WoT Console Black Friday “Deals”

Good day everyone,

Yesterday World of Tanks Console announced a series of tanks up for sale this Black Friday. A new series of never before seen premiums such as the T-34-88, or the AMX Chaffee? Well…

A new group of reskinned premium tanks from the tech tree. The only new one of the bunch is the British FV201 (A45), which is only available in bundles ranging in price from 38-58,000 gold (around $157 minimum with current gold bundles).

As well as the ‘Black Edition’ tanks, WG CB is selling the previously released flag tanks: T26E4’Freedom’, ‘Motherland’, Cromwell ‘Knight’ etc…

As one can imagine, the reception from the console community has been at best mixed, but anger, and frustration over yet more reskins of tanks being given priority over unique content (six reskins have been made available since June, with the AMX CDC being the only new premium addition ithout a permanent skin, and the regular T-54 Mod.1 arriving 5 months after the Motherland version), in addition to the ridiculous pricing of the bundles, which have increased since they were announced yesterday. Of course with the PCs addition of the T26E5 ‘Patriot’ and ‘Liberté’, I’m wondering if the PC development team is begining to take notes.

So what do you guys think? I’d like to see opinions from console players and PC players.
