I think the name change to "Super Savings" was a good one.  It makes more sense than "Personal Offer".  Doesn't really impact game play or anything, but still a good change.

Can you add a way to disable ‘Super savings’

It just scares the poop out of me when i spam A at the end of a battle to skip all the popup trash and a quick scam pops up.

Perhaps winning a CW skin could be restricted or only earned on CW games, ie relevant to,choice of game.

Perhaps WWII players could get a camo voucher or something instead.

Just sayin'.

Dang, was hoping for an era 2 light tank change or two (armadillo nerf)

Our ideas hold no water yet we use them as a dam

The new Era 3 Premium is no big deal. Does not affect the balance in any way.

The only recent problem in Era 3 is the MM loading one team up with Top of Era tanks over the other (8 top of era vs 4 Top of Era).

That is the current Era 3 problem.

Spamming A won't purchase it. It requires a player to Press and Hold to purchase.:honoring:

Same could be said if people only enjoy CW then earn WW2 Skins.

Better System would be a choice at the end between the Skin or 2 Camo Vouchers. It would require 1 more battle as you would have to select the prize, much like Monster Event.

It needs tuning for sure.

Heh, the Armadillo won't be a problem in Era 3. It would really struggle. I don't think moving it to Era 3 is the solution to it anyway.

It should be made Top of Era 2, cut down the module damage, and/or cut out the bounces you get on it's armor. This wuld solve alot without nerfing it too badly.

I had to pop in and say, it was clear what you were saying/asking. 

That's just a perfect example of one of his classic, "answer the question without aswering the question."  You may have already experienced in the past.

 


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

huh, it's almost as if they aren't thinking any of it through from any perspective. 

Or they are and it's all working as designed.
