#WalletClosed - Official creator : Cobra6

 

 

I am looking at a calendar and it got me thinking, that it has been almost 9 months now since I've spent money on this game. This is quite unusual since I never had a problem with paying for something I either enjoy or find useful (Avast, Malwarebytes, some DLC's for games I like, etc).

 

The thing is, I often see people here on this forum with a hashtag walletclosed. Before I was buying gold every two months for premium account and stuff, but then I got disgusted by some of the WG's decisions, truly disgusted and said to myself that I cannot justify paying for something like that anymore. 

 

It would not do much help talking about this stuff again, we all discussed them before. What I would like to know is for how long have you been F2P, and do you think the annual numbers will show a decrease in income generated by WoT ?

 

To end this, I just want to say that I have no problem with spending money, but there has to be some improvements to be seen and stuff like releasing pre-nerfed 268 4 onto the live version, should not ever happen again. And if it does, we should not be waiting months to get a lightly touched nerf.

 

Signing out and,

 

Stay away from the Aqua !

I've never paid for any premium time or tank. The only thing I've bought is some gold long ago, to be able to re-use equipment. they won't get more money of me, as it's not worth it for me. you don't get what you deserve for contribution to this game. buying stuff is approving WG's attitude, so that will encourage them to keep doing stupid things.

I know where and how, I am well aware of that. It is a seriously good product and this is my way of rewarding the work I am really happy with. After all it's only a 19 quid for a Year, I can live with that.

Bought the AMX M4 49 a couple of days ago with 30% and another 10% off.  Still have 35 days premium from various packages I bought earlier in the year so it will be walletclosed for about a month.  Then probably back to getting the offer of the month every month until the Xmas wallet squeezers arrive.

They gave me that 10% off coupon, too. But they gave it to me some days after the only summer sale tank I might have bought had been on sale, the Löwe. I lost a chance to get it at a very attractive price (been trying to do that for like 1 year at least), WG lost a chance to get my money.

Bought the wz-111 in a marathon in 2012-13 (I think) through fail-safe option. Haven't spent a penny since. And looking at the wz-111 and how useless that tank is now, I can wholehartedly say with no regret or shame whatsoever, that being f2p for about 5+ years has been a wise decision. Would rather retire from WoT than spend any money on this game or any other Wargaming related product.

Not bought premium for over 3 years, not bought gold for over a year. Not because of the state of the game. But... because I honestly don't need it. And garage slots etc we get so often free now that I have not bought them in almost 2 years. Same with premiums. I don't need more for income. It's just if I lack crew training etc for a new nation. And more then half the tier 8's I have. I've gotten for free. So not complaining either way. 

 

But the thing is... even tho some has closed their wallet. There are more then enough with it open. Even alt accounts that need tier 8's to pad with "how much have they not made on those I wonder". WOT console sells more and more every month as it grows. And there are more on PC willing to fling out for nothing regardless. As indicated by all the crates they sold during Xmas. If they sold the Defender on EU today, they would make more then the #walletclosed guys have spent in total in less then an hour. So I doubt WG will notice if you will. And that's the bad aspect about it. Their protest is for deaf ears more or less.

So, how do WG know how you feel if you don't spend money anyway?

Went f2p for approximately the first 12 000 games.....

 

Had to buy some gold to convert exp in the hurry to get T30 as tier X, thereby getting the T34 for free and the E5.  Kinda noticed that it MIGHT be ok with some gold, perhaps even premium time once in a while...

 

Then finally conceded that I was a junkie, loving tanks and paying the game a lot...so started spending. But guess since last two years been getting this felling I don't like the way development is going...so been more stingy.

 

And with bobject v4 and types with HE gold spam, topped off with their post of intended "perfecting PMM tanks"....I've decided to stop spending until they show what they intend.

 

And according to updated post about PMM tanks, this should take about six months :facepalm:

that's not the point, as WG does not care for the opinion of their players. they've showed that attitude for a long time now and through a lot of very bad decisions. there are a lot of places WG can read opinions of players, still they either don't read it or just ignore it, like everyone is happy.

Does it ever cross your mind that most of us are happy?

There have been a few offers in the summer sale I've wanted and had the strength to refuse.  The greatest temptation was the Lorraine and ravioli going on sale at the same time.  I always thought that the two together would make great crews and credits quickly.  If I start playing this game again I'll just become angry and fixated again.

More to the point, apart from buying the Somua when it first came out, I have only bought an Excelsior for 50% off (2.50?).  I am having a lot of fun blitzkrieging my enemies in Hearts of Iron 4 instead.  I am currently in the middle of a playthrough as a Democratic Germany.  The Allies are a bit confused, but with only an eastern front, I am showing those greedy buggers how it's done.
