I opted out of WOTs after their last marketing ploy around Xmas time where they were pressuring gamers into buying booster packs.  Since thinking about buying a months premium once more, I return to find out they have upped their prices.  I can't seem to find an option to purchase  30d days premium.   

 

This Game is Getting Overly Expensive.  Free to play is certainly an illusion.  It's free to play, however the scope for dissatisfaction on an even playing field is quite depressing.  Especially with recent price hikes and marketing strategies that force people who have already invested large amounts of money and time. 

 

11:83US for 14 Days Pffft ... you've got to be *&^%ing kidding.  I've spent and was happy to keep spending but not at that ridiculous price.  Given the rate at which this company keeps changing its marketing campaigns with latest history of ploys and the upping of these prices ... meh ... WOT can go *%&! themselves.

They got me.  I just bought 14 Days. 

 

Not happy about it.  I guess I will just have to make the most out of those 14 days.  Playing a non premium account is just too much of a handicap for me.  I don't have the time to sit around all day for hours on end like other.  That said, all the best to those that can.  Nor do I have the money to by into the larger chunks to save on bulk buying. 

You right though ... but instead of stop spending ... I think the best solution is to uninstall and buy into a game that does not take advantage of loyal gamer. 

 

I don't mind paying ... but not at the expense that is currently required with the amount of disincentives marketers employ.

I'm In the market for a new Tank game not as greedy as WOT ... give me a heads up if you know of any.

Cheers.

~ Dave.

 

Edit ... I read ya about the Gold ... Still does not add up.  Thanks for the Tip anyways.

https://na.wargaming...p/premium/1383/

Premium days can be won by doing missions, etc.

Yes - I'll but that now as well.  TY   

I still think it should not be a special.

 

At any rate .. thanks for the tips guys.  

 

The missions are too confusing for me ... the layout and all ... BUT ... I will try that too ... although don't have much time.

 

Thanks again.

You get out of the game what you're willing to put into it...  effort/time included.

They took that out about 1 or 2 weeks ago ., when they sold the package Combat Car and 30 day for 12.99 .. They took out just the 30 day at 13.99 at that time .

Wots effort to monetize most aspect of their game usually has the direct opposite effect, but they deserve credit for trying. Possibly selling items that people want would end with greater profits and a happier base...:coin:;)

I don't have the free time I had before, but now I have the money I did not have before, so spending it is my decision.

 

The same for you, nobody told you to spend on the game if you do not want to spend on it... So whats the big deal if WG want to rise the prices?

 

NOTE: As a fun fact, in the "Free For Play" games it is spent even more than in any other type of console game or by subscription, but its fault of the customer when him don't know when to stop :D

lol - White_Runner

 

and Yes ... It has been 15 - 16 a month to play premium in the past.  

 

I bought the special pack thanks to Hurk.

 

You get what you put in ... Smiles at that ... I put in a lot ... 

 

Let me complain and if you assist ... then I will comply.  Hurk actually did that and I spent more money.  I don't mind spending when I get assistance like that.

This doesnt make sense?

Last tine I looked, 3000 gold cost ~$18nzd (20 like $12usd) and a month of prem is 2500 gold. So by buying 30 days for $16usd you're paying far more than you should be?

Every couple of months I get a 30% or 20% off coupon for use in the premium shop.  I use this to buy premium at a discount and I never buy 30 days, it is not a good deal.

Source your data on this , as I have been looking for it for a long time.  As far as I know it is not published.  Even if it was you would not be able to correlate the data with your supposition easily.  I call BS on your garbage opinion.

First, to OP, I've been noticing that the 30 days ONLY premium time package gets removed from the shop the last few times that WG has bundled it with gold, tanks, and/or credits. Also, the price for the 30 days ONLY premium time, when they have it in WoT, is $12.59USD. 

Furthermore, and this is very important, if you want ONLY the 30 days premium time, you can buy it from either WoWP or WoWS shop. At the time of this reply, it's currently available on both sites.

 

As for some of the other posts, this is a FREE TO PLAY game. And, like many other FTP games, players can easily have hours of fun without spending a single penny on the game.

We all have opinions, just like you. Whatever, cause ultimately we don't matter in wots quest to increase their bottom line...Also, I don't care what you believe or not believe.
