From what I know, WOT granted LOADS of gold to certain players through clan events and other things like these. Basically, doublons - being less available - are worth more (despite the same shop price) and WG (understandably) prefers people to buy doublons than to spend their bloated WOT gold reserves in WoWs. There still is a possibility of transferring PURCHASED gold/doublons through support tickets if you actually paid money and the stuff ended in wrong account. And premium accounts are shared so WoT gold can be used for that.

If you have excess gold on WoT account you can always convert it to premium time for WoWs.

That's what I did a long time ago :)

Money of course. I'm pretty sure it only carries over into World of Warplanes to try and revive that game.

Apparently so. I was told it had improved significantly in the last year or so but it didn't really motivate me to give it another try.

It's funny that WG isn't even reacting to this anymore and just "let it boil" in hope it won't cook over.

Shall we up this question again in the Q&A thread to get someone to write the same answer again just to show them that we still care?

I am quiet sad WG went for the easy fast money without realizing how much that hurts the already damaged customer relationship to those old smarter players.

The time WG maybe will unite both is when clan wars arrives in WOWS. Without a way to earn gold in WOWS, players who also play WOT and are in 'gold earning' clans will spend more time in tanks earning gold and then spending it in WOWS with very little effort of actually playing a ship or two.  

If it were suddenly united at present, there would probably be a big drop in player numbers jumping back into tanks trying to earn gold.

The problem is that the reasoning behind NOT linking this just makes sense. The actual value of gold and doublons is not the same. And WG actually DOES transfer your doublons if you purchase them for WoT but want them for WoWs... only that's not what people want, is it. They want to get the gold they got from clan activities in one game and use it as doublons for the other game that doesn't give their version of "gold" quite as generously. Is it that unfair that WoWs doesn't really want their gold economy wrecked by WoT gold economy?

 

By the same token someone could say that - since gold can be used to unlock free experience or be exchanged for credits, then clearly there should also be a way to transfer either of these from WoWs to WoT, right? And nevermind that both credits and freeXP are so much easier to grind in WoWs that it would destroy WoT economy completely for people playing both. Who cares that one good high tier match in WoWs can be the equivalent of a couple days of credits grind in WoT. "We want". Yeah, I surely wouldn't mind being able to use my XX million of spare WoWs credits in WoT but I can understand why that's never going to happen and seeing this as unfair would be ridiculous. And I really see no reason why the same reasoning wouldn't apply to gold as well. The economy of both games - in each aspect: credits, freeXP and gols - is just too different. It wasn't originally planned to differ so much (that's why originally a high level of account integration was planned) but that's how it turned out. And while there are PLENTY questionable decisions by WG, them not wanting to integrate the gold between WoWs and WoT, wrecking WoWs economy in the process, really isn't one of them.

I call BS. While it may be true for <1% of players that actualy do get a noticeable (for WG) amount of Gold in clanmaps, most old players that play WoWS now don't have access to that constant stream of gold. Also that wouldn't cause players to wander off back to tanks, as if they really are still in those clans, then those players are still playing mostly WoT right now anyways.

The excuse of massive amounts of clangold flooding in WoWs just doesn't hold water, as it wouldn't actualy affect the game save some odd x00 number of players suddendly getting their hands on a lot of Dubloons.

 

The excuse that Dubloons is worth more than Gold in WoT is BS too as long as free xp and/or credits aren't shared (which they never said they would do). For Dubloons however they actualy promised to unite it (Gold).

Also for giving out Gold/Dubloons I dare to say that WoWS is actualy giving out more premium currency to the average players with the reward for Rank 1 in ranked season.....

 

All we want is WG to fulfill their promise because some (not me actualy) in fact BOUGHT GOLD in Wot thinking it would carry over to WoWS. (back iun the day WoWs wasn't out yet)

All I want is my Gold laying around in WoT for like 2 Years now. And yes I actualy use that Gold to puy Premiumtime that is actualy shared but i still have more than enough even after 2 years......

 

So no this is not about saving dublooneconomy it is about cashing in on players buying digital currency TWICE.

 

Edit: and how does it break economy? They already earned money on most of the WoT Gold......... It is one company after all......

Well guys, first I believed this topic will go all the way like the others before - going in circles about speculations of what WG is thinking.

 

All has changed by now.

A while ago we have been informed by ECTAR as follows:

ectar_statement.jpg

 

and during that time and after the Wargaming website had the following information available for World of Warships:

wgsite_20160823.jpg

 

However if you check the site now you see a different thing:

wgsite_20170623.jpg

 

This is the public Wargaming.NET website: http://wargaming.com/en/games/world-of-warships/about

Therefore it is official that World of Warships will not be part of the GOLD unification.

It is SO decided that Wargaming changed the description of services on its main website.

 

Now this step that I believed WG will never do establishes one option to players: to claim that WG misinformed them about a major game element, that impacted decisions and spending on the game for which now compensation must be given.

And some of these that "in fact BOUGHT GOLD" already managed to have it transferred to WoWs manually through support ticket system. Because it was (is? I'm not sure, I've certainly read about it being done) possible. But only IF these were the gold coins you BOUGHT.

 

No my last information is that it was RU only and only less than 5k.

 

Edit and i read you post like inly those players that bought gold now and wanted dubloons instead managed to exchange it becaue "oops i purchased on the wrong site".

This would still leave those that purchased A LOT of gold way BEFORE WoWS was released in the rain.

Edit 2: and beside that what is wrong in the idea to buy gold and have it available for BOTH games for the case you are active in both? (not me though)

Ok, once again, shorter, 'cause I'm pissed about my post being eaten...

It was (probably still is) possible to use support ticket system to get your gold manually transferred. As long as it was actually gold you bought and not acquired through other means. So the ones who had these plans (as stupid as they sound) to buy gold for one game to use it in the other one - these just had to go through some extra hassle and could have their doublons in WoWs.

 

Also, look at the next post. FreeXP was originally supposed to be integrated too. Now imagine the Tanks freeXP economy if people could use all the WoWs freeXP farming tools to get freeXP usable there...

 

EDIT:

"Only RU" and "less than 5k only" you say? Well, I don't care enough to look for proof on these very forums. But I'm pretty sure you're wrong and we had people confirming that they did have their gold transferred... I mean, I certainly don't read Russian forums, so it had to be here.

For that reason i understood and supported from day 1 that they will never merge free xp.

But that is not the topic, the gold is.

I will try to open a tiket though if your statement is true.

Still leaves a bitter taste in the mouth though as WG outright LIED concerning this topic (technical issues my a*ss)

 

Edit: Oh and the issue still stands that if you play both and want Premiumcontent in ships and tanks you have to pay more because you can't use the extra dubloons you bought (because the premiumcontent was cheaper that the next bigger Dubloonpackage) on the Tankcontent.

You ultimately have to choose which game you spent your money on resulting in (for me at least) only playing one of the games which makes it a stupid shortminded decision in my book.

I call BS. ....more boring me, me, me stuff

 

I wrote, 'I think' and 'maybe' in my post which is some possible reasons and guesses on my part so calling it BS and getting all huffy is a bit strange but you obviously know best. :sceptic:
