Even if I could afford it right now I mean... Wow wargaming. No wonder you have a revenue problem from blitz... Even a traditionally high-spender will have trouble accepting the prices you charge for premiums these days.

There are already plenty on the battlefield so WG didn't price everyone out of the market.

I hope this isn't the new thing, pricing premiums double what they are worth. I this continues, I bet sales will drop significantly.

Yeah well there's always a sucker or two. Remember a few people actually paid like what was it $US 55? For the O-47 (the 'O' stands for "ugly-pile-of-junk")

 

But you won't see commercial success with such sales as you will throwing out JTig8.8 and T-34-85 whatevers at 20-30 bucks a pop.

based on the warhammer event, Tankenstein re-release and now this... Yes that's the new thing.

While the pricing is high I much prefer a straightforward price to some gambling chest event.

Pricing reflects value of spare parts for equipment slots.

Yeah. I get that it's a "value-added" rip-off. That's often the case with premiums. You know "get tank x with x thousand gold and 30 days premium time"  or what have you. That's normal. Are you suggesting WG is testing the waters to see of their frustrating 3.8 equipment system will help them juice whales? Because that sounds just like em.

I really think they should stop including other things beside the "main course" in the bundles. Adding stuff like boosters, premium time, gold, etc. pumps up the price significantly, and I'm not really interested in the extra bells and whistles. This means that to buy the tank, I need to pay for things along with it (that carry a hefty price tag). If they gave us an option just for the tank, I think their sales would significantly increase.

     I have been trying to put a value on parts and been unable to. After 3.8 and everyone yelling money grab, yet parts have never really been for sale left me baffled. While I have been unsuccessful in putting a value on parts it looks like WG has an idea of what 3.8 should cost and is reflected in the price for tier 2 equipment.

Right. So this is what corporations do when they are trying to increase "revenue intensity" - you see this with things like major telecoms and fast food outlets: put together a value-added bundle and either remove or over-charge the á la carte option.

I predict they'll make a grand total of $88 from this sale. That's from Forgotten_Fox and Crusader6 purchasing them. Quite an intense revenue they've raked in.

It looks like the less expensive bundle is $48 Canadian, that seems a bit steep to me!

I'm seeing a few of them in battle but not lots. May be an O-47 level flop
