Dear developers,let me just start by sayin what a great job you did with this game,WOT just an awesome game.
but the real issue is that the price you charge for the packages are simply overrated
i live in Israel,in order for me to buy the heavy package i need to pay 75 euro,its about 375 israeli shekels.
in israel i can buy 3 original games in retail version for this amount of money.not 1 but 3!
is there any chance to lower the prices?
I really dont know what about all the people that live in USA/EUROPE,but in middle east-Israel 75 euro its alot of money..you should think about the currency exchange in different regions.
:D i think you charge to much money..

In my country (Poland) 100euros is 400 zlotych. I can buy 4(!) new games for it, but IMO it's low price for this fantastic game :Smile_great:

It does seem like a lot of money, but you are getting plenty for that price. Games like World of Warcraft with a pay-per-month payment method will cost you £9 a month, that's £108 per annum for one game. Now look at World at Tanks, imagine that 2500 gold is your typical monthly usage. That would make the heavy pack last for 10 months, equivalent to £90. Remember that with "gold" you don't have to spend it all at once and that £80 could last you 2 years (If the game survives that long)

I won't pay either it is a waste of money. I am saying that though I am 16 and I don't have my own incomes. I can afford it, but still I can save the money for like driving pass or something.
Devs really made the price too big, idk how you pro gamerz look at it.
I am enjoying the game, but since there won't be any premium, and the prices are too high, I won't play anymore. Just a waste of money and time... :/
Without premium I can't keep my tanks running, cause the low credits after battles. Even with premium its hard. Exp is ok, but the credits income is bad. Highering the credits by 50% without premium should be good.
How can you even think of spending so much money on games lol... :S

my dear frineds thank you for your comments,im happy to see that im not the only one who feels like this.
i really love this game,and i dont got any fanincial issues but i will feel like a compelte donkey spending all this amount of cash.
even if you get the 25000 package you can afford premium account for 3 months and 10 days.
25000/250 = 100  :huh:
developres should lower the price,i really want to buy heavy package and there is absolutely no reason playin the game without premium,but my dignity wont allow my hand to reach towards the wallet.. :lol:
PLEASE LOWER THE PRICES AND YOUR NUMBER OF PLAYERS WILL IMMEDIATELY GROW.

No offence but the gold/time ratios are
250 / day
1250 / week
2500 / month
That's 10 months for 25k gold not 3 months

If you buy 25000 gold, you can get 10 months of premium. I think it's good price.
I don't know how did you count your "3 months and 10 days".

You also get a tier 8 premium tank, probably worth 10000 gold as well. Because the Lowe will cost about the same.

Probably obvious Troll but still...

You do know that premium when buying for 30 days costs only 2500 ? So that gives you 10 months worth of premium.

I personally won't buy any of the packages, cause I don't believe I need that much gold at once. Of course beta made me aware that playing without premium is long and painfull process so I'm planning on getting around 3000 gold the moment game goes live. Will buy 30 days of premium and see if the game is still fun for me. If not, we'll just part our ways, show must go on, etc. Hopefully price of 3k gold will stand somewhere around 10 euros which per month seems low enough. Even in poland.

Conversion rates can be pain sometimes. If it's that much of a difference, they should probably try to localize payment even more if possible.

That being said, the game is still fun even without premium. Unless ofc your favourite tank is a T9+ and you refuse to look back  :Smile-hiding: Even if I had no money in this world I would still play this game. It would just mean I could spend even more time in my schweet litle Panzer III  :Smile-izmena:

If it's expansive, don't buy it. Play without premium or buy 2500 gold.

The light package is about the equivalent of buying a new game, so I am tempted to get that. Ignoring the tank though, will be worth more for the extra slot...

3 game just for 3-4 months? No....
And you just get 10 month premium, not 10 month playing. If you get bored of WoT, u can **** your 10 month premium :D

25 000 gold for 75 euro means 10 months of premium wich is 7.5 euro per month

this is relativly low compared to other Free MMORPG's. Who charge alot for many items wich also makes it very unfair towards players who dont pay to play

It is however unfair towards our East bloc comerades who dont earn as much  :(
hope you guys get better times or better deals one day

Where does the 10,000 gold for tier 8 tank come from?  The premium tanks we have currently are 2000 gold or less.  They may not be tier 8 but 5 or 6 times the "price" for tier 8, are you sure?

Yes. Thing is, unlike the current premium tanks(next to hotchkiss) the Lowe and KV-5 are good to fight both its own tiers as its tiers above

The Lowe for example, has the same top gun as the KT. The best gun of all Tier 8 tanks.
The KV-5 is a tier 7 tank. Its 107mm is sufficient for its own tiers. The KV-5 has the advantage of having good armor wich can protect itself from T6 tanks.
