Update: Black Edition Tanks

wot_banners_article_684x280_dfcvawj

Tankers last week Wargaming introduced Black Edition Tanks.

The first was the T34 B. It was sold in 2 bundles , “Ultimate”at €59.99 and “Supreme” at €99.99 packages. This ment if you had the standard T34 you were buying the same Tank again just to get a skin and the extras. So after the negative feedback they received Wargaming have decided on a “refund” of sorts.

From Wargaming.

 We will introduce the T34 B for an additional week in a “tank only” version starting tomorrow! Owners of the original tanks will be eligible for a 50% discount on the “Back in Black” versions of the same vehicles during this December’s “Back in Black” offers. This discount will be applicable to the tank itself – so this affects the price of future “Tank only”, “Ultimate” and “Supreme” packages.

For everyone who purchased a T34 B Ultimate or T34 B Supreme package and owns a T34, we will be crediting 50% of the tank’s Gold value (6,000) to your account over the weekend.

Thank you very much for your honest and constructive feedback on this topic, and please accept my personal apology for this event. Please continue to share your opinions with us.

    Can you even begin to imagine how shitty, and I mean absolutely shitty, their sales for the T34 B must have been to issue an apology, a refund and an offer with a 50% discount for gamers already owning the regular version of the tank?

    Christmas has come early. Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

    Not in my wildest dreams would I have expected this move from WG, but all the more kudos to them for it.

        Yeah I also saw some of them getting wrecked by arty (it’s what usually happens to T34s so no surprise) … I guess they weren’t happy about that and the fact they bought a shitty tank overall.

  3. I’m genuinly surprised by this… but still confused as to why they didn’t just offer the owners of the T34 the option to just buy a black camo that gave increased profit. I would have paid 3k gold for an “epic” skin.

    I could just buy this now but I really don’t want double ups of the same tank regardless

  5. Pff….this isn’t out of any good will tbh. It’s because sales were shit and they are doing a PR stunt to hopefully make more money.
    How about for once you fix things and do things that don’t directly increase sales and result in instant profit.
    Then we know if it’s just a PR stunt or if you actually give a shit….

    The only T-34B I saw on the NA server was a WG employee driving it around. I congratulate the WoT community for boycotting this bullshit excuse of a tank and instead paying the cards against humanity team with their hole.

  8. If, as stated above, they only sold less than 1500(EU server) (whereas T26E5 and Liberte sold over 17k each) then indeed this would seem to be a move to increase sales that are low, not a move because they are sorry. If they were sorry they would get rid of the still ridiculous packs and just sell the camo. And a standalone T34. Instead though, they see NA and EU as whales, hence the huge price differential and different marketing strategy than with Russia. Same old shit.

    While T34B is far from successful in ASIA, especially when you see the abundance of T26E5 and Mle.49 soon after its being offered and long after it in tier 8, you can still see some T34B in matches.

    And i suspect if they also doing this in ASIA, more people will buy T34B just because, but i doubt it.

    Bought for 22 Euro, because it is a good offer for a hard hitting tier 8 heavy. Especially considering that is about to receive buff to gun handling and view range.

    And I have crews on the 3rd and going on the 4th skill that need all the training they can get.

    What really surprised me that there were people who paid 99 Euros for literally an ugly AF repaint of an already existing tank. And I guess the increased profitability too, but meh.
