Poll: Business Model (64 members have cast votes)

You have to complete 250 battles in order to participate this poll.

So my question is if War gaming were a multinational technology giant who would they be?

  1. Apple. They drip feed you technological advances & sue the pants of everone who may pinch some market share. (18 votes [23.38%])

    Percentage of vote: 23.38%

  2. Microsoft. They have had it all their own way for so long they have forgotten how to give the customer the experience that made them so big in the first place! They have lost touch & roll out features that no one wants or needs. (31 votes [40.26%])

    Percentage of vote: 40.26%

  3. Leave the polls to Doug becos nobody does it better. (28 votes [36.36%])

    Percentage of vote: 36.36%

While I was on my way to work today I was reading an article about Apple & how they introduce new features to existing products thus keeping its customers waiting for the next feature & maximising sales.
Take the Ipad for example when the Ipad 1 came out it was hyped as the next big thing cornered the market & now everyone is scrambling to catch up, what Apple never told its customers was that they already new what they were going to add to the Ipad2 & 3 so they drip feed new features & their customers start to drool & queue up all night waiting for something they already have but with an added camera of something. This generates more interest & thus more sales but no major real changes.
Then it struck me that this sounds very familiar WG announces a new patch with new tanks, maps & now game modes so we all speculate when its going to be implemented all you see on the forums when is patch A coming out & even before patch A is released the forums are full of when is Patch B coming out. Then when it is released Russian get buffed, Germans get nerfed matchmaking & Spotting stays the same, we all rage about how unfair it all is all of which keeps us talking about the game so keeping it in our minds.

So my question is if War gaming were a multinational technology giant who would they be?

If you have any other suggestions I will add them to my poll.

Moved to off-topic section as it's not game play related.

That poll has nothing to do with gameplay discussion.

Wg are planning to buy Apple in 2016, and MS in 2020. As they are amateurs in trawling money from customers. :Smile_blinky:

I drew it looking through the window last night.

Sorry I left the ladder out, I'll make sure it goes back in the shed later tonight.
