Good day everyone,
Yesterday the announcment of the Black Edition tanks for WoT Console was met with fairly negative reception (from the community, and your guys’ votes here). Complaints ranging from these being yet another series of reskins to prices being increased from there original announcments.
Well, at least part of those complaints have been adressed by Console Creative Director TJ Wagner, aka. PAINGod:
Dear Paulie P (you knucklehead you),
When I left you in charge of the Ironclad lot so I could supervise the production of these once in a lifetime “Black Edition” tanks, I thought to myself “There’s no way he could screw this up!” Things were actually looking pretty good. Discounts were a bit stingy on the daily deals but they sold surprisingly well. Pretty good staff you got working for you there.
Then, I wake up this morning to an inbox full of complaints all about the “Black Edition” tanks that I’ve been working so hard on. You call those deals?! Did you fail out of kindergarten math? On top of it all, it’s Black Friday and supposed to be the biggest sales of the year!
I got thousands of these Black tanks on the way to the lot right now — THOUSANDS! You and the team need to get to fixing this, NOW. So, here’s what you’re going to do, increase the discounts!
- Back in Black Mega Bundle: 35% Off
- Back in Black Ultimate Bundle: 30% Off
- Back in Black Duo (I, II, III) Bundles: 20% Off
- Individual Black Edition Tank Bundles: 15% Off
You and the team need to get the word out. And before you ask, I don’t care if some of them are better deals than the normal tanks. Don’t forget to mention these Black Edition tanks earn 75% more Tank XP per battle.
DON’T SCREW THIS ONE UP!
The Big Boss,
While a nice gesture, a few of the console community have pointed out that some of the bundles are still more expensive than there original announcment prices (ex.STA-2 Black Edition: Originally 7,400 gold, went up to 8,700 gold, now 7,800 gold).
The original prices were admitted to be an error on WarGamings part, but thats little consolation to players who already spent massive amounts of money to buy these, only to find out its still not enough.
What do you guys think? Is the gesture by WG Chicago a good enough gesture? Or should they have dockedcthe prices down to their original announcment prices?
