Not exactly good value.

 

Would have thought it clear most players dont want bundled gold and credits as we see every year every month when you make tank bundles.

 

Me, I would buy BIA crews, crew skins, tanks skins, boosters. IF not overpriced in crass money grab bundles.

Seems that WG Minsk is taking another page from WG St Petersburg.


These bundles have been a thing in World of Warships for some time, though WoT does not have the credits-only packs (yet).

Still unsure as to the actual value of these, but at least it's an alternative to the 100€ Fort Knox/Jackpot mega-bundle.

Are these going to be fixed features in the shop (as they are in WoWs) or are they on-and-off offers?

Hi!
One of the best:
1. Step: changing the TotT!
2. Step: sale credit bundle
3. Step: marketing workers high five each other
4. Step: maybe change the Frontline.... but how?
Easy how about players can only use techtree tank and sell premium passport if u want use your own premtank. But onlt fix nummer battle and only for fix prems....

Yep, i guess the marketing teams of the two games are finally talking to each other. Credit bundles coming in WoT, and removal of popular premiums in WoWs, i guess in preparation to switch to a WoT style, limited time cash only offers for the good stuff instead of the sales model they use now.
I hope we will see some other good ideas jumping between the games, like the research bureau from WoWs would be a fine addition to WoT, and especially welcome for veteran players with few things left to grind.

Gold, hardly useful in the game anymore.

Silver, easy to make in the game these days.

 

These bundles are basically useless this way.

terrible value, u can make a million credits in an hour super easy if u just play t8 premium tanks that u could have bought with bonds when u have a free premium day and use a 50% extra credits reserve

i have another suggestion

Let's reverse it and i want to sell you my credits for gold. Not even in your way 1 gold = 400 credits 

Even cheaper 800 credits = 1 gold 

Do we have a deal ?

No ? Why you greedy?

not really a million, realistically 500-600k if youre a 2k+ WN8 player, as some games you will do little damage (15-0 / 0-15 simulator) and some will be 10-15 mins long

If you'd really want me to "help me unlock and kit out my favorite tanks" then you wouldn't have nerfed TotT.

I really want to say more but I don't don't want to get banned :)

Ships that have been removed are only sold again if they were removed due to being unpopular.

 

The ones that got removed for being OP are either confined to holiday loot crates (most of them) or completely impossible to obtain (some OP Tier 4-5 stuff).

Only desperate trihards or trihard re-rolls would pay money for credits. No other reason for such 'credit' sales to exist.

Lol

Step 1:  Nerf TotT by reducing discounts and removing x5s
Step 2:  Sell x5s for TotT, and credit packs so that people can actually afford going up the trees that fast without discounts

Step 3:  ????

Step 4:  Profit

Alternate solution: Stop at Tier 6/7 and give them the middle finger

First lower discounts in TotT and then introduce credit bundles for €..... Shameless next step in monetizing the game. I would rather use a stronger word then shameless but let's stay polite.

 

I'm really wondering how the current costs of running the game using it's full potential are being percieved by the average player. Compared to the average Dutchie, i have a very, very nice annual income. And looking across Europe, our average income is already quite high. I find this game to be far too expensive already, simply in cash to pay for monitized elements and more importantly set off against the quality of the game as it is. Wondering how players in less whealthy countries see this.

This game is free to play... 

To my mind, WG is missing an opportunity to smartly monetize on the user base, but if you can control your spending urges, you can enjoy this game for years with reasonably low costs.

Interesting. The only thing I'd definitely say is "needed" is a premium account, which is about £8/€9 per month. Absolutely manageable cost in a EU country, as you said. Apart from this, it's only your choice how much you allow yourself to be tempted by the premium vehicles and other extras. Those are not necessary at all, after an initially getting some T8 premiums for making credit gaining easier (which can be done economically via marathons).

There are hundreds of regular tanks in the game to get and play, several campaigns/missions to complete, marks of excellence to chase, events, etc.. these are all things you can get withouth additional cash investment. Everything else is just fluff and convenience you buy... Did I need to get an IS3A after having the Defender and the IS6 to play with? Honestly, no. But I wanted to have one for a long time. :trollface:
And if you think it's expensive, then don't buy it. You can still enjoy the game without it.

Sometimes I think people nowadays forget to play WoT for what it is and only care about the current events, missions and rewards. Having a nice round in a regular tank is apparently not enough anymore, if it's not part of something bigger.
So to summarize, i'd say if you value your time even a bit, you get a premium account. Apart from that, it's free to play. :)
