I can only use 2 super-trained crews for each nation and move them as I want from one tank to another.

 

Now that I have said that, I must say that on the 92 tanks in my garage, I have a lot of freemium and tanks won in the trunks. Several have been exchanged and I have many that I tried after receiving them but that I do not use (hidden, Javelin, AMX, nomad, M51, honor, IS-2m and others).

 


I use Google translator for english language

Lots of juggling in french text, sometimes translator in trouble with that. If you do not understand what I write, tell me.

Why I buy premiums? It’s a difficult question.

Someone should answer this... I don’t know.

Probably because I’m stupid enough to do this. :facepalm:


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

So you need crutches for the other reasons? :teethhappy:

 

I don't think there's a right or wrong answer to any of those. You're spending money hoping to get something for it...

I know how to read. I also know how to write with capital letters, commas, periods, etc. Maybe I misunderstood, they say that commas can save lives.

 

It sounded like you were saying that buying a premium tank to win was like needing crutches. I was inferring that you need them for crutches for the other reasons, like silver bonuses. Really all of those are crutches (except maybe the nifty paint job).

they in no way give me an advantage in game over another player but go on keep trying to make something out of nothing. I guess the air is too thin for the brain up there in Colorado.

 

also criticisms of grammar is so funny to me because In your reply I can find at least a couple mistakes you made but I guess that doesn’t matter.

The poll really should have allowed multiple responses.  I buy different tanks to fill different roles.  I also buy to collect.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Not a simple answer. It all depends do I wan't to support the game with money and does WG provide tanks that I like to have.  I don't want to have tanks that are bad reskins of existing premiums that I all ready have. Tank needs to bring some fun value worth of it's price tag. If new premium costs same as new game title the expectations for fun value is high and usually WG nerfs the fun out of new tank or tank is just a reskin with autoloader so I have started to be carefull what I buy. I'm also getting bored with same maps so my money flows to other direction than to this game.

I get them to have them, I like the looks of the tanks. Take the paladin for example it looks smart. Also, the amount of tanks i have acquired playing ops/comps give me them. And the chests that give me out gold as duplicates so i look and see what's worth having. If theres nothing I save it. I do own alot of premiums right enough, I think around 60+ tier 8s alone.

Support the game. I usually don't play them.

I've got plenty, premiums and freemiums. I haven't bought a tank for yonks though because there's nothing I really want. But why did I spend money on tanks? Most of the above reasons and because I can. Money is not a concern so why not buy what I want? On the other hand, if I was unable to afford to buy a premium tank without worrying about the cost then I'd definitely not buy them.
