This is sad. Your portal lately became just one big fat newsletter for e-shop. Al those tanks, now this. No content about game itself, some updates, nothing, just one big sign ' give us your money'. Before you had some interesting articles to read at least once or twice per week. Just sad.

If someone is still using 90's tech, why on earth do you think they would either, a) have the money, or b), the desire to purchase any of these overpriced branded bits of tat........

If your target audience is daddies with disposable income, why does all this look like something that's designed to appease kids ?

 

I don't even want to think about the conflict that'd arise if I brought one of those things in my home.

 

Get some us some leather executive chairs to convince us that we're still in charge of something, and branded beer barrels to keep the money flowing (I can't remember the last time I made a sober purchase).

I'm terribly sorry for everybody who I'm inflicting this tirade on, but I can't just let this go.

 

The very thing that gave you incredible conversion rate on f2p vs. paying customers that you managed (also by design) to target the audience who have jobs, family, probably not much time for competing hobbies, and purchase power. Your audience has no issue to buy stuff, they don't have to beg the money from their parents for a purchase they don't understand.

 

As an anecdote - around 6 years ago I saw an conversation in vauva.fi. For non-Finns, this is an online forum for mommies. Discussions range from analyzing the color of your babies poop to *edit  about husbands, and "do my *edit look saggy" pictorials after a year of breastfeeding - it's certainly quite a place, that every now and then gathers some attention for moms being moms. It's exactly how'd you imagine it to be if you're married. It's not at all what you'd imagine it to be if you've never been married.

 

Anyway, one concerned mother posted their credit card bill, with complaint about his husband's online purchases, and turned out he was wasting money (that could be used for, I dunno, new curtains or some useless *edit  like that) on some russian tank game. A lot of scorn ensued on the evil man neglecting his wifes wishes along with all kinds of "if that happened to me, I'd leave him on the spot" - comments .. well, up until the point where the thread got linked quite fast to the dad brigade, who promptly hijacked the thread complaing how else would they ever get to the IS-4 they need to show the Poles who the rightful kings of ever-raging online tank battles are, importance of owning a premium tank etc. You know, all the important stuff that absolutely needed to be said.

 

I digressed, but that kind of underlines the reason why (iirc) you had rate of 25% of paying players instead of what, something like 1% on your average mobile game. It's really *not* a problem to pay. I blow more money on the beer I consume when I play the game than the game itself. My days are full of all kinds of worries and responsibilities and I definitely can buy something nice for myself.

 

But I want something that's actually nice and appeals to an adult. I don't want to get gear that looks like it's designed for kids because jebus forbid, I get enough *edit for playing games already. At this age I've learned that it's better to make a good purchase than plastic *edit  - I'd rather make a 300 euro purchase that lasts me 10 years than buy some 30 euro crap every year. We also play this game because for some weird reason, tanks are aesthetically pleasing to us. I don't want a keyboard that signals I'm a upcoming streamer with orange hair from a future where everybody went blind - I want a keyboard that's like a tank. Ugly, rusty and lasts a lifetime. I want something that looks like it was recovered from an abandoned T-54, I want rust, metal, maybe with wood or leather finish. And not wood painted on a top, I want it to be heavy, it needs to be something that I can drag through a mud and beat up a burglar afterwards, something I need to rescue from the compost once my wife gets rid of the eyesore, and I want it to work properly after all this.

 

I want a mousemat that looks like a coffee stained map from a world war 2, I want you to pre-soak it in diesel for the emphasis, and I want a proper wood and leather chair that looks like it was the one that the designers of the first WW 1 tanks sat in, it's ok if it has cigar burns or varnish worn out by spilled whiskey, but it's not ok if it has blinking lights, black and orange, or something as completely stupid as speakers or some sort of *edit -fan.

 

And I want it to last long enough that I can give them to my kid when he grows out of the blinking light keyboard phase, then I'll get myself a new set.

What nakki typed is one of the most beautiful things that I have ever read. 

 

edit: too bad it got deleted even though it didn't break any rules what so ever

Your feedback was simply too constructive. They don't want to know what kind of products their players/customers would be willing to spend money on. I hope you have learned from this lesson and just go along with the spaceship plastic ok.

I would not in a million years admit to any people I meet in RL that I'm playing this game. So the last thing I'd do is trying to "look cool" in this way.
