People playing WOT are the Golden Goose, it lays golden eggs for WG. However it gets exploited badly, by demands of more and more eggs. While it grants nice income it also gets sicker and it's health  goes down. Start to care for well being of the goose, to prolong it's life and your long term egg income.

 

​And if there are to few eggs. And it's same old egg all the time year after year. You get the same effect. It's not easy to balance to much vs too little.

Do you really believe that ? Single tank is price of entire top shelf designed computer game. Do you realise what resources and effort it takes to make new computer game and add new tank to wot ?

Yeah, but how is that relevant? Even if a tank was 500€, it's still people's free decision to get one in this free to play game.

Besides that, a good meal at a restaurant costs just as much as a tank or a new game, sooo... what was the point of that comparison? 

Is the price of tanks really your only concern?

I've heard they're very socialist that way. Gold for everyone!

 

Gold for shooting the birds too.   I swear I'll bring down a goose some day.

My point is implementing tank into WOT costs almost nothing in comparison to creating whole game, and yet you have to pay as much. If thats not extorting then what is. The new tanks are handled to you in a manner as if you have just made the best deal in the world and buying a tank would be the greatest decision, implying they are completely worth the price asked and you should have it.

Price of tanks is not really my concern, it is just example of policy of greed that I am refering to.

Yes, the prices are way too high, that's still a major reason why I don't spend any money on the game, but in this case you can hardly blame the devs when people are still dumb enough to buy every crap thrown at their feet.

You also would't contact an ebay customer and waive some of the money if you feel that your auction went too high.

Premium tanks are just the shiny rail of this Titanic, the biggest golden egg WG gets is everyone spams gold ammo, all the time. Each game, each player who wants to win at all costs, dumps 80k credits before the game starts on good gasoline or large packs, auto extinguishers, chocolate... Plus 5k per shot.

 

A free player barely makes 10k on tier 6 without premium tanks, WG knows this and it's intentional. The problem is free players simply can't play as they want even after they invest a very long time, because after 100 tier 6 wins they can play ONE game in tier 10 with gold and go bankrupt again. Nobody wants that, thus why everyone's leaving the game, not just because they sold some OP premiums.
