It looks as though on April 12th, World of Tanks will be going live. This assumption, is based on their news, that you can pre-order gold, with a special ending as of April 12th. The gold, will be selling for $3.60 per 1000 gold. If you purchase 12,500 gold, they will give you a light tank. If you purchase 18,700 gold, they will give you a medium tank. If you purchase 25,000 gold, you can get a heavy tank for free. My personal choice would be the heavy or the medium, simply because being first to get a gold tank, will mean I would be able to hit tier 4 in 8-12 hours, and tier 5 in 12-24 hours of active play.
