They can play for free without equipment, and probably be more use since their tank will be lighter.

But you have always been able to use complex equipment without having to demount it and without losing credits.  It just required a little organisation.  Not much to ask in return for playing for free is it?

 

I don't agree with you, Homer. Your points are far fetched and theoretical, with no connection to reality.

I would say "play-for-free" without equipment is misleading to potential new players as a player would expect an acceptable gaming experience based upon how WG is marketing the game.

 

The difference between playing with equipment and no equipment  is so big, that the game shouldn't be promoted as "free-to-play".

 

It is not ok to tell someone to drive around in traffic with a car that has 3 wheels ? It is probably doable, but not recommended.

You guys know that if you buy equipment at discount you can sell them for the same price? So you won't lose any credits.

 

That's why lots of players stock up equipment when on discount, so they can equip their tanks without using gold to demount the equipment from other tanks.

I hope you find out before nobody is posting in the forum anymore, and there are hardly any players online.

For the price of  3 top tier pieces of equipment (1,750,000 credits) you can currently buy 50 demounting kits which is worth 500 Gold in the old system. This is a seriously positive outcome for free to play players and allows a considerable amount of flexibility over the swapping of the 3 ‘free to move’ equipments ( two really as no one ever moved or ever used a tool box unless they were going up the UK armoured TD line). Every one can now experiment by moving empty without having to spend gold. Well done WG, I think this is a good move.

You're obviously not aware about the "Auto remove & replace" feature for equipment and consumables in Aslains Mod Pack. This is what frustrates me so, because now I have to 1 - buy what I want for each tank or 2 - mess around with it manually and acquire their "de-mounting" kits to remove the limited number of equipment items I have already purchased. But now I'm just repeating myself. 

Unless a mod for a game is required to fix something severely broken, I don't use mods for any game.  Multiplayer games in particular I despise them.   So if a mod causes anyone problems, I couldn't care less.

As for your problem.  1.  Uninstall the mod.  2. yes buy what you want for each tank.  Which isn't that difficult as the only thing that has changed is the bino and camo which are no longer free to demount. Everything else works as before in terms of cost.  How many tanks do you have in 3K battles? Try to enjoy the game instead of seeing it as an obstacle in acquiring more tanks.  You are supposed to play the game because you enjoy it.  If the actual fighting doesn't interest you, perhaps you should quit now that you haven't spent that much time with it.  Although it's never too late to quit, it's better to quit with 3 thousand games than 300000.

Most players can only see what is taken away or what it is going to cost. Good job on finding a positive slant, the WoT playerbase is really, really negative.

I thought it was possible to uninstall the game without demounting all equipment. Maybe he is a disciplined programmer who likes to free memory before exiting his programs.

There was something wrong with them... as you don't see them anymore. Irony?

Because equipment costs gold now? What a nonsense comment. 

 

This is like the whole stupid premium ammo argument, people claiming things are 'pay to win' and 'prohibitive to free players' when what they actually mean is they want to spend credits only on stuff they want to like new tanks, but not equipment or premium ammo. 

 

There is no excuse to set up your tanks and be a handicap to your team, certainly not being free to play, and even less so now considering sensible equipment for lower tiers is much cheaper.

 

If people leave the game because they can't cheapskate everything and put camo net and binos on every tank then I think the game is better off without them as they are likely just a burden on their teams anyway.

WG disagrees. Diminishing profits are not what they expected from this extortion strategy.

That's probably about half the player base :) I agree with you from a purely game quality perspective... but 10 years into the games existence and now make this change seems a bit of an odd call.

 

Server/player figures are going to be interesting for August.

You laugh now... Wait until you see a couple of KV-5s disembarking from a TOG II* and smashing all your windows because you refused to buy 500 gold. Happened to me last night. Utterly terrifying. They pinned me down on the floor with their tracks. My hands are 90% thinner now as a result.
