Well, I don't see them doing what the Chinese Server has done and sold tier 10s in the gift shop.

And they're certainly more credible than many other publishers...

More like WG may be truthful where it suits them financially.

 

People make the mistake of assuming general stupidity by WG when it comes to monetisation, however actually on the whole they are very smart about it. Problem is, smart does not necessarily = in the best interests of the player.

 

I believe they are truthful about not directly selling bonds, because having their rarity confirmed means they make more money in the long term through selling fotm premium tanks that are perceived to increase the chances of earning bonds in competitive play and events...

 

Notice you can't buy the Progetto 46 and the tier 8 wheeled premium right now. But with all the hype over wheeled tanks in general and the Italian tier 8 in Frontline, expect sales of both (and/or a marathon) by episode 2 or 3 of Frontline.

Oh look sale and marathon of the tier 8 wheelie.... what a shocker...

Therefore I expect Progetto on sale after episode 2.

There are challenges and there are full on grind feasts .

 

Both the Wheels event and FL are just brain numbing grind feasts . Burn out is real and WG have swung so far as to deliberately create burn out in it's player base . I wonder how many folk will have time to do Clan Wars and or any other content WG  think will be fun .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

WG has said on multiple occasions that you won't be able to buy bonds from the premium shop.

 

4th biggest lie ever ! next too "yes i'll call you in the morning", "no i will not .... in your mouth" and "the cheque is in the post"
