    Screen resolution support for 2880 x 1620 ?

    Not sure about your specific resolution, but I'm playing the game at 3440 x 1440 without any problems. Setups with higher resolutions compared to the common 1080p are definitely possible.
  2. I'd guess it benefits WG, yes. Not within WG itself, but when comparing it to other games and companies. A common metric to compare all kinds of online services is "monthly active users" (MAU). Comparing the actual activity of players between different games is rarely possible as they have different gameplay. For example, counting the number of games played between WoWs or WoT due to the different number of players and average round time. Even a simple login, will boost WG's number on certain monthly active charts

    ST - Soviet cruisers branch split

    The missing Moskva compensation is beyond me. For me it seems to work like this: Everyone with a driving license gets a car for free. The ones already owning a car get nothing. This is only fair, because nobody is loosing anything. WG logic.

    Gambling and Lootboxes...

    This is what the store presents me as payment options for loot containers. Credit cards are not strictly necessary.

    Gambling and Lootboxes...

    The premium shop has a lot of different payment options, besides credit cards. My bank offers an account starting with age 14.

    Gambling and Lootboxes...

    Children are more susceptible to gambling compared to adults. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44736452 Sure, responsible parenting will mitigate some of the effects, but there is always the risk of kids falling for this. There is a reason minors are not allowed to play in a casino. It just so happens that the WG homepage shows a PEGI 7 rating for the game.

    IMHO the WG containers are heavy on the gambling side. It's true that one will get always some value out it. So in that sense they are better compared to other games where duplicates provide nothing. However, they still use the same exploratory mechanics to get people buying them. I'm thinking of the Royal Navy containers in combination with the DD missions. If one wants to get the mission desired, it is all about rolling the dice again and again. Personally, I'm happy to give WG some money as long as I know exactly what I'll get.

    In game economy

    I agree, the in-game economy is very harsh. Even with premium account I find it impossible to naturally progress through higher tiers. From a gameplay perspective I'd find it much better if one could earn enough money to buy the next higher tier once the current one is maxed out. This works in lower tiers, but starting with T8 this changes. Without earning additional silver in lower tier or premium ships I find it impossible to progress. I don't like to think of playing this game without premium. I recommend putting in the time to earn at least one premium ship with the events placed throughout the year. That should help with the grind. Christmas is coming up, there's most likely the option to earn a premium. Last year's Duke of York is a decent ship. When pressed for credits I find myself picking the premium consumable containers instead of the credit ones. The consumables allow you to live longer and be more effective in the game, resulting in more credits earned.

    EU server down?

    Same here. I got kicked out as the battle ended. Not able to login since then.
