Having worked in the real world I have realised that a company has to make money to survive. ;)

I usually not defending WG but XP earning is sooo easy comparded to what it was 5 years ago with all the booster they throw at you for just playing the game so I dont know what you talking about.

Wargaming are not all about the money but its a major part of running a business.

Try approaching a painter and claiming they charge far too much for what is basically a few pounds worth of paint and canvas.

 

Games free

You can win premium tanks and all you need is one to start earning credits or you can hang around tier 5 and 6 where credits are plentiful.

You pay with time or money some of us do both.

A game in it's end state,losing players across the servers worldwide with their blatancy and just bad game and map designs followed by practically giving away tanks with reduced grind time etc.Just stop buying premium time and tanks.let the wither away with time

"people" would probably pay them more and stay longer if they seriously discussed and transparently displayed what they do about cheaters. As for now it will die a slow death until only the goldshitting aimbots remain .....

That's a decision, you can chose to pay or not to pay. If you choose not to pay...it's free for you.

If WG make it so you are able to pay for the game it is not a free game . Just being able to be paid for the game makes it not a free game .

I get more 100 % XP boosters then I can use up. Not bought premium for over 3 years. Still grinds most tank fast enough.

It's all about making money. They say it's a "FREE TO PLAY" game, but in order to succeed you need to show them the money.

Yes, it's fun in the beginning where WG almost trow stuffat you, but then the harsh reality of this game begins to show it's true colors.

Thats negative , If wg make it so you are not able to pay it would be a free game ,if you are able to pay them , it is then classed as a marketing strategy and not a free game .

As I said...it's a decision you make personally. For you and a minority it's costly....for the majority it's free.:)

Wargaming is a company and they care about their bottom line, that's to be expected. And yes, I agree that they have expanded their offers over the years to entice us into paying for their product(s) and they have placed their offers into plain view when you want to play.

 

Nothing about that is exceptional, it's what every company out there who tries to sell you their product does. And there's a reason for it: it works. So give a company one good reason to not employ a profitable tactic, when every company out there including Wargaming isn't about making their customers happy (which is a bonus if we are, but they're only truly interested in making us happy insofar it helps to sell their product) because they are not charities and we are not the recipients of charity.

 

That said, what are you on about? Grinding lines has never been easier. It rains specials with experience bonuses, top of the tree lines to grind every month, holidays with free premium crew, special events that give us boatloads of credits, an even better premium account option than we used to have, marathons which earn us premium tanks and assorted other loot. And of course your own pet peeve about the nickname: this didn't use to be an option at all, it's an option that got added.

 

We get so much we don't have to pay for. We get a lot of OPTIONS that we can pay for, the oldest of which is the premium account which is now more value for its price than it used to be. Realizing companies want to sell us their stuff is good sense. Claiming a company is nothing but greedy when all of it is optional and they've given us a lot of free stuff they never did five years ago, is nothing but prejudice.

It is not a free game no matter what decision any player makes .
