World of Tanks Blitz decreases the cost of ‘irreplacable’ boosts

    
8

World of Tanks Blitz, the mobile offshoot of the popular multiplayer tank battler, has received flak lately for its introduction of “provisions,” strong in-game boosts that are all but mandatory now in battle. The problem is that players have found these consumables too expensive, especially when pursuing a free-to-play route.

Wargaming said that it has listened to the complaints and will reduce the cost of these boosts across the board: “The new types of consumables are irreplaceable in battles, but cause some extra expenses: You have less and less credits after each battle. We looked into the statistics on spending credits and came to the conclusion that the price for some of the provisions is actually higher than it should be, which, to a certain extent, deprived you of a comfortable experience.”

Other adjustments to World of Tanks Blitz include fixes to vehicle profitability and a lower cooldown for adrenaline and engine power boosts.

Damonvile Armsbend JayPower  I think that gold ammo is probably the best definition of pay to win. Its true that you can buy it with credits, but we have all run into the people who fill their entire ammo supply with the stuff and the only way you can do that is to back it with real money.

Armsbend Damonvile JayPower I had 5 tier 10 heavy tanks…among other things and a 56% win rate. And I managed it before you could buy gold rounds with silver and never fired a single one outside of a clan battle. It wasn’t a big deal, ppl just need excuses for losing in that game.

Damonvile Armsbend JayPower it did when I played the game.  which is why I went into the history of gold rounds.  did you make it past R8 higher than 55%?

Armsbend Damonvile JayPower As long as you shoehorn p2w into something it doesn’t mean but still manages to mean I don’t like it so it’s bad…sure you’re right, it’s pay to win.

Buying things with money in the game however doesn’t give you an advantage in a battle vrs other players who don’t. though….which is what p2w actually means.

Damonvile JayPower I quit playing when I hit 10/11 and gold rounds became fucking stupid.  Why make armor when you can bypass it for money?  They passed some ridiculous measure where you could buy with creds the same gold rounds instead of just getting rid of the armor bypassing rounds.

It’s the reason why an incredibly popular pvp game isn’t taken seriously by any of the skilled players.  I was a decent w/r when I was active at 6K games.

Its a pay to win company.

Armsbend JayPower It so is not. It’s a pay to progress faster company. 

And to answer your question jay, it’s easier to lower prices than raise them. People think they’re getting what they asked for this way.

This a habit of theirs. Intoduce a new widget, charge as much as possible for it, recieve negative outcry, then lower the price. WG is so professional on so many levels I dont understand why they continue that practice.
