A topic I think is in the interest of everyone!

 

I'd pay for a premium subscription of X amount of days a year. I don't play every day and thus only buy one day of prem when I do.

But I'd be happy to pay for a limited amount of prem days/year and use them accordingly (prem days/hours would be consumables).

 

Yes, 1d prem is available, but why not bundle it up to 40 days for 30€ (or similar).  

I'd pay upfront and WG can get some bacon.

 

Please continue and add what you'd be happy to pay for :)

Because they get less money out of you.

 

Would you take 40 days at whatever 1 year currently costs?

22:29 Added after 5 minutes

Put it another way, how long would it take you to use those 40 days?  (3 months, 6 months, a year?)  Would you pay whatever it costs currently for that length of premium, if so then just pay it and forget about the days you miss.

 

I buy a month at a time, sometimes 3 months.  I don't play every day but I play often enough for that to be cheaper than buying individual days.

My point was that WG would get the money upfront, not one payment at a time. Also, getting 40€ once is easier (and cheaper, banks like transaction costs) than getting 1€x40 from a company's point of view. 

Sorry that I was unclear.

That would just encourage bad behaviour (introduce problem, offer paid solution).

I'd pay for people who have nothing to contribute to find other ways of making themself heard. Noise

I would pay to be able to add Defender skin onto my Obj. 252U. :trollface:

(Bought 252 after the "not selling defender ever again" promise from WG.)

I’d pay to be able to create my own sounds, camouflage patterns and skins.

 

Admit: That “clikt” of low tiers guns is depressingly underwhelming.

I really don't see the point of paying premium time if you play from time to time, this is absurd.

If you are sure to play all day long, whatever how it turns out (bad ?) then pay for the day of premium.

If not then the "fun factor" is not linked to the premium time.

Whilst it can be bad news getting players like me on your team in battles, it is still better than skill based MM. Games that have that do not last. They create problems of their own that cause players to give up. Players manipulate their stats to get themselves dropped down to lower levels so they can win all the time. You end up with 25% or more of your team doing nothing in battle so their stats drop and they can go down in the MM. I've seen it happen so many times. Players that play "honestly" end up reaching the maxinmum they are capable of. Trouble is, they will normally peak, go up a level and be out of their depth having reached their maximum. They find going farther too hard and give up playing, One of the reasons WOT has lasted so long, I think, is precisely beacause they don't have a skill based MM. It's such a difficult thing to do well. If you make it so people don't drop down once they have moved up, they get out of their depth and give up. If you allow skill based mnovement up and down, too many players are absent in battle as they try to get themselves dropped down to a level where the game is easier to play and win. You can try introducing a rule where if you are passive you aren't allowed to drop a level, but then poeple just play deliberately badly and that is virtually impossible to monitor. Skill based MM is worse than what is already here.
