Just look on steam and noticed that war thunder has been released...  WG I believe it's time for WOT/WOWP to be released too on steam or you risk losing players.

why?

personally i hate steam and have never bought or being attracted to a game because of Steam.

Remember that just because a game is on Steam does not mean it will be a success.

I am glad WoT isnt on there

To get more kids to play this? Oh hell no!

They need the players really badly.

It would be fairly nice, but i don't think WoT is risking to lose any players.

I can't see mums and dads just folking out any sort money on things they don't understand.  Im a dad and I sure would never be buying my kid any premium tanks or gold.  They need to earn it, like I need too.

Mhm, putting WoT on Steam would be disasterous.

I would be happy to have WoT via Steam.
Automatic background updates for example.
And I like to have all my games in one single launcher.

WoT is the only game I am currently playing that is not on steam.

I'm pretty sure you can add any game to steam launcher.

A pro of it being on steam is that you could buy your gold from steam.  I sell a lot of trading cards on the market and the money soon adds up in my steam wallet.  I would love to use this money I have laying about to purchase gold or tanks for WOT.

Steam is just inconvenient for F2P games. If they have money as much a WG they are better off making their own portal...as Wg did.

you could i guess launch it on steam and pay someone else money to do nothing, while insisting that I run steam background programmes if i want to play a game.

*Automatic updates FTW*

woot? so that means the playerbase might rise so its possible to play tier10-14 planes again? After patch 1.27 economy nerf people just stopped playing those tiers alltogether. I had to wait 10-15 minutes on prime time for a battle with my tier13 BF109 G-6 . And most often i met a bunch of jets instead, so i climbed to top altitude of 10500 and just circled there pciking off the tier20 jets climbing to whore the "easy kill".
But if its released on steam, that means the playerbase will grow A Lot.
thanks for noticing us!
War Thunder is an excellent game, WoWP looks like some third rate F2P browser game from china compared to War Thunder.
