For the Record: Update on the Gold Policy
Hello everyone, regarding the post today about the premium tank compensation – the “credits instead of gold”, according to the explanations of developers on Russian forums, this applies ONLY for bonus codes (as in, if you buy a premium tank in the shop and you already have it, you get gold, not credits). The reason for this is to limit the amount of bonus code scams – this issue seems to be mostly limited to RU server: either people hoarding bonus codes and selling them for cheap, or simply stealing them (they “guess” the code based on several samples, it actually works very well). WG has been steadily removing various scam sites (these are common to Vkontakte and Livejournal), connected to this issue as well. Anyway, that’s that.
