And type 59 camo as well

What the...?  Why?  Why did they have to turn something that was highly requested into a blatant money grab?  Sigh.

 

 

Because it will work, that's why.  :Smile_sad:

I know it's a good discount, but I really just wanted the year of premium time for $50.  Now I gotta shell out even more money because they tacked on a flag bundle.

hold your horses.

let me go check what WoT and WoWp has to offer first.


Okay, WoWs definitely has the best deal for premium time.

Although, depending on what those WoT boxes give, that might end up being a better deal for premium.

I hear ya.  I would've preferred the standalone premium time, but the flags are still a pretty good bonus.  

 

Still wish I could buy me some Gamescom camos.....

I think it's a good deal.  Those aren't just flags they're pennants!  And those aren't cheap.  I'm in a clan but we don't have enough active players to put together a team so I haven't got any pennants in clan wars.  

If a pennant is worth twice as much as a flag and 'Rushing Down the Line' offer costs $12.99, that makes the 100x 3 Pennants worth ~ $26.00. 

$82 - $26 = $56 for 360 day premium.  

OK a bit of inflation from last year, but I think it's a really sweet deal.  I'm in!

Happy Christmas!!!

Last year it was $45 for a year of prem.

Expensive, and no Dragon flags?

Pass.

Same. Had it been 300 dragon flags I would be all over it.

I know it is asking for much, but I would have liked a $100 for 360 premium + 25 boxes deal.

I'm kind of disappointed it wasn't 100x of all those flags for that price, I would have nearly immediately bought it, but those are three of the most useless ones.

 

Hmm. I guess I'll hold out hope for a better offer on that.

WG, why you do this to me?

I got 90 days of premium time from a Santa crate last year.  Since that expired I have been looking forward to the year of premium time sale.  $50...that's what it has been the last 2 years.  Not this year.  You couldn't even bundle it with the super flags I like the most...Ouroboros and Dragon (Wyvern isn't bad for T8+ premium ships). 

This was going to be a slam dunk purchase.  Now I am on the fence, and a little bitter about it.  Whose head needs to roll for this? :fish_viking:  (Had to find a use for that emoji).

Wow... just wow.. this is the fastest I have gone from "YAY" to "Get stuffed". I have enough camo's and flags now to last me to the day the servers are switched off. Rightly or wrongly this move just rubbed me the wrong way. I spend enough on this game as it is and this just feels like a cheap move. I'll just make do with the premium time I have left. Which is still decent anyway.

Price seems high, wonder what they are tacking on to the price for the flags. Anyone remember (or screen grab) the 50% off one year premium deal with no flags from last year?

So $11 more than last year? I thought it was $50 last year.

That's 92 cents a month, 3 pennies more a day. 

If that's enough to piss people off than this deal is not the problem people.

Math?  Because this year it is $81.99.

Where did you come up with $11 more than last year?

Yeah, but I just wanted the premium time.  I had gotten myself comfortable with the idea of spending $50 for it.  Now I have to spend $82.  I don't care about the extra stuff they tacked on...it's the premium time I was after, and to get it I would now have to spend an additional $32 over what I intended to spend.  I would be okay with only having to spend an extra $0.03/day...but that isn't an actual option.

(stomps feet in a temper tantrum :Smile-angry:)

I dunno...I may have to pass on this.  Dammit!

Tbh the flags have no value to me. So it's 81$ for 1 year premium. I pass on this.

I am sure the deal is a great one for the right people. With over 700 million credits I don't need flags to give me more credits (but Hydra and Red Dragon are tempting). WG isn't doing bad with their offers but if premium time is all you are after then this sale is 10% off and less of a deal than Black Friday's 15% of a year's time.
