i was just reading a conversation in another thread..

people talking about one rental vehicle for frontlines is too little because everytime they die, they need to wait 4-5 minutes..

that means their team plays with less player/ers probably for a considerable amount of time..

 

and here i had this idea..

make frontlines an exclussive for premium accounts ONLY..

and allow players to play with a minimum of 3 suitable vehicles in their garage..

you solve the problem of teams playing with less players, and at same time giving a reason for premium accounts to exist..

 

make more people even buy premium days..

 

like TV, you know..

TV is free.. but NOT all the channels.. for some specific channels you need to pay to watch..

 

WoT could be kinda the same..

free to play, but frontlines would be an "exclussive" for premium accounts ONLY..

 

as well as the rewards it brings with it..

3 tank requirement should be sufficient to solve dead teammates for 5 minutes. Premium account is not a big deal.

could make a "free version" of frontlines as well for everyone else..

 

frontlines tier IV or VI..

but make the tier VIII frontlines and its rewards exclussive for premium accounts..

it is a big deal.. if someone that wanna play frontlines, cant play it for free, they would pay premium days..

 

it would be exactly like TV.. you wanna watch FOX lets say, but FOX is not free.. (at least not here) and FOX shows my favorite series.. so i pay for it..

 

many people complaining that with all the free personal reserves that everyone gets in the game, there is no point for someone to keep buying premium account..

Frontlines, could be a VERY good reason to keep people buying premium.. exactly because they are so popular..

Very hard to see which one would be more profitable my idea or yours. I think current state is ok and is meant to pressure players to buy more tier 8 tanks. Wargaming is dishing out some of the more over performing tier 8s premiums during this event. I guess their current idea is that players with less than 3 tanks will be tempted to buy their tier 8 tank bundles. It will probably work. No need for premium account purchases when the cost of a premium tank is equal to 6 month premium account.

yes you can have your own option, But to make FL only premium accounts is just Bull. no one has to wait 4 to 5 mins to get back in  the game(only if you want the same tank 4 - 5 min), all your tier 8 tanks can be played in FL, just pick another.

I would say make Frontlines exclusive to those who know how to spell exclusive? :trollface:

 

Just kidding, but it's a no vote for me.  You want exclusive, play Clan Wars.  Why look to limit the player base that plays more than it already is, in that those who don't have or can't rent a tier 8 can't play.

read how this topic started mate..

i was reading another topic where the OP was complaining that he ONLY has one tier VIII tank.. THE rental one.. and he was asking from WG to allow for more rentals available for credits..

the OP of that topic, has ONLY low tier tanks in his garage.. couldnt play frontlines at all.. but he is playing with that one rental he can have.. and he was complaining that he has to wait 4 minutes everytime to respawn because of no more rentals for credits..

I can't think of a single instance where a premium player get anything other than double credits and double XP over a free player.

 

WoT can'rt deny anyone from playing a popular format. Then it wouldn't be a "Free to play" game.

aparently, too many paying customers admit that because of all the free PRs, there is no reason to keep buying premium days..

well, if all those "sad" paying customers stop paying because the product doesnt worth their money anymore, eventually servers will start shutting down one after another..

 

the question is,

you want a "free to play" game with some exclusives for premium members? or a dead game?

 

i know many free to play games.. i played a couple before this one as well..

many of them selling extra content in DLCs.. 

players can play the basic version of the game for free, but for the extra content they need to pay..

the first paragraph of my original post mate..

i am sorry if its not clear, i meant that rental was the only tier VIII tank he has.. and he was asking from WG to give more rentals for credits..

 

because there are 2 rentals more but only for gold.. he cant rent them..

Then that person would need to grind out some tier 8's or buy them. it's just part of WoT.

depends where the devs making most of their income..

if selling premium vehicles pays them a satisfying income to keep them going, its all fine..

but if the premium days is a large part of the pie, then they need to give exclusives for premium accounts.. else eventually people will stop buying days..

Yes three rentals in FL would be nice for those players.

All they need to do is have 3 rentals available for people to play and also have a 3 tier 8 requirement . 

 

Personally i could care less since this mode is just fun , i want to win , but it's about a different mode to have fun with.

 

I have been here since 2011 and have never bought any premium time(i have spent some money on premium tanks), plus i know many players that are the same.  Why would anyone want to pay more money just to play this mode. I'm sure there are a few players out there that would like a win rate requirement .

 

Why would anyone ever suggest something to make us players pay more, WG is pretty good at that on their own.

no need to exclude non premium accounts completelly from frontlines..

they can play free tier IV version.. and much lower rewards of course..

I have the Defender and Skorpion G in my garage right now. I would have no problem getting a couple more Tier 8s and premium time. I meet your requirements, the question is with my current stats do you think it would be fair to the others. I do not.
