Update: Black Edition Tanks

Dear fellow tankers,

Last week we introduced the first of the “Back in Black” vehicles, which sees the return of some of our most acclaimed Premium tanks with a new and exciting look. More than that, it allows you to get an additional tank with the same battle characteristics, but with a new set of personal statistics; an additional ability to train your crew members; and collect daily x2, x3, or x5 bonuses.

When introducing these vehicles, we did not consider them to be fully new content – this is why we only introduced the first tank of the series, the T34 B, in Ultimate and Supreme bundles. This is contrary to our approach to new content, and we do apologise for making this mistake. For the additional tanks that will appear in the “Back in Black” vehicle series, we will offer “tank only” packages at the same price as the original tank. Furthermore, we will introduce the T34 B for an additional week in a “tank only” version starting tomorrow!

We have been listening to your feedback, and we heard you loud and clear. We can see that we implemented these vehicles poorly, and we do apologise for our error in judgement. Your comments, concerns and suggestions have made us reconsider the pricing structure for the “Back in Black” vehicles for owners of the original tank.

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.

Kind regards,

Markus Schill
General Manager Europe

    1. You, I like you.
      What you said is basically what I wanted to say in my comment.

      Buuuut I\’m also sort of a jerk so I will comment anyway, using parts of your comment, so… yeah.

      Cheers! 😀

  1. what did they expect after spending most of last year complaining about bundles. That and the fact that it was the T34. No one would buy that tank for that price. That again might explain why I\’ve yet to see even one in a random battle.

    1. i saw 2 in all this time and i know how it looks when sales go well (Mutz, KR, Skorpion G-unit)

  2. More than that, it allows you to get an additional tank with the same battle characteristics…but…worse camo.

  3. Well well well, look what the whine dragged in.
    It\’s actually good to see that they FINALLY do something instead of sitting in a box and fapping to cocaine.

    Yes, that makes perfect sense. No, I am not high or drunk.
    I\’m perfectly fine, the voices all agree!
    Except Kevin, but he is a jerk anyway. Yeah Kevin, fuck you!

    So, point is, if they do this, they realize their mistake, then maybe… MAYBE we will get… good offers in the future?…

  4. Simple reason why is this happening is that they didn\’t sell enough of those.. I\’ve only seen 2 black tanks in 200+ battles since their introduction.

    1. I haven\’t seen a single one since then.
      Maybe you are right.

      This was the catch.
