This kind of selling-begging for money actions on almost every day basis just went from sad to disgraceful.

So I clicked on that link which brings us to a "Stock up for ranked battles" page trying to flog some stuff, fine, but there is a quote with a link "Can't decide on the tank you want to go for? Find our recommended vehicles for this season here" yet when that link is selected it only opens the same bloody window again, seriously?

Please be aware any company that sells things will advertise the things they want to sell on a frequent basis to maximise the potential sales. This isn't begging, this is marketing and sales.

It's since been fixed. When I clicked on that link this morning(like a pro SPG player) all it did was open exactly the same page that link was on again instead of the page with the recommended tanks. All good now.

ok here we go, You asked for it, so here is my answer, please dont ban me for that: :)

1. bundle for 30 eur with 2,5 k G , 30 days and 20 personal reserves free xp and crew:

2,5k G =10 eur plus some 8 eur for 30 days=18 eur, its the reserves that are useless,...first implement crew exp gathering after each game,...I still dont know how much crew am I getting after the game, is this really that hard??

Then throw in boosters 20x +50% credits  instead free exp,...make it 25 eur altogerhet and ppl will buy,...I know I would.

2. bundle for 55 eur, 6k G + 6 mio credits: gold worth around 24 eur, so for 6 mio credits i pay 30 eur? I mean,.....are you joking or are you just d... ? Credits can be farmed and although I know some ppl buy it cos they dont have time,  I doubt this sounds attractive to anybody?!  ,...Plus with gold actually you cant buy really usefull stuff,....like Bonds, OP tanks or New tanks or BIA crews or hey again,..+50% credit boosters!

 

Hope this helps ....

Then also be aware that aggressive marketing to an increasingly frustrated customer base is likely to backfire.  I would go so far as to observe that because of the many issues people have with the state and direction of the game, and so their declining monetary spend, this is why the marketing has increased to try and counter it, rather than resolving those issues in a more timely manner as the priority to remedy the decline.  I do not have the figures obviously but I would not be suprised to see a much lower % of spend per customer number.

I'm sorry, but this is a bit funny. Instead of solving the premium ammo issue so players can play competetive without bankrupting themselves, WG puts up a Fort Knox offer :D

This kind sir here explained it on more polite way than I would.

Very nice that you value gold again zero. Great to know it in future with lootboxes. No premium account offers at all on ingame shop. :angry:

Well, I can't speak for others but I had my first experience of ranked battles this evening and I won't be playing it again. Reason is simple and it's just this, you can lose chevrons, total bs. What chevrons I got I earned by playing well, if I was carried and did nothing I would not have got any even if on the winning team so what I got I earned yet this is game mode where you can get horribly useless teams so your'e going to lose, fine, it happens BUT.... you also lose the chevrons you earned? disgusting, utterly disgusting. It's not my fault the team melts and it's not my fault the team loses, any doubts, watch any of my replays I can play and play well most the time. So that means that I should be able to save losing chevrons on a loser team? No, I play positively and there are those that play negatively to farm a top whatever finish is needed to save chevrons yet in truth their negative playstyle sowed the seeds of defeat to begin with yet they don't lose chevrons while I do along with a game that has RNG that gives us the middle finger in some battles, not my fault, did little wrong yet I lose the progress I earned. It's not ok and it's not appealing. Not sure why anyone if anyone likes this game mode. Toxic I would say.

Thanks for the detailed feedback but I would like to say a couple of things about it, I see why you don't like to lose chevrons and I would say you have a point because losing something you earned due to someone else's mistakes is not nice but you should know that; even in losing team you can win a chevron and there is a possibility of not losing a chevron in the losing team. This depends on your performance, not to others. So actually, if they play bad it is better for you at this case...
