Can you repurchase sold Premium ships for credits?

I know that you can sell your Premiums and repurchase them with credits in World of Tanks, is that a feature in WoWS? I'd like to sell my Ishizuchi and Yubari in order to get credits to buy the Benson, but I want to know if I can repurchase them first. That being said, I never play them anyway, so no loss if you can't. I'm just curious.

Yes you can, but you need to have the amount of credits that you got for them. So why do it? You can also play them.

I do not think so.

Not through the client, no. You have to send in a ticket. You can only request this so many times a year, but you can request multiple ships per ticket.

Well, then there are no credits lost in the process, correct? Also, I'd rather learn to play high tier ships well than keep playing low tiers.

Trust me, is better you play low tier or else you just going to have miserable time for you and you team

No, but you have to grind the credits either way.

I probably won't even repurchase them, I just want the option.

There's no better way to get better at high tiers than playing them. Also, I know how to play DD's pretty well, keep enemy DD's from capping points, and cap them yourself, then spot, and maybe even deal some damage yourself.

Well, it's there. You'd have to submit a ticket and request a buy-back.

But, and this is just my personal opinion, I think it's remarkably stupid to sell ships that earn increased credits every time you play them for a one-time infusion of credits. That said, it's your choice and your call.

I agree with you, but I already have Atago and Sims for credit grinding, and I sincerely doubt I will ever play Yubari and Ishizuchi again.

I would never sell Atago and Sims, since I use them so frequently for credit grinding, but Yubari and Ishizuchi aren't that great at it, so I won't be playing them again anytime soon.

Look through your service record. If you ever played them they should be in there.

No - you should go thru the lower tiers unless you are super duper unicum now.  High tier play is rather unforgiving and you lose cash VERY quickly.  With less than 1K games - you are barely scratches the surface of game play much less the mechanics of game play.

What he said.

You can every 6 months request your sold ships back from WG. There is no limit how many ships you can ask per request.

Go to the tickets section to request it.

Requirement is that you must have enough Credits in game to cover the costs per ship requested.

That, but sometimes, WG gives us ships to play with for very short time. So don't get confused like me.  I thought I had a premium ship, but it was a 'rental'.

Never, ever sell premium ships.  ESPECIALLY low tier premium ships.  It is much better to keep them in your port, even if you never play them.

First, credits are earned just by playing the game (well, at higher tiers), they are free to get, as much as you want.  Selling ships never really solves that problem, you just have to deal with it again later.  It's just kicking the can down the road and if you plan on buying them back, you are always "in debt".  Nobody likes being in debt.

Most importantly and here is the main reason, this game will sometimes give you crates in which free premium ships will come out of.  That ship is a roll of the dice, the possible outcomes of that dice roll, are all the premium ships that you do not currently own.  There is a theory (and I think there is some truth to it), that the game is more likely to give you lower tier premium ships (that are worth less), if you don't already have them.

So if you have purchased a premium ship, sell that premium ship and then before you get it back, you get a crate that drops a ship, you can very well get that premium ship that you paid for and then sold, back again.  This is a bad thing.  If you hadn't sold that premium ship, the one that dropped out of the crate might have been an $80 T9 premium BB instead.

In addition, the whole open a ticket and get your sold ships back thing, is at WG's discretion.  They don't gurantee that they will do it and there is a limited number of times that they will do it per player.  It's designed as an "opps I made a mistake, can you please fix it" get of jail card.  Not a banking system.  WG can very easily tell you "no".

Do not sell premium ships.  Also, do not sell ships above T5, premium or not.

I wonder though, what bout premium ships sold as part of a doubloon refund? Will support refund those too?

If you are talking about the CVs.  I don't think so no.  If I recall there was text in it that said that the action was irreversible.  This was due to changing costs of CVs before and after the rework.  Some premium CVs got a free tier bump, which would have made them worth more after, than what we paid for them before the refund.

why don't sell ships over tier 5? i sold colorado about 7 seconds after i grinded NC. no force on earth can make me do another battle in that ship. also sold guepard cause i needed a port slot for croc, which is still taking up a port slot and can't be sold. also i'm  going to sell Friedrich der grose the minute i grind GK, it's worse than colorado.
