Rental Tank Bug/Exploit


for those who are unaware on the past 24h and since the release of the 9.15 patch there’s a bug exploit that when you sell/remove rental tanks,  it only notify you for small sales of ammunition and consumables but it will give you for the vehicle’s credit value (unlisted) as well . Some players got 8 to 12 Million Credits from this already.


For those on NA, tough luck, its already fixed (came on today’s micropatch), Ghost Prime, a WG NA Community Coordinator gave the following statement:

Dear Tankers,

Thank you for pointing out the issue with the rental system where you could sell the rentals for credits after the 9.15 update.

Good news! This morning’s update has fixed this issue, and selling rental will no longer give credits in return.  For those of you that have sold your rentals for the extra credits, how do you plan to spend them?

Please create a ticket to support if you have any questions or should any issues arise.


However, EU hasn’t micro-patched yet, they will tomorrow (From 06:00 to 06:45 CEST).


Oh Wargaming you done goofed up…

      1. you complete mission, mission gives you rental. Rental appears in your garage. You will find it by having a different colour and “rental” written

        It’s real 😀 I got 2 million from my rented Jagdtiger 88 😀 Gold cost is 10’000 gold and 400 credits per gold, so:
        10’000 * 400 = 4’000’000 / 2 = 2’000’000 😀 😀 😀

    I am from the NA server – my understanding is that it didn’t work on Rampage tanks, only the expired rentals in your garage(KV-5, Panther 8,8, AMX CDC etc). I may or may not have made 16mil 🙂

      There was two missions on EU a few months ago. You could get AMX CDC or JgdTiger 8.8 for 3 days. On NA server those missions are more common.
      Rental tanks stayed in garage after rental period (in their own slot). You could remove them but you didn’t get anything for it, except small amount of credits if you sold ammo.
      With 9.15 you could sell them for their full price in credits.

    So, yet again, the response to players exploiting the game is to let them keep their stuff and do nothing in particular about it. Way to address the issues.

    So the response to players exploiting the game is, yet again, to do basically nothing and allow them to keep their stuff. Way to address the issues, WG.

        Regardless of if it effects other players or not, the fact remains that people blatantly exploited the game and will receive zero issues from it. Any exploits must be punished, even if it’s something as simple as just deducting the money back out with a warning. To do anything else undermines the competitive nature of the game, and proves once again that “exploit early, exploit often” is the method to get ahead. Nobody cares if you cheat your way to victory in a single player game. Giving people the equivalent of multiple free T10 tank purchases in this game undermines the effort every legit player went through to grind out cash for theirs.

        Either all players get free 16.000.000 credits or all exploiters get their credits taken away.

      3. fighting_falcon93 says:

        Aaah you’re one of those honest people… Oh look there’s 2 million in front of my nose, but nooo, I’m actually gonna grind them honestly instead 😐 And how do you want WG to tell apart the ones that actually wanted to sell/remove it and those who exploited the bug? Wow does people like you actually think before you write or do you just roll your face on the keyboard and are happy with whatever turned up? 😀

      I bet you 2 didnt get the credits, otherwise you wouldn’t be complaining at all… Why is people so disgustingly envious when someone gets a lucky shot? I was adviced of this rental stuff, I tried and It didn’t work, but it’s not harmful for anyone but WG. WHO CARES? Jealous bastards everywhere…

      1. Anonymous says:

        Woo, woo! All aboard the moral bankruptcy train! This wasn’t a “lucky shot”, it was an obvious exploit of game mechanics. And since when is being an honest person some sort of negative accusation? Grow a pair and work for your stuff. People cheat, get called on it, and your response is to complain about people who want a fair experience?

        Also, if someone just wanted to get rentals out of their garage, then surely they wouldn’t object to having the unexpected credits taken away? It’s also exceptionally easy to track where credits came from in an account. Everything you do with your account is logged (see restoration of sold vehicles, for reference), and assuming their DB people aren’t complete idiots it should take all of about 5 minutes to write an SQL script (or noSQL, if they roll that way) to parse out sales of rental vehicles and deduct that back out. If I had access to their tables, I could do it for them.

      2. Roland says:

        Honest? The only “victim” here, was WG, everyone else is either one of the lucky “exploiters” or a just a jealous whiner… Period. All the other stuff you said it’s just chit chat…

    Hey Rita, I think I found something that may interest you. On the WoT Launcher on NA atleast, A picture flashes up of the T-34-88. Was wondering if you would like to see screenshot.

    1. fighting_falcon93 says:

      The kind of people that would rather spend hours grinding than earning some millions the smart way 😛

      Funny you should say that but I sold all rental tanks on EU a while ago and I never get them back even when rental missions are complete.

  5. siralexice says:

    I can’t f* find the rentals but this f* game just popped up the notice IS7 rental expired. How the hell did it expire when it wasn’t anywhere in my garage?

      1. Renarde Martel says:

        You can find them through Armory. The exploit is talking about rental premiums though, which only NA had IIRC, the Rampage tanks sell for only 30k or so.

    1. Homer_J says:

      Rampage tanks were worth 0 credits anyway. This only worked on the regular rentals and EU didn’t get a lot of those. They were a big thing on the NA server.

    no announcements for 9.15 in SEA, so prolly the WG SEA guys will fix it before they launch it to us (providing someone told Tan abt it)

      1. Yes, I might be idiot enough not to exploit it. Anyway, are there players who really do nothing else except look for such bugs, because I’ve never considered this idea, and some other things I’ve witnessed in other games.

    2. Why would players be banned ? Because WG created a bug ? Because that’s totaly fair to you maybe

      No there wont be bans, this doesnt ruin tbe game, WG aknowledged their mistake and patched it, and they know it’s their fault if players would get more credits for a few days.

      1. lameminator says:

        Just a max. day or few hours. They’re far from EFE, so I would not be too tough with them.

  7. fighting_falcon93 says:

    Thank you Rita and whoever that found out about this, two much needed millions got cashed in 😀

    I’m on EU and had the rental JT88 which I used as free barracks. Sold it for 2.39 Million yesterday. 🙂

  9. Steve says:

    Lets be honest, whats the big deal if you got 6 to 16 million? WG acts like the money comes out of their bank… (shakes head) Even worse for us on SEA, we still do not have 9.15 and NO word when we will git it. typical shit we get on SEA.

  10. Rides says:

    I made 10.4 mill off the glitch, I wasn’t going to do it. But then I remembered when RU got to keep all the money they made reselling good ammo after the first big gold shell price readjustment. That was fixed before it when live on EU or NA… Well now we even 😛

  11. SCHWEDENTANK says:

    Hi Rita! I just got a massive bug where my PREMIUM ISU-122 DISAPEARED FROM MY TANK carousel or w.e its called. But its still listed in the Armory that I own it. I have tried to re-log in but its gone..I dident sell it eather..It just vanished after returning from a game. Have you heard if this is a commen bugg?

      Tried to check the filters? You can easily “lose” a tank by not paying attention to the first win of the day’s filter

  12. The rental IS-7, 50 B, and T-62 aren’t bugged. The bugged rentals refer to the rental premium tanks that some servers like NA get, where they’re able to test the Mutz, or KV-5, etc. for a month before they can no longer use them. EU gets no such specials because we’re hated, so we don’t get ridiculous credit exploits 🙁

    And thats why WG is a fucking joke. “Thanks for reporting the issue guys. Any who got free millions of silver from this have fun TROLOLOLOLOLOL”
