Calling all Tank Commanders!
The Trade-In feature is back for World of Tanks, but for a limited time only so grab the keys to your garage cuz we all know – your lineup could use some sprucing up.
Starting today, Premium Tank owners are able to trade their ride for another as long as it meets several criteria set by Wargaming.net. The announcement post on World of Tanks’ official site read:
(…) can trade-in any premium tank of Tier VI – VIII when buying a new premium tank available in the tech tree, which is of the same or higher tier as your old vehicle.
It is possible to trade-in only one vehicle at a time. When trading in, half of your old tank’s value in gold will be reduced from the price of the vehicle you’re attempting to buy.
They also included a scenario example in case you are still wondering how the trade-in works:
You want to buy the Löwe, which costs 12,500 in the game. In exchange you want to trade-in your old Dicker Max, which normally costs 3,200.
Just like selling standard vehicles gives you half of their value in credits, trading in your old premium tank will produce half of its value in gold, which then in turn will be deducted from the price of the tank you are wanting to buy.
In this example, trading in your Dicker Max will yield you half of its price, which is 1,600. Consequently, your new vehicle’s price will be reduced accordingly and you now need 10,900 for the Löwe.
In short, this trade-in window allows you to convert your Premium Tank into gold coins to purchase other vehicles. This feature is now live and will run til March 2nd 2018 and you can trade-in only vehicles that are of lower or equal Tier to the vehicle you are purchasing, but not lower than Tier VI.
However, we aren’t sure if this feature is available for the game on all platforms and whether World of Tanks Blitz will be getting it as well. We’ve contacted Wargaming.net for clarification and will update you once we receive their official word.
World of Tanks is a free-to-play, historically-realistic tank battle game by Wargaming.net. It’s available for download on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
