In the past year, there have been over 30 times that Wargaming NA offered a premium tank for sale in the premium shop only and not had the tank available in game for gold. Some players viewed this as an obvious money grab by Wargaming NA because the premium shop price is always higher than the price if you bought gold and bought the tank in game for its gold value. Also some players say it devalues the gold won in tournaments and clan wars because you can't use the gold on anything new. I recently filed a ticket asking if I can buy the M41 90 GF for the gold price instead of through the premium shop. "Ticket #820558 Category:WoTSub-category:In-Game Goods Over the past year, Wargaming North America has released about 30 tanks in the premium shop only and not available n game for gold. Last month I saw that the M 41 90 GF was going to be available in August. Today I saw its available for sale only in the premium shop and not available in game. Is it possible to purchase the M 41 90 GF with gold? I was told that the value of the tank is 6500 gold. Since the M41 90 GF isn't available to purchase in game, would it be possible to deduct 6500 gold from my account and put the M41 90 GF in my garage?" Their reply after a long discussion: "All of this brings me back to your original question, which is "can I purchase the M 41 90 GF for Gold?" - unfortunately the answer is no. These bundles are available on the Premium Shop exclusively, and can't be purchased with in-game currency via the tech tree." To compensate me for my disappointment, they gave me 3 days of premium time. So is their policy a money grab? Does it devalue gold now that you can't buy anything new with the gold?
