Where does it say that Battle Pass is going to cost money? The only description I can find is from the preview page.If I'm reading that right, you earn points from playing randoms. There's no requirement to pay anything extra to join in. :unsure:

 

Tbh this articles doesn't say much at all. it does not say that you have to pay for it, but neither you don't. It could very well be a thing reserved to prem account like the vault or the daily bond mission.

Really don’t know but it does seem strange not to make it clear it will be free considering the name Battle Pass, then again this is WG we are talking about.

Maybe, but I wouldn't have known what a Battle Pass was & still don't really (thanks to the OP's extensive explanation).  Guess I don't play those games.  Closest I've seen is a Season Pass - pre-bought DLCs.

In gaming it’s a recognised term for buy this and get the opportunity to get these items.

If it's free, it's good, if you have to pay money, it's garbage.

Season passes as other AAA gaming companies implement them are just one of many ways of milking the playerbase with bovine fecal matter. I shudder to think what WG's take on that would be.

I not sure how standard it is or how widely it's implemented - never heard of it myself.  The OP's description makes it sound like Premium time.

Wow, that's interesting considering you don't know what you are buying.

All the info we have so far says it's just going to be another grind to add to the grinds.

Do you know what a battle pass is? Obviously you unlock battle pass rewards by playing the game they're attached to.. :facepalm:

It’s more buy a battle pass and then when playing the game you’ll get the chance to access content. Think of it like missions which you have to pay to participate in and the may even be exclusive content.

In other words It's a Marathon/Event! That's been relabeled by the Marketing Department very similar to the Steel Hunt event for bonded equipment and other pieces like extra credits, boosters etc.  as a reward.

 The paid element will be to complete it faster with the free option being probably having to play something like 8 hours a day for a average player..

Same as it usually is just wearing a sightly different Marketing/PR Makeup.. :girl:

The same as in other games but for World of Tanks. :trollface:

Adding it to WoT in that sort of form would just be what we know as Premium.  We already have 2 types of premium so I'd put my money on WoT Battle Pass being something quite different and free - as described in their announcement.

 

At this point trying to keep player numbers up must be important to WG so think of it as encouraging grinding.

Why add more bs "features" which are actually ruining online gaming?
