World of Tanks – Black Friday Tanks

Hello everyone,

First of all thanks to Dom1n for sending me this over email. Now, back to the Black Friday, seems its not going to be an exclusive just for consoles and we are getting at least three tanks in black also: T34, IS6- and Mutz. These tanks were introduced with today’s Micro Patch, meaning they will be available soon. No other details have been leaked yet, so I don’t know if these tanks will have some kind of special XP/credit earning rate like the Console ones.

On the other hand, Console Black Friday Tanks weren’t received very well because of their price. Wargaming now decided to cut the prices down, offering bigger discounts to the players:

  • Back in Black Mega Bundle: 35% Off
  • Back in Black Ultimate Bundle: 30% Off
  • Back in Black Duo (I, II, III) Bundles: 20% Off
  • Individual Black Edition Tank Bundles: 15% Off

But Wargaming is not very good at doing things correctly sometimes, and even with these discounts the prices are not very appealing. Further more, some tanks are more expensive with the discounts, than they were before, example being the STA-2 cost was 7,400 Gold and got the price increased to 8,700 Gold, now with the discount it costs 7,800 Gold. Wargaming did admit the original prices were a mistake, but if this is true, why instead of keeping them and actually benefiting the players, did they change them? It’s not like they need to produce the tanks, so there isn’t any costs in manufacturing, meaning Wargaming would never make a loss on this.

Let’s just hope that in the PC we don’t have absurd prices for tanks painted in black… But my hopes are very low.

  1. “It’s not like they need to produce the tanks, so there isn’t any costs in manufacturing, meaning Wargaming would never make a loss on this.”

    There’s always the cost of servers and developer payments. They need to offset the price of development somehow, because people for sure aren’t paying for new patches.

    1. Yes, but these costs are already covered. Would you like to sell 1000 of these ones for 7800 or 10,000 of them for 6000? People will buy if the prices are right…

  2. Wonder if this IS-6 will still have limited MM. If so, two IS-6’s are better then one. As long as it doesn’t cost as much as a car

  3. Cool idea…but I already have the Mutz and the other two don’t interest me. Hopefully, there will be a few more options.

  4. The black T34, and only the black T34, is available now on NA. You have to purchase it in a bundle so the cheapest you can get it for is $70.

  5. The only upside to this in my opinion is if they make the mutz avaiable. Since the is6 and the T34 are avaiable normally but the mutz is not avaiable all the time and it’s a good Tank. I think what WG is going to do is release the T34 first (like it did), then the IS6 and only after the Mutz
