So, I personally have spent 200- 250 euros for both my account and my brother's (but he hasnt played in the last months). Only for premium tanks.

 

I think that is a reasonable amount and I dont plan on buying anything from WG, because I can manage to play well and earn credits even at tier 10, when I play my fav tanks. I never use food, and I have max 3-6 gold rounds. (On the tanks that dont need gold rounds, or have a bad shell speed, I have 0 gold rounds). I still manage to have the stats I have.

 

Last thing I bought was the  LT432 because I needed something to train crews. I actually used it to train a crew, than send that crew to my soviet medium tanks... (Free to play strategy.) First thing I bought was the FCM 50t.

Spend quite an amount over all those years, prem tanks, prem time, gold etc.
Just bought a month of prem time after enjoying the game for a week as freeloader (after 2 years of hiatus)
However i can't see myself spending additional money on prem tanks anymore as the game really developed away from what i once just genuinely enjoyed. It is still fun but the messed up shell dispersion/accuracy creates some annoying and frustrating moments.
Nowhere near as good as the game once was in 12/13/14. at least imo.

Tbh I have no idea on an exact number. I have a fair bit of premiums. But out of the 31 tier 8's I have, I've only actually paid for 3 of them, and got a gold refund for early events on 1 that I bought the SU-122-44 for to name one. The rest are events, contest prices, or black marked for silver etc over the years. And on tier 7 to 3, It's just under half of them that I've bought. So I can't really complain, as I've gotten back a fair bit from WG vs what I have spent. I bought premium on and off for 3 years before I did stop even with that, and have run on event price premium time for the last 5 years. Gold I suspect I've bought the least of. And not bought that since camo etc came for silver, or could be moved between tanks.

 

Past 3 years I've bought the Pudel and ELC 90... and that's about it. So as a ruff estimate on 5-8 year old prices. It's at least 200 on tanks alone over 8 years. So I suspect I'm close to 350 to 400 ish in total. so about €50 to €43 a year since I came. I can't say I regret much of it. Some tanks have been lacking, but were later buffed to make me more pleased. Inc the T26E4 and Panther M10. But if you look at the per battle price for the Lowe and the E25, vs a game of equal value. I can't really complain when I look at it like that.

 

As for future spending? It's less and less tbh. I doubt I will buy more gold or premium time. And I don't need tanks for crew training or income anymore due to a good selection as is. So for me to buy a new premium tank. It needs to be different enough for me to jump on. As the ELC was for me. Or for a new nation like the Pudel was.

Spent over  £1000, Gold, prem time, and tanks. Don't regret it and will continue to spend as long as i find the game enjoyable, which i currently do. 

 

Game has provided me with countless hours of entertainment, and fun. so supporting it is nothing to regret. Sure it has issue, like any game out there. but it seems to be getting better recently.

I'm ashamed of myself in this regard.

The poll will suffice...

Spend 40 imperial pence a day, say 50c, great value for money. Never buy premium tanks, have a few that have been given out. To put this into context spend less than wife does on newspapers and have more fun, well she gets The Sun biggest pile of tripe, paper not wife, I have ever seen.

I've probably spent close to £2000 over the years maybe. (not entirely sure of the exact amount - could be less or more)

Would be cool if WG added a feature that told you how much you spent (similar to steam badges).

 

most of it was on:

gold / tanks / conversion / premium

I buy the premium tanks as they come out.  The only single tank that was ever sold that I don't have is the A-32.  I've run premium time since 2011.  After the holiday ops this year I had 99k gold.

Don't forget this is only forum members voting, genrally more ' hardcore ' gamers who are more likely to spend large amounts, I expect over the game as a whole people that have spent over 1K are not the majority.

Account made in 2013, spent over 2k euros since then, don't regret it but I spent too much and now only buy sparingly and during discounts, and if it's full price it has to be something I really want.

I think over the years since 2011 I have spent about £1,800 - £2,000 , which when when divided by nine years means about £200pa, which is peanuts when I think how much I spend each year on:

1. Resturants

2. Theatre

3. Lunches

4. Cinema

5. Drinks with friends

6. Takeaway meals

7. Buying flowers for my wife

8. Summer holidays

9. Skiing (I spend a great deal more on this as it is my favourite hobby)

10. Fast cars (I should buy average cars but instead I am always enticed by the slightly faster model with more HP)

 

None of the above will last. They all ephemeral entertainment in a similar way to World of Tanks.

 

So in conclusion World of Tanks costs peanuts and represents good value for money.
