What I really don't get with the new "Spare Parts" system is the reasoning behind making them so damn difficult to aquire.  In doing so Wargaming has successfully made them a far more valuable currency than gold.  Surely that is counter productive for a company trying to make a profit by encouraging players to purchase gold and/or premium time?  The whole system seems to be a disaster from start to finish.  I vote for a return to spare parts being purchased with credits.  At least doing that will encourage players to purchase premium time to earn the credits faster.  With the current system of getting moderately reasonable spare parts rewards only with mission completions and SOME medals, there really is no incentive to purchase premium time since doing so does not increase the frequency of mission updates.

Ranger Medal - 0 spare parts.

I mean, is WG that stingy? Just give 50 spare parts or something.

Ranger is highly dependent on MM so that's most likely why it was not included.

 

I've also updated the original post with the changes implemented on 27 June. :great:

I'm sorry to say, that the Spare Parts issue is a bit messed up, if you knew tanks before this had been introduced then you would understand why I'm saying this. If you're new, then you will probably wonder whether the part you bought is active or not until the timer has expired.... and even then, whether or not it has helped you.

 

Does anyone have any material evidence upon the benefits of Spare Parts per Tank, per Tier ?

The ingame player profile has removed the Number of Ace Mastery Badges.

 

However, under "Valuable Awards" they list the number of Ranger Medals I have. But Ranger Medals don't give any spare parts, so why does WG think it is a valuable award???  :)
