Do you remember back in December that Wargaming talked about a possible new feature coming to World of Tanks, where it would allow players to Trade-In their Premium Tanks?
Last night update on the Russian Server brought more than just a few technical changes to Strongholds. It introduced the Trade-In system, where players are allowed to exchange their Premium Tanks for another one.
Update: The Trade-In feature is a test and will be running from 12/01/2017 to 23/01/2017.
The trade is limited to certain Premium Tanks from Tier VI to VIII, with a very important detail: you can only trade for a Premium Tank of equal or lower Tier.
This means if you want to buy an IS-6 (Tier VIII), you can trade in a Lowe (Tier VIII), or a AT 15A (Tier VII) or a Dicker Max (Tier VI). But if you want to buy a Type 64 (Tier VI) you can use a Dicker Max (Tier VI) but you can’t use any tank of Tier VII or Tier VIII.
The tank selected for trade in will be worth half of it’s Gold price. For example the player wants to buy a T-54 First Prototype, it will cost him 8,750 Gold. But if he trades in a Panther 8.8 he will get a discount of 3,650 Gold and will have to pay the difference of 5,100 Gold.
So in resume it’s not a system where you can just simply exchange a Premium Tank and pay a small fee, it’s a system very similar to trade of normal tanks for credits where you only get half the price of the tank when you sell it. But in this case, players can’t sell their Premium tanks to get 50% of the Gold back.
The following tanks can be bought using the Trade-In system:
- Dicker Max
- Type 64
- Heavy Tank No. VI
- Škoda T 40
- Strv m/42-57 Alt A.2
- AT 15A
- T26E4 SuperPershing
- FCM 50 t
- Panther mit 8,8 cm L/71
- AMX Chasseur de chars
- ?-54 (1945)
- M4A1 Revalorisé
- FV4202 (P)
I’m currently trying to confirm if this Trade-In system will be coming to all servers or if it’s just be for the Russian Server. I’ll update the article with more details as soon as I have them.
