One of the suggestions that we received is to prevent new players from purchasing high-tier premium tanks on the get go so they don't jump into high-tier games without knowing how to play. :child: We'd like to ask the community what requirements you think should be implemented before a new player can purchase a high-tier premium tank. :great:

Well, it should be win-win situation as WG is company that pursue profits.

 

My suggestion is, let the new players to buy any premium tanks as long it is tier 6 and lower. This is because game become more competitive at tier 7 and above. Therefore, lots of serious player are playing in this tier.

 

Another thing is, they must at least have 500 and above to qualify them to buy high tier premium tanks.

 

Above all that, this is a free-to-play game. No one force us to play...but, WG need to keep the game momentum and quality at the highest level since most of the profits will come from the players that are serious with this game. o7!


Trust me, I am a pure noob. But I can carry any game with my T95.

None.  It doesn't really matter in any case.  Noobs can easily grind up to tier 10 without learning anything.  Might as well let them pay for the development of the game.

I agree with this. For all the annoyance of having players with 20 different premiums and 1 regular tank failing their way along they are rare, and if they are going to pay a few hundred dollars as soon as they download the game who are we to say no.

After making.a new account with less than 1500 battles,limit them to only buy tier 6 premium tank

After 3000 battles,let them buy tier 7 tanks

After 6000 battles,let them buy any premium tanks

From 1500 battles to 6000 battles,they MUST know the basics and 6000 battles is enough to teach them everything

Only let them buy a premium tank that is one tier higher than the highest tier tank they are currently grinding.

For example, a player is grinding a hellcat, he should only be able to buy tier 7 premiums because that is his highest tier tank.

If a player has a T25/2, he should now be able to buy the tier 8 premiums.

Let the player buy premium tank that is the same tier as the highest tier of regular tank that they own.

Yes please its really annoying to see "relatively new players who don't understand gameplay very well(aka noobs)" just jump into a high tier premium and drag the whole game down

Yeah this is the best option. All in all, premium players does help WG economy.

I suggest keeping it the same, for the only fact that's the way WG gobble up wallet newbies out here.

When you want to succeed as much as you want to live to breathe, then only you will succeed.

I think WG should re-name premium tank, as this gives players an impression that these tanks are better, but the fact is they are usually harder to use than normal tanks, with a few exceptions, like the IS-6

 

back to the topic, I think players should only be allowed to purchase premium tanks according to the highest tier tank they own.

 

one more point to note........ WG should promote skill based play style... the game itself did not come with any info on how to use the tanks effectively...... saw too players yoloed and blamed their team for not helping them~~~~~

I vote for no restrictions below tier 6. low tier matches have so so many inexperienced players it doesn't really matter if they're in a premium tank or not. 

 

For tier 7 and 8, i vote that players should have played a minimum of 100-200 games at that respective tier before they can purchase a high tier premium tank.

I dont think we need restriction. Yes, they probably cost us the winning. But, I've met many experienced players that are selfish and rude, also gonna effecting our team win. For me, I prefer nice players who play for fun and enjoyment of this great game rather than this rude and mean 'experienced' player.
