I remember asking about the alpine tiger during developer streams. I feel more than a little insulted to get 0 warning and several tanks released all at once. I like most of them but I'm simply not made of money. Guess they just lost sales from me

If these releases are planned months in advance, what really is going on WG? 

 

They they tell you ahead of time, you wont buy the current ones if the future ones are overall better.

It's been like this since day 1.

 

It's the same reason they power creep tanks, to keep the sheep buying tanks.

As a result lately I've been watching the timeline on PC and seeing which ones on there I want.

 

252U, Skorpion, AMX m4 MLE 49, Patriot, the chinese TD, I knew they were all coming and was holding off on buying the KV-4, t-44-100, adler, dragon, etc etc because I knew the new crop of power creep was on it's way.

 

 


 

Bring back the old chaffee!

If something doesn't make sense it's usually about money.

 

Seems to be a massive step up over the last year on premium tanks sales, has anyone actually calculated how much all these tanks would actually cost if a player bought every tank that got released?

Things like this make me feel better about not spending money anymore.

The marketing and development teams don't talk to one another. I figured that has become apparent by now.

At the same time they were hyping the release of the king dragon the T-34-85m (a tank people have requested on the forums for some time) was released without even a whisper from the marketing team. It just appeared in the store.

 

The opinion of a few forum uses does not matter in the least.  Splashy  tanks draw in revenue.

As Rai said it’s all about sales. They don’t want to ruin the Dragons Hype until sales goals are met. It’s purely that and nothing more.

Then they should reassess their sales approach. They don't realize the sales they are losing, which could, if handled properly, make them even more money. Being short sighted is what loses cash.

This is a bundle from WOT PC that took place last Thanksgiving. Watch the video to see what the poster was saying about this kind of marketing.

Seriously, Wargames acts like they’re still operating in the USSR. Never, ever give out any information if it can possibly be helped because everything is a secret, no matter how trivial. What’s coming out for sale? Wait and see comrade! Only a western imperialist would want to know what will be on sale before it is offered! :sceptic:

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

This isn't the first time tanks were released without any notice. 

 

Yet the response is always the same...we will look into doing it better next time.

 

I appreciate the sentiment, but the reality is that nothing will change.

Understood.  I appreciate your honest feedback.  I’ll talk with the team to figure out a better way to communicate new releases.  Tanks!

A better way to communicate is simple, just COMMUNICATE it in the first place. It isnt hard, or at least it shouldn’t be. Maybe for some games its not a big deal just randomly dropping new content, but for this game i feel it matters more than most. The reasons being when we get new tanks, premium or tech tree, there is generally a amount of money involved or a fairly decent amount of time needed for grinding XP or silver or both. If we had any kind of notice whatsoever, it would allow a little prep time. Time enough to budget some extra money to be able to purchase new premiums we would like, or future grind some xp and silver in advance to be able to unlock the new content the day it drops.

I would have gotten the type 62 or dragon, but skipped both after deciding against the dragon. I would have gotten the HMH M51, but prefer the rev. Rev came out as a reward. Wanted the AMX m4 49... several months went by from when it was announced till the HMH version came out. Guess what? I don't have either m4 49. Not sure who they're trying to sell stuff to, but it's put me into a doubtful/wary state with most things since I usually skip the reskin, decide against the normal version later due to changing my feelings towards it.

I am now sitting here highly tempted by the alpine tiger simply because it's a WZ-111 and it has a really nice design. Unfortunately I already have a 112, T-34-3, Type 59 of which the T-34-3 gets the most mileage by far. One thing I hate about the T-34-3 and 112 are the gun handling at times, so that part is tempting.

I saw a video on the new Alpine Tiger, no official announcement though. And it is really, really beautiful but also really, really expensive.

 

The thing that really chaps me though, is not getting Parking Pass after finally getting an On Track China event. Nine garage slots full price and 14 days premium isn't a good deal when you already bought 360 days on Black Friday and EVERY War Chest for Christmas (including all bonus chests) and the three Anniversary War Chests were also premium days make this a less than enticing deal.

 

Hate to say it because I love the game, but it just seems like the WG marketing staff suffer total disconnect from what players want.

The Heavy is gross looking, I'll buy the non-skin when that comes out in a month probably......

 

And I could care less about yet another casemate Premium TD,  I have like 10 of them already.

"It's your isp"

"because we are different from pc"

"the stats say its balanced"

"we will look into it"

"We are not removing people's favourite tank from the game"

I'm sure the reason is 1 of those.

I got a warning for a similar post gl lol xD
