Good video. It’s amazing what companies do now to get money.

Manipulation, propaganda, lies more lies to get the dough? What's new there?

 

Greed will be the end of us it's just a matter of time! 

 

Funny thought, the last big one, someone said would be dealt with sticks and stones. 

 

I don't think so, some greedy louse will want to increase his profit margin and charge way to much for the sticks and stones and nobody will want to play and they'll take their balls and go home!

Figured out why WG is a noob yet?

Fix the problems with op's, and offers immediatly, and have a disturbing variety of hype-sters. Plus the passing out of meaningless titles, like " Ambassador".

The concept is everywhere, from store "loyalty" cards and branded credit cards upwards. It is a highly effective and pervasive method of collecting data to target customers. Go and download any free app for your phone and check the permissions and data sharing, you would be amazed at how much data is collected and recycled through sharing with partners. 

 

Stuff like games that have logins will have some form of data collation to inform user habit patterns. Whether home grown or an outsourced dedicated development like this. This is why I like personal offers in this game - although they know which tanks you already own the offers are standard. They aren't targeted and tailored to the degree in the examples. They don't replace the offers with other tanks you don't own to keep the number of purchasing options up. That's a good thing. 

 

If you have a store "loyalty" card that gives you vouchers or discounts, look at the next set. Most are not discounts on things you would normally buy. They are encouraging you to buy things you normally wouldn't...

Why link a reaction video and not Jim sterlings original video that was posted months ago?

I've always said that they don't need to rig MM. They have enough built in control on how the game plays with their control of map rotation and spawn locations among other things.

 

The E25 was built for Shenanigans

The internet my friend, the internet.


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

It is just a game,play it for what it is. If you have the means and want to spend money on it you can. The only reason for us as consumers to play the game is to have fun.When the fun is gone we turn off the game. Do not miss understand I like to win and that makes if funner, but fun is my goal. When the power goes off all we have is the memories of the fun we had, the friends we meet and the darkness.

Tank on.

To me it's no different than stores placing certain merchandise in a specific location just to make you buy something.  Like candy at the counter, so that kids will beg for it while you're trying to check out, but are stuck with no place to go.
