Today I was called that by a fellow tanker.  The reason why he called me that was because I destroyed him using a tank you can only get through gold.

 

Now it really didn't bother me at all, because it wasn't the first time and it probaby won't be the last someone will call me this or worse. But it did get me thinking.

 

This game is free...

 

It is honestly a free to play game that all it cost is time.  Nothing in this game forces you to have to buy gold.  And pretty much everything that you can get with gold you can also get with silver (other then the tanks that you can only get with gold).

 

So why is it just because I have spent money on a game I enjoy so much and I show my support by spending my hard earned cash on tanks that I personlly think are cool or would be fun to play makes me pathetic.  That is something I really don't understand.  To me it is just like going out to buy gta or some other game that cost $60-$99 that other gamers feel it's worth spending that much money on (and more when you take into account the dlc).

 

Is it the fact that it is free to play that certain tankers feel that no one should ever have to spend money on it at all.

 

If so then that's a piss poor attitude to have...  this is how I show support to a company that I feel has made a great game (take it it isn't perfect and I have my own issues with it) and I enjoy playing it and would love to continue to play it for as long as they choose to keep it up.

 

What makes this game free to play for alot of gamers out there who have not/or can not spend the money on it, as well as what keeps this game going, are the gamers that show there support by buying cretain tanks that catch their eye.

 

None of the tanks WG have sold have only been exclusive to certain players.  They all have been available to everyone at some point in time and have made reapperances through out the years. And they aren't game breaking or even game changing.  Most if not all are knock offs of their orginal TT counter parts (that either make more silver/xp/crew trainers)  but have no real in game changing effects.

 

Yeah they do cost alot.  But if your not willing or able to buy them, why try to make someone who can feel bad for their purchase.  It's their money and they are only supporting a game that they feel is fun to them.  I mean it because me and others like me that so many other tankers can play this f2p game for free.

 

So instead of trying to call someone out for buying a tank that you don't want to spend money on or you can't spend money on,  you say "Thank You" to them.  We are what is truly keeping this game going.  Not the tankers that are playing for free but the ones that are spending their money on it to support the game and continuing to keep the game for free.

 

So take the time to thank a tanker who is in a gold tank every now and then and stop trying to drag them down cause in the end you only hurting your f2p selves.

Don't let grouchy grouches get to you. I've received sooo many angry messages as well due to premium tanks but in the end, Im here like:

Haters gonna hate! <3

 

We appreciate you! :) Thanks for the support!

Probably the same tanker that sent me a "Ur Trash" message a few hours ago.....  I was in a tech tree tank. Some people just take it personally when you kill them, but it still amazes me that they bother to take the time to send a message.

I'm honestly not the grouchy about it at all.  was laughing the whole time when he was messaging me back trying to see if he can catch me mad or something.  But your right haters are going to hate and players are just going to be mad at you cause you have something they don't.  Was just posting this to get it out there.

 

Thanks.

I got called "scum" from a guy in a Fatherland, because I used APCR against him with my KV-4. Had to remind him that the Fatherland uses APCR as its standard round.

Premium screamium, shoot what you want. lol

This game has honestly been the most free to play game I have ever seen most f2p games have something broken that if you spent money on you gain exclusive rights to use while other players do not...  like I said everything in game that costs gold can be bought with silver alot of games out there are not like that.  And honestly the tanks you can only get with gold are not op at all most of the time inferior counter parts.  They do offer some advantages but nothing like in match advantages.

I only play with Premium Tanks because it increases my enjoyment of the game, I use APCR every time on certain tanks where I have no chance but at Tier 5 mostly. Let that sad case drown in his own tears. When you buy Premium Tanks/Time you are contributing to WG's development of the game.

 

 

I see my contribution as helping them pay for the servers i'm on even if there is a micro-glitch on EU :)


Premium Tanks:       T14 - M6A2E1 - T34 - Churchill III - IS-2 Berlin - Fatherland IS3-A - Captured KV-1 - Champion Panther/M10

I translated a message I received in Russian recently and turns out it said 'moron'.

Also me and R35T received the same mail from the same player who died early in a game we dominated simply saying 'you suck' after we realised he was in the game we politely asked him to plug his mic in but got no response.

I guess I should add that the main point about this topic was supposed to be why is there so much salt thrown at the tankers who pay money in support of the game by tankers who just play completely for free... I see it not only in game but also in forums too.

You will always have these people that don´t read up what the game is about and all it´s depth´s. I recently also received a nice fan letter because I destroyed somebody in my 112. According to him "gold tanks" as he called themm were better than the tech tree tanks, and that I should play more with tech tree tanks because according to him that was for the real tankers.  I couldn´t resist but to laugh at him, but I still took time to explain to him that premium tanks in general are not better than there tech tree variants. He claimed he understood but yet in the end he still stuck by his story that "gold tanks" were better and there for pay 2 win hahaha. I also advised him to never expose your side armour when your in a duel with another tank, yet he claimed to that it was unfair that I kept shooting him form the side hahahahaha, Which wasn´t the first time I receiced fanmail from somenody on the enemy team who was angry that I destroyed him (while he was tracked or I kept him tracked), those kind, but you get fanmail in this and other games for the most redundant stuff. I always find it entertaining because you can´t pay for entertainment like that.:popcorn:

Yeah, that a common one, to just like receiving a messages that state that your a "noob". It kinda amazes me that there are so many Mr. Perfects (WWF wrestler) out there who always seem to have flawless games hahaha. At the same for people who always totally go mental on there mics during a game, oftend is there own dumb fault that they got destroyed, but for some it´s easier to point to some one else, personally I find it hilarious that these people don´t seem to understand that they make utter fools out themselfs, but like I said before. You can´t pay for entertainment like that.

Still say they should make all tracers the same color so no one can tell what you're firing. If you're getting hit you need to move no matter what they're firing.
