Well, I tell you folks, it just doesn’t get any more ridiculous than this.
The game has been going into the shitter for years, but at a highly accelerated rate over the last year-and-a-half. But now, it seems, they’ve told Sulu to go to warp fucking 10!
First off, the spamming of premium vehicles into a game already choked to death with premium vehicles is bad enough. Rigging the MM to make those premiums bottom tier, forcing them into using gold rounds to compete, thus effectively eliminating their ability to make any credits is another.
But now, they’ve taken it out a whole new door with DELIBERATELY STEALING MONEY. No shit, folks! They are literally robbing the player base blind and they’re proud of it.
How, you ask? In a word: Tokens.
You see, the new scam by Wargaming is to make missions that you simply can’t accomplish even if you’re like Steven Sisk and have no life outside this game.
Once they make the impossible missions, they sell you Tokens. These Tokens can be used to “pay off” a part of a mission that you weren’t able to accomplish on your own because they made it impossible to do so.
Then, of course, they sell these tokens only in packs of five.
So, in a Layman’s example, they make a mission in 10 parts; then make the 9th and 10th leg of it impossible to accomplish, then you have to buy a pack of 5 tokens to finish the last two parts.
So what’s wrong with that? I mean, that leaves you three tokens left over to use on the next days mission, right?
Oh well. That’s pretty bad. But at least they get converted to the equivalent gold value since you paid real cash for them, right?
We shit you not, folks. It’s already been asked about and answered:
How ’bout ‘dat?
As if THAT wasn’t bad enough, they’ve taken it even further. You’re almost there, you’ve ALMOST got it licked, you’re on the next to the last mission and will have it all wrapped up…and then…
What the ever-loving fuck?!?! And don’t try to sell us on that shit of “it’s regular maintenance”. It’s not.
Why is it that every other game on the fucking planet can do maintenance once per week, some once per month, and it’s always done at the same exact time, the same day, at a time that effects the least number of people and is announced DAYS in advance…
but for some fucked up reason, Wargaming suddenly has to start doing it 4 times per fucking week, any time that inconvenient and completely unannounced?
We’re not the only ones noticing this either:
In the end, there’s only one reason for all of this cumulative bullshit:
It’s a money grab and they’re intentionally fucking over the player base as hard as they possibly can. The entire thing is engineered to milk what little is left of the player base bone dry.
So the next time you think about giving Wargaming some money, you might want to consider what they think of you:
THAT is EXACTLY how Wargaming sees us all. And they are acting accordingly.
