Im getting the feeling that WG is running on fumes and that why the cash grab. They need liquid funds like now and that why the cash grab with the PR. What do you think?

Theres no way theyre running on fumes. WG is likely the richest gaming company in the world at this point.

WG was rich as [edited]last time I looked.

Which is why they feel confident enough to screw with the community. All I can say is I hope the community bites back. Wallets closed, people.

Nah. EA, Activision, SEGA - to name a few, are much richer.

Yep, could be..

 

the billions in profit have apparently not gone into the title..

 

so where then?

 

Prices have steadily been going up .. 

 

This could be a test to determine if customer s would pay over $200 , for a virtual item , with no intrinsic value at all.

 

Then all prices could be inflated 

 

These non tangible  'products' are cheap to copy (with no production costs).

 

They could easily give every customer it free at no expense to them.

greed will make bandits of us all :Smile_smile:

It does - look at all those that gamble with the lootboxes.  I wasn't going to but did for a chance at the Misery and the Payfast.  I got the Payfast (and other premium ships) so I don't feel like I overpaid (this time) but it was greed pure & simple - and greed is not good.  How many people bought those boxes and couldn't afford it?

Well, obviously they are (also) testing us, see how far they can push us, etc.

I mean that's pretty much a given.

 

I also expect a lot of psychology to go into this, but as long as it works, then who cares? :Smile-_tongue: They will get their money. It's their business.

 

In the end you're the master of your own wallet. Or at least I am of mine.

 

I have left WoT previously and never returned (even though I tried several times) and WoWS was far less bad. But these latest attempts do seem to indicate that this seems to be changing. Just keep enjoying the ride while it's still enjoyable and abandon ship once it is not anymore:Smile_great:

give a meh ship to the CCs, buff it so it looks fantastic, then announce you can get this by building it over Christmas, let the CCs show the dockyard with doubloon boosters at low levels....then..........then release it all hyped with a grind that is virtually undoable or grind what you can and pay for half of it or just pay a shed load of money....great marketing i must admit....unfortunately they forgot how salty the community is....ooops

For some reason they seem to regularly underestimate the chance of backlash from the community. Or they overestimate how far they can push us.

The end result is kinda the same though.
