I'd really like the BT-SV for -MM's Windstorm GPs. It's such a shame your recent changes in the SHs and "game balance" have killed off the whole clan and now the races no longer exist. I'd have also liked the gold if any of the good premiums were on tech tree. Pity they aren't. Actually in your short-term greed you've not only obsoleted 80-90% of your premiums and made them a waste of money but you've also convinced me that whatever I invest my money/gold on in this game, you will either power creep it to death in a few months(premium tanks), or simply ruin the balance of the whole tier(the retardheavies at tier 10, the new premiums at tier 8) to the extent that I won't have any desire to play them. So it's lose-lose. RIP 100€?

 

Now, one last lesson. In the long run people are more inclined to spend on your game if they find it fun. Many bigger games only sell cosmetics. They don't have a pay-to-win economy that puts anyone who can't afford or just won't spam tons of gold against Defenders and Mauses into a big disadvantage. They also don't have a system where you can only obtain the best tanks in the most popular tiers by splashing lots of real money. Yet they make tons of money simply because people are more inclined to invest on whatever they find fun.

 

But hey IS-3 is the best tank of tier 8 and anyone can grind it right? Wasn't that the argument used a few months ago? Pity it's dead-wrong and IS-3 is merely a decent tank nowadays. If you guys tried to play your own game for a change instead of power creeping it at the speed of the light, you might have realized that.

That's exactly right.

 

Given that most people want the new, OP Premium tanks .... and they AREN'T available for gold, what are we supposed to spend 30k gold on ?  Three Tier 8s ?  Which ones ?  The IS-6, T-34 and FCM 50t ?

 

Wouldn't it be better to wait and spend the 100 Euros on a Skorpian G, Defender and Patriot ?

 

So I'll make the bottom line question really obvious ... What do you expect us to spend 30K gold on ?

 

(they expect us to lavishly frit it away on emblems, player name changes and other [edited]over priced nonsense).

I mean, hey, I know why they do it. A lot of folks who did not bother with the french TD line because it was/is crapare now interested because of the foch 155 thing. So yea, it makes sense from a marketing point of view.

 

But ffs, the copy in these announcements is so damn funny and it is so clear that the man writing is trying his best. :)

At least now we know that WG is aware of this problem.

 

People have nothing to buy for gold in the game anymore... Stupid marketing team is stupid.

I was tempted by the special tank. Thankfully, WG was nice enough to put a stupidly high price on the bundle, making it an instant non deal. Good Job, WG.

But what about that guy who gets slots to keep all tanks and puts permanent camo on them. And then he fill them with gold crews that gets a gold reset for every new set of skills/perks because that is what he have been told to do on the youtubes. He might even spend some on prem time and consumables. Naturally all his premiums gather him free xp that he converts whenever he's not feeling a tank. I bet 30k gold is nothing for that guy.

Oh god.......not again with the 100 Euros crap outdated rare tank thing.......

Pfft.

Look this tank is from back in the day, it's not updated for today's game and basically, it's just an expensive door wedge for your tank garage.

Don't buy it, unless you're desperate for the gold and you can afford it, but for god's sake don't buy it for the tank, you'll be disappointed.

no compreis nada os duplican el cobro y si no dices nada y esperas haber que pasa (olvidate) y si reclamas el duplicado te bloquean tu cuenta, es lo que ay

Do not buy anything you double the charge and if you do not say anything and you expect to have to pass (forget it) and if you claim the duplicate you block your account, that's what
