Two words. Martin, Shkreli.

 

....and that has what to do with WG selling a product for entertainment?

So, are you saying that if you owned a business, you would try to make as little money as possible?  If it were me, I would try to make as much as possible.  I would definitely push the envelope to try to figure out where that price point would be.  I guess that is just me.:)

It could be argued that would be unethical and exploitative practice, but whatever.

This should be interesting.  How exactly is trying to make as much money as you can from selling your product, unethical and exploitative?

Just a reminder of the conversation that led us here.

Ok, but that still doesn't answer the question about what that has to do with WG, which this whole thread has been about.  You are taking a product of one type, entertainment, and trying to compare it to a product of a different type, life saving.  It doesn't really work.

This statement, in conjunction with the statement you quoted, in essence says that all companies that try to make as much as possible are unethical and exploitative.  You didn't qualify it with "in some situations".  Have you ever asked for a raise?  By what you stated above, shouldn't that also be considered exploitative and unethical?  I mean, you are trying to make as much money as possible.

Two problems here.

A) it was a pretty blatant hypothetical. If you want a more WG-focused example, the Black Tanks seem to fit neatly. The use of Martin Shkreli was a similarly-blatant extreme, which I hoped the use of would make you reconsider your almost blanket dismissal.

 

B) (bolded) no. It does not.

I'm actually not going to address it beyond this for a moment, and see if you understand why first.

I responded to RadiantPup who specifically said that WG was being greedy, so quit trying to make this about other companies.  Try keeping things in context of the conversation.  Also, WG selling the black tanks and trying to make as much money off of them as possible, is neither exploitative, nor unethical.  It's business, and if you owned or own a business, don't even try to tell me you would try to make as little money as possible so that you aren't considered greedy.  If you try to tell me that's the case, we will both know you aren't speaking the truth.

If you have the money and already have the tanks, I'll happily take the money for the gold.

 

Yeah, this.

But it would be really nice if the surfeit of gold burned a hole in your pocket. Have a look at this tank that you didn't really want, but can now afford. Oh look, another bundle just dropped and we priced it just over the gold bundle amount. Oh, sorry, yes - you might need a bit more now.

Mmm.. we have noticed gold can be a bit moreish. But don't worry about that, here - look at this "rare" tank... Get it before it's gone, otherwise you might have to wait a week before it's back at 30% off...

Aren't we naughty?  ;)

Oh, a participation trophy guy.  Why didn't you say so?  You can just ignore everything I said then.

Um, I bought, pretty much all of them so far. About 6k battles in, I realized and excepted that I would be playing this game for a very long time, and this game is my entertainment. I probably play wot about as much as I sleep (neither are enough either :D).

 

It wasn't much long thereafter, that I set my goal on owning every tank in the game (one copy would do, not buying two i.e. reskins though). I earn every premium tank I can and save money everywhere I can in-game.

 

Why? I like playing many different tanks each day. I like crew training. I like stats, comparing them, get the feel for each and every one, because they are all different (some more than others). Some play similar, but I haven't drove one yet that felt exactly the same. I'm a collector and accepted this early on.

220+ tanks, 104 premiums.

 

Bought the Black Mega Bundle (and it truely began), only owned by previous purchase, the T34 out of that bundle. During Tankbowl, bought Team Germany Mega Bundle and a couple of American 30% off bundles with the refunded gold. Week one of March Madness bought the UK Mega Bundle (already had nearly all the US premiums by now). Week 2, picked up the French and Chinese Bundles. Week 3, got the Skoda T-40 (already had the Zizka Base), skipped on Japan because, I'm not wealthy whatsoever and would only be adding the Non-Black STA-2 (I'll get it later on, I now collect reskins as well). Week 4, yesterday, just got the Soviet Mega Bundle and was glad it included Rudy to get the 45-40% off of her, but I anticipated that.

 

These deals are AWESOME for me because, well, I am going to buy all tanks anyway. This is by far the cheapest way! I love these freakin bundles. The big ticket price with refunds matters not to me (30k gold refunded from the Soviet Mega, 10 tanks received), I'm going to need the gold soon anyway. The best bundle so far, the Black Ultimate, hands down best bang for buck, right there below the Churchill III, she will probably always hold that trophy!
