Playing since 2011. 

Since this year has brought no better gameplay for me, I'm not really willing to pay for a double barrel tank, that does not interest me. Untill Wargaming starts to check the balancing of old tanks like T34 for example I wont pay a thing anymore.

Do I regret to P2P ? -  no. I had 8 Years of fun and now I am waiting for a major balance update to fix OP Tanks and super outdated tanks to a more health balance.

Some free to play players have a paying job and can afford paying but choose instead to pay tons of money for cigarettes and drinking while also buying the new PES or FIFA every year for 70 euros but refuse to buy anything for WOT.

 

I call that CHEAP.

 

Why not make your life easier IF you can afford it ?

 

Some people who are Scrooges also exist. They think they will keep their money in the afterlife.

 

Buying 1 , 2 or 3 premium tanks and occasionally some premium time wont do you any harm.

 

I dont suggest going ham and spending the money i spent or the amounts i heard other people spent but 200-500 euros over the course of 8 years isnt a big deal.

I never forgot a down-and-out they found dead in a woodland in England years ago

 

Moving him wasn't so easy because he seemed to be really heavy

When they checked him out his coat had a stash of gold bars sewn in

It's a classic:

"Gold Noob Dies Camping Bush"

The game's brutal, no doubt.

I work hard. I don't smoke. I keep a bottle of Absolute and a bottle of Baily's in the  refrigerator. So, I spend money on Wot. This game gives me immense pleasure.

Don't want to know how much I've spent over the years. It may scare me. Suffice to say I've had premium for most of it and I own a garage full of premium tanks. I will be buying a few loot boxes but will probably buy less this year than previous years as I have little left to accomplish and am winding down WoT. 

I need to buy a 3 tier tens and then I need to find a new goal or a new game.

Been a hell of a ride though. 

I see WoT as my hobby/vice. I gave up smoking, I do like a tipple (I am married after all) and go out on the town a lot less than I used to. So where's the harm?

Actually one of the things the EU should push is for the disclosure of the amounts spent on grinding games. i would be ashamed... and maybe I wouldn't buy lure boxes.. so until they do you know what will happen... I will find an excuse to do it... LURE BOXES...... precious 703....

In total i've probably spent around 200 euro in WoT and WoT blitz.

I own 4 t8 premiums and paid around 30e/each for the 3 of them. The last one i got from the marathon for free.

Since i already got plenty of premiums i dont think i'll be making any more big purchases, just wot premium time.

 

Ill probs buy the 25 boxes pack and hope to get atleast 4 months worth of gold out of it

y'all really gonna be buying boxes on friday the 13th?

 

More ontopic. 

 

I've spent over £1000 in my time here. But the game has provided me with countless hours of fun, and entertainment so i do not regret most of it.

 

There are some however silly purchases i have made which i have not really got my moneys worth out of.

 

M41 90 - Good vehicle, but i already owned the GF version, bought it again to 3 mark twice, But have yet to get round to it.

AMX Cda 105 - Never gotten round to giving it a proper chance, due to playing other vehicles first

WZ-120 GFT - Same reason as AMX Cda

Considering I have close to 50K games I would say I have paid less than... doing the math... about €0.02 per game (or perhaps €0.025?). I think that is okay. Have had a load of fun and a lot of frustration during this time, and plan on keep on playing for the foreseeable future. I also tend to play a lot more in the winter, and hardly at all in the summer. 

I play no other games so I am not spending any other gaming money.

In total I have spent about £10 a month on this game since I started, mainly it has gone towards Premium time - I haven't bought any T8 Premiums for 'real' money as I consider that they cost too much - I have T8 premiums bought with Loot Box gold or won in loot boxes.

 

I am seriously debating with myself how much to spend on Loot boxes this year I still have 205 days of Premium and I am not that bothered about the tanks that may be in them. I do want to get to Level 10 decorations for the girls and for the blueprints - because I am not going to bother grinding T8 and T9 tanks anymore, just play tanks I like and grind the others on blueprints... I'll get all the tanks this way in the end :)

Theres 4 tanks I'd want to get out of a loot crate, god only knows how much money I'd have to spend to get one of them, so theres really no point in spending anything on loot crates.

Yumm, proper bottles in the fridge!

Not drinking much or at all lately but that's a nice idea.

 

And yea it makes sense to spend some cash on stuff you like doing, obviously nothing wrong with that. Weird how some people think we shouldn't pay the game developers/servers at all. I understand the idea that it's quite expensive if you want to buy everything up that's on offer, but hey it's proper to pay at least something. Calling it free2play is just a marketing term, ofc it can't be for free. Gotta pay the employees and tech expenses somehow.

playing since 2011 .. spent aroung 700-800€ maybe in that time together and i do not regret it every penny was to make my gameplay less tedious and not counting premium time i can still use all the "features" i have unlocked with my credit card ..

 

going to buy 25 boxes since i'm running low on gold for prem time anyway .. anything else i get from there is just extra since i already have all the premium tanks i would ever need

In all fairness... I don't see how this is of any use to you or how it is any of your business.

But yes I've spent my fair share of money on this game in the last 8 years.
