At least they're offering the base tank with nothing else...

But yeah, it's getting pretty stupid.

Since its a free to play game, this is how WG makes money for those who VOLUNTARILY buy.

 

If it was a subscription game, it would be a monthly fee (10-30 bucks a month?) And would be MANDATORY for everyone.

 

Which do you prefer???  

 

I guess there is a third option by allowing WG access to your Internet history, contact list, camera, microphone,  etc, like "free" phone apps. 

 

Oh, I guess the fourth option would be for WG to make and maintain their games at absolutely no charge to anyone.

 

I'm curious to see how you respond...

OP, when you go watch a movie for 2 hours, what are you getting for your money?  2 hours of entertainment at the price of whatever it costs at the theater of your choice.  If you go to a concert, it is a similar experience.  A dinner out which may be an hour experience and a 5-15 minute experience later at the toilet costs how much?  

 

This pixel experience is more of the same; spending money for an entertainment experience.  Put it in that light and think on it. $15-$20 to watch the latest Hollywood remake for a couple hours?  Or $5-$80 to buy pixels to blow up other peoples' pixels for as many hours as you want.  It is discretionary money spending.  If you earned it, the best way to enjoy it is at your discretion in a manner of your choosing.

That's not exactly true, it's effectively the same as paying for many other forms of entertainment.

I've got Serb pegged as a BetaMax kinda fella. His old bootleg Beta of Battleship Potemkin just gathering dust. 

As to the OP, I say to each their own. I wouldn't do it personally anymore, unless it was something that I would use quite often. I've only met this tank twice and both times I shot it where the front drive wheel meets the hull and the poor bastard was set alight, both times. I'm not impressed.

If it's not worth it to you the next don't get it. If someone who enjoys the game and has disposable income who are you or anyone for that matter to say it's a waste or that they shouldn't.

You must be new here. They've always done 3 levels of packages for new tank sales; the tank itself, the tank with some goodies, and the tank with gold, equipment, full crew, and equipment. This is completely in line with what Wargaming does with their premium sales.

 

They aren't forcing you to pay 99 bucks just for the tank itself, though i highly doubt you would know how to scroll down on the premium shop because "ZOMG BIG NUMBERS THAT ARE COMPLETE AND UTTER BULL" mentality that is so bloody prevalent on this forum.

Whoa dude. Be careful. They might see something logical and have a brain malfunction.

I'm reading the OPs rant and like that it's a pixelated font.

just think how many people scoff at spending 40 bucks but will choke down 40 bucks in cigarettes in two days or whatever guilty pleasure they have. Some people's guilty pleasure is a game.
