Revenant Style! Another desperate money grab by World of Tanks.
Well folks, it’s the holiday season! And nothing says it’s the holiday season like yet another ridiculous money grabbing attempt by Wargaming with it’s new Revenant Style.
So what is Revenant Style and how do I get it, you ask? Well, it’s a lame, non-functional 3d addition to a tank that you pay out the ass for. That’s about it.
Here it is:
So what it boils down to is some little attachments of 3d art on your tank. That’s it. That’s all it is. For example’s sake, we’re going to take a look at the cheapest skin, the Panther II at $16.99.
To start things off, lets take a look at a plain Jane Panther II:
Not a bad looking tank, I must say! So what is it and how much does it cost? Well folks, you can get this tank free-to-play. It’s a Tier 8 Medium Tank on the German line. It costs 2,390,000 credits. Here it is in the Tankopedia:
Now, just for shits and giggles and lack of anything better to do on a Friday, let’s see what this tanks monetary value is, shall we?
The Gold to Credits exchange rate in World of Tanks is 1 to 400 respectively. That means that for every one gold you spend, you’ll get 400 credits. So that means the tank actually costs 5,975 Gold. The closest amount of gold you can buy to that is 6,500 that goes for $29.79. At that price, that means that each gold coin is worth .0045 cents. So that means the Panther II is actually worth $26.89.
For that, you get the whole tank. Now they’re wanting you to pay damn near the entire value of the tank to get this:
You get lights! (That don’t fucking work.) And for some strange reason you lose the side skirts. But you get some barbed wire too! (That doesn’t fucking work.)
All of that for ONLY $16.99!!!
Pardon me for just a minute…
Now, as if that weren’t enough, they’re also offering a gold pack to get you through the night. Here it is:
WOW! WHAT A DEAL! ONLY $450.00!!!
Forgive us all for just a moment.
Folks, if you want a Panther II with lights on it and a decent camo, here’s a bit of advice:
