I logged into my NA-server account today and spotted a news item which I didn't think I'd seen around here:

 

https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/sales-and-events/paypal-recruitment-rewards/

 

Has anyone else seen that one yet? Seems a lot like the one we had a few months back for doubloons, albeit with the notable exception that to qualify the new recruit now has to get to T6 instead of T5.

 

Seriously you whales, you've got to stop spending so much; that way they'll start bribing us EU-server players with real beer tokens as well :Smile_trollface:

So paying a bounty for attracting new paying customers? Sounds to be a wee bit on the desperate side to me...

I mean, giving stuff in game away for it.. ooookay...

But even paying real money instead of in-game goods or their own imaginary in-game currency...

Have the player numbers on the US server dwindled away lately?

I was wondering that. I know that NA doesn't have as many players as here, perhaps they're also less likely to make purchases (I'd guess things are more expensive over there as it's the region with the highest average wealth of all the WoWs servers). There doesn't seem to be any requirement that the new players are paying customers per se, it's probably that old chestnut of creating new opportunities for marketing (or padding out the server numbers to give an appearance of better health). The interesting part to me (other than the raised requirement to T6) is that they're encouraging people to link their PayPal accounts to WoWs, I'm wondering if that's not the main thrust of the exercise...

The last time they did this the game got overrun by bots. Almost as if WG doesn't learn from their mistakes. :cap_hmm:

Good thing this is limited to NA only this time at least.

As an Eastern Europen I have to say I have nothing against Russian/Soviet bias. Even more I am absolutely in favour of our russian overlords. Long live Comrade Putin and the Party!

It may seem our country is playing a trojan horse within the EU for the russians but I have to strictly disagree. There is no such thing and like this there is no russian bias.

До свидания!

NA need more players, this kills two birds with one stone.

Adolf Putin? Czar Vlad? As a Canadian, I don't like the guy at all. Hilarious that Vlad denies that 1.4 billion mansion is not his but then he never says who actually owns & uses it, lol. He knows, ofc.

I feel you may have missed the incredibly cunning and subtle wordplay there, mate. Try having a look at the link in my post...

Perhaps. I saw the same advertisement. This offer shows the true state of affairs in NA server.

They want to sucker their player base to do their recruitment work for them rather than actually making their product better themselves.

Personally, I value my RL friends & family more than subjecting any of them to an increasingly useless and wreaked game.

 The main problem, ofc, is WG only cares about suckering more new players out of more money.

Yep, it's pretty nakedly mercenary of them. Seems pretty desperate as well...

I don't often look at references but I did since you asked. Personally, I like french fries with just gravy - forget the cheese curds. If I wanted cheese I'd just sprinkle some kind of real grated cheese on my fries (but not both together).
