You know absolutely nothing about how much I've spent on this game.  You can do a lot more with money in Blitz than buying premium tanks.  And I've damn sure spent more than many of the accounts I've seen that got an M60.  All those new accounts with barely any tanks in the garage and barely any battles, are you seriously going to try to say ANY of them have spent more than I have?

 

The M60 wasn't about "big spenders".  WG has flat out admitted it was a social experiment and was given out completely randomly.  How anyone can still believe the "big spender" line amazes me.

 

If Mike doesnt know how much you spent.  Then how do you know how much those new accounts spent?

 

Maybe those guys buys bunch of warchests and wastes all the credits?  Who knows?  How are you so certain that you spent more than them.  There are plenty out there with more money than sense.  Maybe they even actually spam gold with gold.

I'm laughing so hard right now.

 

*People who bought the IS-6 Fearless: Omg, how come WG can just take a tank away that I bought omg. This is illegal, unfair, and dishonest. Boo WG

*Gets Fearless back

*People who WON the IS-6 fearless: WG just devalued the tank and tossed the rarity into the trash

*People who bought the IS-6 Fearless: Well it's Wargaming's company and choice.

 

See anything odd?

Technically, it actually was illegal. 

The IS-6 & IS-6F have the same game resale value. Pixels have Zero value, irl. And at some point every player who has put anything into this game, will lose every cent.

The Winners & the Purchasers, look identical at this point.

So many legal experts playing Blitz apparently. Still, I'd laugh hard if you really believe that there would have been a class action over a pixel tank if WG would not have changed their decision. They are just playing safe and minimizing even almost non-existent risks.

Great decision.  I think it was a bad precedent to go in and take a tank awwy that people had bought and this seems like the proper thing to do.

I just looked. I got 49 premium tanks in my garage right now. And I did get rid of a couple premums in fits of stupid. I'd say I'm a contributing collector. This 1 well make #50. And when I bought it, I didn't know it was given out as a winners tank not to be resold. I only bought it and was constantly criticized for it like I DID IT ON PURPOSE. WHICH I DIDN'T.

No there's not. They made a mistake and put a clan reward tank on sale to gifting and self purchase. This is literally all their fault. Can the players that bought one be blamed? No. War gaming should have refunded the direct transactions and said if you are still interested, you can still buy the IS-6 instead. There is no crisis. Just poor decision making

The risk is more about getting in trouble with Apple or Google about how they treat customers. CA consumer laws are pretty strong and the App Store's are WG's bread and butter. Same reason they never were able to pull the Kenni-Otsu from the game. It was easier to scew over 50 or 80 guys who got the tank as a reward and only can Cry About It, but really have no recourse, since they didn't pay for the tank.

 

The decision is unfortunate for the Fearless owners, who earned the tank, but from WG perspective, they really had no choice.

Simply replace the IS-6 Fearless with a standard IS-6 tomorrow and give each player the option to get a full refund if they no longer want the IS-6 which is identical to the Fearless in terms of stats

What a mistake. I had a Fearless too but I still think it's dirty to have one especially since a lot of my clan earned them. There were not that many given out and because as you said, Sly, it was a given out based on skill (or rigging). I think whoever purchased it should have known it was not a tank that would normally, if ever, be up for sale. If you didn't, then you're just playing stupid because we all know the Fearless was given out on a special occasion for specific players/clans.

 

Congrats, you guys just demonetized one of, if not the, rarest tanks in-game. Enjoy your false glory.

 

I agree. I saw the two tanks in the gift shop and new instantly it was a mistake and it should not have been sold. Leaving the gold just promotes people to take advantage of the bugs while they can, and when there is one in the future (yes, WG will f**k up again) they will do it again.

Dang it.  I was happy that they were removed, because I didn't have the money at the time, and wasn't able to get the tanks.  So I was kind of like "suckers," but I guess it's the opposite now...:(...all I ever wanted was the Snowstorm Jagdtiger!(I don't actually want the Fearless, and think it's just for clan wars players)


AND THE TROLLCANNON STRIKES AGAIN!

Favorite Tanks: Hellcat, ISU-152  ||  Favorite Premiums: IS-6(apparently), T23E3 Nomad, Cruel Twist, T-34-3

Tanks I'm Most Hyped For: Skorpion G, M56 Scorpion(when they go down in price)

I'm the player that wrecks his WR by always switching to different tier and types. But Tier VI and below elite!

As for premium collecting...not counting tech tree vehicles, I'm only missing (big #) at the moment.

And now you're just being argumentative for the sake of arguing.

This is an embarrassing tarnish. When there is a claim to never sell something again theres always a second thought from now on.
