  Hi. I'm not very active in any forums, so forgive me if I don't know some unwritten etiquette.


  As me and my friends (and maybe you as well) have started seeing, Wargaming has started to push more and more premium tanks to buy, popups encouraging to buy discounted items after a good battle and so on, however, people keep complaining about the game. It seems as if Wargaming doesn't care about what the game's playing experience is like, they just want money out of their players, and it sometimes feels like people are just doing whatever in the game. The player base is shrinking and the developers certainly have noticed, but I don't think the game itself is bad. I think the business model of this game could be greatly improved to return stability to this game, as well as restore an even playing field for all players without having to worry about gold spammers (unfair penetration advantage), overpowered tanks (IS-3A, Defender?) and cheaters.


  My question is: would changing the business model help the game out in terms of bringing back the players? If not, what is the root problem of the shrinking player base?

  If I'm being unclear, please comment. Thank you.
