Aye. I really miss mine....so many tanks I want to "get back" that I loved in Beta but it is so much work. Although I knew from the beginning everything from beta would be wiped away it still does feel a little demotivating having to get it all back again. Takes longer this time around too because I don't get 150 gold daily for free like in the beta to transfer exp off my scouts/arty/etc to help speed things up
Hehe, I have been a sucker lately and bought gold for converting all the piled up free XP. But to be honest I don't mind spending a bit on WoT, considering how much I play it.
As for losing the tanks, yeah it was a total bummer. First month or two when the retail game came out I didn't even touch it, I kinda felt "cheated" out of my awesome tanks. But now I have my IS4, I have my t43 (t44 in a day or two), my SU8, so life in WoT is good again
