What are premium vehicles?
Premium vehicles are a special group of vehicles that can be purchased directly in the game for gold. They do not require any progress in the game and can even be purchased by new accounts. Their main advantage is the fact that compared to the regular vehicles of the same tier; they earn significantly more credits – 50 percent more to be exact.
While regular vehicles are currently planned for tiers 1 to 10, there will only be tier 1 to 6 premium vehicles during the Early Access and Open Beta stage. Tier 7 and 8 premium vehicles are planned for the distant future and will not appear in 2015.
Premium vehicles are balanced to be approximately as powerful as regular vehicles of the same tier with half of their modules unlocked. Premium vehicles can be equipped with retrofits but they generally do not have unlockable modules.
Battles in premium vehicles do count towards dealer requirements. For example: if unlocking a regular vehicle requires completion of a certain amount of battles on vehicles from that specific dealer, playing these battles in a premium vehicle purchased from that respective dealer will count towards this requirement.
