Lol germany has a massive low wage sector.

According to the berlin taggesspiegel roughly 2.35 million people are forced to work a 2nd job to make ends meet.

13 million are at risk of poverty or 16.1% of the total population and poverty is considered at 979 euro's a month for a single household and 2056 euro's for a family with 2 children under 14 and anyone who has to pay for his own bills knows that such a sum is absolutely too low.

 

Okay, then this offer isn't for these people. It still leaves about 50 million people who could afford this thing. And to be fair - most people that you mentioned won't even know about this offer, since they can't afford a gaming PC and so likely won't play WoT. PC gamers - especially the ones from 90s who are now around 30 - are more likely to be well off (and many of them are still single, because they end up in IT business which has demanding hours) and so many brands aim at them.
I mean, have you ever checked things like Steam discounts? People are able to pay hundreds of euros easily over there, in many cases including even high school and university students. Of course a mom of three that can't almost pay her bills won't buy things like this - but there are many people who can.

It's like looking at some itasha design and wondering who will buy it. Most people won't, but they probably aren't the target audience, so why bother saying: "A poor family will never buy this ugly car for 400k euros!". Especially if the "ugly" part is your personal opinion.

so where you from ???????????????????the designs are rubbish and the price is laughable

wargaming should have had "George at asdas " do the design and pricing, its the same as there tshirts over priced rubbish

 

Central Europe (not Germany, though), bit over average pay for this country. I like the design, you don't, simple as that..

The post i responded to claimed a german makes 2-3K a month easily.

Now my understanding of the english language translates that to every german while i know for a fact a very large portion of the population lives on near poverty wages.

So pretty much one jacket with a WoT logo is the price of what a family of 5-6 could spend on shopping in 1 week or even more??

The design is awesome. It's classy, at last something I could wear at work !  

 

If you guys use to wear hoodies or sutff like that, then these are just not made for you, end of story.  

 

And as mentioned before, 165 € is a normal price for a jacket. And I'm sorry if you can't afford that, but FOR ONCE that we have good quality and classy merchandising, I won't complain.  

And you can still buy 10 $ t-shirts on Jinx guys.

 

Also, props for the "Ranking system" stuff, it's awesome. :p

The designs are cool - however whether i would wear that and go to work in our office ... questionable - the price --- even more questionable.

I liked the sweater most, however i have a similar one, an original one from the army shop... for 30€ new....

Having been self employed on eBay and Amazon for aprox 1 year, I can tell you that if you think that jacket is normal for 165€ .. then you're one of the people who buys the items I get from china for £0.25 and sells for £9.99 every single day. It's not normal, It's stupid. Just because some of us could afford to buy one of those every single week without issues doesn't mean we just mindlessly dump 165€ into a 10€ jacket (IF it's even made of decent material) with maybe a couple of € import duty into the EU. :facepalm:

I think you translate that wrong, then. Unless you say "every German", it doesn't mean "every German". I suspect that no sane person would say "every German makes 2-3k EUR easily", because after all, even in Germany you have poverty or homeless people. Still, I understand that "easily" is quite overblown (considering that German average net income is 2k last year and median is 1770 EUR in 2008), so I agree with you a bit.

The jackets aren't bad looking, but kinda spoiled with the WoT logos on them.

But can you imagine walking down the street and someone shouting 'NOOB!' at you.......I can.:teethhappy:

 

No thanks.:hiding:

Who the hell buys a coat with the logo of a game on it?

 

And wow the prices... 165 euro for the coat and 40 for a [edited]hat? You really have to be mad to actually buy this...

 

Those prices are quite normal for the west-European market. I would be hard pressed to find a decent leather jacket for under 200 euros. The target market for the WoT-branded clothes probably isn't the countries, where the cost of one item is 50 % of the monthly income.

 

Of course it may be that the clothes are made in Indochina from low quality materials, in which case they would be overpriced. But if they are made from decent quality materials, they are not at all expensive.

The middle coat looks very good, but I have to work for a goddamn month here in bulgaristan, not eating or any other expenses just to purchase it.

But the ushankas and the man-purses price is just retarded. I can get both items without the logo for 10 euros, with the bonus that the ushanka will be from genuine fur, rather than the cheap fish-fur crap that westerners take back from their trip to Russia.

 

Also I can get a working tankist helm for 10ish euros from a military surplus stand.

 

Edit: forgot that I'm in englandstan.
