I've heard rumors that if you ask WG sometimes they will give you a chance to buy a premium tank not for sale in the game. Now I know some tanks like the Blaze won't be on sale again, but say for example I wanted the Panther 8.8 or Pz. 5/4 and asked they might give me an offer.

 

If this is the case who would/should I ask? And where? Here on the forums or via email?

I've been in a bad mood all day ... up until now.

 

Thank you so much for the belly laugh of a joke :)


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Then send in a support ticket -- prove me wrong.

This isn't a joke

He is real.

Atleast partialy. If you go to one of the events such as the one on the aircraft carrier you get a free tank of your choice besides the keni otsu and the m60 and probably the is6 fearless.

If you are inactive for a long time they might give you an incentive sale. Other than that there is the tech tree premiums.

Having WG give you a free tank because you attended one of their events -- is NOT what the OP is asking about.

 

He is asking -- can I get WG to sell me a tank that is not currently in the tech tree?

 

That's the funny part :)

I want a TD that I played against last night. Holy crap it tore me a new one. It had what seemed like an extremely fast reload. Tier 7.

 

If I had a chance to buy that I would. Just have to remember what the dang thing was. something something #1. Can't remember

That would be an E25

Sounds about right. I just remember I was in a SU-152 and I was playing against it like a "normal" TD expecting a longish reload. NOPE. This thing was spitting lead like crazy at me. Probably three shots to my one, heck maybe more. IDK, I was dead fairly quick. lol

Yup .. E25 #1 (I am not sure that mine has the #1)

 

I find it really hard to drive.  But I also struggle with all turretless tanks.   Sk8er has a great video for it -- it is his favorite tank.

 

Peace-
