I just read an interesting Reddit post, here is the link:

This is a great idea and one I hope makes it to WoWS or at least WoT NA. Essentially you are buying tokens that once activated, give you 24 hours of premium time. It is more expensive than normal 30 days of premium but cheaper than buying a day or weekend at a time for 30 days total. In effect you are buying 24 hours premium time in bulk that you have total control over. Players have been asking for something like this for the entire time I have played, lets urge WG NA to add this to the premium shop!

That would actually be quite amazing.  I usually only buy 30 days at a time because I may not play for several days and knowing that I won't be losing that time would be nice.

Also XP insurance has been added as an alternate product, letting you get the rewards of a win in a loss for certain numbers of battles.

I had not seen that, sounds like a great product to bring to WoWS!

Sorry, it actually is  on NA first, but possibly EU has it as well. Seems like a bit of an expensive option, however it doesn't interfere with the game, nor encourage p2w practices.

i have seen that,it's on wot NA,you are literally paying to lose.if it was a free thing,it would be great,some incentive with daily limits perhaps.

Agreed, 30 bucks for 100 losses is steep. It should be marketed as a little extra to premium time, be tied to it, then have a daily limit as you said.

Since it doesn't affect balance at least it doesn't hurt the game itself much, high price aside.

Paying to lose.....  I tend to do that when I have premium time!

Am a bit of a potato...

Have it activate in a "free" version if you lose x number of battles in a row. So if you say lose 4, go in, lose the 5th, 5th battle ends in a loss that battle is the one that you get the extra rewards for, and they can if they want keep the ones that are pay but insure all losses till it's up.

I can see loss insurance resulting in disincentivizing winning play here. Permanent save-a-star behaviour. Not sure we want that.

I do like the idea of manual premium time, though.

Dunno, speaking as a sucky player, insurance would be nice.... Course my rates would be HUGE!

The manual premium time is really cool and I do hope it makes it to WoWS.

Especially when you're grinding FXP or something, and you're loaded up with rare signals/camo.

24 hours is too much - WOW should consider it in 8 hour blocks of access which you can turn on/off at will.

as long as it makes it to NA, you're good; activate in tanks, exit, enjoy in ships since prem time is shared between all 3 titles
